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.
Another article in the DS4 rehosting series. Rich Baker talks about <a href=http://athas.org/articles/dark-sun-dragonborn>the dragonborn</a> race in Athas, and how they were updated to match up to the dray.
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 peek of one of Dark Sun's most prominent creatures. Later this month the new Monster Manual for Dungeons & Dragons will be released, and with it, the Thri-Kreen.
We are starting a series of reposted blog articles from designers of Dark Sun 4th edition. These articles have been scattered through various reorganizations on Wizards’ site, and are now hard to find, or have vanished completely. We are collecting them here with permission from the authors. We’ll be posting them regularly for the next two months.
The first article is Fun in the Sun, by Rodney Thompson, and was first published almost 5 years ago.
