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.
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.
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.
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!

WotC has released a preview of the 4e Psion, which will appear in next year’s PHB3. You can find it here: http://wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/drfe/20090707
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
ThatÂ´s it for news for now.
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.
Thanks to everyone for submitting feedback through the feedback forms on the site. Do know that we read all your comments, even if we do not have the resources to respond by e-mail. I notice several comments are posted in the form of a question. If there is something you wish to discuss in public, I suggest posting in the Arena.
WeÂ´ve fixed the login issue affecting the Arena which some of you have experienced lately. Apologies for the inconveniences.
