How did they do the piece bazaar this time?
It was Dwarvenite by the pound. They also had KS5 starter set, KS2 Cavern set and KS5 Zaltar's Game Room. Ended up going with Dwarvenite by the pound, but only bought 1 as I'm waiting for the KS6 PM to open and was conservative with all Gen Con purchases as a result.

Everyone at the booth was incredibly kind and willing to answer any questions in spite of how exhausted they must have been, thank you DF staff for being so accommodating! I got to meet and talk to Toby, Selina and Nate and they were all fantastic (I was the dude on Thursday with long red hair, van dyke goatee, glasses and a red Stranger Things / D&D red box mashup shirt). Also got to meet Stefan at the live play and he did not disappoint!

Just wanted to say the booth looked great and the piece bazaar ran very smoothly. I was able to talk with a couple of the folks at the booth* and they were very helpful and informative. Hopefully I didn't bore anyone with discussing what I would like to see happen with some of the city stuff (premade building configurations beyond the cottage, basically). You guys do a great job.

*I apologize, I did not get their names. Stefan and Nate are the only two I know by sight and it was not either of them. As a side note, I'm not generally the type of person to just walk up to someone that I know (as in, I know who they are, not I know them personally) and strike up a conversation. Do Stefan or Nate (or anyone else at DF for that matter) welcome people doing that?

Last year they were very slow to post them (months). Your best bet is to try to watch it on their twitch.
Got it, so its on GenCon's side, not y'all's.

Yeah as soon as we get something from them we will post/link it. I believe people can still watch on their twitch though.
Oooh thanks for the tip: here's the link:

Is there an ETA for when Saturday's game livestream recording will make it to youtube/somewhere? (soon?, couple days/week after the team returns from GenCon, etc)

Thanks subtalon. :D
That's the first painted version of the portal that I've seen. You would think they might have shown us something prior to actually using it at the convention. I don't get their priorities, most of the time anyway. ;) :lol:
It was our initial intention to launch the pledge manager before Gen Con and have everyone see it there. We weren’t able to finish testing in time so this didn’t happen and we opted to launch it sometime after the conventions. Sorry no pics were posted sooner.
Nina, can you confirm if the portal will have the blood on it or not? I think most of us would like the option of having more versatility with bloodless stairs if we can petition for it. (Though they do look really cool!)
We hadn’t yet submitted the final paint sample so I will mention to them that people might want it without.

Just added a photo of the portal. It looks so amazing. Also added a photo of the amazing Nina running a Hellscape game for some lucky GenCon attendees.

Thank you, Nina!
Thank you, it was great meeting you and your son!
