TheAlpineDM was founded to empower people of all skill levels to maximize fun while playing Dungeons & Dragons. Here you will find an assortment of tips, worksheets, and supplemental advice to take your gaming sessions from “Yeah we killed some goblins…it was pretty cool“, to “Remember when Adavin distracted the leader of the Krowmac Goblin clan with Dancing Lights, allowing Witkowski to slip in and assassinate the High Priestess without being noticed.”
I wholeheartedly believe that the relationships forged through DnD (and tabletop games in general) are among some of the most wholesome, fulfilling, and genuine connections you can make with another human being.
I, Aaron Keyes (The Alpine DM), was born and raised in beautiful Northern Michigan, along the shores of Lake Huron. After graduating from the University of Michigan – and after a brief but intense mid-youth crisis – I fulfilled a long-time goal of moving to a ski town in Colorado. Here I work as an Analytical Radiochemist for an environmental company, but in my spare time I love anything and everything related to nature. This includes: hiking, camping, disc golf, climbing, dancing, and snowboarding.
I’ve ran a few short homebrew campaigns, finished Tomb of Annihilation, and recently started an Eberron campaign. I’m constantly learning new techniques and perspectives related to D&D and tabletop gaming, and I simply want to share my knowledge and passion with the world.
