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 citing the rules lawyers on them. I dabble in vocalizing my own sound effects and operate an array of effects digitally out of a sound board!
