How To Play

View the Player's Handbook here .

 

How will you help your party make it through this adventure alive? 

Will you cleave your foes with your +1 Longsword?  Will you command the forces of the arcane against your party's foes?  Will you bolster your party with a rousing tune? Or will you use healing spells to cure their wounds?

The cool design of True Dungeon is that the degree of success you have with your chosen action is not done by a simple dice roll. Rather, every character class has a special, real world test that they must perform in order to successfully attack, cast a spell, or pick a lock.

Character Class Cards

There are 12 different classes to choose from in True Dungeon. Each player must play a different class. Once character classes are picked, each player receives a full-color printed character class card that they use throughout the adventure. Players get to keep the card as a souvenir.

Most players use the 4th level player Character Cards, but there are magic items that can boost a character to 5th level.  Above is what the 5th level Elf Wizard Card looks like. You can see all the Character Card images in the Resources section HERE.

You don't roll dice in True Dungeon.  It is up to you to succeed!

When you attack a monster in a True Dungeon event you don't roll a d20 as is the case in many tabletop role playing games. Rather, instead of luck controlling the fate of your attack, the result of the swing is determined by your hand and eye coordination!

In the world of True Dungeon, magic plays an important role. Wizards are masters of devastating arcane power which they can use to cause massive damage to terrible foes! Clerics, with their divine healing and curative abilities, are often the only thing standing between a fellow adventurer and certain death. Druids commune with nature to not only to bring forth healing, but to command the elements themselves as mighty weapons.

Bards' magic is varied and practical, but in addition, they can inspire their companions through their magical gifts of music and song as well as offer useful information on how to defect a monster.

Magic occurs in two forms within the dungeon. The classes above have spells at their command which they may cast at any time. When casting these spells, each class performs a task unique to them in order to display their prowess and maximize the effectiveness of their magic. Also, some characters may use scrolls. Scrolls are treasure tokens that are consumed upon use.

In addition to combat and class skills, there are many other challenges that await players in True Dungeon. Most of these challenges take the form of puzzles and creative problem solving tasks. There are also physical challenges such as walking a balance beam or dodging a foam dart.

Every player receives at least three Treasure Chips at the conclusion of their adventure. In the Epilogue Area, a Treasure Chip can be exchanged for a random pull from the Treasure Generator.

Tokens are never hidden inside the adventure, so don't waste your time (or damage the sets) looking for tokens.

In addition to Treasure Chips, players receive Experience Points (XP) at the end of their adventure. Your XP accumulates over time, just like in D&D, eventually letting YOU (not your character) gain levels! With higher levels come special abilities and privileges. You can track your XP by clicking the "Xth Level Player" link in the upper left of every page on this site.

XP Stacking & Post-Adventure Rewards  

Earning Player XP: The Player XP you earn depends on the challenge rating of the adventure you ran.

  • Non-Lethal: 650 (no per room bonus)
  • Normal: 650 + 50 per room entered
  • Hardcore: 1,650 + 50 per room entered
  • Nightmare: 1,650 + 50 per room entered (same as Hardcore)
  • Epic: 1,650 + 50 per room entered (same as Hardcore)

Your character does not need to survive the room to earn Player XP, your character merely needs to enter the room alive to earn XP for that room. E.g., if your character died in room 7 (the final room), you would still receive full XP for that adventure because your character entered the room alive.
 
Stacking Player XP: You earn Player XP based on the highest challenge level you ran. E.g., if you survived Dancing Among Stones on Normal, you would earn 1,000 XP. But if you later survived Dancing Among Stones on Hardcore (or Nightmare or Epic, since they earn the same XP), you would earn a total of 2,000 XP--not 3,000. Repeating the same dungeon on the same difficulty does not earn additional XP--unless your character entered additional rooms in the adventure. E.g., if your first attempt at running Dancing Among Stones on Hardcore resulted in your character dying in room 6, you would earn 1,950 XP. But if you later ran Dancing Among Stones on Hardcore (or Nightmare/Epic) and made it to room 7--whether your character survived or not--you would earn a total of 2,000 for that adventure, thus making up the 50 XP deficit from your first run. Once you reach the XP cap of a particular adventure, playing that same adventure does not earn you any additional XP.

For the purposes of calculating XP, combat and puzzle versions as well as "B" or "C" versions of the same-named adventure count as the same adventure. E.g., surviving both the puzzle and combat versions of Dancing Among Stones on Hardcore (or Nightmare/Epic) would earn a total of 2,000 XP--not 2,000 each. The same-named adventure run at different conventions or VTD events counts as a single adventure for XP purposes. E.g., running Virtual Prancing Around Rocks A and Virtual Prancing Around Rocks B counts as one adventure. If you run the same-named adventure on different challenge levels at different conventions, you earn Player XP for the highest level you ran. E.g., in you survived Dancing Among Stones on Normal at Gen Con and then later survived Dancing Among Stones on Hardcore (or Nightmare/Epic) at Gamehole Con, you would earn a total of 2,000 XP for that adventure. 
 
