D&D General Athas.org completes 2E Dark Sun adventure

From comicbook.com:
A 25-year-old abandoned Dungeon & Dragons adventure has been completed and released by a group of dedicated fans. The Emissary takes place on Athas, the Dark Sun Campaign Setting's world, which celebrated its 30th-anniversary last year. The Emissary is one of several projects that Dark Sun co-creator Tim Brown worked on in the 1990s left unfinished when TSR pulled the plug on the Dark Sun setting. Wizards of the Coast then acquired TSR and allowed the fan community at The Burnt World of Athas to produce Dark Sun materials for Dungeons & Dragon's 3rd edition and 3.5 rulesets. It is that same fan community that completed The Emissary for release.

Apparently they've previously completed other incomplete 2E-era products, such as Secrets of the Dead Lands. Only catch is, they're all updated to 3.5 - handy if you play Dark Sun under those rules, not so much if you're still playing under 2E.

WotC’s agreement with the official fansite was that the fansite update (and add to if necessary) the unfinished, unreleased products to 3.5. And must be released for free.

There was no agreement to permit Athas.org to release the product using 2e rules, unfortunately.
