The Lazy DM's Workbook

Selected Option:
Softcover, Standard Color Book
PDF + Softcover, Standard Color Book

The Lazy DM’s Workbook contains a wide range of tools, maps, and reference sheets to help you run your fifth edition fantasy roleplaying game—and is designed to be useful right at the table. This book contains numerous fifth edition rules references, guides, and random generators to help fire up your imagination as you prepare and run your games.

The workbook also contains ten lazy lairs: full-color maps and quick descriptions of locations common to most fantasy roleplaying games. When the characters take a game session in a direction you didn’t expect, you can use any of these lairs with minimal prep time, running it straight out of the book. This purchase gives you both the workbook in PDF and a zip file of all of the maps formatted for use in virtual tabletops.

The Lazy DM’s Workbook is an indispensable reference, designed to be kept at your side as tales of high adventure unfold at your gaming table.

Gah! Sorry, trying to get a preview working. The flash preview is apparently working.

So, for anyone looking for a preview, you can visit the author's product page here:

There are screenshots of five book pages: reference guides, random tables, and a map of a cave system, one of the Ten Lazy Lairs.

There's also a free PDF worksheet you can use when prepping your campaign.

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.
