Dungeon Master’s Design Kit, softback accessory for AD&D 1st edition, by Harold Johnson and Aaron Allston
“As any good Dungeon Master knows, preparation is the key to a great adventure. The more work done in advance, the smoother the play session will go. And nothing turns players off faster than a DM fumbling for the right piece of information in the middle of a fast-paced session.
That’s where the Dungeon Master’s Design Kit comes in. Inside its 96 time-saving pages are scores of organizational ideas, refereeing hints, and ready-to-use materials that will make you a better-prepared, better-organized, and just plain better Dungeon Master – without spending a lot of extra time you don’t have!
The Dungeon Master’s Design Kit includes a 32-page book of forms, designed to keep important information together and at your fingertips. A number of difficult refereeing situations are covered, including the chase scene, one of the toughest AD&D game situations to judge. Another 32-page book contains the “DM’s Cookbook,” full of ready-to-go ingredients that you can combine in a flash to spice up your campaign. The last book puts the package all together, including loads of practical advice on becoming a better DM.
So pick up the Dungeon Master’s Design Kit, harried DM – and watch your AD&D campaign take off!”
