About the Game
Dark Sun Redemption will utilize all available source material, though anything not in the basic Player's Handbook or the Dark Sun Campaign Setting should be cleared with the Game Master.
Character creation is a bit different than normal. Concept and play style will be more important than the rules, though all characters should be legal by the character creator (though since it hasn't been updated, the Game Master will take on the responsibility of making sure this is so).
The first step in character creation is to take the character creation quiz located here. That is enough to get started in the world of Dark Sun Redemption; you and the Game Master will work to craft the crunchy bits of the character during the first session.
The second step is to sign up for a user account at Epic Words, and let the game master know so that you can be invited to the campaign. The resources on this site will be used to run the campaign.
