Introductions

Recommended Posts

Hi...I'm new to Forums of any topic. First timer....my name is Alison (i.e. BreadSalt&Wine). I've tried uploading my pic to no avail. Any suggestions? Oh, and I live in the North...the land of winter, where we are currently experiencing ice and snow-abounding! I haven't seen the road under my feet for may days now! Brrrr, could use a bearskin wrap now! Hope to chat with many of you soon.

Thanks for posting all that!

What got me here was the idea of RPing... but they call it a MUSH here... so I'm holding back until I find out what the frak that's supposed to stand for. :dunno:

Never saw such a fast-moving forum, either.

Looks like I have a lot to learn, like how to upload an avatar here.

Exorcist: I'm also into RPG - but I haven't really thought about doing it here.

Hello, Professor Plum - welcome here! =o)

Thanks for the welcome. Ironically, if I ever found myself in Westeros, Tyrion is the guy I'd want to talk to first.

The RPG here, the MUSH (even the folks I talked to over there didn't seem sure what that stood for) is highly structured. It might even be too complex for a newcomer to consider fun, but the faithful sure seem to enjoy it. I hear that there were 30 players gathered for a recent tourney... so it definitely works well for those taking part.

I'm going to hold off until I have read the books, just to absorb the Culture & all the rest of it.

BTW- it takes place in the year 164, over a century prior to where the story-line is currently.

I don't believe in coincidences. I'd go for Tyrion too.

Perhaps we could make out something together?

Do you play other RPGs? And perhaps we should move our conversation to PM. ;o)

Hello to everybody.

After some time lurking, it's time to introduce myself and start participating in the forum.

I've been very reluctant to read ASoIaF for years, even if many of my friends and family were fans. But a year ago started to see the tv series (yes, almost a year after season one was released), and decided to give the first book a chance. That was the point of no return. I read all the novels in a few months, and since then I am in the long waiting for "The Winds of Winter" :(

I didn't even realise there was an introduction thread until just now (spending most of my time in the general novels section, hah)

So hi everyone! I feel like it's a bit redundant to introduce myself by saying "I LIKE BOOKS!" but there we go, I've said it! Is "I like ASOIAF!" too obvious, as well? :lol: Favourite characters have to be Brienne, Jaime and Tyrion. And Davos because Davos is awesome and underrated.

I'm enjoying all the theories on these forums, it seems like I've somehow missed a massive chunk of stuff on my first readthrough (I didn't even pick up on Frey Pies!)

I also love dogs (Dakonic, if you're still around from the last page of the thread, your job sounds amazing).

And I'm slightly addicted to tablet games, I bought my partner a tablet for his birthday and now I can't stop myself borrowing it constantly just to play silly games on it. :laugh:

Thank you so much !!! I should have responded earlier....as you see, it worked! Enjoying the Forum...just wish there was a "live chat" available for open discussion. I like to "pass the ball back and forth" so to speak...this takes a while.

From my experience over the last couple of weeks (I was hanging around for a bit before I signed up), some threads almost seem like a live chat with how quickly people tend to respond! Don't think I've ever been a member of such an active forum before.

Hello, Lady Seaworth.

Welcome.

Thank you! It's good to be here :)
