    American Here

    Instead of having the usual drawn-out introduction I thought I would start my skadi membership with a short story. In high school our english teacher made us write a paper on Beowulf and what made him a hero. Being a teenager more focused on hockey and girls I wasn't interested in the story. Anyways I cheated on the paper, I copied from an online essay site. The teacher somehow caught on to my cheating and failed me. I Beowulf was the opposite of an anti-social, which I was at the time, I thought it was an utterly brainless story.

    Anyways the point of the story, I guess, is that it's weird how things work out, maybe it was fate, maybe it was a coinsendence, who knows? Either way I think it's ironic that I hated the most famous Pre-Christian Germanic tale and ended up, two years later, on this forum.

    To end my first post I'd thought I would share some of my interests. I listen to mainly metal, German Thrash, and Black Metal mostly. I enjoy history in general, my favorite era is WWII. I recently read the Saxon Tales by Bernard Cornwell, and I'm trying to learn more about the Viking era. I'm most fascinated with Germans however, being part Bavarian myself. I'm currently taking a first year German course. That's about all I have to say, hope it wasn't to long or painful of an introduction.

    Welcome.

    I haven't read that series of books. Could you possibly describe the storyline for me?
    I love Bernard Cornwell, whether it be Sharpe or the Arthur series he brought out about ten years ago. http://www.bernardcornwell.net/index...e=1&seriesid=4

    i have been a member since 2003 and have not been on here for 4 years. I'm activating my membership again in the hopes that all the old bigoted people have left and the forum is now filled with people whom are not socially inept, or feel the need to persecute others for their views.
    Heres to another 4 years!

    I'm not sure how old you are but it's a pretty easy read. It's basically historical fiction written like a sword and sorcery novel. The series is about Alfred and his Saxon Kingdom, Danish Vikings, Norse Vikings (later), a scattering of Irish and Welsh warriors, Growing up in Denmark during that time, Christianity, Paganism, and the atrocities commited by both sides.

    Hey. Bernard Cornwell is great, yeah. I've read the Sharpe series and the Arthur books. All good. Will have to check out the Saxon Tales.
