''Dungeons And Dragons: Encounters'' or ''D&D Encounters'', according to the WizardsOfTheCoast website, is a series of DungeonsAndDragons scenarios sent out by WoTC to your local gaming store. The sessions are pre-determined so that each week, anyone can show up to any session and start playing with a character of the appropriate level, or even select a pre-generated character that comes packaged with the module. Each session is pre-planned to include at least one battle and last no more than one or two hours, allowing people with busy schedules to play when they can. Naturally, WoTC's attempts to [[{{ItsPopularNowItSucks}} reach out to casual players]] tend to polarize its already BrokenBase.
Each campaign or "season" is broken up into chapters, each of which is further broken up in to "sessions."
