folkloreWhile at Origins I took some time with TwinFire Production and looked in  detail at Folklore the Affliction.   Folklore the Affliction is a Kickstarter project scheduled for the fall of 2014.   The game is a classic horror storytelling game that uses nuances of table top role playing with board game mechanics.   We did this from the Crown with only natural light, I think it kind of adds to the theme of the the game.

CoBI was fortunate enough to sit down with Erik Mona from Paizo and chat about things.   I’m not sure where we started but we discuss, The Emerald Spire, Paizo Con, The massive Gen Con Role play session, and more.   This interview is packed with juicy information.


With everything Erik has said I really can’t wait for Gen Con 2014  and my first, yet to be determined, trip to Paizo Con.

And check out our Kickstarter The Convention Experience.

The Convention Experience is Live on Kickstarter

Gen con 014I am proud to announce that our Kickstarter project is live!  The project is all about what it means to attend a convention on a media level as well as an attendee.  Which is really pretty loaded.  But it is really so much more than those simple words.  The project reflects who we are at Through Gamer Goggles.

It will go beyond just footage of the convention and create personal experiences of backers.  It took me quite a bit of time to figure out a way that I could give this project back to those who support it with a little more meaning.

Check it out on Kickstarter!
