Tracy Hickman has a long life of gaming experience and he puts some of that wisdom to use here.
I personally love X-Treme Dungeon Mastery because the majority of it matches my play style, and how I like to run an RPG game. While tastes and styles can vary, there’s something that will help everyone that likes to game in this book and it is one I tell every gamer I know, that they should have in their library.
Quest for the Tavern, Story Quest!
At one time I know that Tracy Hickman was working on a players version of this book. Although I completely recommend this book to all of my players as I feel there are lessons for both the MG and player in it.
I am not sure if that is still the case, but certainly, hope we see that additional volume some day!
