Dawn: Rise of the Occulites is the first game in the Rise of the Occulites Saga. The Saga covers the evolution of the Occulites from small tribes fighting for survival to great civilizations with massive armies spreading out across and ruling the world.
Dawn: Rise of the Occulites is a miniatures board game. Dawn takes place at the very beginning of the Occulite’s evolution. At this time, the Occulites roam the lands in small tribes, moving from cave to cave, collecting precious Sungems to keep them warm during the Long Dark. They fight over territory and resources in their struggle for survival. In the game, each player chooses an Occulite tribe and competes against each other, whether by recreating pivotal moments in their short history, or by leading the tribe through its evolution, watching it grow and advance over a series of games. Based on the information gathered by the honorary professor Charles-Darwin over thirty-odd years, this game recreates the struggles that the Occulite Tribes faced in their early days, when they were still small and scattered across the land.
It was successfully funded on Kickstarter on the 8th November 2013 and has now completed delivery to backers.
