    Welcome Beldaran, you say you like Eddings - I say the name might have been a bit of a giveaway there! :D I can just about recommend the Elenium /Tamuli - there was plenty of 'he's doing the same things again' but it was soon enough after the first series for me not to mind. It was when he did it again, and then again, that it got a bit annoying. Ele/ Tam is just a bit more political than the Bel/Mal, I find...

    Yeah I like Orcs but the name Orcsgather, is just chosen because I did not know a good fantasy name lol.

    I thought it was an interesting name on this forum. At least it has something to do with Fantasy. First thing I thought of by the way
    where Orcs in Lord of the rings. You can either gather Orcs to slaughter them, or you could gather them for war xd.

    I'm getting on good, I find it easy readable. Only thing is that because I have seen the TV show season 1 and 2,
    the first 2 books I will know what is going to happen. I was thinking before I Bought the first book, to just read from book 3.

    But I quite like it to begin at the beginning with reading as well :D

    The first person present don't know if that is what it is. Instead of Chapters you have names of the characters for each chapter.
    So instead it will say something like, Road To Winterfell IV, it is Eddard Stark, or Sansa, or some other character in the chapter name.

    And you'll notice not everything is the same as in the tv show :). Especially A clash of kings and season 2 differ from each other. I like the books more than the show, they're much more exciting.

    A lot of chatter. heh

    I started with Eragon at 9, and had never read a book longer than 20 pages before that. Then I read quite a few books, and LotR at 11. Now I cannot be removed from a book for long.

    And Eustace is back! I knew all this talk of Eddings would draw him here. Nice new avatar BTW.

    @Beldaran: as to your beauty; that needs to be proven (although I've never seen Beldaran).

    Do you play those games ?

    I really like the art style of World Of Warcraft used to play it allot.
    and Warhammer played it as well but not so much as WoW lol.
    Im not really a good RTS gamer.
    Maybe I will play WoW again when Mist Of Pandaria is coming out.

    Cheers Druid, yes the Eddings convos always draw me out. As to the new avatar, well, I reckoned it was a bit daft having an avatar that wasn't for the character who I'd named myself after, so I made a change. As usual, it's paint, cause I haven;t the patience to learn how to use anything else! :D Orcsgather, I hope you appreciate this, I'm going checking something for you here in the cupboard...

    ...which is upstairs, I hope you appreciate this...

    OK... have you perhaps tried the book 'Orcs' by Stan Nicholls? It might be right up your street, and also I think you might have just inspired me to read it at last...

    Whoever told me that was wrong anyway, a friend got the book and showed me and it's written normally in past tense. It means using words like 'was' and 'had' for past tense or 'is' and 'has' for present tense, like a screenplay.

    I'm looking forward to reading it.

    Omg, you seriously made your avatar in paint? It looks very good. When I try making something in paint it looks like I'm 5 years old again...

    @ druid: as to my beauty, I can't prove that haha. some may find me beautiful, but others won't right? :)