Player Level vs. Character Level: Your player level has absolutely nothing to do with your character’s level and vice versa. Attaining 5th-level as a player does not mean you automatically play a 5th-level character. Only tokens can increase your character’s level. Similarly, having tokens that allow you to play a 5th-level character does not entitle you to 5th-level player benefits. 

Completion Tokens: Non-Lethal and Normal adventurers receive an Uncommon completion token. Hardcore adventurers receive a Rare completion token. Nightmare or Epic adventurers receive both the Uncommon and Rare completion tokens.

How To Claim XP Rewards

Q: Now that my XP has been entered, how do I get my stuff?
A: It's as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Go to the TD Store. (The link is at the top of this page or just click here.)
  2. Find the item you're now qualified for and click its [Add to cart] button.
  3. Check out.

There is a small shipping fee, but you're more than welcome to claim your Level Reward with another purchase or a Transmute order. They'll all be shipped to you together for the one shipping charge.

Q: Can I get my Level Reward shipped with another person's Level Reward so we don't have to pay the shipping fee twice?
A: Yes! When more than one person wants to combine shipping for a Level Reward, this is how to do it:

  1. Before anyone places any order, the players need to determine who the items will be shipped to. We'll refer to the person who will receive all the items as the Primary.
  2. Each player places their own order for the item(s) they need--preferably at nearly the same time.
  3. Every non-Primary player needs to put in the Notes field that they would like their order to be shipped to the Primary. Be certain to include the Primary's name and mailing address. The non-Primary players don't all have to email us, simply putting it in the Notes field is fine.
    The Primary cannot just say, "Ship all these other orders to me."
  4. When we ship the items, we refund all but the Primary's shipping charges.

We ask folks to do it this way so our order system knows when a person has claimed their Level Reward.

The 2022 Treasure Tokens are HERE!

True Adventures, Ltd. is feeling incredibly lucky to announce that our shipment of the 2022 Treasure Tokens arrived about two months early! Due to well-known port-congestion issues, we had expected our shipment would languish for the typical 2-3 months in port as is common now. Somehow our container was quickly unloaded directly on to a train (instead of sitting in a railyard for two months), and that train left for St. Louis the next day!

Pre-Order Specials Stay in Place - You can still qualify for pre-order bonus items if you order tokens by the previously announced date. If you order before Jan. 17th, 2022, you still qualify for some free Treasure Chips.

Transmuting Starts Jan. 3rd - Due to the early arrival of the tokens, the 2022 Transmute tokens will appear on the Transmute page (and PDF form) starting January 3rd, 2022.

-----

Tokens have been a very popular component of True Dungeon since they were introduced at Gen Con So Cal in 2003. Tokens were added so players could experience one of the most interesting and fun parts of adventuring--getting treasure! Treasure Tokens are heavy, and combined with their "gold" color, they have the weight and appearance of a gold piece. Our tokens are VERY durable, water-resistant, and have a special clear laminate that protects the full-color image quite well. Nearly all tokens feature the current year embossed on the back to deter counterfeiting.

The tokens that come in a standard ten-pack are organized into Common, Uncommon, Rare and Ultra Rare rarity groups. Each pack of Treasure Tokens contains:

  • Seven random Common tokens*
  • Two random Uncommon tokens
  • One random Rare token

*1 out of 100 ten-packs come with one Ultra Rare token in place of one of the Common tokens!

Every player receives a free pack of 10 random Treasure Tokens at the start of their adventure, but players can also purchase tokens online at this website. You can order tokens now by clicking on the STORE tab or by clicking on the TD STORE graphic below. Some players become collectors and trade tokens throughout the year on the TD Forums.

 

Below are the images of the 152 tokens in the 2022 Treasure Token Collection.  You can see higher resolution images of the tokens at the very bottom of this page in the Image Gallery. You can find out vital info on the 2022 Treasure Token Collection by reading our free "Quick Token Reference" which is now available for DOWNLOAD HERE or by visiting the Token Database.

 

(Seven out of the ten tokens in a pack are Common.)

 

(Two out of the ten tokens in a pack are Uncommon.)

 

(One out of the ten tokens in a pack is Rare.)

