I know your struggles and pain. I know you’ve been trying your hardest to balance your social life, your sleep schedule, and your campaign. And, trust me, I know how hard this can be. I know how hard it is to keep track of every story, every map, every enemy, every player, and every last second improvised NPC. You’ve practically sold your soul for the amount of paper you’ve printed campaign notes on. Either that or your eyes have burnt in hell for how much you’ve stared at your screen. And it is time to change that. It is time to change all of that.
That’s right, you hard-working DM! This post is for you. I know how hard it is to do the things you do. For this reason, I’ve decided to look over our beautiful store to find a way to save your time, life, and soul. Here are the best products you can buy to change your DM life:
The Master’s Black Book
Buy. This. Thing. I can’t overstate this. The Master’s Black Book changed me. If you think I’m trying to sell you on it, please text me and ask me to send pictures of it. My Black Book is full of notes, fight trackers, initiative trackers, NPCs, PCs, essential notes, and more. This one small book has saved so many trees from my evil DM claws. Not only that, but it’s also made preparation ten times easier. If there is only one thing you can get yourself as a DM, this one is it.
The Big Book of Battlemats
Ultimate NPCs: Skulduggery
Alright, last up, we’re going to cheat a little. We know you know your players’ characters are horrible people. So horrible, in fact, that they end up always getting involved with all manner of underbellies. Thieves, assassins, gamblers, you name it. Your players have always enjoyed being near them. And there is only so much inspiration one can have in writing assassins. That’s why the Ultimate NPCs: Skulduggery book is godsent. It gives you all the renegades you could ever want. And many ways to spice up the way they encounter your players. If that sounds up your alley, then be sure to steal a coin (Don’t ACTUALLY steal. It’s a saying.) and spend it on this book.
