aka "Big Irish"  has been professionally involved in tabletop RPGs, computer games, and entertainment for over a quarter-century. His dozens of projects have included Hero Games' Champions product line; both West End's and Fantasy Flight's Star Wars RPGs; various World of Darkness books; and the Savage Worlds Epic High Fantasy setting, Shaintar.

He's working directly with Pinnacle Entertainment and Palladium Books to create an entire line of books to bring the classic Rifts setting to Savage Worlds fans, which he says is his most challenging design project ever.

Bill Keyes

Bill has been gaming for well over 30 years, starting with the original hardback AD&D books (which he still has, proudly showing them off to anyone foolish enough to ask) in 1980. He discovered the original Champions superhero RPG at the tender age of 11, and has been running various heroic adventures (alternating between D&D and HERO) ever since. People keep coming back to play, so he must be doing something right. A long-time resident of Colorado, he currently lives in Johnstown. Bill has worked as the layout designer and art director for Hero Games (Lucha Libre Hero, the Hero System Bestiary, Hero System Martial Arts Handbook, Hero System Equipment Guide, and others), Silverback Games (Champions: The LARP), High Rock Publishing (Kazei 5, Terracide, The Fires of Heaven, 3rd World, and others), and Make Big Things! (Threadbare). His first book, The Widening Gyre, is a world of steampunk and sorcery for Savage Worlds and the Hero System. A sequel to The Widening Gyre for Savage Worlds is due out in 2018. He is also working on a Retro-Scifi worldbook and a worldbook best described as “A cross between 7th Sea and Expedition to the Barrier Peaks,” both for Savage Worlds. Known as "The Bunny" (for reasons we are unable to explain), Bill claims to have been elected President in an rigged election, conquered the Midwest, been shot and killed at least once, sworn (and achieved!) vengeance on the gods themselves, crowned himself King of the World, become the arch-enemy of a llama, deposed the Pope, and had torrid love affairs with several well-known movie starlets. It is unlikely that any of these things are actually true, but it's best to just humor him when he gets like this.

Curt Covert

Curt Covert is the owner of Smirk & Dagger Games. For 14 years, Curt has promoted the idea that 'games are more fun when you can stab a friend in the back.' For many of those years, he was the company's sole game designer, whose work includes Cutthroat Caverns, Hex Hex, Run for your Life Candyman! and Nevermore. More recently, Smirk & Dagger's line up includes great games from other designers including Dead Last, BIOTIX and Paramedics:CLEAR! -- and in 2018 will launch a new sub-brand, Smirk & Laughter, which will deliver games with emotional impact, but none of the 'take that' mechanics he is known for. Curt is also the inventor behind Crayola's 3-D Outdoor Chalk line, which won Toy of the Year when it launched in 2005. A Connecticut resident, with 2 grown boys and his wife Laura, Curt had been a Creative Director for many top marketing firms before pursuing Smirk & Dagger full time.
