Join the Adventures
The Madison chapter of the Adventurer’s League is always looking for more Dungeon Masters and Players!
Due to limited tables and seats at each table, players are asked to RSVP by midnight the day before each session. Drop ins are welcomed and leaders would be happy to get you in or find you a place to get a feel for the games, but space at a game is not guaranteed without signing up in advance.
Sign up for games through their Mad D&D Meet Up page

FAQ about The Adventurer’s League at Noble Knight Games
What is the Adventurer’s League?
Adventurer’s League D&D is the official, formal, organized play version of D&D. Kind of like the difference between playing baseball in your backyard with friends vs. playing in a baseball league. There are more rules and requirements and it’s a bit stricter in terms of what you can bring to the field, but every bit as fun!
What kind of rules & requirements?
For formal Adventurer’s League play, your character must adhere strictly to the 5th Edition basic character creation rules. Your character must start at level 1, and level up only from playing in Adventurer’s League play nights. If this is your first time, we may recommend playing any one of the fully legal, pre-made level 1 characters provided by the Adventurer’s League. You can pick from a variety of provided options, customize it a bit with some appearance and name options, and go from there.

How can I get started with the local Adventurer’s League?
Contact the Adventurer’s League via their website or Meet Up page and let them know when you plan to attend, and that you want to try it for the first time. This will help their group leaders plan a space at a table for you. Knowing you are coming as a first time player in advance lets them schedule their tables appropriately with the correct number of level 1 tables vs. pre-existing higher level campaigns that may already be in process. Their website also has a great set of resources for getting started.
Can I check it out first before I commit to playing?
Sure! Stop in some Monday evening around 5:30 (after 6pm they will be busy actually running the games) and ask to speak to the organizers of the Adventurer’s League event. They can talk to you about where to start, 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?
All humans are welcome. All genders, orientations, and experience levels. 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. There is also often have a Young Adventurers table. 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), and a legal character (but we also have pre-generated characters if you would like to start with one of those). That’s it!
