Take a chance, roll the dice

I have to tell ya… this thing is chock-full of incredible places, characters, stats & soooo much more! It takes the guessing game out of creating last minute adventures for your players too! This bundle was affordable and highly recommend all the DM’s out there to snag up these books!

So worth it

Just ran "Trial and Error" out of this and it was wonderful!! Took barely half an hour to prep and feel fully ready to run it, and my players were so impressed by it.

DM life saver

Anyone who says this is too expensive is wrong, this book is worth atleast 2 official source books. A life saver, well written, well presented. This book is exceptional.

Thank you

For Christmas our adult gaming group pooled our money to buy my husband, the forever DM, a copy of One Shot Wonders, and it is now part of our invaluable tools set that we bring to the table. The ideas art and layout makes it so easy to use. We have used several of the adventures with the kids too and every one has been a huge success!

He ran the "Fight at the Museum" adventure with an hour prep time, and 35 minutes of that was designing and printing maps using Dungeon Alchemist. Frequently I will steal the adventure from our group to use with my teen group.

Basically, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all the inspirational content you have created.


Roll & Play Press was born out of a desire to create GM tools we wanted to use in our own games! Everything we make is designed to make life easier for RPG players.
