Would people prefer the Athas.org Dark Sun campaign setting for 3.5 or the Dragon Magazine/Dungeon Magazine version. The Athas.org is more complete but it is user created not "official" like the magazine version would be. Is there a way I could to do both I wonder? Kind of like "Here is the setting choose Athas.org or Dragon Mag version" check boxes.

I have no problem keying in the info for this setting. I made need help with a few things so look for my questions.

I vote Athas org ruleset. However I haven't actually perused the dragon mag rules.

Look at the XXX.1st file located in the D20 data folder it'll give you an idea! I can't recall the actual name ATM but it's the file with the 1st extension!

I use dreamweaver but any text editor will work, I usually copy and paste the existing last line insert my own data then tag my custom stuff to the new source in HL.

Most of my changes are inside the HL Editor. When I do need to work in the raw XML I actually prefer TextPad actually. I have used for many years on many different projects from HTML, XML, Java, javascript, and the scripting language of Never Winter Nights.

I would at least advice picking up one that does the coloring of the different element types and stuff. That really helps make it easier to read.

I was trying to use Microsoft XML Notepad 2007 and Hero Lab does not like the way it saves the files. I thought I was doing something wrong but it is just a compatibly issue with the software.
