1024x400_Bastion_Battle

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.

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

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.

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…

Project: Mythic sneak peek

Project: Mythic!

Project: Mythic is moving along and the MYTHIC D6 book is almost done and ready for consumption.

What is project MYTHIC?

Superheroes vs. Monsters! This is the world of Mythic, a world where superhuman heroes battle the forces of a shadowy dimensional incursion, while dealing with infighting and betrayals that threaten to tear their lives apart. Until recently, Earth’s history was pretty much as we know it today. With one exception…

At the end of World War II, superhumans emerged briefly and fought in several battles before dropping out of sight once again. Some conspiracy theorists claim that it was a hoax intended to intimidate the enemy, while others claim that a shadowy cabal of superhumans now rule the world from an orbital satellite. Whatever the truth, nobody saw a superhuman for the next 60 years and most people believed them to be a myth, or just some secret service agents in capes.

MYTHIC D6 Progress Report

Almost Done!

MYTHIC D6 is in the final phase of the layout, and the artwork is coming along. Now that the holidays are over we can go full steam ahead with all the loose ends and get this done for everyone. I hope to have the book complete and ready for the printers by February.

Project: Mythic, the core book’s setting, showcases the rules in a superheroic horror setting inspired by B.P.R.D, Fringe, and Supernatural.

I’m so excited, and can’t wait to show the world the finished MYTHIC D6 core book!

MYTHIC D6 still in full effect!

The MYTHIC D6 Kickstarter ended a few weeks ago, and now the real work begins.

Tons of stuff going at once to get MYTHIC D6 finished and out the door. December is a funky month with everyone doing holiday stuff, but January brings new energy to the MYTHIC D6 project.

Even though we didn’t reach any of the world book stretch goals, they are still in the works, and I have art samples to prove it.

 

MYTHIC D6 Refining Area

Those that have the Beta copy of the game (remember, you have access through the Kickstarter) can look over the book and relay the gaffs they find to me through the comment section on the KS or over at RPG.net. Any help is appreciated, and I want to hear what everyone thinks about MD6 (just made that up. Now I want to listen to the MC5s)

Thanks again for all the PMA.

Talk to you soon
