Bio

My style and approach to RPGs is heavily informed by the Story/Indie games movement and such games as “Fiasco”, “In A Wicked Age”, and “Vast & Starlit”. It’s a highly cooperative, “Yes, and…”, improv theater approach.

Please see my “Homepage” link for more info on my Storium Narrator Style.

[FYI: I joined Storium in 2014 but the games I was playing and running at that time all failed (it was Beta, so that’s not surprising). I didn’t come back to Storium until 2020 and when I did I ‘retired’ two characters and ‘completed’ two games I was narrating that hadn’t had a post since 2014.]
