Okay, I am in shock.

Robert Jordan is one of the main reasons that I have even minor fluency in English at all, he is responsible for a lot of inspiration and the name "Ayende Rahien" is taken from his books.

I spent many enjoyable hours reading and re-reading and re-reading his books, and I have spent many pleasurable moments arguing semantics and plot twists with other members of the community.

I never knew the man, but he sure did influenced me greatly.

To steal from him, this is the only thing that I can recall of the Old Tongue of the top of my head, which seems oddly appropriate.
