I think I’m going to start a recurring series here at The Action Point, focused on collections of other people’s stuff that I like and enjoy using. So here’s the first
Campaign Mastery has been around for a good long while and is run by the same guy who has been writing Roleplayingtips.com since 1999 (which just celebrated its 500th issue!!) I have been a follower of the blog since the beginning, and frankly feel kind of ashamed that I haven’t pimped them out before now.
The thing I love most about Campaign Mastery is their erudite and in-depth breakdowns of roleplaying topics and questions that dig way, WAY deep into the meat of whatever topic they’re discussing. They also do an awesome “Ask the DM” series where they answer emails written to them inquiring for help on topics that most of GMs have dealt with at one point or another.
Here’s a collection of links I’m using currently from Campaign Mastery, putting together and fleshing out my intrigue-heavy Tales of Brittanis campaign.
I can’t recommend these guys more emphatically. Reading their blog and applying its advice has made me a better GM… and that’s about the best praise we GMs can give one another, isn’t it?
