About me

Role Playing is the best entertainment there is, the only one that can create vivid mind-pictures together with a strong sense of immersion in fantastic worlds. I have loved RPGs for more than 30 years, and have been a Dungeon Master across all of the editions of D&D. I run multiple weekly D&D 5E sessions (all set in the 5th Age multiverse shared setting). Each group in my open-world campaigns is part of the same multiverse, and their actions can resonate and change the events around them, as well as affect what the other groups may be exposed to. Each group's actions may impact other groups. The wiki and home rules is there to make sure that anyone's actions are resolved with the same set of rules, to be fair to everyone, and if a ruling has to be made for things not covered by RAW, it will be documented in the wiki and apply going forward the same way to everyone. There is no better feelings than those of players overcoming challenges together with creative solutions done within the rules and that will generate shared moments they will remember forever! In all these campaigns, I want my players to build up their characters and make their name as famous as those of Drizzt, Catti-Brie, Tasha, Elminster or Bryce Feelid! The 5th Age awaits for a new generation of heroes!


GM style

Gritty, tactical and realistic role play. I like immersing players in a lot of details and making the world around them feel alive. All checks are open, and there is no railroading. How the story of the worlds is affected by the players is up to them, and I am not driving toward any specific outcome. I am an adjudicator DM when it comes to running combat. Read more about my DMing style in my online introduction https://homerules.obsidianportal.com/wikis/introduction Getting a new character in my campaigns requires going through a session zero and the right time in-game for the new character to "meet" the group. A player can not contact me the same day of a session and expect to play in that session. This is partly by respect to the other paying players who did not pay for me onboarding a new player during their gaming time, and by respect for the story as the conditions for meeting a new character need to be reasonably acceptable based on where the group currently is. This "Meet" will be part of all the characters' story, and I value its circumstances more than making a bit more money from one game session. I do not do refunds if a player misses a session and failed to use the skip session option on their player's dashboard. This said, there will be no charge if I have to cancel a session.
