One D&D Playtest @ Virtual D&D Weekends

Welcome to One D&D

What is This?

The Virtual D&D Weekends are a monthly event produced by us, Baldman Games, in partnership with Wizards of the Coast. As a partnered Premiere Organizer, we debut the latest D&D Adventurers League modules as well as hardcover adventures adapted for “public play”, classic adventures, author-run sessions, and more.

Now our partnership with Wizards is bringing a chance for you to playtest One D&D, the forthcoming evolution of Dungeons & Dragons!

Help Shape What’s Next for Dungeons & Dragons!

We’ll be running designated One D&D playtest tables at some of our Virtual D&D Weekends! We’ve recruited some of our elite Dungeon Masters to help players explore the different aspects of this open playtest experience. And after you’re done playing, we’ll let you know when the surveys go live every month, so you can help to shape the future of the game!

How this Works

You’ll be able to use any of the One D&D Unearthed Arcana playtest documents that are available from our friends at D&D Beyond at the time the game is running. Documents from previous months that are still available on the website are allowed but note that you’ll only be giving feedback on the newest playtest document each month. Also, any documents that have been removed/retired/replaced will not be available for play at our tables.

After participating, we invite you to join our Community Discord server. We’ll post an announcement there every month when the feedback survey goes live on D&D Beyond, so you never miss one!

The Details

Playtest tables will be clearly tagged with “One D&D Playtest” to distinguish them from our regular adventures. As for what character to bring, keep reading!

You may build your character using the any combination of current 5th edition rulebooks listed in the Forgotten Realms Adventurers League Players Guide as sources for character options, as well as the One D&D sources described in “How This Works” above. The description for your session will list the required level for your character, so using the guidelines laid out in the Adventures League Players Guide, plus the “Starting at Higher Level” rules from the Dungeon Master’s Guide (Chapter 1 > Creating a Campaign > Tiers of Play) for a “High Magic Campaign”, you can build your character to the required level.
Characters created for Playtests are NOT eligable to continue on in Adventurers League or other organized play games, and should be considered “one-shot” characters.

Ticketing for our games is handled through the Yawning Portal and dates for upcoming Virtual D&D Weekends are on our home page. Simply buy a ticket for a game tagged as “One D&D”, follow the link in your ticket confirmation email, and show up ready to play.
