About me

Hi! Kevin here, I'm a grown-up 80s kid who started GMing games with dragons and dungeons in middle school and have now, over the decades, diversified into the wide wild world of indie games. I prefer to be a Game Facilitator, rather than a Game Master, and look forward to helping you weave together tales of adventure of your characters. Currently, I'm mostly interested in exploring the Powered by the Apocalypse (PbtA) space, and there is a lot of options to choose from.

GM style

When it comes to "running" a game, I like to consider myself a Game Facilitator, not a Game Master (My preferred term is "Weaver", which I use in a lot of my personal game design); I'm here to set up the situations and reactions of the world (or worlds!) your characters inhabit, playing to find out just as much as you are. I believe in table collaboration and incorporating the ideas and actions of everyone in the game. I'm also a big proponent of Safety Tools and consent; we're all here to have an enjoyable time... even if terrible fates befall our characters! Let's role!
