About me

Hello new friends, my name is Sam and it is lovely meeting you. I have been a player and GM for more than 25 years. I primarily have run Dungeons & Dragons from second through fifth Editions, but usually can find the benefits of playing in any system. I am particularly fond of Savage Worlds when I want to make a truly unique world that is far removed from typical fantasy. As a GM my goal is to incorporate your characters story along with one of my own making in an immersive world that responds to the players. I enjoy moral conundrums as well as using real world history to lend realism to the adventure's I write. While I love all genre's from fantasy to futuristic space opera's I am most at home with worlds that contain a fair amount of horror and psychological thrill. On a personal level I am LGBTQ+ friendly and inclusive. I am tolerant of most everything except intolerance. Always feel free to drop me a line to see what sort of campaign I am running next, it might be just the thing you've been waiting for.

GM style

My main focus is usually story and plot above all else. I generally speak with my players about their particular interests so I can incorporate the things they like into my sessions. I like to rotate player focus as much as possible, and each adventure is usually part of some greater whole. I enjoy collaborative world-building the most. I often start with broad strokes and weave in new places as the narrative requires. This means that as players tell the stories of their homeland I take notes. Generally my philosophy for being a GM is prepare to improvise. Not every interaction needs be meaningful, but there should be meaning in each interaction.
