About me

Greetings Adventurers! My name is Shane and I have been a GM for over 15 years. I currently reside in the frozen north of America aka Minnesota (CST). My background is in theater performance, I love nothing more then being in front of people telling stories, which is why I became a GM in the first place. I have experience in a number of systems but my passion is for D&D 5E and SWADE (Savage Worlds Adventure edition) I have run home games in the past and run one from home now, but have been primarily a virtual GM since 2013. My Goal as a GM is to be fun and approachable. I love talking to and helping people, even if it's outside of usual game time. I am up for discussing things while I am online. I love being given feedback and critiqued, so I welcome players to tell me how they think I am doing and offer up suggestions. I want the game to be fun for everyone involved and think it's important that everyone has some creative input on the campaign. I await our meeting to begin weaving wonderous tales of adventure together!


GM style

I am a jack of all trades GM. I love getting deep into the story, while also hashing out some sweet combat. For me the perfect game balances both of these elements so there's a little bit of everything for everyone. I don't have a ton of experience with puzzles or similarly designed challenges, though I am down to learn and work with anyone who is interested. I love introducing new players into the expansive worlds and find it rewarding too. I also love the grizzled vets who've seen a mind flayer or two and maybe have some battle scars. Overall, I just want to have a fun time with great adventurers and spin together a really cool story.
