Hey yall!
My name is Edynol, but everyone calls me Edy. I am from Texas and am a big WoT fan. I have read all the books so far and can't wait for the next ones. I hope to have some great discussions here with other WoT fans.:)

Sarevok 06-14-2010 03:44 PM

Yay!!! Another newbie! :D

Tell use something about yourself! (if you want to)
Where are you fr... Oh, you got that one.

What's your favourite WoT book?
Favourite non-WoT book?
Anything else you want to share?

Edynol 06-14-2010 05:05 PM

My favorite WoT book has always been the last one. So for now, TGS is my favorite.

My favorite non-WoT book is LotR, probably not too surprising. When they say RJ has dominated the world Tolkien began to reveal, I think they were dead on. I love this series alot more than LotR.

As for everything else, I like rock and country music. I live on the outskirts of a small town in the middle of the woods on the Trinity River, which is probably why I like Rand and the Two Rivers folk so much. I identify with them on alot of personal levels.

My Favorite character is Mat, bar hopping, kissing girls, playing dice. Though I play poker intead of dice, same thing different game. lol. I tend to be sarcastic alot and from reding Mat's PoVs, we think alot alike as well.

Well that's me in a nutshell. A modern-day Mat I guess you could say.

Welcome to the insanity, Edy! I'm sure you'll fit right in. :) In a good way. Really.

Edynol 06-14-2010 11:51 PM

Thanks! Your name looks familiar....Ahh maybe it's just me.:p

Consider yourself officially welcomed to Theoryland EDY!! (just don't try out your Mat antics on these Ladies....mwahahahaha)As I'm sure you've noticed, we have a pretty decent community of WoT fanatics over here. One of the ways that we keep it all friendly is a short list of courtesies we ask people to follow and, once in a while, actually do get followed. Imagine that! Insane people following some sort of order!

1) Don't flood the board with multiple THREADS all at once.
Allow us the time to absorb, evaluate, and discuss, OR LAUGH at one or two ideas, OR JOKES at a time. Some of us like to do a little research before responding and that can take a little time. Of course, we also have those others who are just a bit slow. Read that as "just can't handle more than one thought in their heads at once" or "dial-up modem". Your choice. I'd suggest "have a real life", but not likely. Does anyone still have dial up?'s getting hard to give the slow people an excuse

Addendum to 1) Try to stay on topic.
Going off on tangents can be super fun and is something we are all guilty of your's truly included but try and keep threads on topic unless, 1) the thread is dead or 2) the thread naturally moves over to another topic. This rule is much more lax for joke threads, pop culture threads...etc.

2) Try to back up your opinions & theories.
You'll get a lot more respect if you can. Quotes from the books (of which you CANNOT read too much) are your best weapon. Quotes from interviews are semi-acceptable. Gut feelings are pseudo-acceptable. Whitecloak blind-faith is best submitted while wearing asbestos panties.

3) Feel free to get as emotionally involved as you'd like.
Discussions can get very heated. But try not to take things personally. Remember: we only insult the ones we love. Or the ones we eventually hand over to the Trollocs.

4) Be respectful.
A lot of people have been around Theoryland for a long time. Being a Youngling means you're new around here. We do understand that you may have been reading WoT forever, but if you're gonna pick a fight regarding a WoT theory with someone who's an Elder, Ancient or Hero, understand that they've been around for a while now, and probably have posting friends. And Tamyrlin is Lord of the Board for a reason: this whole place is his brainchild. Keep that in mind. They also have posting enemies.... a good little bit of information to tuck away.

Addendum to 4: This is an international community.
In regards to the Non-WoT discussion groups, please respect the opinions of people from nations and cultures other than your own, even if you disagree with them or the policies of their leaders and politicians. Try to remember that not everyone here has the same outlook or life experience that you might. If you want to send a letter or e-mail to anyone in particular to indicate any specific moral, educational, intellectual, or genetic deficiencies they may have, feel free. Just please don't do it here.

