What is Living Forgotten Realms?
Living Forgotten Realms (or LFR for short) is a regionalized organized play Living campaign, and the first to utilize the new 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons rules. Players create characters and assign them to a specific region set in the Forgotten Realms. Characters can be played in any LFR adventure that supports their levels of play, anywhere. All non-special LFR adventures will be available for play no matter where you live in the world. As your character plays adventures, it earns experience points, gold, and magic items which stay with you from game to game. There are dozens of unique adventures each year!
What Do I Need to Play?
In order to participate in the Living Forgotten Realms campaign, you’ll need the same things you’d need for any other D&D game (Player’s Handbook, dice, character sheet), plus a few other things.
You’ll need to get an RPGA/DCI number to play, as this will track your play officially. You can obtain an RPGA/DCI number when you attend your first Living Forgotten Realms event, or check out the information posted over at Customer Service (see the link below).
You’ll need to print out your first adventure log and advancement tracker. Both of those documents can be found in the RPGA Character Creation Guide, available on the Living Forgotten Realms website.
You might also want to have a copy of the Forgotten Realms Player’s Guide and have a subscription to D&D Insider. Both of these introduce tons of new options for your character! Grab a Forgotten Realms Player's Guide at your local gaming shop and sign up for D&D Insider at wizards.com/insider.

What my group(s) enjoyed about 5-1 was not necessarily the small number of combats in the module, it was the importance of each combat in relation to the story and how each combat led to the completion of the adventures objective. In fact, the last... more
