About me

Hey there, adventurers! My name is Maia (my-ee-uh), and I'm a relatively new GM who's incredibly passionate about the art of storytelling in tabletop RPGs. Don't let the "new" part fool you—I put in a ton of work and effort to craft immersive worlds and dynamic encounters that will keep you on the edge of your seat. What sets me apart? My focus on blending narrative depth with fast-paced combat ensures that you'll have an unforgettable gaming experience every time you join one of my sessions. Games I'm Currently Running: 1. City of Mist Imagine a gritty city where modern-day legends come to life. City of Mist offers a unique blend of noir storytelling and mythical intrigue, all wrapped up in a tag-based system that lets you customize your character to the nines. 2. Cypher System Versatility is the name of the game in the Cypher System. Whether it's high fantasy or sci-fi, this system allows for easy character creation and a focus on storytelling, making each session a new adventure. 3. Crystalpunk (DND 5E) Step into a world where magic fuels brutal, cutting-edge technology. Crystalpunk offers a neo-noir landscape filled with tough choices, where spells and demons power everything from firearms to vehicles.

GM style

When it comes to my GM style, I'm all about the narrative. I love diving deep into political intrigue, social dynamics, and complex mysteries. Expect to engage with a diverse cast of NPCs, negotiate alliances, and make choices that will have real consequences in the world. I'm a sucker for a well-thought-out story, so you'll find that elements from your character's past might just weave their way into our current adventures, giving you a real sense of agency. While I lean more towards the role-play side of things, don't think I skimp on combat. For me, each fight is a chance to advance the plot and add tension to the story. I aim for combat to be meaningful, serving a purpose beyond just hacking and slashing. And hey, I'm still learning, so I'm all ears for feedback and open communication. Let's make this a collaborative storytelling experience we won't forget!
