This is my little niche of the internet. I have been involved professionally with computers since the early 90’s, and as a hobby for about a decade longer. I am an avid gamer; role-playing, wargames, and computer games. I also write role-playing games and wargames.
The name “Shadow Network” originated in a play-by-mail gladiatorial game I played back in the 90s. I had a number of warriors and their guilds were headed by a group of five shadowy leaders known as the Pentarch (hence the domain name). When I first got a domain, pentarch.org seemed to be the way to go. I’ve stuck with it since.
