From publisher blurb:
When we sit down across the table from a group of players – whether they are lifelong friends or merely gaming buddies, we are taking on a role. Across the table from us sit a group of people who have appointed us as caretakers of their trust, their imaginations, and indeed a good many of their evenings for the coming weeks – perhaps months or even years.
By taking on this role, you take on the responsibility to tell a great and engaging story, to keep the momentum in a world, to make it all link together in a way that is believable, fun, and rewarding, earn the trust of your players, and finally, how to build and keep your integrity as a Storyteller.
The 47 Tips and Tricks listed below are intended to help you do just that. In the following sections, we will address five primary methods to become a great RPG Storyteller:
- How to tell a story.
- How to keep your game engaging.
- How to tie it all together.
- How to earn and keep the trust of your players.
- How to establish and keep narrative integrity.
As always, our aim is to provide players and game masters alike with tools and ideas to help inspire their next game session. We hope you enjoy!
