    Support Worker

    Hi there, I’m Andrew and I’m 26 years old. I’d describe myself as someone who is really easy going who definitely doesn’t take life too seriously. I’m always keen to help out those around me when problems arise as I find good deeds and paying it forward always comes back around. I love getting outdoors, coffee, yoga and meditation, but my main passion in life is music. Playing guitar and writing/performing music is a big part of my life and most weekends you’ll find my either in the studio with my band or playing shows around Brisbane.

    Tom

    Dungeon Master - DisasterMasterDM

    Dungeons and Dragons is a co-operative fantasy roleplaying game in which each player takes on the persona of an heroic adventurer and uses their wits and creativity to overcome challenging adventures set out by the Dungeon Master. From ancient temples, to the mysteries that lurk at the bottom of the sea, Dungeons and Dragons is a catharsis from the mundanity of modern adventuring to work and school and a step into the fantastic realm of imagination where the magic of creativity is the most powerful tool at your disposal. As a Dungeon Master of over 10 years I take delight in presenting professional, engaging and well organized games for players of every skill level.
