    About the adventure

    "I've been living my dream of playing Dark Sun with Robert for well over a year. It is a blast. He's a great, very experienced DM and is an ACE at Fantasy Grounds. Four Thri-Kreen thumbs up. Wait, do Thri-Kreen actually have thumbs... 🤔" - Rick Perry (Has played in 30+ sessions of Dark Sun) When we begin, your character has been asked to aid a secretive faction of the Veiled Alliance in the Free City of Tyr against an unknown assailant.This epic campaign takes characters across the breadth of the Tablelands and beyond in an attempt to stop dark forces from destroying Athas as we know it.
