Jupiter Sacadura loves his family, and it consumes his time with 7 kids under the 13-year-old threshold. He lives in central New York. He has been playing CCGs for the past 30 plus years and loves to focus on two things: the competition, and the community. When Keyforge was released he started off into the world of social media and was one of the first content producers for Keyforge. Currently, his focuses are on his master’s degree in New Media Journalism and preparing for the World Championships.
Recently he has started his own team that is going to focus on the international community and looks forward to bringing his progress and insights from that to the Archons Corner. Jupiter is always available to people who want to talk Keyforge day and night. Jupiter believes in connecting the right people to the right decks, and the right people to the people who have the knowledge in the things they need. BEWARE he is an addicted hugger, but rumor has it he gives the best hugs!
Van (pronounced Von) hails from the great state of Texas and has primarily been a PC/console gamer ever since she received an NES on her 5th birthday. Favorite games have included various MUDs, Myst, KotOR, WoW (Stormreaver <Original Gangstaz>), Final Fantasy, and Skyrim. KeyForge is Van’s first CCG and it all began with a Christmas gift from Big Z. Since then, she has been to four vaults and the NOVA Grand Championship.
In the summer, Van loves going to SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con) and will continue to visit/pester FFG’s booth in hopes that they will promote KeyForge alongside Star Wars. If you get a chance to play against her, use a deck with a mechanic that you cannot get to fire. Her curse will make it work in your favor. If you see her at an event, feel free to approach but with caution – sometimes she spooks easily.
