About me

I am Dr Joe, I have been DM'ing and playing D&D 5e over the past 5 years, using combinations of online and in-person sessions. I am a storyteller by heart, with my primary goal to make this experience as immersive and engaging as possible for my players through the use of voice-acting, ambient background sounds, thematic music, and challenging role-play. Professionally I am a licensed clinical psychologist that specializes in utilizing Geek culture such as video games and tabletop games in a therapeutic manner. While this won't be therapy, I have trained skill sets to keep up communication, role-play, and a fun atmosphere.

GM style

My games are usually a 50/50 split of role-play and combat with a side of puzzle, and I often integrate my own home-brew ideas into some of the module narrative. I prefer to have mature players 18+ due to content and material that can be more on the adult side. While I do not ban murder-hobo and impulsivity from my game, please note that every action has a reaction in my games and things that you do at one point can always come back to haunt you later. Please leave an application in the appropriate thread.
