Simon Moody

Curated Play Program GM

Simon is a lifelong storyteller who started GMing in high school and has continued guiding games for the past two decades. He uses his experience as a performer and educator to welcome new players to the roleplaying hobby and collaboratively create compelling narratives based on each group’s interests. He enjoys games that facilitate memorable worldbuilding, give players tools for dramatic roleplaying, and have a splash of high-octane action. His favorite Magpie titles right now are Pasion de las Pasiones and Root: the Roleplaying Game. Outside of GMing, Simon is a TRPG designer, co-directs the Boston-based larp company Enkindle Storytelling, streams RPG APs on Twitch as a core cast member of All Nerds Here, and is a voice actor for the queer sci-fi/fantasy audio drama The Penumbra Podcast.

Customer Testimonials

Simon did a good job incorporating everyone’s characters into the story. I think everyone felt welcome, and he seemed genuinely interested in running the game.”

Simon’s GM style is a pleasure to take part in as a player. He creates a sandbox and lets the PC’s run rampant in it, but always leaves a clear path to the goal. This allows for shenanigans because the players know it won’t require too much to progress. We’re there to have fun and Simon lets us have exactly that!”

“I have to mention how impressed I am with his ability to improvise scenarios. As a GM for my close friends I struggle to run games if I don’t have a solid foundation to work off of. That’s back stories, motives, maps, stats, what color shoes an NPC’s wearing! Sure, that stuff comes with time and experience. I just thought it was noteworthy. Twice now I’ve had him as my GM and I’d happily have him as my GM a third time!”
