About me

Hello, adventurers! I come to you bearing stories of fearsome monsters, terrible foes, and legendary artifacts! Take your seats around the table and add your names and deeds to these tales, that you may be remembered as heroes! My name's Ben and I have been DMing for almost 30 years now. I have extensive experience with Dungeons & Dragons across various editions, and I am especially familiar with 5th edition. I also run other systems and genres, including sci-fi, super heroes, and modern fantasy. I'm a big believer in collaborative storytelling, and I like weaving characters into a campaign's story. I run adventures ranging in scope from personal to epic, depending on what the players are looking for, and I enjoy combat just as much as role-play. I have all supplements available in D&D Beyond and a Pro membership on Roll20, with over 700 hours played. I'm familiar with many of the advanced lighting features on Roll20, and I use several tools to create custom encounter maps and tokens. Whether you're looking for a tough-as-nails tactical challenge, a complex web of intrigue, or something in between, I'm the DM that can conjure up the perfect game for you and your friends.


GM style

I love all aspects of RPGs. I love sprawling stories, complex heroes, compelling villains, dynamic combat encounters, and social intrigue. I'm not great at voices, but I still try to make NPCs unique, memorable, and interesting. I am very flexible as a DM. I can run games for almost any group and adapt my style to suit the players' preferences.
