I am in the middle of building a campaign and part of it takes place in the Athas. I am wanting to present the party with an actual threat towards the end of their stay in the hellacious world of Dark Sun by way of a Sorcerer King. In order to do so, I was wondering if a Sorcerer King had already been stated up (either officially or 3rd party?) I may be decent at encounter building, but am terrible when it comes to building a balanced monster.

    \$\begingroup\$ Not an answer, but here's what I'd do. Find a solo controller of appropriate level, reskin it, and use the powers as a guideline to create new ones. 1 at will slide, 1 at will reaction, 1 bloodied reaction, 1 encounter blast + teleport, etc... \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ That is a fantastic answer in of itself. Now that's something I can do, reskinning! \$\endgroup\$ Jun 27, 2011 at 14:02

Searching the compendium for solo controller leaders as examples gave me a bunch of Sorcerer Kings from the Dark Sun creature catalog!

So, in short, Yes, sorcerer-kings have already been given official stats.

Scale the level to your liking and you're good to go!

    \$\begingroup\$ This is perfect. I didn't recall seeing any in the Dark Sun CC, but then again, the last time I perused through it was awhile back. I might end up combining your two separate answers into one (ie. build my own using a Solo Controller template with inspiration from the already built SKs) \$\endgroup\$ Jun 27, 2011 at 14:23

    \$\begingroup\$ On the crossed-out bit: This is what I do regularly in my games -- reskin. I find creatures in the MM or Compendium with the appropriate level and role that I want, then give them wildly different flavor text. Goblins have served as low-level demons, elves as abominations, etc. I also routinely add or swap out powers for my creations, often violating their role to make them fit what I need them to do -- Brutes with pull and reaction powers, for example, normally something associated with Controllers, but it makes them unique -- and more threatening! \$\endgroup\$
