About me

Liam Yates is an actor, director, and playwright from Raleigh, North Carolina. He's been a professional storyteller for over twenty years, and has been running role playing games for the past eight years. Games are held weekdays in the afternoon and evening, perfect for after school and after work crowds alike! His preferred game systems are Powered by the Apocalypse and Dungeons and Dragons 5e, systems more focused on narrative vs. number crunching, though he is adept at game systems in general and can learn any system upon request.

GM style

- Sharp improvisational skills and adaptability - Multitude of voices, accents, and dialects for a textured game play experience - Focus on inclusivity and collaboration in storytelling and role playing - Emphasis on fun before anything else - Decades of writing experience to support YOUR dream of being a hero/villain/middle aged woman turning her life around/granddad just wanting to read the paper without all these orcs on his lawn. My style and skillset is more focused on character interaction, role playing, and narrative as opposed to number crunching, combat focused, and competition. I am automatically a fan of the characters you create, and I want to see them achieve their goals and dreams.
