I hope you are as thrilled as I am about all the fun coming in the next year or so. I get to do stuff now that I could never do at a game convention, and we have more time to built detailed sets. I know it won't be as immersive as the real thing, but I am hoping we are able to make something almost as good. I really like the idea that folks from overseas, or people who could not normally attend a Con, can finally play. And I love seeing you guys all being able to get together again...to swap stories and make new memories.

I for one am happy for the announcement and the VTD campaign thing.

I think an earlier warning on timing and price could have been helpful but we're also running out of time until the starting date.

I hope there's enough event spots for everyone who wants to attend, it sounds like great fun!

I'm thrilled. I've been looking forward to playing True Dungeon again ever since I did a few runs for the first time last year, and having all the conventions cancel was a bit of extra suck on top of an already disheartening year. Getting to play, even in a remote format, is a huge boost.

If possibly, it would be nice to get the AG code emails more in advance for tomorrow morning.

Lori is working on that now. It takes a bit of work to get the codes generated.

I appreciate everything Lori, yourself and the crew does to make this happen. I just sent an email to Lori with a reduced quantity of codes needed.

I am excited about VTD but my main concern is that GenCon does 3 main dungeons and about 700-800 runs, and with VTD we have 208 total slots for 2 dungeons so 312 for 3 dungeons is about 45% of the runs that we would have. I know there are 5 dungeons so 520 total runs but the runs per dungeon are what scare me the most. I'm a AG member so I get a bit of early access to tickets but there will be a lot of people that won't be able to find runs possibly. Would it be possible space/volunteer wise to run the dungeons multiple weekends before tearing down to build the next dungeon?

Depending on how the event goes on Gen Con weekend, we might be able to run the same exact event again during PAX West weekend in September. It is too early to speculate on that, however. There are a lot of factors in play. Thanks for your interest. I hope it happens.

Where can I find the announcement? I’m learning a lot on the forums I just didn’t receive a GenCon email or a true adventures, or anything about true dungeon other than shipped tokens Email.

I'm really worried about the number of runs. I hope we don't have people buying out multiple runs just for treasure before we get a chance to register.

We decided it was best to do a "soft opening" like lots of business do. We wanted to test the ticket system out live with a limited number of folks. We will make a big splash on Friday when tickets open fully.
