Who is Akimotos?
Well. that would be me, true. Born in Amsterdam in 1966.
In the 70s since i learned how to hold a pencil i doodle scribbled maps, locations and people. The spaceships i designed impressed some people and someone finally decided to steal my notebook. (why...?)
The 80s came and i went as professional into military service and it (the doodling) all faded into the background. Although i kept a lively fantasy and told storys i made up as if i was there it wasn't enough for me. I started with dungeons and dragons 2nd edition in 1985. I bought my dungeon master book at Harrods and still have it.
During the roaring 90s i did several game sessions with some friends and made a everlasting impression it seems, as they still talk about it whenever the subject comes up. I also played Meridian 59 and paid lots in online fees to play (AOL.. expensive). I didn't like it in the end and i moved on writing short stories for a bulletin board.
Finally the Year 2K arrived. And with it came some years of work and my first marriage, my first divorce and in 2003 again a marriage. I'm still with her and happy about it. So... lots of me doing a really good impression of being alive. As i picked up photography. As we all know... live happened and i worked. I started my own business, Digital Funwork, Which was a lot of the work, not much digital and only rarely fun. (administrative work sucks).
So... back to where i was... the new millennia started for me when i married my current wife in 2003. Life settled down and i actually found time to get back on track with adventures. Online gaming started to become more and more normal.
around 2008 or was it 9 ? i started playing a few years of PbP starting with a really nice DM (Frostchilde) in the PbPhouse. (website is gone..) I participated in a several year long campaign running (play-by-post) like "Dark is the Moon". A great adventure. Several characters where ceated and i still have fond memories of them. like Finwick Boddynock... the gnome. or Anostiro, Belk and Snar. The ones that i made are here as characters.
And now! 2020! Time for something new!
I think it is time for me to create something new and the flame burns. World Anvil is new to me, but looks very promising. I have some other locations, but this one looks better. Kudos to the developer(s).
What do i normally use to create my things you might ask?
Campaign Cartographer (CC3)
Dundjinni (might be no longer selling the product)
NBos Astrosynthesis. Since i prefer fantasy over sci fi for RPG... it rarely happens.
HeroLab classic yes. i suck at the number crunching and rule details. And maybe the herolab isn't 100% foolproof, it still is more reliable then me.
Realm Works that i helped kickstart.
Game Master & World Builder @ World Anvil
