If you’re planning on running a campaign, you’ll want this book.” — Critical Hits review

2014 ENnie Award nominee for Best Aid/Accessory - 2013 Golden Geek Award nominee for Best Supplement

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 Gnome Stew, 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 and badly
  • How to end campaigns on a high note, including what to avoid

Like all Engine Publishing titles, Odyssey includes four versions of the book: DRM-free, bookmarked, hyperlinked PDF plus EPUB, MOBI, and plain text.

Want to try before you buy? You can download a free 19-page PDF preview of Odyssey and read more reviews on the Engine Publishing website.

Like our other system-neutral books for GMs, you don’t need any other supplements to get the most out of Odyssey, but it’s designed to complement Never Unprepared: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Session Prep—with both, you have over 300 pages of system-neutral advice on prep and campaign management. Buy them together for just $17.95.

In my opinion Odyssey is a must-have for all newbie and veteran GMs out there who are interested in managing their campaigns better.” — Stargazer’s World review

If there is no sample PDF, I won't buy it.

It's a zip file, so unfortunately there's no way to offer a sample PDF here. The link to download the sample PDF directly from the Engine Publishing website is in the third-to-last paragraph.

(The same goes for all of our books: We offer a substantial sample PDF but have to provide it via an external link, because our books all include PDF, epub, mobi, and text versions and therefore have to be sold as a zip file.)

Which is funny, because it's probably got one of the best sample pdfs I've come across. As Martin said, check the external link. I know for Never Unprepared, the sample was extremely representative of the final product. Hope that helps.

Cheers! :)

Original electronic
Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
