About me

My name is Grendy, and I've been a Game Master since the 90s when I fell in love with tabletop roleplaying. Crafting immersive experiences for players brings me immense joy, and I strive to create a welcoming and inclusive space where everyone can fully engage in the game. My journey began with D&D and the Cthulhu Mythos, eventually leading me to discover the Cypher system, which I now favor for its flexibility and focus on storytelling. I identify as genderqueer and neurodiverse, and strive ensure that my table is a safe and affirming space for all players. I'm committed to helping you and your group achieve your gaming goals, creating memorable adventures together in a welcoming environment. I'm in the Pacific Daylight Time zone (GMT -7) and excited to collaborate on your next tabletop adventure! ✨Got a request?

Share conversations, ideas, and memes between games. » We also host free games every week by a cadre of wonderful GMs. » For security, you will be required to post an introduction before having access to the server. =======================
