About me

I've been DMing since 1982 (red box, yo). I'm an Ennie-award winning and Adamantine best selling author as well as the DM of the Feats and Fables twitch channel. I've done a LOT of DMing at conventions and for various charity groups. I'm very fluent and comfortable with running in Roll20 (I already run 2-3 games a week on R20 anyway). Please note, my NPCs are GOING to include people of color, queer folk, trans folk, elves with the Blessing of Corellon, same-sex married couples, and/or inclusion of a broad representation of the human experience. My games are not going to include racism, sexism, bigotry, or any other sort of prejudice EXCEPT as hallmarks of the TRULY EVIL and as wrongs that the heroes will be fighting bravely against . My games will NEVER EVER include any sort of description of sexual assault. My games will ALWAYS have safety tools, like the X card or lines and veils. My goal is to give my players full empowerment to stop the game, skip over content, or change the tenor of the game so that they are comfortable. If you have ANY problem with that, DO NOT HIRE ME, go home, and think about your life. she/her, 100% trans, queer, LGBTQ+, and POC friendly. Happy to DM for you for a ladies night - ask about a discount for that. Also ask for a discount for POC groups. If I have scheduled games up, the prices will be listed. I generally ask $30-$40 per person for a 4-5 hour session with a minimum of three players. NEW PLAYERS ARE EMPHATICALLY WELCOME AND CELEBRATED! I charge about $ 150-$250 for a 3.5-4.5 hour session for 3-5 players OR about $35-$50 per person per 3.5-4.5 hour session for 3-5 players (depending on whether I'm running homebrew versus a published product versus a published product I wrote).

GM style

I'm a highly technical DM with multiple game-design credits to my name and I'm fully proficient in crunchy combat-central games. I'm also a DEVOTED roleplayer and I am MORE THAN HAPPY to provide NPCs and situations that will set the perfect stage for your roleplaying. Most people want some sort of happy medium between those two poles - I know I do. However, you let me know what YOUR group prefers.
