If you are a convention organizer of any size – from small, one-day events to multi-day international conventions, we can help you. Part of the D&D Adventurers League is providing content to local, national, and international conventions, including some event exclusives designed to draw attendees who love Dungeons & Dragons. These include Premiere Modules, D&D Epics, Fai Chen’s Fantastical Faire, special content unlocked by special guests, and more listed below.
Please note that we require all public play events that are requesting any of the following options to post and adhere to an appropriate Code of Conduct.
Dungeon Masters Guild Modules
ANY event can run the D&D Adventurers League modules released on the Dungeon Master’s Guild in current and past seasons. Our designers work hard on the AL modules, so please note each Dungeon Master is expected to have their own purchased version of a module run at an event. Some conventions choose to purchase the modules for the Dungeon Masters or reward DMs who already have the modules.
As multi-day events fill out the Request for Premiere, Epic, or Regional Preview Adventure form, we take their event data into account. If your event’s timing, location, and size fits our needs we may select you for an opportunity to host an adventure premiere! Premiere conventions are given complimentary copies of the module to give to their DMS as well as convention support provided directly by Wizards of the Coast (usually in the form of DM swag such as stickers or books).
Similarly to the Premiere Adventure process, we are constantly on the lookout for opportunities for regions across the world to host previews of the adventures – while not the first place that an adventure runs, preview locations have the chance to share some early access glory with their players!
If a multi-day event happens outside of the region where a module premiered, they may be offered the opportunity to become a preview event. These events receive early access to purchase the module on the Dungeon Master’s Guild. Typically only one convention will be selected per region.
Conventions (single- or multi-day) and store game days can request a D&D Epic by filling out the Request for Premiere, Epic, or Regional Preview Adventure form. D&D Epics are exciting multi-table events where participants cooperate in a “mass raid” of truly EPIC proportions; as every table works toward the same goal, individual tables act as squads that might take on different tasks, possibly affecting other tables or unlocking side quests needed to progress the event.
Each season’s D&D Epics have minimum table requirements, which events must meet to offer the adventure. Often, these limits are as low as two or three tables per tier of play!
Please give at least two (2) months of notice if you are requesting an Epic from us.
Similar to Epics, Opens magnify D&D to a larger, multi-table scale… with a competitive twist. Tables compete in some of the Adventurers League’s most dangerous quests to see who reigns supreme. D&D Opens can be requested by filling out the request form at the bottom of this page and are rewarded on a case-by-case basis.
Please give at least two (2) months of notice if you are requesting an Open from us.
Community Created Content (CCC)
We’ve introduced a number of revisions to the CCC process. If we are accepting pitches for new CCC adventures, the link will be posted here. In general, we expect to have this submission process available roughly 6 months before a quarter begins, so if for example your event takes place between January 1 2020 and March 30 2020, the submission window should be open from roughly July 1 – 14 2019, with approvals to happen July 15 – 21 2019.
But there are other things to consider as well! All of our CCC documentation is available for public viewing; we do this so that events can be ready to submit their best possible concepts during the submission window! When providing a CCC concept, be aware of the following:
- concepts must use the provided form, and adventures must use the provided template
- all submissions must be in docx or pdf format; anything else will be rejected
- all events with CCC must be approved, so be sure to review the Code of Conduct section below
- we don’t have to review all tier 1 CCC concepts, as there are some pre-approved concepts included in the documentation now… so go forth and create awesome stories!
- all CCCs must be reviewed by our team prior to being posted for public sale, including those made from the pre-approved concepts
If you have issues using the provided CCC concept form, be aware that you will need to use Adobe Acrobat (free) to interact with the options in those fields. There is some scripting “under the hood” to link tiers and rewards, and other PDF viewers and operating systems sometimes fail to display those options appropriately. Failing to use the provided CCC concept form will result in your submission being rejected.
We are currently accepting CCC proposals for events that occur between April 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020! The submission window is open from September 5th through 21st (noon EST)
Conventions and game store events can request Fai Chen’s Fantastical Faire by filling out the request form at the end of this page. Fai Chen’s is a trading post that facilitates the trade of magic item certificates between players and offers a seasonal selection of magic items and trinkets for trade or for sale from Fai Chen (the event staff operating the trading post). There are event special downtime activities that aren’t available anywhere else!
“Limited edition” certificates available only during certain seasons – including pets, properties, and memberships to organizations in the Forgotten Realms – are a popular draw for the Adventurers League participants.
Please give at least two (2) months of notice if you are requesting the Fai Chen Fantastical Faire.
Conventions can request special guests from D&D Adventurers League campaign staff or from Wizards of the Coast. An event with a special guest unlocks Author-Only adventures (DDAO) run by admins, a special edition of Fai Chen’s Fantastical Faire, and other exclusive seasonal content. Click here to learn more about special guests.
Charity events can request past seasons’ D&D Epics and, approved on a case-by-case basis, in-game benefits available for purchase by event participants. Click here to learn more about how the D&D Adventurers League can support your charity event.
Code of Conduct (CoC) tips
Here are some things to think about (and some things we look for!) when creating your Code of Conduct:
- how can your attendees identify your event staff?
- how can incidents be reported?
- where can incidents be reported?
- when something is reported, what is expected of the event staff?
This isn’t an exhaustive list, but please consider them when making your CoC and submitting your requests.
