About me

Hi! I'm Ollie, a Creative Writing Student and Dungeon Master of five years looking to provide players with the fantastic experience you deserve! I have plenty of experience in running D&D for new players; if you're new, I can personally guide you through the process of creating a character you'll love and learning the rules relevant to you! At my table, you can expect epic narratives that combine unique, tactical combat and immersive roleplaying scenes. I'll work with you to ensure that your character is a part of the world - NPCs from your background will show up, your character's goals will be met, and your backstory will be relevant! Whether you enjoy heroic fantasy for the immense monster slaying or high-stakes negotiation scenes, you're sure to find your place at my table! Inclusivity and player comfort is absoutely vital to me. No matter your background, you have a spot at my (virtual) table! Let's slay some dragons together! :)

GM style

Dramatic narrative scenes and intense, high-stakes combat are my bread & butter. I like to make my players fulfil the fantasy of their characters to the fullest. As such, I'll be engaged with you through every step of the character creation process, guiding where necessary and listening for what makes you most excited. If you have an idea for something (be it a story moment, a character ability, or anything else), you can be sure that I'll be working hard to realise it! Vibrant NPCs and colourful locations are the keys to creating a real world for my players to explore and feel a part of, and so I put time into crafting these elements. You can expect NPCs to have a unique voice and personality. 2 years in a Creative Writing course has helped me a lot with writing characters! When planning combat, I take the time to craft custom monsters and encounters to highlight your character's strengths, and (sometimes) challenge their weaknesses. Combat can be difficult, but not unecessarily so!
