BASTION_Mock-Up

Bastion_Banner_Ani-What_is

BASTION is a fantasy game set in the last city at the edge of the world. Bastion is a post-apocalyptic game where the heroes go into the wasteland to find survivors of the last great global holocaust that has corrupted all life. At its core Bastion is about the sacrifice the heroes will make to save the remnants of life left in the world and looking for a way to push back the warping plague that has harrowed the world for hundreds of years.

Bastion is an Afro-Centric fantasy horror game where decay and the warping power of animated chaos twists everything it touches.

 

Bastion_Banner_Ani-GameSystem

Bastion is a supplement using the MYTHIC D6 game system. Playing Bastion requires the MYTHIC D6 core book, a handful of dice and an awesome attitude.

Bastion_Banner_Ani-Influences

The following writers shaped and influenced the concepts in Bastion and without them, perhaps Bastion would be much different.

  • Charles R. Saunders: For the Imaro series of book.
  • Michael Moorcock: His Eternal Champion and the odd description of the warping influence of chaos.
  • Clark Ashton Smith: For all the weird world of sword and sorcery fantasy, he delivered in his time.
  • Glenn Cook: For the Black Company Series
  • Stephen King: For the horror novella, The Mist

 

Bastion_Banner_Ani-Heroes

Bastion is a post-apocalyptic game where the heroes go into the wasteland to find survivors of the global holocaust that corrupted all life. At its core, Bastion is about the sacrifice the heroes will make to push back the warping plague harrowing the earth.

The players of Bastion take on the roles of a Fihankra, the security, and shields of the people of Bastion.

The Fihankra are the greatest warriors that have ever walked the dying land of Ife Oodaye. The sigil carved into the center of their foreheads resembles a slash of blue of flame. The same blue fire glows within the pools of their eyes.

Gen Con 2018, or “How Jerry spent his 8th grade summer”

I spent a week in Indianapolis doing the Gen Con thing. IPR (A.K.A. Indie Press Revolution) sold MYTHIC D6 and allowed me the luxury of walking the halls, play games, and give away MYTHIC D6 books to anyone that found me. I had a great time and saw a lot of excellent and creative games.

 

Below is a picture of my haul from Gen Con this year, but the best thing I took away from it all was the experience and memories of meeting so many beautiful people. It’s stunning to meet so many diverse people that share the same enthusiasm and love for the hobby.

My tribe. Even with all our weird hang up, geekeries, and oddness I love you all. We are a beautiful thing, and when we congregate and make that gestalt uber-nerd, it’s even better.

 

I am Gamer, and we are many

 

I hope to see more of you next year!

Update of my Wednesday Gen Con Escapades!

20180801_182554

Someone noticed my soggy pants and go a book yesterday evening. I was spotted inside the Loughmillers Pub and Eatery scraping leftover food off plates into my duffel bag (Pro Tip: Find the busboy station for the best grub)

This could be you in the picture if you find me and say the phrase.
