Eurofly Blind plane Simulater.

Now for the second game i play. this game is called alter aeon. It is a rpg mud. A mud is a text bassed game. That means their is no pictures. Only words and you have to read to know what going around you in the game. Also this game is free. Learn more about Alter Aeon and come play it at

I also like the out doors. I row. I work at a grocery store throwing things in bags. oops... I mean i sack the groceries. Well, that's all for now. come find me on alter aeon if you want to talk or i'll be in the chat.

Welcome to NarniaWeb, Matthew/GreatLionAslan (nice username)! :-h You're sure in the right place, given that you're obsessed with Narnia. :D
And that's great you have found a place (alter aeon) that has such helpful support.
How do you like throwing things in bags at the grocery store? ;)) I chuckled at your humorous description. Seriously, I hope it's a positive environment and an encouraging atmosphere.

A hearty welcome to you, GreatLionAslan! It's great to have you here. :-h

It's so neat that you play a blind flight simulator! My brother is into flight simulators, but I have never heard of Eurofly before. Very cool!

If you have any questions about the forum, just ask. I hope you enjoy exploring all of the discussions! :)

Hello everyone,

I'm Antoine, 25, from Belgium, and I've recently dived back into the Narnia fandom ; I used to really love it when I was a teenager, then sort of forgot about it, but a couple weeks ago I was at my parents' house and found my Narnia books and... well, let's say that I disappeared for 2 days which I spend reading all of the 7 books in a row.

So, I'd like to discuss the stories and their universe with you guys, as back then I didn't know anyone else that liked the Chronicles of Narnia and hadn't anyone to talk about it.

Apart from that (and other fantasy book series such as William Nicholson's Wind of Fire trilogy and Erik L'Homme's Le Livre des Etoiles trilogy... but I don't think the latter has been translated in English), I love travels, strategy wargames (both video and tabletop), and making models (both tabletop game miniatures and floating sailboats).

I hope we'll have lots of great things to talk about, see you soon on the forum!

Welcome to NarniaWeb, SSBN_Dawn_Treader! :-h Your username is neat; I like trying to imagine what the Dawn Treader would look like if it were a nuclear-powered submarine. ;)) It's awesome to hear that you've rediscovered the Narnia books, and found this community, too! We're glad to have you here.

Looks like you've already discovered a lot of the discussion threads here on the forum, but if you like podcasts, you should also check out Talking Beasts! It's NarniaWeb's podcast and I bet you'd enjoy the book commentary episodes; Glumpuddle and Rilian are currently going through The Horse and His Boy.

Let us know if you have any questions about anything! :)

1. Name (please avoid your real full name): Monty Jose or just call me Monty
2. King or Queen of Narnia (guy or girl): King
3. Family (single/married/kids): Single
4. Occupation: Coffee House shift lead
5. How you learned about NarniaWeb: Stumbled across it sometime around the promotion of Prince Caspian, either by finding the podcast on iTunes or a trailer linked here. I can't remember which XD
6. How old were you when you first read the Chronicles: I started really young, but decided to wait because Jadis freaked me out in the Magician's Nephew. So somewhere around 10.
7. How many times have you read the Chronicles: at least 7 times each. That's a pretty appropriate number I think.
8. Favorite of the Chronicles: Definitely The Magician's Nephew.
9. Hobbies and/or interesting things about you: Artist, writer, and I love a good laugh.

I've followed the podcast for years. I thought about joining NarniaWeb for years. Now that Narnia is coming to Netflix, I decided to commit XD after years of limbo following VDT, there will be some real filmmaking discussion! :ymapplause:

So glad you have made the decision to join the forum, Monty! :D I quite chuckled at your "Jadis freaked me out in TMN" line, because I am certain you are not the only one who felt this way. ;)) She's scary stuff for a wee one!

Enjoy browsing and posting around the forum!

Welcome to NarniaWeb, Jose Monty! :-h Glad you decided to join us after longtime lurking... as a former longtime lurker, finally signing up for the forum is a decision I've never regretted! ;)) And it looks like it's a good time to be a fan of The Magician's Nephew, since there's a decent chance that Netflix will kick off its Narnia projects with that story. :D

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Have fun exploring all of the discussions! :)

Thanks, Rose-Tree! I never thought of myself as a lurker, but I think that’s a fair conclusion XD

Hi, everyone. It's Warrior 4 Jesus. I don't know if anyone remembers me, but I was a member here for many years. I've been away for awhile, though. Maybe, 5 years. I'm not sure. I recently got sucked into listening to the Talking Beasts podcast. It's good to be back.
Currently watching:
