Press ATHASCON : A DARK SUN online convention

June Soler

My fellow Athasians,

In celebration of Dark Sun's 31st anniversary, it is only fitting that we have a party in the desert, away from the prying eyes of templars!

Athasacon is hosted and organized by fans of the Dark Sun campaign setting who come from all over the globe and share a common interest in the game setting. Many of the organizers are active in the Dark Sun communities and host games at physical conventions as well as participate online on Twitch, Reddit, Twitter,, Facebook and other digital spaces discussing and producing Dark Sun gaming content for the community.

So prepare for a weekend of fun under the crimson sun!

To sign up to play in events, the Warhorn & google docs links at the end of this post will take you to our sign-up page. For those of you who utilize Discord to organize and run your sessions, we offer a fully outfitted server and game rooms with boosted service qualities.

In addition to the joinable sessions, Athascon will feature a curated stream accompaniment featuring Dark Sun community streamers, and featured panels with Dar Sun authors!

We are excited to showcase Dark Sun related content for your enjoyment.
