Dawn of the Emperors: Thyatis and Alphatia is an accessory for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game.
Dawn of the Emperors is a campaign setting in the world of the GAZ series, and describes the two warring empires of Thyatis and Alphatia.
The 32-page "Player's Guide to Thyatis" describes an expanding, eclectic empire reminiscent of the Roman that reserves its highest regard for warriors; this book includes character creation rules for Thyatian player characters.
The 32-page "Player's Guide to Alphatia" describes a chaotic, bizarre, and ancient empire where magic-users reign over all non-magical folk; this book includes rules for Alphatian character creation, and for making magic items.
The 128-page "The Dungeon Master's Sourcebook" includes a history and atlas for each of the two featured empires, plus details of disputed territories, campaign and adventure scenario suggestions, and rules for conversion to AD&D.

In the 1991 book Heroic Worlds: A History and Guide to Role-Playing Games, Lawrence Schick commented, "On the whole, it's a satisfying climax to the GAZ series."
