    Hey all! Wow, this community is huge! And very confusing! I discovered The Wheel of Time in June 2016, and now, November 2017, I'm 77% done with aMoL. I've been a member of several Facebook fan groups for a while, but I'm new here. I've been using the tower library for the chapter summaries for a while now, for those times I either lost track of what was happening, or a section confused me. Great stuff, that library.
    In real life, I'll introduce myself as Jeni. I'm from West Texas, USA, and I'm an inventory manager by day, and a bibliophile and coffeeholic all the time.
    My character, however, is Adanys Wynterwulf. My mother is a powerful Aes Sedai of the yellow Ajah, and my father is a Wolfbrother very strong in the Wolf Dream. I was born with both the spark and the ability to talk to wolves. I left my village and my father's name, Mond'wil, behind. I became Adanys Wynterwulf instead. To the wolves I am only Wynterwulf, as my coat is snow white. I left home with the intent to travel the world, and 3 years later, that's exactly what I am doing. I declined to go the White Tower, instead my mother taught enough to not hurt myself and those around me, and to defend my life should I need it.
    :-)geek I hope such "geek"ery is welcome here LOL)

    Hey welcome! We're glad to have you :D we do some minor role-playing here but it's not a full blown rp site, however a good number of us myself included have little back history stuff about who we'd be in Randland :giggle as an example I'd be the daughter of an Arafellan bellmaker, an archer who went to join the white tower but burned herself out and became a Gaidin instead, for the live events it gives a good theme for crafting outfits ^^

    Thanks everyone! Enya, I found it through the chapter summaries. I decided to check out the main site just recently and discovered I could become a member. I'm a little sad that I'm almost done reading the books, so I'm looking for ways to stay in the community.

    Hello and welcome. The community is pretty active with the forums and chat to help you stay active daily. Of course there's the anniversary gathering every year if you can make it too.

    Anniversary? You're not referring to JordanCon by any chance, are you?

    Nope, although I think we generally get a booth there. We host several events each year for our members. For North America we just had Fall Ball in Grand Rapids, MI as a tourist-style event and then we'll have our Anniversary Party in the spring in Idaho that's more reunion-style. The locations change each year based on bids from members.

    Hi! Welcome to the site! I love the story you came up with, and look forward to seeing you around the boards.

    I guess my backstory would be I am a former Accepted who learned what she could from the Tower to keep from hurting herself, then decided that being a protector was more her style, so petitioned to leave. She then requested entry into the Tower Garrison and viola! Recruit, then Soldier Ana was born! Ana is probably Cairhien, cause she/I is/am short with pale skin and dark hair. I also gotta go with the nationality that essentially has Mardi Gras (Cairhien Feast of Lights, when they all go nuts), but is otherwise reserved since I live in Louisiana in RL.

    RL events are awesome! You should totally consider going to one!

    My first reaction to "Come meet me!" was to just reply "No."


    I suppose that tells you all you need to know, really.

    My backstory, and my actual story, is that I'm a hermit that wandered into the Tower one day, and an annoying small evil woman found him and dragged him all over the world, and then we got married. And bonded.


    :p



    My wife is Roheryn. And she's probably going to torment me for this later with her cold toes pressed against my spine.


    Welcome to the Tower!

    And if it tells you anything about me, I just turned to him and said "My toes aren't cold! I'm wearing fuzzy socks!" and promptly shoved my foot at him... XD
