dark sun, dark times
Athas is one of the commonly used names for the world. Athas is an arid world consisting mainly of deserts and scrub land. The majority of Athas’ population lives in a part of the world known as the Tyr region, little is know about the lands beyond this region. Athas was not always like it is today. Long ago Athas was a green and verdant land, however some great event or series of events destroyed most of the life on Athas as well as the worlds ability to sustain life. This long forgotten era of life and peace is known as the green age. The period of strife and destruction which transformed Athas into its current form is called the red age. The current time period is called the desert age.
