TOPIC: Important Update! The Astral Adventure is now NEW

Important Update! The Astral Adventure is now NEW 2 years 11 months ago #1

We just decided today to make the Astral adventure at Origins a brand new adventure -- and NOT a "best of" adventure as previously detailed. All the rooms will be brand new -- and pretty dang cool. XP is available for this adventure, so if you want to get max XP you need to play this adventure at either Origins or Gamehole Con (and other Cons we do other than Gen Con). Due to space restrictions at Gen Con we will not be able to present this adventure there at Gen Con. The Astral adventure is a prequel to the adventures seen at Gen Con, and it tells the story of how the party got from the Standing Stones outside the Waystone Inn to the edge of the Bliss. This Astral adventure will not have a puzzle or combat version...just one version with 4 combat and 3 puzzle rooms.

N1 is also at Gen Con!

I am sorry for the late decision here. It is a very long story. Thanks for your patience and support. The great news is that there will be THREE new concurrent adventures this year. Hopefully you can make it to Origins, Gamehole Con or PAX South (if we do PAX South again).

exciting news for the all new dungeon part.

Quite a few people may feel bummed by the EXP news...

Sweet!!! Sounds great! As for the XP I have no problem with this. At my game table if you want XP then you need to show up, if not the game still goes on. You want TD XP...then make it to a Con. If not no biggie, the world will not end.

Sounds cool!

Full XP for new dungeons is the right thing to do.

I'm a bit bummed because I know I would love the astral setting but I don't think I'll make it.

Maybe PAX South...

Yeah... there was a lot of discussion about the XP, but this is the only way to go. TD is growing and changes must come.

The biggest benefit goes to the newer players who make more cons. They gain player levels and associated perks quicker.

To a lesser extent, those who have been around a moderate amount of time, and I count myself there, also see some benefit as those higher levels take longer and longer to reach, and this helps.

The downside as I see it is for those who have been playing since day one, and have to travel a long way. If I were one of the three players currently at the top of the “Top Players” list, I imagine watching someone else leapfrog in front of me would be a bitter pill.

Not suggesting they’re immature enough to rage-quit over it, and I’m not sure what can be done about it. The times, they are a-changin’.

But, in my mind, Raven, Arcbat, and Candace (and in spite of our differences of opinion, Mike Steele is a close fourth) will always be the top players, regardless of what the numbers may say in a few years.

There should be a similar “Top Volunteers” list. (I’d be on it, but waaay down there.) I’m not suggesting any perks, but without vols there would be no players at all. But that’s off topic.

Regardless, :woohoo: on new adventure.
