Violet has vast experience with Fantasy Grounds and with running and playing in D&D Adventurers League games. She is going to be coordinating and organizing our efforts on this front and she has loads of ideas on how to do that. Please welcome here to the team and let us know if you would be interested in helping us grow this area. We would love to connect with DMs and players who are interested.

Thanks for the welcome! I'm looking forward to hitting the ground running.

One of my big goals is to try to get a re-occurring Adventurers League event going for Fantasy Grounds where people can come to play/experience this great software in a warm and welcoming community.

I'm looking for community members right now who are interested in joining the effort to get this off the ground and already have a starter list of individuals to connect with. If you are interested in helping and joining the effort as organizers or DMs or know other individuals who would be good to contact - please reach out!

I'm also open to listening to suggestions and other ideas people have to help DnD AL @ FG grow. Feel free to shoot me a private message and I can pass along my discord/other contact so we can chat :)

Hey viviolay, congrats. Understand it's early days, but are you envisaging something like weekly/fortnightly/etc "flights" -- as in a calendar with set schedules that players can sign themselves up for?

Yes, one of the first things I’m trying to get off the ground is a monthly dndal gameday.

I would also like to support other FG communities in getting their own reoccurring events going and we can have it added to the FG dndAL warhorn as well!

I’m currently in DM recruitment phase if you are interested and/or know some individuals who you think would be good. :)

Wish I had the chops for DMing something like this, but I'd prefer to dip my toe as a player. And I don't have any suggestions for the latter. Hence why I'm interested in seeing this get off the ground!

I have experience conducting DM trainings as well if you or anyone you know may be interested.

Most definately interested in this initiative. It's been several years since I last played, but have been looking into getting back into it and then the pandemic hit so my local game store hasn't been running any games. As such, I'm very interested in joining an online community with active games. Further down the line, I'll be interested in DM'ing (did a lot of that in various systems starting with AD&D and including most D&D editions, Warhammer Fantasy and 40K, various WoD settings, ...) but for now I've only just purchased my FGU Unlimited license and need to get to know the software before I feel confident running a smooth game.

Hey Violet, I just saw the announcement for the D&D Celebration event starting Sept 18th and see that it appears to be organized through the AL. I see some FG games are already listed, but am trying to find out information on how DMs can get involved in running some games for it? Do you have info or can you point us to what it takes to run a game at the event?

Yes. Some of the FG games listed are likely mine.
So the pool of DMs who are running at D&D Celebration were pulled from DMs who've participated in past events with Baldman Games' Heralds' Guild. So it's a bit different than other conventions where you can freely sign up to volunteer. I believe the best bet is to get involved with the Herald's Guild and run games at other events where sign ups are voluntary so that you have the opportunity to then be asked to run games at these bigger events. An example of this was Gen Con as I know a few people who signed up there for the first time and are now in the pool for this event.

I can ask more about what future events new dms to HG can sign up to participate in, so more folks here can get involved.

EDIT to ADD: I confirmed with BMG what I stated earlier. Their next big event that would be an opportunity to participate and therefore enter their DM pool is PAX online. I posted info on this thread. (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?61250-DM-Opportunity-PAX-Online-FG-DMs-Let-s-represent!-))

Just an update, I'm going to be on FGFriday this Friday (9am PDT/12pm EST) discussing some of the plans and the expected date of our first big AL event.
I'll make a separate thread in the morning so if people would like to see certain questions answered or hear me talk about what the timeline is looking like for the first event (discussing DM trainings, a "What is AL?" stream q&a and game, and the date of the event)- I'll be talking about it there.
