Then we get to the heavy discussion: D&D Adventurers League! Greg Marks aka Follow @skerrit7h3green aka Green Mario talks about how D&D organized play is incorporating more writers and refuses to spill the secrets on the themes of Season 6 of Adventurers League. (Miz Sylver wrote an adventure for the current season, Giant Diplomacy, which is premiering at NewCon in Portland, Oregon December 30-January 1!) Greg does tell us about a bunch of new improvements being brought into Adventurers League. The new season will see more Tier 4 adventures (for characters level 17-20, high level characters!), to encourage players to continue through the league adventures. The Adventurers League has also incorporated player feedback to make the adventures easier to run. The adventures will feature highlighted story beats, to help ensure continuity between adventures, for example, if the players are supposed to retrieve an item for a later adventure, the DM will know in the current adventure; recurring NPCs will have added characterization so they a more consistent across adventures; encounters that utilize special rules will highlight those rules and have tips and tricks to make the encounter more interesting to play. In addition, Wizards is taking a more active roll in leading the D&D community, through customer service and organizations like the Heralds Guild. It's great that Wizards is paying more attention to D&D! If you want to see Green Mario in person, his early 2017 convention schedule is:
- Polar Vortex in Glen Ellyn, IL January 25-27.
- Winter Fantasy, February 1-5 in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
- Conflagration 17, February 17-19 at the Sheraton Brookfield (near Milwaukee, WI).
- GaryCon, March 23-26 in Lake Geneva, WI.
Thanks for listening! If you have any questions or comments, we want to hear from you. Do you play D&D? What are your thoughts on Star Wars: Rogue One? Is Greg more of a Spiky Mario than a Green Mario? Tweet, email, or comment on the blog or Facebook to let us know!
