Description Edit | History

From the back cover:

Do you ever wish you had a guide to help make running ongoing campaigns easier and more fun? Then you need Odyssey: The Complete Game Master’s Guide to Campaign Management—to our knowledge, the first system-neutral book solely dedicated to the art of managing campaigns.

Written by award-winning authors - and veteran game masters - Phil Vecchione and Walt Ciechanowski, Odyssey is jam-packed with in-depth advice on starting, managing, and ending campaigns. Whether you’re an old hand or are new to game mastering, you’ll find a wealth of tips and techniques you can put to immediate use in Odyssey.

Odyssey’s authors bring unique perspectives to the topic of campaign management. Phil is a project manager and wrote Never Unprepared: The Complete Game Master’s Guide to Session Prep. Walt is an improvisational game master with years of experience in the tabletop RPG industry. Both write for the award-winning game mastering blog GnomeStew.com, and they collaborated on Masks: 1,000 Memorable NPCs for Any Roleplaying Game and Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots to Inspire Game Masters.

Odyssey is full of practical guidance on campaign management for almost any RPG:
• A guide to starting a new campaign, from coming up with the initial concept to running a smooth first session
• Tips on structuring stories, handling problem players, and making your campaign thrive
• Advice on actively managing every element of your campaign - stories, characters, players, risk, and change - while avoiding common pitfalls
• Examples of how every aspect of campaign management looks when handled well or badly
• How to end campaigns on a high note, including what to avoid

Howdy! I'm the publisher of this book, and I'm an active RPGG user. If you have any questions about Odyssey, I'd love to answer them.
