About me

Greetings Adventurers! My name is Travis and I've been makin' magic happen at the tabletop since 1999. Most of my experience has been as a dungeon master for Dungeons & Dragons versions 3.5 through 5e with a roughly equal split between in-person and online environments. Let me know if I can be of service as you engage in the world's greatest roleplaying game!

GM style

My style is player-centric above all. Finding ways to tie in character backgrounds and making players feel like the heroes of the tale are what makes me tick. I prefer RAI (Rules as Intended) or RAW (Rules as written), and am known to adjust rulings based on player creativity and the rule of cool. Combat is dangerous - not necessarily always hard. Monsters know what they are doing relative to their intelligence/ wisdom scores, and PC deaths are not out of the question. I like games that have consequence and weight. I also like giving NPC's voices and doing what I can to maximize immersion/ verisimilitude. My worldbuilding tends to be grounded in realism rather than steeped in high fantasy. A sense of scale/ power progression is something I value and pay attention to. I have authored a number of homebrew magic items, races, classes, and rulesets to help make my worlds feel as close to real as possible. You decide to what degree we use said ruleset variations.
