Portsmouth Escape Room | Meet your Game Master: Nate
About twenty-four years ago, the world changed forever, as Nathaniel Adair was born. Upon his arrival on this earth he struck out to bring peace and joy to all, with… mixed success. He trained for two years under the watchful eye of his educators in the mystic arts of Video Production, has trained as a performer of the art of theatrical performance including the esteemed work of Shakespeare, and leads a valiant group of adventurers in a weekly Dungeons and Dragons campaign (he likes wizards).
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT ESCAPE ROOMS?
I’ve always thought they were a really rad way to spend time, express your creativity and solve puzzles. As a puzzle enthusiast, the notion of a room full of puzzles, based around the puzzles in it is just spectacularly fun. Plus, as the leader of a puzzling group, this is a natural fit for me.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PORTSMOUTH ESCAPE ROOM GAME?
I have a personal attachment to the Roswell Incident for it’s fun theming and the engineering used in it’s design, also I’m really a sucker for aliens and modern mysteries.
WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES A GREAT GAME MASTER?
I always try to put fun above anything else, making my groups laugh and smile is what I strive for above anything else. It try to make you feel comfortable in the room and stand in stride even when the puzzles might prove too challenging.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I’m an enthusiastic writer and storyteller, currently im working on a dark fantasy novel tentatively titled “The Drowned King’s Tragedy”. I also enjoy playing traditional tabletop games, such as Settlers of Catan, Dungeons and Dragons, and a game system I’m developing along with a group of friends. Beyond that, I enjoy a good movie, and try to keep my media diet expansive, with classic cinema and modern blockbusters.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE GAME AND WHY?
For a traditional game I’m a huge fan of Dungeons and Dragons and other tabletop role playing games, which I like to think is obvious at this point, but I also enjoy the Monster Hunter series of video games having sunk too many hundreds of hours into the, across the series.
FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
Oh you know it’s orange pineapple, its tangy and unique. Did you know we don’t have grape ice cream because Ben of Ben and Jerry’s killed Jerry’s sister’s dog? It’s true look it up.
