Hello everyone! Yet another new guy here!
New guy to the forums, and relatively new to The Wheel of Time as well! I was introduced to the series by a friend about 12 years ago. My first attempt at reading them failed. The thought of such a long book series, back then, boggled my mind far too much. But now that I am older, and the series is over, I am giving them a shot once more! I am 4 books in and I have to admit, sometimes it can be a pretty hard read. The characters constantly bickering with each other tends to annoy me greatly, but other than that such an epic story is really a pleasure to read! My favorite character has to be al'Lan Mandragoran!
Right around the time I was discovering The Wheel of Time, another great passion of mine was introduced to me: Table Top RPGS. In fact the very first Dungeons and Dragons game I every played in was heavily influenced by the Wheel of Time! Since then I have been either playing in or running games every weekend for several years! I used to play a lot of video games as well, but in recent years I have cut back heavily. I just don't get the same satisfaction from them as I do from table top games.
All in all, I am your general fantasy/table top game/history nerd. And I am damn proud of it!
I am looking forward to getting to know you all better in the future!
