I, for one, am glad that the designers don’t account for AL when making a hardcover adventure. I think the designers should have as few limitations as possible. #dnd
I've never been organised enough to join an RPGA campaign and I've only done Organised Play with Pathfinder once, but I think it's a shame that it would come up in surveys as unpopular.Mike Mearls on Twitter wrote:Our research has shown that the way RPGs are played in RPGA-style OP programs - or at least how they are perceived to be played - is pretty unpopular with people who want to play RPGs.
I'm actually interested in learning more about the various RPGA campaigns and have hoped that WotC could put together a contract to allow RPGA adventure designers to put their content up into a special "opt-in" RPGA area on DMs Guild.
