What Is ‘Kartanym’?
The name Kartanym (pronounced KAR-TAN-M) actually came from another idea I had many years ago, probably around 2001. I was working on a Role Playing Game of my own, based within a sci-fi universe, trying all these different combinations of names and letters to create worlds, people and places.
At the time I was playing a video game called Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura. Though I wasn’t very good at it, the name of the game influenced one of my ideas. Also, and this is kinda obvious, I was a big Mario Kart 64 player back in the day, so that (combined with Arcanum) became ‘Kartanym’.
So it was originally created as a planet name for a sci-fi RPG, but it’s since became the main nickname, of sorts, for almost everything I sign up for. Including, of course, this production company! So there you go, that’s where the name came from.
