About Loren the GM
About Me:
30-something D&D DM and avid gamer. My background is in film and television, and I bring storytelling front and center to D&D. I love helping my groups have epic adventures. My DM style tends to be collaborative and inclusive. I like to say "yes" to my players as a means to create exciting, memorable moments. I like to bring characters alive through voices (I'm always happy when I can pull out my Scottish dwarf voice), and I like to use music to set the tone for each scene. To me, the more I can do to emotionally involve my players, the more immersed in the world they will be, making the game better for everyone.

Quotes from Players:

I have played some form or another of D&D for 8 years now, and nearly two of those years I’ve known Loren. He is without a doubt the most creative and talented person I’ve had the pleasure of playing with. Not only are his games fun, but the decisions he makes for the characters in the game make sense (and usually lead to an interesting story I feel excited about uncovering). If you like action, suspense, and drama, Loren is your man.
- Thomas B.

I've played with Loren for over a year and a half. We've gone through a number of WOTC modules. Loren has done a great job of managing the stories but also adding things to it related to our character backgrounds. He comes up with voices and personalities for NPCs which are great; I believe he's been fair in any rulings on gameplay; he's always prepared. I would highly recommend Loren as a DM.
- Brad

Loren is the best game master that I've had the pleasure to roll with because he puts his players first. For a year and a half, he has been dedicated to my fun, my character's story, and the creation and maintenance of a world that responds realistically and dynamically to every single bat-:):):):) crazy scheme and plot that I throw at him. Loren is a master listener and will work with you to create the fully-realized gaming experience that you clicked on this listing to find.
- James

Loren is a fantastic GM, and I look forward to game night every week. He knows the modules he runs back to front, and prepares thoroughly by making his own maps and custom content. He's a very fair DM, with a great sense of humour. I can't recommend him enough!
-Name Witheld

A magnificent storyteller! Loren keeps the balance between a challenge and too easy perfectly. He blends fighting and RP with grace and allows us to explore things and keep true to our characters. He is prepared and ready for whatever random thing our group decides to do (you can talk to the townspeople about claiming that run down keep -- after all you did clean out the undead from it.) His maps are great quality, his characters unique with different voices and personalities. He makes decisions that make sense for the story or the character, and is willing to listen and discuss reasons why a character may or may not be able to know or do something, and we can always TRY and see what happens. (Roll those dice!) Truly a wonderful experience you do NOT want to miss out!
-Finn

Loren Is a great GM. I'm currently in a campaign with him and fully enjoying my time. His stories are well developed, his character voices are great, and he is more than happy to work with the players to make something happen. Give him a chance and you won't be disappointed.

  • 05:37 AM - Dire Bare quoted Loren the GM in post The Final Announcement from The Descent Live Stream: Eberron Hardcover
    From the Twitch Chat, it sounds like it will be a different book than Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron. They already announced months ago that IF they did an Eberron hardcover release, it would overlap with, but be a different book than "The Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron". If they keep true to what was announced earlier (and if I am remembering correctly), the Wayfinder's Guide will be updated with the final version of the Artificer class, and maybe some other stuff to. The new hardcover will probably also include the Artificer, and maybe some other material from Wayfinder's Guide, but will be "different" and include material NOT in the Wayfinder's Guide.

    From the Twitch Chat, it sounds like it will be a different book than Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron. If I had to lay a bet, I'd say different but not All New, All Different. It'll have new material and expanded material but won't throw out anything. The rules bits like races and magic items and Dragonmarks as substitute subraces will carry over. The setting bits will be expanded from the rather brief current entries. Add in the Artificer once it's done, add some new art and maps, add a Monsters and NPCs section. Bam, that's probably 90% of your hardcover right there.

  • 09:36 PM - Mercador quoted Loren the GM in post Bethesda Comments On Accusations Of Plagiarizing D&D Adventure
    As I mentioned, investigating as they say they are doing is the right thing to do. If it was internal gross incompetence, I'd hope an investigation would find that and they'd deal with it (and any other issues that might come to light if this is the case). And if it is a contractor who did this, then that is what they should deal with. Too often, someone hired a "friend" contractor to do the work and the work is badly done. The "someone" that hired the bad contractor don't get blame for it unfortunately.
  • 06:00 AM - Charlaquin quoted Loren the GM in post Bethesda Comments On Accusations Of Plagiarizing D&D Adventure
    I'd say the article is misleading on this. They have not issued an apology, they issued a statement. I wouldn't expect an apology until they finish their investigation and deal with things - there are too many legal things involved for them to admit specific fault until everything has been legally dealt with. Solid point. Hopefully there's a more substantial and direct apology once they conclude their investigation. If there is, I'll gladly eat crow here.

    I'm not really sure what else people want from Bethesda on this. They hired a writer who turned in the work, they published it, and then pulled it when they found out it was plagiarized. I don't expect the publishers at the company to have read every adventure booklet published, so there is no reason to expect they should have caught this before publishing. Pulling it is the right thing to do, investigating exactly what happened is the right thing to do (as well as figuring out ways to try to keep it from happening again), and keeping the public informed is the right thing to do. For starters, they could do a search. But mostly, they could find out who contracted that guy on what basis? The contractor is an :):):):):):):), alright but there's someone within Bethesda that hired that guy. If I was in charge, I would like to know who and what others things that person took decisions on.

I dunno, maybe have someone at the company who can competently run some keyword searches online for at least 15 minutes as part of their QC procedure before publishing?

  • 07:59 PM - Turgenev quoted Loren the GM in post First Impressions – Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage
    The maps in the map pack are roughly 8.5 x 11 prints of the maps, not suitable for miniature use. Think of them more as handouts you can give to players that they can write on, etc. Here is a picture from one of the Facebook group 103003 Loren the GM, do you mind if I use this picture on my Facebook page? I don't have any copies of the book/map pack (yet). Cheers, Tim Hartin
