This year, Campaign Gaming will be offering 6 signature campaign offerings, 4 of which have been extremely successful in years past – Catalyst Lab’s ShadowRun Missions (SRM/CMP), Paizo’s Pathfinder Society (PFS) and Starfinder Society (SFS), and WotC’s D&D Adventurers League (DDAL). In addition, we are going to be offering 2 new campaigns to Dragon Con – Modiphius’ Star Trek Adventures and Paradigm’s Living Arcanis 5E. At present, we do not have a firm commitment on the specific events that will be offered, as release schedules for events have not been finalized by the various companies that offer Campaign style gaming. When current release schedules are available (ensuring the ability to provide the newest event scenarios, while being able to guarantee these scenarios will be received in a timely fashion for the show), we will update the Gaming Registration website (http://gaming.dragoncon.org/) . All event scheduling should also be available for the final Gaming Guide and Dragon Con 2018 app.

D&D OnDemand, under the DDAL umbrella, are scheduled 2-hour events for those who are wanting an introduction to D&D Adventurers League, or even just to 5th Edition D&D, or just have a couple hours to kill.  These events are geared towards new characters and new players.  Pre-generated characters, basic rules, dice, and pencils will be provided for those who wish to just show up and play.  The D&D OnDemand events will even cater to replay, as the available content varies from slot to slot.  All that is required is 2 Generic Tickets, which can be purchased at Gaming Registration. These events will run every 2 hours from 9am to 9pm Friday/Saturday/Sunday and 9am to 3pm Monday.

D&D Experience, under the DDAL umbrella, is a multi-slot event that takes place over the course of the convention. You will keep the same great DM and players for the entire series of adventures. Your one ticket covers all the listed slots of your track. We are offering 2 different tracks this year, with each track having 2 different slot offerings.  These events will be played in a smaller room away from the main DDAL gaming area.  These are very limited in quantity to ensure the very best gaming experience, and are priced accordingly.
