    Suilad fellow Fantasy geeks!

    My name is Anna, I'm 26 years old and I'm from Sweden, though currently living in Scotland. I've been submerged in the Fantasy world all my life, having had parents who were both Lord of the Rings enthusiasts. I was also raised on Scandinavian Folklore, which has always been a major influence in modern Fantasy, so trolls, elves, giants and wights were frequent companions of mine. I grew up on movies like The Neverending Story and series like the BBC Narnia. I think I shall fit in here like a glove!

    Other interests and hobbies of mine besides Fantasy and Scandinavian Folklore are; Reading, Writing, Graphics, Photography, Movies, Music, Languages, Traveling and of course Internet communities/forums.

    Nice to meet you all. :)

    Welcome to TFF Rhovanion.
    There are separate forums here for photography, writing, reading, art, ...
    You may want to be careful around AlphaAlex; he is quite dangerous around young women.
    BTW, where are you from in Sweden? I've never been there myelf, but have a friend that comes from there and goes there a lot.

    Thank you for the welcome.

    Haha what do you mean "dangerous around young women"? You have me intrigued now.

    I was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. When I was 17 my family and I moved to a small harbor town on the southern east coast called Valdemarsvik in lovely Östergötland. Where's your friend from?

    Near Östergötland I think. There's a big lake in the south (about 300 km across) and his dad is from one side, his mum the other.

    Aye, there are two very large lakes in the south; Vänern and Vättern. Vänern is large and bulky, Vättern is long and more narrow. Vänern has Värmland and Dalsland on one side and Västergötland on the other. Vättern has Västergötland on one side and Östergötland and Småland on the other.

    Haha, thanks Alchemist!

    Why have some members red reputation points (like yourself) and others green?

    If you notice the little "balance scales" icon at the bottom of the avatar box in posts you can choose to approve or disapprove of posts. It is a way of giving rep to people. Green is good. Red is bad. Well...sorta. I specifically asked a mod to change all my green rep to red rep. Cause I'm evil like that...but only sorta evil. >.> -whistles innocently-

    what was that, Foi?
    A) You posted enough pics of yourself in the last week
    B) >.> don't be so weird.

    Anywayzzzz welcome to TFF, it's the best place to be (especially for scandinavians it seems.^^)
    A few little tips:
    -Do NOT be intrigued by Alpha Alex. The Druid was trying to help (jolly good that did :p) But yeah, you'll meet AA eventually. By then it might be too late.
    - Do ignore Foi when he posts weird like that
    - And Alchy is so NOT evil :D He asked a mod to change his green rep to red rep XD Rofl, Alchy, how sweet :p <3 ;) kidding

    With all that said: Enjoy your stay and when you get bored take a look around spam section: because if all else fails, spam is active. Usually >.>
    <.<
    :D

    RW, you forgot to warn Rho abt OR. There's no answer to what an extremely hungry wolf will eat for dinner. :D

    Just a bit of intro on a few of the members here:

    Foi in a nutsehll is an emotional nationalist, but still he will be pretty much easy to get along if you ignore this trait like I do. ^^

    RW is a German and likes to use the term "Yay -.-" :)

    Alch is a nice guy that won't explode unless you try to discuss religion with him lol! :D

    And lastly, pls be careful with AA. He's a pervert who will screw any girl below the age of 30. He might be a pedo for all we know. :p

    Awesome Azuren, that was totally not true -.-
    <.<
    darn it
    ^^
    :p

    I intentionally left OR out, because he's not here currently it seems, so he won't come begging for food.

    @Rho: Azuren is the guy who never ever shows up in Spam and is therefore not really known to me :p But he's the football/soccer guy if you wanna talk about that^^

    ... and why does it matter that I'm German? Oh well, we'll get it over with:
    Alchy/ Alchemist ist of US- American descent
    OR/ Overread is of British nationalty
    Foi/ Foinikas is a Greeeeeek Geeeek :p
    azuren- I'm not really sure about that, maybe football world ;)
    AA/Alex/ AlphaAlex is from Australia wich explains those issues he has
    Anakin, who you may or may not find here- is waaaiiiit.... umm Belgian if I remember that correctly and he's together with
    Padme who comes from... Scotland?! but moved to Belgium, right?!
    Mub/ Mubbuban - the mod!- is from Australia as well, does not have the issues AA has however
    Pyro- Britain
    Elladan- Britain
    Oddrun- Poland
    PK/ Prince Kheldar- Norway
    Turambar/ Tur- Netherlands
    (Can someone help me out if I forgot someone?!)
    Kakashi- USA
    Kenshin- USA(?)
    Duriel- USA
    Kelmourne- USA
    Loooots of guys from the US
    and I don't know who else.
