The following people work hard to bring you PlanetBaldursGate (and Baldur's Gate Chronicles before it).

Joost 'Silverdawn' Loijens
    RPG/Adventure Genre Producer

Formerly a biomedical researcher, Silverdawn is now the RPG/Adventure Genre Producer at GameSpy. By running Baldur's Gate Chronicles and PlanetNeverwinter (dedicated to BioWare's Neverwinter Nights) for over two years, he honed his Web design and Webmastering skills. Meticulously having advanced his gnome cleric/thief through Baldur's Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast in only five months, he is ready to spend the next year getting through Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate II. Other interests include photography and volleyball.
John 'MageDragon' Rawalt
    Site Director, News Director and Content Developer

MageDragon does the news religiously and enjoys killing every being in the Baldur's Gate series and Icewind Dale series multiple times (just to make sure). Having played D&D; and AD&D; for many years on pen and paper he switched over to his first CRPG with Pools of Radiance for the Commodore 64. MageDragon is obsessed with dragons and thinks every CRPG should have one. He is a manager for a computer store on the beautiful MS Gulf Coast. When not sitting in front of his computer kicking butt for goodness, he enjoys spending time with his family and preparing gourmet meals.
Peter 'Stonecourier' Messenger
    Database Developer

Stonecourier is a new recruit at BGC, developing his skills with web design and on-line databases. Late at night, he finds nothing better than kicking some monster butt. He lives in Australia, and works as an engineer/programmer in an integrated steelworks. When he has the time and energy, he enjoys rockclimbing, canyoning and cooking.
Toby 'Leviticus' Herman
    Co-Founder

A co-founder of Baldur's Gate Chronicles, Leviticus has retired from the day-to-day operation of the site. As the webmaster, he had spent endless hours tweaking the site design, editing news, and shouting orders to the rest of the BGC team. While he may sometimes have seemed obsessed with his work at BGC, he also worked full time, and did some professional web design on the side. He hails from Daytona Beach, Florida.
Mike 'Zarth' Giest
    Co-Founder

Another co-founder of BGC, Zarth heard about Baldur's Gate and did everything in his power to get his Diablo Guild friends interested. After seeing the wonderful job Leviticus did with Dark Reign Chronicles and the original Guild pages, Zarth annoyed the hell out of him about setting up a Baldur's Gate fan site until he cracked. Zarth constantly searched for news and information about Baldur's Gate, while teaching himself programming and animation in his spare time. It payed off; he is now a designer at BioWare working on the Baldur's Gate series.
