With the new release of Dungeons & Dragons this year much of the Dark Sun community has asked about the future of Athas and while we don't have an answer for you in that regard, we do have a peek of one of Dark Sun's most prominent creatures. Later this month the new Monster Manual for Dungeons & Dragons will be released, and with it, the Thri-Kreen.

Q:  They want a Dark Sun game 11 days after the PHB comes out? But what can I use for defiling rules?

A:  I'd let defiling replenish the use of arcane recovery. -M

Speaking of Dark Sun alumni starting up some new things: Richard Baker (DS4, Valley of Dust and Fire, Will and the Way, Dragon's Crown) has a kickstarter up for a new, multi-system campaign setting. Worth a look
