About Me
  • Location: Wellington, New Zealand
  • Time Zone: NZT/NZDT (GMT + 12/13)
  • Age: 60
Playstyle (as a player or GM)
  • Pretty relaxed and happy to play with players of any experience level.
  • Like RP/Exploration/Combat just about as much as each other and definitely prefer to have all three present in a game.
  • Not a rules lawyer, but do prefer playing Rules As Written.
  • Never allow UA or Homebrew races and classes in games I run, and prefer playing in games where the same applies.
What I like about TTRPGs
  • Meeting new friends and killing stuff together. ;-)
  • The unscripted nature of the game. Anything is possible with the right mix of imagination and collaboration.
  • It's about the story, it's always about the story. Even when I play CRPGs I rarely play them on extreme difficulty because it's about the story.
  • Those YES! moments.
Pet Peeves
  • Hogs who try to win at D&D. They hog the attention, the microphones, the conversation. We've all met them.
  • People who try to tell other players how to play their characters
  • Players who are unprepared and don't know their characters.
  • Min/maxers and murder hobos.
Favourite Moments with Favourite Characters

Pudding Thistleblossom - Halfling Warlock

  • He won a wrestling contest against the town champion even though he had only STR:8.

Pudding Thistleblossom - Halfling Warlock

  • He angered a whole tribe of bullywugs when he urinated on an avatar of their god.
  • Only the four natural 20 death saving throws in a row managed to win the battle and defeat the last surviving bullywug shaman. You just can't keep a good halfling down.

Gupsparkle Best - Svirfneblin Wizard

  • Round 1: Cast Polymorph on the Shadow Demon turning it into a toad.
  • Round 2: Grapple the toad - again with STR:8, but it was just a toad.
  • Round 3: Dimension Door 500 feet straight up and drop the toad then Feather Fall back down to the ground.

Gupsparkle Best - Svirfneblin Wizard

  • During a Curse of Strahd campaign he learned the secrets to becoming a vampire and to becoming a lich. At the end of the game he decided to become a lich.
  • His close friend in the party was a paladin, and the interaction between the two as Gupspakle's alignment changed - due to bad choices, unfortunate circumstances, and adverse luck - from Neutral Good to Neutral Evil was epic!
  • During our next campaign, Out of the Abyss, the player who had played the paladin now played a goblin warlock whose patron was The Gupsparkle.

Brevis Facultus - Human Sorcerer

  • I had to miss a session during our Out of the Abyss campaign and sent the group a strategy guide for how to play Brevis as they planned an ambush on 2 demon lords. The feedback was great with one of the players saying it was one of their most memorable sessions as Brevis took out both demon lords and most of their minions almost single-handedly by following the planned strategy. It's a crying shame that I missed it.

Brevis Facultus - Human Sorcerer

  • From 30 feet up in the air Brevis cast Prismatic Spray on 50+ foes milling below him on the ground. The GM just said , "No, you aren't going to roll all those dice."

... and there are so many more!
