My name is Dave and I have been running rpg games for over 42 years. Join us for all things Roleplaying.
Don't just dream of adventure, rather gather your friends and create one together...
I have been running games for over 42 years. All of my players have witnessed the level of dedication I bring to the table. The time I take to prepare, and customize each experience for the individual players. I try to help each player develop their own story arcs, and customizations to make each character truly unique.
I also have worked closely with other GM’s to develop our skills to help provide a fun and exciting experience for our players. I have a large collection of RPG’s totaling over 200 so far, and these have given me a wide breadth of experience and techniques to pull from. Please see the testimonials from previous players for examples of their own experiences.
There are many reasons why a pay to play game has value. First among them is that not everyone has time to be able to put a game together and dedicate the time it takes to run a successful game. Second, paying to play offers incentive for both players and the GM to show up and be prepared to play. Third, those who pay to play generally approach the game more seriously. And lastly, there are costs associated with running a game, especially in a virtual environment. These operational costs include but are not limited to the purchase of props, maps, virtual figures and more, all of which are purchased by me to be used by you the player.

Virtual gaming provides a rich and detailed form of gaming that easily competes with regular tabletop gaming. While I miss the comraderie of my friends at the table, and the sound of dice rolling, the virtual environment allows for interesting adventures with custom maps, and detailed lighting. So don't wait for Covid to be over, gather your friends and come game now!
I’ve frequently played with Dave Hulegaard as gamemaster, and have observed him gamemastering for others. I have observed the following strengths in Dave as a gamemaster.
● Dave is a master storyteller, helping players to stay immersed in the drama of a session.
● Dave is hardworking in preparing for sessions and campaigns.
● Dave is skillful in handling tension at the table. If two players become frustrated with each other, he has a number of deescalating approaches for bringing everyone back into the fold.
● Dave’s decades of experience gives him a fund of quick answers to draw upon when a game mechanics question threatens to derail the drama of the moment.
● Dave has played and run more games than most people ever knew existed. This means he can run whatever game system your group is using. I highly recommend Dave as a gamemaster for any group and any system. Sincerely, Asher Royce
Dave is an amazing GM. I’m new to the world of DND but I’ve always been fascinated by it. During the pandemic, I started watching Critical Role and Dimension 20 on Youtube. So, when I had the opportunity to join a game I was so excited and nervous. Dave walked me through the differences between the systems I’ve watched vs Cypher System and was incredibly gracious and never made me feel like an idiot. Dave is adaptable, he uses the books as a guide but is more than willing to negotiate and see if something can be used in a unique or odd way. He has a collaborative game style and is a master at world building so that we can get the most out of our story each session. Sometimes he must be a herder of squirrels when it comes to our group of players, but he does so with ease. His years of GMing and facilitating are evident every time I sit at his virtual table, and I cannot wait to see how it will all evolve in the years to come.
More than a decade ago Dave helped guide me into the world of table top gaming. More than any other GM or player he taught me how to roll (pun intended) with cooperative nature of gaming with others. Dave has a unique talent to make strangers friends by welcoming them to his table. Whether module or homebrew he runs well thought out sessions that are fun, challenging and immersing.
Dave is the best gamemaster I've played with, and that's saying a lot since I've been roleplaying since I was a kid. His games are exciting and fun, with laughs throughout, and he has a knack for open world play and impromptu imagination. His games are an experience you will remember." J.K.
Dave has been my first permanent Game Master for 3 years, and he got me back into the game, especially with the Cypher System. He is helpful, knowledgeable on the rules, and a benevolent GM. As a new player, he helped walk me through how to play and got me excited to play superheroes, horror, space and fantasy type games. He is a stellar individual and an absolute joy to play with. K.S.
