About me

Kia Ora from Middle Earth! Things I inhabit in this world..... theatre and fantasy role-playing games! I love theatre. I basically grew up onstage. Using my imagination in the theatre drew me to role-playing games. Starting with the adventure books from Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson and then moving on to the World’s Greatest Role-Playing Game! I always try to enhance my games with humour, fun, and voices (pretty good at most accents) I have been DMing for quite sometime now having started this hobby decades ago. I have really enjoyed the flexibility to weave stories and play many varied characters that Fifth Edition provides officially and through the efforts of many others around the world. I generally use Fantasy Grounds online as I have an Ultimate license and most of the resources needed to create some epic campaigns, great one-shots and legendary tales. I can use other options but normally it is Fantasy Grounds and Discord. I am happy to start a epic campaign, help newcomers to join the fold, and help out where I can. I can run homebrew and Adventurers League legal games. I have been running those since Adventurers League started and am a former Local Co-Ordinator.

GM style

Voices, fun, puzzles, story, background, combat. All essential parts to making a great game of Dungeons and Dragons. I am equally happy running combat heavy, role play heavy or a combination of both. I tend to try to help the PCs. The way I see it is that we are all playing the game and I, as the DM, am merely a special type of player. We all want to tell the story, complete the quest, save the world and it is my duty to help you, the adventurers!
