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.

MYTHIC D6 status update

MYTHIC D6 update and my new BFF Brian Isikoff

MYTHIC D6 Status Report

Hello Everyone, remember me?

The books are almost to port!

Once they are through customs, they will be ships to the warehouse and distribution points. Once that’s all settled I can start shipping the books out to the backers.

I hope to have the process well on its way and done by the end of August. That’s my hope.

While I’m waiting for the book, I’m also working on other MYTHIC D6 project sand I hope to have all the stretch goals finished.

As an aside

I made the trip to the Bay Area to run a special game of MYTHIC D6 for Brian Isikoff. He was owed a game, and I was excited to run it.

Some may know Brian from his podcast 2D5 in a Random Direction

http://2d6feet.com/

And as promised, I ran a game of his choice using the MYTHIC D6 system. We settled on a Star Wars KotOR game, and it was a blast. I hope he enjoyed the game because I thoroughly enjoyed running it for him. We played upstairs at Endgame in Oakland (if you’re in the area check the store out).

It’s a great store, and I enjoyed Brian’s company immensely. He’s a great guy and a very clever role-player. When the game was over, I lamented that we didn’t live closer. He’s a great guy and always welcomed at any table I sit at. He’s a good human being with a tremendous amount of character and generosity. I appreciate him as a person, and I look forward to visiting again to hang out and talk some more.

What’s the status of MYTHIC D6?

MYTHIC D6 Status Report

Hello Everyone, remember me?

Jerry D. Grayson, Gold Medal winner of the 1996 Navel Stuffing Championship held in Muncie Indiana?

Skin tag eating bronze medal winner 1997?

Elbow lotion application champion 2003?

Arepa juggler silver medal winner 2010?

No?…fair enough, it was a long time ago. Ahhhh my heyday

Its been a while since I last updated you on MYTHIC D6. I’ve been busy putting the book together and making something presentable that everyone can enjoy. I’ve also been plugging away at Bastion, Terra Oblivion, and a few other projects.

I’m also sluggish, self-involved, and really enjoy watching B-Movies in my spare time…so there’s that.

What is the status of MYTHIC D6, what is going on with all that Kickstarter money? Well, beyond getting a cool tattoo of a manatee on my face, I’ve been buying art, paying editors, and doing the layout.

The book is done and at the printers…don’t believe me, look at what I got in the mail yesterday…
