Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master by Sly FlourishAdventurer! We've resurrected our April 2022 Sly Flourish Bundle with the Lazy Dungeon Master and Fantastic Adventures lines from Sly Flourish. Since 2009 the Lazy DM himself, Mike Shea, has published books, articles, podcasts, and videos that help gamemasters run great tabletop roleplaying game sessions. With the core doctrine of "prepare what matters to our game," the Sly Flourish books detail eight steps to help DMs quickly conjure exactly what they need at the table, with a focus on staying flexible and being able to improvise as the story expands. And the Fantastic Adventures series takes that wisdom from the table to the page, with scenarios, lairs, and locations you can easily drop into any Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition fantasy campaign.

This revived April 2022 offer once again presents ebooks of most of the Sly Flourish line through 2021. For just US$5.95 you get all four titles in this revived offer's Lazy Collection (retail value $21) as DRM-free ebooks, including the book that started it all, Sly Flourish's DM Tips, plus The Lazy Dungeon Master, Return of the Lazy Dungeon Master, and The Lazy DM's Workbook.

Ruins of the Grendleroot by Sly FlourishAnd if you pay more than the threshold price of $20, you'll level up and also get this revival's entire Fantastic Collection with eight titles in the Fantastic Adventures 5E scenario series worth an additional $75, including the Adventures, Locations, Lairs, and Ruins of the Grendleroot scenario anthologies plus the four beautiful artbooks that accompany the main books.
