About me

Hey-Howdy Everybody! I am Dave, the DM from Leaders N Legacies, a 5e D&D podcast. I returned to D&D in 2018 after 20 years of performing and instructing improvisation with a troop here in the DC area. I came back to roleplay because it's a performance stage open to all and it is just plain amazing to see how different people respond to the same scenarios. As a DM I like to focus on FUN. Combat, Roleplay and Exploration merge together to create narratives/stories we can all enjoy. At the end of the day if we aren't having fun something is going very wrong. We will do this together by creating a space where everyone is comfortable and safe to explore. We will do this using source books of existing adventures (Wizards of the Coast, Kobold Press, GMsGuild, etc.). For now I use Roll20 and DNDBeyond (and Discord) to bring my games together. For examples of my DM style you can check out or find us on your favorite podcast platform (Apple, Anchor, Stitcher, etc.)

GM style

As a GM I waffle between RAW (Rules as Written) and ROC (Rule of Cool). I will always choose the fun choice rather than being the rules police about most things (am strict about AC being hit on what your AC is at). I try to be fun and fair. I will correct mistakes in favor of game play. I love to get folks to "tell me more about..". We will focus on keepinging the story moving but will have some sessions were combat rules the day.
