What is Bastion?
BASTION is a fantasy game set in the last city at the edge of the world. Bastion, a post-apocalyptic setting where the heroes explore the wasteland to find survivors of the final great global holocaust. At its core, Bastion is about the sacrifice the heroes will make to defend the remnants of life left in a world corrupted by a wasting plague harrowing the land.
Who do you play in Bastion?
Players take the roles of a Fihankra, a hero imbued with the power of the Adinkra symbol and enlisted to protect the city of Bastion.
There are many different symbols, and each is unique, giving the hero power beyond imagining.
A first look
Kusiwaa, Akan hero of bastion and member of the Fihankra.

That looks amazing. Any approximate timeline for when it will be available?
its moving on to editing and Im currently writing an quickstart adventure for it. I’d like to say, if all goes well, by the middle of Fall 2018.
What the project needs is art
Sounds really cool! Is it a post apocalyptic Earth or original world? Why is Akan (a real life ethnicity in Ghana) a race rather than a human sub group? Or are racial traits just culture based?

Bastion is a fantasy game the same way D&D is a fantasy game. I’ve taken a lot of influences from Akan and West African cultures. The people are Akans the same way in some fantasy games characters are Vikings.
Ah, okay, makes sense. Nice to see that you did your research and everything, can’t wait for Bastion! 😀
Thank you. I hope I can do the cultures justice. Like a lot of African Americans everything I know about Africa is self taught. I know there are glaring holes in my understanding but I have a genuine need to be apart of something greater than myself, and that thing is my tenuous grip on my African heritage.
Also, I want people to swing swords and fight monsters, so there’s that….

Yeah, I can relate. I’m also making an African-inspired setting.
Very cool. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. The more the merrier 🙂
