About me

Epic, cinematic, narrative-driven, roleplaying Experiences! With a background in stage, film and TV, both in front and behind the camera--Russell’s interests centre on the power of roleplaying games to create unique, shared experiences--that exceed the expectations of his players. With thirty-five years of experience running tabletop roleplaying games, Russell's philosophy as a DM is to create "the illusion of total agency" for his players. He is equally at home running team-building exercises as he is teaching screen-acting, kicking in doors or slaying ogres. Presently, Russell also offers a free video service to those who wish to rewatch their sessions and also keep a permanent record online. (Either public or private facing depending on the group’s preferences). Examples of these sessions can be found on Russell’s youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/c/rkdm1 under Playlists. You can also watch and interact with Russell and the Vaingate Chronicles cast, live every Friday night on Twitch - https://www.twitch.tv/rolestream


GM style

As a professional GM, with a history of acting, voice-acting, screenwriting, directing and streaming-- RKDM runs a roleplaying-heavy, story-focused campaign designed to be immersive for players interested in exploring a fully realized world inhabited by real people. RKDM will collaborate with you to make a maximally dramatic character for their original campaign setting, Sidarhael (D&D5e) or for Vampire The Masquerade.
