Choose Your Adventure

In addition to working in digital libraries-land, I also am a roleplaying game enthusiast and have dabbled in writing and publishing adventures and supplements on platforms such as Roll20. The adventures revolve around a small city by the name of Shadetown and the series attempts to focus more on collaborative storytelling and less on dungeon delving and monster hunting (though those show up as well), using the 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons ruleset.

Also, as a fun exercise during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I started a “Choose Your Own Adventure” style game via email with a bunch of old D&D friends. Each day the players would get a story prompt and have three options for what path they’d like to choose. Each player had the option of voting for one choice and whichever got the most votes was the path the story progressed down. The full story can be found in the PDF below.
