Dungeon master campaign planner to plan your entire TTRPG with story arcs / weekly game adventures for a cohesive story



  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 1 PDF

14 Page E-Book (13 pages of content) that will help you, the dungeon master, take any idea for a Dungeon and Dragons (or any RPG) campaign and bring it to life. This journal / electronic planner walks you through a huge checklist to help you create the overall story, kingdoms, factions, heroes, villains etc for your campaign world.

It doesn't stop there. Then it delves into getting you to plot out the story arcs or acts within your campaign. This will allow you to create a 2+ act campaign that feels cohesive because you planned many of the main events (not their outcomes as that is up to you / the players' choices / randomness of the dice).

The last section is for you to plan out the scene or the game session / adventure for your game session. It calls back to items in your campaign and act so that you don't forget to foreshadow the big reveal or other plot twist.

The idea is that you will print the campaign section once. The act section 2 - 4 times typically to create your overall campaign. Finally you will print out the scene section as often as needed - maybe weekly to once a month depending on how long it takes for the players to finish out the adventure you have planned for them.

This allows you to create a high level end-to-end campaign that allows you to remember major events that need to happen. Flex major events because your players are influencing their world and have the ability to prevent the consequences of the main villain's (if there is one) plan.

PDF 14-Page E-Book (see description above) available in 8.5"x11" (US Standard Size) for use to either read on any device or print (note printing will have a white edge called a margin around each page - for best results print in best quality color on good white paper).

There are two PDF's - one is for just printing or if you have my handwriting an edible PDF.

I have also included a zip file with 5 Rich Text Format files that are the writing prompts for this planner. You can then import these into Scrivener or into any text editor (notepad / MS Word / Pages / etc.) and write to your heart's content because sometimes truly epic stories just won't fit in those lines. Note all of the cool artistic flair are removed from this zip file because Rich Text Format doesn't support it. Use this version if you want to use this as a launching off point for your commercial 300 page D&D adventure or D&D themed fantasy fiction.

I have gone through this, and think it will help a lot with my campaign planning! After messaging the creator, too, they added some RTF portions that work nicely with Scrivener. Thank you!
