One Page Dungeon Compendium: 2023 Edition
by A customer [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/20/2024 01:55:09

The One Page Dungeon thing is certainly a noble effort. That being said out of 100+ entries, as a DM who prefers kind of low-fantasy minimally-gonzo stuff I could count on one hand the dungeons that I might ever actually use. "And Still They Rise" means anyone adhering to the theme is doing undead, baking, or both. Lots of (in my opinion) overly precious baking-zombie-themed pages in here. Some rarer stuff playing with "elevation" that might be kind of fun.

Lair of the Lamentable Leech Lord (the very first entry) slotted PERFECTLY into my campaign and we had a great time with it.

Aarlstrom's Magical Wand Shop

This book of wands is a joke. All of these wands are based puns. This is not a useful supplement to add to your campaign.

One Page Dungeon Compendium: 2021 Edition

I bought this on a YouTube recommendation and have enjoyed the dungeons. I typically run long campaigns, 10-45 game days played over 20 real life hours. These dungeons are about one game day and 1 hour of real life playing time each; a stark contrast from what we usually play and a nice change of pace. In addition, you can use them in mulitple ways. They can be dropped into a campagain for an interesting encounter or two. You can canibalize them for ideas. They work well for stand alone adventures as well.

With dozens of adventures, there will be several that you will not like. For me, I don't understand sci-fi mixed with fantasy so I threw all those out. But that still leaves plenty of other good ones to use as you wish. Worth buying.

One Hour TTRPG Prep
by Iván R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/30/2021 05:38:09

Just buy "return of the lazy DM" and watch a few videos of Sly Flourish and How to be a Great GM. This zine is more expensive than return of the lazy DM and about 80% of the advice it gives it's in return of the lazy DM (and in this last book it's more expanded and developed).

For example, in the section "25 minutes: Write the adventure outline" the steps are; Write the outline, Write your session overview, Bring out a dramatic opener, Write visual settings, Outline important NPCs, Outline potential events.

Main difference with Return of the Lazy DM is that for visual settings they advice for "Our advice intentionally deviates from Sly Flourish’s advice to create “fantastic locations.” While you should err on the side of fantastic over mundane, we’ve found that trying too hard to think about and explain why your location is “fantastic” ultimately eats into your limited preparation time". That's it. That's the big difference with "create fantastic locations" of Sly Flourish, BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT while Sly gives you advice on how to write a fantastic location and what makes it fantastic this zine just says "write a sentence or two". That's all the advice.

Next step are "Craft secrets for player discovery" where they refer to Sly Flourish again and don't say anything new, but again is even less developed than in return of lazy DM, and "Select monsters and rewards".

Seriously, the zine is just a bad rip-off of Return of the Lazy DM.
