About the Author

Harry Potter's adventures are built upon a rich tapestry of historical events dating back as far as the first century, during which an ancient Greek wizard known only as Herpo the Foul created the first usable Horcrux. It was this successful venture nearly two millennia ago that enabled the evil wizard Voldemort to create one Horcrux for each piece of his splintered soul. In The Ultimate Wizarding World History of Magic, the editors of MuggleNet document all of the significant historical events that shaped the wizarding world, from Herpo's first breakthrough through the final adventures of Harry Potter and his friends. Readers will learn about the founding of Hogwarts, the beginnings of Quidditch and its rules, the creation of the sword of Gryffindor and much more. It's the only book of its kind to delve so deep into the history and mysteries of the world of witches and wizards. Topics covered include:

· The creation of the Chamber of Secrets

· The beginnings of the Triwizard Tournament

· Incidents related to Muggle "magic,"

· The founding of Gringotts Bank

· Important historical figures

· The birth of Albus Dumbledore

· The Battle of Hogwarts

· Includes a four-page gatefold that details a massive timeline of the major events in the wizarding world

Author Info:

This book provides GMs with hundreds of detailed random encounters for 10environmental zones covering every major wilderness area, from tundra to deserts and everywhere in between.

In The Game Master’s Book of Wilderness Encounters, readers will find 10 core chapters, each devoted to a particular type of wilderness terrain: Caverns, Desert, Forest, Grasslands, Hills, Littoral, Mountains, Ocean, Tundra and Wetlands. After a brief discussion of the terrain type, each chapter launches into a series of tables and sub- tables outlining possible plausible encounters. They cover most of the creatures included in 5th Edition core rulebooks, from familiar wild animals to exotic monsters like kraken and purple worms, plus humanoids, various vocations/professions, and physical hazards that GMs can use for petty harassment (just to remind their players that adventuring isn't all fun and glory). In turn, each table entry discusses how that creature reacts topics range from how to acquire a pet rat to what that ancient red dragon is thinking as it looks down at the party how many of them are present (scaled to the party's average level), and what treasure might be gained from defeating it.

In addition to the more than 600 random table entries, readers will find 10 new monsters - one for each environmental zone - plus three one-shot adventures that put the tables into play.

This unique collection provides game masters with the tools and inspiration they need to create fully realized towns and cities at a moment's notice

The Game Master's Book of Instant Towns and Villages provides GMs with all of the inspiration they need to conjure up unique, vivid urban environments at a moment's notice, or when trying to come up with ideas for new places to be explored. This game-saving collection brings together nearly 170 fully-realized places organized by environment and divided up into villages, towns, cities and capitals, so that when players are trudging through a dangerous swamp, unrelenting desert or stormy coastline and need to find shelter, they can stumble upon a fully realized settlement, elven enclave or dwarven mining camp, without requiring any development in advance on the part of the game master. At its core, this book works a bit like the bestselling Game Master's Book of Non-Player Characters, but instead of providing information about the people one might meet, Instant Towns and Cities provides sketches of urban centers which can act as on demand solutions to unexpected needs (ex. the characters need to find a physician right away and head for the nearest town, which until now, the GM had not developed) or as concepts that inspire entire adventure story arcs, depending on the party’s (or the GM's) wants or needs.

Jeff Ashworth is a bestselling author and editor whose credits includes The Game Master's Book of Random Encounters, The Game Master's Book of More Random Encounters, The Game Master's Book of Traps, Puzzles and Dungeons, The Game Master's Book of Non-Player Characters and Everything I Need to Know I Learned from RPGs among others.

FICTION & GAMING

Author Info:

This beautifully illustrated card deck provides Game Master’s with dozens of fun rewards and curses that can be imposed on their players with a single draw from the deck.

The Game Master's Deck of Boons and Banes consists of 40 stunningly illustrated cards, 20 of which impose a bane of some sort on a character. A curse, for example, that constantly threatens to strangle a PC to death the more active they are. Or a blight that causes mold to grow over the PC’s skin in thick, stinking patches. The remaining 20 cards convey a boon of some sort - a blessing from a higher power or the magic that courses through the natural world. For example, the PC may be blessed with a pair of guardian wolves that travel with them wherever they go and fight on their behalf. Or they might even sprout giant dragonfly wings twice a day, enabling them to escape danger or travel long distances with ease. The exact composition of the deck players might choose to draw from is up to the GM, whether it be made up of all bane cards, all boon cards, an even mix of the two, or some randomly assigned ratio of good to bad. The boons are a great temptation – but drawing a bane could bring about a crippling result, so players will need to weigh the odds every time. The companion book includes a description of each card’s effect and how it impacts the PC who drew it. Within each entry, GMs will also find suggested side quests related to each care, as well as recommendations for scaling card effects up or down depending on the level of the characters drawing from the deck.

About The Author

This unique new RPG guidebook is designed to transform gameplay in ways that empower players to create their own motivations and goals, then proactively pursue them – in effect, guiding the narrative of their characters, rather than having the Game Master do it. Traditional TTRPGs have for decades relied on reactive player responses in order to function. In other words, there is an evil wizard out to take over the world. The player characters are good, therefore it’s their duty to go stop the wizard. Game play then follows a traditional storytelling narrative of protagonists working to return their world back to the status quo, or an improved position. Bad guy makes a move, good guys move to stop him. The problem with this style of gameplay is that players are always reacting to what’s put in front of them.

