About CanisDirus

The Gentleman Geologist Game Master:

"Thrust fault, mass wasting - Rocks fall, everybody dies...and then your bodies wind up in a subduction zone, just to add insult to injury."

Hi, I'm Mike Bramnik aka Dire (or Canis Dirus), Venture Captain for the Bloomington Indiana area as part of Pathfinder Society Organized Play. I'm currently in the PhD program at Indiana University in Bloomington in the field of military geoscience, and you can find me every Monday (and some Saturdays) at The Common Room helping new players build characters and get familiar with the world of Golarion, or running games.

Feel free to drop me a line here or in email if there's anything I can help you with, or if you just want to hang out and talk!

Will talk about Pathfinder, folk metal music, rocks, earthquakes, military history, teaching, puns, bad jokes, or just about anything else for hours if you catch my attention.


"At my table, this game is escapist fantasy for all. You may have as much freedom as your imagination allows, so long as it doesn't impinge on another's enjoyment. I welcome all players at my table. I promise that if something makes you uncomfortable at a game, I will address it discretely, professionally, and completely. If I do something wrong, I want you to let me know. I pledge that my games are a safe haven of fun role-playing and baddie slaying."

(AKA: "An' it harm none, do as thou wilt.")


"The godly tongue distills honey, mankind's tether of amber and gold.
This is my verdict. For neither are kingdoms conquered by iron,
Nor dies the mighty by the spear.

Men are felled by what they fail to believe in."


And since someone asked me to put this together...
