Who am I? Well...

I have been an avid gamer and Fantasy/Science Fiction/Horror fan as long as I can remember. I have been playing RPGs since 1987 and have been running games since 1994. Moving around a lot has always put a heavy impact on our groups so to find Roll20 has been a awesome thing since no matter where you are, you can meet up and play/run a session. I have been a member of the Roll20 community for over 2 years now and intend on staying that way. Currently, I am running a few on-going Campaigns in the D&D 5E Rule set (Set in Barovia of Ravenloft) and Playtesting Vampire the Masquerade 5th Edition as well as preparing a Beast the Primordial Chronicle set in Baltimore in present day as well as creating a new Geist: The Sin-Eaters Chronicle set in present day Bronx New York. I am also a huge fan of the new Cavaliers of Mars game using the DEIMOS system and have playtested the jumpstart module a few times on here and will be doing so again.

On top of RPG games, I also play a lot of tabletop games such as Arkham Horror, Tannhauser, Mansions of Madness, Eldritch Horror, MTG: Arena of the Planeswalkers as well as Card Games as well like MtG, CoC LGC, Spellfire, Vampire, and others both new and old..

I prefer to run the games on Roll20 as my area does not have a prominent gaming community, and due to having kids and a wife, this allows me to be present at home while gaming. I am also quite fond of the fact that anyone from around the world can make up one gaming group which allows it to truly become a powerhouse of a group as all different backgrounds and cultures make an amazing group of not only players but characters, in game, as well.

The current games that I am in to are D&D (Fifth Edition), Chronicles of Darkness (Geist, Vampire the Requiem, Beast the Primordial, Promethean the Created, Mage the Awakening, etc.), Vampire the Masquerade 20th Anniversary (Old World of Darkness / Classic World of Darkness), Call of Cthulhu 7E and 6E, The Gumshoe System (Trail of Cthulhu), Conan (Modiphius' 2d20 system), Cavaliers of Mars (DEIMOS) and really anything that allows the creative flow between Players and GM/Storyteller. I think that tabletop RPG games allow a certain level of creativity that is not found in PC Games and/or Console Gaming. You don't even necessarily need maps or tokens...it can literally take place in the theater of the mind. This is something amazing.

If you are interested in any of these Chronicles of Darkness Games, D&D 5e games, or anything else, please PM me! If you are looking for a GM/Storyteller to run a game for you reach out and we can discuss!
