There is an upscale bar for the Socially Elite who can afford it with guards to keep the trash out. Its called the Atrium.
The sound of a thunderous explosion tears through the air and blasts waves of pressure ripple through the ground.

Looking northward, the rugged, stubble-bearded templar asks you, in sirihish:
     "Well... I think it worked...?"

I play a lot of pretty pale people. That said, I tend to RP myself as being completely wrapped up and wanting to get out of the sun ASAP when I do. At least in the desert. But yeah, I have a ton of pretty guilt. I'm better about it when I play physical classes, but give me a merchant or a Viv and they're going to be more fabulous than you.

>Not playing for style points.
Ah hell nah we going to look like shit but be styling as fuck.
Merchant is the swag class 2018, and thief if you aren't a black clothes wearing panzy, you better wear more bling than you have physical item slots.

Specially if you are a Viv. Clean your self every hour, on the hour, radiate water, make your own water magic deodorant, the choice is yours.

Play what you wanna play, within the documents. Fuck overly critical players on any sort of high horse when it comes to playing. Do what pleases you; being pretty is the smallest little thing that you shouldn't have guilt or second guesses about it all. Now, if you're playing a happy go lucky hippy in the Rinth, you might run it by staff first. But a pretty girl or boy? Just. Ugh. Ignore the haters.

What boog said. Just like others criticizing your rp, playstyle or role vaguely on gdb, just ignore them and play on.


Play within the documents makes everything fine.

Play believably. I'm fine with pretty. But flawless gorgeous perfectly groomed lustrous-haired manicured "porn-star-described" characters in the Byn, the Arm, as a hunter in a GMH, or a rinthi, just - aren't believable. I just wish people who write those kinds of descriptions, whose characters get into situations where those descriptions make no sense, would use TDESC to indicate a change.

To be fair, almost all the females in the Dark Sun artwork are pretty and even pale -- what's up with that sort of weird ash-coloured skin a lot of them seem to have?  (Plug in "Dark Sun" into google images.)



Noticed this.  Note the stars.  Didn't someone mention that in the original Dark Sun there are no stars due to (((zoned out at the nerd metaphysics))) sphere?

Dear god, I Wanna nerd out but I don't own the book anymore and can't find a reference on hand.

I Want to say, at lest during the Prism Pentad series there was stars, whether that fall in line with the latest editions of Dark Sun I dunno.  I distinctly remember that picture is from A book called The Amber Enchantress and vaguely remember stars being mentioned during some points in the third act.

Although I can't think of a specific passage or line, so I could be mistaken.

Ender and I found a bunch of legit Darksun stuff tucked away in a box a while ago, but it got shelved and we've been too distracted to go through it.

Now I really want to try and remedy that this weekend.

I found my original Dark Sun campaign setting box set a few weeks ago in the attic.  It totally doesn't date me.

Dark Sun original box is all that was ever printed of the Dark Sun franchise. Maybe some of the first few splatbooks. Everything else before 4th Ed. doesn't exist. There are no biowizard halflings. That is a lie. They don't exist.

...halflings were in the prism pentad.

I enjoyed those books.  Rikus the Mul, Sadira the Sorcereress...it was actually out of that book, the mindbender retainer to the templar that visits the gladiator cages to read Rikus's mind, that made me try to app something similar only to be told that templars would kill mindbenders, not retain them.  Ah well.

Descriptions of the Way through Agis were pretty cool though.

The best part of the Dark Sun stuff was the Thri Kreen empire.
