Dust & Blood
“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. 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 elves 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 savage land, beset by political strife and monstrous abominations, where life is grim and short."
- The Wanderer

Dust & Blood Comments
I had a blast at the session last night. The setting is so palpable, and everyone has put in so much thought on their characters, that it just kinda flows. Well played, sir. Well played, indeed.
Hi! Yes, 4E Dark Sun with lots of source material brought in from 2nd edition books. I’ve been excited about running this game for a while. There may be openings for more players if you are anyone you know is interested. Current plan is meeting weekly on Tuesday evenings.
Are you using Dark Sun for your setting?
