Maxwell A. Rathbone aka Shouden

This website is my isle of information and outlet for creativity.

Where does Shouden come from?

Shouden is a variation of Shoden, which is the Japanese name for the Indian elephant god of wisdom, Ganesha. I first used this moniker early in my childhood for the first MMO, Ultima Online. At the time, I was the Guildmaster of the largest guilds on the Chesapeake server, Dark Warriors of Britannia.
