I would like to give some constructive feedback on my experience playing True Dungeon this year, and some of the experiences I had around the event.
This year as most know True Dungeon was moved from Exhibit Hall A to Lucas Oil Stadium. This was a big change for True Dungeon and I believe that the space worked well for the Dungeon itself, but there were some areas that most that I talked with could use some improvement.
- Signage to True Dungeon - The signage was pretty lack luster. There was a sign that said "More Adventure this way" on the bridge to the crown plaza, but it really didn't give any indication of what was down there. If you walked down the hallway there were signs that were 3x5 off to the sides that mention True Dungeon, and the one lonely floor sticker that was 2x2 that said True Dungeon this way if you walked almost down to the escalators. I talked with many TD players and many mentioned friends that had to be guided to where TD was because it was unclear.
- Signage exiting the Dungeon - There was a hallway split when you exited the Dungeon this year, that if you didn't take a left, you would wander into the Cosplay area. It was so prevalent that I overheard the Cosplay people asking if TD would put up a sign to help direct the people back out to the tunnel. Unfortunately GenCon controls all signage and none was put up. Proper signage on the exit would have been very helpful to lessen the confusion.
- Food choices in the area - There was one food cart area right outside of TD entrance for people to eat at, which was nice, but it was only open a few hours around lunch and 2-3 hours at dinner time. The costs of the food cart were also twice as much as walking all the way to the Georgia Street Food court. I hope that next year this is improved, as it was not adequate in choice, price, or time open to cover the needs of the TD players, and Cosplay people. There was a stadium food vendor area right as you exited TD dungeon. This could have sold water, or soda/gator aide like crazy as we were all tired and thirsty after our 2hr dungeon runs.
Please look into these issues.
