About me

Ho there, traveler! There are fortunes to be found in the deep, dark places of the world, should ye survive what horrors await ye there... so be ye a hero, or be ye a coward? I've been playing RPGs for about a decade, and DM'ing since day one. I got started with Pathfinder (back in the 4e days when the game store grognards insisted on it), but I quickly branched out into tons of other games. I love checking out different systems and mechanics, and trying out homebrew rules and settings. But at the end of the day it always comes back to good, old-fashioned fantasy adventure.

GM style

My games lean heavily on player agency, freedom and creativity. I think the most fun games are truly self-guided adventures. I act as a referee, adjudicating the dice and player decisions to facilitate emergent stories. I like to facilitate a sense of community among fellow adventurers that is welcoming and rewarding for newcomers and experienced players alike.
