About me

šŸ‘‹ Hi, I'm Danil, an experienced professional Gamemaster. ā­ļø I specialize in running tailored narrative-first adventures, where we focus on building the story together and use mechanics to support it, not vice versa. šŸ¤ In my games, you matter: your choices (both in- and out of character) shape our games together. šŸ’š We have an amazing community of players where you will feel at home! I am experienced in various game systems. If none of the currently listed games catch your eye, please reach out to me. I'm more than happy to collaborate with you and create a customized gaming experience tailored to your preferences. Let's work together to make your gaming dreams a reality! More about me: I am an data engineer by day, so I am fairly tech-savvy ā€” a skill I use to create a smooth experience for you. This also means any technical issues (which are a reality of playing online) will be resolved in a timely manner. I became a gamemaster because of my passion for collaborative storytelling: there is nothing quite like the feeling of connection that the roleplaying games create! But really, I enjoy most aspects of TTRPGs, and I play and run a wide variety of them. I put a lot of effort and passion into my craft, and I'm sure that you will see how this dedicated and organized approach shines through everything I do. I offer well-rounded and balanced games that feature both immersive, high-quality roleplay and exhilarating, meticulously crafted challenges that require strategic thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork. I am approachable, personable and have a great sense of humor. I also understand pacing and tension very well ā€” without even noticing, you'll go from laughing to sitting at the edge of your seat in suspense. I aim to deliver an engaging and interactive gaming experience, fostering an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere within a diverse community of awesome people. I mainly run D&D 5e and Forged in the Dark games, but I have experience in lots of other game systems, including: Candela Obscura, Alien RPG, Cypher/Numenera, Pathfinder2e, Star Wars 5e and many others.
