About me

Greetings & Salutations. My name is Corey, I’ve been a fulltime GM for over 40yrs. I am a published author and improvisational actor. I have run everything from AD&D to TMNT, my current focus has been D&D 5e for how versatile the system is. For over 40 years, my passion has been using RPGs to help teach leadership, teamwork, & social skills. I am a firm believer in the “Rule of Cool” the fun is always more important than following strict rules of the game. IF you want to try something that would help move the party forward, never be afraid to try it.

GM style

GM style Combat: 💪💪💪💪 Roleplay: 😎😎😎😎 Exploration: 🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎 Puzzles: 🧐🧐🧐🧐 Rule of Cool!: 😎😎😎😎 Combat: D&D can be a heavy combat game. Your party’s action can affect the flow of the adventure. Remember actions have both rewards and consequences. Winning in combat is never guaranteed good judgment for when to attack, when to talk, and when to flee are always options in every encounter. Roleplay - Role Playing is an important aspect of this style of games. When you are playing keep that in mind. You know what you would do, but what would your character do? I am pretty laid back on role playing so don’t feel that you must go fully immersive just play in the style you enjoy. Exploration: “Oh the places you will go!” I use Owlbear Rodeo for its quick set up and simplicity of use. All you need is a link to the game, and you are done. Nothing to have to sign up for or subscribe to. All that you should do is create a token for your character and that is it. As far as character generation I suggest D&D Beyond so that you have all the rules and descriptions of your abilities available at a glance. A safe play environment for all. I am really big on inclusivity and making sure everyone is having fun. Teamwork makes the dream work. Each player will have moments they can call their own. EVERYONE is important to me. Old School and New School are welcome to all my games. It can be a great mentorship opportunity. Owlbear Rodeo is the easiest Virtual Tabletop to use. Improvisational Adventuring: Your actions change the dynamic instantly. . Time in service as a DM. I have been running games for 40 years and would love to share this in the games we play together. You are the Star. Your decisions shape their destiny. Third party and independent creators are the driving force in improving your experience. I fully support them and their projects. Allow yourself to be part of the character and let the magic out. Come on and enter a world where you are the star!
