Viking Village was perhaps the mod that made me realize that I loved modding. Making my own island, shaping it as I went - it was thrilling, albeit a lot of work for a young fellow.
After having been one of the followers, and beta testers of Kvatch Rebuilt since its inception back in 2006, Ionis gave me the reins for the project - version 2.0, which he had been working on for some time, needed more work, but he was heading for university. So, with my limited knowledge, I took on the project, and it has shaped who I am, and it still does. 2015, and I am still working on the mod.
After having modded for many years, I thought the time had come to start working on my dream - becoming a professional Level Designer. I joined up with Triad Game Studios, working on their MMORPG "Dark Relic".
After about a year at Triad, I decided that working on an MMO was not what I wanted. So, I teamed up with a bunch of people that I already knew very well; DarkRider, Arthmoor, InsanitySorrow, the list goes on. As a Level Designer at Druid, I was finally doing what I was dreaming about.
Echoes was too big for a small studio such as ours, so we switched over to a smaller project set in the same universe. 2015 will be a year I will always remember!
