    New chapter releases

    We have released three more chapters and made updates to the two already published chapters of the Dark Sun 3 Core Rules revision 7. A big thanks goes to Bruno for his prolonged engagement to this project and his team.<p>

    The new releases are Chapter 1 – Races, Chapter 3 – Heroic Characteristics, and 7 – Life on Athas. Among the important changes you will find that thri-kreen and half-giants no longer have racial hit dice, the number of feats has been greatly expanded along with additional regional information, and the brand new Chapter 7 contains much sought after information on the major cities of Athas – including Kurn, Eldaarich and Saragar.
