Your DM likes thisDM Darastrix: Gonzalo Campoverde

Our founder learned about roleplaying games after chatting in some X-Files forum. Someone there mentioned a game that would allow you to investigate paranormal phenomena. Gonz did a little research and found out about the plans for something called “Dark Matter” for the Alternity game, just released by TSR. As fate would have it, when Wizards of the Coast bought TSR and started planning D&D 3rd Edition, he started working as Organized Play Manager for the official local distributor of that company in Peru, Game Zone, where he could put his hands in a review copy of the Player’s Handbook almost before anyone else. The rest is history.

In love with fantasy, dragons and sci-fi since he was a little kid, Gines has always enjoyed stories. He found out about D&D many years ago, but it was only after he attended a Free Comic Book day event with one of his best friends that he actually started to play it. He has played 3.5, Pathfinder and 5e and he decided to become a DM for the 5e due to the potential the game offers to unleash his imagination, create whole worlds full of adventure, make new nerdy friends and introduce new people to the hobby. Hoarder of dice, books and miniatures, he won’t stop running the game for as long as he draws breath.

  • Played D&D for the first time: 2016
