Hello! My name is Andy and I am the one who wears the Melted Mask. I’m the proprietor, the bartender, the guy who checks your coat at the door, the shady character in the corner, the bard strumming her lute near the fire pit and the gentleman in the handlebar moustache assuring you that the soup of the day is a solid choice.
I am a Dungeon Master. About 10 years ago (comparatively recently in DM circles) I started playing tabletop games and instantly became hooked. Our first system was Call of Cthulhu–that’s the spooky one–and I have since moved on to Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, Pathfinder, Paranoia and many other games. Now and then I even dabble in writing my own systems and settings, and I am reliably informed that they are “extremely weird, but in a good way, probably.” I’ve played at other people’s tables, at my own, with friends and with strangers; I’ve run games online and off, with and without props.
Dungeon Mastering is my bag, my thing, my raison d’être. A childhood filled with drama (as in plays, not traumatic events), a background in film and literature studies, and a penchant for bad puns all coalesce into a human being built to entertain and engage with people. I like stories and fun and sharing both of those with as many folks as possible.
