About the adventure

Are you looking to pump up your combat description? Maybe work on how to manage multiple storylines? How about just describing events and NPCs more vibrantly, or dealing with a tricky situation at the table? This is the place. I'm an Ennie-award winning designer with worldbuilding credits at multiple publishers, and my essays have appeared on Enworld and in Kobold Press' Guide to Gamemastery. The door is open, the chair is available, let's talk about your game.

How to prepare

You should have an idea of what you want to discuss-- is it a tricky plotline, is it outlining your setting material, is it spinning up a playtest?

What I provide

I'm bringing you 35 years of RPG experience, 15 Gencons, 6 Ennies, and over 100 publications. If I don't know, I know where to ask.
