The Storied Bastion


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

As part of our Bardic Origins series, this release includes a detailed setting, NPCs, and a one-shot adventure, as well as two new items to add flavour to your game.

Deep in the wilderness atop a 1000 foot high cliff stands an institution dedicated to the cultivation and preservation of the bardic arts: The Storied Bastion.

Within the bastion's walls a cadre of elder scholars known as the Anthologists work to shepherd their fellow bards through the first and last chapters of their life stories. Part elite academy and part retirement village, scholars throughout the realm know the Storied Bastion as the site of the greatest archive of bard's tales ever compiled.

Detailed Setting and Backstory Options

This release includes key NPCs, sights and features, and history for the Storied Bastion. All ready to slot into your world. It also includes notes on how a bard from the bastion distinguishes themselves from the common breed of troubadour, to guide NPC or character creation.

Shibelurn's Wrath

A tale of bardic misadventure leading a party into adventure at the Storied Bastion. A black dragon wants to song written about her to be removed from the anthologists' collection and destroyed, and she's willing to tear the whole place down to have her way!

Balanced for 3-6 players at level 5-9. Around 3-4 hours of play.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
