    Hello, lovely people! I have been away for a while. I took a break from the internet for a bit, and after that cleanse, I started watching Daniel Greene and listening to some podcasts on WoT. And I missed you all so much.

    So, what did I miss? Anything essential? What's the 411?

    Welcome back! I really like the White Tower podacast. ^^ Daniel Greene pops up on there sometimes. :D

    I love his YouTube channel, he has so many good insights into a lot of series.


    Also, generally, some more relevant info. I should have included in the first post- currently re-reading (via Audiobook, I cannot sit in silence at work) and I am on Lord of Chaos at the moment.

    I know that feeling! :lol I did a re-read with the audiobooks last year. It was an interesting experience, because I was so used to reading the physical books, but I ended up liking them. ^^

    Welcome back to TarValon.net! :D As for what you've missed, that depends - how long have you been gone?

    It has been quite a while. Probably since 2018? Maybe 2017? I don't quite remember.

    • Gaidin have two bonds by default instead of one
    • There's a new TV show forum
    • We got a new logo that includes the companies' colors
    • We have an unofficial Discord server for chatting
    • A new Amyrlin and Keeper will be officially raised at Anni in March
    • We had a membership cleanup, to which you appear to have been subjected :p

    I noticed the logo! I think that is so cool. I am excited to read the TV forum, I am excited/apprehensive about the show overall and the casting so far, so I will check that out for sure. Re: the membership cleanup - are there any actions I should take to officially come back or is this thread okay?

    If you had a rank (resident citizen, novice/recruit, Accepted/Soldier, etc.) that you want back, you'll need to email membership@tarvalon.net and ask to be re-instated. Otherwise you can start fresh and it won't hurt anything.

    Just a quick note - just added an avi, and it is a photo of me (just edited). Is there a specific thread I should officially announce/post this in?

    Thank you! I originally planned on an avi from the internet, but I was nervous about copying someone else's or copyright/etc, so I figured an edited version of my own pic was the best way to go while maintaining certain aesthetic
