About the adventure

This Workshop Series is designed to discuss how to improve the quality of your games overall, what to focus on, suggestions for the hardest parts of worldbuilding, and how best to handle problem players. I believe that there is a distinction between a Dungeon Master and a Game Master. Being a Game Master is something that involves creating a better environment for your players, having a more fun time behind the screen, and being well equipped for some of the hardest parts of running a table.