 

(1 out of 100 Packs have a random Ultra Rare put in place of a Common)  

High resolution images can be found in the Image Gallery at the bottom of this page. While viewing on a PC or tablet be sure to click on the "two diagonal arrows" icon to zoom into the image.

NOTE: With each $250+ token purchase, you can pick one of the above 2022 Ultra Rare tokens to be included in your order for FREE. You can also select from any 2021 Ultra Rare--which can be viewed HERE. Multiples of $250 token purchases apply, so if you place a $500 order, you get to pick TWO FREE Ultra Rares tokens. Multiple sub-$250 orders may not be combined to achieve the $250 free Ultra Rare premium. There is a special screen that appears during checkout to use to tell us which UR tokens you wish to pick.

 

 

2022 Transmuted Tokens
We created a fun system that you can use to craft limited-edition tokens with your unused or left-over tokens. Larger images of the Transmuted tokens can be found in the Image Gallery at the bottom of the page. These Transmuted tokens can be created on our website starting January 3rd, 2022. Complete information about our limited-edition Transmuted Tokens can be found HERE.

An Elder Orb of Dragonkind (requiring only 5 different tokens) can also be made at that time. The details of each what benefits these transmuted tokens bestow are shrouded in mystery at this time.

The Golden Ticket 

We randomly inserted 60 special Golden Ticket tokens into the 2022 token collection. Instead of a Common token, you could get one of these über-cool tokens in your ten-pack.

Golden Ticket participants get a host of extra goodies which include a completely awesome pack of cool tokens and an exclusive GT-only surprise inside a True Dungeon adventure.

 

Gen Con Ticket Draw

In March, we hold a special drawing from the names of all that year's token buyers to date. Ten lucky token buyers will win. Each winner may pre-purchase up to 10 TD tickets at Gen Con (from one slot) before anyone else! Winners are contacted immediately after the drawing. They have one week to pick their event slot and pay for the tickets. If we do not hear back from a winner by the end of that week, another name is drawn. True Dungeon event tickets go on sale for everyone in May. For every ten-pack you buy, we put your name in a virtual hat. Winners are guaranteed to get the exact slot they want without having to worry about the craziness during event registration. You still must pay for the tickets at the normal price.

REMEMBER: The more tokens you buy, the greater your chance of winning!

 

Multi-year Set from 2020-2023

The Shirt of the Imbiber (2022 Ultra Rare) is the third token in a four-year Transmutable recipe. When you have all four Ultra Rare shirts collected (in 2023), you can transmute them into an "über shirt" token which combines the powers from each of the four shirts.

 

Condensed Packs ($1K each)
Some token collectors don't want to spend a lot of time opening hundreds of ten-packs of tokens. They asked if we could make a condensed version available that would look like what 120 ten-packs would be AFTER the Common tokens were turned in for Trade tokens. Condensed packs save collectors the hassle of opening up all those ten-packs, sorting them, and then sending them off to be exchanged for Trade tokens. During the ordering process, you have the opportunity to select what portion of your order you'd like to be Condensed.

Instead of getting the normal 120 packs, you receive the following for each Condensed Pack:

  • Ultra Rare tokens of your choice from either the 2022 or 2021 print runs--mix & match as you like
  • One (1) Ring of the 5th Circle token--the first component in a 5-year story arc Transmuted token recipe that grants your character a special power.
  • One (1) random 2022 Ultra Rare token (There is a chance you might get a second random Ultra Rare token in your order.)
  • 120× Random Rare tokens (10% of these are platinum backed)
  • 240× Random Uncommon tokens (10% of these are platinum backed)
  • Potion Condensed Healing (in place of 21 Potion Ravager Rum tokens)
  • Alchemist's Ink
  • Alchemist's Parchment
  • Darkwood Plank
  • Dwarven Steel
  • Enchanter's Munition
  • Minotaur Hide
  • Mystic Silk
  • Philosopher's Stone
  • 1,000 GP
  • Lenses of Hunting token
  • Normal chance of a Golden Ticket*

*Golden Ticket: The chance to get a Golden Ticket is the exact same chance you would have with a regular token purchase. The proper amount of Golden Tickets are randomly placed among the $1K Condensed Packs.

Condensed Packs are available year-round--in $1,000 increments. 

$8K Super Condensed Packs
Some collectors live overseas and/or have a limited amount of time to convert Uncommon and Rare tokens to Trade Tokens. Some of these folks have requested we transmute ALL their Common, Uncommon, and Rare tokens into Trade Tokens. To meet this need, we offer the $8k Super Condensed Pack. During the ordering process, you have the opportunity to select whether or not you want your order to be Super Condensed.

