Markku

Web designer, Graphic designer

At my day-job I’m messing about with projects in an ITC department.  But after the sun goes down I’m designing graphics for 4-Wizards and our other projects in the pipeline.  I lost my soul to gaming around 30 years ago after playing with the neighbours’ ZX Spectrum.

Mikko

Game Designer

I have been a gamer my whole life.  My game designing started at primary school when I created rules for battling with dinosaur miniatures.  I generally like to tinker with all the games I play, often making up my own variants.  These days I prefer shorter games that force players to make meaningful decisions.

GM, Game Designer

After taking part in the game Diplomacy at around age 10, there was no turning back.  I now have over 25 years experience of active and enthusiastic game-mastering and playing.  There will be a humongous legacy of game-world design waiting for my now one-year-old son.  I will just have to suffer in silence when he chooses to play with a football instead.  Working as a professional visual-designer in the theatre for over 20 years has kept my feet on the ground, and my mind at least temporarily out of the multiverse…

Partner, Toad

I have been an active player and game designer since the dark ages of the 1970′s. In gaming I value the presence of other players.  I also move papers around, mainly from one table to another.

Gamer designer

During the day I work as a sales manager in a software company.  If I’m not spending my evenings and weekends with friends playing games, I’m exercising at the gym and swimming pool, or planning game concepts, storylines and adventures.  I began running roleplaying games for my friends 25 years ago and I’m still at it.  Inventing new plots for my friends to play and enjoy has become a life-long hobby.

Illustrator & Graphic designer

Usually I do illustrations for advertisement agencies and magazines, although lately I have spent most of my time on our Realm of Wonder game.  With some small background in the computer game industry and concept art, I do my work in the basement of studio Super8.  My next project includes some concept art for 4-Wizards.  My interests include travelling (going on a journey… or just going) and good food with good company.
