Got my hands on beta version of 3rd Edition Yellow Dawn

First Printed Copy of the 3rd Edition of Yellow Dawn – The Age of Hastur

Tangible evidence of the months of brain burn and going stir crazy since I started writing the 3rd edition. Started in January and finished the first edit near the end of July. Super quick turnaround by LULU on printing it up.  This is a beta copy so I can start play-testing with my group next month.  The cover is just some of the new artwork from inside and is not the final version.  Really looking forward to playing again. Working on the 3rd edition every day, full time, for months, meant that the last thing I wanted to do on an evening was sit down and play it – hence the massive upsurge in playing Dominion, Car Wars, Fury of Dracula (1987) and Warrior Knights (1986).

The 3rd Edition is part of the publishing deal on the table with Modiphius (Achtung! Cthulhu) under license from Chaosium.  It has been written to work seamlessly with Chaosium’s 7th edition rule set.  Another reason why I am so excited about playing it.  Massive increase in game speed and decrease in dice crunchy tables and rule lawyers. It’s all about the narrative baby!

  1. Great milestone!

    Looks nice with that cover – evocative and atmospheric.

    I’m intreagued as to what the final version’s artwork will be (btw, really liked YD2.5 softback’s cover art)

    • Hi Rob. Yeah the cover is some of the epic internal artwork by one of the three super talented artists who signed-on to be a part of the project. The new cover is yet to be briefed. I too love the old cover – subtle but atmospheric. It will feature as internal art for the 3rd edition. :o)
