Serpent King Games is industry veterans Gareth Hanrahan, Jon Hodgson, and Ian Sturrock.

Gareth Hanrahan
Gareth is a freelance writer and game designer; he’s been writing full-time for roleplaying games ever since he escaped from his previous life as a computer programmer. Most of his work has been for Mongoose Publishing; he was a staff writer there for seven years, writing millions of words for d20. Babylon 5, Conan and other lines. He was the designer of the newest edition of the venerable Traveller roleplaying game, as well as the 25th anniversary edition of Paranoia.

Outside of Mongoose, he’s written for Hogshead Publishing, Green Ronin, Paizo, Pelgrane Press, AEG, FFG, WW, WotC and many other corporate acronyms. He’s a fixture of the Irish gaming scene, whatever that means.

His personal tastes in gaming tend towards things flavoured with Cthulhu, intricate adventures, and collaborative campaign design.

In addition to his work for Serpent King and freelance clients, his own gaming imprint is at www.milkyfish.com.

Jon Hodgson
Jon has been a full time freelance artist for the last ten years or so, and part time before that longer than he cares to think about. Working primarily in gaming of one sort or another, Jon has also done film and TV work, advertising and novel covers.
His credits within the world of pen and paper games include Dungeons and Dragons 3e and 4e, Pathfinder, WFRP 1e and 2e, Das Schwarze Auge, AFMBE, Buffy, Warhammer Historical, World of Warcraft CCG, Legend of the Five Rings CCG, and many more.
Jon’s work on the Magnum Opus Press edition of Dragon Warriors led to him being described by Dave Morris as “The Dragon Warriors artist” and to him being offered the chance to make artwork for the forthcoming Lord of the Rings roleplaying game, The One Ring, and from there to an art direction position with leading UK games publisher Cubicle 7.

Ian Sturrock
Ian has been playing tabletop roleplaying games for nearly thirty years, and designing them professionally for ten. He designed the award-winning Conan and Slaine RPGs for Mongoose Publishing, as well as working on lines such as Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, The Esoterrorists, and of course Dragon Warriors. He also teaches game design, lecturing on Glyndwr University’s Computer Game Development course and writing lectures for the University of Central Lancashire’s Games Design MA course.

Dragon Warriors has been his favourite fantasy RPG since 1985, though occasionally Amber Diceless comes close. In true polygeek manner, he’s also almost unbearably enthusiastic about boardgames, miniature wargames, and live roleplaying games.

About Dragon Warriors:
Dragon Warriors is a game from the heyday of pen and paper roleplaying games, the 1980s. Penned by Dave Morris and Oliver Johnson, it was originally published by Corgi Books. They used a paperback format, which gave the game the appearance of the incredibly popular Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, and indeed many bought into the game thinking that’s exactly the kind of thing it was… (read more)

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
