About me

As a 20-year veteran, I specialize in long, immersive campaigns that span over a year or more. Within my home-brew world of the Vermillion Isles, sessions run for at least 3 hours, featuring dynamic lighting, custom maps, evocative music, personalized and custom handouts, atmospheric effects, voice modulation, sourced materials, and some API scripts. I focus on crafting rich narratives and fostering exploration over mere 'winning' or endless dungeon crawls, although I ensure players face challenging encounters. Progress is marked by milestones, allowing for negotiation, strategy, or combat at the group's preferred pace.

GM style

– Over 20 years of Game Mastering – I specialize in creating deeply immersive gameplay experiences. – I craft extensive campaigns that unfold over a year or two, guiding players from humble beginnings to epic heroes. – Our weekly sessions, lasting 3 to 4 hours, offer a consistent journey through a richly developed home-brewed world. – Prioritizing storytelling and roleplay, I aim to balance challenge and enjoyment for all players. – Progression in the game is marked by milestones rather than experience points, allowing for negotiation, strategic planning, and engaging combat encounters at your own pace. – I embrace the "Rule of Cool" to enhance the game's enjoyment. – I design custom maps, handouts, spells, races, subclasses, and magical items to elevate the experience and theme of the world. – Our sessions are lively and immersive and utilize dynamic lighting, sound effects, music, atmospheric enhancements, and playful voice alterations. – Players can access the Vermillion Isles Legend Keeper Wiki, a central hub for all world-related information and our collective adventures.
