About me

Greetings, adventurers! Allow me to introduce myself as Bilge Goblin, the Game Master (IRL AL). With over a decade of experience in Tabletop Roleplaying games, I have honed my skills to provide you with an immersive and enjoyable gaming experience. It is essential for you to know right from the start that I follow the RULE OF COOL, as long as it doesn't detract from everyone's fun. You might wonder why I became a Game Master and why I adore it so much! Well, truth be told, I became a dedicated Game Master ever since my first session in D&D :D. As a Game Master, I am highly adaptable when it comes to character creation choices. I am willing to approve your character concept as long as you can support it with a well-crafted backstory (subject to DM approval). If you have any inquiries or need clarification, please feel free to send me a friend request on Discord. I am always eager to engage with new people and discuss your questions or ideas. Wishing you thrilling adventures and do remember to quench your thirst with some Grog along the way! :D

GM style

Allow me to share with you the guiding principles that define my Game Mastering style: 1. Player-Centric Approach: My utmost priority is the enjoyment and satisfaction of my players. While storytelling is important, I prioritize player impact and engagement. I actively encourage out-of-the-box thinking and reward daring decisions, high-stakes gambling, and unforgettable moments. 2. Embracing the Rule of Cool: While I possess a thorough understanding of the rules, I also recognize the value of flexibility. If ever I encounter a situation where a rule may be forgotten or doesn't quite fit, I lean towards what feels right and enhances the cool factor of the moment. Excitement and enjoyment take precedence. 3. Collaboration, not Competition: It's vital to establish that I'm not here to pit myself against the players. As the Game Master, I assume the role of both judge and executioner, but above all, I am your number one supporter and fan. I am invested in your success and strive to create a cooperative environment where victory is a shared experience. By adhering to these principles, I aim to create a dynamic and engaging gaming experience that prioritizes your enjoyment, celebrates creativity, and fosters a sense of camaraderie.
