Dwarven Forge was founded in 1996 by artist Stefan Pokorny, a medieval fantasy devotee -- and an avid Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast. As a classically trained, professional painter and sculptor, Stefan decided to create "real" dungeon terrain that would equal his incredible 25mm tall hero figures. After many months of painstaking design, sculpting and painting, he introduced the world's finest pre-painted miniature terrain in 1996.

Inside Up Games
Inside Up Games began before it was ever named, when board game enthusiast Conor McGoey was struck with an original game idea while lying awake one night. Luckily the striking didn’t leave any permanent bruising, just the foundation for “Summit” which would become this company’s first game. Learn more at www.insideupgames.com and visit Conor’s booth to play a demo of Summit and see if you have what it takes to survive the climb!
