Gen Con: Day 1
August 15-18

F eaturing game industry veterans, award-winning authors and artists, jaw-dropping costumes, thousands of events, a growing Family Fun Pavilion, and the newest games on the market, Gen Con truly is The Best Four Days in Gaming! This year, Gen Con takes place August 15-18 in Indianapolis, Indiana -- and is now underway!

A Night with Dungeons & Dragons

Spend the evening in Baldur’s Gate at the official Sundering launch party! On Thursday night from 7 PM - 11 PM, Baldur's Gate will open its gates to travelers from across Faerûn for a one-of-a-kind event. Mingle with D&D designers, authors, and other industry luminaries while enjoying food, drinks, music, adventure and more (plus, receive a special give-away exclusive to this event, shown below):

Something Foul Afoot in Baldur's Gate

Amid preparation for Founders Day, a sinister plot unfolds. Those closest to Duke Adrian Abdel will fall to the blade of assassination, and it will be up to attendees to uncover the truth. Join the Dungeons & Dragons community in solving a murder mystery puzzle created by the devious minds of Lone Shark Games. As the evening progresses, party attendees can track down suspects and uncover the truth! Solve riddles, question characters, confirm alibis, and discover who the true murderer is—and what he or she is planning for Baldur's Gate. Those who help solve the mystery and become champions of justice will have a chance to win awesome D&D prizes, including a unique item*.

(In fact, here's an early image of the item in construction. The sword blade has been shaped, along with the roughed design for the hilt and pommel.)

When: Thursday, August 15th from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM
Tickets: Available here.

*subject to restrictions
