How to Create a Great Campaign


If you have played role-playing games for any amount of time it is likely you have heard one of your friends proudly exclaim “wow, what a great campaign that was!”  Session after session of tense and exciting  role-playing and combat that created such fascinating stories you re-tell them for years to come.  Often times it is easy to think that these people are just lucky enough to played under a great game-master, which is probably somewhat true.  However there is more to it than that. 

Great campaigns may be the stuff of legends but they certainly aren't limited to great GMs.  In fact, anyone can create a long-running, epic campaign.  The only problem is most people don't know how to do it.  Luckily you had the foresight to pick up this book.  With my help you too can learn how to craft a game that your players will talk about for years to come.

This book contains a lot of advice and recommendations and with each comes one big caveat; use only what you need.  Not all campaigns, groups, game-masters and games are created equal and as such not all of this advice will apply to you.  More importantly you should always adhere to this one rule; you and your player's happiness comes first.  If you find some of the advice in this book absurd, uninspiring or useless then feel free to disregard it.

This "book" is extremely short: it contains 13 pages of actual content. It contains valid, but very basic advice. It should be the introductory chapter of a book on how to make great campaigns, not the whole book. Maybe worth $1, certainly no [...]

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.
