Dark Sun Wiki

Welcome to the Dark Sun Wiki
A wiki guide for the Dark Sun, a Core D&D setting from the Wizards of the Coast, that anyone can edit.

"I live in a world of fire and sand. The crimson sun scorches the life from anything that crawls or flies, and storms and sand scour the foliage from the barren ground. Lightning strikes from the cloudless sky, and peals of thunder roll unexplained across the vast tablelands. Even the wind, dry and searing as a kiln, can kill a man with thirst.

This is a land of blood and dust, where tribes of feral nomads sweep out of the salt plains to plunder lonely caravans, mysterious singing winds call men to slow suffocation in a Sea of Silt, and legions of slaves clash over a few bushels of moldering grain. The dragon despoils entire cities, while selfish kings squander their armies raising gaudy palaces and garish tombs.

This is my home, Athas. It is an arid and bleak place, a wasteland with a handful of austere cities clinging precariously to a few scattered oases. It is a brutal and savaged land, beset by political strife and monstrous abominations, where life is grim and short" -- The Wanderer
