Arcadum grew up playing video games with his friends, with his favorite genre being fighting games. One day, when they were at his friend’s house, his friend’s dad decided to introduce them to Dungeons and Dragons (DND) with a copy of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition. He was 13 years old at the time. It has remained his favorite game ever since. IN fact, he even spent his summer holidays trying to create his perfect world and was only finally satisfied on his fifth attempt.
After high school, he joined the military. He then went on to work at Home Depo. In 2010 while still at Home Depo, he discovered that it was possible to run DND games online. He therefore began doing so, and soon became so popular that he had months-long waiting lists for people who wanted to play with him. Eventually, he was approached by a group who offered to pay him 150% his hourly wage at Home Depo to run a game for them for one day. This slowly paved the way for him to start charging others for his services, so that being a professional Dungeon Master is now his fulltime job.
It took time for it to happen in the beginning due to the number of trolls online, but he stuck to it and has been doing it ever since.
He first started streaming on Twitch in July 2016 when he got into the Overwatch beta and decided to just try roleplaying as a knight. However, he never really explored Twitch outside of his on content.
Things changed for him gradually, when he unknowingly began acting as the Dungeon Master for streamers such as MoonMoon, A_Seagull and Surefour. He then met ster, who asked him to livestream his first ever DND game with him in later November 2016. This was the catalyst that lead to his streaming campaigns with other streamers and friends and started to see steady growth in his channel over the years that followed.
His language isn’t clean.
His wife has been supportive of him since the beginning.
