    15 years I've been running a campaign world of my own making. I've never really thought to read up on it, or maybe there just wasn't source material apparent. This book puts a finger on the pulse of pretty much every campaign I've run or played in, highlighting issues, analyzing them thoroughly, and providing excellent solutions to age-old problems. We might never run a perfect game, but this really gives you the insight to push forward in the right direction.

    Finally someone has put together a book that goes beyond the Idiot’s Guide. As a rather egotistical Dungeon Master, I wondered what this tome could teach me. After all, my group of players seems pretty satisfied with the game I run. But with only a few chapters I realized that there could be so much more. The game that I want fosters a growing relationship between me and my players – and between themselves; it is immersive. My mature players could explore areas within themselves they never thought they would go to in a game. The group would become tight-knit, but with no one player or DM running all aspects of the show like a dictator. What Mr. Smolensk offers are ways to get your perhaps childhood favorite game and improve it for the person you are today. He asks us DM’s to grow out of our stagnant, store-bought games and to improve upon them, to step up and out of any small-minded arrogance that we hold. Additionally, we should develop our own worlds and continue to tweek them... More > taking research and player feedback into consideration. We are looking, hopefully, for the best possible experience. Mr. Smolensk only points out that the best possible experience requires work. If I had a complaint about the book it would be that it’s not an easy read. I constantly found myself figuring out how to implement what I was reading into my game. The problem with that for me is that I stopped reading to give myself time to ponder. So it took me a while to read, but it’s worth it.< Less
