WHAT IS THE D&D ADVENTURERS LEAGUE?
The D&D Adventurers League is an ongoing official campaign for Dungeons & Dragons. It uses the fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons rules, and features the Forgotten Realms setting. You can play D&D Adventurers League games literally anywhere. Players use the fifth edition rules to create a character and bring that character to games anywhere D&D Adventurers League play is happening.
If you’re a Dungeon Master or would like to try your hand at being the Dungeon Master, the D&D Adventurers League is a great way to run D&D games without having to spend a lot of time creating your own campaign world or adventures.
As a Dungeon Master, you have the opportunity to weave a fantastic shared story for your players, as well as take the spotlight as the monsters and villains presented in D&D Adventurers League adventure content. You are also responsible for adjudicating the rules, and providing your players with their characters’ experience points and rewards at the end of each session.
Players kind of have it easy. All you need to do is, find an event, make a character, and show up and play. If you don’t already have a group to play with and would like to find a public event, go to our store and sign up. Make sure you call ahead to confirm times and to see if they have room for new players.
CREATING A CHARACTER
Character creation is easy. You’ll need either a Players Handbook or a copy of the D&D Basic Rules, and a D&D Adventurers League character logsheet. Check out the D&D Adventurers League Players Guide for more information.
ORGANIZING AN EVENT
Follow these simple steps to get started!
Find a place to play. Game stores are typically the best places to organize D&D Adventurers League games, but you can organize an event at other locations such as a school, library, or community center.
Find Dungeon Masters. Recruit from among your friends, interested players in your store, or use social media and other online community groups to get Dungeon Masters for your event.
Advertise your event. Post flyers in nearby stores, schools, and community centers. Create online events and allow players to register for games. Use social media to promote your event too!
Prepare event materials. You’ll need things like blank character sheets, adventure logsheets, pre-generated characters, event registration lists, and copies of the adventures you’re featuring at the event.
Run your event and show your attendees a good time! Make sure to be responsive to feedback and address any issues that come up as soon as possible.
