    Hey all TFF members,

    Just wanting to say hello! Been trying to find a message board with a broad fantasy focus for a few weeks now, but rather than looking for a FORUM I was looking for appropriately themed websites and then checking THEIR forums, never thinking there would simply be a website which solely functioned as a forum! Hindsight eh!

    So let me be forthcoming and say I am a writer and reviewer of fantasy products, and I'm here to talk to people like me! I do have a website, but I've read the TOS and I don't want to be flagged as a spammer so I'll spend some time hopefully getting to know everyone, and if people want to ask me about my site they are free to do so!

    Just happen to see what I thought didn't exist anywhere actually already does! So hello!

    I'm also going to point out that in my excitement, I have noticed that EVERY sentence I typed was closed with an "!"...I don't know why that just happened but I'm gonna go ahead and leave it haha.

    Hope to chat with everyone more,

    Colin

    Hi there Colin Poole and welcome to TFF :)
    If you're a writer you should come check out the scribes' house folder waaaaay down the page. There's a short story contest starting soon if you'd like to join in the fun.

    Glad to see you've hunted out the fantasy forum for your favors. TFF is kind of weird though, it is like a general forum about everything almost except everybody has fantasy in common so there are things for that too.

    Lord Yuan, meaning TFF is not specifically just for Fantasy, but everyone shares that common interest so that's what the posts end up all being about?

    Well it is mostly for fantasy, just that there is tons of variety too, so at some point or another yes, dragons will get brought up. Like just now. It justifies itself maybe?

    It's mostly a place where people who love fantasy hang out but they talk about waayyy more than just fantasy, if that makes any sense.

    Welcome to TFF Colin!

    What Lord Yuan is saying is that most discussion now isn't that much about fantasy, but that we all have fantasy in common. Every so often some good fantasy topics crop up, which is quite fun.
    But you are most welcome to have a look through and reply to topics, new and old, make your own, etc.

    Hope you have a great time here! :) You might notice that I too often use only exclamation marks :D

    Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone! Back home from work and back at the forums checking out new topics! You know what I'm not even going to stop with the exclamation marks...in life I am ALWAYS animated, NEVER without a smile on my face, so I suppose this is my way of conveying those emotions in print. ....!

    Haha! In real life, my face is set and does not change, so exclamation marks allow me to convey my emotions, which I don't usually show.

    As to activity here, it usually drops slightly over summer and apparently it was quite empty here last week. Seems to be quite active now though.

    Thank you so much! So far the only think NOT to enjoy is how little work I get done while I explore all the forum threads! :)
