Howdy all,
I am very happy to find this forum! I am currently sort of re-reading the first trilogy and loving it.

I say "sort of re-reading" because I never read all of it the first time. That was long ago, when I was a teenager in the early 80s. At that time I read "The Power That Preserves" and then most of "Lord Foul's Bane".

I read them in the wrong order. And I never got to the end of "LFB" for some reason I can't remember.

Anyway, I am a huge fan of Tolkien and George R. R. Martin, and I recently thought i should go back and read TCOTCTU.

I bought them for my Kindle Paperwhite and started at the beginning this time. I am enthralled once again. Sure, Thomas is a whiny, sour pain-in-the-arse protagonist.....but the story and all the characters put a spell of enchantment on me.

I finished the first book and am a bit past the halfway point of the second. Things are pretty darn bad in the story right now. Downright depressing. Very, very, very bleak....

Anyway, like I said, glad to find this forum of other fans.

Be Welcome to the Watch, pesky.
Be Well Come and True! I envy you your first time journey of the chrons. Such wonder yet to encounter.

Be sure to check out other areas of the forum outside of SRD-themed ones. We have topics to discuss nearly anything! But I would avoid most of the SRD-related forums, as spoilers of the first and second chrons are rampant, and even last chrons spoilers pop up here and there.

Other than that, enjoy your time here!

Welcome to the Watch, peskypesky!

May you thrive here...and contribute. Worry not about deserving your name...we already have well-entrenched prolific posters. Bring it!

Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

BAH! prolific is one thing, pesky another!
Pesks have their own tradition.
Feel free to indulge that one too.
Just be aware there are snarks [I am self-labeled, but plenty of others are members, even if they deny knowledge and/or membership]
Not to mention pomps, persnicketies, pimps, players, plebes, psychopomps, paganistas, poindexters, pricks, prisses...and that's just the damn P's.

It's a cabaret.
Wilkommen [some french shit] Welcome!

By my glaive, what a manner of a wight names themselves thus? A man, a ranyhyn, or an ur-vile? We bid you welcome nonetheless.

Ooh, ooh, you must read the second chronicles!!

Welcome to the Watch, pp!

It's rare that we get an almost complete TCTC newbie. When you're ready dip into the forums (fora) and add your impressions.
