Fast & Light

Watermarked PDF

Narrative tools and game prep for an improv GM.

Do you struggle to improvise at the table? 

Are you tired of working through a punishing prep routine for every session?

Do you simply need faster game prep?

Would you like to adopt a lighter GM schedule which still gave you a fun story?

I have the answer for you: Fast & Light outlines a simple prep framework to support you when you improvise at the table. Adopting an improv approach to being a GM removes a large part of the burden of prep, while also creating a collaborative and spontaneous story. This book guides you through the fast and light process of running an improv game. Fast & Light explores my seven supports for improv gaming:

  • Background Reading
  • My Players 
  • Instigating Incident
  • Collection of Story Elements
  • Reference Sheets
  • Narrative Outcomes Table
  • Skuld Cards

The ideas in this book are not a quick fix, but the tools supported my transition to prep-lite, improv gaming. I am sure they can help you also make the switch to being an improv GM.

Fast & Light gives YOU faster prep and more story!

This pdf features:

  • A chapter on each support for improv gaming
  • Notes on running an improv game
  • Overview of my fast prep routine
  • One BONUS pdf, a copy of my Narrative Outcomes table 
  • Bookmarks
  • Art Layer for easy printing
  • Internal pdf hyperlinks
  • 78 pages, including front and back covers

Happy Gaming

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.
