So, whats the chances/probability/likleness/whatever that a thri-kreen character would be allowed in a setting outside of darksun? I would love to play a thri-kreen in regular dnd
Depends on the GM. Many settings, homebrew included, don't have them (for example, I haven't found a place for them yet.) Others do. However, D&D related topics, oddly enough, are considered off-topic in the OTT.

Thri-Kreen should be allowable in any campaign id think, they werent a Dark Sun exclusive, they were around before Dark Sun came out. And I now for a fact that there were lots of em in Forgotten Realms around the Shaar and the northern Moonsea area, so yeah I wouldnt see any problem playing Thri-Kreen outside of Dark Sun.

ANd am i seriously the only one who enjoys talking about D&D in the tavern?

Rules Schmules! 
I survived Section 4 and all I got was this lousy sig Off-topic and going downhill from there

*Two points about this gag. Firstly, every writer of anything makes typos and I’m no different. It’s “there but for the grace of God go I” rather than schadenfreude here. The second is something called Muphry’s Law (no, it is Muphry’s, not Murphy’s) which states that any piece correcting or laughing at a typo, spelling or grammatical mistake will contain at least one worse than the original being complained of.

The OTT is not the place for D&D discussions.

Am I the only one sick of seeing D&D discussion threads in the OTT?

I mean, if we have to abide by the rules, so does everybody else.

Ask your GM.

Me?  I'd probably allow it, since I tend to make my game world up as I go (which means it's easy to include anything that strikes my fancy) but someone that has a mountain of canon (head or written down) for their world might chafe at the non-standard request.

So long story short... ask your GM if it's allowed.  Answers from any other are speculation.

Don't listen to the rest of them. Now tell us, in as much detail as possible, about the world your game takes place in, your DM and his other hobbies, and your character concept and how it would fit into the game and make your DM cry.

that's the thing though. Im just that dang new at it all, i havent actually been able to find a group to play yet. I'm just fascinated by the thri-kreen and was wondering about the likeliness of them being included in a setting outside of dark sun. Probabley a waste of board space but i really am kinda clueless about what is allowed and what is forbidden by most
IMHO, some of the more fun games and DMs will let you play whatever you want.  Someone plays a Thri-keen on and off in my game, and it is a pretty cool wall-hanging/jump-charger/eater of questionable organic substances character.

...and if you want to make your DM cry:

  Play 3.5 or spill beer on his/her computer/notes/minis/dining table/floor/shirt etc.Smile
