Folklore and fairy tales
Doolin is calling. Two very different people gather together in a small Irish town. Keats is a journalist in an occult journal who received a suggestion on strange events. Ellen is a university student whose mother (dead) has signaled her to come back. Their paths cross and they discover they are both there for a common cause: to cross the hedge in the underworld to discover the truth behind the murders of nearly a decade. In addition, they interact with supernatural characters such as faerie, people and half-lives.
Once you go to the underworld, Folklore turns into a role-playing game. You must follow the stories of Keats and Ellen to find out the truth about what is happening and why they were called to Doolin. Go through the phases in the underworld. Each character plays a little differently, but both capture people, equip them, and then invoke them for certain types of fighting skills. Keats is very offensive and in the face with his physical attacks at close range. In the same way, his are very strong. Ellen is more like a magician, because she uses ranged attacks and has a wider range of folk skills that can be offensive, defensive, and supportive.
What's the folklore enter with the holidays?
Folklore It came out at a time when companies were just starting to offer DLC with games. As a gift for the players, Sony has released the Folklore Add-on for parties as a gift for fans. It was a rather exciting thing, since he did what the paid extras did. The people had two costumes for the protagonists that were holidays, a people that perfectly adapted to the Christmas period and a search for Keats to be undertaken in the fourth chapter.
It's the holiday season and the Bridge House Pub night bartender has a big problem. He needs a Christmas present. But there is nothing he can do. The only one that can help is Keats. Thus begins the "Visitor of the Holy Night". The Grab Bag, a folk that is a giant gift, has taken the possible gift. Keats must chase him through the underwater city to settle things, taking Grab Bag as a people in the process. Once you have it, both Keats and Ellen can use these people for short-range attacks to throw up presents to their opponents. Because, you know, it's the holiday season.
