Cai the GM

Welcome to my new lair on the interwebs. I’m gluing bits together as fast as I can to get a new website to support my new campaigns and one-shots over at StartPlaying.Games. If you are looking for something in particular, and you can’t find it yet, please visit The About page to find your most convenient method of contacting me.

Professional Game Mastery & Bespoke Accessories

For decades people have told me I should give running games professionally a go and I’ve always shrugged it off as even more fantastic than the worlds I run games in, but the pandemic and my resulting financial collapse has made me take the leap. It’s been going quite well so far and the income from games gives me the opportunity to invest more time and resources in them making it better for both my players and for me as well.

You can see my current offering on the calendar below. If you’d like to request a specific game you can contact me on my Discord community.

For a few years I’ve handcrafted dice boxes, dice towers, and other accessories. I lovingly make each item from hardwood, then I can laser engrave a design of your choice on even use your own custom designs, I used to sell these on Etsy, but sales slowly dried up during the pandemic and I found myself spending more money on Etsy advertising than I was making. Perhaps in the future I’ll be able to offer them again.

I am also getting back into producing adventures for some of the games we play, where IP laws allow it, of course the late unpleasantness means I’ll be moving away from the old system and more toward Pathfinder 2, Year Zero Engine, and Chaosium’s Basic Role Playing, you can find those on DriveThru RPG.
