Introductions

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!



Just thought I'd drop a quick hello before I throw myself into all the ongoing discussions.



I discovered ASoIaF through Game of Thrones, but after seing the first season I knew I had to read the books. Finished Dance last summer. I was going like a storm through the first three books, but found it a little hard with AFFC and ADWD. Still, obsessed with the saga.



I tend to go against the crowd with my favourites (loving Sansa, hating Daenerys), but from what I saw, there are fans of all kinds of characters and Houses around here, which makes me very excited to join the discussions.


I do not have a favourite House, but I have a least favourite one and it is the Greyjoys. Honestly, not even the Freys annoy me as much as the bloody krakens.



Well, I guess that's that :kiss:

Welcome, and hopefully you enjoy yourself here. You'll find many other Sansa fans and Dany detractors, but just as a word of caution, threads on those two characters tend to get heated rather quickly.

Anyway, have fun.

Welcome @Rhaenys Reborn,

if you ever fancy rereading, give the combined AFfC and ADwD reading order by All Leather Must be Boiled a chance, I am trying it out just now.

Yes, the Ironborn annoy me too, but they are there for a reason. All POVs are needed to accomplish the story...

Have fun with the forum!

Hey!

I'm mostly into Grand strategy games, like Crusader Kings 2, or Europa 4. However, I am also an avid RPG player and I've been in love with the Elder Scrolls since Arena.

However I'm not that big a fan of Elder Scrolls Online :P

I help run an alliance on Politics And War, a text based nation/politics game, which is fun. As I can pretty much RP a badass Targaryen :P

Welcome @RagnarBuliwyf,

have fun, but beware the forum is vast and full of spoilers!

Thanks Jon, and I've staying away from most areas. I've not finished the books yet <_<

Thank you for your answer. Well, I guess I'm more into p&p. Yeah. Old-school gaming. With pens and dice.

Hey folks! I joined a while ago, but I never really posted at all in this forum (except here in the intro page), so I feel obliged to introduce myself anew (as I never really posted on this forum at all).


My name is Charlie, I live in Toronto, Canada... and I will go ahead and say that I became a fan of the series when season 1 first started. I had heard about the books before that, but never intended to read them until season 1 started... and ended, and I just couldn't wait another year to find out 'what happened next', so I went ahead and bought & read the book series.



Fell in love with the books just as much (if not more) than the show, and can't get enough of both ever since!


Anyway I've been lurking on here occasionally, so I figure why not make my humble presence (re)known. I also do YouTube video reviews (For the show episodes) and theory videos on occasion, and if anyone was at all remotely interested, you can find them via the ink in my signature.


Anyway thats all. :-)


I look forward to exploring this place in greater depth and sharing my love of GoT/ASoIaF with the rest of you!


Cheers!


Charlie
