Black Dawn Games
I have been playing games my whole life. Games are a natural part of human recreation,whether sports, board games, or our favorites - fantasy games.I'll call them fantasy games for now, but what I really mean are Role-playing games and Wargames of anygenre.Most of us first met each other in the summer of 2011.Our first homebrew rules, as well as my first RPG campaign, took place in December 2011, and fromthen on, I was sold.We've had a lot of adventures together. I made this website on 2/28/15 to create a living journalof these adventures. To be entirely truthful, it was nostalgia that made me do it.I can easily recall one of my favorite moments with the guys of Black Dawn. We were sitting arounda cafeteria table, but eating be damned. We were rolled up in another world. We had something planned:It would be a 'mega-campaign' - RP sessions mixed in with wargames, based on the fantasy world ofthe Three Plains (pretty generic Tolkienesque). At the moment, we had out a marble notebook, and werescribbling down numbers and strange words -- creating a ruleset for fantasy war. An argument was brewingabout the point value of archers, and I was trying to get opinions on my idea for Half-Unicorn Mages asspecialty units.WEBSITE DIRECTORYThis website will serve as a place to collect stories from our games andpublish rules that we created.So Far, this is the only page.
