About me

I'm an avid gamer and enjoy Roleplaying Games by Free League Publishing. I specialize in running ALIEN and Blade Runner, I feel that they provide great storytelling experiences and simple dice mechanics. Whatever game I play, I hope to bring you a fun, safe, and engaging experience. My focus is on immersion, so I work to bring in extra sound effects via a soundpad. I also like to add music, and typically make a soundtrack to go along with key events, giving each one some unique music. I balance my time across players and regularly "split the party" whenever needed.

GM style

I love good atmosphere in a game, moments of tension and not knowing what is behind the next door. My games focus on immersion, player engagement, having fun, and playing by the rules. I especially like running the Cinematic games for ALIEN because they are so tense and stressful. I also like how the ALIEN Cinematics have a definite end to them. ALIEN also makes for a great campaign framework as characters have time to develop, and character death makes a real impact on the scenario. Blade Runner is an intense detective drama with opportunities to unravel a mystery. The game features detailed handouts and a living city to interact with. If you're looking for a Family Friendly/All Ages game then you may like Tales From The Loop. It's fun and easy-to-play game system that is heavy on the 80s nostalgia. The game is "rules-lite" which allows the gameplay to move along quickly. It's a great entry level game to Year Zero Engine system used in ALIEN.. I use Foundry VTT for the gameplay, and have a private Discord server that will be used for our voice chat and banter.
