Full Playthrough of the Introductory Scenario of Dawn’s Core Rules Video

G’day guys,

If you’re interested to see how the Core rules in Dawn – Rise of the Occulites plays out, check out the video below. It is a 34 minute video, but it shows you a full game using the Core rules from start to finish and includes rules explanations as we play. As always if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask and we hope that you enjoy the video!

  1. Thanks for the new video! I already watched the old gameplay video without the hexes some long time ago and already liked that iteration of the game, but like the new one even more!!! 

    I really would like to give it a try myself. Do you already make the cards and rules in whatever lowres form available to the public so i could print them out myself? Or even could translate them to german and print them on a service as artscow or german equivalent service and would order some miniatures as well and paint them up to have the whole feel of the game myself. I think the lovely miniatures really add sooo much to an interesting looking game!!! 

    Nonetheless (with or without game) i will do a mini preview based on the information you gave us here on the site and in the video for my http://www.twitter.com/8910spielen followers and readers of the Blog, to get some interest for your cool projects here!

    I have a question: If i would order some tribes now, could i get doubles with the later released boardgame? If that could be possible could you give me a hint, what tribes might not be included in the game? 

    I really like the 3d hexes you used for your game. Are they from another game or do you built them yourself? 

    Cheers and all the best with your four games in the future!!!!

      G’day Jens,

      Thanks for posting and really glad you are interested in the game.

      There is some very exciting news coming shortly, but I will say that we will be aiming to release all the tribes for the boardgame – not all in the base box, but that we will be aiming to get them out quickly. So yes, there would be doubles. My recommendation would be to wait for some forthcoming information (as soon as I have the go ahead) as the metal tribes most likely won’t be available separately for much longer… 🙂

      The 3D hexes were from Heroscape – I just painted and flocked them to make them more visually appealing. 🙂
      Feel free to email me on benATdarwin-games.com.au if you have any more questions.

      • Hi Ben,

        thanks for the answers. As it looks like a switch from your metal to other ones metal 🙂 or a different material at all, i really have to think about ordering now; but on the other hand it is metal and i could start painting them now… ;-))

        Painted and flocked up heroscape tiles is a good idea, i might join you in converting mine as well!

    G’day again Jens,

    No problems. The metal ones won’t be available for much longer. If released as a boardgame, the figures will not be metal, but instead plastic. But again, more concrete information will be forthcoming soon. Watch this space. 🙂
