As part of this year’s Midwinter Festival, we requested pictures of your Adventurers League parties accomplishing heroic deeds. Send, we asked, and send, you did! The images show many an adventurer (and pirate… and dinosaur…) in your homes, at your friendly local game stores, and at conventions and events. They show adventurers of all ages and all levels of experience with Dungeons and Dragons, including one grainy picture circa 1999 of a group still rolling dice together today. They show adventurers all over the remembered realms, including across the United States, Canada, Denmark, Russia, Italy, and the Philippines. The members of the Adventurers League are diverse, inclusive, creative, and wildly enthusiastic, and we could not be more proud of this mighty community.
For those who sent in pictures, there is a special Midwinter thank you gift waiting in your e-mail inbox. For everyone to enjoy, we present the AL Midwinter Festival Photos of 2017:
A special shout out to Connor, who shared this story with his group’s photo:
Guys, you have no clue how important this gaming group is to me.
I moved to a small town for a new job, and it was so hard to meet anybody. I met a few folks at a board game Meetup, and I asked if any of them were interested in D&D and other RPG’s. Some said yes.
We started with the 5e playtest, to the actual edition. We built our own convention, the D8 Summit, which helps a local homeless shelter. We have our own traveling DM band that helps area conventions pull off their tables. Our gaming group has almost 200 members now that are local, plus hundreds more that we’ve met in our travels. And it’s all because of these awesome folks.
Here are some pictures from our Curse of Strahd launch party, in cosplay. This isn’t everybody, but every person in these photos is very special.
Onward to 2018, adventurers, and see you on the other side!
