The Arcana Rising Saga consists of two story arcs. The first is the Adventure Saga and the second is the Convention Saga. The Adventure Saga will be released monthly (starting in April 2016) and will consist of 5 adventures. These adventures will be released on the Dungeon Masters Guild marketplace. The adventures do not have to be played in direct succession since there’s not enough XP to get you from AR01-AR05, you’ll need to supplement with other adventures,spread out the AR adventures and include them when they make most sense in your campaign.
The Convention Saga (AR06-AR10) will premiere all at once at the Arcana Rising convention during the weekend of November 2-6th, 2016. After they premiere they’ll be released on the Dungeon Master’s Guild for general purchase.
