The GM Tim
Proud queer advocate within the gaming community, this Theatre-of-the-Mind Game Master runs multiple regular private campaigns for groups around the world. Tim is also honoured to be an adventure writer for the D&D Adventurers League, a regular judge at conventions and a GM Mentor for Baldman Games. In his brand he streams Star Trek: Lost Voyages—a Liveplay Star Trek Adventures game—on Twitch, hosts a monthly Book Club that celebrates diversity and inspiration for tabletop role players, be they GMs or Player Characters, and GMs Fierce Adventures—a monthly live D&D Drag show. Tim's theatre of the mind style leaves you blissfully exhausted and wanting more. With an unwavering enthusiasm, The GM Tim weaves a story and world together with the players - he's even been known to use castle rooms to set up a scene or a combat rather than a map. Character creation and group cohesion often start months before the event. In the games you'll get a full range of levels as you start low and work your way up through the various sessions.
