About me

I have been running and playing tabletop games since I was a teenager (over 25 years of experience) including frequent convention play and heavy experience crafting an experience geared towards new players. I am also the coauthor of a SIlver level seller trilogy of 5th edition adventures, with several other design projects coming, including a new TTRPG system- so I am very experienced in the overall mechanics and tricks of different playstyles and designing an experience to appeal to any player. My style is heavily story driven, with a personal love for interesting plot twists and turning standard RPG tropes on their head, but that doesn't mean I can't come up with a challenging combat scenario to push your understanding of strategy as well- it all depends on the experience the players are looking for. My games are designed to be safe for members of all communities, and will heavily feature diverse characters and experiences.

GM style

Heavily story driven, with interesting combat scenarios and the occasional fun voice or two. I can also create a compelling dungeon crawl, or experience spent heavy in research or exploration, driven by what the players are looking for in a game.
