    Hi everyone!
    I was introduced to WOT many, many years ago by a family member, and started of with New Spring, followed by TEotW, and TGH, then life happened. I picked the books up again last fall and got to TSR this time around, we'll see...
    My favorite char is Loyal, I like how he has so much old knowledge, but still is open to learn new things, even if that means his old knowledge may sometimes be proven incorrect. I also love his humor, and he can be said to have the utmost respect for nature, and the ways of the leaf, but still he will pick up a sword and defend his friends against harm.
    I was told about TV about a year ago, and have sort of been lurking since, I don't like making rash decisions (unless time is of the essence).
    Well like Loyal I like learning, and as such know so many little facts of seemingly insignificant things, and have countless hobbies and interests, but to name some;
    Crocheting, drawing, knitting, cooking, reading, jigsaw puzzles, yoga, and I newly started up learning how to create in Gimp.
    Oh! I also newly started up with d&d, and wished for the 5E starter kit for Christmas (fingers crossed), so if anyone plays... *point at self* (I'm European):-)

    Welcome, Chiema ^^

    There should be threads on most, if not all, of those topics here. Feel free to jump in whenever you want!

    What other books do you enjoy?

    *snooping around*
    I mostly read facts and fantasy. I like nature (science) and learning new languages (well the grammar part at least :p) Harry Potter is a clear favorite in the fantasy genre, currently re-reading for next gen (authors weird opinions, not included just saying..)

    awww you guys are all so nice and huggable! thank you :D

    Discord is your better bet. IRC has kind of died.


    Also hello and welcome!!

    Welcome!

    IRC is what we used to use, the chat rooms still exist, but aren't normally where people are anymore. Discord has taken over.
