  • Conjure up exciting combat encounters

Authors Bill Slavicsek and Richard Baker wrote the hugely popular Dungeons and Dragons For Dummies. Bill has been a game designer since 1986 and leads the D&D creative team at Wizards of the Coast. Richard is a game developer and the author of the fantasy bestseller Condemnation. They give you the scoop on:

  • Using a DM binder to keep records such as an adventure log, PCs character sheets, NPC logs/character sheets, treasure logs, and more
  • Knowing player styles (role players and power games) and common subgroups: hack slasher, wargamer, thinker, impulsive adventurer, explorer, character actor, and watcher
  • Recognizing your style: action movie director, storyteller, worldbuilder, puzzlemaker, or connector
  • Using miniatures, maps, and other game aids
  • Using 21st century technology, such as a Web site or blog, to enhance your game

The book includes a sample adventure, The Necromancer's Apprentice, that's the perfect way to foray into DMing. It includes everything you need for a great adventure—except your players. What are you waiting for? There are chambers to be explored, dragons to be slain, maidens to be rescued, gangs of gnoll warriors to be annihilated, worgs to be wiped out, treasures to be discovered, worlds to be conquered.
