About me

Hi there! My name is George, and I'm a professional Dungeon Master on I've been playing and DMing D&D and other RPG games for over 40 years. I'm passionate about creating immersive and engaging experiences for my players, and I love helping them tell their own stories. A majority of my campaigns are custom campaigns of which I craft myself. I run most of my sessions on the virtual tabletop Roll20 while using Discord for voice (and sometimes video). I'm a big believer in player agency and I want my players to feel like they have a real impact on the story. If you're looking for a DM who is passionate about creating a fun and memorable experience, then I'd love to hear from you. I'm available to run games on a variety of different schedules, so let's find a time that works for you. Here are some of my strengths as a DM: • I'm a great storyteller. I love creating immersive and engaging worlds for my players to explore. • I'm a good improviser. I'm able to roll with the punches and keep the game moving forward, even when things don't go according to plan. • I'm a fair DM. I'm committed to creating a fun and challenging experience for everyone at the table. I never make it player vs DM. I'm firmly on the players' side. • I'm a good listener. I want to hear what my players want out of the game, and I'm always willing to make adjustments to make sure everyone is having a good time. If you're interested in playing a game with me, please send me a message and we can discuss potential campaign ideas.

GM style

I try to balance a mix of role-playing and combat. I use battle maps both for visual aids as well all combat and role-playing is encouraged. I prefer customizing my own campaigns over using published campaigns. This give me the ability to adjust for what the players want without having to stick with the publish campaigns requirements. The players are given as much agency as possible while at the same time trying to "save the world/realm/town/hostages/etc.". As a dungeon master, I don't believe its the DM against the player. My mission is to ensure the sessions are fun. I get my fun by watching the player succeed while being challenged. I generally prefer to play as close as I can to the rules as written but I do use a few optional rules and I'm flexible to what the group wants. I also don't let the rules bog down the game so if something comes up where the rules are vague or we just don't remember, sometimes I'll make a call and let the game move along.
