About me

🌐[Personal Website] 👋Hi! I’m a professional Dungeon Master, TTRPG writer, and coach who has run over 1,000 Dungeons & Dragons (5e) sessions! 🐲I run tables for vacation experiences such as D&D in a Castle and have written for companies such as Modiphius, Dungeon in a Box, and [NDA].😏 👍I’m a certified therapeutic dungeon master who works to make the game accessible. I believe in “yes, and” consent and collaborative storytelling. 🎃I love dark fantasy storytelling with deep emotional undertones. 🎲I am the creator of TTRPG University, where I teach people how to run and design tabletop RPGs. ________________________________________ MY BOOKS: 🦇She is the Ancient: A Genderbent Curse of Strahd is available in PDF and hardcover on DMs Guild. (Platinum best-selling and award-nominated!) 🧪Daughter of Frankenstein successfully Kickstarted in 2023 and releases in 2024. ✨The Hourglass Coven book releases on DMs Guild late 2024. ________________________________________ GAME WITH ME: We meet in a private channel via my publishing company's Discord.

GM style

❤️ Beth's games are ALWAYS inclusive & beginner-friendly. ❤️ Games are typically inspired by horror & mystery. ❤️ Players form long-term friendships with each other & with Beth based on memorable table experiences. ❤️ Combat isn't traditionally crunchy but much more narratively driven and has a strong story impact. ❤️ Beth prefers narrative and theater of the mind but has plenty of experience with epic dungeon crawls. ❤️ Each game implements the use of beautiful artwork & digital maps. ❤️ Player input and ideas are top priority. ❤️ Safety tools are implemented and enforced before our first session. ❤️ Games are player-character and roleplay-focused. ❤️ Beth doesn't shy away from NPC voices.
