About me

Shawn is a masterful storyteller and world-creator. He puts passion into his games and seamlessly weaves your character into the story. When you play in one of his campaigns, you will be drawn in, enthralled, and entertained. In the virtual arena, Shawn is meticulous about the amount of detail and ambiance he puts into his sessions. Virtual games have the opportunity to fall flat, but as an experienced DM, Shawn keeps this from happening. When you are in one of the virtual sessions, you aren't just playing a game; you are truly immersed in the world where your character is the hero. Shawn holds in high regard the fact that his games are a safe space for members of the LGBTQ community. It is crucial that all gamers (and gaymers!) have a place to play that is free from fear. If you have any issues with this, do not sign up for his games. If you are looking for a place to stretch your imagination, have a dynamic storyline, make new friends and memories, or just de-stress after a long workday...Shawn's games are the perfect place for you! Some of Shawn's rave reviews from past and current players: "Shawn is one of the best DMs that I've ever had the pleasure of playing with. He's knowledgeable about the game rules, but allows room for individual growth and fun." "Patient and great with new players. Explains things in an easy-to-understand way." "Creative and engaged, Shawn immerses his players in these fantastical worlds, melding the well-known realms with his own intricate visions to create once-in-a-lifetime experiences." "Personable, involved, creative, fair." "Inspiring, laid back, and stellar improvisational skills." "Creative, and caring; lets us try to argue our points even when we are wrong. My favorite DM I've ever played with and am always excited to see what he has in store next!"

GM style

Shawn utilizes a balanced mixture of RP and combat in his sessions. He can adjust this based on party preference. He enjoys immersing his players into a scene, excelling at descriptions that will bring your mind directly into the scene - along with backing that up with virtual imagery. Shawn enjoys weaving some humor and lighthearted fun into the games as the players dictate. He has a very fluid style which adapts to the players preferences and comfort levels.
