Last night I ran my first Adventurers League game as a guest DM with the Fantasy Grounds College. Also a first, running DDAL09-01. I was pretty happy with the pacing of the module for new players and the mix of combat and role playing. I’m looking forward to running this again!
I ran the the very first D&D Adventurers League module DDEX1-1 Defiance in Phlan on Fantasy Grounds last night. I got the module FREE through Wizards Stay at Home. Play at Home. campaign going on right now. I has a hard time drumming up some players for this one but got off with the minimum requirement. As a story goes it was pretty good. It had a real obvious mechanic to introduce player’s characters to the AL faction system.
The module itself came pre-made from Dungeons Master Guild for Fantasy Grounds but boy was it rough. It took me awhile to realize the creater had set token lock to all the maps. After that we had a HUGE problem with the targeting system. As a DM I could target players through the Combat Tracker but my rolls still had to be dragged and dropped out of chat for the effects to take place. If I plan on running DDEX1-1 again I will probably create a new module from scratch.
Adventurers League Session Log from last nights Fantasy Grounds game.
Last night I ran Adventurers League module CCC-DRUID-01 on Fantasy Grounds. It took me about 3 hours to convert up from PDF but is was definitely worth it. The puzzles in Acts II. and III. were super enjoyable for me as a DM and I could tell my players had fun with it as well.
We had another great Adventurers League run tonight. Thank you to the members of the party for making this a fun event. I did learn my lesson, if it says 2 hours on the module description then it is going to take about 2 hours. I may look into combining two 2 hour sessions in the future. I will be updating events with session length in the future.
We had a great Adventurers League session last night with the opening module of Season 5 on Fantasy Grounds. We were able to complete 4 parts (out of 5) in 4 hours. I am super happy with the run and look forward to running more!
