    As decades have passed, the Black Ajah has steadily infiltrated the Tower. They have subverted valuable members of our community -- or joined already devoted to the Shadow. It is our mission, members of TarValon.Net, to seek and find the insidious and elusive members of the Black Ajah.

    Welcome to the 2021 Site Fundraiser: TarValon.Net Takes on the Black Ajah. This fundraiser will run for the next four weeks, from August 20 - September 17, 2021.

    Our site fundraiser exists to keep TarValon.Net running. The funds raised are used to pay for server and domain expenses, keeping us ad-free, miscellaneous things like QuickTopics (used for Mafia games), advertising at JCon and through social media, etc. It is also used to fund the Robert Jordan Memorial Scholarship, which is near and dear to my heart. :) Our community is self-funded, and any donation helps keep us running and thriving.

    As donations come in, and our event unfolds, we have several scheduled events that will open up for the community to enjoy. We will also be adding raffle prizes to the prize pool. Members of the community have stepped up and donated Black-Ajah-themed prizes, our Amyrlin is having a tea party for 1, and if we manage to raise $3,000 then the grand prize of an Anni/Euro ticket (not to exceed $250 USD) will be added to the pot!

    How are we doing?
    We have raised $2,806.49. Thank you to everyone who has donated! You have helped TarValon.Net with our site initiatives, and I appreciate you greatly. :hug

    But they don't exist!

    (or maybe they're just not recruiting right now and that's why they don't respond to my emails :look)

    I know, I know but I need to start my campaign of evil early, because I'll inevitably get distracted halfway through and end up knitting scarves for squirrels when I'm supposed to be doing something totes nefarious.

    Agreed - a couple winters ago, squirrels completely destroyed my deck furniture. It was plastic that looked like wood... :facepalm
