5/29 Update - Virtual True Dungeon during Gen Con & GT Changes 1 month 1 week ago #25

I'm intrigued. It also might be a fun way to shuffle into some groups with forum players I never had the chance too. That being said, I'm not certain I have a great option for slides at home, particularly not a great option i could get on a webcam view easily, so I do worry about that. I hope we get a brief demo video to show what things will be like in a virtual TD. Cost may be an issue too now, silly home owning responsibilities...
~Meta: Don't worry, it is perfectly "safe" to follow the drunken dwarf into the dungeon!

Question:

Will virtual TD be ok for newbies? my play group has always wanted to play, but can never get slots. Was wondering if it was possible to start our TD experience with the virtual event or not?

I’m pretty sure it will be open to anyone that can manage to buy a ticket

Communication is the most important aspect of True Dungeon in my experience. I am extremely worried about how it will work with 10 people via zoom. I fear it could turn into the conference call from hell. Either all 10 people attempting to drive/control the NPC at once or perhaps worse. 1 person driving/control and the other 9 just watching without being able to prove much input.

Don't get me wrong I may try it because it is TD. But I think I am less excited about this that anyone else that has chimed in thus far.
You either discover a star or you don't. You arrogant punk.

I'm sure we'll get more information as time goes on. It will be a different experience, I'm sure. I'm intrigued to see how it turns out. Which cons does your group go to and how many people are there?

I had the same thoughts as you. I can easily see either scenario happening, especially in a more spontaneous group like mine. Either chaos as everyone tries to control the golem, or one person dominating.

Maybe TD can set it up so control of the golem passes to each player in a preset manner.

Worst case scenario, I guess it could be 2 hours of awkward zoom and laughs and we get our treasure/Completion token? :) I'll take that over the work one that about put me to sleep yesterday, haha.

Well you got paid for your almost nap time, this one you would be paying for, slightly less than $80 if that remains unchanged.

currently we are at 4-5 people. And we only go to gencon (that true dungeon is at).

I'll send you a PM so we don't clog up the thread.
