About me

Hiya! I'm Laina, and I have over 7 years, 5 of which I've spent as almost a full-time GM. I have experience with a wide variety of games, from mainstream games like DnD and Pathfinder, to more niche PbtA games, and am quick to learn systems as well! I am a big fan of player choice and letting my players do whatever wild ideas they come up with, and I treat all of my players as equals at the table. I love world building, and working to create interesting and unique worlds with my players! I also have experience running games for audiences, as I have a TTRPG podcast, and have run multiple charity streams for that podcast. I'm also a trans lesbian, and as a result I make sure to make my tables welcoming for people from all walks of life!

GM style

Above all else, I am a roleplay focused GM. I am happiest running games when everyone is passionate and excited about playing their characters, and when I can tell they're truly immersing themselves in their roles. I also greatly enjoy world building, specifically in collaboration with my players, and like to create diverse and engaging worlds for my players to play in. In play, I like to always greatly consider my players ideas for what they want to do and how they want to do things. Unless the idea is quite literally impossible, I always try to say yes to every idea given to me, especially the most buck wild ideas possible. I also enjoy tailoring my campaigns to the player characters, dedicating arcs to characters backstories, and making the world, enemies, and allies personable to the players.
