How to Spice Up Your Game


When you play games often, and especially when you play many different games, at some point you might notice that the playing routine starts to get really similar and linear each time you play. Player behavior as well as your own behavior as a game master can easily become all too uniform if you do not vary the game experience enough. This book covers suggestions for many different techniques that, though sometimes unconventional, might help spicing up your game. They introduce new mechanics to your gameplay that can help catch your players’ attention better or help you all focus more on the experience of having a great time together and telling a good story rather than playing the game in strict routine.

The techniques you will find in this book can be applied to almost any type of Role-Playing Game and can at any point be introduced or completely abandoned if you do not find them fitting your style of play. Most of those measures go unexplored by Game Masters but can really help giving your game that special touch that converts a good game into a perfect game. Some of them are troubleshooters for certain scenarios, others explore Meta game areas that are untouched during regular play sessions and some just help adding a different flavor to your story.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
