Pedro Sena
Production Editor

Pedro has been an avid writer for some time and is one of the original members of our startup group, the "Centipede", our original BBS network, where most of the matters regarding our early editions were discussed. With the development of the Internet, Pedro created a newsgroup, to work as another intermediary, while also adding the same comradship and dedication to quality work that the Centipede used to share in all of its message bases. This newsgroup is alt.centipede. Since then, alt.ygdrasil has been added. The alt.ygdrasil newsgroup is also linked to the RIME Network, where the poetry is also shared with their users. Pedro still spends much of his time adding his insights to the publication and about twice a year adds a complete issue of the Ygdrasil to our library. He has written several screenplays, various plays, short stories, and is at present developing his second novel, along with his duties here with us.
