About me

I'm a DM with over 20 years of experience who's been playing since 2nd Edition and I strongly believe that the player's write the story with their choices and decisions, I'm just the editor that makes sure every player is getting the role they want in the story. While I sometimes may be using published materials, I'll often tailor the module to the players. This means that your choices in character creation will help shape the story, and veterans who may have played the adventure before might get a surprise or two! I believe in RAW and RAI, meaning your spells and abilities will do what they say they do, but I also support and encourage creative applications as well. I won't punish you for your build or your creativity, instead I'll find ways to make you feel challenged and awesome! I'm a fan of rich, fulfilling narratives, memorable characters with unique personalities and stories that will change based on your decisions, but I'm also a seasoned vet who's fought a battle or two and loves dynamic tactical combat. Depending on who is in the group and what your preference is, we can focus on either (or both!). We can play a session without a single roll of a die, or we can wage glorious battle through a gauntlet of cunning foes. The game you want is the game I'll bring to you!

GM style

I like to tailor my campaigns to the desires of the party. I'm as comfortable doing large set piece tactical battles as I am spending an entire session having a dinner party with a mysterious NPC. I provide most NPCs with distinct voices and characterizations, like to emphasize description of environments and characters and encourage player's to do so as well. I believe in sticking mostly RAW and RAI, but am flexible if the scene or campaign calls for it. Usually this means bending rules for interesting or challenging outcomes rather than allowing Munchkins to manipulate loopholes. I am comfortable running classic dungeon crawls, sandbox hexmap explorations, epic fantasy narratives with OC plot hooks and/or deep intrigue or political campaigns. Tell me what experience you're looking for and I will work to make it happen, or trust me and I'll curate an experience you won't soon forget. Above all, I want to create fun and memorable challenges for players that make them feel like they've accomplished things through their wits and efforts. If you take risks, you will be rewarded.
