Epidemic is owned and operated by Greg Dent and Todd Morash, formers directors of Bastion Press, and co-creators of the Oathbound Campaign setting.

About Us

Todd and I are gamers. When we left Bastion Press, we had no idea we'd be getting the Oathbound license back in our hands, so we spent seven years developing other campaigns and making much better money in mundane day jobs. However, once again, the stars seem to have aligned in our favor, and thanks to a small contribution from our "silent" partner, Oathbound is alive again! But the best part is... that's just the beginning. We've got a ton of great material piled up and ready to be realized, but we don't want to rush it. We intend to finish what we started: complete the Domains of the Forge even better and brighter than before and take it to the next level.

We've got plans we don't even know about yet!

Our Management

Greg Dent - President

Level 12 Human Warrior - Level 4 Nerd
Str: 13
Int: 18
Wis: 12
Dex: 11
Con: 13
Cha: 10
Hp: 115
Ac: 20
Special Abilities: Fix Anything, Hypergrouch, Unpredictability

Our fearless leader may have a few phobias (such as taxis and fish), but he doesn't shy away from a challenge. Greg is an "outside the box" kind of guy. In fact, he doesn't even remember where he put the box, and may have used the instruction manual to kindle a campfire. If the seat of his pants didn't log frequent flyer miles, well... we wouldn't have a company.

Todd Morasch - Vice President

Level 16 Space Cat Oracle
Str: 11
Int: 14
Wis: 15
Dex: 11
Con: 10
Cha: 20
Hp: 97
Ac: 30
Special Powers: Bald face lie, Generate NPC army, Opponents cursed with critical fumbles.

Todd's brain has a direct connection to the font of all creative knowledge. We basically just have to power him on and write down everything he says. Unfortunately, not everything he says has a proper translation in human language. Scratch that... most things.

Justin Jones - Silent (but Deadly) Partner

Level 10 Human Ranger
Str: 12
Int: 15
Wis: 12
Dex: 16
Con: 12
Cha: 16
Hp: 88
Ac: 26
Special Powers: Stinking Cloud, Always wins initiative, Advanced Sniping (even with cat paws), Mutant Bladder

Imagine if a badger had a really big rifle. Justin isn't afraid of a little conflict... actually, he's not afraid of most any kind of conflict and frequently will fly into battle against ridiculously powerful creatures. Why he's not dead yet, we're not sure, but maybe someone should do a study.

Tyeman Chau - Field Mechanic

Level 5 Human Samurai - Level 10 Engineer
Str: 12
Int: 20
Wis: 11
Dex: 13
Con: 13
Cha: 12
Hp: 110
Ac: 19
Special Powers: Divine Wrath, Read Circuitry, Swearin'

Tyeman's like that lovable guy that is always sweatin' away in the engine room doing somthing that must be important because the ship keeps running even against all odds, only he also can kill you dead with his sword, and we never really asked, but he probably can make something pretty tasty out of your remains too.
