The Burnt World of Athas

The official Dark Sun website

Psionics have always been a part of the Dark Sun setting. Within the cultures of Athas psionics are referred to as the Way of the Unseen. They are a utilization of inner power, a blending of the physical and spiritual energies to create fantastic effects.

Here are a few thoughts on what psionic pieces from previous editions should included in 5th edition D&D.

Desert Landmarks

Over at Kobold Press, Miranda Horner dropped a great article today that's right up our alley. She details a collection of desert landmarks that can be easily dropped into your Dark Sun game.

Elemental Evil and Dark Sun

Today Wizards of the Coast released the Elemental Evil Player's Companion. This is more or less a set of character races and spells. What Dark Sun fans will be interested in is the races, Aarakocra, Goliath, and Genasi (there's even a sidebar entitled Genasi on Athas) as well as a slew of elemental themed spells.

So if you're playing Dark Sun with D&D 5th edition, this is a must own....and it's free!

Dark Sun Art Prints

In the early 90's a set of Dark Sun art prints were given to game store owners to promote the unique art of Dark Sun. We got a set of the prints and have scanned them for your pleasure.

Athasian Trinket Table

With the release of 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons the Trinkets table was full of interesting and evocative ideas for a small bauble that characters possess. Many of the items were not suitable for Dark Sun without alternation. In the spirit of the Burnt World, here's a new table, just for Athasians.
