Athas Con by June Soler

In celebration of Dark Sun’s 31st anniversary, it is only fitting that we have a party in the desert, away from the prying eyes of templars! Lets have a Dark Sun themed virtual convention! Stay tuned for more information as we marshal our allies in the alleys of the city-states and beyond…

> KEEP HOPE ALIVE!

Friends here is all the information to get ready for Athascon. We encourage you to participate as players and GMs to bring Dark Sun to new, returning or experienced gamers of all types throughout the weekend. Our goal is to bring a host of Dark Sun adventures in every edition to run throughout the weekend. In addition, we hope to feature Dark Sun programming with both official designers and homebrew creators on their various Dark Sun projects.

Individuals who sign-up and run at least 4 hours of Dark Sun gaming events at Athascon will receive Dark Sun themed digital convention swag. * 3D Printable STL files of Dark Sun themed creatures * A Set of 4 Dark Sun themed creature tokens for use in VTTs created by Devin Night

Faces of the Dead Lands Released!

Faces Of The Dead Lands by Jane Bradley
The final primary supplement for Secrets of the Dead Lands, Faces of the Dead Lands, has been released! It is the largest and most extensive book of NPCs ever produced by Athas.org.

Faces of the Dead Lands is far more than just a collection of NPCs and their stats. Within these pages you will find the first-hand accounts of this devastated land and the lush lands that came before it, as experienced through the eyes of the ancient undead who were there. The stories within each NPC description not only paint clear pictures of the motivations and experiences of these characters, but they also build upon existing canon for both the Dead Lands and the other ancient stories from the rest of Athas, granting a much clearer picture of what it was really like to experience the early days of the Cleansing Wars and the terrible Obsidian Tide.
