About the Author

James D'Amato is the author of The Ultimate RPG Backstory Guide and The Ultimate RPG Gameplay Guide, as well as the creator and game master of the One Shot Podcast and several spin off podcasts dedicated to RPG gameplay. He trained at Second City and iO in Chicago in the art of improvisational comedy: he now uses that education to introduce new people to role-playing, and incorporates improvisational storytelling techniques to create compelling and entertaining stories for RPG campaigns and one-shot adventures.


"James D'Amato is one of those rare storytellers who can not only make those delightful and unexpected choices that make the table laugh or their eyes go wide, but he has that second, rarer gift. When doing it, he can build upon what's already been established, weaving a little more and passing the tapestry to someone else to be inspired from."

-Alan Linic, writer for Saturday Night Live and cohost of the tl;dm podcast
"Look, I'm gonna level with you: James D'Amato is doing the coolest, most exciting, and original work in tabletop game design right now and provides a truly vast assortment of tools and techniques for you to immediately and profoundly improve the narrative experience of your game. If I were you, I'd be getting this book in my hands as fast as possible!"

-Brennan Lee Mulligan, host of CollegeHumor's Dimension 20 D&D RPG show
"I've been role-playing for thirty-five years and I'm still learning how to make our sessions more fun and more emotionally resonant by listening to the great One Shot podcast. James has put together a great collection of ideas that'll appeal to a wide range of players, from newbies to old hands."
