About Serpent

Hello, I'm Mikko "Serpent" Kallio from Helsinki, Finland. I'm a blogger, design contest judge, freelancer, and a former RPG Superstar finalist.

RPG Design Blogger

I'm the founder of A Sword for Hire. On my blog, I discuss RPG design, the RPG Superstar contest, and freelancing. I also interview designers and Pathfinder-compatible publishers.

RPG Superstar Judge, Here Be Monsters Judge

I was one of the judges for RPG Superstar 2015. It was a great honor to be on the judging panel, and I'm very pleased to say that we got an awesome Top 4 this year.

I'm also the main organizer and one of the judges on the Here Be Monsters design contest.

In 2014: Our judging panel consisted of RPG industry veteran Sean K Reynolds and RPG Superstar finalists Mike Kimmel, Jacob W Michaels and myself. Nicholas Wasko won the contest, and the runners-up were Mike Welham, Joe Kondrak, Wendall Roy, and Douglas Schaub.
