About me

Howdy! I'm Elliot, I've been a Dungeon Master for about 8 years and I specialize in light-hearted horror. I've experimented with loads of different systems and have been working as a DM in professional settings for four years now. Although I have a strong passion and love for D&D, my background is mostly in the arts and theatre (surprise surprise). I’ve got a degree in acting and have taken numerous improv classes, all of which I use exclusively to run D&D now! I’m currently working on getting into animation, but in the mean time I thought working through start playing would be a nice gig. All of my games are focussed on storytelling with a heavy side of scares, with that, I try to make sure I have a lot of safety tools in place so that everyone at my tables feels comfortable enough to fully immerse themselves in roleplay. I have a 0 tolerance policy for homophobia, bigotry, sexism, transphobia or any other kind of blatant prejudice, as someone who identifies as queer and mixed raced, I am firm in creating a safe and welcoming environment for anyone who wants to play at my table. All in all, I’m a huge queer nerd who loves telling stories with people and wants to ensure everyone has a fun time in my games!

GM style

I love to mix horror and light hearted adventures whenever I can. There is comedy at my tables, often alongside a bit of blood and guts. I take my story telling seriously - but I also want my players to have a good time. My job as your DM is to weave a story for your character and the rest of the party, I want everyone to come away from my table feeling like they did something cool and contributed to the story. My DM style is fairly loose in that regard, I take a lot of inspiration from DMs like Brennan Lee Mulligan and Anthony Burch in that I’m trying to tell a good story with my players, and the rules and mechanics are added flavour. You can expect roleplay devices and character connections at my table, with Session 0s to aid in that, and a few Roll20 and Discord bots specifically designed for any text roleplay wanted. I’m always open to suggestions and tips!
