About me

Somewhere at the beginning of time, someone showed DM Lauren a game played with graph paper and funny-shaped dice. Decades later, here we are. You want more detail? Fine. That fateful game of basic D&D began a decades long journey spanning worlds, galaxies, and universes. I have a preference for high fantasy and science fiction, but I have played (and run) everything from cyberpunk to super heroes to unspeakable horror. My love of all things gaming include a nearly 25 year stint in the video game industry. My DMing/GMing style has evolved over the years and has become very player-centric. A good game is a combination of providing challenges, an immersive environment, and room for the players to be … well … players. As far as following the rules, I always starts with “Rules as Written,” have a few "Rules as Intended" exceptions, and believes in providing a consistent experience.

GM style

I try to offer a mix of role-playing, combat, and puzzles.
