Who is Kingyak?

I'm the co-creator of QAGS and one of the founders of Hex Games, where I currently serve as Operations Director. I'm also the Managing Editor of Hex's online gaming mag,The Death Cookie. My non-Hex-related gaming industry experience includes working for Greenfield Hobby Distrubutors and as the assistant manager of a comic and game store called Red Rock Collectibles.

In addition to the O.G.R.E.S., I am a member of the Game Publishers' Association.

What's your favorite system?

QAGS, but I'm pretty biased. My favorite game system that I didn't help create is probably Atlas Games' Over The Edge system.

What is your favorite class?

In D&D, I usually played a Thief or Bard. For other games, my favorite types of characters are private detectives, criminal types, and occult-themed characters. And talking gorillas. You can't go wrong with talking gorillas.

In real life[]

I'm the Tool Crib Manager and I.T. guy for Infiniti Plastic Technologies, a company that makes DVD cases. I also do some freelance writing and web design. You can find out more than you probably want to know about me at my website, www.kingyak.com.

Why "Kingyak"?

I used the names "Hudson Hawk" and "Mr. Spooky" for a long time. One day I tried to sign up for some site and both of those were already taken, so I used "Kingyak," which was the name of a recurring kobold NPC in a fantasy game I ran for several years. I started using the name after that because I've never found a site where it's already in use.
