About me

Hi, I'm Kris! I've been playing TTRPGs for a little over 6 years and over the course of the past three years of running campaigns I've fallen in love with being on the other side of the GM's screen. I love exploring a character's motivations and morality, I love dramatic, dynamic combat, and I love the small things that make the world feel real all the same. I enjoy running games in settings rich with history like the Forgotten Realms, as well as the kind of cooperative worldbuilding that comes with homebrew settings. My ideal fantasy setting has a balance of faction intrigue, sinister (and melodramatic) villains, and the kind of genre-bending weirdness that gives older editions of D&D their charm. If you like a campaign with detailed worldbuilding and multiple congruent plot-lines, my campaign is the one for you.

GM style

In games I firmly believe that challenging, mechanically interesting combats don't have to come at the cost of engaging roleplay and meaningful decision-making. Number-crunchers and theater kids alike can find places to shine at my table. My main TTRPG experience comes from 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons and 2nd Edition Pathfinder, but I love including homebrew from the TTRPG community as well as borrowing design aspects from other games. Overall, I believe firmly that the rules are in place to support creative play rather than limit it.
