Forums: Helping Hand > Adventurers League Citations

Use the following template for a nicely presented post:

Have we decided how to handle citation templates from the Adventurer's League Expeditions?
~ Lhynard (talk) 15:06, November 25, 2015 (UTC)


How canon is that? Allowable? Are these web-based PDFs or what? Many questions.
Moviesign (talk) 16:22, November 25, 2015 (UTC)


Many questions here also. From what I can tell, they are pdf-only documents available only to DMs who are a part of the League. User:Unknown user 11 has been using them as sources lately.
~ Lhynard (talk) 16:42, November 25, 2015 (UTC)


The adventures are a series of hour long adventure sessions... sort of like if you took Hoard of the Dragon Queen and made each chapter into one adventure... they have numbers like DDEX03-01 Harried in Hillsfar... you have to have a password to play them and they are all pdfs... these are official Wizards of the Coast games played at conventions: http://dndadventurersleague.org/storyline-seasons/rage-of-demons/rage-of-demons-adventures/... hope this helps :)

How do we go about citing them though?
~ Lhynard (talk) 17:00, November 25, 2015 (UTC)


Is the material canon to FR? I presume it is, but it would be nice to know for sure. I can whip up a citation template if you give me the fields to include. Would {{Cite web}} work if I added a field for the "DDEX03-01"? What would you call it? Can we get a URL that is meaningful for folks without a password?

Technically, I believe only specific users can view these pdfs (a la passwords)... http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/events/adventurers-league-resources... It IS canon... Robert Adducci is the AL Manager at Wizards of the Coast...

I've been adding a few of the pdf so far and made an earlier forum post about using the {{Cite digital book}} template as compromise. I think more pdf materials will emerge over time and it would be good to have way of referencing them properly (especially when we are getting 30-60 page adventures).

How about this:
{{Cite DDAL
| url         = http://media.wizards.com/2015/downloads/dnd/ALPGv3.pdf
| title       = Adventurers League Player's Guide

| pages       = {{{1|1-24}}}
}}

which would render something like
