A strange title isn't it? Maybe it won't sound so strange when you get to know more.

I might as well start with my name: Peter-Olof. Friends online know me as Wotan, however.
Anyone with some knowledge of Norse mythology will know that Wotan is just one our of a dozen names for the Norse king of the gods, Odin as he's most commonly known as in English. Wotan is the common Germanic name. It's the nickname I chose, mostly based on my love for Norse mythology and because of my nationality -- you might have alrready guessed, I am German. I first learned this name when watching a performance of Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen on TV. A few of you might know that this opera was a source of inspiration for J.R.R. Tolkien when he wrote The Lord of the Rings.

I live in an appartment in Danderyd, which is a northern suburb to Stockholm - the capitol of Sweden. I haven't always lived like this, though. When I was a kid, my uncle owned a house in Stocksund (neighbouring to Danderyd) I was happy there, but when my uncle Göte died, my mom and I had to move. Mom still lives in the same apartment we moved to after his death (I had recently turned 18). I now live in my own appartment in the same building since many years, longer than I can remember.

For a living, I work as an engineer in a small, struggling company that build electronic devices on demand by client -- lego work, as we call it over here. I used to like my work when I was young. But nowadays, I just feel it's a necessity to stay alive, which feels more like a curse rather than a divine blessing. So yes, over the years, I've become an old and cynic man. I still try to keep up appearances with humor, but it doesn't always work that well. -- Thank God, that there are computer games and TV to help a desperate man like me escape from reality into a fantasy world worth living in.

Speaking of computer games. One of my favorites has always been Sid Meier's Pirates and Civilization games. Sid really got me interested in the history of pirates and ancient civilizations. Other games that I really liked are all the Elder scrolls games. I've played them all except for Redguard. Battlespire was, in fact, the first game I played online and it was where I made my first online friends. I made my first long time friend soon after, when Everquest was released. -- We were a small group lead by two young Germans, both named Christain Vault boy Smile The older one of them is still guild leader and my oldest buddy today.
After Everquest there was Shadowbane beta where I met lots of new friends. I never played in the launch, though. I've played some other MMOs too. I quit Asheron's Call very quckly after beginning when I was killed just because I lost connection in a settlement. I was teleported out of that settlement because there was a 5 minute limit on being in the same place -- that stupid thing got me killed and was the reason I quit playing.
I've also played Age of Conan for some time. I really loved the graphics and the adult game setting. However, the pvp sucked. the instanced gameplay took away the features that could have made a truly awesome game. If you're into pve, AoC might still be a game for you, but for me it became boring.

I mentioned TV. I watch it a lot -- too much really. I like to watch Discovery Channel and Animal Planet. I also like to watch good movies. My favorite movies are historic movies, fantasy setting movies or comedys. The best movie(s) of all time, if you ask me, is The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It's closely followed by the original Star Wars. I never liked the new Star Wars movies like I loved the old ones. I haven't even seen the last one of those movies.

I was lured over here by Lady M - site owner of the Hall of Torque - you know her better as Saturn Celeste.
I have known her 12-13 years now - can't recall exactly when it was she contacted me for the first time. It was shortly after I had first published my website (which is gone now due to the fatal crash of the server it was hosted on. I blame the stupidity of the host) I had published a fan-fic about my character in Morrowind. Linda invited me to join her webring. We've been good friends since.
