That's a fairly generic-sounding description for a Dark Sun story. I'm wondering how easy it would be to raid this plotline and use it in a tabletop game.Amazon wrote:Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Sun - Ianto's Tomb (Dungeons & Dragons (Idw Quality Paper))
by Alexander Irvine (author) and Peter Bergting (artist)
The post-apocalyptic Dungeons & Dragons setting's first-ever comic! Beneath a crimson sun lie wastelands of majestic desolation and cities of cruel splendor, where life hangs by a thread. Welcome to Athas! When an imprisoned gladiator named Grudvik escapes the city of Tyr, a part-time slave hunter and full-time dune trader is hired to bring back the fugitive. But after crossing swords, the pair must join forces to survive the harsh desert.
Is there anything special in this story, that ties it to the 4th Edition Dark Sun changes? Or would this work in the 2e Dark Sun timeline?
The name Ianto's Tomb, makes this sound like the story visits the tomb of Ianto. Is this an underground "dungeon"? If so, could the comic be used to infer maps of this tomb?
Does this comic introduce any new elements to Dark Sun?
Does the comic bring back any classic elements from 2e stories or gamebooks?
