Has TD declared war on Disney? Seems like a bit of hubris, but I’m in.

Hmmm, me thinks the 2019 season may involve killing giant friendly Mice and talking cars...

From the e-mail newsletter:

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 two modules (“The Moongate Maze” and “Dancing Among Stones” each with a combat and puzzle-oriented version for a total of four modules) are based on the literary world of Patrick Rothfuss, and they give players a chance to visit the Fae and the Waystone Inn where they meet characters from the acclaimed novels. These adventures were previously presented at Gen Con 2017, Gamehole Con 2017 and PAX South 2018. The price of admission for either of these four adventures will be $48.

And Now the BIG News

The fifth 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 at Origins and Gen Con. The N-series is a group of three consecutive modules based around a Norse theme. The other two N-series modules (“N2 – Odin’s Haven” and “N3 – Vault of the All-Father”) will premier at Gen Con 2018.

“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:

• N1 – Astral Journey to the Bliss (1st shown at Origins) [3 puzzle rooms, 3 combat rooms & 1 "both" room]
• N2 – Odin’s Haven (premieres at Gen Con) [3 puzzle rooms, 3 combat rooms & 1 "both" room]
• N3 – Vault of the All-Father (premieres at Gen Con) [4 puzzle rooms & 3 combat rooms]

Because of Gen Con's larger Install Crew and the fact that installation begins Monday at Gen Con (and Tuesday at 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 to 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 for enhanced adventures (instead of the 8,000 tickets that were available in 2017). The price to play these two-hour enhanced adventures 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 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 event's level of immersion 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.

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 player immersion you will see this coming adventuring season.

Does "less immersion" simply mean non-themed waiting rooms between all of the actual combat and puzzle rooms?

Will Origins and GHC have lower quality puzzle and/or combat rooms?

Exciting news, but.... $78?

My TD group is going to dissolve at that price. :(

I honestly don't know what I'm going to do this year. It was a tough sell in the mid-$50's for 2 events, so $78 for 3 is ... not good.

I... am quite upset.

I hope you can work it out. Do you have an opportunity to attend any of the other TD events where the cost for runs is much lower?

I know for me I will often times subsidize ticket prices of people who go on runs with me in exchange for treasure draws. If you are a big token collector and have the funds that could be an option.

I live in Indianapolis, so this is the convention with no travel or hotel costs. :woohoo:

I'm just disappointed, because my expectations have gone from fully buying out two TD runs, to maybe running 1 or 2 events with 1 or 2 other friends.

I'm not enough into tokens that the treasure draws would be an incentive. I'm just a player who's done every adventure for the last 8 or 9 years, and is sad that my streak will end.

Perhaps you could defray some of your costs by selling some of your treasure pulls?
Maybe you could become one of the subsidized and still get the experience, perhaps meeting new teammates along the way?
