Lori Pecchia has been involved in tabletop gaming for almost 30 years as well as game development, play testing, sales, event organization, GMing, and playing. Her first experience playing D&D was with 2nd Ed. and lasted all through high school. College and a career put gaming on the back burner for a couple years but after attending her first Gen Con Gaming Convention in 1999 her interest for gaming was reignited.
At that time Lori discovered a true passion for GMing and has since run multiple game systems including: All Flesh Must Be Eaten, Dread, Fate, and Outbreak:Undead. After a few years of running events for other gaming groups, she started her own gaming group entitled, 37 Zombies. It has over 20 Game Masters and has hosted numerous gaming events for well over a thousand players. “Lori’s Midnight Game” is her most well-known event, a comedic hack and slash game of her own invention which caters up to 180 players per game.1
The last couple years have opened a new page in the gaming industry for many, and virtual games have been a new adventure for her. Her newest addition to gaming is the virtual version of her large-scale game called “Lori’s Critical Failures,” which she runs on the Praetor’s Rejects Twitch channel since the beginning of 2021 .In October 2020 she began playing in the Rise Up Against the Slave Lords campaign with Praetor’s Rejects, playing 5th Ed. D&D in the world of Greyhawk.
When she’s not gaming, you can find Lori tattooing at Faith Tattoo in Golden, CO. She has been a tattoo artist and body piercer for over 20 years. Her specialty lies in providing an amazing experience resulting in a beautifully executed tattoo. She lives in the mountains of Colorado with her husband Pete, daughter Cora, and Bear the dog. Being surrounded by a loving family and beautiful scenery is what truly makes her happy…that and rolling a natural 20.
