About me

Hello world, I am Matthew Pauze and have been a Game Master since 1993. Since then I have consumed and run a slew of table top rpg and larp systems. I live in Canada with my partner and kids. My focus is in online platforms, such as discord and roll20, since the rise of Covid - 19. I lean towards systems other then dungeon and dragons, hoping to shine light on some gems of the ttrpg community. Note: Nazis, racists, sexists, transphobes, homophobes, and other bigots are explicitly prohibited from playing, reading, watching, or enjoying my games. In fact, I'd rather you avoided my games altogether. If you have to ask whether this statement is about you, it is.


GM style

My style fluctuates from troupe to troupe. At basics I lean in favour of RAI over RAW. I find I shine at long term campaigns where the PCs have the oppurtinity to explore and experience the world at their chosen pace. I often focus on intrigue and mysteries that has character developing plot. While I work at adapting the style to the troupe playing. I have a soft spot for crafting and domain building by the PCs when the system used supports it. But the best way to see my gming style is to experience it. So for the time being I will try to have a free one shot game each month. Thank you for your time and I wish you a wonderful day.
