About me

Greetings, adventurers! Like most DMs, I got started as a player and then experimented with one-shots. As someone who writes plenty of horror, I'm happy to run creepy, thrilling, or terrifying adventures, especially around Halloween. I'm equally excited to run low-stakes shenanigans and puzzle-based gameplay. Sometimes I homebrew, and sometimes I draw on premade settings or adventures. But no matter what, I'll make sure everyone at the table is included and having a good time (no matter what mishaps are befalling your characters)

GM style

Gaming is a collaborative experience, so the specifics of a campaign will depend on the players' interests and preferences. That said, I tend to create open-ended challenges for my players, and I always appreciate it when they think of solutions I didn't. While I have a soft spot for social interaction and puzzles, I'm more than willing to provide worthy opponents in combat. Players are welcome at my table regardless of experience level -- I'm just as happy to guide newcomers through gameplay as I am to swap stories of campaigns past. In fact, everyone is welcome as long as they treat me and their fellow players with respect. And to be clear, bigotry is inherently disrespectful.
