This site is brought to you by the hard work of the following people:

Joe 'Acolyte' Silvagni (formerly TheAcolyte)
    Site Director

From late 1997 to early 2000 The Acolyte and his small staff managed and developed The Labyrinth, a premier Diablo II fan site. Since 1996 he has been an avid fan of the Diablo series, as well as other games by Blizzard Entertainment, Bioware, Id Software, Valve Software, Crytek, and many other developers. Near the release of Diablo II, he joined the GameSpy Network as our Content Director, and soon became Site Director. He sees a bright future for the Diablo series community, especially now that Diablo III is in the works. His taste in music is broad and song-by-song, but his favourite artists are the Nine Inch Nails, Alanis Morrisette, Björk, Portishead, and Peter Rauhofer. His sustinence now revolves around the fishing economy of the island in Japan where he lives currently.


Phil 'thecowking' Cook
    News Reporter

Hailing from the "mitten" state of Michigan, thecowking has been scouring the depths of a mitten-prohibited hell since 1999 when he was first introduced to Diablo. His long ties with Blizzard games fueled the inspiration for his own Diablo III fan site and has now come to Planet Diablo to see the community grow and provide up-to-date news with all things Diablo. Music, video games, and journalism are his passions. He was raised on the likes of The Beatles, The Who, and The Rolling Stones, but has broadened his tastes over the years to Avenged Sevenfold, Killswitch Engage, System of a Down, and Incubus. Surprisingly, his wife Alexandra is supportive of his Diablo addiction (as long as he helps with housework). Favorite food: anything his wife is willing to cook.
