    It's going to be great to start getting to know people!

    My name is Vorusean el'Korim and I have just joined last night. (Had to wait for permission to use my avatar...) I am sure some of you already know my wife, Dovienya el'Korim. She has been reading the books and has been a member of TarValon.net for years, currently of the White Ajah. I, myself, have just been going to some of the get-togethers, meeting some of the other members of the Tower for a while. Listen, if you haven't ever tried Warder Sausage, you're missing out...

    So needless to say, after much prodding, and less than inconspicuous prodding at that, by my wife, I started reading the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. Truly, I have always been a fan of fantasy and can say I am a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson and John Gwynne, not to mention the other amazing authors out there. I suppose that, logically, it doesn't make sense for somebody who loves Sanderson's and Tolkien's works to not read the Wheel of Time. So now, after four months of reading or so, I have read ten books (including New Spring) and cannot believe I have waited so long. (This is where Dovienya and all of our friends say, "We told you so.") So thank you again to Dovienya, and especially Lireina and Jaim, who welcomed me into your home and White Tower Family!

    But seriously, it is an amazing world and yes they were right that I was dumb for waiting so long. Nevertheless, here I am and I want to say hello and thank you in advance for allowing me to be a part of the community. I just need to avoid the spoilers because I still have some reading left to do :D

    Glad to see that you finally made it! *screen-shots the sections where you call yourself "dumb"*

    You would have to bring Jaim's warder sausage into this, wouldn't you? :lol

    It's great to meet you, Vorusean! This gives me hope that, one day, I might be able to browbeat Mr. Sothron into joining the site, too :lol

    You could always lock him in a room with nothing but a chair and The Books. And a goodly stock of ale, of course. :beer

    Oh, he's read the books. We actually met at a different (now defunct) WoT site. He's just obstinate :D
