About me

Hails! My name is Chris and I am The Bumbling Wizard. I’ve always had an intense love for gaming and storytelling from a young age. So when I said yes to my very first session of Pathfinder in 2013, it revealed a new magic to me that I never wanted to end. After a year as a player I took my first step behind the GM screen. It didn’t take long to realize that’s the role I enjoy the most. As your GM, I look forward to presenting you with challenging situations and working out the results of your decisions in dynamic, meaningful ways. The excitement of watching you and your group come together as a team to solve problems (with maybe a few bumbles along the way) is the thing that keeps me coming back for more. In any scenario, from pitched combat to intense social exchanges or cautious exploration, I strive to make sure your choices matter. That's where the real magic is at. Planning adventures and running them for passionate adventurers is one of my favorite things to do. That’s why I want to run a game for you, with you, together. I can’t wait to see what kind of story we create.

GM style

Every game, player and group is different. I enjoy getting to know every player’s preferences and play style over time, and adapting the game accordingly. 🧙🏻‍♂️I strive to provide: Engaging, dynamic combat. Thoughtful, meaningful social encounters. Tense, rewarding exploration. 🧙🏻‍♂️Your choices matter: I approach every adventure like a dungeon. Whether it’s exploring rooms, overland travel or rubbing elbows with NPCs, maintaining pacing is key. Nothing is a forgone conclusion. Situations and outcomes respond and change according to player input. 🧙🏻‍♂️My table is a place for: Players of differing expertise and time investment. Experienced and new players. Learning as you go, through play. 🧙🏻‍♂️My games are a team sport: Character conflict within context is okay. Deliberate subversion of other players or their characters is not. In character, cooperate. Out of character, be cool to each other. Do that and we’ll all have a good time!
