My name is Derek Ruiz, I have been a player and GM for over 19 years. I started with Advanced D&D but quickly moved to 3rd edition. I started DMing shortly afterward and have been a forever-GM since then. With a close group of friends and family, we’ve played a mix of long-term games and one-shots in tons of systems: 3rd, 4th, and 5th edition D&D, Call of Cthulhu, GURPS, Mouse Guard, Torchbearer, Burning Wheel, B/X D&D, Blades in the Dark, Scum and Villainy, and Dungeon Crawl Classics. I love my craft and live for this game, roleplaying gives us a chance to live countless lives and experiment to our mind’s content. Since I went pro, I later partnered with Arthur Rouise who takes care of illustrative work, copy-editing, isometric creations, social media sites, ad budgets, marketing, VTT sites, and all sorts of backstage stuff that make our publication schedule possible.
