About me

Hello, my name is Paul and I've been running rpgs' in person for 40 years and online for the past five. I love to gather new people around the table to tell stories, build characters and have fun for a few hours. I am also a Certified Therapeutic Game Master, which means I run games for those who may have social anxieties or want to work on their social skills. I'm not a therapist but have good listening skills and an empathetic heart. Games should be fun, challenging with opportunities to get to know new people without the stress. I use safety tools like lines and veils and offer a survey (for brand new players or to anyone interested) to decide what kind of content will be acceptable or not acceptable in game. I cut my teeth on Dungeons and Dragons 1e but have GM'd Pathfinder 1e and Pathfinder 2e with hopes of expanding my rpg horizons and I hope you'll want to do the same.

GM style

My style of play is the rule of cool. If there is a way for your character to do the amazing, I want to help your character do it. I like to bring NPCs to life and do voices, sometimes badly.
