The BASTION Kickstarter: Who are the Fihankra?

A Peek Inside the Bastion Kickstarter

Fihankra

BASTION-Glory_of_the_Sisters(Fi-Han-Kra)
The Fihankra are the greatest warriors that have ever treaded the dying land of Ife Oodaye.  The sigil carved into the center of their foreheads resembles a slash of flame.  The same fire glows within the pools of their eyes.  Although this order was instrumental in preventing Lord Obonsam from scattering the last of the great races of Ife Oodaye, it is nonetheless feared.  Even the great Akan king fears the power of this ancient order.

Along with sacrificing their bodies, the Fihankra forsake many things, in favor of protecting Bastion from the remnants of Lord Obonsam’s army.  They are also instrumental in preserving the populace from the ravages of the Gray Mist.

The Doom Riders (as they are also known) continually venture forth into the depths of the Gray Waste.  They search for survivors; they explore ancient ruins; and they hunt down prides of deformed beasts as well as the malingering dead.  Many of the Fihankra fail to return from their lonely patrols.  Sadly, some blame the Fihankra for the Gray Mist.  They suggest that this ancient band of warriors brought forth the mist so that they could use it as a pretext to gain control of Bastion through fear and manipulation.

All the great races can become Fihankra.  The annals of this order include Akan, Tunannu, Rijal-Alhajar, Umbari, and Solari heroes. These individuals have shouldered the burden of this terrifying power and use it to serve Bastion.

  • 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.

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!
