About me

Hello Everyone! As a thirty-year GM with system mastery of Pathfinder: Second Edition I can offer a narratively rich experience for 4-5 hours a session in each of my weekly and bi-weekly games. I am a published author and game designer (Red Brick Games, Earthdawn; Requiem) with a degree in 'game design' (creative writing, literature, and design) and a passion for roleplaying games. I've been playing the game since I was eleven years old, and have run through every phase from hyper-excitable tween through irritable hack-and-slash teen to theatre-obsessed LARP-nerd and beyond. I truly believe there's a table for every player, and I love putting together exciting stories for the players that sit at mine. Welcome to Golarion! A tapestry world created by a half-dozen GM s stomping their way through D&D3.5, Golarion has grown and evolved into an incredibly deep world-setting. Pirates of the Shackles, the native Shoanti struggling against the Chelaxian devils who have invaded them, resurfacing Runelords fighting to claim ancient lands, and all set to the tune of a world in which a god died and prophecy shattered... Golarion offers a framework for characters from humble bakers and heroic bards to star-tossed travelers from psychic worlds lost amidst the high fantasy of lich-ruled kingdoms and rebellious fae. The Pathfinder: Second Edition game system uses three actions per round to allow for customized activities from modular spellcasting to complicated martial attacks, broken down into a system of explicit conditions and minimalist modifiers. The game is easy to learn, with very little ambiguity, and I've taught dozens of players the ins and outs since the game went live in 2019. I will absolutely hold new players' hands to help them get situated with a brand new system, and I am always available for questions and requests. My goal by the end is to have you so comfortable with the game that you'll be able to ask to make specific rolls when you think something might apply! I'm DM Jacob on Fantasy Confections' Discord Server, and joining my table means a spot in the friendly, LGBTQIA+ community there. Fantasy Confections is a partnership of GMs helping each other to be the best we can be. We check each others' work, help brainstorm new ideas, and generally push each other to provide customer service as professional GMs, and offer the best gaming bang for your gaming buck. You can contact me at any time through discord @ CopaKindred !
