  1. Just wanted to say thanks for creating this list--SUPER useful for this DM planning his first forays into the Athas!

  2. They should all be working now. If you find anything not working, please let me know.

  3. WOW! This is exactly the type of list I wanted to make. Greatly appreciate the sourcing too! and Links! just amazing!
    The one thing I am still curious.. is any mention in DS sources that states regular DND creatures that exist on Athas. For example: Monstrous Compendium on the Dark Sun Encounter Tables (at front) that have some of the following creatures like: slave worker, genie, dao; bat (you have linked a Bat to be non-ds.. but Huge Bat is listed here), huge; lots of them. And even some of the creatures that are in the computer games as well.

    1. The list specifies the source that states the monster is present on Athas.
      When I state that a creature is "non-Dark Sun," I mean it was not designed as a Dark Sun monster. Sorry for the confusion. All of my home-brewed monsters, or official monsters I thought fit well with Dark Sun, are on the bottom.

  4. Rajaat,

    I have an excel file I need to get to you that I have been working on for the last several years. At one point I used your list to verify some of the monster entries in it. I essentially combed through all DS products to produce it. Its the file I use that I got all the missing ones from in our previous exchange on athas dot org. I would think you can make use of it.
