Watch the fun! FRIENDLY, FUNNY, KIND, EXPERIENCED, SKILLED Home: (all bookings are through "Doug is a winner! Enjoyment A+ Story Craft A++ (motion picture level) New Player Welcoming A+ PC creative Freedom A+" - KarmaFACTORY (Star Trek Adventures player) Published author, animator, actor and improv performer, martial artist, technology instructor, 33 year mentor: I bring all of these together to bring you an unforgettable experience! I'm a playwright -> I lived in Tokyo from 2017 - 2020. Hajimemashite! I practice Kendo and Iaido, so I know my way around a katana. I love any games set in Asia (love to get out of non-descript European medieval settings any chance I can!) I'm into graphic design and animation and use those skills in my campaigns!

GM style

Here are Your DM's core values: THE PLAYER MUST HAVE FUN! This is my "Prime Directive!" Players have fun when they feel supported and have agency. My goal is to make every session you have with me the BEST you've ever had. RULES are TOOLS The rules of the game are important but the Rules are just Tools ... to enhance your experience! EXPERIENCE is MORE than XP If you have an engaging and memorable experience, I have succeeded. YOUR STORY is EVERYTHING At the heart of every excellent campaign is a compelling story. Your DM is a skilled improvisor who loves to change the story based on your choices.
