ROLE CALL RETURNS!
OCTOBER 28th, 2019

It was a bit of wild year for the Adventurers League. The Season 8 changes made to the organized play program in late 2018 were controversial to say the least, and while we managed Role Call 2 under these new rules, the proposed “Seasonality” rules that came out in mid 2019 left us wondering if we would be able to provide an Adventurers League experience comparable to what we had offered in the past. Fortunately, the Adventurers League Administrators worked diligently with Wizards of the Coast to revamp these changes. While the rules for Season 9 may not be perfect, we consider them a vast improvement, and we feel they will allow us to put on a great convention in 2020. As such, we are pleased to announce that Role Call 3 will be April 17th, 18th, and 19th of 2020. The convention will once again be held at the Leighton Evatt American Legion Post in Collinsville, Illinois.

While the Season 9 rules have made things easier on the players, the changes imposed to the Convention Created Content (CCC) process in Season 8 made it more difficult for conventions to create the adventures they want. Because of this, we will not have any AL adventures in 2020 that are specifically written for Role Call. That said, we will still have a great selection of adventures to offer from other conventions, a D&D special, and (provided we get approval) a D&D Epic.

In addition, we will be working with the American Legion’s kitchen to offer counter-ready food for lunch on Saturday (the fish fry will still be on Friday night). This will likely be in the form of hot dogs and chips or something similar. The goal is to offer food that you can walk in and purchase without waiting. Last year, we simply had too many orders for the kitchen to deliver its food during our 1-hour lunch break, which caused problems with incorrect orders and late food delivery. We can’t make any promises, but our goal for 2020 is to simplify Saturday’s lunch, both for the American Legion kitchen and our attendees.

That’s it for now. Expect more information between now and the end of the year, and if you have any questions, just drop us a line at rolecallcon@swordfin.com.
