Hello everybody!

 

I read tEotW about 8 years ago but was sad to find that the books were hard to come by here in my country (good ol' Costa Rica). 

 

A few weeks ago I found the whole series in audiobook format and Im very happy to dive in again! 

 

The drive home has become an awesome adventure. Finding myself wishing for more traffic. Thats how much Im enjoying these books.  :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:

Welcome to Dragonmount! Like Shad said there are tons of things to do around here. There is the Social Group side and the Role Playing Side. I'm Cairos by the way. Come visit the Band of the Red Hand, SG, the Black Tower, and the White Tower. Have fun and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Welcome to DM, and welcome back to the books, Gleeman,

 

Since you have yet to finish the series you might tread carefully around the threads on our Discussion Boards, that is where people can start and/or join in on discussions about the series and characters from it but for those who are still working on it the threads are also probably going to contain spoilers... especially the earlier parts in the series as it sounds you are currently at.

 

As Shad & Cairos pointed out, in addition to those boards you might enjoy checking out our many Social Groups which can be a great way for you to meet and get to know some of the people around the site. You may join as many groups as you'd like and each one has their own draw. All of the groups have some great members, many of us are members of multiple groups, and each group has some fun activities to participate in. If any of the groups appeal to you then feel free to apply to join them. If you have any questions about The Band of the Red Hand, home of music, travel, drinks & food, I should be able to answer them (I'm the Band's Exececutive Officer). If you have any questions about The Black Tower, home of Spam and Madness, I should also be able to answer those (I'm Logain, leader of the Light Faction). Other than those two groups I can't really answer many of your questions but if you post here or in their general board I'm sure one of their members will be more than happy to help answer your questions about their group. From my experiance, many of the groups seem to have a little bit of RP mixed in however do not mainly focus on it.

 

If you are looking for some in depth RP we also have the RP-Groups which, though I have little to no knowledge of, is something many find fun to participate in. If you plan on participating I believe they have a main board you can post any questions to if no one here is able answer them.

 

I hope you have a great time on the site and maybe we'll see you around the boards.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! 

 

Nikon, I´ll definitely be careful about spoilers. My main reason to join in is to ask questions about characters and events during my reading. RP isn't really my cup of tea. 

 

Shad, yes, CR is a nice place to live. Great weather here almost all year through :D. Though I´ve never seen snow in my life. Would like to. 

 

What is there to do on the social groups, that you would recommend to a newcomer? 

 

Thanks again!

Welcome to DM. I spend most of my time in the White Tower and Warders. You can join as many social groups as you wish. There are sticky's at the top of each group that explains what they're about. A heads up on that you will not be able to see all of the boards or activities going on in the groups until you choose to become a member. There can be lots going on behind the scenes, so to speak.

 

For example, in the White Tower and Warders, you will not be able to see the Ajah Halls unless you join. I belong to several groups and enjoy them all,

 

If you have any further questions, please ask. I think the warnings about spoilers has already been covered. :)

Lovely to see someone from yet another part of the world joining here! It's really wonderful to make new friends from all over :)

 

The Red Ajah here is quite known for its members being from all over the world, but also for being the Ajah to which the only 2 South African Aes Sedai belong! (One of them being myself, and though technically I'm now from all Ajahs, being the Amyrlin, I was still raised from the Red so it counts! hehehehe)

 

I hope we see you around the White Tower & Warders, even if you only come visit :)

Hi Chaelca, I like a bit of everything, but Im a rock guy to the core.

 

How would being a gleeman work?

 

Interestingly enough, Im in the music business in real life. So, I could see myself as a Gleeman

Mostly I don't work, I make people like Chaelca and Cairos work *grins*

 

And the name's Elgee, btw ... lol ... one of our Admins thought it would be funny to insert "DM's cuddly Elaida" into my name, since I was raised to Amyrlin from the Red. *grins*

Jeje Elgee it is then. I didnt know how to address you without sounding improper... cuddly, elaida... so I took my pick  :o* :D

 

Besides, I noticed your 34000+ posts and thought I wouldnt want to bother one of the elite ppl in here.

Thanks ryrin.

I was wondering where to read about characters without finding spoilers? Wikis are no good, apparently. I wanted to learn about ingtar's background or motivations and found by mistake that he is a darkfriend B((((

 

I think that might be a hard task.  Perhaps, after you finish the books you could purchase the Wheel of Time Companion.

OK Elgee sure will!

 

I'm a music producer. Tell me, is it possible to change my username? I'm on my cellphone and can't find where to do it.

Sooh is quite correct. My advice would be to send a PM (private message) to either Verbal32 or Barmacral - they're the admins who fiddle with that type of thing.

 

I have no idea how to do this from your cell phone (can someone else help him?) but on a computer you would look at the top right hand side of your screen till you find your name. There are two "tabs" to the left of that - "messenger" and "notifications". If you click on "messenger" that system will open up. You then click on "compose new" sort of in the middle right hand side of your screen, and follow the instructions.

 

The other way is to go to someone's profile, and click on "send me a message". Much easier, but you need to find that profile first! lol ... here's Verbal's, to make it easier for you:
