About me

Hi there, and welcome to Start Playing Games. I'm Nick, or as I usually go online, Cake. Currently specializing in PF2e, I've personally run the system since its inception in the playtests, and before that was a 1e GM since 2009. I've seen or run just about every 1st party campaign in both systems and love converting those older games to newer, smoother systems. That's not to say I don't know any other systems, having run Warhammer, 5e, World of Darkness, and even GURPS. I've GMed for hundreds of people from all walks of life over the years, and love making the experiences something that everyone looks forward to. Feel free to join the Discord server ahead of time! Custom games, stories, and worlds are all available by private commission.
