Day 2 of 30 Days of Dark Sun

Do you like the concept of Preserving or Defiling better?

I have to go with Defiling.  Really, that's how Dark Sun got to be a desert.  Once again, I had very little true knowledge of the pulp classics like Conan or Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser.  However, something about the drawback to magic use made sense to me.  I instinctively knew magic use was dangerous and now I had a mechanic for it.  It also gave a dichotomy to magic users, who I always felt were too carbon-copy.  Would I have ever played one?  I don't know; I never was big on magic users in general.  It would have been interesting; unfortunately, I was the DD:  Designated Dungeonmaster.  :)
