Unframed preview three: The table of contents

For this week’s preview of our next book, Unframed: The Art of Improvisation for Game Masters, I’m going to share the table of contents.

It may not be as sexy as a full-page illustration, but I always check out the table of contents when I’m interested in a book — it’s a great way to get a feel for what’s inside. I’ll let Unframed’s TOC speak for itself:
