Hi all,

just to let you know about the new Wednesday night d&d Encounters event at The Vault.


What is D&D Encounters?


D&D Encounters is an in-store weekly mini-campaign played out one encounter per session, with sessions every Wednesday. Each week, you gain Renown Points for accomplishments made both in-game and out-of-game. Points earn you exclusive rewards that you can apply to your current and future D&D Encounters characters.
D&D Encounters seasons rotate every few months, giving you the opportunity to try new adventure settings multiple times per year!

What Do I Need to Play?

Each D&D Encounters season is a new mini-campaign experience. You can jump in anytime. Pre-generated characters are always available for play, and some seasons will give you the option to create your own character.

What Do I Need to DM?

If you are going to DM, your store organizer will have all the adventure materials you need to prepare to run the weekly sessions, including the adventure, maps, and tokens to represent the characters, monsters, and other game elements. Preparing for a game couldn’t be easier; simply read the background material and prep the encounter for that week!

What Kind of Rewards Do I Earn?

Players earn exclusive D&D Encounters cards that provide your character with in-game benefits that can be applied to your current season’s character and future seasons’ characters. DMs earn different valuable game aids as a thank you for running D&D Encounters sessions.

More information to follow.

Places are going to be limited so please Pm either myself or darrell about a space.

I'd like to play, but I'm in / running a few games already, so don't hold a place specially for me...

Which edition of D&D will this be?

4th, D&D Encounters is the latest effort to promote D&D by Wizards, hence it uses the most recent version of the rules. Think of it like Friday Night Magic for D&D.

I thought as much.

I'm away from Daventry training at the moment, but when I'm back, I think I'll drop in to try this out.

Does this have to be on a Wednesday? I know that the official line from WotC is that it's a Wednesday thing, but I can see potential conflicts/issues with it running at the same time as the kids' club (unless you think starting a RPG session at 8 is a good idea...). Also, I have martial arts training on Wednesdays, and if it were any other day I'd be interested in joining.

Just asking.

Hi Ninja,

we are running one on a Wednesday for the kids and I am sure that darrell is fine with running an event on a Thursday for adults.

I will e-mail him and ask him to post on here.

Take care

GVS

Steve's right, I have no problems running a second table on a different night, it just takes a little diplomacy with my wife. :)

As long as we can get the minimum of four players, go for it.

(Including my two boys, what's the current number for Wednesdays please Steve? I haven't heard from any of them directly...)

For what it's worth, an FAQ on D&D Encounters, which includes the basic character creation rules has gone up on the Wizards Community D&D group...

A separate night for adults does sound good, and I'd be happier joining in one of these.

Please do bear in mind though that there is at least one DnD campaign running (or due to be running again soon) on a Thursday.
Altair does generally like to run fortnightly, or every three weeks depending on what other games people are wanting to run - so I can't see you guys clashing too much. You might just find that certain adult players won't make it to the encounters every week.

Thanks for doing that Heliios, I'll try to get the links I was talking about posted by the end of the day.

Glad to hear that people are enjoying things so far.
