Ryan, who has went by the in game names of Karadzic and R509, is a Channer with a history of playing on Civ servers ever since the recruitment drive of Viridian and Intis in August/September 2014. He mostly was on Hiatus for civ 3.0, having given up on it based on its unplayable status on day one and not returning on having heard it was shit, but returned to civ servers at the beginning of devoted, and would even lead the Byzanchan Empire there. He's mostly lightly played civclassics, making a few attempts at getting his toes wet in the water there, but being deterred at first by the lack of a stable chan nation. He joined when Konigsberg was attempting to establish itself, but upon hearing of it's gassing continued to wait. With the relative stability and success of the Chanseatic State, he has since joined them and now plans to get a bit more active and establish a new settlement.
Karadzic was part of the IDF, a group consisting of Prioma, Nes2, ChrisChrispie, and IrishCeasar that would eventually form Chanos in Civcraft 2.0. Prioma and ChrisChrispie would go on to become major figures in the Republic of Icenia on Civclassic.
