About Us

The Network provides two services to the New York underworld. First, it lets them live. Second, the Network does them favors in exchange for cash and allegiance. They are specialists in the impossible. (Delta Green)

Creative Director: Dennis Detwiller

Dennis Detwiller is an award-winning writer and artist whose work has appeared in a number of prominent publications over the past ten years. He has been the art director for Pagan Publishing since its beginnings in 1991, and in 1994 he co-created Pagan Publishing’s acclaimed Delta Green with John Tynes and Adam Scott Glancy. He received the prestigious Origins Award for Best Game Supplement of 1996 for Delta Green, and again for 1999’s Delta Green: Countdown. He also won Origins Awards for Magic: The Gathering — Homelands (Best Card Game Supplement, 1997) and The Hills Rise Wild (Best Board Game, 2000).

In 2001 he released the original role-playing game Godlike: Superhero Roleplaying in a World on Fire, 1936-1946. With its remarkable depth of history and characterization, and innovative game mechanics by Greg Stolze, Godlike immediately captured industry and fan attention and critical acclaim. A sequel of sorts, the RPG Wild Talents, appeared in late 2006; an expanded second edition was published in 2008.

Dennis’s work has also appeared in various Call of Cthulhusupplements, Call of Cthulhu d20, Magic: The Gathering, Polyhedron, The Unspeakable Oath, Hogshead Games: New Style Line, Castle Falkenstein, Fangoria, Shadowfist, Mythos and elsewhere.

As a videogame designer, Dennis has helped conceive, script and develop Sierra Entertainment’s [Prototype], along with other titles for Radical Entertainment, Nickelodeon, Warner Brothers Games, and Harebrained Schemes.
