  1. Hi Robert,
    I’m the founder of Game’n’Joy and I’d like to organize the kick-off for of this new adventure in Italy. Can you provide me some hints and info, please?
    Thanks a lot
    Alex

    • H Alex,

      In July you can play D&D Adventurers League adventures by purchasing the D&D Starter Set and in August the Hoard of the Dragon Queen Adventure. Either of those can be run at home, in store, or at a convention. After August, though a store, you’ll be able to get D&D Expeditions for store or convention play. Later this summer we’ll provide you with specific contact information for requesting those adventures.

      • Thanks a lot for you quick reply and courtesy.

  2. Will we hear the stories of the Epic Adventures after they’re played? I enjoy hearing about the adventures, even if they’re never released to the public at large. I feel like hearing what went down is important when trying to build the story that the campaign as a whole is building, so I hope the answer is yes!

  3. It looks like there is a pretty big gap in the release of new material from December to March. Any info forthcoming about what might be available in that timeframe?

    • For store games the gap should be January & February, this is due to no premier conventions running during that time. Rise of Tiamat will have just released in November, so there should be plenty of content to get you through until new Expeditions become available.
