One, I love this. Two, the quote function actually worked on my phone. I love improvements.

Oh, and excuse me, but welcome Dora Vee!

Sorry to be away so long, Red. Yeah, the double welcome is funny, but I get a real kick out of "BREADfisher King". I'm glad that didn't stick!

I read it as BREADfisher! LOL! Hi!

Hi! I've been a frequent guest for quite awhile, and I thought it would be a good time to join, what with TUC on its way in a few months.

I stumbled on PoN maybe around the time TTT was published (2006). Looking back, I was intrigued by the multiple POVs and the general world-building. Now, six books into the Slog, the damn thing is so damn BIG.

Thanks for establishing this forum. I was never on Westeros or 3Cs, and this whole thing is new to me. But I think I'm up to speed on etiquette.

Cheers!

Hi Breadfisher King!  Cool name!  Cheers to you too!

Hi BK!  Such a good time to be a fan!  Welcome!
MG double welcoming BFK is hilarious. I miss these two :(

I go a few days without internet or cell reception and the forum is flooded with fascinating new people. Geez. Maybe I'm the problem ;) . Welcome

YOU being the problem is less of a problem than if you weren't.

IMO, it's so radically different from many of the others. I tend to be a sucker for philosophy and found much of the story interesting and thought-provoking.

This series got to me in ways that no other series actually has and I think that will be hard to replicate.

For me its the evil depravity ... the philosophy ( or anti-philosophy ) all goes over my head. Welcome all the same.
