apparently I'm using the intro as a checklist, hadn't even realized it.
"I live in a world offire and sand. The crimson sun scorches the life from anything that crawls or flies, and storms of sand scour the foliage (tracks) 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 to travelers to slow suffocation in the Sea of Silt, and selfish god-kings squander their subjects lives building gaudy palaces and garish temples. This bleak wasteland is Athas and it is my home "
Consider the things I haven't included yet to be foreshadowed.
I would also add weird civilized races, gladiators, psionics, nobles, and slaves but the party has those covered.
