About me

Hi! My name is Ron Murphy. I've been playing TTRPG's and DMing campaigns since the 90's and I would love to run your game. I'm the DM for the Severed Sons DnD Rime of the Frostmaiden podcast and for the Twitch stream Rolling in the Netherdeep. If you would like a taste of my DMing style, I'm famous for cliffhangers and putting my PC's into backstory related conundrums that leave them begging to play again soon. I enjoy taking published modules and bending and shaping them so that they fit the PC's backstories and motivations, putting them at the center of the story.

GM style

Roleplaying and character backstory play a large part of campaigns that I run. I encourage players to create rich backstories with NPCs and secrets that can be revealed during play. I use Roll20 to share player handouts and maps and use player tokens in dungeons and for combat, but I still use theater of the mind to flavor combats and rule of cool is important to me! My games can go from incredibly silly to poignant character moments, sometimes all in the same session.