Instead of getting the normal 960 ten-packs, you receive the following for each $8K Super Condensed Pack:

  • 16×, 32×, or 34× Ultra Rare tokens (depending on the Onyx Set version you selected) of your choice from either the 2021 or 2020 print runs--mix & match as you like
  • Eight (8) Ring of the 5th Circle token--the first component in a 5-year story arc Transmuted token recipe that grants your character a special power.
  • Eight (8) Lenses of Hunting tokens
  • One (1) über-rare Orb of Dragonkind (Great Wyrm) token
  • One (1) über-rare Wish Ring token

  • Four (4) copies of the +1 Turkey Leg of Smiting  token only available to AG members
  • 9-10× random 2022 Ultra Rares 
  • 17× Potion Condensed Healing (in place of 168 Potion Ravagers Rum tokens)
  • 42× Alchemist's Ink
  • 62× Alchemist's Parchment
  • Aragonite
  • 136× Darkwood Plank
  • 67× Dwarven Steel
  • 14× Elven Bismuth
  • 18× Enchanter's Munition
  • 34× Minotaur Hide
  • 125× Mystic Silk
  • 12× Oil of Enchantment
  • 84× Philosopher's Stone
  • 44,000 GP
  • Normal chance of a Golden Ticket*


*Golden Ticket: The chance to get a Golden Ticket is the exact same chance you would have with a regular token purchase. The proper amount of Golden Tickets are randomly placed among the $8K Super Condensed Packs.

The 2023 Treasure Tokens are almost here!

The 2023 Treasure Tokens will shortly arrive at TD HQ – a full two months earlier than planned. Due to well-known supply chain/COVID issues, we had expected the production of the tokens to take the same amount of time as it took last year. Luckily, the factory was able to avoid slow-downs this year, and now the tokens are en route to our warehouse.  Other info you should know:

The Pre-Order Period runs Oct. 10th through Dec. 16th – All free "pre-order" swag is awarded for purchases made during this period. Any token pre-orders placed prior to Nov. 20th should ship out during the last week of November. Any "pre-orders" placed between Nov. 20th and Dec. 1st should ship out either during the first week of December or one business day after the "pre-order" is placed for December pre-orders.

First VTD Patron Adventure in January – Patrons can enjoy two special Virtual True Dungeon adventures in 2023, with the first taking place on the night of Friday, January 13th, 2023.  Additional info about the multi-year Patron trasnmute can be found HERE.

Great Pre-Order Specials!

The Golden Ticket
We randomly inserted 100 special Golden Ticket tokens into the 2023 token collection. Instead of a Common token in a typical ten-pack of tokens, you could get one of these über-cool tokens. Details for the Golden Ticket events can be found at the URL printed on the token. Golden Ticket participants get a host of extra goodies which include a completely awesome pack of cool tokens and an exclusive GT-only surprise inside a True Dungeon adventure. And yes, we know the token says 60, but after the artwork was finalized and sent to the printer, we decided to make more GT runs available to our awesome fans. There are 80 GT slots available at Gen Con and 20 GT slots available at Gamehole Con. If you pull a GT, go the dedicated GT Signup thread on the TD Forum and sign up for the convention where you want to redeem your GT. Don't delay! There are a limited number of slots for each convention--first come gets first pick.

REMEMBER: The more tokens you buy, the greater your chance of finding a Golden Ticket!
 

Multi-year Set from 2020-2023
Shirt of the Shrewd (a 2023 core Ultra Rare) is the fourth and final token in a four-year Transmutable recipe. When you have all four of these Ultra Rare shirts, you can transmute them into the Arcanum Shirt which grants the wearer +2 to Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, and Focus!

 

Condensed Packs ($1K each)
Some token collectors don't want to spend a lot of time opening hundreds of ten-packs of tokens. They asked if we could make a condensed version available that would look like what 120 ten-packs would be AFTER the Common tokens were turned in for Trade tokens. Condensed packs save collectors the hassle of opening up all those ten-packs, sorting them, and then sending them off to be exchanged for Trade tokens. During the ordering process, you select what portion of your order you'd like to be Condensed.

