Adventurers League Update
|Game On: Less Rules, More Play | Wizards of the Coast|
Chris Tulach, Wizards D&D Organized Play posted a blog post today covering some feedback from player surveys. Highlights are as follows:Rules and Paperwork. We heard loud and clear that more rules and restrictions aren’t the way to go. Portability of characters between adventures is a big concern. Keeping the paperwork to a minimum is important. Awareness and Communication. We need to provide more news and information on Adventurers League. We need to focus on bringing in new players and Dungeon Masters. Hearing from Wizards on play is important. Connection. Wizards needs to help with connecting players and Dungeon Masters. Finding games can be challenging, especially for newer players.

Loosely connected demiplanes are all that’s left of a fractured multiverse.I’m putting together a demiplane for this project where you’ll find yourself transported to a land where size is relative, and things are going to get rather zany. With the amazing team on this project, I highly recommend hitting the follow button to be notified when the Kickstarter launches.

The Dreams of the Red Wizards storyline continues as the Terminal Ambitions arc begins!
