Álvaro is an actor with a long resume of experience, but has most recently appeared in La Casa de Papel, Durante la Tormenta El Embarcadero and The Head. He also served as Theater Director for his own company, 300 Pistolas, which was founded in 2012 and brings Spanish classics, such as El Perro del Hortelano, Tres Sombreros de Copa, La Casa de Bernarda Alba and El Lazarillo de Tormes to high school students in the region. His work on El Lazarillo de Tormes was awarded at the Almagro International Classical Theater Festival in 2018.

  3. Over the years, Dragonmount has provided various chapter summaries and recaps of each book in The Wheel of Time. Now, for the first time, we've expanded that and published short book summaries, and complete chapter recaps for all 15 books in the series (main series + New Spring). Take a look for yourself. Head over to Dragonmount.com/Books and begin browsing. The book summaries are a good way to recall what happened in each book, especially if you've not read it in a long time. And the chapter recaps provide a bit more detail and depth. Creating this content has been a multi-month project by a fantastic group of volunteer fans. Each writer and editor is credited on the individual pages. They are: Joan Albright, Rajiv Mote, Erick Walter, Jim Vogel, and Angela Carter. Also, special thanks to Matalina (aka Alicia Wilkerson), a long-time contributor to Dragonmount, for creating a handy script to help automate the conversion of the original Google Documents into these web pages.
  4. Today, October 17, would have been Robert Jordan's 71st birthday. There've been a number of tributes to him on social media, but Amazon Prime's official WoT on Prime account is requesting fans to submit messages and video clips describing what the series means to you. So please leave a message on WoT on Prime's Twitter or Instagram feeds, or you can reply to any of Dragonmount's social media accounts with your message. Bu use to use #WoTonPrime and #Dragonmount in your messages. Happy birthday, Robert Jordan!
  5. From 2006 - 2013, Dragonmount hosted a Wheel of Time podcast called The 4th Age. Our intrepid podcasters covered a wide variety of topics across 112 hour-long episodes. After a long technical hiatus, all 112 of those episodes are now available for you to download and enjoy. We plan to launch a new podcast with new hosts to cover the upcoming Wheel of Time TV show. We have our crew, but are still planning our approach, which will include patterning with an established podcast network to create and deliver top-notch WoT TV commentary. We'll have more info about that in the future. In the meantime, enjoy these 112 legacy episodes!
  6. The Dragonmount staff have re-opened our Discord chat server and invite you to come and join live discussions about the Wheel of Time books, TV show, and community. If you're not familiar with it, Discord is a popular text and voice chat application. You can use it for free in your browser, in a desktop app, or on a mobile device. We'll especially be publicizing the Discord chat during live events or on popular news days, such as #WoTWednesday when the WoT TV show producers share exciting information about the upcoming show. Also, if you're a Patreon subscriber, we'll be using Discord for our bi-monthly chats with notable members of the Wheel of Time franchise and community. Come join this awesome part of the WoT and DM community!
  7. As part of our on-going effort to prepare the website for the forthcoming Wheel of Time TV show, we've added a "new" (really older, but improved) website feature called Clubs. A Club is a group you can join at Dragonmount where you can meet people with shared interests. We have 3 basic types of clubs: Specific Interest Clubs, Wheel of Time themed clubs, and a role-playing club. Specific-Interest Clubs: such as the Bela Fan Club, Brandon Sanderson Cosmere Club, or the DM Writers Club, are mostly unstructured and intended to foster discussion around those topics. Themed Clubs: these clubs are based on Wheel of Time organizations such as the White Tower, Band of the Red Hand, or Ogier. Each club will have some sort of structure to it and is a great way to meet fans with similar interests. Role Playing Club: Our Wheel of Time roleplaying Club allows you to participate in forum-based role-playing, a feature we've had since 1998! All Clubs are 100% free to join. Just had over to https://dragonmount.com/clubs and join as many as you like. You can even inquire with the Club leader about being a moderator or co-leader, or start your own club. (New Club requirements) In addition to adding Clubs, we've archived many of our older forums in order to better focus them on 3 areas: the books, the TV show, and "Off Topic." For long-time members, don't worry, all of the older social groups, role-playing, and forum games have been shifted over to the Clubs. If you are looking for something specific, just ask! If you'd like to participate, just register for a free account and get started! Visit our Clubs now More info on our forums Requirements to start your own Club
