About me

Hello, I'm Thom! (pronounced without the 'H') Hoarder of books, lover of terrible puns, and former gifted program kid. I've been playing tabletop games since I got kidnapped to play an AD&D Thief in 6th grade, and was GM'ing non-professionally for friends since 2008! Some things to look forward to if you choose me as your DM: - Excellent at improvising. I can roll with most punches thrown my way. - Good at encouraging people’s actions and giving them choices. - Encouraging of creative solutions to puzzles and challenges. - I care about having a fun time for everyone - Able to create fun and challenging battles that don’t feel impossible


GM style

I try to be a Players-Forward DM; bringing the players' characters to life in a wider world, rather than tying down to one story or idea. Feel free to ask about improvised or unusual skill checks; I feel the players should be enjoying their time at the table rather than me than going full in rules lawyer on them. I dabble in vocalizing my own sound effects (I've tricked friends into thinking a nearby door has creaked open)
