About the adventure

A classic Dark Sun campaign set in Tyr while the Sorcerer-King Kalak rules. A thousand years of stagnation has led to this moment. The Brown Age turns to the Age of Heroes due to the actions of a group of uncommon Athasians. Templars, Defilers, Traders and common folks battle for their lives and control of Tyr. A city-centered campaign featuring classic Dark Sun tropes. I want to make sure we're sticking with this theme for all characters. That generally means any race/class combination as seen in the published setting or class conversions that match the theme. While stuff outside of that, could be cool in Dark Sun, it's just not for this campaign as we try to focus on the old school feel for this run.
