Missoula's Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention

MisCon 32: May 25 - 28, 2018 Missoula, Montana

Dean Keith (Vader)

MisCon 32 Panel Volunteer

Dean has been running/playing RPGs for 30 years.

Dean started gaming with friends as a teenager. Within a couple months of his first game he was running his own games and was hooked. 30 years later he joined Black Shield Productions and the rest is history.
Dean likes doing light-hearted, fun games giving players a chance to stretch their imaginations. Occasionally he will do a more serious game to test out new concepts. He prefers rules light systems but enjoys trying out new systems of all types.
Regardless of the type of game or system used, if the players are having fun, he is having fun.
