From organizing your first D&D game to dealing with difficult players, this book covers everything a DM needs to know. Written for the newest edition of D&D by the experts at Wizards of the Coast, creators of the game, it shows you how to:

  • Recognize all the common codes, tables, and spells
  • Understand the parts of a D&D adventure and how to create dungeon maps and craft monsters
  • Shape storylines and write your own adventures
  • Find your style as a DM and develop a game style that plays to your strengths
  • Script an encounter, vary the terrain and challenges, and establish rewards (experience points and treasure)
  • Decide whether to use published adventures
  • Use and follow the official Dungeon Master’s Guide
  • Develop a campaign with exciting themes, memorable villains, and plots that keep players entranced

If you’re getting the urge to lead the charge in a D&D game of your own, Dungeon Master 4th Edition For Dummies will introduce you to the DM’s many jobs. With the information you need to start your own game, craft exciting stories, and set up epic adventures, you’ll be on your way!

"Synopsis" by , Now updated--the insider's guide that shows Dungeons &Dragons enthusiasts how to run their own D&D games

More than 4.6 million North Americans currently play Dungeons &Dragons, the granddaddy of all fantasy roleplaying games. For every D&D game, there's a Dungeon Master--the person who directs the storyline and acts as a referee. Written by high-level insiders at Wizards of the Coast, the company behind D&D, and updated to cover the new Fourth Edition of the game as well as new online game-play options, this fun and easy guide shows current and aspiring Dungeon Masters exactly what it takes to orchestrate successful D&D adventures and campaigns. It comes complete with two new sample dungeons, color illustrations, and an indispensable gatefold Cheat Sheet.

James Wyatt (Renton, WA) is the Lead Story Designer for D&D, one of the lead designers of D&D 4th Edition, and the main author of the 4th Edition update of Dungeon Master's Guide (978-0-7869-4880-2). For Bill Slavicsek and Richard Baker's biographies, please see above.
