About me

I am a seasoned Game Master with a treasure trove of pre-published adventure settings across various rulesets, as well as custom campaign settings and adventures crafted to captivate both you and your characters. Whether you’re a group in need of a new Game Master or players seeking a spot in a long-term campaign, I’m here to guide your journey. All experience levels are welcome at my table. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a seasoned veteran, there’s a place for you. If you’ve never played an RPG before or it’s been years since your last game, don’t worry—I’ll teach you everything you need to know. For those who play frequently, I have plenty of exciting content to keep you engaged. Want to start a game for your family or your children and their friends? I offer both day and evening slots to fit your schedule. With over 40 years of gaming experience, I began my journey with the original AD&D Basic set. Since then, I’ve played and GM’ed countless games and campaigns, including 1st Edition AD&D, 2nd Edition AD&D, 3.5, 5e, Pathfinder, and Pathfinder 2e, among others. I run games both play-by-post on Myth-Weavers and in real life, as well as via Fantasy Grounds VTT. Curious about what to expect? Just ask any of my players! Reviews are available on my GM page and from the 100+ active and former players on my Discord channel. Feel free to request an invite and join our community today. Let’s embark on an epic adventure together! 🏰🗡️🛡️

GM Style My storytelling style is a blend of old-school charm and adaptability, tailored to the audience. I prioritize the spirit of the rules (RAI) over the letter of the rules (RAW) and excel at open-world storylines that allow players to explore at their own pace. I focus on character development through backstories and take the time to understand my players’ preferences to tailor my approach. Whether your group prefers action-packed adventures or deep roleplay and political intrigue, I can accommodate both styles. Thank you for considering my services. I look forward to embarking on an epic adventure with you! Have a wonderful day. 🌟
