Bastion - The Electric Hub of Mankind

The only city that matters. Too big to fall, too complicated to function. A mess of alleyways, legalese and crowds. Aliens, Mockeries and People always in your way and your business.

Everybody’s here. 

Everything is here. 

In Deep Country, the land stretches forever. The long shadow of our embarrassing past. Villages rot away, trees don’t bother to flower anymore, and the potato is eaten cold from the ground. Things were better before. Better before Bastion. 

In the Underground are impossible tunnels beneath time and space. Devious machines release their creations into the corridors. All while the twisting network grows and touches everything. Connects everything. You can get anywhere, but there’s always a challenge. 

You have a failed career and a colossal debt.

Treasure is your only option.

A spark of hope in Electric Bastionland.

Electric Bastionland is a roleplaying game written by Chris McDowall, author of the critically-acclaimed Into The Odd. It uses and expands upon the systems developed in Into The Odd, resulting in a rules-set that’s easy to run as a Referee and even easier to play. It’s not a sourcebook or an expansion - it’s a standalone journey into an unknowable world.

Great that the book is released! The images are however very compressed och pixelated, certainly in comparison with the first release to Kickstarter backers. Could there perhaps be two versions, one smaller for older tablets and a higher resolution version for desktops?

I'm looking at doing a high-res version a little further down the line, so it's definitely going to happen at some point.

Is there a higher resolution available elsewhere for backers?

Michael, the first PDF we got via the Backerkit had images with higher resolution.

Is there going to be a print on demand option?

No plans for PoD yet, as I've done a print run that should cover demand for a good while. I'll be posting information about how to buy those books (if you didn't already pre-order) when they land.

I never heard of this until the last few days. I'd be really interested in buying a copy!

I'm confused. The price for the PDF is $19, and on the side, the amount of pages listed is 336, which would indicate that the document listed here is the complete version of Electric Bastionland. However, in the beginning of the description of this item, it says "Check out this free preview." There's no extra link that brings you to a free preview, which indicates that the item posted above is a preview. So, which is it? Preview or full final text?

The description has been changed. This is the full retail version.

Thanks for spotting the error there. It's all fixed now and this is indeed the full version.

Original electronic
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.
