Greetings heroes, and welcome to The Deliberate Myth. 


Founded in January, 2017, The Deliberate Myth aims to give an engaging, creative, and completely custom outlet for creative minds of all ages.  Allow us tell the tale of Seth and Hopper, your Dungeon Masters.



Seth has been a fully accredited D&D devotee, player, and DM since 1980, when he made his first character Elrod, a blatant mash-up of all the best elves of Middle Earth.  The game very quickly wormed its way into his brain as a kid, where (like any good and proper brain parasite) it took up permanent residence in his imagination.  No matter what random encounter life threw, the desire to create, explore, and imagine never left.


Now Seth is the dad of two remarkable daughters who, through some incredible combination of fate, good luck, and good parenting, have become just as enthralled.  Naturally, Seth started running games for them and their friends.  It was amazing and fun and exciting and hilarious... but it wasn’t enough.


Seth saw the unfiltered creativity and the unapologetic courage of these kids as they played, through both the nostalgic eyes of his younger self and the adult eyes of his current parental incarnation, and knew he had to do more.  The whispering wyrm inside his brain demanded that he share this passion and love of the hobby with as many people as possible.



Hopper has been playing and running D&D for approximately 65% of his life, starting early on with slapstick adventures in 3rd edition before graduating to running four simultaneous campaigns in his own world using 5th Edition.

Hopper began his adventure as a level 1 Druid, born in Maine to two teachers who encouraged exploration, love of nature and learning. Between that and growing up with a passion for fantasy and science fiction Hopper has spent most of his fault life working professionally with trees, cultivating an appreciation for the growth and guidance of life.

He channels most of his free time and creative energy to building, growing and developing stories and worlds and relationships using table top role playing games as a medium of communication, social engagement and personal growth.

Thus, The Deliberate Myth was born.  It is our sincerest hope that we can help the wizards and warriors in your family (young and old alike) explore, create, and enjoy this incredible world of creativity and adventure.   Join us and discover how your story unfolds.  See you at the table!
