About me

šŸ‘‹ Hey there! It's Kai, your friendly internet game master, ready to guide you through immersive adventures and unforgettable stories! With a background steeped in Theatre and Design, I bring my theatrical flair to the gaming table, crafting worlds that come alive with maps, music, and sound to fully immerse you in the experience. As an Official Kobold Press GM for GenCon 2023 (and soon 2024!), I've honed my skills in creating epic, heroic fantasies where every player can shine. šŸ³ļøā€šŸŒˆ As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community, I'm passionate about making fictional worlds as diverse as the one we live in, and gaming spaces that are inclusive and welcoming. Whether you're a seasoned adventurer or a total newbie, my narrative-focused approach ensures that everyone feels welcome and empowered to contribute to the story. šŸŽ² So grab your dice and get ready to embark on a journey like no other! Together, let's weave tales of bravery, friendship, and triumph at the (virtual) table. I can't wait to see where our imaginations take us!

GM style

My GM style is... šŸ‘„ Player stories first. My favorite part of TTRPGs is making meaningful shared stories with you, the amazing people at my tables. And my philosophy is always that the players are the heroes of the story. When in doubt about what to do next, I go to "what makes the most sense for the story/would be appropriately dramatic/would allow my players to explore X part of their backstory?" first. šŸ©µ Laid back. I'm not a huge rules stickler, I love messing around with unique mechanics, and I'll generally allow something if it seems cool. I use virtual tools that are simple, free to players, and allow even the most novice player to immediately start playing. šŸ’­ Creative. I tend to re-write large sections of written modules to make them specific to each group I'm running it for, and try to keep sessions fresh with interesting mechanics, monsters, or encounters. I put my theatre training to use with character voices and immersive music and sound. I also love it when players think outside the box! I love to "yes and" your incredible ideas (within reason - sometimes it becomes a "yes but"). šŸ“– All the lore. Worldbuilding is my JAM and I tend to overthink lots of little details about a campaign's story and setting because I find it really fun. I especially love it when this is guided by or co-created by players, and I welcome you into as much or as little of the process as you would like to be a part of.
