Gearing up for Winter 2020!

Hello, DU Dragons! We hope you’re already enjoying a restful and rejuvenating winter break! We at DUDAD HQ have certainly been enjoying winding down from Fall Quarter’s adventures with a cozy apple cider and a leftover turkey leg at the town’s local tavern and inn.

A couple quick updates for our upcoming Winter Quarter of DUDAD!

Upcoming Quarter

  • Priority registration for Winter 2020 is over, but don’t despair! You can still sign up for your upcoming adventure! Hurry though, because we’re out of priority territory, you’ll be slotted on a first-come, first-serve basis, and spots fill fast!
  • If you’ve already signed up, great news! The Placement Page has been updated! Head on over and check out who you’re playing with!

Design Contest 2020!

CALLING ALL CREATIVE PEOPLE! (In other words, all of DUDAD) We’re holding a new design contest! Here’s what we need:

  • Design a shirt for DUDAD!
  • Designs must abide by DU requirements, keep it clean and friendly please!
  • Include ‘DUDAD’ or ‘DU Dungeons & Dragons Club’ somewhere on your design!
  • Send a PNG or JPEG to the DUDAD exec email by January 16th at 11:59pm! (That’s Thursday, week 2 of Winter Quarter).
  • DUDAD members will vote on their favorite design! First place will be printed on T-shirts, second place will be on stickers!

T-shirts and stickers from both this upcoming contest as well as the winners from our last design contest will be available to order once the contest is closed and winning designs are selected. Did we mention they’ll be FREE? That’s right, we’ll be able to get your t-shirts to you!

In order to do that though, we’ll need designs, so get creative!

We miss you all! We’ll see you winter quarter!

Announcing Acquisitions Incorporated

As we hope you all know, DUDAD has a club D&D Beyond account that every member has access to! What can you do on the D&D Beyond account, exactly? Well for one thing you can access incredible resources such as the newest book in our collection, Acquisitions Incorporated!

Here’s the official description:

Explore a wealth of peril and personalities for the world’s greatest roleplaying game.

When you’re just starting out in the adventuring business, it might be nice to have a leg up. It can be a big help to have access to the powerful artifacts, expertise, and jobs that Acquisitions Incorporated (Acq Inc) has to offer a new franchise. Join Omin Dran, Jim Darkmagic, and Viari like never before with the new Acquisitions Incorporated campaign book for Dungeons & Dragons!

Set yourself up for success when pursuing your own fantasy-business endeavors, using all the ingredients you need to include Acquisitions Incorporated in your D&D campaign, to establish your own franchise, and take on specialized roles therein. Plus, there are always openings coming available… Just try not to think about why.” (dnd.wizards.com)

Announcing Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus


Have you heard the news? The newest D&D adventure book, Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus, was released on Tuesday! Our Exec Team was so excited about this release that we bought the book at our latest Exec meeting!

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is baldurs_gate_descent_into_avernus_cover.png

As many of you (hopefully) know, DUDAD has a shared D&D Beyond account, as well as other resources that members of our club can access. This means that any of our club members have access to this new adventure along with a ton of other adventure books and manuals!

Our Resources page is currently under construction, so we wanted to remind you all of just some of the resources available to club members:

  • Baluder’s Gate: Descent into Avernus (New!!!)
  • The Player’s Handbook
  • The Dungeon Master’s Guide
  • More Adventure Books
  • Map Making with Inkarnate
  • A Homebrew Compendium (that you can add to!)

We know what you’re thinking, how do you get access to Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus and all of the other club resources? Lucky for you it’s simple! DUDAD club members should email the Exec Team requesting access to club resources and we’ll send you instructions on how to access the D&D Beyond account, the Inkarnate account, and our Homebrew Compendium! This comes at no extra cost to members, so please don’t hesitate to email your requests to du.dad.exec@gmail.com.

Happy Adventuring!
