Brent is an elementary school teacher, artist, and a game enthusiast. As the co-founder of Akinji Entertainment, he has often been the driving force behind our game ideation and came up with the core concepts behind both of CATaclysm's mechanics and world. However when he isn't teaching, playing, or making games, he is grooming his epic beard.

Toma has contributed art for games such as Pathfinder, Conan the RPG, Hex Shards of Fate, and Magic the Gathering. He also painted a unicorn for Dungeons & Dragons, but you shouldn’t hold that against him.
