Thanks for reading Mike Bourke‘s blog about gaming. Campaign Mastery is a place for tabletop RPG enthusiasts to discuss the art of game mastering and campaigning.

Material Connections

We take pride in the reputation and credibility of our site and will never recommend a product which doesn’t measure up for the purposes of use that we describe. Nevertheless, it is always prudent to assume that, as authors and publishers of the website, we may have an affiliate relationship or other material connection to the providers of goods and services that we recommend or link to on the site and may be compensated when you purchase a product that we bring to your attention.

You should always make whatever checks and perform whatever due diligence you consider necessary before buying goods and services from anyone over the Internet or offline.

And if you have a bad experience buying or using something we’ve recommended, we want to know about it! We might not be able to help you, but your cautionary tale might just help the next person to come along – and helps us to preserve that reputation and credibility.

Reviews Policy

While any product or kickstarter campaign offered for review will be considered, we make no commitments or promises to actually review any such product or proposed product except on a case-by-case basis. When we do accept a review, that review will be as honest and unbiased as possible, in keeping with the Review Ethics described in The Ethical Reviewer.

We welcome and encourage the authors, editors, publishers and creators of the products and proposed products that we review to respond to the published comments and any criticisms that we might have through the comments section, and will happily update a review if we feel it is justified (ie if we stuffed it up the first time around).

As a guideline and context to our reviews, we would also like to point to this article Value for money and the pricing of RPG materials – Part 1 of 2 and Part 2 of 2 which (indirectly) explains the standards that will be applied to any product reviewed.

Comments Policy

We love comments on this blog, and your comments are welcome and appreciated. Please read our policies before leaving a comment.

Comment Moderation

To maintain the friendliness, spirit of sharing, and the integrity of the blog and its content, all comments, trackbacks, and pingbacks made to the blog are moderated. Mike and Johnn review comments regularly for approval, but there might be some occasional delays before you see your comment posted.


Spam will be eliminated at the moderation stage to the best of our ability. When Spam reaches unacceptable levels, our anti-spam policy as described in Fighting The Spam War will be activated. This may compromise some readers’ ability to view the site. We apologize in advance to anyone caught in the crossfire for the inconvenience, as assure you that normal services will be restored as quickly as possible.


This blog has a diverse audience with different sensibilities and opinions. Please avoid harsh language and the use of profanity. Flaming or use of threatening language is not allowed nor will it be tolerated.

Comment Rights

We reserve the right to edit or delete comments. We will rarely edit a comment, but will do so if we think it will help clear up ambiguities or issues.

You, and only you, are responsible for your words. By posting your comments to the blog you are granting us the right, in perpetuity, to use, alter, and/or display them however we see fit without recompense, including using your comments in other media, publications, and commercial endeavours. For example, we might use your comment in an ebook, and though we will not pay you for your comment, we may list you – with thanks – in a contributors section.

By posting a comment you agree to indemnify, Mike Bourke, and Johnn Four from and against all liabilities, judgments, damages, and costs (including attorney’s fees) incurred by any of them that arise out of or are related to the content that you post.

We respect the copyrights of others and ask that comments not contain material copyrighted by someone else, though you are welcome to link out to other sites.
