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.
What You Need to DM
If you’re new to the role of Dungeon Master, you only need a few things to get started.
- A Player’s Handbook or the D&D Basic Rules.
- The D&D Adventurers League Players Guide and Dungeon Master’s Guide.
- An official D&D Adventurers League adventure.
- A set of dice, pens/pencils, and paper.
- 3-7 players.
Players kind of have it easy. All you need to do is, find an event, make a character, and show up and play. 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 Player’s 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.
