Preview release of Dregoth Ascending: The Day of Light

Dregoth Ascending was still in development when the Dark Sun line was cancelled in 1997 and has been updated to the revised 3rd Edition D&D rules for this long-awaited release.<p>

This preview release features part one of the Dregoth Ascending trilogy: The Day of Light and is set against the backdrop of Dregoth’s invasion of the city-state of Raam. While Raamite forces battle Dregoth’s dray army, the characters are pitched into the heart of the invasion and slowly begin to discover that something far more dreadful than war is underway beneath the dark Athasian sun. </p><p>

Dregoth Ascending: The Day of Light includes preliminary artwork and maps needed to play the adventure and utilizes the Dark Sun 3e Core Rules, available for free here at athas.org. As this is a preview version of the adventure, feedback is still welcomed, pending a final release with full artwork in the near future. Send comments to jon@athas.org

  • Dragon (Dave Noonan's defiler points/taint)
