This author is evasive, and has not yet been identified.
Original speculation was that the author may be 'Haral', but other say that 'Haral' does better work, and is more interested in coding than level design.
NEW:I Asked Haral directly - he said it was not him.
Other say perhaps 'Thom' created a series before his return to WOT in late 2002.
One thing is sure; people like balefire, and these maps deliver. As with other authors, if this is you, or you know who this is, please contact me at the address below.
