30 Days of Dark Sun 10: Favorite sorcerer-king?

Post by Big Mac » Fri Oct 14, 2016 6:31 pm

It's the Dark Sun 25th Anniversary and The Burnt World of Athas (aka Athas.org) is celbrating with "30 Days of Dark Sun".

Here is what Athas.org is doing for Day 10: 30 Days of Dark Sun 10: Who is your favorite sorcerer-king?

Here are the ones I could find (let me know if I missed any and I'll add them):
Abalach-re
Andropinis
Borys
Daskinor
Dregoth
Hamanu
Kalak
Lalali-Puy
Nibenay
Oronis
Tectuktitlay

So which one do you like most? How have you used the Sorcerer-Kings in your game? Have you had the PCs take any of them on? Has anyone had a gaming group that managed to kill one or more of the Sorcerer-Kings?

There's another one, the lost king of Kalidnay, Kalid-Ma. Also, Sielba used to be a Sorcerer Queen, IIRC, but she was attacked and killed by a rival.

The last two champions, Sacha and Wyan, remained loyal to Rajaat, and were beheaded by the others, so they didn't become Sorcerer Kings.

My favorite is the Oba of Gulg. Even if Lalali-Puy is as selfish as the other sorcerer-kings, and in the process of becoming into a dragon, at least she treats her subjects well (in Dark Sun standards, of course) and is trying to restore the forest.

Dregoth is the second place. I really like his plan to become into a god. He is the only SK I've used in my DS campaign.

Yes, the Oba is the most ambiguous of them.
