Being the Narrator is a gratifying and rewarding experience, but that doesn’t make it easy. This chapter is a trove of advice for running Level Up to be as engaging, enjoyable, memorable, and worthwhile as possible with a focus on two aspects of play: player archetypes and safety tools. When the group isn’t getting along, the party is led astray, or the campaign goes off track Narrators are encouraged to try to better understand the players, focusing on what they’re enthusiastic about so the story and gameplay better suit their passions. Cooperative games like Level Up are just that: cooperative. Whether gripping with mature themes or much more light-hearted quests, safety tools are an essential part of keeping everyone at the table happy and coming back for more.
