Elves of Athas is a 96-page sourcebook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition released in [missing data].

Official synopsis[]

They run across the burning plains where others fear to walk. They live for the moment, these savages of a dying world. The elves of Athas are wild, dangerous, and unlike any other elves. Forget the frail forest dwellers of other campaign worlds. Athas's elves stand tall and lean, with long limbs and fearsome faces. They are thieves and raiders, swift warriors and terrible foes. 

Elves of Athas explores the passions that drive them, the abilities that make them different from the other races, and the out look that lets them survive beneath the ccrimson sun. This accessory includes savage encounters with the better known tribes and an updated map of the Tablelands region. For players, there are new rules for character creation and new Athasian elf kits-offered to Dark Sun game characters for the first time.

The elves of Athas are forged in the endless desert-burned dark by the sun, toughened by the swirling sands, and given strength and swiftness by the constant wind. Come run with them-if you dare!
