Check out our campaign's YouTube channel, featuring things characters are experiencing in the game! https://www.youtube.com/c/jonklement I've been DMing for my friends since I was 11 and now I'm 50. I've seen all the editions of D&D as well as many other games, game worlds, and play styles. I DMed through high school, college, and post-college adult life. I'm a published author of 4 novels, 2 short stories, and 2 children's books. I've been a high school science teacher for 14 years. Folks say I can tell a story and explain mindblowing scenes and story reveals, pretty well. In 39 years, I've run almost every D&D world ever published, Star Wars, Star Gate, Marvel Super-heroes, DC Super-heroes, Shadowrun, and Rifts, as well as the world of my own novels, using Mutants & Masterminds as the game engine.


GM style

In one word, my style is "immersion". If we're playing DC or Marvel, I want you to feel like you're in the pages of the comics or on the movie screen. If we're doing Star Wars, I want you to hear the blaster bolts. If it's a fantasy world, I want to capture the essence of that world lore for you so in Forgotten Realms, you really feel like you might meet Drizzt Do'urden, in Dominaria, you feel like your character might be on an MTG card, or in Ravenloft, you feel like there really are horrors lurking that could get you if you're not careful. That's what I do. I absorb entire universes into my brain and then act as your living RPG game engine to rez that world for you. More recently, I absorbed Dominaria lore from Magic The Gathering and ran a campaign last summer for a lifelong Magic player who said I could completely project him into the world of MTG after I had only studied the lore for a week. My favorite story about my DMing was the time I was chosen at the last moment by an anime/otaku con to GM a Power Rangers for-charity game at which the voice actor for Lord Zedd would be at the table since he was a convention guest. I knew nothing about Power Rangers since I was already in my late 20s when they first came out. I didn't grow up with them. However, thanks to the power of the internet and caffeine, I gave myself an 8-hour crash course in the history of the entire franchise's universe so that I could immerse players that had paid charity auction prices for their seats at the table as if I was someone who had known Power Rangers universe lore all my life. The players had all been children growing up with it and they all thought I had known their lore all along, too. Where do you want me to send YOU?
