Creating a Character for AL Games

Looking to get into a game?
  1. Post your character in the AL Character Creation folder.
    Using the MW Sheet is required, a formatted post sheet is optional.
  2. Create and link your AL Logsheet.
    We recommend Adventurers League Log (make sure the sheet is public)
  3. Notify DMs that your character is ready for validation.
    Once validated the DM will move it to the AL Approved PCs folder.

All Characters must be made according to the Adventurers League Player's Guide or Adventurers League Player's Guide for Eberron.

PHB + 1. As per the ALPG, the number of books you can use is restricted. You can use the PHB + 1 other book (PHB + XGE + Wayfinders Guide for Eberron). This affects your selection of Races, Classes, Feats, and Spells (Backgrounds and Languages are not limited by this rule).

Multiple Games in Progress

When a character is Complete and has passed muster (verified to conform to the ALPG) you may request to be added to any table with open spaces. Check out the Open Games thread for a list of active games and their status for players. When a table fills up a game can commence. If no tables have spaces then you can keep your PC in the AL Approved PCs folder until a space becomes available. All new spaces tend to get advertised in the Chamber of Waiting so make sure you are subscribed so as not to miss out.

Note: Periodically we go through all inactive PCs and check that you still wish to play, if we get no response within a week we shuffle your app to the Dungeons, it can be retrieved on request. If your account has been inactive for over a month we may remove you. You are more than welcome back, just ask, we only do this to keep the forum tidy, it's not a banishment.

FAQ

Here are a few questions pulled from the FAQ. Feel free to review the entire Adventurers League FAQ.

Can I use the Variant and Optional Rules in the PHB/DMG?
The only optional or variant rules available for use are:
  • Variant: Customizing Ability Scores (PHB)
  • Variant Human Traits (PHB)
  • Half-Elf Variants (SCAG)
  • Option: Human Languages (SCAG)
  • Tiefling Variants (SCAG)
  • Variant: Playing on a Grid (PBR)
  • Variant: Skills with Different Abilities (PHB)

Without specific campaign documentation, any other variant or optional rules, such as Variant: Quasit Familiar (MM) are not available for use.

What About Unearthed Arcana?
Unearthed Arcana isn't an allowed rules resource; without specific campaign documentation it isn't available for use.

Do I Need to Maintain an Adventure Logsheet?
Yes, you must maintain a separate Adventurer Logsheet for each of your characters. This logsheet catalogs your character's progression throughout their adventuring career.

Do I Need A DCI Number?
No. DCI numbers are only required when playing D&D Adventures League at a store that typically report their events through the Wizards Event Reporter (WER).

Log Sheet

The simplest method has been to use Adventurers League Log. It's a free, easy to use AL Log Sheet. Be sure to link your Log Sheet to your character's post and make the log sheet public.
~ or ~
You can copy this BBCode Logsheet into your character's thread to track its progress. The top version is how it will look, the bottom is the code needed to create it. Copy and paste the code into your character threads. To keep your thread clean and tidy you can place each logsheet in spoiler tags.

Custom Backgrounds

While players cannot make up your own background feature (i.e. "Discovery!" or "Researcher"), Adventurers League permits your background to be whatever you want.

To get started on customizing a background, select an equipment package belonging to any of the backgrounds and a feature from any of the backgrounds and the following:

Any 2 Skills
Any 2 of either tool proficiencies, vehicle proficiencies, or languages

As a citation, go to 925821-DDAL_FAQ_7.1.pdf. On page 5 of the .pdf, it offers:

Can I make a custom background?Yep. You can create a custom background for your character by following the rules in the PHB. You can't use custom background features, however.


Then, in the PHB, page 125, there is:

Customizing a BackgroundYou might want to tweak some of the features of a background so it better fits your character or the campaign setting.
To customize a background, you can replace one feature with any other one, choose any two skills, and choose a total of two tool proficiencies or languages from the sample backgrounds.


In AL Play, it also cites that you can select any language from the books as a language you get, not just the ones from other backgrounds.
