DM certification and ranks on Neverwinter Connections

Carlo / Apr 17, 2019
A new feature of the site is Dungeon Master (DM) certification and ranks. It is intended to provide recognition for people who choose to DM using the site as a platform for scheduling their games, as well as help reward new DMs for taking the plunge into DMing.

Three "ranks" will now be visible for DMs on their member profiles:
  • Certified DM (one campaign session/module successfully completed)
  • Experienced DM (5 sessions/modules completed)
  • Veteran DM (10+ sessions/modules completed)
Both persistent world (PW)-hosted DM'd sessions and individual DM's campaigns/modules are eligible. That means DMs on PWs who schedule their regular campaign-type sessions on the NWC events calendar can receive credit, as well as individual DMs who are running their own campaigns or DM'ing a "one-shot" module.

For a scheduled session/module to be recognized, the DM and player roster should be listed on the Neverwinter Connections events calendar. Players who attend should then post in the comments section after they complete the session, to validate that it in fact occurred. A link to the event(s) should then be sent to site admin by the DM.

Co-DMing a session can count for certification, as long as each DM actually did significant DMing in the game.

Grandfathering certifications for DMs who were active on the former NWC site (2002-2012) will be done on request. If necessary, proof of previously running DM'd games on the old NWC site can be provided via a Wayback Machine profile link. (For example: Carlo One's old NWC profile.)

Additional details and background are on the NWC DM forum:
