How to Game Master like a Fucking Boss

How to Game Master like a Fucking Boss


This is the accumulated wealth of my 30 years playing, designing, and (most importantly) Game Mastering paper & pencil roleplaying games.  I wrote a book that I would want to read, something I could refer back to again and again.  Not every suggestion or recommendation is worth its weight in gold, nor will they be to everyone's taste.  However, I believe there's enough personal wisdom shared...   [click here for more]
