Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master is a book designed to help all of us GMs get more out of our RPGs by preparing less. Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master uses the experiences of thousands of GMs to help us focus on how we prepare our games, how we run our games, and how we think about our games. It includes practical steps for focusing our preparation activities on those things that will bring the biggest impact to our game.

Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master builds off of the concepts of the well-received GM's guidebook Lazy Dungeon Master, updating that book with five years of new experiences, new approaches, and new observations of the way people prepare and run RPGs. This new book is a completely self-contained work, which does not require anyone to have previously read The Lazy Dungeon Master.

Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master offers a new focused approach for preparing and running our roleplaying games. The book includes an eight-step guide for lightweight game preparation and is focused on how we prepare for our games, how we run our games, and how we think about our games.

Prepare what benefits your game.

    This is a well-written book summarising advice for storytellers that is building on many sources and even dungeon master surveys (which can be found at the end of the book). Each chapter contains illu...

    This book is exactly what it says on the tin. This is not a guide for anyone interested in in-depth, expansive DM style. It's for those who want to get the maximum bang for their buck with dming prep ...

    A really fantastic resource for DMs - I grabbed the audiobook on a whim and I might pick up the paperback too for reference. I was surprised at how many ideas were presented that I hadn't considered, ...
