The Future of Adventure Formats!!

I have been a HUGE FAN of Sly Flourish and the Lazy Dungeon Master for many years, and his practical, elegant approach to game prep has allowed me to continue to pursue my roleplaying game hobby long after I thought I wouldn't have time anymore.

I work a full-time office job, have two small boys, a loving spouse (whom I would like to keep that way), and I also am going to college full time to finish my degree. That doesn't leave me a lot of time to DM a campaign of Dungeons & Dragons and I really thought I would have to leave it behind.

Thanks to the Way of the Lazy Dungeon Master, I've learned and adapted to streamlining my prep from days to an hour or so, thanks to preparing my game the same way as presented in Sly Flourish's Fantastic Adventures, I have time for all my obligations and still have time to play D&D once a week with my friends.

The adventures presented in this book are perfect for a short, episodic game, as they are very easy to skim and run after only a short time. They are centered around the small town of Whitesparrow, though they'd fit into any campaign setting, whether that's as a short side trek in your ongoing game, or a strung into a whole campaign of their own (I'd recommend picking up Sly Flourish's Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master for a bonus adventure set in Whitesparrow and a spiral campaign that ties it all together).

Rudy Basso does a great job, since I have to admit I was skeptical of an adventure book in an audio format, but it really works - especially for folks with a long commute like myself. I have a great memory for audio, and not so good for reading and retaining so this is wonderful.

I eagerly await every Sly Flourish release, and if you are looking for a way to perfect your game prep and distill it down to only those activities that most benefit your game, the adventures here will be a breath of fresh air. They bring to mind classic small adventures like Cult of the Reptile God, but they are presented in such an easy to understand and process form that they will have you pining for every other adventure book on your shelf to be presented the same way. I know I do!!

An even LAZIER way to prep!

I will definitely be using this bad boy to multitask and prep for upcoming D&D games. Laundry, workouts, commutes, and more are now also game prep time! The recording is clean and professional, the adventures are easy-to-run with great stories and twists, and this whole thing is great fun to listen to. Thanks, Rudy and Mike!

Very fun adventures on an Audio Book

I wasn't sure how an audiobook version of this book would turn out, but was pleasantly surprised! Great for listening to in the car and gaining inspiration from.
