Welcome to Athas…
Probably the most important thing to understand about the Dark Sun campaign setting is the unrelenting and unforgiving nature of Athas. It is a world devastated by centuries of war and arcane forces that turned the world into the desert wasteland it is today. The last bastion of civilization, and the focus of most adventures in this world, is the Tyr region; a mostly barren landscape surrounded by mountains, endless dunes, and silt seas housing seven city states ruled over by monstrous sorcerer kings.
The World of Athas
Its not your typical fantasy setting…
Dark Sun is campaign setting full of the usual intrigue and dungeon delving, but the treacherous landscape and unique elements of Athas offer deadly challenges to players.
