Answers to Life, the Universe and Roleplaying
(New blogs every TUESDAY [probably] until I get a steady supply of questions. I may occasionally post twice a week.)
Welcome to Ask the Dungeon Master! As the Dungeon Master, I am an authority on all things in life. I have been a DM for over fifteen years, and the trials and tribulations faced throughout my campaigns have gifted me with insights that extend well beyond the mundane physical world.
I welcome questions on nearly every topic: relationships, the universe, or the mating habits of the honey badger, but for obvious reasons, what I know best is all things Geek. In regard to all questions on roleplaying, I would prefer to avoid topics such as rule interpretation and the details of game mechanics, mostly because there exist a hundred other blogs and forums just for that purpose.
I would prefer questions seeking advice on actual ROLEplaying; whether you’re a Dungeon Master trying to learn how to be the best DM you can be, or a player with a really irritating Dungeon Master, I have the answers you seek!
You can see me in action in One Die Short.
