About me

Hi, I'm Jonathan! I've been around TTRPGs for my entire life. I love them a lot! It fills me with joy to tell stories together with others and have fun together! I've joined StartPlaying as a GM because I have too many worlds and stories I want to tell, and not enough friends to share them with... yet. I've been around games a lot, with both veteran players, and people completely new to table top games. I'm good at adapting to my players, providing challenges and new ideas for experienced players, and a welcoming casual environment for new players. With a background in theater and writing, my games tend to focus on storytelling and Role-Play, with an emphasis on emotional character growth that ties into the plot. That said, I do enjoy game mechanics and can provide fun opportunities to those more interested in the math and numbers of the game. But most importantly, I bring new and unique ideas into games. If you're interested in compelling settings inspired by history and mythology that you've never seen before, come play with me! I'll take you on some truly excellent adventures!

GM style

My GM style has an emphasis on roleplay, and emotional journeys for the Player Characters. I enjoy bringing about significant NPCs and climactic decisions that shape the story. As a result, my games can feature a lot of tension, similar to heist, suspense, or drama media, where the possibility of an altercation or decision is oftentimes more memorable than the actual combat encounters. That said, I also bring my best when describing scenes, especially combat. My style usually means that the mental image of action scenes is highly cinematic.
