    Hi everybody! I have known about this site for over a year but have been holding off joining till I finished the books for fear of spoilers. Spoilers are the worst. My best friend has been here for awhile already and I'm excited to join this exciting community I keep hearing about. A bit about me: I've been married for 9 years to my husband, have an awesome corgi named Nova and a wonderful human son (he is 9 months old and was just baptized yesterday! ). I work full-time for an engineering firm in Southwest Ohio as a civil engineer and my favorite video game series is The Legend of Zelda.

    What is your favorite character in The Wheel of Time and why? Mat! Cause he is everything I wish I could be.
    How did you find TarValon.Net? Friends
    What do you do? (student? job? hobbies?) See above
    What is your favorite book or author other than Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time? I really enjoyed Ender's Game.

    Hello, Risula! :D

    I do not think you would have run into spoilers around here. The forums for the books are separated, as you might be able to see, and we do our best to put everything in spoilers, even within the book forums, themselves. At any rate, it is good to have you around here; better late than never. ^^

    Also, congratulations on your son's baptism. :)

    Welcome Risula! I can sympathize with you about the spoilers, it happened to me for a few minor things in WoT but something fairly major in ASOIAF. I absolutely love The Legend of Zelda :D What is your favourite game in the series?

    Congrats on your son's baptism! ^^ We have a pet named Nova too - she's a plump tortoiseshell cat who is about 5.

    Thanks!

    La but if something else catches on, thats fine too.

    Yes, yes they are.

    Yes, yes it is.

    Twilight Princess! Ocarina of Time is a close second.

    =D

    How did you choose the name? We were going with something spacey after the Cowboy Beebop corgi, Einstein. Our Nova's full AKC name is SuperNova to the Max.


    Thank you everyone for the warm welcome!
