Taran Currington

Game Master and Storyteller

A player of many different role-playing games such as Dungeons and dragons, Pathfinder, Exalted & World of darkness for 18 years. 10 of those years were spent leading & teaching those games as what is called a Dungeon Master (or Gamemaster).

Welcome, to the world of Dungeons & Dragons

Hello, My name is Taran. I have been playing and running games like Dungeons & Dragons for almost 20 years. As a dungeon master, my job is to create a world and setting for a group of individuals to explore and adventure in. To write narratives and characters for them to interact with and even provide challenges for them to overcome.

As a storyteller, the most challenging and fulfilling aspect of this hobby (for me at least), is to run the game in such a way that each and every player is having fun and feels like they are all contributing to the overall experience. Because that is what this game is, at the end of the day; collaborative story telling! The challenge of writing a story, only to have 2 – 5 different authors come and add there own ideas into it always keeps things interesting and fresh. I never truly know how any one session will go until we finish for the day.

In my class, I’ll show you the basics of how to get started and anything else you’ll need to know about playing one of the greatest role-playing games in the world. Whatever level of experience you are at, there is always something more that can be learned. So whether you want to learn in a group setting, or have a more one-on-one kind of learning experience, I will help you however you need to succeed.
