About me

Be prepared for a curated experience fitting your character and your playstyle. Role-play heavy sessions are a specialty, and crucial information that only your character knows may be the key to saving the world. Kyle has been a professional GM since 2019 at Critical Hit Gaming Lounge, a boardgame cafe. He's run 500+ games, over a dozen successful campaigns (no TPKs so far!) and multiple 36-player tournament events in the Dungeons and Dragons 5E ruleset. Kyle also runs games for DMs, to give them a chance to let their hair down and smite some goblins. He's also GM'd over a dozen games for Kobold Press at Gen Con 2022 & 2023 in Indianapolis. Whether you're a new player or had the original little brown books, there's a seat for you at the table.

GM style

I use Alchemy RPG as a visual immersive experience with music, sound & motion effects, along with Discord for audio during games. I'm also experienced with in-person tabletop gaming, where I use a combination of theatre-of-the-mind (roleplaying) and Dwarven Forge (terrain) with miniatures to immerse my players in the setting.
