ION GUARD - BASH! edition

A supplement designed to mimic space-faring heroes, especially the Green Lantern Corps. The serial numbers have been filed off, but barely. There is also a not subtle adaptation of Galactus and his heralds. I bought the supplement as I was running a space-based BASH! mini-campaign at the time. Unfortunately I did not find enough material in the text to help my game. This is an Ion Guard supplement, and not a "supers in space" supplement. But if you plan on using the Ion Guard organization (or the Green Lantern Corps), then by all means pick this up.

Creator Reply:
The concept was to deliberately make a very clear and heartfelt homage to the source material it was based on, source material that had, quite frankly, not been touched on in supers supplements much at all. This issue is specifically advertised as being about the ION Guard organization itself and their key foes, not a generic "supers in space" supplement. I'm sorry it didn't help your game, but it is very much what it was intended and advertised to be.

If you need a reason to buy BASH then this is it. At just about 60 pages this supplement presents the Intergalactic Ordinance Network Guard or ION Guard, an intergalatic police force defending the universe from all sorts of bad guys. Yes we have seen this before, but the the presentation in this book is so enduring you ignore the obvious DNA of this product and just pull on your ION Fist, say your Oath and protect the Galaxy. NPCs are detailed as well as bad guys for you to fight. The layout of the book is awesome and I honestly can't say enough good about it.

Like: Everything about it really.

Dislike: would have liked to see more bad guys.

Want: The same book for other games! Icons (which is has) and Mutants and Masterminds.

This is an exemplary product. It is a source book on bringing the ION Guard to your BASH UE game. The ION Guard is a pretty close analog to DC's Green Lanterns or Marvel's Nova Corps. The book includes a history of the guard, a description of their hierarchy, their rules, and their unique piece of equipment, the ION Fist.

Everything about it is top-rate. The art fits the tone of the book perfectly, the formatting and layout is fresh and easy on the eyes, and the words read as though written by one with a true love and passion for the subject matter.

I can count the number of times I've read through a rulebook or supplement in one sitting. This is one of the 2 that I've ever been so compelled to finish without a break of any sort (Day After Ragnarok is the other, in case anyone's intersted). The author loves his characters and the game universe he's placed them in, and it shows. After reading it, there's a vibrant world of adventure that screams to be played in - with ample descriptions and motivations for the organization, the home-world, the mission, the adversaries.

I've never been a huge 'Lantern' or 'Nova' fan, but after reading ION Guard cover to cover, I'm excited to play a Supers game in space. I couldn't be happier with the purchase, and would happily buy a print edition should it come out later. It's that slick.

An excellent start to a promising new series of sci-fi themed super-hero books for the BASH! Rpg line (though easily converted and used for other supers rpgs as well). Strong production values, top quality cover and interior art, solid writing (though a few too many exclamation points in some places), and plenty of places where the players/game masters can add their own details. Ideal for anyone looking to add Lensman/Lantern/Spaceknights to their campaigns. Looking forward to the next book of the series.
