Do you want to see Dark Sun 5e?

Post by Raddu » Tue Jun 30, 2015 8:04 pm

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.

Voted. I would definitely love to see Dark Sun make a return for 5E.

Did WotC ever put up the results of this survey? How did Dark Sun do (vs other campaign settings)?

I really don't. I've always hated gritty postapocalypses, and the gorgeous art in the 5E books really makes it seem like Dark Sun would be a tone mismatch.

(What I do want to see is Planescape 5.0.)

I think that will be highly unlikely. Though I am chomping at the bit for a 5E Manual of the Planes right now, which I am pretty sure we will get.

Dark Sun 5e? Yes please!

How much material do we have that can be useful for Dark Sun in the 5th edition already? Do we have Psionics? Tri-Kreen? Half-Giants? Or does most of it have to be converted from the ground? Do we go the route of having Goliaths=Half-Giants or would they work better as two separate races?
