About me

🦘 G'day! My name is Matt and I've been playing D&D since 2019! 🐣 I fell into this amazing game after strangely finding myself repeatedly listening to a randomly suggested Star Wars roleplaying campaign on Spotify during my long commutes to work. I was completely mesmerised by this amazing and addictive power of collaborative storytelling and so, back in December 2019, I walked into my local hobby store and bought the D&D Starter Set and jumped into this magical world. I've been loving it ever since! 🍰 To me, D&D is like baking a cake with your mates. You put all these amazing (and often weird) ingredients in the batter and you serve up whatever surprise cake you get. I adore D&D for the memories it creates and I hope to create as much excitement for you as it does for me! 🌏 Dynamic Worlds: The most important rule I hold myself to is to make my players feel like they truly matter to the worlds they’re in. I’m passionate about exploring character backgrounds to make them feel more alive. I’m respectful to all the flavours of playing D&D, whether that be roleplay, combat, exploration, comedy, drama, tactics, chaos, plot and downtime. 🧡 Inclusive and Supportive: I understand the importance of creating a safe and inclusive space for all players. No matter who you are or what your experience level is, I will ensure that everyone feels welcome and empowered at the table. ✨ Fun and Memorable Sessions: Prepare for laughter, brilliant role-playing moments, and unforgettable memories. My sessions are filled with camaraderie, excitement, and an unwavering dedication to ensuring everyone has a great time. 🌟 Book Your Adventure Today! 🌟 Whether you're a seasoned adventurer or a newcomer to the realms of Dungeons & Dragons, I'll guide you on an extraordinary journey that will leave you hungry for more! To secure your spot among the fortunate few, contact Matt today and unlock a world of endless possibilities. May the dice always roll in your favour!


GM style

I adore sitting back to watch players brainstorm, discuss lore and develop their backstories and relationships. I perform character voices as I embody NPCs and I’m respectful when to be serious or comical. I am a firm believer that the table is responsible for crafting the story and sharing the spotlight evenly amongst one another. While not required, I’m also a big fan of overland travel and making the world feel alive, encouraging players to interact with their surroundings, prepare for the journey ahead, and manage their supplies whilst travelling. Regarding combat, I play creatures in a way that best fits their nature, whether that be savagely or intelligently. I’m favourable of using hard and deadly encounters more when they suit the story, and I enjoy letting players blow off steam and demolish weak encounters now and then. At the end of the day, I want my players to feel EPIC. Character death should only be expected when encountering critical story moments.
