This place resonates with echoes of long forgotten wars. While the names of those forgotten may never be uttered again, their deeds live on in glimpses of psychic memories.
The Tale of Tectuktitlay: Wemic Annihilator
The Fall of the Wemics The destruction of the Pride of Wemicdom by Tectuktitlay, Wemic Annihilator, was one of the faster and highly environmentally destructive campaigns in the history of the Champions.
The Southern Coast of the Estuary of the Forked Tongue
Death among the rocky badlands, budding mountains, and numerous silt basins of the southern coast of the Estuary of the Forked tongue can come quick, but a life can be made here or at least a living. On the Grey Coast, desert tribes trade with one another and a few outposts that eek out an existence, ruins of ancient times are revealed in the silt and beckon would be treasure hunters, traders always need new caravan guards, slavers always need new stock, and tales of the Fabled City of Plenty call to the curious.

Alternate History: The Grey, Banishment of the Gods
An alternate history with explanations of the lack of gods on Athas and the creation of the Dead Lands
Another ancient unofficial article found in the web archives:
According to the Draji religion, a faith propagated by centuries of state sponsorship, King Tectuktitlay is the supreme temporal and spiritual authority of the cosmos, a kind of perfect incarnation of the spiritual forces of Athas. The Draji are taught that their King is the creator of all life and is responsible for investing the world with order and purpose. Unlike their neighbours in Raam, the people of Draj largely believe what the Moon Priests have taught them and they look upon Athas as world with their own King as its necessary centre. In Draj, as in Gulg, it is the state religion which dominates Draji identity and outlook, making it one of the more stable cities of the region, and certainly the most arrogant.
Dark Sun Net-Projects
The Net Projects were a series of projects created by members of the Dark Sun mailing list during the late '90s to flesh out the Dark Sun setting.
An ancient unofficial article from the depths of the internet:
The Dray, the draconic race who dwell far beneath the scorched surface of Athas, owe their fearsome form to a transformation wrought ages ago upon the band of humans who then served under Dregoth. However it was not only the bodies of his people that the Dread Lord saw fit to alter to his liking, but also their hearts and minds. This was achieved long before the physical transformation, when he fashioned for them a new religion, one which places himself at the centre of a cosmic drama in which they would play a vital part.

Netproject: Armor of Athas
In the late 90's a series of unofficial Dark Sun Netprojects were created on the Dark Sun mailing list. This list of Athasian Armor is one such project. The multitude of second edition stats for armor allowed a variance of each type of armor made from different Athasian creatures, creating a rich, detailed setting.
Net Project: Equipment of Athas
In the '90s a series of Net Projects were coordinated on the Dark Sun Mailing List. This project was about Dark Sun equipment.
