You can prepare great games in less time!

One Hour TTRPG Prep is a system agnostic, how-to guide for game
masters of all abilities. You can prepare your next game with less stress,
preparation, and effort without sacrificing any of the fun. This booklet will
simplify your planning process and shorten the preparation time needed to
run a great session of TTRPGs like Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, and
others. With only an hour of preparation beforehand, we’ll teach you how

  • Focus only on what the players are facing in the here and now.
  • Engage in non-linear thinking to avoid over-preparation.
  • Craft an adventure outline to fit on a single page.
  • Utilize index cards to convey player secrets, monsters, and treasure.
  • Create campaign fronts to immerse players within larger stories.

Roleplaying games, at the end of the day, are all about having fun with your
friends. With the preparation tips you’ll find inside, preparing for game night
will start to feel less like work and more like setting up the board. Let’s get
you started.

It’s time to rekindle the joys of being a game master.

Great read so far but a serif font would be nice to make the reading easier...

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
