Simon Fiasco, a.k.a., The Jovial GM, is a long-time player of role-playing games stretching all the way back to 1981. His first taste of what would become a lifelong hobby began with one of the earliest editions of Dungeons & Dragons, and he was hooked from that moment on. Since that time, he’s played every edition of D&D, plus dozens of other RPGs, including Pathfinder, Shadowrun, Star Wars (all the various editions!), Aberrant, various Fate games, Rolemaster, Amber Diceless, 13th Age, and many more. His current favorite is Fantasy Flight Games’ Genesys RPG, which encourages more narrative play through an innovative dice system.
An experienced writer and improvisational actor holding a degree in psychology, Simon creates massive, living worlds into which his players can immerse themselves. He currently lives in Wichita, Kansas with his amazing partner and three obstreperous cats.
