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.
D&D Opens & Interactive Adventures
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. Each table of players will be presented with the same adventure scenario and will work independently of the other tables to complete their tasks. The DM holds a scoresheet, and will keep track of points gained or lost according to the event’s metric. At the end of the session, the DMs turn in the scoresheets and the winners are announced! D&D Opens and Interactive Adventures 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)
Community-Created Content (CCC) adventures are AL-legal adventures written by community members and published on the DMs Guild, and all of our CCC documentation is available for public viewing!
As the Community Created Content program continues to grow, the Adventurers League Administrators and Wizards of the Coast teams are evaluating the existing process and how to balance incoming requests, including reducing the long lead-time (9 months!) of the current multi-stage process.
We anticipate releasing additional information, guidance, and options for community-published works in late spring or after the next storyline is announced by Wizards of the Coast. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work to streamline our processes!
Fai Chen’s Fantastical Faire
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 Competitive Adventures 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 mandatory things that 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.
At this time, due to concerns surrounding the transmission of COVID-19, we are not currently accepting new submissions for in-person event support. We encourage our community members to comply with all CDC recommendations, exercise good judgement when deciding to attend events, and stay safe.
