At an age when he should have been out buying wheels, Stephan Wieck was cutting deals. At 16 he started a fantasy role-playing magazine with his older brother and two friends.

When the two friends bowed out, they gave up their equity stakes, as Wieck did when he went to college. But Wieck later returned, and he now serves as CEO.
