Blastin’ Astrid is a cosplayer, Game Master, fantasy nerd, and creative project fiend. A D20 cruise veteran, Astrid’s games feature big monsters and big NPC personalities, featuring a balance of role play and combat. With a mix of serious and silly, Astrid seeks to tell collaborative and epic stories of adventure with her players.

I’ve been running TTRPG games for for 6 years, and have been a lifelong fantasy nerd. Ive GM’d for events like the D20 Cruise, FanExpo Dallas, FanFestival, and for charity causes led by Capes for Kindness. Recently, I’ve partnered with my D&D group to form a company called Five Sided Fates, an all female LLC that puts on D&D Events in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex in Texas. Our next event is FateCon 2024: a 3 day convention of D&D games for attendees, panels, live-play sessions for attendees to watch, vendor exhibits, a cosplay competition, and more!

What kind of Game Master are you:

I strive to achieve a balance between RP, combat, and exploration, but I will admit to loving role play above all things. I enjoy embodying one of my NPCs in cosplay when I DM for extra fun and immersion!

What kind of games do you like to run? Gritty, more realism, high fantasy, quirky, casual, etc.

I enjoy high fantasy, heavy magic use, steam punk influence, extra-planar travel, and colorful characters!

What RPG Games/Systems are you familiar with running?

Dungeons and Dragons 5E, Call of Cthulhu 7E

Do you have any projects, products or things you would like to share?

I’ll be DMing for the Add Advantage crew, available on Twitch, YouTube, and in podcast form!
