Artix von Krieger is a friendly pun-slinging, undead-slaying Paladin who has appeared in many games including AdventureQuest, DragonFable, MechQuest, AdventureQuest Worlds and… *gulps*… much to his discomfort Pony vs Pony. He is often seen with his faithful undead hunting pomeranian, Daimyo. Artix also appears in the AQWorlds Card Game, the animated short Artix vs the Undead, and many super ultra cheesy YouTube videos. While he is a good guy to his very core, it was revealed in AQWorlds in 2011 that he was actually the Champion of Darkness who was sent to destroy the world. His decision to protect the world against the very forces of evil that created him defines his character.
Artix’s real life counter part, Adam Bohn, also wears full plate armor and spends the majority of his day making silly puns. Adam is the Founder/CEO of Artix Entertainment, which makes weekly updated web games including the popular AdventureQuest Worlds, AdventureQuest, DragonFable, MechQuest, EpicDuel, and their first mobile game, Battle Gems. He tends to bring a sizable posse with him, and they put on one of our best attended family friendly panels every year.
