IC: Dark Sun D&D4E...
“I live in a world of fire and sand. The crimson sun scorches the life from anything that crawls or flies, and storms of sand scour the foliage from the barren ground. This is a land of blood and dust, where tribes of feral elves sweep out of the salt plains to plunder lonely caravans, mysterious singing winds call travelers to slow suffocation in the Sea of Silt, and selfish kings squander their subjects’ lives building gaudy palaces and garish tombs. This bleak wasteland is Athas, and it is my home.” —The Wanderer’s Journal

Beneath a crimson sun lie wastelands of majestic desolation and cities of cruel splendor, where sandal-clad heroes battle ancient sorcery and terrible monsters. This is Athas, the world of the DARK SUN campaign setting, a dying planet of savagery and desolation. Life hangs by a thread in this barren land, and now it is up to you to write your own story in blood and glory.

I'm considering running a Dark Sun game using 4th Edition D&D. Feeling a bit nostalgic for the older edition. Dark Sun is one of my favorite settings. And they seem to be made for each other.

I would start with some test combats and skill challenges to clear off any rust of using the older system as well as trying some house rules for combat. Though nothing too drastic, I think. Then we'd go from there.

Would there be any interest in this?

In reply to liblarva (msg # 1):

I'm very interested in this and I'm current on 4th Edition rules.

I am always interested in Dark Sun, it is one of the best settings and wildly under used.

Oh man, I haven't played 4E in years but I love Dark Sun. It's one of my favorite settings, right up there with Al-Qadim actually, heh.
