My beloved friends, for far too long have we been inactive. For far too long have we let our passions slumber, resting underneath a facade of passivity as we let the world of TFF go on by, untouched by our influence, which some call madness... and others call genius. Some of the founding members have moved on, and we pray that they may yet return to us, whereupon they will be welcomed with cries of joy. Some yet remain, dormant, hibernating - waiting until the winter has passed and spring returns, allowing them to return to walk abroad once more. Others yet have joined to swell our ranks. And so does the cycle of nature continue on, with the younglings joining the pack as we begin to rouse from our long slumber. Brothers and sisters, I call you to arms. For far too long has this forum known only peace, quiet, and tranquility. Who now remembers the days of old, in which we were feared, in which we wreaked terror and havoc amidst the shaking innocents and newcomers amongst TFF? I say that I do. And the elders remember as well, and so we passed on the tales to the younger generations, hoping that the time would one day come... as it has now. We shall bring fear and panic back into this forum. But in the doing, we shall restore glory and honor to the ASoIaF Empire, and extend our dominion over our rightful lands! Let our opponents tremble in fear; let the innocent dream on in blissful ignorance, unaware that we are uniting once more. I say to you that our first reign was full of wonder, but that is the past; now is the time for a new age, and a new order! We shall make this age such a one to eclipse the previous; we shall be such that in later years, we will be legend for the glory that we brought to ASoIaF and GRRM, as is only their rightful due. Let the ASoIaF Empire run rampant once more!
