Wizards announced yesterday the release of its new Organized Play program for Dungeons & Dragons, D&D Adventurers League, to be launched in August at Gen Con. The program unifies all the various D&D play experiences and organizes them into three categories: Epics, Encounters, and Expeditions. The unifying theme will center on the return of Tiamat in the Tyranny of Dragons storyline. Who will manage this new process? Wizards isn’t telling…yet:
The D&D Adventurers League is maintained not only by Wizards of the Coast, but also by a group of representatives we’ve chosen as administrators to help out players, Dungeon Masters, and organizers. We have a community manager who’s talks with the public and gathers feedback, a content manager that develops and edits our adventures, and a resource manager that does a lot of the organization around schedules and provides support to our designers. Each one of these roles serves a very important purpose, and each individual was chosen based on their experience and passion for public play. Soon, we’ll introduce the team!
A good bet would be Baldman Games, who has faithfully shepherded Living games at Gen Con for years, David Christ, Willi Burger, and Dustin Snyder.
