This is where players will find all the information they need to know about the main competitive D&D event. Please note that this area will be updated significantly between now and the event.
What’s it all about?
Every 100 years, a great competition is held to determine who throughout the land of Faerun holds the favour of the gods and is considered the greatest in the eyes of the people. The time is upon us once again, but this time, it's different. The gods have chosen to bestow honour on a group, not an individual.
And to test these groups of adventurers, an enormous labyrinth in a pocket universe has been created. Teams will be established and will start at one of many entrances to the labyrinth. And at the end of a single day, victors will emerge.
How does it work?
This event will be team based and is a competition. Each team will complete six one-hour scenarios throughout the day. Each scenario will award a score out of 100, based on the achievement of certain objectives.
Each scenario takes place in a pocket universe where magic (all kinds) works normally, though there may be some unexpected environmental effects if the rules of the gods attempt to be broken.
Characters can be pre-made using the standard races and classes within the 5th Edition Players Handbook. Sorry, no homebrew due to the complexity of the event. Starting level of all characters will be 10th and will remain at that level for the entirety of the event.
The event will be split into two sessions: 8:30am to 11:30am and 1pm to 4pm.
Each session will comprise of 3 x 1hr scenarios and at the conclusion of each scenario, players will 'reset' back to full health, etc so they are starting each scenario fresh.
The winning team at the end of the day will be the one with the highest score out of 600. Preliminary scores will be provided in the main lunch break.
The specifics of the prize pool are unknown at this stage, but it is expected that the winning team will receive approximately $1,200 worth of prizes.
