Celebrating our 20th anniversary, True Dungeon is thrilled to return to Gen Con with at least three amazing adventures which feature immersive sets, interactive props, incredible costumes and automatronic monsters.  These unparalleled experiences will transport players to three different realms where the immersion continues even in the hallways between the rooms.

"Darkhold Keep” - Your party must end a deadly haunting to cleanse a vengeful spirit from Darkhold Keep.

"Crimson Isle” - This pirate-themed adventure tasks your group with ending a deadly threat to the innocents of Ebony Bay.

Third Adventure  To be announced

All adventures come complete with a free 10-pack of Treasure Tokens, a limited-edition Participation token and at least three draws from our random Treasure Generators.

  

 

2022 Event Details
 

FIVE Levels of Challenge
Non-lethal: If all players in the group agree, the party can tell their Coach they want to play their adventure on the "non-lethal" challenge rating. This is designed for people who just want to enjoy the True Dungeon adventure without having to worry about their character dying. Awarded XP for this challenge level is 650 XP.

Normal: By default, the party will play their adventure on the Normal challenge level -- characters can die on this difficulty, but a good party can emerge victorious with only basic equipment as long as they work well together and think on their feet. If this challenge is too much (or insufficient) then other levels are available. Awarded XP for this challenge level is 650 + 50/room reached.

Hardcore:  If all players in the group agree, the players can tell their Coach they want to play their adventure on the "Hardore" challenge rating. This is for people who have some TD experience and at least 3 bags of tokens. Awarded XP for this challenge level is 1650 + 50/room reached.

Nightmare: If all players in the group agree, the players can tell their Coach they want to play their adventure on the "Nightmare" challenge rating. This is for people who have lots of experience, moxie and/or tokens. THIS IS A VERY DIFFICULT EVENT.  Awarded XP for this challenge level is 1650 + 50/room reached.

Epic: If all players in the group agree, the players can tell their Coach they want to play their adventure on the "Epic" challenge rating. This turns the difficulty up to 11. All bets are off whan you play Epic. Assume your character will die! Awarded XP for this challenge level is 1650 + 50/room reached.

Experience Points Earned
Players receive Experience Points (XP) for playing TD adventures and gain various benefits for achieving higher levels. Some TD veterans are now 10th level. The amount of XP earned is based on the challenge rating of the adventure as well as how many rooms your character makes it to alive. (Your character need not survive the entire adventure to get max XP, your character just needs to enter the final room alive.)

Non-lethal = 650 XP
Normal = 650 XP + 50 XP/room
Hardcore= 1650 XP + 50 XP/room
Nightmare = 1650 XP + 50 XP/room
Epic = 1650 XP + 50 XP/room

If a person plays the same adventure more than once, they receive the highest XP earned in all runs of that particular adventure. E.g., if someone plays an adventure twice, once at the Normal level and once on Nightmare level, that player receives XP for the Nightmare adventure only. (I.e., the XP awards for the same adventure don’t stack.) Note that when there are two versions of the same adventure (puzzle or comabt), each adventure is considered the same adventure for XP purposes because they are so similar. The highest XP available for Gen Con Indy 2022 is 6,000 XP. To earn all that, the player would need to make it to the final room of all three unique adventures on Hardcore, Nightmare, or Epic difficulty.
 

Transmuting
To save time and hassle with converting your tokens, we offer a location where you can exchange for 2022 and 2023 transmuted tokens right there on the spot. There is no charge to use this service and it's available to all token collectors.

Before coming to the transmuting room, please use this form to prepare your transmute order. It contains the order form that you need to date & sign before turning in, recipe checklists you need to include, and slips to insert in the token bags you turn in. Please have all your tokens organized and all paperwork completed before coming to the transmuting room. During peak times, there may be a line at the door. Having all your stuff prepared ahead of time helps us to help you and your fellow collectors get through the line as quickly as possible.

We are not able to convert standard tokens into Trade items or Reserve bars at Gen Con.

The Transmuting Room is open during these hours:

  • Thursday:
    • 8:00 am to Noon
    • 3:30 pm to 7:00 pm
  • Friday:
    • 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
    • 3:30 pm to 8:00 pm
  • Saturday:
    • 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
    • 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm

 

Participation Tokens
As stated earlier, players earn a cool, limited edition participation token just for playing a TD adventure. There were six unique tokens available at Gen Con 2022. The each of the three adventures had its own set of participation tokens--one for Normal/Non-Lethal and another for Hardcore/Nightmare/Epic. For the two-hour adventures, anyone playing on the "Non-lethal" setting received the Normal participation token, but no Survival button could be earned. Participation tokens for Gen Con 2023 will be announced closer to the event.
