Hi All
« on: April 08, 2015, 08:00:42 AM »
Hi All,

My name is Martyn
New to this forum and just thought I'd say a quick hello.
I've been a huge fan of fiction (mostly Fantasy) for as long as I can remember and thought it's about time to get more involved in discussions and delve into a good community of like minded people.
Look forward into talking to you all more

Martyn
Huge fan of Fantasy and other Fiction Genres, mostly down to my mother who got me involved in Fantasy from an early age
I also have a Bearded Dragon called Draco, 3 Leopard Geckos called Mojo, Ziva & Fiddler and last but not least is my very cheeky Quaker Parrot Loki

Welcome to FF. It's where we talk about goats and stuff...and sometimes fantasy.
So which are your favourite books?

Thanks for welcome, i can't wait to get into some deep discussions with you all.

So far Henry, my favourite series has been the Malazan Book of the Fallen, it's such an epic series with so much story and detail that I was really sad when I finished book 10, although starting the Malazan Empire series was nice getting back into that world

Like this:


Now come on! It's not fair to pick that point in the story. You need to show the part where the valiant goat has slain the dragon! That's the good part. Anyone looking at this would think the dragon wins!

(Damn. Another story I have to write.)


But, really, that's frickin awesome and funny, Henry. Massive kudos.

If I keep quoting I can get more dragons on this forum than goats  - but it's getting late down here and I'll have to go off line soon so I'll spare you all for today.

Apologies to Martyn and Bridgeburner Ash but you've had a roaring good welcome.

Remember that, from this day forward, you have chosen your faction. The Lord of Goats will be displeased.

I'm late for the welcoming party, but you already had a nice taste of the craziness around here  ;) Stick around, and you will find all this talk of goats and dragons extremely alluring.
