Sawyer's first experiences with D&D were with his father and siblings, which instilled in him a love for storytelling and acting at a young age. As he got older and more involved in gaming as a DM, Sawyer studied shows like Critical Role which helped catapult him forward into becoming a better DM. Since then he has taken several improv and acting classes, and has introduced a lot of people to the game in college and onward. Sawyer enjoys using his improv and acting background to NPCs and villains to make for compelling encounters and outcomes. He believes that the games should be as immersive an experience as possible, and so he includes music playlists, ambiences and sounds, and even themed food and drinks for his sessions.
Sawyer runs the following games/systems:
Dungeons and Dragons (Both 5th and 1st Editions), Call of Cthulhu (7th Edition), Kids on Bikes,
Historia (5th Edition), City of Mist, Fifth Age (A Cyberpunk 5th Edition Supplement), Adventures in Middle Earth (5th Edition), Dragonraid (1st Edition), Age of Rebellion, Edge of the Empire and
Force and Destiny Star Wars Role Playing Games (Fantasy Flight).
