About me

Hello! My name is Josh, though I go by Ghost in most online places (I honestly don't care what anyone winds up calling me). Pronouns are he/they, for anyone curious. I've been playing TTRPGs for over seven years and I've been running games for about five and a half. I mostly run D&D 5th Edition, but I've branched out to running more and varied systems. I just wrapped up a Cyberpunk RED campaign and am about to start running a Star Wars campaign, but I'm always hungry to run more games in more systems. I don't know how frequently I'll be running games on here, I tend to run and/or play in games 6 out of 7 days each week, but I'm always happy to run something and get more game time in! I typically run on Foundry, but I can easily do Roll20 (though I don't have and do not plan to get premium) or just theater of the mind through Discord. I only use Discord for chat, since Foundry can be difficult to set up in terms of webcam/microphone usage.

GM style

Role play is my favorite thing, regardless of the game system I run in. I like to get in-depth with backstory and interpersonal relationships between characters and NPCs. I very much enjoy doing character voices and there are several accents that, while I can do them reliably and stay in them, they likely are not entirely accurate. I try to be as sensitive as possible and generally do not do accents that make myself or others uncomfortable. Combat is not my main focus, but I do enjoy running interesting combat experiences on occasion. Just because it isn't my favorite thing does not mean combat suffers because of it.
