About me

Hello! I'm William, a queer horror author and creator of the fiction podcast Hello From The Hallowoods. I've been an avid RPG player and DM for over ten years, and I love the feeling that comes with sitting down with a group of friends to tell a story together. My games are inclusive, beginner-friendly, and focused on creating a fun and engaging story for each member of the party rather than following the nitty-gritty of the rules. Whether this is your first time playing an RPG and you don't know where to begin, or you've been playing games for decades, you're welcome at the table. I'm excited to meet new players, tell new stories, and engage with the internet audience in a new way. Let's play!

GM style

My style as a Dungeon Master is players first, rules second. At the end of the day, the game we're playing together is here to enable us to tell an engaging story. Expect us to focus on the big beats of the story and driving towards objectives, and to encounter dynamic challenges that can be solved in more ways than just fighting your way through. I enjoy putting my voice acting skills to work voicing NPC's, and engaging in active dialogue with the players. Similarly, I love to create new settings, characters, and staples of the world to interact with - I have no issue overwriting the established canon of the textbook to focus on telling the best possible story for the players at the table. I am a theater of the mind DM at heart, however, I'll facilitate a virtual tabletop in Owlbear Rodeo for many of our sessions.
