About me

37 years ago at the time of this writing, my teacher thought it appropriate to inform my mother that I was illiterate. My mother, in an attempt to help, bought me 5 Hardy Boy's books, promised me $5 for reading each as long as I could write down what the story was about etc. A week later my mother handed me $25 and told me she wasn't paying me for reading anymore and angrily wrote my teacher. That $25 bought me the Dungeons & Dragons basic set (red box, horrible dice, needed crayons to fill the #'s)... Through AD&D (orange spines) and AD&D 2nd edition and way way way too many books to count. I have been on Hiatus for a long time but have never lost my creative spark or capacity to tell great stories! Looking for hardy souls, rotten scoundrels, epic heroes and villains alike for upcoming sci-fi adventures in imaginary places from long, long ago...

GM style

I try to keep things moving at a steady pace, with occasional sprints and mad dashes to the finish line. As a GM I have always been incredibly accommodating to the needs of the group and individual players and will take any if not all opportunities to exploit those for story progression. Combat will be as simplified or complicated as the "group" wants. Themes will vary based on the game, campaign, system and so forth. I may try to make up voices and if I do, you will likely laugh (at me). My games are an inclusive place for every and anyone to feel free to express themselves and have a great time. That being said my games are NOT PG-13 and adult language can be expected. Lines / Veils / Limits will be discussed and agreed upon at the beginning of every session
