The Burnt World of Athas

The official Dark Sun website

Psion Powers

A display of Psionic Powers, including power lists for the Psion and Psychic Warrior, has been added to the Unofficial section. Something similar will be added under DS3, once powers start getting selected for inclusion in DS3…

Thri-Kreen, again

YATkT – Yet Another Thri-kreen Tweak. They’re medium now, do less claw damage, have a progressing poison DC and two or three other tweaks.

Bard, Redux

The bard has been updated with a new iteration of abilities. The poison-making rules will be presented as a part of a Craft(Poisonmaking) rule, to be posted at a later date.


As Brax points out, humans aren’t actually known for their tolerance. The flavortext for the humans has been updated to pull away from the rosy picture painted by DS2.

updated cleric

The Cleric has been updated. Of note, the weapon prohibitions have been lifted.

Updated Terrors ...

Version 1.1 of Terrors of the Dead Lands has been uploaded. This release incorporates changes that first appeared in the TotDL addendum, as well as some other alterations.

Behind the Veil...

We’ve posted, here and there in the DS3E section, notes on questions often asked by fans or explanations of decisions taken by the team. These little Q&A texts will appear at the end of the page, in the appropriate section. For example, see the thri-kreen entry or the wizard entry. We’ll add more and more of these as the conversion gets finalized.

and again ...

The kreen are revised. Again. Also lowered the Half-Giant ECL to +1.

In other news, final touches are being put on a revision of Terrors of the Dead Lands. Expect it in a few days.
