Absolute Tabletop was formed in the summer of 2015 by four passionate nerds on a lofty yet worthwhile quest: provide all-purpose homebrew content, rousing inspiration, and practical techniques for game masters and players alike.


The founders of Absolute Tabletop met (fittingly) at the gaming table – but not in the classical sense. Distributed across the United States, Matt, Barker, Tim, and James all met through online tabletop gaming. They quickly found that they had quite a bit in common, yet each still brought a unique viewpoint and voice to the table. It didn’t take long for them to start to formally collaborate, and from there, Absolute Tabletop was born.
