Legends in the Sand: The Sword of Dregoth
This is the Central Wiki page for the campaign.
The Way of the Land
“I live in a world of fire and sand. The crimson sun scorches the life from anything that crawls or flies, and storms of sand scour the foliage from the barren ground. This is a land of blood and dust, where tribes of feral elves sweep out of the salt plains to plunder lonely caravans, mysterious singing winds call travelers to slow suffocation in the Sea of Silt, and selfish kings squander their subjects’ lives building gaudy palaces and garish tombs. This bleak wasteland is Athas, and it is my home.” —The Wanderer’s Journal
A Desert Primer
“The Tablelands are arid, hot, and barren. Even on windless days, the sky is filled with a yellow green haze of floating silt. The crimson sun blazes with merciless intensity, and the breezefrels like the hot breath of the Dragon itself” —The Wanderer’s Journal
Athas is a desert world, but that doesn’t mean the planet is uniformly covered with sand or barren wastes. Deserts come in many forms. Some are habitable, some are brutal killing grounds, and some are wastelands that seem empty but are full of hidden life. Knowing the types of deserts one might encounter while traveling across Athas is a vital survival skill one that might mean the difference between a successful journey and a hard death in the wilds.
