DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

New to Dragonmount?

Recommended Posts

Hello!! I have spent the last 11 months in Afghanistan as a Combat Engineer for the U.S. Army and borrowed Book 1 from a friend in my platoon who insisted I give it a go. I am glad I did as the series gave me something to look forward to and a place to escape the busy lifestyle of war. I am looking forward to meeting like minded people and to discuss the WoT series. Thank you for this opportunity.

Have been scared to look at anything on the internet in case I read anything that give the story away so have finally finished all the books thus far and am madly scanning the internet now.

 

Any recommendations ? I guess I 'll have a look around here first

Welcome to the forum Allan. I did postal work in Kandahar for 12 months. got back last year. I also started book 1 and finished it after i came home. I'm now on book 6 and still loving it! Thank you for your service to our country. Any random thoughts on the story so far? (gripes, exciting moments where you yell something and everyone looks at you like you're crazy cuz you're getting so excited over a novel, or tear-wrenching moments)

Hey everyone! New to the site, but certainly NOT new to the series. Started reading back in 6th grade, roughly 11 years old, and when AMOL is released, I'll be 29 when I finish it. It's been such an amazing ride, reading through the series once a year sine then, whether a new book is released or not. Happy to join the community too!

Thanks very much for the kind welcome! I've been absolutely loving the questions and threads so far! I haven't gotten into any social groups yet, but definitely considered the Black Tower as my first choice. While new to this forum, I'm not new to forums in general, nor the series (been reading and re-reading them for roughly 17 of my current 28 years alive), so I'm just like a kid in a candy store :)

 

Favorite character, isn't that always the million dollar question? :) Hm. I'd have to answer that like this: Favorite Main Character, Favorite Secondary Character, and Favorite Villian -

Main: Rand. RJ did a perfect job of creating a central character that I truly love and care about. Mat's a close second, but after reading the VoG passage and his exploits in ToM, Rand is just the ultimate.

Secondary: Thom. There's a passage I absolutely love that cracks me up every time I read it, but I sadly don't have my books at the moment, so I'll have to quote that later.

Villian: Ishamael/Moridin is a solid choice, with his archetypal dark/brooding nature mixed with philosophy and orchestration of events. Though I also love Ingtar's deception/betrayal, then final redemption in tGH.

Hi! I'm new to the forum, and only a recent convert to WoT, being only currently at book 8. I decided to join now, because my friend (The Bard Babe) wouldn't stop bugging me to join it. I'm totally absorbed in the series, and looking forward to the many twists and turns that lie ahead in wait for me. Hoping to become an active member on the RP and Social Groups. My current book favourites are the Ogier in general as well as the Aiel sense of humour.

Welcome Starrik! Relatively new to DM myself, but this site and it's members have already become quite addicting! Nice callout for the Aiel sense of humor, it's details like giving a removed society nuances like different humor and customs that really give this series it's depth, in my opinion. Many authors could do a decent job of creating visuals the reader could imagine, come up with different dialects and political/romantic intrigue, but things like Aiel humor, Ebou Dar's marriage knives and so on that really take you out of this world and into Randland :)

 

Anyways, welcome, and hopefully you love it here!

Thanks mate, yeah the immersive depth really makes this series shine. Many others gain depth through expanded fiction, fanfiction and so on and so forth, but WoT really just hands everything to you on a plate! Looking forward to diving into this site.

Ah, dicetosser. I've heard plenty about you and your southerly ways! I may head over to the Band at some point-however much it pains my male ego to say it, BB is rather, uhhh louder and more rough and tumble than I am! At this rate, I might just end up in all of the orgs...

Hello everyone, I just joined here but I have been here as a guest for few weeks and this seems a very interesting place. I'm from Fin(n)land and started the series last year, now I have read them all, also TGS and TOM in English because they aren't published in Finnish. WoT are the best books I have ever read, and I love them and wait eagerly for January! Because I'm Finnish and quite young, my English may not be always correct, but it doesn't seem to matter.
