About me

Hey everyone (and I mean EVERYONE)! I am an enby Dungeon Master with a love for storytelling! I hope that you consider joining my campaign, which will tailor to your wants for character growth while maintaining a rough story structure. I am also extremely open to disabled, LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC players of all backgrounds. In a perfect world, I would do this as my only source of income...but for now I work two part-time jobs to pay the bills. This means that my schedule will have to be malleable. If enough of you join and support my business, I'll only do one other job and make more time for this.

GM style

My style of storytelling is just that - STORYTELLING! Many of my stories are written as very complex and thoughtful. This is not for the faint of heart or new players, though anyone is welcome to join and give it a go. Players will experience the world through the eyes of their characters and come up with intuitive ways to solve difficult ethical and philosophical questions that they are faced with. I also have a degree in Religious Studies and Philosophy, so many of the stories I tell involve components of stories from world religions or themes that involve religious metaphor. While combat is a part of TTRPGs, D&D always felt somewhat unnatural in the way that fighting mechanics work. People don't just fight their way out of problems. Using game mechanics from a variety of TTRPGs, we will apply the most appropriate mechanism to the situation at hand. The benefit of a GM with my experience is that you will experience the game in ways that you never thought possible. You will learn your character and connect with them emotionally. These hard ethical questions will stay with you when you aren't playing and hopefully spark a positive change in the way that you think. And more, the benefit is that you can try things that other systems won't permit. If you think of an action to take (within reason), we will find a way to make it work with the mechanics of the game.