Addendum 1 to Addendum 4: We don't all agree about the issues regarding the military action in Iraq. Post about this issue at your own risk. Things seem to be under control now. Though, there have been some flare-ups….be careful. We have had our own TLers over there, back home safe and sound, hope it stays that way. (I can't wait to be able to delete this Addendum.)

Addendum 2 to Addendum 4: Please no angry profanity.
If you really need to tell someone off, be creative. And replacing characters with @$$ does NOT constitute creativity. I like tend to like the Shakespearean approach myself. The smarter and more subtle you are with it, just makes the person look that much more an idiot.

Addendum 3 to Addendum 4: Please be nice to Newbies.
We were all new at one time you are one right now and there is no need to come down on anyone for asking questions that to the elder community may be basic knowledge. This is for you to remember after you've been here awhile.

Addendum 4 to Addendum 4: Please TRY not to feed the Trolls.
Trust me, it ain't easy at times, but ignore the obvious instigators. Just sit yourself down between the Heroes and Ancients sharpening the WTF Couch sticks. There are many on the board who know how to deal with this breed, leave them to it. It can be quite entertaining. If things get too offensive to the population in general, Mods will intervene. Feel free, however, to respond to Gonzo, our Resident Troll, we love him like a red-headed step child.

5) Please don't use the New Users Forum to recruit.
We have plenty of room in the other forums for begging for support for factions, theories, and the TCA. Please let the newbies look around for a while before taking sides in any pseudo-battles. ~looks around~ our biggest offender has not been around for a while ~sniff~

6) Most important: Have Fun!
We do this because we love it and like to think that we are, at least, reasonably intelligent. Hell, some of us have deluded ourselves into believing that we've evolved into supremely intelligent beings! Half the posters here believe that divine supremacy has already come to them! My vote is for Frenzy, and myself, of course. You know the Truth when you see it. Don't let T and her massive bag o' quotes fool you. We will assume some intelligence on your part. You found us, didn't you? Until you prove otherwise…and there are many who have, you'll be safe. If you get hurt if you do prove otherwise, I will offer my one free Healing…but just that once. After that you get to meet a special pair of chains, Mwahahahaa

Remember, you EARN your respect here, it's not given out freely and some may never know the pleasure.

Welcome to our little rounded corner! It’s a great time!

Welcome to TL, Edynol and Alot :D

Nazbaque 06-21-2010 01:40 PM

Welcome Edy!!

You may call me Naz!

I will start roasting in a bit, but first I must point out that the person who has dominated the world Tolkien began to reveal is Terry Pratchett not RJ.

*sets himself on fire*

*roasts marshmallows*

Been busy Naz? It's not like to you to be several days late to the party.

Nazbaque 06-21-2010 02:00 PM

Haven't been at home at all in more than a week. And I think your dirty minds are more than capable of guessing what I've been doing so I shall not reveal more.

Bane Darkwulf 06-21-2010 07:29 PM

Restocking your supply of burn ointment?

~puts Naz out, douses him with napalm, lights him up again~

Nazbaque 06-22-2010 12:02 AM

Oh not napalm! The bloody stuff causes such an itch in my private regions. Do that again and you'll have to watch me scratch my balls!

Bane Darkwulf 06-22-2010 12:11 AM

You can't scratch what you don't have, Naz.

Nazbaque 06-22-2010 12:39 AM

While this statement is true in itself I fear I don't see what it has to do with our conversation

Bane Darkwulf 06-22-2010 12:45 AM

Didn't the constant burning and large doses of fairydust cause you to lose your genitals?

Nazbaque 06-22-2010 12:58 AM

Hmmmmmmm... no I'm fairly sure that has never happened. I mean there was that one Saturday night... no if I had lost my genitals I wouldn't have them now and I do so I haven't. That clear things for you?

lurk 07-05-2010 09:42 AM

Bane Darkwulf 07-05-2010 10:28 AM
