There are a few reasons why we decided on Dark Sun over other settings.
We played PnP (Pencil and Paper) Dark Sun for years up through high school and even a few years after that. We really liked how different the campaign setting was vs most other D&D setting.
* Dark Sun has a really large fan base across the internet from Twitter, Facebook groups, Athas.org, and other websites.
* The only computer Dark Sun games I know of are two old 1990’s games, so there isn’t any other Dark Sun games out there for today’s players.
* So we felt that we could create something that
– We knew a lot about
– Had a large fan base already
– Was needed because there aren’t any other Dark Sun video games out there
We also felt that Dark Sun would be so different from all the other NWN game servers/modules out there, which could go a long way at helping to pull new players and creators to the NWN community.
