Yellow Dawn Session Notes 15th July ¦ Getting inside the professor’s notes

Yellow Dawn – The Age of Hastur, first published in 2007, is an RPG written by British Science Fiction & Dark Fantasy author David J Rodger – it blends the Cthulhu Mythos and cyberpunk genres in a post-apocalyptic setting. It also has three novels set within it: Dog Eat Dog, The Black Lake and The Social Club.


Resume 8th May YD+10 @ 2pm

Focussing on Bella and Winter in Living City of Montpellier (leaving Brendan and Aaron parked in Aigues-Mortes 2pm @ 8th May, see previous session notes for their status)

Bela and Winter at in Engineering Faculty at Montepellier Uni, talking with three academics – about Professor Graham Deucan – about his “discovery” 12 months ago and the way he university started funding important lecture trips around France. But how several months later he started behaving very strangely; paranoid and accusing colleagues of trying to steal his ideas. Ultimately leading to him being sent away on stess leave,

Bela and Winter get on well with academics who give them Deucan’s home address in nice area of Living City.

Bela and Winter go there; find keys and gain entry without raising suspicion. They discover smashed prototypes in basement workshop / lab. Winter collects samples of white power coating many of the internal glass components. Find secret notebook in Study and Deucan’s diary.  Can’t read it – is all in French – but that night, in their hostel in Montpellier, they pay somebody with beer to read and translate – and also find hidden map showing location of mound with cave, between Sondreime (which Bela and Winter know is 20 miles north west of Aigues-Mortes – and survives today as a settlement), and another place they have never heard of.
