Borja Pindado creates an epic scene of post-apocalyptic action adventure, steeped in the potent mystery and thrill of investigating H.P.Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos
Borja is one of three artists who have been working on the Yellow Dawn project since I started writing the new 3rd edition in January (2015). With a deal on the table from Modiphius (Achtung! Cthulhu) under their license with Chaosium for Call of Cthulhu products, the 3rd Edition of Yellow Dawn has been written to work alongside CoC 7th Edition rules.
I briefed Borja to create a scene that conveys the idea of the Earth becoming a “new wilderness”, littered with the ruins of Dead Cities where strange and alien horrors now lurk. I wanted the cover to convey a blend of scavenged military equipment and medieval revivalism. And beside all this tactical gear, firearms, leather armour and bows, there is the raw awakened power of the Road Mage wielding an old magic.
Dead Cities are where scavengers go to risk their sanity and their mortal life for plunder. But the world of Yellow Dawn includes a vast, almost limitless range of genre and style of play. From the high-octane, high-technology and low street culture grime of Living Cities with their Cyberpunk glare, through to cautious investigations among rural settlements that cling close to the boundaries of these rare Living Metropolises. And beyond, into the deep plunge of the unknown New Wilderness, along lonely roads and over rugged terrain, to where survivors have been cut off and isolated for a decade or more, since the apocalyptic event known as Yellow Dawn first struck the Earth and ushered in the Age of Hastur.
Here’s the new cover:
