About

Hacktoria is an ancient organization that has stood the test of time, taking many names and shapes over the years. Both to stay undetected and to change with the times. Originating from well before Christ, her origins are unknown to anyone except her members and clientele. In the earlier days, the then named Tiberian Order, would influence heads of state, or take on clandestine espionage work for wealthy people.

Guided by the moral principle to not support evil, Hacktoria has always had her reputation as “arm of the righteous”. Never allowing the evil in this world to use her powers, she always picked her Contracts with justice in mind. At all times, the “Overseer” is in charge of Hacktoria and decides what Contracts are taken and which are denied.

As the ages progressed and humankind was introduced to more advanced technologies, the organisation grew with the times. From the early days of pigeon messengers, to radios and later the internet, she has always expanded to include the most skilled members in their crafts. Only the best are hand selected by the “seekers”.

During the current modern age of globalization, web3 and misinformation. Hacktoria finds herself more powerful than ever. No longer bound by location to the prying eyes of any local government. She operates in the shadows, both online and offline. Obscuring the presence of her members with a sense of grace and urgency.

And so, here you are. Special Agent K. As if you came back from the dead, ready to continue your services for Hacktoria.

Special Agent K, the contract is yours, if you choose to accept.

Klumgongyn

Our Alien Counsel leader was introduced to Hacktoria during one of our monthly Capture the Flag events. Operation Galaxios has the player rescue Klumgongyn from the hands of international criminals. The players liked the character so much, they even named him “Special K” by the end of the event.

With the continuation of Hacktoria, Klumgongyn was re-introduced as a permanent member of the Hacktoria organization. Complete with his own Twitter account, his own language and Discord server role.

If you haven’t yet learned the language of Klumgon, we highly recommend you finish the contract “Klumgongyn Returns“. This will lead to both a Contract Card, as well as a font-file to write in Klumgon using the TTF or OTF files.

Klumgongyn was the brainchild of the group of CTF creators we had during those days. His name originally designed to be gender neutral, though our players made Klumgongyn into a male.

From Klumgongyn himself, you can expect a lot of sarcastic dry humor. Criticizing the actions of planet earth and its hairless apes who make up the dominant species of this planet.
