The essential supplement for MasterBook returns with rules extras like spells, new skills and background options, and vehicle combat, as well as critically-acclaimed guidelines for creating your own worlds and crossing genres. Precis Intermedia’s MasterBook Companion Classic Reprint incorporates a few changes like a new cover, but otherwise maintains the same content and appearance of the original book.

Revisit MasterBook, the universal game system that can be adapted to everything from science fiction to high fantasy, from pulp adventure to dark horror. Requiring only two 10-sided dice and greatly enhanced by the optional MasterDeck cards, MasterBook produces variable results to determine the outcome of both combat and social interaction, with a value scale that quantifies weights, distances, and times for these outcomes. Originally published by West End Games, MasterBook is now part of the Precis Intermedia family of game products.

Incorporating one of the first e-publishing RPG companies, Precis Intermedia is known for its diverse line-up of clear and concise games. Precis Intermedia’s current game lines include the ENnie Award-winning Ancient Odysseys for fantasy gaming; ENnie Award-nominated Two-Fisted Tales for thrilling pulp action; Brutes, New World Disorder, Warcosm, and A Fistfull of Miniatures for miniatures gaming; HardNova 2, Coyote Trail, EarthAD 2, Mean Streets, and Ghostories for low-cost, ready-to-play entertainment; Active Exploits Diceless for universal diceless roleplaying with that familiar ‘dice’ feel; Story Engine for scene and adjective-based, collaborative roleplaying; and more.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
