About me

Hello there thanks for considering me to GM your game! I am Eric, and I love tabletop role-playing games! (TTRPGs) I cut my teeth on fantasy RPGs when I was a wee lad along with a touch of D&D 2e, about the time Spelljammer came out. I took a bit of a break as life happens, but when DnD 5e came out, I was hooked firmly in the grasp and haven't looked back. Since then I have found many other systems to fall in love with. I have a passion for "Dungeons and Dragons" and Cypher Systems games like "Numenera" and "The Strange." It is the opportunity of a lifetime to share my love for the games that have brought me so much joy. Enough about me! Play, tell me what you would do, and share a story with us!


GM style

Players will hear, "What are you doing?" A lot. 🗣️Roleplay - expect a good helping of roleplaying at my tables. Players can expect an immersive, reactive world where they can interact with NPCs and other player characters.I am perfectly fine going an entire session (or more) with RP encounters and experiences alone. ⚔️Combat: Don't worry, barbarians; I have action covered. You can expect combat to matter, challenging encounters that ride the razor's edge of life and death. Enemies aren't always a sack of hit points, often the environment is just as challenging as your foe! 🧭Exploration: Expect a mix of skill challenges, hex crawls, and more expedient methods of travel for a varied and interactive way to explore the world. 📣Expect a DM that is your biggest fan! 🤝🏾A culture of teamwork and cooperative play. 👿PVP and disruptive play is not allowed. 🆕Helpful and encouraging for new players and veterans alike. 🎵Curated music and ambience. 🗺️Official assets and custom maps - many hand made for you! 👽Custom monsters (I am even working on a monster book!) 💻A ridiculously simple VTT to use. 📖Great storytelling. 🧔🏽Interesting NPCs in a breathing world. 🏫Experienced DM with mastery level knowledge of the rules. 🔦Everyone has a chance to shine. 🛃Custom and official material from official and 3rd Party creators. 🙋🏻‍♀️Choices matter; the world reacts to players' actions. 🙌🏻Attitude > Experience. 🦺A safe environment to play with a zero-tolerance policy toward harassment. Also, players will hear, "What are you doing?" A lot.
