The Burnt World of Athas

The official Dark Sun website

Elemental Evil and Dark Sun

Today Wizards of the Coast released the Elemental Evil Player's Companion. This is more or less a set of character races and spells. What Dark Sun fans will be interested in is the races, Aarakocra, Goliath, and Genasi (there's even a sidebar entitled Genasi on Athas) as well as a slew of elemental themed spells.

So if you're playing Dark Sun with D&D 5th edition, this is a must own....and it's free!

Dark Sun Art Prints

In the early 90's a set of Dark Sun art prints were given to game store owners to promote the unique art of Dark Sun. We got a set of the prints and have scanned them for your pleasure.

Athasian Trinket Table

With the release of 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons the Trinkets table was full of interesting and evocative ideas for a small bauble that characters possess. Many of the items were not suitable for Dark Sun without alternation. In the spirit of the Burnt World, here's a new table, just for Athasians.

[repost] Dark sun out of development

In today's design repost, Rodney Thompson announces that development on Dark Sun 4e has finished. He talks of his love of the original setting, gives us some idea of what we can expect: A return to the pre-Prism Pentad days.

With the new release of Dungeons & Dragons this year much of the Dark Sun community has asked about the future of Athas and while we don't have an answer for you in that regard we do have a peak of one of Dark Sun's most prominent creatures. Later this month the new Monster Manual for Dungeons & Dragons will release, and with it, the Thri-Kreen. Here, Athas.org has an exclusive preview of the Thri-Kreen Monster Manual entry and art.
