    Hi all,
    I'm a long time WoT fan. I started reading the books in the mid 90s and have read the entire series. I recently started another re-read, about a week ago, in preparation for the amazon series. I used to write 2 different rpg style characters in a group back in 99-00 but it wasn't on this site. I'm really looking forward to writing again!

    In the real world I'm a real estate agent, roller derby official and mom of 2 boys. Originally from Austin, Texas, I now live in the cornfed midwest of St. Louis, Missouri.

    Can't wait to meet everyone!

    In the light,
    Phaedra

    Welcome, Phaedra!

    I've never done any rpg related stuff except gaming myself, but I am doing a reread of the series now too :)

    I hope you'll like it here! ^^

    Hello and welcome! I used to be a WoT rper myself back in the day. Where did you write at? (Sorry, I'm totally nosy. It's the Blue in me ;))

    Make yourself at home and just ask if you have any questions!

    Welcome to Tar Valon!

    I used to do WoT RPing on an email based RP site called Avalon way back in the early 2000s. I do miss it. It was a lot of fun.

    You know what @Cahalan Sothron, I simply can NOT remember where I used to write. I thought it was maybe the grey tower? But I've slept since then and truly don't remember. I do remember my characters though. Blaise Bentareth and Darcilynn din Bryngal Roughwater ;)

    I'm familiar with GT, though never wrote there until maybe a couple of years ago. I used to play at Netland White Tower/Silklantern/Portal Stones for most of my RP days. Always good to see RPers come back to the fandom even if a bunch of the old writing sites aren't still around :)

    @Jocasta Braithe a favorite name? Because of mythology or???

    It reminds me a bit of the protagonist in Kushiel's Dart as well.

    I just heard it and liked it! I always like "AE" names. I used to play a warrior called Phaedra Dawnbridge in a D&D game. :)
