REVIEWS


'Hired John for an 8h adventure for a friend's bachelor party and had a blast. 2 years later we still reminisce about that night and continuing where we left off.  FYI my friends and I have no D&D background. I hired John for an 8h noob friendly adventure for my friend's bachelor party. John was responsive, courteous, and professional from the moment I inquired about his service all the way to the end of the night. He arrived on time with all of his equipment and got us started pretty quickly on our fantasy adventure. John brought along props, a speaker for background music/sound effects, a costume, and some surprisingly fantastic voice acting.

It very clear that John had a lot of experience with D&D. He taught us what we needed to know in a short amount of time and guided us through the game despite our lack of experience. He is a quick thinker that took our inebriated decisions and..."creativity"and seamlessly incorporated it into our adventure. With all of the materials he brought along and the voice acting where he played out multiple roles, he was able to immerse us into the world. Not once did we feel disengaged from the game.

I would highly recommend John if D&D was something you and your friend's were interested in starting or if you just want to have a fun one time experience.

P.S. Don't forget to feed your DM if you're doing a long session :) '

CBC AUDIO DOCUMENTARY


I have been operating for over a year now, and in the process I have come across many wonderful opportunities. One such opportunity was when I was approached by Pete Morey of CBC to do an audio documentary on my business. I of course jumped on this, and over the course of the summer we did several recordings in the studio and here at my 'dungeon'. The finished product, a 27 minute audio documentary, will be aired on CBC radio (99.1) on October 31st, at 11:30 am, and on November 3rd at 1:00 pm. It will also be aired on SiriusXM on Oct. 31 at 11:30 am, Nov. 3 at 8:00 am, and Nov. 6

 

Below is the website to find the story on, 'The Doc Project' (CBC Radio), which includes the podcast of the audio documentary on Dungeon Master for Hire:

                    BADBADNOTGOOD VIDEO - LAVENDER                 


Around the time that I started this business, I had the good fortune enough to make some connections with a some awesome individuals from a production company who thought that a Dungeons and Dragons scenario would be a great idea for a music video for one of their clients; a music group called Badbadnotgood.  This video was directed by Fantavious Fritz and produced by Jason Aita. The band, Badbadnotgood, includes Matthew Tavares on keys, Chester Hansen on bass, Leland Whitty on saxophone, and Alexander Sowinski on drums. They are known for their interpretations of hip hop tracks and their collaborations with Tyler, The Creator, Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown, and Ghostface Killah. 


Anyway, enjoy the video, and watch for my promotional bit at the end. I love the way it turned out. A very cool experience.  My thanks to the band and to Fantavious Fritz and Jason Aita for including me in this project.
