Professional Game MasterIvan Sadžakovthey/them
Name: Ivan Sadzakov Age: 29 Origin: Serbo-Croatian Residence: near Düsseldorf, Germany Experience: My own PC since I was 6. MMORPG-based roleplaying since 2005. TTRPGs since 2013. Favorite TTRPGs: Mothership and Shadowrun 5E. RPG style: Gritty realism. I generally do not play or run hero stories with happy ends, but morally ambiguous, challenging and emotionally involved characters and games. Animal companions: Three cats. 🔶🔸🔶🔸🔶 Hey! I'm Ivan, a non-binary community and communications manager on the spectrum and I spent way too much time of my life on video games. I have been bored with hero stories very early on in my childhood. When I was 4 years old I was obsessed with Scar and the hyenas, did not care about any of the other Lion King cast. At 7 years I was jumping around in celebration when an episode of Chip & Dale ended with the bad guys winning. Then it said "to be continued", it was a two-parter. I was devastated and cried. I like to challenge myself with media I consume. In games I often subjecting myself to hundreds of hours of grinding to be successful, enjoying every loss just as much as the victory at the end. By now I use TTRPGs as a medium to look behind the curtain, explore human abysses and take them on an emotional rollercoaster (which mostly goes downhill, because that's more fun!). The experiences I offer as a GM are carefully crafted cinematic stories with branching options, somewhere in the middle between the dreaded railroad and the (to me) often overwhelming sandbox. I want to provide a highly memorable game that is both dark and gripping and still remains a safe space for all players at all times. Exploring the darkness together - to me the coolest of bonding experiences!
I've been a hardcore roleplayer for over 15 years, starting out in text-based RP. At the same time I'm also a strategy video game veteran and love tactical combat. More than anything however I'm a sucker for grit and realism, oozing atmosphere and a great story. While exploring the darkest of corners of what could be today's or tomorrow's society, nothing is more important than everybody's well-being and comfort. I try to establish a comfortable environment to experience something discomforting - just like when you watch a horror movie draped in a blanket on a couch with your favorite person holding you! As an autistic, non-binary, pansexual Balkanite of course all players of all backgrounds, preferences and origins are very welcome in my games and I will make sure to make everybody feel safe and validated. ------------ If you can't find your game system of choice in my list but would like me to run a game or campaign for you or your group - just ask! I am learning new systems ALL the time and am very quick to learn and adapt.
