So all my shipping is done but I never got my tote bag so guess I need to email DF as they are reporting US shipping complete.

My magnetic walls were warped so requested a replacement and only other issue is the advanced builder classic free standing corners are warped. DF has trouble with corners it appears. Love the rest though!

(Maybe should split this to a separate thread, but...), my 1.5 hours per encounter is based on my home group -- so they aren't expecting a go-go-go pace like they would/I would at a convention setting. There was a fair bit of character interaction -- with Zaltar/Doom, with the door in encounter 2. A lot of puzzling out the lever room, interacting with the ghost. Etc. None of the fights took particularly long, but the RP and puzzle elements were effective/interesting/positive for my group. There are parts you can probably push faster, with a pure combat focused group, but I think you'd be doing the module a dis-service.

Hmm.
1.5 hours per encounter.

Having read the material I would have estimated 30-35 minutes for encounter 1 and 45 minutes on average for the remainder with an occassional encounter taking an hour.

I was thinking that I was going to need at least 7 encounters for 6 hours and maybe 8 if the party was really efficient in more than one encounter.

I could extend the roleplaying in some of the early encounters but then there would be zero chance of getting through most of the entire dungeon in the 12 hours of total play.

I may have to cut some of the intemediary encounters in the final 6 hours once I see how the first 6 go. I can see the last one potentially taking 2 hours.

My group got through 1-6 in about 8 hours, so sounds like we're in the same general ballpark. I expect the later ones to slow down too.

a note arrived a few minutes ago from Dwarven FOrge stating the shipping system is experiencing "delays" and that the backlogged packages will go out either last night, today or right after labour day (Labor day for those of you that cannot spell).

looks like I have only the first 6 encounters for Sept 8. Not sure how I am going to make that last 6 hours of play.
Each encounter is about 1.5 hours based on the two groups I've ran through them.

Well crap.

We have cleared Canadian customs but are now waiting for a "broker" to be assigned.

I thought the broker was UPS?

Sigh. I was hoping to get this in time for Saturday's game.

Shipment left Buffalo 42 minutes ago, according to UPS

Here are the adverts for my upcoming Dungeon of Doom games at local conventions.

I think ours are on the same truck. Mine is in buffalo as well. Mine is expected Sept 5th but I doubt it clears the border quickly.
