We're STILL growing! We're glad to announce that DM Jair will be joining DM Sam, DM Richard, and DM Chris to host a fourth table taking over DM Brian's table for a while for us every Wednesday for D&D Encounters! Come out and join us for some fun each Wednesday night.
IMPORTANT NOTE: D&D Adventurers League rules permit a maximum of 7 players per table. When you sign up, please add a comment indicating which table you normally play on, or let us know that you are new to our event. New attendees will get a spot at a table where there is an empty seat. If you do not sign up on the event page and the table fills up, it will be the DM's discretion if you are permitted to play as a walk-in. Thank you!
This D&D Encounters campaign is designed for players both experienced and new to the game of Dungeons & Dragons and to 5th Edition (D&D 5e). The campaign is set in the long-established D&D setting of the Forgotten Realms in the land of Faerun. The games will run each Wednesday evening from 7pm - 10pm at the store. Come and create an original character to play, or choose a pre-generated character to explore this exciting and rich game world, filled with fearsome enemies, brave heroes, and wondrous magic.
You need never have played 5e (or any other edition of D&D for that matter). Experienced players are welcomed as well, but if you've played through the adventure, try not to spoil the story for new players! We welcome any and all who are interested in playing or learning the game. Come out and join the fun!
More DMs Wanted! Would you like to run a D&D Encounters table? Our community is growing and sooner or later we'll need more DMs. Talk to DM Ken about the need and the opportunity to help our group grow.
Q: Do I need any experience to play D&D Encounters?
A: No. D&D Encounters is ideal for new or experienced players. It introduces a story and adventure that lets new players jump in and allows experienced players to fully engage their imaginations to help the game come alive.
Q: Waitlist? Attendee limit? Whaddya mean?
A: D&D Encounters recognizes "official" game tables with a maximum of 7 players plus 1 DM. Right now we are launching with 1 DM and 1 table, so until we can recruit more DMs, we need a wait list. Please get on the wait list and come out anyway if the event fills up. Sometimes people who sign up can't make it, and if the store sees that there's a demand for more DMs and more tables, they may help us recruit more!
Q: Do I have to play every week?
A: No. D&D Encounters is designed so that the table continues the game each week wherever it left off the week before. You can show up every week and see the whole adventure or just come when you can make it and participate in the sessions when you are present.
Q: Do I have to buy any materials or books to play D&D Encounters?
A: No. It will help to bring a pencil, but everything you need to play D&D Encounters will be available at the table. If you want to create a first-level character before you come, you can download free character sheets and basic D&D 5e Rules from the Wizards of the Coast website. You can also download the official D&D Adventurers League Player's Guide. Note that to be legal for D&D Encounters play, any original characters must be created following the D&D Adventurers League rules.
Q: Can I bring my spouse or friend to the game?
A: Yes. D&D is always more fun with friends. Be sure to invite them or bring them along.
Q: Are you looking for more DMs for your location?
A: We're just launching at the store, so it's too early to tell if we'll need additional DMs. But please come out and play on Wednesdays to get a feel for our game, our players, and our location. If you want to be a DM, make sure you tell us of your interest and give us your contact information. If demand grows, we'll reach out to those people who have shown an interest in running a table before anyone else!
Q: How do I get more information?
A: You can leave a question here in this thread, or you can drop Ken an email at [masked] or Richard at [masked]. We look forward to seeing anyone who is interested and available in learning D&D 5e and playing the D&D Encounters official adventures.
