I played in the starter set with my GM but he didn't make us fill out chronicle sheets. I want to play in a 5th level adventure this weekend but I don't have a 5th level character. Can I use my existing character?
Quote from the D&D ADVENTURERS LEAGUE PLAYER’S GUIDE 3.0 Page 8:
D&D Adventurers League play has been developed to promote in-person, public play with the D&D tabletop roleplaying game. Some opportunities exist for players participating at home or privately online to get involved in the D&D Adventurers League. You can:
- Purchase and play Lost Mine of Phandelver
- Purchase and play the storyline season’s adventure product (for example, Out of the Abyss)
Simply record your play using an adventure logsheet as you would any other public game. Your experience and rewards earned are valid for public D&D Adventurers League play.
I can think of two ways that might work:
- Bring the Starter Set cleric and play him as 5th level via the character sheet with the magic items he got (the Spider Staff) and go from there.
- Treat it like I only got to 4th level with the character, respec him as a slightly different cleric that I want to play, have a GM sign off on his first official session, and move on from there. Then use the free level 4 to level 5 level up option.
Are either of these league-legal without an adventure log sheet? Can I just get a GM to sign off on them the first time I play? Am I right that I can keep the Spider Staff in either case?
