If you’re planning on running a campaign, you’ll want this book.” — Critical Hits review

After reading Odyssey, I came away feeling better about the mistakes I’ve made over the years, and feeling great about the things I know I’ve done well. I’m really excited to apply my newfound knowledge to future campaigns.” — Gamer: The Blogging review

Written by award-winning authors Phil Vecchione and Walt Ciechanowski, Odyssey is Engine Publishing’s fourth system-neutral book for game masters. When you preorder, you’ll receive the PDF, EPUB, MOBI, and text versions of the book immediately, with the print book expected to ship in early July.

Odyssey is jam-packed with in-depth advice on starting, managing, and ending campaigns. Whether you’re an old hand or are new to game mastering, you’ll find a wealth of tips and techniques you can put to immediate use in Odyssey. To our knowledge, Odyssey is the first system-neutral book solely dedicated to the art of managing campaigns.

You can check out Odyssey’s product page for reviews or download a 19-page PDF preview to get a feel for the book.

Our PDF Guarantee

We believe that all print books should come with a digital version, and we don’t believe that you should have to pay for content twice, so Engine Publishing offers a PDF guarantee for all of our books:

If you buy an Engine Publishing book in print (new), we’ll give you the PDF for free.

All books ordered from our online store automatically come with a free copy of the PDF version, but it doesn’t end there. When you buy one of our books from a retail store, at a convention, or anywhere else that doesn’t automatically provide you with a free PDF copy, just email a photo or scan of your receipt to martin (at) enginepublishing (dot) com and we’ll send you a copy of the PDF version for free.

Our PDFs are fully bookmarked and hyperlinked, DRM-free, and come with EPUB, MOBI, and plain text versions, as well — all included for the same price, and all free when you buy one of our books in print.
