D&D Writer and Online Content Creator.
In July 2018, Makenzie De Armas played her first game of Dungeons & Dragons. It wasn't anything terribly remarkable—just a simple quest to rescue some children from a band of hobgoblins. Yet that single game would change her life forever.
In 2019, Makenzie would make her actual-play debut in One on One: A D&D Duet Campaign, a Dungeons & Dragons 5e podcast that features a world she co-created alongside Dennis Aldea. Shortly after, she joined the casts of several streamed actual-play shows, working with various high-profile channels including Encounter Roleplay, WebDM, and Scratticus Academy.
This eventually led her to becoming one of the fastest emerging creative forces in the online tabletop roleplaying game community. Makenzie has since published multiple best-selling titles on DMs Guild, including the mental health adventure i've been and the magical candy supplement Knarl's Candy Compendium, and is now one of the writers for Matt Colville's Welcome to Capital, to be released soon. At GenCon 2019, Makenzie was a featured expert on the Tabletop Role-Playing Games and Learning panel hosted by Thomas Conmy, and she organized both the Worldbuilding for Lazy Dungeon Masters and Narratives with Numbers: Storytelling Through Game Mechanics panels for PAX Unplugged 2019.
When not gaming, Makenzie is studying for her BFA in Creative Writing at Chapman University. And when she's not studying, she can usually be found rock climbing, napping, and/or drinking a concerning amount of caffeine.
