About me

I have a love for lovable characters, and I’m ready to meet yours! I’m Seamus (he/him), an experienced runner of games for beginner players and veteran dungeon-delvers. 🎲 I’m always excited when I can help players dig into the world of a game and figure out who their character is and what they want to go after. Watch out for my villains along the way: they have their own goals and love to hold grudges!πŸ§› I use my training in speech and drama, and my experience running online escape rooms, to help me improvise and engage with the wild and wonderful ideas of my players. 🎭 I’ve been playing D&D for many years, other popular systems like Call of Cthulhu and Cyberpunk, and a host of bizarre indie games along the way. Get in touch if you have a custom game you'd like me to run for you - I'm always up to grab a new system or setting and make it into a great experience at the table!

GM style

πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ Your character takes the spotlight! πŸ§™β€β™€οΈ My games are character-focused, with worlds that react to your choices and give you opportunities for expression - whether that's through goofy goblin voices, heartfelt soul-searching, or both! I like to collaborate with my players to find a spot for their characters in the world. πŸ—ΊοΈ Lovely little maps and monsters! πŸ‘Ή I enjoy collecting and sharing stunning maps and art in my games - a great way to bring the world alive in an online format. My extensive collection of maps helps me to run engaging tactical combat against monsters with pretty little tokens. But often a brawl breaks out, someone's going to be face-down on the floor of the dungeon in just a round or two, and a single evocative piece of art will do. πŸ˜„ A fun table for everybody! πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ I take being inclusive and safe seriously in my games. If you're not a jerk, you have a place at my table and I want you to feel comfortable there. I have little patience for anybody who would try to make you feel uncomfortable or unwelcome. I make use of safety tools to ensure that everyone has a great experience - even if we find ourselves delving into the grisly imagery of a horror game. I like putting my own spin on published adventures and opening them up a bit to offer a bit more player freedom. I have a soft spot for classic adventures that came out way before my time, but I really enjoy building bizarre underground worlds of my own and helping players add to them. Here are a few nice words people have said about my hosting and improv skills as a GM of online escape rooms as well: 🌟 "Our host Seamus made the experience absolutely incredible." 🌟 "Fantastic time! Perfect as a work, team-building exercise. Seamus is an awesome gamemaster." 🌟 "Our host Seamus was great. Improv is clearly his strong point." 🌟 "Had a great time with my group. Seamus was very enthusiastic and made the experience even better."
