Sunup. The cockpit smells like smoke and grease, but outside, in the cloud's rosy glow, there's something that looks like hope. Or maybe it's just an enemy pilot.

Dawn comes, and with it, the salvo of spells from the enemy's fortifications. But you know who's commanding those forces - and you know she'll listen to reason. Stay focused on that shield spell, and maybe you can make it to the other side.

It's daybreak on the battlefield - and the war is fiercer than ever. 

Daybreak on the Battlefield is a supplement for Girl by Moonlight, featuring four new playbooks;

  • The Rising Star, an unstoppable talent at the core of the team - but can they withstand the weight of everyone's expectations? Inspired by Amuro Ray, Kamille Bidan, Steven Universe (Future), and Van Fanel
  • The Dissident, a skeptic or other malcontent, who loves the team but might have their own reasons for doubt. Inspired by Lapis Lazuli, Kai Shiden, and Elan Ceres (#5).
  • The Firebrand, a righteous champion who's unafraid to take a stand for what they believe in - even when it puts them at odds with their friends. Inspired by Rei/Sailor Mars, Bismuth, and Judau Ashta.
  • The Essence, a supportive teammate whose transcendent power might be slight, but has other ways to help. Inspired by Chibiusa, Merle, Elpeo Ple, and sidekicks like Kero and Luna.

Included is the early first draft of a Series Playset, inspired by Gundam 0079 and the Universal Century, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power; Daybreak on the Battlefield supports a team engaged in a struggle for their ideals in a war against an enemy that's also fighting for what they believe in. Prove the strength of your conviction, wield the weapons of your heart, fight against other transcendent heroes, and make a difference in the world! But is the power of transcendence enough to overcome the evils of war and the strength of armies...?

Just skimmed through these and I love them all.  Can't wait to see the playset!. GbM is an awesome framework and I'm happy to finally see some additional unofficial content for it!


Thank you so much!
