I’m excited to announce Engine Publishing‘s next system-neutral book for GMs, Unframed: The Art of Improvisation for Game Masters!

Unframed is an anthology of essays on improvisation featuring the work of 23 game designers, authors, and experienced GMs — including seven of our own gnomes. Improvisation is a core skill for GMs — and players — no matter what games they run or how they run them, and I hope this book will be useful to you.

Unframed has been written, edited, and proofread, and layout is 98% done. I’ll be indexing it while it gets a second round of proofreading, and then we should be good to go to open preorders in early June.

For now, a teaser: Unframed’s cover, by Christopher Reach. (You can also see a larger version.)

I’ll be back in a few days with the next teaser: the author list. Stay tuned!
