About me

Hello fellow humans! I’m Matthew—owner and game master at Dice Told Tales. I run campaigns, events, and one-shots for companies, parties, and groups all over the New York area and, online, worldwide. Storytelling is everything to me as the Dungeon Master–I describe Dungeons & Dragons as communal storytelling more than a game. Games are bound by rules, but D&D is a sandbox where rules, as the great Captain Barbosa says, are more like guidelines. My play style reflects this sandbox philosophy. I run fun, easygoing games with an eye toward character empowerment and telling incredible stories. I run a safe and inclusive table where everyone’s welcome regardless of skill level or identity.


GM style

I love player-driven stories where the rules serve more as guardrails. I’ll drop a few different plot hooks, but if we’re having a blast hanging out in the tavern, that’s a great session too.
