If you want to know how to play and/or gm Dark Sun pick the May issues of Dungeon and Dragon Magazine. Both issues wil be chock full of Athasian roleplaying goodness from cover to cover.

I am looking forward to seeing what May will bring.
I plan on combining www.athas.org, the May issues, & anything else I come accross. I'll pick and choose what I like best
Show me the way to go home,
I'm tired and I want to go to bed.
I had a little drink about an hour ago,
And it's gone right to my head.
Wherever I may roam,
On land or sea or foam.
You will always hear me singing this song:
Show me the way to go home
Song: Show me the way to go home

That won't be necessary - IMC the typical thri-kreen NPC has 4 levels of ranger. They live in a harsh environment, so it's not unusual they would gain levels. They end up with 6 HD (the right number) but are also flexible, just in case you wanted to give them cleric or psion levels instead.Thri-kreen is another race that is problematic to convert, because quite frankly they were overpowered in 2e. Defining traits are: alien mindset, non-humanoid, multi-armed, thick chitin exoskeleton, less need of water. They will either need to be reduced in power, or be given a level adjustment. One solution might be racial levels, as in Arcana Unearthed. That would also explain the differences between a starting PC thri-kreen and a “monster” thri-kreen – the “monster” is simply one that only has racial levels. Worth thinking about.
When it comes to Metacreativity, I just have to find a "niche" for it. IMC it's most common among J'ez tohr-kreen, and occasionally among poor psions in the city, but otherwise isn't that common. Elves are known to have an affinity for it (no bonuses, just elven shapers are more common than, say, dwarven shapers).
If your D20 Modern PCs don't fear guns, use a bigger battlefield! Smaller battlefields are melee friendly. Cool battlefields in the Forest and Woodlands section of http://www.angelfire.com/rpg2/dungeonsunlimited/
You cannot spend more power points on a psionic power than your manifester level. The metacap is there for balance reasons.
