Ok, I really just wanted to get your guys attention with that title.
This post is to warn, and inform you about what really happens in the world of Athas. You die. It’s not like most other game settings were were hero’s or vilan’s questing. This game setting will be a rough ride, and we might die at some point.
- “This rule reflects the fact that daily life on Athas is much harsher than it is in other AD&D realms, forcing characters to mature more quickly if they are to survive.” – AD&D 2e Dark Sun Rules Book
- “Dark Sun campaigns are set in a violent world. Powerful magics and psionics, desperate hordes of raiders, and even the unforgiving desert wastes all conspire against player characters – death is not at all uncommon on Athas, nor is it uncommon for player characters in Dark Sun campaigns.” – AD&D 2e Dark Sun Rules Book
- “Dark Sun is a particularly dangerous place; one where character death is frequent and, at times, gruesome. High PC mortality rates find some relief in the character tree … Still, as deadly a world as Athas is, player characters, especially those at low levels, may die too frequently.” – AD&D 2e Dark Sun Rules Book
Don’t be dicouraged though. shitz gOing to B siick dawg!
