Known as a "trigger-master" and "Tarken the robot" as mortal, Tarken was practically forced to wizardhood to pay for his sins as a cheater. But as they say, good cheaters make the best wizards...
Tarken immorted in Jan 2009, and decided to use his robotting powers for good of all mudkind ever since, focusing also on such things as bugfixes, but has taken up maintenance of ship code after Melemkor's retirement. He is also responsible for spells/skills effects system and works on merchants guild, as is appropriate for someone interested in that craft.
