Bent brings years of experience to the team. He started playing in the Last Outpost (as Ubex) in the Fall of ’92, very shortly after it began. He spent almost a year there before going on to play at ArcticMUD where he built the zone called New Tarsis. He has periodically visited LO over the years but gave up life in the MUD in 1999 when his real life doctoral studies overwhelmed his gaming. He’s back in LO now and trying to convince some of his colleagues in the world of educational gaming to look at classics like Last Outpost as a way to teach reading and literacy skills for at-risk teens and tweens.
