Welcome to the D&D Adventurers League Wiki!

Overview

The D&D Adventurers League is an ongoing official organized play campaign for Dungeons & Dragons. It uses the fifth edition of the Dungeons & Dragons rules, and features the Forgotten Realms setting. You can play D&D Adventurers League games at any place that features adventures bearing the D&D Adventurers League logo. You can create a character and bring that character to games anywhere D&D Adventurers League is supported.

Most D&D Adventurers League games are public, in-person play events. Typical venues for these events are game and hobby stores, conventions, and public-accessible game day events.

Adventures

Storyline Seasons

The D&D Adventurers League releases adventures connected in theme to a Storyline Season. Each season is supported by an D&D Encounters season, a series of D&D Expeditions adventures, plus one or more published modules. In addition, storylines will have a variety of cross-media support.

Each season also has an associated Story Origin, which details the rules options that characters may use. However, characters may be created using any active Story Origin and play through adventures connected to any Storyline Season in any order (as long as level restrictions are met).

The Storyline Seasons (as of August 2015) are:

The Setting

D&D Adventurers League adventures are set in the Forgotten Realms, on the continent of Faerûn. Some adventures, including ones in adventure products available in-store, are set in the Sword Coast region—a savage wilderness dotted with powerful and iconic cities such as Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter, and Waterdeep. Other adventures, especially ones created especially for D&D Adventurers League play, are set in the Moonsea region—a brutal land beset by bandits, monstrous hordes, and tyrants.

Factions

In the Forgotten Realms, five factions have risen to prominence. These factions seek to further their own aims while opposing destructive forces that threaten the folk of Faerûn. Each faction has its own motivations, goals, and philosophy. Some are more heroic than others, but all band together in times of trouble to thwart major threats.

Harpers A scattered network of spellcasters and spies who advocate equality and covertly oppose the abuse of power.
Order of the Gauntlet Composed of faithful and vigilant seekers of justice who protect others from the depredations of evildoers.
Emerald Enclave A widespread group of wilderness survivalists who preserve the natural order while rooting out unnatural threats.
Lords’ Alliance A loose coalition of established political powers concerned with mutual security and prosperity.
Zhentarim An unscrupulous shadow network that seeks to expand its influence and power throughout Faerûn.
