2400 AD&D Dark Sun World Campaign Setting (13.8MB)

Timothy B. Brown and Troy Denning


2 96-page books, 2 24-page flip books, 16-page book, 2 fold-out maps, Complete Psionics Handbook Errata Sheet

Amid the barren wastelands of Athas lies the scattered city states, each in the grip of its own, tyrannical sorceror-king. Protecting their own positions with dark magic, they demand absolute obedience. The restless mobs are placated with bread and circuses - the arenas overflow with spectators seeking release from their harsh lives.

The land outside the cities belongs to no one. Savage elves race across the deserts while insectoid thri-kreen satisfy their taste for blood. Dwarves labor at projects beyond the scope of men, and feral halflings lie in ambush.

Athas is a land of deadly magic and powerful psionics that offers no promise of glory or even of survival. Those who do not have the cunning to face life on Athas will surely perish - leaving nothing but bones bleached white under the blistering rays of the Dark Sun.


Three new PC races! - half-dwarf, half-human; specially bred for combat!

  • Muls
  • Thri-kreen - the savage mantis-warriors of the barrens!
  • Half-giants - bred for tremendous size and strength!

Three New PC classes! - Heroes of the arenas, the ultimate warriors!

  • Gladiators
  • Templars - Wicked priests who serve the sorceror-kings!
  • Defilers - Wizards whose powers drain the life around them!

More Powerful PCs!

All DARK SUN game characters begin at 3rd level!

Ability scores that can go as high as 24!

All PCs have one or more psionic powers!

The new Character Tree allows players to advance many characters at once!

David «Zeb» Cook

Enter the ancient and corrupt city of Tyr, whose tyrannical sorceror-king has ruled for a millennium. As you wander the city, from the wreck of the elven warrens to the sanguine splendor of the arena, you realize that the citizens of Tyr thirst less for water than they do for freedom.

Now, after a century of slave labor, sorceror king Kalak’s great ziggurat nears completion. He has promised the city a grand celebration when the monument is done, complete with the most brutal arena spectacle in Tyr’s long history. Rumors abound as to the nature of the spectacle: some believe it will bring with it the longed-for manumission of countless slaves; others fear the annihilation of Tyr and her people as a sacrifice to Kalak’s hunger for power; and a secret few believe it will be a day of revolution - a day of freedom!

Designed for four to seven players of starting levels, the DM’s Book and Player’s Book inside this pack provide the DARK SUN game DMs with a campaign base in Tyr, and give PCs a brutal introduction to Athas.

Preservers, the keepers of good magic, have sent a mysterious summons. They are ready to embark on a new and dangerous plot to thwart sorceror-kings and bring new life to Athas.

Allen Varney


96-page book

Few safe havens exist on Athas, and fewer still for preservers.

In Tyr, Balic, Draj, Gulg, Nibenay, Raam, and Urik, protection from the dark forces of Athas endures.

Secret recognition signals preserve their identities. For those seeking membership comes a testing: after true intentions are proven, tests are administered and, if failed, leads to a terrible death. If successful, the candidate looks forward to years of perilous work and strife - the results of which may never see the pages of a journal. And no one quits the Alliance without facing requital. presents the DM with all the information required to create Alliance-centered campaigns on Athas - detailed information about the five aims, adventure hooks for each Alliance, recognition signals, and maps of various headquarters.

Anthony Pryor


16-page book, 2 48-page flip books

The palace of the Forest Queen contains treasures unimaginable. To the sons and daughters of Athas’s harsher climes, Gulg and the Crescent Forest seem almost perversely lush, a jumble of green and growing things hording precious water for the benefit of the few. But while basking in the glow of Lalali-Puy’s gratitude, your characters have the richness of the forest at your beck and call.

Of course, the Oba’s sensibilities are easily bruised, and her nature is notoriously unforgiviing. Gulg’s dank dungeons are only a staging area to a deadly ceremony, where the young nobles of the city chase prisoners through the forest to earn their places as lord of their city - the Red Moon Hunt.

Designed for four to six characters of 7th to 10th level, Asticlian Gambit makes them pawns in a dangerous game between the Oba of Gulg, the Shadow King of Nibenay, and mysterious representatives of the Asticles family of Tyr.

Shane Lacy Hensley


96-page book

On a world with no gods, what do priests serve? The priest class on Athas is unique and distinct from the priest classes of any other AD&D world. Athasian priests worship no gods, collect no followers, and carry edged weapons.

Earth, Air, Fire, and Water answers all your questions about this singular class of clerics. Here are the elemental priests who serve the elementals and Athas. They strive to return their barren and battered world to its former state of lush green valleys, forested mountains, and cool waterfalls.

Here are the paraelemental priests who oppose the restoration of Athas, serving the paraelements whose power and might is growing as defiler magic continues to plunge Athas further into decay and ruin.

