On average, how long do sessions tend to last in Adventurers League organized play for D&D 5e?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @PremierBromanov It can almost certainly be answered objectively. It might require a bit a data collection though. \$\endgroup\$ – NeutralVax Aug 30 at 23:06

Most sessions are specifically timed to last about 2 hours (exception is longer sessions, typically scheduled on weekends, that tend to last about 4 hours). Some campaigns and modules are too long to fit in this time frame, in which case they would be broken up into multiple parts so each part can be completed in about two hours.

How long the session actually takes depends a lot on the speed of the DM and players, so it can vary a lot, but generally the modules are written with the idea that they can be completed in a 2-hour time frame.

    \$\begingroup\$ Your post would be improved if you could link to, or cite, an official source that supported your statement. Adventurer's League adventure writing guidelines, GM guidelines, or other similar source would be idea. \$\endgroup\$ – ValhallaGH Sep 1 at 21:31
  • \$\begingroup\$ As I'm only a player in AL, not a DM or an organizer, I'm only speaking from my personal experience; I don't have access to the materials that would "prove" this is the case but this is fairly common knowledge I'm sure could be substantiated by talking to any DM or organizer in AL, or by referring to materials that state this. I was just trying to answer the question as best I could based on my knowledge and experience, but if anyone wants to cite something more authoritative, then I'd certainly have no objection to them doing so. \$\endgroup\$ – Troodon Sep 1 at 21:43

    \$\begingroup\$ Just knowing if you've been told this by a GM, or if you've noticed this pattern for multiple gms or multiple organization would be pretty good. \$\endgroup\$ – 3C273 Sep 2 at 3:41
