Bugshido is a collaborative world created with my friends. Inspired by the amazing works of White Mantis, the world is inhabited by anthro insect citizens. There are dead gods, forbidden magics, imperial subterfuge, and a traveling caravan of unlikely heroes looking to save their homes.
Those that wield their rage as a blade may yet find themselves falling upon it in the end.
In the world of Bugshido, there is lingering dark magic and spirits that seek to corrupt the land and those that live in it, magnifying the darkest parts of their souls until they are consumed, becoming monsters.
Extreme negative emotions, prolonged exposure to tainted objects, and violence and death can all lead to a taint infection. Unless cleansed, it will fester, twisting the gentle spirit of a guard into a red-eyed terror...
