What Tome Users are Saying

The prompts given in this book offer players a chance to think creatively about their characters, the campaign and world they play in, and the directions they might like to see the game develop. Most prompts apply to all genres and styles of RPG, and are just as suited for new players as they are for seasoned tabletop gamers. Some activities are repeated in different weeks, which I feel encourages GMs and players to ensure that the campaign and the characters keep evolving over time. My only player at the moment has never roleplayed before, but having prompts to think about allows them to engage more with their character, so I’ll be using Tome for Players to help them get their feet wet – and I’m sure it will continue to be a useful tool as the game progresses!

About Tome

This tool has been crafted to aid you as you progress through your current campaign, helping to keep creativity and fun front of mind while assisting you in building new experiences for your players.

Each week, flip open to the next entry in the book (or to whichever you’d like to explore), consider the prompts presented, and record your answers. They are aimed at ‘priming the pump’ of your creativity, and getting you into the right headspace for a weekly session, and occasionally helping to come up with something entirely new.

Finally, each week includes a recap page to record the highlights of what happened during that week’s session, a spot to think about goals for the next session, as well as a fun activity aimed to entertain and help generate new ideas.

Let’s get started!


Is Tome just for D&D, or can it be used with other systems?

Tome is completely system agnostic, so whether you’re leading or playing, you can use Tome to add a shot of creativity to every session.

What’s the difference between Tome for Players and Tome for Game Masters?

In Tome for Players, you’ll get prompts that help you explore your own character in new ways, think about how your character relates to their party members, about the story of the campaign as it stands, and about your own role as a player and what you want to get out of playing the game.

In Tome for Game Masters, the questions instead focus on thinking critically about the characters within the game you’re running, the NPCs that you’ve populated the world around the party with, the exciting details of the world itself, and your role as a game master and the things you’d like to experience.

What’s the difference between Tome Volume 1 and Volume 2?

While some prompts that felt particularly timeless in Volume 1 made the cut for Volume 2, I worked hard to ensure that Volume 2 felt like a continuation and an expansion. You’ll find new prompts and activities that help continue the journey of creative thinking.

Do I need to have Volume 1 in order to use Volume 2?

Nope! You can pick up either volume and have a satisfying, creative, independent experience.

The images in the description for this player edition are identical to the ones in the GM edition. I’m assuming there should be a difference. Without a sample to view, it is very hard to determine whether this product might be something I would use for my gaming sessions as a player.

Definitely agree! From the description it looks interesting, but as I don't know how setting/genre-independent it is and can't read the teeny-tiny images in the description, I have no idea if this would work for my group and games we usually play.
At least a small preview is necessary (at best different ones for Player and GM version)!

Great feedback, thank you! I just got back into town, and I'm taking a look today at how better to present those differences on the page, including some larger and easier to read previews. I definitely want folks to be able to get a clear view of whether Tome is of interest and which they should choose.

Greetings. I received the email for this and the Tome for Dungeon Masters today, but the email linked both to the DM version. This one didn't have the correct link. Just wanted to let you know, not sure how else to contact you :)

Thank you for the heads up! I found myself rolling a series of natural 1’s dealing with the mailings for the release today, so if that’s the worst of it, I’ll take it as a win

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.
