Good morning. Name's Jonathan Moran. Above nearly all else, I value education. Lacking the money for school, however, I became a truck driver to raise money. The long hours on the road necessitated a distraction-free form of entertainment. Naturally, I started with audio books. It's been a long time since I last read or listened to a fantasy novel. A few years ago, I put down Assasin's Fate, and couldn't bring myself to read another book. My long sabbatical ended with Eye of the World, and I've been progressively consuming the series book by book since. Currently on the sixth book. Sadly, very few of my friends have read WoT. Those that have didn't like it. I turned online to find a place to discuss. Found this forum, and decided it was leagues better than the subreddit. It appears this forum is strong on the role play aspect. Please give me time to figure out a character. Lastly, I need to make an important request. I couldn't find any specific rules and policies thread, so I'm assuming the rules are the usual forum rules. That being said, I know quite a lot of forums ban talk of any politics and relegion. The truth is, philosophy and theology are some of the only things I've ever been really good at. I hate having to conceal that part of me. So I request that I be allowed to talk freely of my theological and philosophical convictions and values. I promise nobody will be offended, it really isn't as volatile a subject as people make it out to be. I, in turn,will listen to and consider everyone else's beliefs, values, and identities without bias or prejudice. I look forward to meeting all of you, and replying to all your threads.
