TOPIC: GenCon 2020 Looks like a Solo Trip this year.

GenCon 2020 Looks like a Solo Trip this year. 4 months 4 weeks ago #1

I need to find some new friends for Gencon. First Year I'm going while part of the VIG program alone. I joined the program because there was so many of us and now I stand alone.
The VIG is a huge price to cover on my own but I'm sure I can pull it off if I save up. I mean it's Gencon 2020. I have to go.
Plus I just can't give up the comfort of booking my room early. So the badge is whats getting me to go. At least for this one last time.
At least I don't have to buy a companion badge and book someone elses room like I've done for the past 10 years.. Never really liked that part but it was the deal.
I always thought that the Companion should be able to book their own room. I have had close friends I've know for years bail on my last minute for reasons and freak out at me when I ask for the One Night Stay cancelation fee. Even after warning them about said fees over and over again before they bought the badge.
So at least I don't have to deal with that this year.
Don't get me wrong. I would love my buddies to go and if they told be they were going. I would go thru the trouble of the extra badge and booking the room. Because lets face Gencon is better when you have a group of friends at your back.
So maybe I can join up with another group this year ...or maybe I might really enjoy the Solo trek and just PUG all my events. I really like sharing my TD tokens with plays that dont have. Those games really are the most fun.
But I really need to get into a nightmare run this year at some time. Even if my Paladin has grown soft around the middle :laugh:

Watch for Team Synergy run announcements. We do have a core group of players, but almost invariably have some open spots. Our concept of “membership” is pretty fluid.

I’ll also put in a plug for Team Token. Trent is a good guy and fun to run with.
D&D teaches all the important lessons in life - the low blow, the cheap shot, the back stab, the double cross. - Jerry Marsischky

Let them trap us. We have our swords. - Elric of Melnibone.

You try to get them to play the game, but all they want to do is play the rules. - Ardak Kumerian

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

Just what I'm looking for. Plus I'm definitely going to Origins this year. Picked it over Pax South. Which I went to last year. So maybe it can work out for both cons.

Heya Powers209! I second Harlax's comments (thanks for the kind words!). Watch the forums for runs put together by different groups. There are many of us who set up runs that have regulars, but everyone loves to also invite anyone who's a fan of True Dungeon and having fun.

I feel that. One of my friends has VIG and I go as his companion. It comes with huge benefits and huge headaches. It was alway herding cats trying to get things organized and, with a few exceptions, always felt a little taken for granted. He and I talked and we're dropping this year. I'll be going to GC as a TD Volunteer, hopefully. I'm sure this will create some interesting scheduling nuances for our group as well, thought I plan to get most of my runs done at Origins.

The DDA will be doing runs as well, mainly nightmare. So keep on the look out right after tickets happen for us to post to fill some slots :)
