About me

Hi, I'm Ethan, a seasoned 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 Mondays. 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

- Living worlds that respond to the players' actions - Believable NPCs with their own unique voices, values, hopes, and more - Character backstories tied in whenever possible - Dynamic and challenging combat - Good or reluctant heroes, with a focus on player success - Extensive knowledge of 5e rules and a willingness to teach - Immersive and engaging plots with plenty of side quests - A balanced approach to pacing, allowing for both fast-paced and more relaxed moments in the game.
