My family got into this game about five years ago because we all love the books and we were impressed by the game. I came accross AA totally by chance when I was asked to join by the lovely and talented Calaris (some of you will remember the name if you've been in the Kin awhile). I wasn't really looking for a Kin at the time but what a sweet talker that Cal was. Well AA turned out to be just the ticket: friendly, helpful, family oriented, tolerent of noobs (like me), supportive of talented players (like my son) and so on and so on ... I always enjoy my time online!
