About me

Why not? I have been an avid RPG fan for most of my life, but primarily through video and board games (which I still love.) There were always faults and constraints as you would constantly encounter the "invisible walls" that the the designers would understandably force you to stay in. It was incredible when not too many years ago I finally said, "why not?" and decided to give TTRPG's a go, where imaginations could run wild and no longer be constrained by these artificial walls. Quickly it became readily apparent that in order to continue playing, I would need to become the DM for my group of friends. Once again I said to myself, "why not?" I have not turned back as some of the greatest stories and experiences originated with each passing session. Constantly meeting every crazy opportunity and circumstance with the now proclaimed mission statement of, "Why Not!?" I embrace every story, campaign and session with the mantra that there are no walls and no reason to stifle the imagination of my players or myself. I bring constant attention and preparation, but won't hesitate to ride the rails right off into something completely different and new. So, what do you say?
