this doesn't really answer the original poster.  I've read the organized play page on the website and i'm still confused.  it has storylines and scenarios to go with them.  So is organized play a way to set up tournaments, or is it specific events based on the stories written.....or maybe some combination of the two?

It is store level events to get people playing MW.


I understand it is a half answer but it is the best answer I can give. It is up to the store top decide how they want the events to be run. At the stores I go to we do 90 min rounds Swiss promos got to the top 2 and 2 randoms.

Are the promos in the kit just altered versions of cards in the retail sets? If there's anything I hate it's a game with promos you can't buy, so people who don't go to conventions or live near an event can't get them!

just to clearify: Those not already part of a retail set will be released in future expansion. For example the first OP Kit gave us Minor Heal and Dispel from the Core Set and Galador whom I expect to be in the Druid part of the next expansion.
