When registration opened last Monday, attendees may have noticed that none of the Dungeons & Dragons games listed within the Adventurers League Organized Play category were available for sign-up. Adventurers League offerings at Carnage have been coordinated by Mark Merida with the Role Initiative, as in the last few years. To help explain the delay in the opening of registration for Adventurers League games and the plan going forward, Mark prepared the following (you can download the original PDF here):
Dear Carnage Community,
You may have noticed that registration for Adventurers League has been delayed past the start of Carnage’s pre-registration. This was caused by a miscommunication on our end, and we regret the impact that this has had on Carnage registrants, Adventurers League players, and our Kickstarter patrons. We understand that this has, despite our best intentions, caused an inconvenience to the Carnage community, and for that we apologize.
In an effort to open communication, we would like to announce that sign-ups for Adventurers League will open on October 2nd. All attendees will be able to access our registration section in Tabletop Events, and select the games of their choice. While we understand that this later date is an inconvenience, we hope that this clarification demonstrates our earnest desire to do right by the community of gamers who make this all possible.
We’re also excited to announce that as a good faith gesture to the community, we have collaborated with convention staff to offer a seat at each of our Tier 2 Author Only tables, available as prizes through a Carnage-orchestrated raffle that will take place after October 2nd. These are special events that provide limited access to exclusive modules that can only be run by their authors, the Adventurers League Admins.
We look forward to seeing you at Carnage!
Mark Merida, Convention Organizer
The Role Initiative
Carnage’s first concern is ensuring as smooth and pleasant a convention experience as possible for all attendees, from registration to the convention weekend itself. We truly regret any inconvenience or confusion this has caused attendees planning to participate in the Adventurers League games at the convention this year.
Looking forward, general registration will open on October 2nd as planned, with tickets made available through the Tabletop.Events registration system. For those interested in the “Author Only” tickets to be raffled off, you can stay up to date on how to participate here on the Carnage website, or on the convention’s Facebook and Twitter feeds. We will share how the raffle will operate in the coming days.
Thank you to everyone for your patience and good grace in working through this. We look forward to seeing you all at Killington for the convention!
