About me

Hi! I'm Grendy! Allow me to introduce my familiar (30 second video) ✨Got a request? Book me here or send me a message on Discord (lordgrendell#3981) !✨ I offer games for you and your group in the following systems » D&D 5e » Cypher / Numenera » Delta Green ======================= My discord (where games will be hosted) » Connect with an amazing, helpful, encouraging community of LGBTQ+ and neuro-diverse-friendly role-players. 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. ======================= I'm looking forward to working with you to achieve your gaming goals. I fell in love with tabletop roleplaying in the 90s and I've been GMing ever since. I enjoy running games for people, and it gives me joy to know I can provide others with a great time. I started playing TTRPGs when I was 16 in 1997; I quickly fell in love with the multiverse that D&D provides, along with the spooky and Lovecraftian Cthulhu Mythos. It would be over a decade and a half before I discovered my favorite roleplaying game system, Cypher. During that time, I went to university for creative writing and music. I am nonbinary masculine and neurodiverse, and my table is always a safe space to let loose and roleplay. My timezone is Pacific Daylight Time (GMT -7)
