The game of " " one had me stumped as well....luckily that pesky EU hasn't just down Google yet!

Thankfully I'd seen those lord of the rings games, so that was easy....

Mb this is some sort of evil plot by that overlord dude to influence my susceptible mind :o
What lord? Whose rings?  ;)

I was highly amused by my two questions: "Who wrote the Game of Thrones?" and "George RR Martin wrote Game of what?"  :P

Well, may as well start off here. Im an avid fantasy reader and wannabe writer. I knew about Fantasy Faction but was staying away from message boards for a while. I'm in my late 30's and love fantasy of all types, usually the grittier stuff, but not straight all grimdark all the time

I'll be a regular here, I'm pretty sure.

My lords seem to trust me but I'm just 18

When I take my revenge on the Lannisters
Got engaged to a Frey so I could win a free pass
Can't get with Talisa but damn dat ass
Hey, hey, I wanna be Robb Stark..."

Welcome, Takoren. Glad you took the plunge, and we love regulars (and irregulars!) around here.
Wannabe writer? Just the place. If you haven't checked out the monthly writing contest, it's a great place to hone your skills.

Thanks, I'm really happy to be here.

And I'd say I fall into the "irregular" regular category!

Hi Takoren, welcome. Delighted to have another Dresden fan around, although not sure where it will be heading next.  Do you like Iron Druid as well, by any chance?

Just saying hello. It has been a while since i have been on any forums i admit. I am not new to writing, but just got past an 8 year stint of writers block with a rather unique take on fanesty i have been working on based upon the japanese Yokai that many animes and magmas are based around. It is an american take so I look forward to getting to you you guys and seeing what you have to say on the matter.

Hey all. I'm Silicon (Si), though I also go by Aspasia on some forums. I'm an avid reader, a hobbyist writer, and an A+ Internet lurker.  :D Well, I'm a bit tired of lurking and not participating so here I am! IRL I study biology and code a lot. I read all kinds of fantasy but especially love epics, low fantasy, and alt histories. If it's got an assassin in it, I'll read it at least once.

It looks like you guys have a pretty cool forum and community here, I'd like to join in! :D

Hi,

A fellow aficionado of fantasy/fiction signing in. This is my first book forum. Got to know about this place through a member in a football forum (where we inhabit a thread on fantasy books) and decided to sign up and try my hand in the story writing threads.

Looking forward to interacting with you all!

Howdy, Bender! Great decision you've made. It's a fun place to do whatever: write stuff, talk books, talk trash.  ;)
There's a monthly writing contest going on right now, so you jump in if you want. I'll look forward to your posts and stories.
