Publisher's Summary

We RPG game masters have a lot of tools to help us run our role-playing games. Our monster books and bestiaries give us piles of foes to throw at our adventurers. The various guides for game masters often give us non-player characters, treasures, and story-building tips. 

One of the hardest parts of game mastering, however, is coming up with interesting adventure locations for our characters to explore. These locations need to be fantastic, detailed places that capture the minds of our players every session we run. Good locations are hard to improvise and often hard to strip out of a fully fleshed-out adventure. 

Sly Flourish's Fantastic Locations is an audiobook of 20 system-agnostic locations you can drop into your favorite fantasy role-playing game. Each location builds on a fantastic theme, such as a mysterious ancient structure under the ice, a cursed castle of a mad king, a fallen celestial fortress, or a dwarven mine that cracked into the tomb of a dead god. 

Thanks to the support of 779 backers on Kickstarter, this audiobook was expanded to include a total of 20 locations each with full-color artwork included as a PDF along with this audiobook. This audiobook helps you fill your mind with the lore of these fantastic locations so you can build fantastic worlds for your players.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great Stuff

A great pseudo source book for veteran and aspiring DMs to use either as inspiration or directly lifted. Narration is clear and delivered without issue or annyoance which is just what I wanted for this sort of book. Great book and audio supplement that I will enjoy stealing from in future campaigns.

Awesome, Entertaining Resource

I have the softcover of this book, which I love, and the audio version is just as awesome. I can listen to the book while I type and make notes for my game about the creatures, traps, NPCs, and more I want to put into the locations. I love the different voices Rudy puts into each location to give them a different feel, which helps envision the author's intent. I just used the audio book on a plane to prepare for a three-day, nonstop campaign at a convention. You can listen to the book on your way to a game, while working out, doing dishes, folding laundry, etc. and get that prep time in. Thank you so much for this!

What were they thinking!

Great material in the work itself; utterly ruined by the grating and horribly amateur voice reading.

I’m assuming they saved the cash from the KickStarter and did the stretch-goal-audiobook on the cheap (real cheap). It is literally unlistenable.

Just terrible. Returning the audiobook until they re-record it with at least a semi-professional.
