About me

I'm Chris, and I love being a Game Master. It all started when I was in high school and ran an improvised Star Wars game at a science fiction convention in the early 2000's. That game ended up turning into a monster and ran for the next seven years. I haven't stopped since. Like I said, love. I quickly learned that I was a little more extra than the other DM's around me. I'd show up with stacks of rules references, custom full color character sheets, maps, miniatures, bits of costumes, whatever I could get my hands on. I wanted to make my games easy to jump into and fun for the people that were kind enough to grace my tables and let me develop my skills. I hope you'll bring your imagination to my table because we're going to look at some maps, make some things up, realize the horrible consequence of our actions, and have a good time. Outside of RPGs, I'm watch a lot of movies and TV. I also enjoy professional wrestling, co-op videogames, cooking, walking, painting, and getting to do all of these with my partner, two dogs, and freeloading cat-shaped roommate. ****** Tools that I use to make my games: Photoshop, Inkarnate, Dungeondraft, Canva, Generative AI for some images, free and Patreon-sourced artwork, Foundry VTT, Tabletop Simulator, Owlbear Rodeo, D&D Beyond, Spotify and YouTube. ****** DISCLAIMER: I strive to make all of my tables as inclusive and welcoming as I can. NO ONE will be discriminated due to any race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion. All players are provided a content questionnaire before every one shot or campaign.
