Here is a Spell Conversion for Dark Sun (https://onedrive.live.com/view.aspx?cid=20a4cc98ca3f96ae&page=view&resid=20A4CC98CA3F96AE!188&parId=20A4CC98CA3F96AE!132&app=Word), from the 3.5 DS3 guidebook. Its still a WIP (there are no spells from Terrors of the Deadlands and there are a few missing spells from the DS3, but Ill add them later.

Basically, I converted them due to Dark Sun setting having no gods, and the clerics worshipping the elements and having domains based on their elements. So in order to convert the domains to 5th, I really had to convert the spells.

I used the DMG for balance (which does not give good guidelines on length of spell, power, saving throws and others) and this thread here on Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/dndnext/comments/2rzjwx/spell_conversion_projects_for_5e/).

I think I like Boneclaw's Cut the most. It fits fairly well with a Dragonborn Necromancer concept I was working on. :smallsmile:

Yeah, I like that spell too. You can use these spells in a non-DS game if you want - remember to change the material costs from Ceramic Pieces, The Black to Plane of Shadow, and The Gray to Hades

Ill be adding more to it, including some really nasty ones from Terrors of the Deadlands.
