About me

Welcome to my world(s)! I'm a forever GM across a multiverse of games and settings. I'm a musician, writer and actor, and also coach others in storytelling and presentation skills. I love the thrill of sharing my creations and bouncing off others' imagination - it inspires me to bring more thrills, suspense and laughter to the (adventuring) party. My gaming sessions are safe spaces, open to all. I mainly use D&D 5e rules and my custom setting (Antalár), which has been growing for many years. My ideal player character is a multi-class Dwarven Bard-Druid-Barbarian-Ranger. My ideal adversary is a Purple Dragon Lich complete with Undead Horde :)

GM style

I aim to provide a good balance of roleplay, combat, exploration, problems, puzzles and mysteries. I enjoy immersive play with character voices, though my players can approach the game in any way they feel comfortable. I favour creativity and storytelling over the dictates of the dice. I'm flexible and listen to what my players want, though my preference is more towards 'theatre of the mind' with maps and tokens for battles when needed. I always run a Session Zero to set boundaries and set the scene so players know what to expect. I'm a professional educator and happy to play with players across the whole range of experience from beginner to seasoned :)
