Wizards of the Coast has released an Unearthed Arcana article called the Awakened Mystic. It appears to be a partial class called the Mystic with a few features from the class. The class seems to have some interesting mechanics and takes on psionics. What do you think of its use of concentration?

We've posted an article about the possibilities of Psionics in 5e Dark Sun. Let us know what your dreams are for psionics in 5e on our new comment section.

With the release of 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons the Trinkets table was full of interesting and evocative ideas for a small bauble that characters possess. Many of the items were not suitable for Dark Sun without alternation. In the spirit of the Burnt World, here's a new table, just for Athasians.

Feh.  I'm old and creaky.  All core setting books are boxed sets.  Now, get off my lawn.

The original Dark Sun boxed set is now available as a PDF on D&D Classics.  For those of you who came in with 4th edition, I absolutely recommend checking this out to get an idea of the original flavor and tone of the setting.  The Wanderer's Journal is well worth it, even if you have no interest in the 2nd edition rules

Wizards of the Coast has been asking the public for feedback on various aspects of the latest version of Dungeons & Dragons. In their latest survey they're asking about settings that people would like to see updated to 5th editions as well as what classes and races they'd like to see.

Dark Sun fans, this is a great opportunity for us to make our voice heard. Make sure to select Dark Sun in the settings section. For the classes section there are no psionic classes. For the races, be sure to select Half-Giant and Thri-Kreen. There is a box for open text you can include your own comments. That'd be a great place to add the psionic classes (Psion, PsyBlade, Psychic Warrior, Ardent) and perhaps the Mul race.

Our last survey asked you to name which spells were proving problematic in your campaigns. We collected the responses as write-in text, rather than a checklist, so it will take some time to organize the results. We hope to have those results for you next month.

Great stuff. On a similar note, is there a random "distinguishing features" table for Dark Sun floating around anywhere? (Pointed ears, webbed fingers, minor mutations, etc.) I feel like I saw one somewhere, and now I'm coming up blank.

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.

Here, Athas.org has an exclusive preview of the Thri-Kreen Monster Manual entry and art.

http://athas.org/articles/5e-Thri-Kreen
Monster Manual. The above quote from the new Monster Manual (Due out September 30th) described Thri-Kreen as they may appear in most standard D&D worlds. As we all know Dark Sun is far from standard. From the very inception of Dark Sun in the Original Dark Sun boxed set Thri-Kreen were heavily ...

This is the first of a series of reposted blog articles from designers of Dark Sun 4th edition. These articles have been scattered through various reorganizations on Wizards' site, and are now hard to find, or have vanished completely. We are collecting them here with permission from the authors.
