The heart of roleplaying is the gaming session, that point when everyone is gathered around the gaming table - and exactly when so many of your game mastering skills are most needed. To the best of our knowledge, there's never been a system-neutral book focused on running great sessions. Until now. Focal Point: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Running Extraordinary Sessions is that book.
Focal Point is the third volume in Engine Publishing's "accidental trilogy" of game mastering advice books, which began with Never Unprepared: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Session Prep and continued in Odyssey: The Complete Game Master's Guide to Campaign Management. You don't need those books to enjoy and make use of this one, although they do complement each other well. Focal Point is a standalone guide to running great game sessions.
Each of Focal Points's award-winning authors - Phil Vecchione, Walt Ciechanowski, and John Arcadian - is a veteran GM with years of experience, and each of them excels at a particular aspect of game mastering. John is an entertainer, a GM who loves props and drawing his players into the game world. Walt is a storyteller, an adventure-writer who makes his living in the RPG industry. Phil is a facilitator an organized GM who specializes in helping his players work well together.These three roles - entertainer, storyteller, and facilitator - are the core of Focal Points. From building "sets" for your gaming table, to using flowcharts to structure your adventures, to making sure everyone in your group feels comfortable during play, this guidebook addresses everything that goes into running an extraordinary gaming session.