Instead of getting the normal 120 packs, you receive the following for each Condensed Pack:

  • Ultra Rare tokens of your choice from either the 2023 or 2022 print runs--mix & match as you like
  • Ring of the 4th Circle token--the 2nd part in a 5-year story arc token! Transmuting all 5 Rings grants your character a special power and grants you access to Ring Con.
  • 1× random 2023 Ultra Rare token (There is a chance you might get a second random Ultra Rare token in your order.)
  • 120× Random Rare tokens (10% of these are platinum backed)
  • 240× Random Uncommon tokens (10% of these are platinum backed)
  • Amulet of Magnifying
  • Potion Healer's Rum (in place of 21 Potion Warm Spirits tokens)
  • Alchemist's Ink
  • Alchemist's Parchment
  • Darkwood Plank
  • Dwarven Steel
  • Enchanter's Munition
  • Minotaur Hide
  • Mystic Silk
  • Philosopher's Stone
  • 1,000 GP Gold Bar
  • Normal chance of a Golden Ticket*

*Golden Ticket: The chance to get a Golden Ticket is the exact same chance you would have with a regular token purchase. The proper amount of Golden Tickets are randomly placed among the $1K Condensed Packs.

Condensed Packs are available year-round--in $1,000 increments.

$8K Super Condensed Packs
Some collectors live overseas and/or have a limited amount of time to convert Uncommon and Rare tokens to Trade Tokens. Some of these folks have requested we transmute ALL their Common, Uncommon, and Rare tokens into Trade Tokens. To meet this need, we offer the $8k Super Condensed Pack. During the ordering process, you select if you want your order to be Super Condensed.

Instead of getting the normal 960 ten-packs, you receive the following for each $8K Super Condensed Pack:

  • either 16×, 32×, or 34× Ultra Rare tokens (depending on the Onyx Set option you selected) of your choice from either the 2022 or 2023 print runs--mix & match as you like
  • Ring of the 4th Circle--the 2nd part in a 5-year story arc token! Transmuting all 5 Rings grants your character a special power and grants you access to Ring Con.
  • 1× über-rare Path to Enlightenment (Fragment 1)
    • All four fragments transmute into the Mark of Enlightenment in 2026.
  • 1× über-rare Wish Ring
  • 1× über-rare Patron Lapel Pin
  • 4× Limited-edition Adventurers' Guild membership buttons
  • Grunnel's +2 Pointy Stick, which is only available to AG members
  • 9-10× random 2023 Ultra Rares
  • Amulet of Magnifying
  • 16× Potion Healer's Rum (in place of dozens and dozens of Potion Warm Spirits)
  • 51× Alchemist's Ink
  • 53× Alchemist's Parchment
  • 12× Aragonite
  • 107× Darkwood Plank
  • 64× Dwarven Steel
  • 14× Elven Bismuth
  • 20× Enchanter's Munition
  • 48× Minotaur Hide
  • 117× Mystic Silk
  • 10× Oil of Enchantment
  • 105× Philosopher's Stone
  • 44,000 GP
  • Normal chance of a Golden Ticket*

*Golden Ticket: The chance to get a Golden Ticket is the exact same chance you would have with a regular token purchase. The proper amount of Golden Tickets are randomly placed among the $8K Super Condensed Packs.

Note on Tweaking Order: If you are placing an $8K order but you wish to tweak the demoninations of what items who receive (like 3x Treasure Chips instead of 10x Treasure Chips), we should be able to accommodate your request for some alterations. In most cases a tweak won't be a problem, and you can put those notes in the Comment box when you place an order.  However, please email us before you place the order -- just to make sure what you are requesting is doable. So long as it is not something crazy, it won't be a problem.  Sorry for the cryptic note to follow.  Please email store followed by a symbol that looks like a lowercase a in a circle followed by the domain you're viewing right now.

We have randomly inserted 100 special Golden Ticket tokens into the 2023 token collection. If you found one of these special tokens inside one of your 10-packs, congratulations! The token is your ticket to a special run of an event at an upcoming convention in 2023.  More details later. At the end of these adventures, you'll get an extra bit of fun as well as some super-sweet swag.

How to Sign Up: Browse to the Special Redemption section on the Token Exchange Program page. There you'll have the opportunity to "order" a Golden Ticket reservation. This gives you the ability to enter your Golden Ticket token into our system and then send the token back to us. This gives us your shipping address for the awesome swag that you'll receive after the event.
Please Note:

  • You cannot buy a Golden Ticket from us in this manner. This system is to register a Golden Ticket that happened to be randomly inserted into your token order or via a third party. When you register your Golden Ticket token and send it in, you will not get it back.
  • If you and one or more people are going on the Golden Ticket run together, each person needs to register their Golden Ticket token separately. I.e., do not register more than one Golden Ticket.

Also, we use the TD Forum to place folks into groups, so be sure to visit the Forum to claim your spot on a specific run

"This is nuts!!  How did this all come about?", you may be asking yourself. Well, it all started with a DM named Jeff Martin and a cool stick...

The True Dungeon module that you will be running through at GenCon has a long evolutionary track that started in 1997, when Dungeon Master Jeff Martin decided to host an all weekend game-a-thon with five of his gamer buddies.
