Join the Adventures

Hail and well met, fellow adventurers! Madison D&D promotes open play and collective storytelling through Adventurers League, the official D&D organized play program. Whether you’re curious about D&D or are a veteran, there’s a seat for you.

Sign up by midnight via Meetup the day before each session to reserve a seat. Drop ins are welcome, and organizers will find you a table to get a feel for the games.

FAQ about Adventurer’s League at Noble Knight Games


What is the Adventurer’s League?

Adventurers League (or AL for short) is Dungeons & Dragons’ official, organized play campaign using fifth edition rules. In this shared world, your characters experience adventure in D&D’s popular Forgotten Realms. Adventurers League permits portability of your character(s) between sessions and events, including those run at game conventions.


What are the rules & requirements?

Adventurers League follows rules-as-written in the D&D 5th Edition Player’s Handbook and other Forgotten Realms sources.

The Adventurer’s League Player’s Guide provides more specific guidance and a list of sources available for building your character.  The league’s organizers also have pre-generated characters that you can start with and rebuild after your first session.

Dungeons & Dragons has a dedicated Adventurers League website that includes the latest rules for building and playing your character:


How can I get started with the local Adventurer’s League?

Sign up to play via the MadDnD Meetup page and let them know you’re a new player. This will help their organizers plan space at a table for you. Knowing you are coming as a first-time player in advance lets them schedule their tables.


Can I check it out first before I commit to playing?

Sure! Stop in some Monday evening before 5:30 PM, (announcements and games start at 6:00) and ask to speak to one of the Adventurers League organizers. They can talk to you about where to start.  They’ll show you some character options, and get you all the information you need to be ready to start playing either that night, or the next week with a plan to include you at a table. They love and encourage new players so they will be happy to talk to you about this!


Who can play?

Madison D&D is an all-inclusive community that does not restrict players for any reason.

This group has had players from ages 7 to 87 – if you’re on the younger side (13 or younger) we recommend you have a parent or guardian join you.  We also have many families that play together – and encourage raising up the next generation of geeks on the best RPG of all time. Please keep in mind that per the Noble Knight Games Gaming Hall Code of Conduct, children 10 or younger must be accompanied by an adult.


What should I bring?

We recommend you bring a notebook and pencil, a set of dice (you can also buy a set in the store for as little as a few dollars) a Players Handbook (if you have one) or the D&D Basic Rules, and a legal character (but they also have pre-generated characters if you would like to start with one of those). That’s it!

We hope to see you at D&D soon!
