Adventurer’s League and Eberron–two great tastes that taste great together, according to the latest from Wizards of the Coast. Read about how you can use Eberron material in your organized-play games.
With the release of the Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron, D&D has officially brought the setting into the 5th Edition fold. Though the initial release was not without some concern. Wayfinder’s Guide is technically still a playtest document–considered a living document until the rules get locked in through play. Which meant that you might not be able to use these rules in Eberron in Adventurer’s League, leaving folks wondering if they’d ever be able to visit Khorvaire in an AL campaign.
Well the latest announcement from WotC opens the doors wide, later this year. Here is Chris Lindsay, Guildmaster of the Adventurer’s League with more info.

I’m very pleased to announce that shortly after we begin D&D Adventurers League season 8 featuring Waterdeep: Dragon Heist (and I’m totally STOKED about that campaign as well), we will begin a whole new exploratory campaign featuring Eberron. The foundation for this campaign will be the Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron.You might ask, “What do I mean by exploratory?” As you can see with the publication of the Wayfinder’s Guide in the Dungeon Master’s Guild, Eberron is a work in progress once more. Rather than fine-tuning this wondrous campaign in a vacuum, we decided to put it out there for you to play with and tell us what YOU want out of Eberron. Think of it like everything else in fifth edition D&D. We want the fans to be able to provide us with feedback to help shape Eberron and the Adventurer’s League campaign that shall accompany it.
In the coming weeks, you can look forward to additional details as the admins and I ramp up our efforts to include the release of not ONE, but TWO brilliant D&D Adventurers League campaigns this Fall. So, buckle on your armor and prepare your spells, and don’t let me catch you sneaking around the Cogs.
Two Adventurer’s League Campaigns–which means of course you’ll need some additional content to help supplement your campaign. In an earlier announcement, we learned that the upcoming Encounters in Sharn is soon-to-be legal for use with the Adventurer’s League. Encounters in Sharn, of course, being exactly what it says, giving you encounters that you can drop in anytime, anywhere in Sharn.
