5/20 Update about Patron Runs and Golden Ticket Tokens 4 months 1 day ago #1

Update from the Workshop

With the sad news that Gen Con is cancelled (and Origins is delayed), I thought I should update True Dungeon fans on my thoughts – and a few changes coming our way.


(Team Token in 2007 inside the infamous Wizard Cup room)

Gaming Together:  The past few months have really driven home the amount of enjoyment that in-person gaming can bring to our lives.  There is something unique and magical about folks gaming together in a shared physical space.  I dearly miss that now.  I will never again take for granted the act of gathering around a table to enjoy a game with friends.  Perhaps that explains some of True Dungeon’s appeal.  There are plenty of D&D type digital games to play, but there is something special about experiencing those elements with real folks in an immersive environment.

Origins Game Fair:  This Con has been moved to October 7-11, 2020, but as of right now there is no agreement for us to attend.  We will update you when we know more.   
  
The Future & Other Cons:  Please do not worry about True Dungeon surviving this until conventions open again.  Over the past 17 years we have been responsible with the funding you have given us, and we can weather this storm.  We have three great new adventures (the S-series) completed, and they are ready to be presented when Cons open back up.  When will Cons open back up?  I wish I knew.  Right now, we are going with the assumption that PAX West, Gamehole Con and PAX South WILL happen, but we are prepared if they do not take place.  I’d like to give a special thank you to the TD Staff who have been very supportive of changes that needed to be made to allow TD to return in the future.

Patron Run at Origins and Golden Ticket Run Update:   Patrons of True Dungeon (big token supporters) were supposed to enjoy a special dungeon adventure at Origins Game Fair on June 19-20th, but with the postponement of Origins that is not possible.  Instead, we will run these Patrons through a virtual Zoom TD adventure online on those dates.  Next week, each Patron will receive an email with a special code they can use at www.td.events to get a Patron ticket to one adventure.  All ticket-holders will receive a special link that will allow them to join a 10-player TD group on Zoom that will hosted by me.  We are building a small adventure in the TD Workshop for Patrons to enjoy, but please keep expectations at a minimum due to technology restrictions.   More info about how the game structure will work will be emailed next week to Patrons (along with their codes).  A special token and Treasure Chips will be mailed to all players after the Patron runs.

Also, due to the cancellation of Gen Con we are making a special virtual event for all holders of 2020 Golden Ticket tokens.  Next week, a Golden Ticket token option will be added to our Transmuting page.  Players who received a random Golden Ticket token must use our Transmuting system to mail in the token.  This will get them a special online code (emailed to them) they can use at www.td.events to acquire a ticket to a special 15-20 minute virtual bonus experience on the Zoom platform.  We will not be running any TD adventures that night as we want to save the S-series adventures for real life. However, the virtual bonus experience should be a bit of fun.  These events will take place on the same weekend as they were originally scheduled but on a different night – on the night of Saturday, August 1st, 2020.  I will host a virtual bit of fun in a room constructed in the TD Workshop that will give Golden Ticket winners a chance to earn some extra nice swag.  Any earned swag and a bag full of nice tokens will be mailed to all Golden Ticket players after the events.

Thank you all for your years of support.  It is very much appreciated.  If you wish to purchase any Treasure Tokens, you can do so now HERE .

Awesome news, Jeff. I don’t have a horse in either race, but sounds like a good experience for those who do.

It seems there are still GTs not claimed yet. Is there still a chance token purchases will contain them? Not that
I have money to get any tokens right now, but I was just wondering.

Thank you Jeff! Great response - faster than I think anyone expected. Feel free to take more time to set these things up as needed (we're not exactly busy going to conventions at the moment!)

Golden tickets will be available (most likely) all the way up to the date of the GT Run. The economic shock has cut into token sales, so some should be available up to August 1st.

*laugh* if you do a mini-adventure for either the Golden Ticket or Patron Runs, I recommend using Zork. Yes, we'll all be eaten by Grues. The adventure practically writes itself :)

Awesome Jeff! Sounds like a great plan.

Yesterday I got to take part in a remote escape room via Zoom and had a blast. I'm sure TD will be even better :)

Thanks Jeff.

I knew you would come up with something innovative and fun to take care of us. You did not disappoint.

On a related note, anyone out there have experience with zoom? I may be the last person to not have installed it. I'm sure my laptop can accommodate it, I just haven't had to cross that bridge until now.

I've been using it for 20+ hours a week for the last 10 weeks, both as host and attendee. Happy to help you (or anyone else here).

Thanks for the info!

I did have one question though about Paton runs: what sort of deadline is there for orders being made from here out to join in on the Patron run? As in, if more big orders are made after codes have been sent out next week, are people still able to get into the Patron run who put in an order after that point?

Excellent.

Concerned about Origins, but I know you will do your best.

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend - Faramir
