About me

My name is Eric, he\him. I am Canadian, a father of 3 great kids, a husband and a nerd. 🇨🇦 My very first character was a Gnomish Tinkerer built using AD&Ds Dragonlance Adventures and my cousin-DM absolutely despised him. He ended up killing my gnome with a wyvern in my second session ever. Even with such a rocky start I was hooked on TTRPGs. I started DMing my own game shortly afterwards, convincing some friends in highschool to play The Lord of the Rings Adventure Game. After growing up around The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings it felt like a natural fit. We traveled around Mirkwood, into the Frozen Heath, fighting Orcs, Spiders and wild beasts. I've come a long way from those beginnings almost 25 years ago and am excited to make new stories with new people.

GM style

Player enjoyment is number one. I listen to my players, help them accomplish their goals and to tell their stories. Collaborative story telling is my number two. I dont want to tell a story AT you, but WITH you. I love doing silly, serious and scary voices to bring my NPCs to life. I dont expect voices from my players but am always happy to have people try. I maintain a safe table, where people know their boundaries will not be crossed and they will be safe to explore and roam where they will.
