  1. Welcome to DM!! :) I know how you feel.. I had to pick my jaw up more than once as I read it over and over. I was shocked to say the very least. You've come to a good place though. DM is full of great and wonderful people.. I came here for book discussions and found so many more reasons to stay!!! I hope you have fun here wherever you find yourself posting. If you need to ask questions for anything don't hesitate.. any of us will help where we can. Speaking of book discussions.. be careful if you've not read all of the books yet. Spoilers are numerous there.. I found that out the hard way, as I still have yet to read KoD. :P and is everyone else reading CoS too? I'm re-reading and it seems like I'm not anywhere near alone in that book! lol
  2. Welcome to DM! Hope you can find your way around soon.. it really doesn't take long to get used to. It looks like Rae has you all lined out at the moment. If you have any other questions though, just ask.. anyone will help however they can.
  3. Welcome to DM!! umm.. officially anyway.. it took you long enough, yes? I'm just teasing, of course. ;) Hope you have a great time here!! and I'm glad you stopped lurking too.. how else can you join in the fun?
  4. That's how I got my copy.. though I was told I could keep it. :P
  5. Welcome to DM!!! I'm sure you'll like it here too. There's a lot to do and great people to hang out and post with. So just look around at everything and find where ever you feel comfortable.. and jump right in.
  6. Yep, we are!! Welcome! I lurked for almost two years on and off before I joined also.. I kept wanting to add something to a topic, but just never joined. I was very happy I finally did. DM is a good place no matter what you do while you're here. The book discussions are great, but I tend to stay on the org side of things. Anyway, I hope you hav fun where ever you like to be here. Again, welcome.. we're glad you joined at last!! :)
  7. I don't think it'd be hard.. I think it'd be fun. I'm in the middle of book 7 on a re-read now.. if I started again, I might go insane though.. I've been taking my sweet time and am working towards KoD (no, I still haven't read it) I'll join in a discussion though, I remember this one quite well, though the little details are becoming a bit hazy maybe.
  8. I have a few I liked, though it seems not too many people here have read them.. at least only a few that I know of have. I really liked "The Symphony of Ages" by Elizabeth Haydon.. there are 6 books in the series currently. I have yet to read the last one though. It's a good story with a lot of detail. It's based on a lot of Norce mythology and another that I can't remember right now. I loved the characters. I will say that I really didn't like the first book until I got past the first hundred or so pages, but after that I read all the following books quite quickly. I also liked "The Runelords" by David Farland.. there are 5 out now.. again, I have yet to read the latest. These, I believe are the first books he has written.. they're good, but in my opinion, he leaves out a little detail and rushes things, but then I'm also more used to RJ's way of writing. The idea behind the story is pretty cool, and the characters are relatable. I also read that it's being made into a movie. I have a few other series that I'm planning to read, but haven't had the chance yet. I just bought the first book in "The Saga of Recluce" series by L.E. Modesitt Jr.. it sounds good, but as I haven't read it I can't really give any kind of review of it. I plan to read "The song of fire and Ice" too, but again haven't yet. I hope if you read any of these that you don't think to come hunt me down.. they're just a few that I enjoyed. Good luck, and I'm sure you'll have many more people recommend more to you. :)
  9. Greetings from the midwest also. lol.. Welcome to DM!! Hope you have fun here! There's a lot to do, so you should find something you like. If you go to the book discusion.. be careful! I have yet to read KoD also, I started my re-read late and got sidetracked as well.. I'm getting closer to it though!! Anyway, I had a spoiler or two in the book discusion, so just watch out. On a side note. I've been wanting to read "The Saga of Recluse" for a coupel years now.. I finally got the book a few days ago, as it's never at the book store and I didn't want to bother ordering it. It sounded good, but I wasn't sure.. and you're the first person I can remember hearing mention it.. as you also love the WoT, I'm sure now that I'll like it. and D&D? lol.. I haven't played that for a few years now.. Anyway.. welcome again!
  10. Welcome to DM! The circumstances are sad, but in that same way.. it's a great time to come here. We're all feeling the same and it's so nice to have other people to talk to. Hope you have fun here. There's lots to do, from Orgs to RP.. there's really something for everyone. So just jump in somewhere and have a good time! :)

It's too bad you found us for that reason, but at least you finally did. :D There's lots to do here, all kinds of orgs to join or RP, if you're into that.

  15. Welcome to DM!!! Hope you stick around and join in the fun. I think we are all still a little out of sorts from this.. I know I'm finding it hard to get past. Sorry to hear about your friend.. I can imagine having that bond cut makes this even harder for you in a way. You can find a home here though, we're a very supportive bunch of people.. trust me, I've put that to the test.
