I loved the poison thing. Magic seemed totally off for me. Dragon Kings reintroduced magic for high level bards, but I changed that to psionics, and a limited selection of powers.

For those who have already converted to 5th Edition, this might be useful.  I've finally finished creating my D&D 5E Player Reference Sheets.  They include a variety of commonly referenced rules including combat rules and attack action options, conditions, and other useful information.  I hope that you will find them useful! 
            Ever since D&D 3.0 I have been a huge fan of player reference sheets, a couple of sheets of paper that summarize the rules for players and game masters.   Those few sheets of paper at the table save so much time w...

Nice visuals for your game. Stone Forest reminds me of Forest Ridge. Ha Long Bay (without the water) could be islands in the Silt Sea. The Eye of the Sahara could be so many things.
Shaped and sculpted over millions of years, these stunning landscapes and rock formations hold invaluable clues to Earth's past and future

[O5R] From now until I announce my next kickstarter project in a few days, Revelry in Torth (PDF and softcover) will be on sale over at DriveThruRPG.  You get a lot of bang for your buck in this post-apocalyptic sword & sorcery adventure!  I think you'll really enjoy it.

Hey folks,

I have a 2nd ed box set available for purchase. It's in Very Good condition. It's the original box set. Everything is included, it is complete with nothing missing. $50 shipped. Please let me know if you are interested.

I apologize if selling is not okay in this community. I could not find any rules against it, and I will happily take this post down and move somewhere else (i.e., ebay) if asked! I just wanted to touch base with folks who will give it a good home first.

Does anyone know of any published modules that take place primarily in the Forest Ridge? Preferably set around free year 11 (post death of Borys) Which edition it's in doesn't matter.

One of our gaming groups played through the Kingmaker series, and we liked it even while we found it a bit too abstract as a sub-system. I think building a settlement works perfectly both for the Kingmaker rules and for the storyline of the Tablelands. The adventure in the 2E set does work really well. You could also borrow from various D&D adventures that cover encounters as you travel. Leaving from Tyr will take you through several terrain types (especially Rocky Badlands and Mountains, then Forest Ridge). I discussed the terrain types and made some encounter suggestions in the 4E DDI article found here: (subscription required) http://archive.wizards.com/Dnd/Print.aspx?x=dnd/dueo/athasianwastes 

I like the idea of making the Kingmaker rules a bit more interactive, where decisions feel more like typical campaign material. There are many repercussions that can come from creating a trade village with the Forest Ridge. Halfling cannibals, tribal warfare, forgotten stuff from ancient times, intrusion by other Forest Ridge races, competition from other Tablelands merchant houses that try to sabotage or create competing agreements, defilers that hear of the Forest Ridge and want to wreck it, etc. Lots of fun can spring from this!

Get your Athasian trinkets!
 
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.

Dark Sun Trinket Table. Posted in Character Rules about 15 hours ago. A list of 100 random athasian trinkets. Trinkets. 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.

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.

Here's a conversion packet I created for using Dark Sun with Lamentations of the Flame Princess. The rules to the system are available for free on RPGNow and its sister sites. I obviously like it enough to do a bit of work... ;)

I actually like 2e's psionics, for the reason most people don't: Multiple Ability Dependency, it ensures nobody ever has access to all the good stuff, which is important with a point-based system.

Consider using ability score minimums to 'lock away' races, your players will complain - initially - but it adds quite a bit of awesome when they finally roll well enough to play one of the 'specials'. (Use CON for half-giants, otherwise you'll get nothing but hugely strong half-giants all the time, bleh).

Back to psionics: 2e has a very polished feel to it, it's going to make psionics feel very mature and well rounded in your campaign, while 1e (and really, use CCs rules, not the 1e rules, they're compatible, but CCs are vastly better) will give your campaign a more natural, uncontrolled feel to it.  A third option, which would make for a very strange, pulpish feel is to use Carcosa's psionics rules.  Those are highly random and are going to make people think very carefully about engagements.

A fourth option, would be to use the Traveller psionics rules.  It's a little bit of work to get working, but they're brilliant and give a similar feel to 2es, but have a much smaller range of operability.

Yes he has a document of house rules and options to make the campaign feel more gritty and appropriate for the Dark Sun setting.  He is using material from previous editions as far as story and world elements go. His name is +Gerald Waldrop if you would like to get in touch with him :)

Hello people, good evening to you all. 
I'm about to start a short campaign in Darksun, 2nd Ed., and I want it to be an all gladiator party game. 
I have a couple of ideas, but I would love to see stuff from you too.
Things I have imagined:
- could belong to a gladiatorial / slave house that roams and wanders along the roads visiting cities, towns, etc.
- the party belongs to one or more noble house's stables 
- free gladitors that are short on money, need the rush etc.

I did this. The players were a free gladiator company which was run by a grizzled old thri-keen warrior. I ran it for a sinlge season of games in Nibenay. We had adventures in and out of the arena. It works great if you have drop ins.
