Now they can’t quite remember why they bothered with all of that other stuff.
I’ve written two other books on my tricks and tools for running table-top role-playing games. But now it’s time to put those tools to the test – making an actual RPG campaign. Right here, right now, on the page. I’ll start with the seed of a story idea, go through world-building and character creation, then expanding that basic plot out into scenes, combats and crises. Then I’ll run the campaign.
It’s been a long, strange year. The strangest of my life and you know by now just how weird that is. After fighting so many monsters, I thought it was over. I thought the world was safe. I was wrong. Volume 3 includes the final books of the Lily Quinn series.
My name is Lily Quinn and I’m a sex-powered half-demon monster hunter. That sets my bar for weird pretty high. So trust me when I say there’s something really weird going on in this city. Volume 2 includes the middle four books of the Lily Quinn series.
My name is Lily Quinn. I’m a bounty hunter. I work for the College of wizards to hunt down monsters that go bump in the night. If they’re hot, sometimes I bump right back. Volume 1 includes the first four books of the Lily Quinn series, plus the Valentine’s Day special story, Max's Long Night.
My name is Stefano Rossi. I’ve been hunting werewolves all my life and it’s a dangerous job – but now it’s almost done. There are only a few left and when they’re gone, the curse will be over. I may have saved the worst for last, though. I’m hunting the biggest, baddest wolf of them all. The one savage and strong enough to escape every hunter before me. And this time, I have a partner.
They say everything changes after marriage and kids. Well, it’s true for me and Max, but not in the way most people think. Now I have to juggle raising our daughter, Eva, and being a half-demon bounty hunter. First, I’ll pick up some milk at the store and then I’ll hunt down a supernatural seductress that’s been sucking the life out of the city’s male strippers. I’ve got this all handled. Right?
My name is Lily Quinn and this could be my last story. It’s been a long, strange year. The strangest of my life and you know by now just how weird that is. I fought off everything that Asmodai could throw at me and thought it was all finally over. I thought the world was safe and Asmodai had no more tricks left to pull. I was wrong.
Two months ago, everything went to hell. What should have been a routine monster hunt ended with a demon in my living room. He killed one of my best friends that night and I still don’t understand why. Now I’ve got a lead on the wizard who summoned up my demonic trouble from the Nether and nothing in this world or any other will keep me from hunting him down.
My name is Lily Quinn and I was supposed to be the best monster hunter in the city. After everything that’s happened, though, I’m not even sure I want to do this job anymore. I’ve lost everything. But what else is a girl like me going to do with herself? So I’ve taken another bounty, one high in the mountains where a yeti’s been tearing it up. And I don’t mean throwing parties.
In nine years of monster hunting, I’ve never faced anything like this. The College calls him a golem, and we’re not talking a cute little homunculus. Someone has sliced up a human and stitched him together with parts of a demon, and the result frightens even me. Now I’ve been forbidden to pursue the golem. But why would anyone make a creature like him? And why am I being told to leave it alone?
I’m Lily Quinn: half-succubus, monster hunter, insatiable sex fiend… but you know all that by now. So maybe it’s finally time to tell the first story, the one about how all of this began. How I met Evaine and everything she taught me. How I nearly lost Max forever. How I became… me.
Last night, Max found something that reminds us both of a werewolf. No one’s said anything about a werewolf in the city, but there’s something out there. Something dangerous. Well, that’s what they pay me the big bucks to deal with. Now I need to figure out what I’m up against and how to find it. I’ve got some long nights ahead of me.
For eight years, I’ve hunted any monster the College is willing to pay me for. They’ve pitted me against vampires, werewolves, fairies, and rogue wizards. Now it seems that I’ve finally earned a bit of trust and they has a problem. A mummy has secured a stranglehold on real quicksilver, a rare alchemical reagent. I don’t do magic, but that’s why they called me – wizards aren’t welcome in Egypt.
My name is Lily Quinn and I’m a sex-powered half-demon monster hunter. That sets my bar for weird pretty high. So trust me when I say there’s something really weird about this job. I’ve got two dead College wizards, murdered by a… cute junior advertising executive? Rick Sung is no kind of monster I know of, so how the hell did an ordinary human manage to kill a pair of trained mages?
My name is Maxwell Ferguson. Max. My best friend is Lily Quinn… but she’s probably not like your best friend. For one, she’s not entirely human.

And now she’s invited me out to dinner for Valentine’s Day.
My name is Lily Quinn and I’m the best monster hunter in the city. The College of wizards pays me a lot of money to track down and deal with the supernatural dangers that infest the mortal world.

My players asked me how I ran my games and what made them work, so I wrote a book. Then they asked for specific examples and ideas, so I wrote another one. This companion to My Guide to RPG Storytelling goes deeper into creating in-game crises, with lists of example scenarios and twists. The second half covers using voices, mannerisms, and archetypes to create NPCs.
I’ve been role-playing all my life and I’ve run a lot of well-received campaigns. My players asked me what made my games work and this book is the result. This isn’t a rulebook for any gaming system, but it’s a how-to for my style of creating memorable NPCs, planning games, and engaging with your players.
