How to Game Master like a Fucking Boss

That's right, this time I review a game mastering aid book with the F-word in the title, deal with it. :)

''How to Game Master like a Fucking Boss'', 

by Venger As'Nas Satanis

That's hopefully not his real name, but I wouldn't take any chances. Don't summon anything with that name.

First off, it's kind of a fun read. The author obviously doesn't take himself too seriously but he does take the gaming hobby seriously. 

This is a sizable PDF at 124 pages, including covers, index, some full page artwork here and there, as well as many pages of Random Tables, a glossary of the author's own ''magical language'' called Viridian and a few dungeon maps.

Among the many tables there are tables for ''Past Events'', ''Desires, Goals and Motivations'' and ''Stupid Gnome Hats'', and many more.

Before all those tables, Venger also goes thru many topics about Game-mastering but doesn't go on and on for too long. So it's not like reading a textbook of some kind. There are subjects such as ''Who cares about Atlantean Glyphs?'', ''Rather than take a Five Minute Recess'', ''Session Write-ups and Recaps'', and lets not forget ''Peewee’s Playhouse Paradigm''.

So, even if you've been gaming for years or are relatively new to the hobby, this book should have something for most of you out there. Take a little of the advice, all of it, or somewhere in between.


As of this writhing, the book is on sale for only 10$ on DrivethruRPG. Go check it out. You can also get it as a POD.
