About me

Hey Adventurers! My name is Sean Ryan, and I'm a long time Game Master with a degree in Interactive Media and Design from the University of Miami! My rates are $10 per person per hour for 3 people or more, or $15 per person per hour for a party of two. I've been working full time as an online GM with Players from 2nd grade to adults! They have adventures spanning all backgrounds, and I bring that creativity to all of my games. Even a simple quest can become a call to adventure on your Hero's Journey! I love to see what type of shenanigans the party gets into. As a fulltime Game Master, I've hosted many games internationally using online tools, ambient music/fighting soundtracks, servers, and designed my own custom classes, game mechanics as well as implementation of these. If you're looking for an open-minded fun game master for a campaign, adventure league, or even a birthday party! Then look no further!

GM style

I love everything involved with running a game. Creativity is the key! -Do I have to Role play? I encourage role play but no you aren't required to. - Am I great with character voices? Sometimes yes, sometimes the dwarven barkeep and his wife have the same voice. -Tactical Combat: O yes, I love creative solutions in and out of combat. I do give advantages to gaining height, distracting an opponent, or synchronized attacks between two players. Just to name a few, get creative and surprise me! -Memes: Yes, appropriate memes are allowed. -Can I drink or eat during game: Of course, as long as it doesn't affect in game play. -When addressing a game play ruling, I will look into it after the session to determine how it is ruled for further sessions and implement the best option. The best option for balanced gameplay will almost always be the preferred answer unless for some hilarious reason why not, and it doesn't break the game. -Yes! Constructive Criticism is always welcomed after session, I am not perfect, nor do I pretend to be. Please feel free to reach out to me privately if you have any concerns on how sessions are run, etc... -An online public dice roller will be utilized in every session to ensure roll integrity. -Any form of bullying will not be tolerated -Pretty much anything goes as long as it isn't overpowered or game breaking. -Additional game play, and server rules can be addressed in session zero -If I had to describe my style it would be adaptive, each party and adventure is unique. Therefore, each challenge or situation is handled differently, my personal goal is to surprise my players with new interesting twists, that you wouldn't get from any other game master.
