From the company's website:
Silver Gryphon Games is the creative exploration of Ben Overmyer and Kevin Rohan. These two company founders have a total of nearly 30 years of gaming experience with an amazing array of systems, styles, and rules. With experiences ranging from war gaming to diceless systems to traditional board games and CCGs, Ben and Kevin possess incredible background and familiarity with the industry.
Ben and Kevin met in Brookings, South Dakota. Ben found a copy of Kevin’s RPG Aether in the local game shop. Discovering that the creator lived in Brookings, Ben contacted him. From that point the two gamed together and became friends. Eventually, the idea of founding a new game company centered around both of their endeavors came into being.
Silver Gryphon Games was born.
The collective effort of the founders allows each of them to focus on their areas of expertise. Operating on the principle that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, Ben and Kevin use their strengths in tandem and compensate for each other’s weaknesses. The result is better products, a more varied product line, and stronger graphics and content.
Ben Overmyer assumed the role of Art Director, while Kevin Rohan fills the role of Content Director. Ben has a strong talent for the graphic arts, while Kevin has an equally strong talent for the written word. While the two form the backbone of Silver Gryphon Games, they are constantly on the lookout for new talent that can give fresh life to the gaming industry or experienced hands to leave their familiar touch upon Silver Gryphon Games’ products.
