About me

Currently I am not taking on clients. I appreciate all that have played with me on here. Follow & check out my work: John Bultena began playing D&D over 32 years ago. He is the founder/owner of Cauldron & Tower, making D&D adventures and apparel for gamers. He currently instructs writing at the University of California Merced, including a class titled, "Dungeons & Dragons Skills IRL?" Check out his game "Abraxas' Precipice" a The Expanse RPG actual play on Twitch. His games are rooted in heavy metal and the occult, with an extremely high responsiveness to player choice; as collaborative storytelling is the cornerstone of the fun.

GM style

I love all elements of RPGs: story development, combat, puzzles, exploration. As such I remain responsive to the table's interests and desires while also maintaining the ability to be surprising. I love miniatures (have 10,000+) and will have full boards in view for combats, even when playing on Zoom using a multi-camera setup. I can even paint custom miniatures of your character! I excel at introducing new players, ensuring they do not feel the burden of rules while also providing interesting and challenging experiences for veteran players. You can catch me in action over on
