Extend Your Gen Con Adventure With an Epic RPGTravel Experience

We all know that Gen Con is the Best Four Days of Gaming,™ but did you know that you can now experience some of the excitement of those Best Days outside the halls in Indianapolis?

We are excited to partner with the travel and event team RPGTravel Gaming to create a new type of Gen Con gaming experience… on-location! In 2022, we invite all of the Gen Con fans to join us in exciting destinations both in the U.S. and abroad as we #experiencegaming in iconic venues around the world.

Kicking off the week of the Con, RPGTravel will be running a five-day tour through Kentucky and Indiana, playing a custom-written D&D 5e adventure in some amazing locations. Our 30+ hours of gaming begin trackside at the famous Keeneland racecourse in Lexington, Kentucky, and continue with a full day in the Cascade Cave in the Carter Caves Park. Next, we take a boat ride down the Red River to get to our gaming location in an abandoned limestone mine. We will visit a bourbon distillery on the way to a night session in the Great Hall in Clayshire Castle in Indiana. We then conclude the adventure the night before the Con in the unique Indianapolis Market Street Catacombs, a 20,000 square-foot underground dungeon perfect for location gaming!

At the same time, we also have a four-day bespoke VIP experience at nearby Clayshire Castle. Ten VIPs will stay in one of five uniquely themed guest rooms in the 10,000 square-foot castle, enjoy medieval-themed banquets, and play a 25+ hour custom 5e adventure in the two-story Great Hall of the castle. This VIP experience will include a private dinner musical performance in Indianapolis, and conclude with an eight-hour gaming session on Wednesday night in the Indy Catacombs.

During Gen Con Indy, RPGT will be running the hit 2021 adventure “Descent into the Catacombs” as well as its 2022 sequel, “Return to the Catacombs.” You do not have to have played “Descent” to play “Return,” but they’re running encore experiences for those players seeking the entirety of the story (so far!). These and a number of other awesome RPGT Con Events will be available in the Gen Con Indy event catalog. These sold out quickly last year, so we encourage everyone to select their experiences when event registrationopens!

These events are very limited and will fill up on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will close soon for the pre-Con experiences, and these and more Convention events will go on sale with the Gen Con event ticketing system on May 15 at noon (Eastern). Detailed itineraries for these and other experiences are available by visiting RPGTravel’s adventure team is on standby for any questions that you may have, through a chat window directly on the RPGT website.
