Given that N1 debuted at Origins last year, I would find it highly unlikely that it would be there.

I can absolutely see N2, N3 and 'new-series letter' 1.

Time will tell.

TD at GenCon VS Origins (and other cons) 3 years 10 months ago #14

If it isn't already, I have a sense Origins will become a much better experience. You can transmute much more easily. Everything not TD related is closer. You don't have to fight for runs as much.

But, it depends a bit on what sort of "energy" you prefer. Gen Con is hectic in ways the other aren't. Maybe your group isn't rushing around from one thing to another, but a lot of other players are. We did TD at GC this year after: 12 hours of RPGs, 8 hours of RPG, 4 hours of LARP + 5 hours of special event. We are tired, possibly cranky. Meanwhile, GHC did 7 runs of TD and TG and it was rather chill as even a back to back was still playing the same game in the same area. If you like intense with more discovery with filled out parties, then GC may be better.

I look forward to Origins as an opportunity to get some more runs in of N2 and N3 (do hope N1 is an option though I prefer N2 and N3) with a much less frenetic vibe and I don't mind if the parties have fewer than 10 players. It is hard to feel the same, though, with having already done dungeons with not having done them.

On a more mechanical note, I thought one of the dungeons improved massively between GC and GHC last year where the other got much worse. Didn't do Moongate nor Dancing at Origins so don't know whether I would have enjoyed any of the four possibilities more at Origins.
