We RPG game masters have a lot of tools to help us run our role-playing games. Our monster books and bestiaries give us piles of foes to throw at our adventurers. The various guides for game masters often give us non-player characters, treasures, and story-building tips. One of the hardest parts of game mastering, however, is coming up with interesting adventure locations for our characters to explore. These locations need to be fantastic, detailed places that capture the minds of our players every session we run. Good locations are hard to improvise and often hard to strip out of a fully fleshed-out adventure. Sly Flourish´s Fantastic Locations is an audiobook of 20 system-agnostic locations you can drop into your favorite fantasy role-playing game. Each location builds on a fantastic theme, such as a mysterious ancient structure under the ice, a cursed castle of a mad king, a fallen celestial fortress, or a dwarven mine that cracked into the tomb of a dead god. Thanks to the support of 779 backers on Kickstarter, this audiobook was expanded to include a total of 20 locations each with full-color artwork included as a PDF along with this audiobook. This audiobook helps you fill your mind with the lore of these fantastic locations so you can build fantastic worlds for your players.

Marcus Sidonius Falx is an average Roman citizen. Born of a relatively well-off noble family, he lives on a palatial estate in Campania, dines with senators and generals, and, like all of his ancestors before him, owns countless slaves. Having spent most of his life managing his servants - many of them prisoners from Rome´s military conquests - he decided to write a kind of owner´s manual for his friends and countrymen. The result, The Roman Guide to Slave Management, is a sly, subversive guide to the realities of servitude in ancient Rome. Cambridge scholar Jerry Toner uses Falx, his fictional but true-to-life creation, to describe where and how to Romans bought slaves, how they could tell an obedient worker from a troublemaker, and even how the ruling class reacted to the inevitable slave revolts. Toner also adds commentary throughout, analyzing the callous words and casual brutality of Falx and his compatriots and putting it all in context for the modern listener. Written with a deep knowledge of ancient culture - and the depths of its cruelty - this is the Roman Empire as you´ve never seen it before. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian. 1. Russian.

Jane Austen is more of a celebrity and media queen now. As a forensic observer of the social scene, with a mordant wit, and a sly way of puncturing pretension and seeing past the social facade, there is no doubt that if she had been with us today, she would have had her own column in an upmarket glossy a stylish, smart cookie agony aunt.

When John Huston died at 81 on August 28, 1987, America lost a towering figure in movie history. The director of such classic films as The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The African Queen, The Maltese Falcon, Prizzi´s Honor, and The Dead, John Huston evoked passionate responses from everyone he encountered. He was at the center of a dynasty, with three generations of Oscar winners (Walter, John and Anjelica). Now, for the first time as an audiobook, the complete story of this remarkable family is told in The Hustons by Lawrence Grobel. The book chronicles the family´s history - from Walter´s days on the vaudeville circuit and his later fame on Broadway, through John´s meteoric rise, to Anjelica´s emergence as a great actress in film today. Grobel interviewed John Huston for over 100 hours and conducted 200 interviews with John´s four children, three of his five wives, many of his mistresses, producers, writers, technicians, and a number of celebrities who rarely grant interviews. J.P. Donleavy named The Hustons the best book of the year when it was published. James A. Michener dubbed it a ´´Masterpiece.´´ Kirkus called it ´´Spellbinding.´´ Larry King thought it, ´´Biography writing at its absolute best.´´ Frederick Raphael wrote, ´´The Hustons is a delicious, wicked guide to the delicious, wicked life of a sly, sadistic scoundrel who was equaled only by Byron in the sentimental cynicism and fecund carelessness with which he played the world´s game.´´ Alyn Brodsky in The Miami Herald called it, ´´An engrossing study in family dynamics… Marvelous… This is one of the best biographies of a Hollywood personality since - actually, I can´t recall since when.´´ And the Hollywood Reporter said it ´´Reads like a gutsy movie that might have been made by Huston himself.´´ 1.

Motherlunge is an eloquent and irreverent debut audiobook about first sex, true love, chronic sibling rivalry; it´s about the deepest fear of young (and not-so-young) adulthood: the fear of inheriting a disappointing life. It´s motherly advice, too - featuring wigs, dogs, road trips, and medicine - a guide to the essential experiences of being female, ´´born unto a librarian, named for the goddess of sight´´, waiting for the future to arrive. With sly wit and surprising joy, Motherlunge considers the flaws in the family line and celebrates the promise that staggers alongside. Funny and smart…in Thea and those around her Scott has created characters we believe in and wish well, characters who feel real - strange and sad and happy, like real people are. 1.
