About me

Hiya, I'm Rick. I've been immersed in the world of roleplaying games since the 80s, and it's been my favourite thing since then! From the early days of Dungeons and Dragons, I was hooked and couldn't resist going further and becoming a Games Moderator (GM) or DM. Recently, I've been delving into the world of Forged in the Dark (Blades in the Dark), and this has reignited my enthusiasm! I've been a DM for a long time but only just joined Start Playing. I still play face to face but have been on Role20 for about 8 years. I love theatre of the mind, epic storytelling, action, combat and character interaction. I enjoy running games for experienced players with all the skills they bring to the table but also like bringing new players into the world of ttrpgs. As a DM, I always strive to create a warm and humorous atmosphere that focuses on making the player's experience as vivid and engaging as possible. So if you're looking for a DM who's passionate about storytelling and creating unforgettable gaming moments, look no further!

GM style

I enjoy creating a warm and humorous environment that's perfect for storytelling and gameplay. My years of experience have taught me the importance of crafting unforgettable experiences that leave you with cinematic memories of the game. One of my favorite things to do as a Game Director is to create memorable NPCs with their own unique personalities and storylines. I love to add excitement, tension, and passion to the scenarios we play out. In my games, player characters are encouraged to interact and have different types of in-game social interactions. For me, character motivations and backgrounds are just as important as the scenarios themselves. I am well versed in the rules and mechanics and ensure that the rules assist and support the game play. As a DM, I keep the game playing environment safe and welcoming to all types of players and people. I caterfor all levels of experience - whether you're a seasoned pro or brand new to the world of roleplaying games. So if you're looking for an exciting and engaging game that's filled with laughs, drama, and adventure, look no further - I'm here to take you on an unforgettable journey!
