Dark Sun
No law rules the blasted wastes of Athas, except the laws carved by blades or shaped by magic. Civilized realms suffer under the oppressive rule of sorcerer-kings. Will you rise up, with allies to guard your back and your water? Or will the scorched lands under the dying sun claim yet another band of fools?
