Where do you actually get the modules to run? I went to an index site and for some of the mods it told me where to get them but not all. Is there a repository for the mods somewhere.

Benn there got those but what i meant was like the pdf of the module itself unless people have built it into the campaigns.

You have to sanction them from Wizards of the Coast. In order to sanction private events you have to pass the DMing test.

By the way, these were mentioned elsewhere, but for the sake of an info compendium:

A New Direction for LFR - HUGE, MAJOR CHANGES - PLEASE READ!

where to comment


And the new CCG is out and takes effect June 22nd, see the link in the first post.

It's not very intuitive but you actually have to sanction your event FIRST then you get the link to download the materials for the module. Which is a shame if you wanted to actually read up on the module and browse a few before deciding which you might want to run. There is however a decent listing of the LFR modules and descriptions if you google 'List of LFR modules', but of course that just gives a broad overview.

This place has the summaries in one place along with player and DM reviews http://gamerclubhouse.com/Module.aspx

Beware that that kind of thing can get your account flagged and your ability to sanction events removed.

Nope once you sign in, go to the judge centre, it has loads of info there about how t go about it. :-)

You can freely use the D&D compendium/rulebooks etc.

Once you sanction the event you should be able to download the module from the My Events page. Then you run the module, collect the players' RPGA numbers, answer relevent survey questions, then report the event in the Event Reporting page.

Just an interesting tidbit that I thought was worth sharing. This is from WotC when I sent an email about DMing for private games.

Quote:
We want to let you know about a recent change to our online event system. Due to this change, home-only organizers will not be able to request DCI/RPGA membership cards online. To host new players in your home events, they will first need to obtain a membership card from WPN location or WPN-supported convention. To find a nearby WPN location, please use our Store and Event locator at http://ww2.wizards.com/StoreAndEventLocator.

We're also changing the DM Rewards Program; these changes will be announced later this month.

Yeah it's kind of lame. I think Xalcairn still has a stack of DCI membership cards for now though.
