Hello everyone!

I’m Jarel Ryden. I’m excited to be here!

To be completely honest, I have always been a big fan of fantasy novels, but somehow I had never heard of Wheel of Time before last year. When I heard a show was going to be released, I decided I would try to read the books beforehand and stay ahead of the show.

Who is your favorite character in The Wheel of Time and why? Currently, I’m halfway through TDR and I think Perrin is my favorite character, though I wish sometimes that he would just…accept his role in the Pattern. I suppose that will probably come later.

How did you find TarValon.Net? I was using it as a way to make sure I didn’t miss anything important while reading

What do you do? (student? job? hobbies?) I’m a design engineer but my real hobbies are Twitch streaming (ask for details ;)), playing music, and exercise.

Where are you from? What languages to you speak? I’m from Texas but I recently moved to Missouri. I speak English, but I can understand Spanish decently well and I’m also trying to learn Italian and Japanese.

What is your favorite book or author other than Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time? A bit cliche, I know, but I am a huge LotR fan.

I’m happy to be here!

:welcome Glad you found us! Please reach out if you have any questions as you get settled in. :D

I'd love to know what kind of stuff you stream on Twitch. My husband follows lots of streamers and I like to stay at least semi informed. :P

I stream kindof a lot of stuff but usually platformers, sim games, or other types of story oriented games! Lately it’s been a lot of Hollow Knight, Celeste, and Cities: Skylines!


Welcome!! I used to be a design engineer, but moved to quality assurance about 5 years ago. What sort of industry are you in?

I’m in the aerospace industry! I think I like it so far, so I see no reason to change things up anytime soon

Oh cool! How long have you been doing it?

Also, are you a board game person? If so, what's one of your favorite board games?

I loved Cities: Skylines! Its been a while now but I enjoyed it. Have you ever played Banished? It's a smaller game but I accidently spent so long on it - the mechanics and setting are so fun.

I’ve been streaming almost 3 years! My community is pretty small, but I still enjoy it. And yes, I love board games! I’m a big fan of Scythe, Carcassonne, and Catan. I have a collection of about 25 games on my shelf!

I have not played Banished but I’ve heard some good things about it! Ha, maybe I’ll even stream it one of these days ;)

I love Carcassonne and Catan, and I've heard great things about Scythe but haven't tried it yet. My current favorite games are Terraforming Mars and Genotype (this one is super new and was funded via Kickstarter). I like both of those a great deal because they play well with others but also have a really good solo mode for the times when no one is around to play with me. :P
