About me

I'm a ministry student, writer, and small-time farmer in rural New England. Author of the paranormal fantasy webserial Tall Tales, and Christian theology blogger posting as The Worst Baptist. I started playing tabletop games to develop my storytelling skills and view the experience of collective storytelling as the most important aspect of playing or running a campaign. As such, I am very focused on giving players a very interactive and complex world, and the freedom to explore and change it. I believe the rules of the system exist to facilitate a positive experience of the game, and will therefore entertain notions of shifting them slightly when it serves the greater purpose of the story; but I expect a solid case to be made for that decision before I'll implement it.


GM style

As a GM, I aim to facilitate collective storytelling. I will lean heavily into presenting you opportunity to explore your characters and the setting, track the consequences of your actions, and maintain a robust world for you to engage.
