Customer Testimonials

Mariam did a great job of including a group of internet strangers with differing ttrpg experience in a game that none of us had played before. They built a strong game quickly based on our characters and kept everyone engaged, giving us a great time and a chance to play a game that requires a lot of care and skill to run.”

“I loved how Mariam took us through character creation! It really felt collaborative, which I appreciated. They also did a great job of voicing the creepiness of the setting, and then coming up with a resolution that fit the story the group of us told.”

“They did a fantastic job of setting up the world and creating a really good atmosphere. I really felt the slow creep of dread as we went through the house. I was worried that the zoom platform would take away from the experience but it didn’t at all. Everything flowed very well.”
