John Foster

John Foster is one of CorporateDM's referees. He started with Red Box D&D 38 years ago and also ran his first campaign as a DM shortly after becoming a player. He is a Forgotten Realms enthusiast and specializes in the lore and history of Faerûn. He currently hosts 2nd Edition, 3.5rd Edition, and 5th Edition D&D games, and Pathfinder 1, Pathfinder 2, Old School Essentials, and Castles & Crusades on the Fantasy Grounds platform for automation, but with emphasis on theater of the mind.

His overall career has been in Technology, Finance, Accounting, and Law. His games tend to mirror his path as strategy based with chartered adventuring companies, guilds, mercenary contracts, governmental licenses, and more.

The Forgotten Realms is a magical place to him, and he will bring that magic to you. He focuses on intrigue, moral quandaries, geopolitics, trade, mystery, and crime solving. It is a fusion of the high strangeness of the X-Files meets Scooby-Doo & Buffy The Vampire Slayer/Angel with a small dose of Law and Order. There is lots of rubbing elbows with the nobility and the authorities, but still enough commoners at the tavern needing help to keep most adventurers busy.

John has studied the lore of Faerûn since the Forgotten Realms setting was released and strives to provide a near canon historical experience in the Realms, with original content that avoids conflict with existing lore and official adventures. He keeps up with Ed Greenwood’s blog and social media. He is also a Legend of the Realms supporter of Ed Greenwood and participates in monthly video calls with Mr. Greenwood to be up to date on the latest developments in Faerûn.

Adventures focus on the pillars of roleplay and exploration. You will find multi-dimensional beings in the world with complex motivations you will need to explore. Almost all scenarios can be solved without violence.
