We are starting a series of reposted blog articles from designers of Dark Sun 4th edition. These articles have been scattered through various reorganizations on Wizards’ site, and are now hard to find, or have vanished completely. We are collecting them here with permission from the authors. We’ll be posting them regularly for the next two months.
The first article is Fun in the Sun, by Rodney Thompson, and was first published almost 5 years ago.
