My name is Patrick, aka “THE GOD DAMN DM”, and I’ve created this blog to share my views on tabletop gaming.

I began my gaming career in college when I was introduced to the 3.5 editon of Dungeons & Dragons. Thanks to some great friends and a unforgiving DM (Dungeon Master), my love for gaming was kindled and the fires were lit.
Since the days of playing games with pen and paper in my buddy’s living room, I have evolved into… well… hosting games with pen and paper in MY living room. More of a lateral step, but I stepped up years ago to take the reigns of my own campaigns and have loved every moment of it since.
I feel that tabletop gaming fulfills my creative side and desire to be a writer by letting me spin tales of heroics and shenanigans on the fly for my wonderful players. It’s been a childhood dream, and something I keep chiseling away at each day in between the real world jobs we all have to do.
In the future, you can look forward to:
- Articles regarding game concepts, mechanics, and inspiration.
- A podcast with nerdy content and a Q&A segment you can participate in.
- Custom material to use in your own campaigns.
I hope you follow me on this journey as I hone my skills and work on helping others fine tune theirs as well. If you enjoy what I post feel free to share it with friends, family, players, co-workers, strangers on the bus… anyone willing to listen!
Thanks for reading, and keep on rolling!
…I need to work on a better sign off…
