About me

Greetings from frozen Ottawa! The rules should support the story - not *be* the story. If you want a roleplay-focused game steeped in mystery, occultism, conspiracy theories, danger, and true crime then I'm your Game Master! I've been playing TTRPGs for over twenty years, and for the last five years I've been running more than I've played. To this date I've written and run campaigns for D&D, FFG Star Wars, Zweihander, Mork Borg, Esoterrorists, GUMSHOE, and more! My games adhere firmly to the "rule of cool", and my settings are designed to make your characters feel like they have a real mystery to unravel. I prefer to run games that focus more on role playing, investigation, narrative, and setting rather than than crunchy rules lawyering. New players are absolutely welcome! The games I've been running lately use such quality indie systems as Gumshoe (Esoterrorists and Night's Black Agents), Mork Borg, and Mothership. While I prefer modern and sci-fi settings, I'm happy to run most settings. I prefer to host games that are theatre of the mind with handouts rather than battle maps, and my games are generally run over Discord. Character voices are highly encouraged! I will help you make your characters, and slowly introduce new rules if you're unfamiliar with the system we're using. My tables are intended on being safe and inclusive for all players while still involving mature (but not explicit) themes. If you have specific triggers, concerns, or limits I am more than happy to discuss these and keep them out of play. You are invited to explore an interesting and immersive world crafted for you and your character to play in. Regardless of setting, rule set, or theme, the most important part of any TTRPG session is FUN! I don't have my social media listed publicly, but you are encouraged to hit that "Contact" button if you have any questions. Please excuse any cameos by the various animals that occupy my home :)
