“I like to run games in which the characters will be the heroes of the world while at the same time the consequences and effects of their actions will be obvious and will affect the development of the story. I follow the rules to the fullest, so that we are all on the same page and I have the same opinion about the Lore of established worlds. Of course, this does not mean that I do not appreciate the joy of improvisation and I often create my own pieces to fit the story and the players accordingly. It is very important for me to have harmony and good mood at the table. I take care from the beginning to clarify the expectations of all participants, so as to avoid possible disagreements. If a problem arises, I believe the solution is compriomise on both sides and that is good negotiation. It is important to me that there is a comfortable environment for everyone and I attach great importance to consent. Finally, I like to embellish the experience, both with visual and tangible tools for a more immersive experience of the the mind (Maps, badges, tokens, miniatures) and with the right soundtrack which will put us all in the right mood for the game. ”
