Welcome to the Official Website of Monte Cook

I’m Monte Cook. I’ve been a writer for 25 years. Most of that time, I’ve designed tabletop roleplaying games, but I’ve also published novels, short stories, comics, and nonfiction. Feel free to check out my blog, The Chapel Perilous, my various projects, or my two different game publishing imprints, Monte Cook Games and Malhavoc Press.

I ran some more OD&D a little while ago. It was a short session, and even though it was 100% dungeon crawl, there were only two fights. Moreover, they were pretty unexciting battles. It was a great session. How can this be? Allow me to explain.
