About me

A lover of storytelling and an avid gamer, I've been playing games since I was a kid and TTRPGs since 2018. I was first introduced to D&D through watching Critical Role, and when a friend invited me to a table, I was hooked from the get-go. I quickly realized that I wanted to not only play but also GM games that encouraged both myself and others at the table to craft meaningful, creative stories together. In addition to playing D&D, I read and write both published literature and fanfiction. I play a lot of video games, primarily RPGs and strategy/builder games. I also enjoy rock climbing, swimming, and sailing. I'm also a big history buff, particularly world history in the 1200-1700s. If we have any shared interests, I'd love to chat about them!


GM style

A game master since 2019, I love running games rich in roleplaying, with a heavy emphasis on character development from backstory to the final boss fight. I like communicating frequently with my players to make sure that their play experience is consistently positive, and while I'm very familiar with the rules of D&D 5E, I prefer finding ways to help my players accomplish what they're attempting within the bounds of the game rather than using the rules as an excuse to prevent them from trying something creative and fun. I love worldbuilding and developing complex, engaging plot hooks for players to pursue. My campaigns often heavily involve character backstories, which I like collaboratively building with players to weave characters into the world they'll be exploring. I enjoy running combat that involves varying terrain and tactical enemies. My monsters' actions are driven by character motivation in and out of combat, and I frequently modify existing monsters or homebrew new ones for major fights to reflect the characteristics of the enemy that the players are facing. My table is LGBT+ friendly and actively anti-racist. New players welcome!
