The Burnt World of Athas - What Your Father Told You: Sun Priest

Gabriel Cormier

- The world is our playground. It exists for the Sun to shine its beautiful rays upon its surface. The world is a desert, made of mostly sand that absorbs and reflects the Sun's wonderful heat. People live in cities, trying to escape us, but the Sun shines down upon their heads wherever they go. Some people try to live in small villages, but the Sun's glorious rays still find them. There are some mountains up north, places where sun-blocking trees grows. As if they could resist the Sun's fury! The Sun shines all-powerful upon all of Athas!