New priest kits allow PCs to become an Athasian elemental priest of Earth, of Air, of Fire, or of Water - but they can only serve one, for the elements are jealous masters. Each kit contains unique powers, limitations, and proficiencies. Each offers four different ways in which to bring about the regeneration of Athas: as a Wanderer, as a Guardian of a shrine, as a City Cleric, or as a Shaman of a tribe. But beware the paraelemental priests - their success depends upon the failure of the elemental clerics!

2439 The Wanderer’s Chronicle: Windriders of the Jagged Cliffs (6.13MB)

Monte Cook


128-page perfect-bound book, fold-out map

And so I found myself learning about a folk that I had never heard described even in rumors. These halflings are an ancient people - in fact, they gave me a new definition for «ancient.» Their race is older than any other on Athas. They remember times before the Warbringer, before magic, and before the advent of the Way.’

-The Wanderer’s Journal

To the west of Tyr, the proud strongholds of the Jagged Cliffs defy everything that is known about Athas. The history of the halflings who live there is as old as Athas itself. Their origins lie with the rhulisti, who were masters of the world during the Blue Age - and who caused the end of an age when a simple experiment went horribly awry.

Winderiders of the Jagged Cliffs details the lives of the rhul-thaun - the descendants of the rhulisti and the keepers of ancient knowledge who practice the most unusual and arcane art under the crimson sun: the shaping of life itself.

This 128-page accessory for players and Dungeon Masters alike is the first in the «Wanderer’s Chronicle» series that explores new areas of Athas. It features:

  • Details of the Jagged Cliffs region, the rugged land that lies between Tyr and the Kreen Empire.
  • Living tools left from Athas’s dim past, including organic weapons, armor, and flying vehicles.
  • Secrets of the swamp at the base of the Cliffs, and its link to all magic within the world of Athas.
  • Details for creating these unique halfling characters, and rules for making and using living weapons.
  • A complete adventure for existing PCs or newly created rhul-thaun characters.

But the place is real, for I have seen it. I felt the cool spray on my skin, tasted the salt mist on my lips. It is the Last Sea, a remnant of a long-lost age hidden far to the north of Tyr....-From The Wanderer’s Journal

The Last Sea, a huge body of cool water, remains locked in time, a manisfestation of the Green Age that survives to the current Athasian era. Here, people live in safety and peace - as long as they follow the laws set forth by the ancient, immortal Mind Lords who rule over them.

Mind Lords of the Last Sea details the environs and societies living in a hidden valley hundreds of miles north of the Tyr Region. On the shores of the largest known body of water on Athas, the ancient city of Saragar rises like a temple to the Green Age, and the Triune Mind Lords hold sway over all with their powerful psionic abilities.

This accessory is the second in a series of «Wanderer’s Chronicles» that explores the new areas of Athas. It features:

  • A 96-page sourcebook that details the hidden valley, the Last Sea, and all the creatures and intelligent races that inhabit the region - as well as a comprehensive look at the Mind Lords and their great city, Saragar. This sourcebook also includes new monsters, new rules, and new equipment specific to this new region.
  • A 32-page adventure book that provides a ready-to-play adventure set in Saragar and around the Last Sea.
  • A full-color, poster-sized map of the Last Sea region complete with plenty of exciting new locations to explore.

By the Last Sea, the danger is all in your mind...

2445 Defilers and Preservers: The Wizards of Athas (2.80MB)

Nicky Rea


96-page book

Reviled and hunted, hated and feared, they live in secrecy, hiding who and what they are from the rest of the world. They are criminals whose crime calls for swift execution. They are outcasts, with no place to call home. They are wizards, and their crime is the practice of magic....

Beneath the crimson sun, the life of a wizard is hard and dangerous. Blamed for the conditions of the world, feared for the mysterious power they wield, and hated for crimes both real and imagined, Athasian wizards walk in the shadows of civilization and in the barren wastes of the wilderness. For to reveal their nature is to admit their crime - and risk their very lives.

Defilers and Preservers: The Wizards of Athas details the two paths of magic in the DARK SUN campaign and the strange way magic works there. It demonstrates how Athasian wizards power their magic and describes both types of wizards - defilers and preservers.

Defilers leech energy from the land, stealing life away with every spell they cast and leaving only dead ash behind. Preservers also gather energy from the land, but they take only what they need and work to keep the world healthy and alive. These two mortal enemies stand locked in a never-ending battle - with the survival of Athas at stake.

This accessory presents everything needed to create and play prserver and defiler wizards. It features:

  • A discussion on Athasian magic - how it works, who can use it and what it can do.
  • New rules for Athasian wizards.
  • New proficiencies and plenty of wizard character kits.
  • Rules for the advanced beings - dragons and avangions.
  • Information on three new types of defilers and preservers - ceruleans, necromancers, and shadow wizards.
  • Details on the mysterious planes known as the Black and the Gray.

Which path of magic will you choose?
