At the Dawn
At the Dawn is the role-playing game written in homage to JRR Tolkien’s Silmarillion, where the players take on the roles of elves, the perfect and immortal first-born, living at the dawn of creation and facing its wonders and horrors.
“…a beautiful concept. It’s amazing that Tolkein wrote four published novels plus volumes of backstory and then, historically, RPG play fixated on reenacting the Mines of Moria sequence a bazillion times.”
Redesigned and released as of 27.03.2013. At the Dawn is a role-playing game and art project about the Children of the First Land, of the West, who dwelt in the Halls of the Undying until the Enemy came and stole from them the Light of the Two Trees; they chased him to the East, into an as yet sleeping Creation, where they now dwell and wage war against dark armies in their quest to recover the Light.
