About me

I was given the D&D Red Box Basic Set when I was a kid and D&D and other role playing games have captured my imagination ever since. I've been playing and running D&D and othe role playing games ever since and doing so has shaped my life in profound ways. I am at my best running open world, sandbox style games where players have agency over their character's actions and fates. I like presenting worlds where dangers are ever present and the skill of the player as well as the stats of the character are challenged. I am experienced in many different role-playing game systems including all editions of D&D, Pathfinder (1e/2e), Traveller, Stars Without Number, FATE, Dungeon World, Palladium Books, Savage Worlds, and many other games. I'm always learning new games and exploring new ideas and always trying to improve my skills as a player and DM/GM.


GM style

I am at my best running open world, sandbox style games where players have agency over their character's actions and fates. I like presenting worlds where dangers are ever present and the skill of the player as well as the stats of the character are challenged. I run games where there are multiple courses of action available and the choices players make have meaningful consequences. I run worlds that react to my players actions and feel alive and consistent. I run games where player agency is the most important aspect. I consider myself first and foemost a referee of the game. I present the world fairly and avoid bias as much as possible. I roll the dice in the open and I appreciate the times when an interesting dice roll result takes a session in an unexpected direction..
