The Arsenal

Here’s the deal with the Arsenal.  I haven’t told you all of the story yet, so I ain’t gonna share all my thought on the weapons here in Caelondia.  When you learn about a new weapon, I’ll tell you what I think about the Kid’s choice of weaponry.  So for now, here’s what we got.

Cael Hammer
A repeater goes with a hammer better than a box of nails.
Ain’t much Kid can’t handle with hammer and bow in hand.
Kid’s ready to slice them up and pound them to bits if they get in his way.
Kid’s ready to get real personal with hammer and musket in hand.
A pair of Slinger pistols is just the ticket if a hammer’s too slow.
Can’t decide between a hammer and a Brusher’s Pike? Take both.
A hammer and an army carbine. When I was a fighting man, I used the very same.
Got a feeling those tools ain’t just for use at the old Forge.
With that mortar and hammer, he’s like a one-man demolition squad.
The power of the Calamity ain’t well understood, but a hammer sure is.

Fang Repeater
A repeater goes with a hammer better than a box of nails.
With the bow and repeater at the ready, Kid aims to keep a safe distance.
The repeater and machete, favored choices of the Ura hunters we once fought.
Doesn’t hurt having a couple of trusty old guns on hand.
Kid must think he’s the fastest shot in all the land. He probably is.
With a pike and repeater in hand, he’s like a man come straight from the Wilds.
Figures it’s a good time to put his favorite two firearms to the test.
Now he can light them up or pin them down. Maybe both.
Kid’s ready to hit them fast and hit them hard.
Fill them with needles or blast them to bits? Tough call.

Breaker’s Bow
Ain’t much Kid can’t handle with hammer and bow in hand.
With the bow and repeater at the ready, Kid aims to keep a safe distance.
A bow and a machete, every bit as effective as the fancier stuff.
A bow ain’t much good in a crowd, but a musket sure is.
Even our lightest ranged weapons are not to be taken lightly.
Kid don’t always care for fancy guns and things. A bow and pike will do just fine.
Best not let them get too close if you only got a Bow and a Carbine.
Bow and bellows make a strange and fearsome team.
Sometimes arrows ain’t enough, so the Kid packs something bigger, just in case.
We’ve fought with bows for centuries. Calamity Cannons, not so much.

War Machete
Kid’s ready to slice them up and pound them to bits if they get in his way.
The repeater and machete, favored choices of the Ura hunters we once fought.
A bow and a machete, every bit as effective as the fancier stuff.
Anything survives a musket shot ought to be quick work for that blade.
Want to stay alive in the Wilds, pack a pair of pistols and a good blade.
Normally I wouldn’t care to see a Kid with a pike and machete in either hand.
Machete and Carbine still go well together, just like in the war.
We could have a fine old cookout with that stuff. Too bad that’s not the plan.
Walk by a Kid with a machete and a mortar, you just keep on walking.
If there’s anything that blade can’t split open, a cannon ought to do it.

Scrap Musket
Kid’s ready to get real personal with hammer and musket in hand.
Doesn’t hurt having a couple of trusty old guns on hand.
A bow ain’t much good in a crowd, but a musket sure is.

Nothing subtle about those guns, but maybe that’s the point.

No more fooling around, time to roll out the big guns and get this over with.
Ever see a Kid with a musket and fire bellows? Bit of a disturbing sight.
That’s some heavy duty hardware. Not exactly the most delicate pairing.
Kid’s loaded down with some of Caelondia’s finest firearms.

Dueling Pistols
A pair of Slinger pistols is just the ticket if a hammer’s too slow.
Kid must think he’s the fastest shot in all the land. He probably is.

He’s a spitting image of Slinger Jawson with that Pike and them Pistols.
Now that’s a lot of guns for just one kid, but he can hold his own.
Wouldn’t have thought to bring a bellows to a shootout, but it just might work.
With all that firepower, Kid looks like he’s ready to raid a fort.
Anything gets past that Cannon, those Pistols can finish it quick.

He’s a spitting image of Slinger Jawson with that Pike and them Pistols.
Sometimes a Brusher’s Pike just ain’t enough. That’s what the Carbine’s for.
Stick them and cook them. Or the other way around, makes no difference.
A pike and a galleon mortar? Now that’s some terror from the high seas.

About the Story

The Bastion Story is a transcription of the narration of the game Bastion by Supergiant Games. It has been painstakingly copied word for word from the game itself, and double-checked with the subtitles files, although there still may be a few typos hiding around. To differentiate itself from a simple copy-pasta, The Bastion Story is an attempt to turn the narration into an actual oral story, like how Rucks told their story to Zia. As such, most of the “story” will be directly from the game, and only a few extra sentences will be included, to add coherence.  These extra sentences are a slightly different shade of color, so it is easier to separate from the narration.

About the Storyteller

The Bastion Story is small project by Imag, a nerd. After completing Bastion, he wanted to share the amazing story with his friends. His plan was to transcribe the entire narration of the game, then tell the story of the Kid and the Bastion while sitting around a campfire at night with friends. Sadly, since the narration is around 3,000 lines long and Imag doesn’t go out if he can avoid it (the sun, you see, it burns him), he can’t. Therefore, he offers his version of the story to the only place that might accept his wasted hours of typing: the internet.  He’s not a very experienced author, though.  He’s never written fanfic or any sort of story, only a few hours spent on role-playing forums.  But he does his best, trying to keep Rucks’ personality alive in his additions, and is open to any constructive criticism.

So enjoy, if you wish.
