About me

Hello! I am an experienced DM with multiple full campaigns under my belt and I fall more and more in love with D&D with every roll of the dice. I am so thankful that thanks to this site and my community I have been able to make DMing my fulltime career! LGBTQ+ and BIPOC friendly! I have been playing TTRPGS for over 16 years, and even tried my hand at designing my own system once or twice. Me and my friends would take turns DMing for each other until I eventually became the designated dm. My personal group has been playing for 6 years and I have been the forever DM for even longer; I really wouldn't have it any other way. I enjoy campaigns that are character driven and fully believe in the heart of the collaborative story telling. Each campaign is tailored to the players in the group I make sure every player has an affect on the story. The best part of D&D is that even as the DM I have no idea what is going to happen. “I would like the world to remember me as the guy who really enjoyed playing games and sharing his knowledge and his fun pastimes with everybody else.” ~ Gary Gygax

GM style

I consider myself to be a lawful good DM. I enjoy keeping the rules consistent and fair, but my role is to be supportive of the party and ensure everyone has a good time. I believe in the collaborative spirit of the game. Otherwise what is the point. I am always open to creative ideas and attempting something crazy, but if I don't think something will work I will let you know and try and see if there is another way to accomplish the same result. I enjoy deadly and tactical combat that challenges players to use their abilities creatively. I primarily use roll20 to create, or use pre-created, maps that are more than just goblin attacks, now I attack, rinse and repeat. I enjoy role playing with a combination of descriptions and in character dialogue. I will certainly try and create npc love interests, rivals, and trusted companions. In my campaigns your luck, your chosen allies and enemies, and the decisions you make, they will all have consequences, and I try my best to incorporate character backgrounds into the story in a way that maintains verisimilitude.
