    I'm Jeff and I was referred to this site by a person on World of Warcraft...of all things. I have several toons on the game that are named after WoT characters. Im 55 and retired so reading, WOW, my wife and coaching high school football are my passions. I was introduced to WoT by a Army buddy in 2005 and since then I've read the series three times. The first reading held me fast and became part of my life...sort of and each day was a new adventure with Rand, Matt, Perrin, Egween, Nyn and all. I guess like many of you, I believe the series could have continued with great detail but RJ was working against time itself and there are many questions that did not get answered which has left a void inside me. Re-reading the series didn't fill the void that is ever present. Its hard to pick out a "fav" character but I guess Rand has to be the one I most liked. All were presented well and had strings attached to my heart but what Rand was facing and his hope for humanity was well thought out, planned and presented by Robert!

    I think this site is a good thing... Like me, many people have a void left by the series and I am sure that this site helps them with that void!

    Welcome to Tar Valon! I, too was introduced to the series in 2005, but it was a fellow Marine who for me hooked. :)

    We're also in the middle of celebrating Bel Tine, so things are a little crazy around here, but feel free to dive in wherever you'd like!

    Thank you as well! I assume you are of the Red Ajah with the red banner?

    Yep! The banner colors for senior members indicate what Ajah or Company they are from based on the color.
