Irvine – Johns-cycling-diary.co.uk The post apocalyptic Dungeons Dragons setting's first ever comic Beneath a crimson sun lie wastelands ofSplendor where life hangs by a thread Welcome to Athas When an imprisoned gladiator named Grudvik escapes the city of Tyr a part time slave hun I got an eGalley of this book through NetGalleydotcom This book was an interesting concept Basically it starts with a graphic novel set in the Dark Sun world then after the graphic novel there is infomation monster stats maps on running the story as a campaign for a group of Dungeon and Dragons DnD charactersThe story features an ex gladiator and a bard who meet in the desert They are trying to get into a city but run into uite a bit of trouble along the way The ARC I got only included the first 40 pages or first part of the graphic novel story Following that was stat info on the monsters the characters ran into during the graphic novel story Also included was information on the campaign setting maps scenarios ect All of the things you would need to run your own group of DnD characters through this graphic novel storyFirst let's discuss the uality of the graphic novel The illustration is so so; very cartoony with sound bubbles blam whack it wasn't bad but it wasn't exceptional either The story was much interesting; this is obviously set on an interesting desert world where there are a lot of conflicting interests slavery exists as does gladiator fighting as well as a mysterious symbols and tombs The dialogue between characters was well done and engaging Some of the battle scenes were a bit confusing it was hard to figure out exactly what was going on with the characters So overall the graphic novel portion was okay not exceptional but generally well doneThe second portion was all of the campaign setting info This info seemed very complete All the enemy creatures actions and stats are there Scenarios are played out and possible paths addressed There are maps of the regions and ships etc The group of DnD characters that would play this campaign follows in a general story similar but not identicle to the one played out in the graphic novelThis is a neat idea and the campaign provided is a nice campaign for shortish DnD excursion Nice for a DnD group that wants a smaller campaign to run through The campaign does seem to follow the graphic novel story pretty closely though As a DnD player I would think this would take a bit of fun out of the campaign If you read through the graphic novel then the element of surprise during the campaign is eliminated; which is part of the funI did not get a chance to play through this campaign with my DnD group Since all of us have small kids we only get 5 6 hours per month of play time and are dedicted to a many years long campaign right now So I probably won't get a chance to play through it with them in the near future From my read through the campaign looks pretty well set up although I will be curious to read reviews from people who actually give it a full play throughOverall this is a nifty idea The graphic novel portion is okay; the illustration is not the best but it does provide an engaging story and a good introduction to the world The campaign information that follows the graphic novel seems complete and is a cool idea It should provide a nice short contained campaign for those who like that; it could also be tied in with a larger DnD campaign The only downside I can see is that if you read the graphic novel first the element of surprise is gone from the campaign So if you want a small contained campaign in an interesting setting and enjoy fantasy graphic novels I would check this out

KINDLE Þ Dungeons Dragons Dark Sun Vol 1 Ianto's Tomb Ü Alexander C. Irvine

Ter and full time dune trader is hired to bring back the fugitive But after crossing swords the pair must join forces to survive the harsh deser I have to admit that I was not expecting much from this In fact i thought it was going to be pretty bad I was wrong It was well written and the art was fantastic This was an all around decent book I think of the strengths was that it was formatted as a mini series and not an ongoing While it is certainly open for a seuel the necessity of ending the story enabled the writer to craft a tighter narrative and focus on some nice character development and progression The best part is that it works even if the reader is not a fan or player of Dungeons Dragons I've only played Dark Sun a couple times but it was a nice campaign setting and in many ways this is a nice tribute; but even if you do not have a working knowledge of the world of Athas this is still a tight enjoyable read