Their agency is almost always directed toward fixing a problem they had nothing to do with before it appeared. This makes gameplay less creative for the players, since they don’t really have to do much thinking beyond solving the problem at hand. In short, it can get tiresome for all involved, dealing with the same pattern of evildoer action/heroic reaction each and every time they play. This style of gameplay also puts the onus of effort on the Game Master to create the conflicts that the players will respond to, creating materials in advance for various locations and characters that drive the narrative for the players, setting up specific story points that need to happen in order for the players to reach the climax of the tale, etc.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

This practical, much needed guide will give readers the tools to reevaluate their personal relationship with technology and change their digital habits for the better

While technology has undoubtedly made our lives easier, it's also allowed us to develop bad digital habits along the way. Unfortunately, the same tech tools that make life so much easier are also competing for our attention - all the time - and we’re giving it to them. The result? We’re becoming less productive by fueling our tendency towards procrastination and reinforcing how disconnected we feel from ourselves, our loved ones and reality. In this vein, Your Best Digital Life shows readers how to stop, reevaluate and take control of their digital lives. It presents a new approach to digital wellbeing based on the authors’ “MORE” methodology (Mobilize. Observe. Reflect. Experiment.) Drawing on the latest research on mindfulness, psychology and neuroscience, this guide will show readers how to put this method into action and allow them to adopt a flexible, forgiving, and realistic approach to using technology. The book will comprise approximately 10 chapters, all covering different aspects of digital wellbeing with first person stories and scientific factoids woven throughout, plus exercises for the reader to put the techniques into action.

Jonathan Garner is the founder of Mind Over Tech and a 20-year practitioner of Buddhist meditation. Menka Sanghvi is the host of Mind Over Tech’s podcast, policy advisor at The Mindfulness Initiative, and a trustee of the global wellbeing charity Breathworks. Both authors have garnered multiple accolades and press, while Mind over Tech has been singled out for even more accolades and awards, partnering with leading global organizations like Google, The Guardian, Vodafone, and the NHS to train thousands of people using the MORE methodology.

Anthony Bourdain Unloaded Raw Quotes and Uncommon Wisdom from

a Legendary Provocateur

On Sale Date: Winter 2025

ISBN: 9781956403725

Retail: $15.99 US

Page Count: 144

Format: Hardcover

This fascinating book showcases the acerbic wit, the uncompromising opinions and the uncommon wisdom of Anthony Bourdain – passionate foodie, opinionated explorer ands ardonic storyteller.

To quote the man himself, Anthony Bourdain once bragged he could “unload my opinion on anybody at any time." And that he did. His entire life seemed like a compendium of insightful (sometimes inflammatory) quotes, witty observations and touching moments he shared openly with the world. As prodigious as his quips and quotes have become, they all have two things in common: 1. They grab your attention.

2. The man was never at a loss for words or an opinion. Bourdain’s unusual perspective was born out of decades of listening, tasting, writing and adventuring, allowing him to opine on everything from food to politics - with the same high level of enthusiasm. Regardless of the success he achieved, Bourdain’s stance was always that of a perpetual outsider who made it a point to embrace underrepresented voices, cultures, ideas and, yes, food. He found fame as a cook, a tv host and writer all while he circled the globe in search of more - encouraging his fans to take chances, step out of their comfort zones, and not just accept differences, but celebrate them. This handsome book collects the edgiest, wittiest, most revealing of Bourdain’s quotes in one highly desirable package..

Find Your Wine

A Fun and Easy Guide to Selecting the Right Wine, Every Time

THIS POPULIST GUIDE to wine dispenses with the overly complex minutia associated with regions and varietals, and teaches readers how to select, describe, pair, buy and discuss wine with ease and confidence using simple flavor profiles.

Unique Selling Point: This book is designed for readers who love wine, and want to know how to choose wines with skill and insight, but find the complexities of the subject overwhelming and intimidating.

Why Buy: This guide takes the complex language associated with wine and boils it down to a simpler, more common approach focused on flavor above all else. It’s a new approach to wine that anyone can master in a short period of time, presented in an inexpensive, design-driven package. This is a book that beginner wine drinkers and millennials, in particular would find appealing. Wine is the favored drink of millennials, who drink almost half of the wine available in the U.S., even though millennials only comprise one quarter of the adults over 21 in the U.S. (per the Wine Market Council). Business Insider reports that millennials’ demand for on-demand wine has “led to the rise of wine delivery and check-in apps, as well as products that promote convenience, like wine sold in a can.”

The Official John Wayne Handy Book For Boys

If there’s one thing John Wayne admired, it was someone who could stand on their own two feet and take care of themselves no matter what the day might bring. Parents who know Wayne (and there are millions of them) admire those skills as well and feel strongly about raising their boys to be just as self-reliant. Similarly, boys are interested in learning how to camp, hike, explore and have adventures of their own. At the same time, they’re struggling to learn how to effectively transition to adulthood. The Official John Wayne Handy Book for Boys helps them learn both the outdoor skills they need to adventure safely, but also the life skills they need to navigate the real world like responsible young men.

The book includes 100 essential skills, tips, activities and lessons for outdoor fun, responsible, safe adventures and real-world competence. Lessons are fully explained and enhanced with full color step-by-step illustrations where needed. From camping and fishing to managing their money and everything in between, readers will discover four big sections covering a range of topics, including Outdoor Skills, Self-Sufficiency at Home, Acting Upwards and Fun & Games.
