About me

Greetings, fellow adventurers! In my younger years, I ventured into the enthralling realm of tabletop role-playing games as a player. Time passed, life happened, but as fate would have it, my passion for TTRPGs was rekindled. Over the recent years, I've re-emerged, not just as a player, but as a Game Master, guiding several groups of friends through tales of wonder and suspense. My love for movies, music, and games fuel my narratives, offering a unique blend of creativity and excitement. Here's a glimpse of what awaits you in one of my sessions: All Inclusive: Whether you're a newcomer or an old hand, all are welcome at my table. Every participant is valued, and I strive to ensure everyone feels included and vital to our shared story. All About the Fun: The heart and soul of my games? Unbridled joy. Picture moments of uproarious laughter, surprise, and camaraderie - that's the kind of fun we're aiming for! Home-Brewed Worlds Crafted with Love: I pour my heart into designing unique worlds for every campaign, enabling us to forge new paths and shape our very own legends. What's more, I delight in weaving the backstories of player characters into the central plot, crafting a personalized and thrilling campaign tailored just for you. Rule-Lite, Role-Heavy... But on Your Terms: While our adventures will have the framework of well-known TTRPG systems, I'm a big believer in the "rule-of-cool". However, Role-playing is entirely up to you. Engage as much or as little as you're comfortable with. I relish getting into character to interact with my players, making our world feel vibrant and alive. But again, deep role-playing is never mandatory – it's there to enhance our story if you wish to partake. Theater of the Mind: Occasionally, I'll draw upon battle maps to set the scene. However, our main stage will likely be the limitless expanse of our collective imaginations, where the true magic of our story unfolds. So, if you're yearning for epic tales, hearty laughs, and memories that'll last a lifetime, you've found the right place. Let's weave tales that resonate, together!

GM style

In the boundless landscapes of tabletop adventures, my GMing style celebrates both individuality and collective storytelling. By meticulously crafting home-brewed worlds and intertwining player character backstories, I ensure each campaign feels deeply personalized and resonant. While the foundation is set by established TTRPG systems, the "rule-of-cool" reigns supreme, fostering an environment where fun and creativity overshadow strict adherence to rules. I enjoy role-playing as the world's NPCs to create an immersive experience for all of my players. Whether you dive deep into role-playing as well or prefer to not play too heavily into your character, my table offers a vibrant world where everyone's contributions shape our epic tales. Dive in and let's co-author legends that will be spoken of for ages!
