Welcome to Bastion

In ages past we walked the land with purpose. Our heads were held high and we were the kings of everything that fell beneath our gaze. Relying on the stories of great heroes, we never truly believed it could come to end.

It did, over a hundred year cycle the end came. There was no one evil nor was it all the work of the darkness. In fact it came from our inability to hold in check our very strengths and to exploit our own weaknesses.

So they pushed us back to one island, one city, one strip of land. They caged us in a cage of our own making. We consented to it and here we sit.
