About me

Hi, nice to meet you! My name is Jaana and I've been playing DnD 5E for about 5 years. For the last 3 years I've been a DM on a weekly basis. I've also played 3.5 for a short time and a GoT version, been a DM for all kinds of different people and love tailoring my adventure based around the backgrounds of the PC's. I'm flexible in time and genre and prefer maps and tokens/mini's when I'm the DM. For more info check my profile!


GM style

I've different styles of playing: 1. A story driven world of my own, where the player's background is heavily incorporated in the story. It will have a combination of RP and combat. Sometimes I'll throw in a puzzle, but it's not the main thing. I like realism as far as consequences for your actions and a world that keeps evolving, even without the characters. That way your choices have an impact on the world. 2. Forgotten Realms adventure books. I like to incorporate the players in the story and change little things. Sometimes the books aren't smooth or the story has an ending that is just one roll, those things I change. 3. My one-shots are usually a bit more dark, less character driven and more creepy. They can take over 10 hours, but I don't mind doing them in a day or splitting them in a couple of sessions. 4. I'm also open for other challenges, although I am focused on (high) fantasy and realism. For science fiction other DM's would be more appropriate. I don't mind the level of experience and tend to take spells and abilities as literal as possible. I want it to be fair, meaning if I said a rule works that way, you can totally use it against me when it's in your advantage. That said, the rule of cool when dealing the killing blow or flavoring things is totally fine. I don't mind changing little things to races if you really want to play a certain thing, but it doesn't fit. If you ask me, I'm always willing to work with you and be creative. In session 0 I'll talk to everybody and set the tone for the adventure and expectations. How goofy, or serious it will be and what we expect from each other. Let me know any questions you have!
