Although the GM's Companion is written with a modern setting in mind, and most of the advice is toward the techno-thriller genre (and good advice it is -- the list of movies is very interesting), it can easily be used for science fiction and fantasy (the airport could be a very interesting fantasy world location with a little work). Recommended. Use with the free d6 Adventure Locations on this website.

The Millennium's End GM's Companion is, bar none, the best GM's guide out there. This should be required reading for anyone who wants to run a Modern game, and any other genre as well. The intial chapter is condensed nugget after nugget of solid advice on how to run a game so the pacing doesn't drag, the NPCs are original and yet believeable, and the storylines are thought-provoking and attention getting. The maps themselves are worth price of the book, including such hard-to-find areas as a corporate compound and a tenement building. The section on computer hacking and piracy is simple and yet complete, unlike so many modern and cyberpunk lines. Add to that the NPCs and adventures, and it's a combination that's impossible to beat. Here's how good it is: WOTC hired the author to run the D20 Modern line. The only down side is that the book is somewhat dated, as it was published in the mid-1990s. However, the core concepts are timeless.
