Upcoming Events


A BIG Change Coming to

Origins, Gen Con and Beyond

True Dungeon is pleased to announce exciting new plans for the 2018-2019 adventure season. The information presented below is different than released earlier this year, so please read this update carefully.

Origins 2018

The 2018-2019 adventure season will start at Origins Game Fair 2018 in June with the presentation of five different adventures. The first four modules (“The Moongate Maze” and “Dancing Among Stones” each with a combat and puzzle-oriented version) are based on the literary world of Patrick Rothfuss and give players a chance to visit the Fae and the Waystone Inn where they meet characters from his acclaimed novels. These adventures were previously presented at Gen Con 2017, Gamehole Con 2017 and PAX South 2018. The price of admission for any Rothfuss-themed adventure will be $48.

The five Origins module (“N1 - Astral Journey to the Bliss”) will be premiering at Origins Game Fair 2018, and it will represent the first of three completely new N-series modules debuting in 2018. The other two N-series modules (“N2 – Odin’s Haven” and “N3 – Vault of the All-Father”) will premier at Gen Con 2018. The N-series is a group of three consecutive modules based around a Norse theme.

“N1 – Astral Journey to the Bliss” (and the entire N-series) will mark a new era in True Dungeon history. Starting with the N1 module, all future True Dungeon adventures will be presented with a larger event footprint than ever before. The quality of the sets, props, costumes and animatronics will be at the level that was achieved with the “Dancing Among Stones” adventure presented at Gen Con 2017. The non-themed “holding areas” between rooms have been replaced with well-themed spaces designed to immerse players in the adventure while they await entry into the next room. The cost to play this two-hour adventure at Origins will be $58.

Gen Con 2018

Gen Con will see the presentation of the entire three-part N-series of modules. They include:

N1Astral Journey to the Bliss (previously presented at Origins)
N2Odin’s Haven (premieres at Gen Con)
N3Vault of the All-Father (premieres at Gen Con)

Because installation begins Monday at Gen Con (and Tuesday at all other shows), all three adventures presented at Gen Con will have an improved look and feel not seen at any other convention. The extra time will be used to add additional set and prop pieces – as well as fine-tune light, sound and special effect levels.

True Dungeon has been offering four adventures at Gen Con in recent years, so this new presentation paradigm of larger and better-quality events will see a reduction in the number of adventures due to space constraints. Thus, a total of 6,000 tickets will be available at Gen Con (instead of the 8,000 available in 2017). The price to play this two-hour adventure at Gen Con will be $78.


New Gen Con Event!  True Dungeon: First Quest

An exciting four-room, 1.5 hour interactive experience serves as a great introduction to the True Dungeon game. This adventure features the best monsters and puzzles from True Dungeon's past, and it includes a free pack of tokens to use in the game (and no other tokens can be used during this adventure). Victorious players will be awarded one Treasure Token from a random treasure generator and players 4th-level and lower will receive 500 experience points. The cost of admission for this 1.5 hour event is $38.

True Grind and the TD 101 seminars will return to Gen Con, too.

Gamehole Con 2018

We will present the same entire N-series modules at Gamehole Con 2018 that we are presenting at Gen Con 2018. Due to time constraints for installation, the level of immersiveness of the event will be the same as presented with the N1 module at Origins 2018. The tickets will require a $58 level of support.

PAX South 2019

We are in the process of setting up the details of this show with the fine folks at PAX South. We will seek to present the same three-adventure presentation seen at Gamehole Con 2018 with the same level of immersiveness and ticket price ($58). However, until a final agreement is reached, these details are not finalized.

Note About Experience Points

Experience Points gained during the 2018-2019 adventuring season can be earned only once from each of these three new Norse (N-series) adventures regardless of where they are played. For example, a player will only get XP credit for the furthest room they reach during multiple runs of the N1 module even if they play N1 at more than one convention.

Thank you for your amazing support of our event over the past 15 years. Your funding has allowed us to continually enhance the quality of True Dungeon, and we look forward to the big leap in immersiveness we will see this coming adventuring season.
