About me

In the 6th grade, Matt Metcalf invited me and a few other buddies over to his house one Saturday afternoon. He pulled out a red rectangular box with a picture of a red dragon and the words "Dungeons & Dragons" emblazoned on the top. I was hooked. My name is Herb. Fantasy literature and gaming has been one of my passions throughout my entire life. I have GMed online since 2010, and have run games professionally since 2020. In 2022 I made the jump from D&D to Pathfinder, and I am very much enjoying the step up in tactical play and the high quality adventure content that Paizo publishes. If you like a well-run game with quality content and roleplaying, you will be satisfied. I bring the level of leadership and creativity it takes to create a comfortable and enjoyable experience. If you're looking for a top-rate GM, I am the one you should choose!

GM style

I run an immersive game with light-hearted moments. Music, artwork, character voices, and excellent storytelling are key. I especially enjoy creating long campaigns with character tie-ins, though I'm happy to run shorter beginner adventures. The absolute most important thing is that players are having fun and being challenged, and I understand that it is my job to set that environment.
