About me

Hail and well Met Adventurer!!!! Do you enjoy playing the world's greatest tabletop game: Dungeons & Dragons?!?!?!?!?! Are you an experienced group of players who can never find someone to run a game or have a DM commit to scheduling? Perhaps you thought D&D would help promote synergy amongst your staff/coworkers? Or maybe you have a party/birthday/event where you'd like to have a One-shot or run a Full Game?!?!?!?!? Perhaps you’re a new player seeking to learn a fun new game you can share with your friends/family, but are unsure how to get started? Look no further!!!!! My name is Eric and I want to be your Dungeon Master!!!!!! I’ve been playing this game for 12+ years, DM’ing it for the past 9+ years, and DM’ing professionally for the last year. I’ve played everything from AD&D to the new 5E system. I’ve run games for adventurers of all ages, teaching it to children and adults alike! I have oodles of material to ensure consistent, extended play, and that your party never runs the same game twice! I encourage Roleplay as well as sprinkling in a fair amount of combat, but most importantly, I put 100% of myself into making sure my players have fun!!!! I’ve always had a passion for this game, and I try to reflect that passion in my DM’ing. Now, I wish to turn my passion into my career!!! So I’m putting myself out there as a DM for hire in my home state of New Jersey. I can run games in-person, or online via Discord should you prefer. Traveling is rarely an issue. I can provide many of the materials needed for new players to start their games, including new digital tools that will make character creation and gameplay much more streamlined and simple. Thank you, and may your Nat 20's be plentiful!!!!

GM style

I like to run games that are partly combat, partly RP, but with a heaver emphasis on the RP. I like controversial decisions, memorable characters, and story arcs. I like creating a cohesive story - no matter if it’s a regular game played once a week, or a one-shot designed to try out a new character concept. I enjoy getting feedback from my players as long as it doesn't interrupt the flow of the game (if anything come to me after and let's discuss). Nothing is completely off the table (or on the table for that matter), and we can decide the direction we’d like to take once we figure out what kind of game we’re running!
