About me

The best compliment I ever got from a former co-worker was, "David, the thing I'll remember most about you is playing Pathfinder". Hi there, my name's David, and I didn't ask to be a game master, I just am one. My obsession with TTRPGs goes back farther than I can remember. Around 2013 I began game mastering in the Pathfinder Society. Since then, I have started groups with co-workers, friends, and family. This has given me experience as a GM for new and veteran players alike, across a wide range of ages.

GM style

My ultimate goal in any game is for everyone to have fun. Of course this is different for everyone. I work with my players to make sure I can address what they want out of the game. Striving for the desire balance between combat, social situations, puzzles, and intrigue. The game system has a profound impact on this. Looking for something crunchy and tactically intense? Pathfinder is a great option Looking for group story telling where combat with the BBEG could be a social interaction? Fate's got you covered In addition to what the game play should feel like, I also work with players for the appropriate cadence to fit with people's busy schedule. Monster of the week style adventures provide a natural way for players to drop in and out week by week. While a group of players with more consistent schedules may enjoy the freedom of a sandbox campaign, or a classic style adventure that takes a year or more to complete.
