It’s Wednesday again, and today’s Review of the Dark Sun Adventure, Marauders of the Dune Sea, is posted over at EN World. In addition to this review, I plan to do a Review of the Dark Sun adventure released in Dungeon Magazine, The Vault of Darom Madar, which was written by “Blackdirge”, and see how it stacks up against the “official” Dark Sun Module.
I wish I could say I like Marauders of the Dune Sea, but there were simply too many things going wrong in that adventure for it to be likable… and I’m afraid you will have to head to EN World to read the details and my grade card at the link below:
Review of Marauders of the Dune Sea by Wizards of the Coast
I have to say that I am pretty surprised that there is not more Dark Sun adventure content on the WotC Release Calendar following up after such a major product. I would certainly hope that we will at least see more adventures appearing in Dungeon Magazine, otherwise it looks like Dark Sun will be left out in the cold for a while in favor of D&D Essentials.
So what are other Dark Sun Campaigns doing right now for adventure material?
Are Dungeon Masters going back to older products and updating them to 4E Dark Sun, or forging ahead and writing your own new campaign content? I would be interested in hearing feedback and suggestions from other Dark Sun DMs, and as always, your comments are most welcome!
So until next blog… I wish you happy gaming!
