Bugs: Recent Topics Paging, Uploading Images & Preview (11 Dec 2020)
Recent Topics paging, uploading images and preview bugs require a patch which has not yet been released.
What is your (current) favorite game? Kemet
This module replaces the “Determining Turn order” phase (A.4 in the base game rulebook).
However, the Dawn phase is ignored on the first turn. Turn order for the first turn is
therefore still determined randomly.
How to gain a Dawn token ?
Dawn tokens are obtained during battles. A player who loses a battle or who loses all units
during a battle gains a Dawn token of value “+1 strength” at the end of the battle. A player
can own an unlimited number of Dawn tokens.
The Dawn Value
During the Dawn phase, players must resolve a mandatory battle to determine the turn
order for the next Day phase. For this, starting with the player on the last space of the turn
order track and moving in reverse turn order, each player:
• MUST play a Battle card face-up
• MUST discard a Battle card face-down
• CAN spend one or more Dawn tokens.
The Dawn value corresponds to the sum of the strength value of the revealed Battle card
and the bonuses from the Dawn tokens that were spent.
Important! Only the strength value of the revealed Battle card is taken into account. The
other characteristics of the card are ignored.
Each player does this in reverse turn order, up to the player placed in first position on the
turn order track.
The player with the highest Dawn value places his order marker on the space of his choice
on the turn order track. Then, in decreasing Dawn value order, each player does the same,
placing his order marker on a free space of the turn order track. In case of a tie, the previous
turn order breaks the tie. Therefore the player who was earlier in the former turn order wins
ALL Dawn tokens played during this Dawn phase are then discarded.

Though they don't honestly share many mechanisms, they feel like kissing cousins.
I have not but its "on the list" of things I am interested in. Unfortunately for it, it shared the Greek god theme with Cyclades and the general battle theme with Kemet and INIS. So, it fell into the "We've got games like that" when I floated the idea of picking it up. But I'll redouble my efforts to give it a play now that you had mentioned it.
