About me

I've been running and playing TRPGs since the mid 1980s, have introduced dozens of people to the hobby and created several game systems of my own. My gaming time has dropped off significantly in recent years and I want to do something about that by reaching out to both new and existing players in search of a GM. I am an advocate of TRPGs (used mindfully and safely) for mental health, being both neurodivergent and depressive myself, and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to play. Lastly, I am an avid collector of games and systems and have a large treasury of TRPGs spanning the last forty years.

GM style

I love narrative play using simulationist systems, which is less of a contradiction than it sounds. Game mechanics are there to support the GM, not to control them or limit the players' imaginations. I prefer in-character roleplay to reported speech but accept that not everyone is at ease playing this way, and character voices or accents are appreciated but by no means demanded! Imagination and inspired play are more important to me than number crunching and optimised character builds. Just tell me what you want your character to do and I'll fit it to the system.
