Dark Sun 25th Anniversary
This is it, October 2016. This month marks the 25th anniversary since Dark Sun was released in 1991! Can you believe it's been 25 years? I can't. I was recently invited on the Advantage to Insight podcast to talk about Dark Sun and then was invited back to do a trivia challenge vs Teos Abadia (Alphastream) (out soon) in honor of Dark Sun's 25th anniversary. With that I knew I had to do something in honor of this great setting that has meant so much to me.
I wanted to do something to get more fans involved in the anniversary so I thought it'd be great to celebrate for 30 days of the month by talking about Dark Sun and what our favorite aspects of it are. I encourage each of you reading this to write, blog, tweet your answers to these question each day. Tweet us at @Athasorg, post about them in the Arena, Dark Sun Facebook group, G+ Community, the Piazza forums, Reddit, or wherever you want to talk about Dark Sun.
If you post something on a blog leave a comment here and I'll be sure to link your blog article. Tag your tweets and posts with #30DaysofDarkSun. If you need a refresher on all of the great Dark Sun that's been produced, check out the Dark Sun collector's guide on ENWorld. In homage to the 30 Days of D&D and similar challenges I present to you the 30 Days of Dark Sun.
