Podcast Interview, part 2

Aaaaand, part 2 is up. here. Actually, it’s been up for over a month, and I just failed to notice, and thus announce…

Podcast Interview (part 1)

A few months ago, I was interviewed by our friends over at the Dragonlance Nexus about Dark Sun and 4th edition. The conversation went on a bit long; I recall being on the phone with them for well over an hour, so they’ve split the interview into two parts.

You can find the first part here. I’m told the second part will be posted in about a month.

Arena login fixed

So, I finally managed to get to the bottom of the problems with the arena login. Those of you who have been having problems logging into the arena should be good now. If you’re still having issues, contact me directly and I’ll see if I can fix it.

Post-mortem? It was a problem validating new records added to the arena application by my jury-rigged Single Signon patch.

Arena

While wizards is busy upgrading it’s forum system, I’d like to take this opportunity to point visitors to the arena, our local message board.

Site back up

We just renewed our domain. Apologies for worries and inconveniences to any fans trying to access the site during the renewal process. Everything is fine now.

4e Dark Sun in 2010

Wizards of the Coast has announced that they will publish a 4th edition Dark Sun campaign setting.

To all athas.org current and former members and fans that have supported Dark Sun over the years - Good work! We did it, we kept Dark Sun alive, we grew its fanbase. Finally Dark Sun is resurrected!

Status update

We are currently discussing how to revitalize the Secrets of the Dead Lands project, probably the most ambitious project at athas.org to date.

We will break this down into a series of smaller projects to make it more manageable.

  • An adventure
  • A rules and NPC guide (3.5)
  • A guide to the undead kingdoms
  • A city-state accessory

That´s it for news for now.

technical difficulties

Sorry folks, having some issues with the server at the moment. The main site seems to be okay (now) but the arena is still having some issues.

update: arena is fixed.
