About me

Hi, I'm Ethan, a DM with over 20 years of experience running and playing DnD games. I specialize in creating immersive, dynamic gaming experiences and believable NPCs for my players. Whether you're new to tabletop gaming or a seasoned veteran, I'm happy to welcome you to my game and help you discover the endless possibilities of DnD. In my games, you can expect engaging storylines, dynamic combat encounters, and a safe, friendly environment where you can roleplay as much or as little as you'd like. I always have a few adventure hooks, random encounters, and character arcs on hand in case my players take unexpected turns. Currently, I run two games: a private 5e game called The Tavern's Task on Sundays, and a new 5e game called Depths of Waterdeep (Call of the Netherdeep inspired) on Thursdays. If you're interested in joining a deep, roleplay-filled adventure with a team of like-minded heroes, I'm the DM for you. Check out my Patreon to see some of my DnD content, and sign up for my games on StartPlaying. I look forward to gaming with you!

GM style

✅ I always build on the players choices, adding to the absurdity or ramping up the consequences. ✅ I have DM'd for over 20 years and finished nearly a dozen campaigns. ✅ I run the game by the book, so you can always known what to expect. ✅ I use a variety of theater of the mind and both random, and custom maps to always be ready for whatever path you choose. ✅ I run a game with highs and lows - so I give Inspiration for puns to keep the mood light above the table. ✅ No hidden costs.
