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

Written by award-winning authors Phil Vecchione and Walt Ciechanowski, Odyssey: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Campaign Management 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. To our knowledge, Odyssey is the first system-neutral book solely dedicated to the art of managing campaigns.

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 or badly
  • How to end campaigns on a high note, including what to avoid
