Dungeonaday.com: The Original Online Megadungeon! Kickstarter Project
Dungeonaday.com: The Original Online Megadungeon!: What dungeon, you ask? Dragon’s Delve — a massive 27-level mega-dungeon more than half-a-million words long! It’s an adventure with 661 encounters, none of which are empty rooms or featureless corridors, arranged over nearly 30 maps! A whole campaign worth of material, capable of taking characters from 1st to 20th level, that begins with a bell on a string set by goblins and ends with a battle against a great wyrm red dragon demigod where the fate of a god hangs in the balance!
And while Dragon’s Delve may not be the biggest dungeon in the world, it has the distinction of having been conceived by Monte Cook (Ptolus, 3E Dungeon Master Guide) as the initial offering for Dungeonaday.com — a subscription website that created a classic “dungeon delve” style dungeon by releasing a single hyperlinked, cross-referenced encounter every weekday (each of which now has years of forum posts giving ideas on how to tweak, improve, or survive its challenges).

I've been a member of DaD since the very beginning. It's a GREAT dungeon (my party is on level 5-6 right now), and runs very well indeed.
If you love dungeon-based campaigns, this one is worth it...

I was a paid subscriber the whole time my 4e campaign ran. (about a year). I converted everything no problem. I think it would have been a ton more fun with 3.5e or Pathfinder. I love the whole concept.
I am joining the kickstart so I can get all the levels.

Yes, it's a very good dungeon. I already have the PDFs, but the hyper-linked online version is extremely convenient.
'Can a magician kill a man by magic?' Lord Wellington asked Strange. Strange frowned. He seemed to dislike the question. 'I suppose a magician might,' he admitted, 'but a gentleman never could.'

How this megadungeon fares on that scale?

Definitely a cool Kickstarter project. It would be awesome if it included the option for a print book of the dungeon however as pdfs sadly don't really do it for me.

I decided long after this dungeon that 4e wasn't really my game. I'd like play 3e or 5e with it nowadays. But I definitely felt like 4e was super easy to DM and easy to swap out monsters so I believe these conversions are not hard. To me it's the fluff and the overall design that matters most if converting to 4e. Again maybe it's just me but I feel like I could convert about anything to 4e given a little time. I never played ToEE so I can't be sure on that one.

For offering which basically sounds like set of locations+combats (don't think there is a lot of intrigue and NPC interaction in that dungeon?) you end up recreating half of the content?

I asked them a question about 4 or 5 days ago and am still waiting on an answer. I've seen them post several times on the KS page since then so my question must not be worth their time (or my money).

There's a moderate amount of interaction. Brindenford, the town, plays a lot of roles in interacting with the dungeon. I certainly haven't had to ADD huge amounts to keep my players feeling emotionally invested and interested.
