Description Edit | History

Publisher's blurb:

The Dawnline is a tabletop roleplaying game about a group of vampires protecting a nomadic village on a world where day and night are places, and where all of society lives in the twilight in between.

The vampires depend on their village for blood and companionship. Without the humans, they would starve in the wasteland or forget themselves as they regress into feral states.

At the same time, the village depends on the vampires. The twilight they travel through is not safe. It is filled with strange ruins, desperate raiders, feral vampires, other villages, and creatures from the Dark ahead.

Only the vampires can protect the village, and only the village can shelter the vampires.

If their alliance comes apart, there will be nothing left of either of them but ash on the Dawnline.

--

Inspired by games like The Banner Saga, Darkest Dungeon, Ryuutama, Fate of the Norns, and novels like Vampire Hunter D, The Dawnline is a gothic desertpunk Oregon Trail where the players take the roles of immortal guardians defending a village as it treks endlessly through the twilight.

Play in The Dawnline is split into two phases, with the PCs going out to explore an interesting site or deal with an imminent threat, and then returning home to address problems in the village. In addition to creating their PCs, The Dawnline also has players create this village, and supporting and upgrading it is as much a part of gameplay as diving into ruins and fighting monsters. Both the vampires and the village can die, but no death ever ends the game. An unprotected village finds new guardians, and village-less vampires become the protectors of a new community.

The Dawnline uses a 3d6, roll-over dice system for quick conflict resolution, but the game mechanics prioritize decision-making over luck. Every PC has a moderately-sized, easily refillable pool of Willpower that they can spend to tilt the odds on any given roll, and the same pool is used to fuel special powers and abilities, to block attacks, to hit harder, to act faster, and to bend the odds in the PCs' favors. Of course, enemies have similar pools, and a PC that spends big on a single action is left with less in their pool to defend against an enemy's follow-up.
