ADVENTURER’S LEAGUE: TALES OF THE YAWNING PORTAL continues this week! 

Third Eye Faithful, wanna score some sick loot and kill a ton of monsters along the way?

Join us for our weekly DUNGEONS & DRAGON’S ADVENTURER’S LEAGUE night, which is part of the Wizards of the Coast ORGANIZED PLAY network for DnD!

This Spring, we explore many realms as we play through the TALES OF THE YAWNING PORTAL!
WHAT TO EXPECT: When the shadows grow long in Waterdeep and the fireplace in the taproom of the Yawning Portal dims to a deep crimson glow, adventurers from across the Forgotten Realms, and even from other worlds, spin tales and spread rumors of dark dungeons and lost treasures. Some of the yarns overheard by Durnan, the barkeep of the Yawning Portal, are inspired by places and events in far-flung lands from across the D&D multiverse, and these tales have been collected into a single volume.
Within this tome are seven of the most compelling dungeons from the 40+ year history of Dungeons & Dragons. Some are classics that have hosted an untold number of adventurers, while others are some of the most popular adventures ever printed.

Tales from the Yawning Portal includes the following adventures:
Against the Giants
Dead in Thay
Forge of Fury
Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan
Sunless Citadel
Tomb of Horrors
White Plume Mountain

MORE ABOUT ADVENTURER’S LEAGUE: AL provides a running story line where the players actions determine the fate of the world. Every season of AL builds on the one prior of the players actions or inactions. It is structured in such a way that players can drop in and out as desired but to witness and take part in the full campaign they should return weekly. With a worldwide community they can take their characters and play anywhere adventures league rules as followes. While there are some restrictions on character creation and rules variance, it allows a fair play across the board to allow the flexiablity of travel and play.
