For many of DM's members, the social community is at the heart of Dragonmount. It's where we come to let loose, enjoy ourselves, whether it's in a good debate or a mafia game or just hanging out. It's where our members have made friends they talk to when things go wrong - even if they've never seen each other in person. Some of us have met our significant others on DM; others have met and married.

So don't hesitate to dip your toe into the waters. Trust us - you'll enjoy it.

With that out of the way, here's what you'll find. The Social Community section on Dragonmount has two types of boards: General, non-membership boards, for discussion of specific topics, and Social Groups - organized gatherings of people who have some sort of ranking structure that is loosely based on the Wheel of Time series. Each Social Group has their own "specialty", or theme. There is no limit on how many groups you can join, and each group has their own separate rules you are obligated to follow. Below is a very brief summary of the general boards and each Social Group. For more information about the Social Groups, please contact the Group Leaders or drop by and say hello.

1) General Boards
2) Social Groups

General Boards

General Discussion

A place for discussion of real life, fantasy other than the Wheel of Time, and everything in between. It's Dragonmount's Town Square, and you'll find book reviews, threads about American Idol, questions about people's user names and almost anything else on this board


General Discussion has the following three child boards:

--Fiddlesticks

Spam, Spam, Spam!


--Debates and Discussions

The infamous D&D board... some say you need a Kevlar vest to enter... You will find every topic under the sun comes under fire here. Golden rule: be polite!! If someone is getting obnoxious, just ignore them or PM a Moderator, don't get yourself banned from the forum by retaliating. If you don't like other people questioning your point of view, ignore this board.


--DM Mafia Games

This forum is where the majority of organized games, such as mafia, are played on DM. Other games, such as Pictophone, are also played here, but mafia reigns supreme.




Entertainment Discussion

DM’s home for Movie, TV, Gaming, and Sports discussions. The Entertainment boards host an array of topics ranging from upcoming movie news, current TV shows, reviews of current movies, popular video games, a wide variety of sports, and much, much more. Our boards also have up to date movie trailers and movie/TV shows of the month discussions. Please feel free to drop in and participate.

Black Tower (Social Group)

Greetings, and welcome to the insanity that is The Black Tower!

The Black Tower is the gaming community of Dragonmount. Where we engage in One Power Fights for which we have designed a system which involves a set of Fight Rollers, which are provided courtesy of the Staff, for your use in burninating your fellow members! We also have discussions on new games, books, movies and other items and are currently developing our own MMORPG, so all game programmers are welcome in the hope we can make a kick @ss game.

If you like the sound of all that, then you must have come to the right place. So stop by our boards, post around and feel the place out. Meet the other Madmen of the Black Tower and earn yourself some points so that you can increase your skill in the One Power and your Rank within the Tower. Have fun. You'll find that we are a pretty casual bunch of people around here. Savage, yes. Insane, yes. We just have a twisted sense of humor is all... (We blame the Taint for that!)

"Please Beware of Random Stabbings and Beatings."
-Sincerely, The Staff


The Kin (Social Group)

The Kin’s goal is to accept members from all associations and walks of life, whether they are able to “channel” or not. We were born from the imagination of a few members of other Groups who had found that they didn’t quite “fit” into life at our home Group. Here at the Kin, we’ve created a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere where we have points and raisings, but our focus is mostly on each other, not on status.

We have monthly projects that include a monthly exchange, an information/connecting thread at DM and an assortment of other fun things. Our interests cover everything that our members are interested in. Our focus is on each other; strengthening the bonds of “Kinship” we’ve created at DM and enjoying each other’s company. Our activities and conversations, chat nights and very personal raisings all work towards that goal.


Ogier (Social Group)

Welcome to the Stedding fellow treebrothers and treesisters!

The Treebrothers and Treesisters of the Ogier welcome you to our Steddings. Kick back and relax with a full stein and a pipe of the finest tabac around. We have a variety of activities centered around our theme of Books and History. Join us and take part as a Scholar, Brewer, Builder, or defend the Stedding as a member of the feared Deathwatch Guard. Come be a part of our close knit family, and take a break from the longing.

Shayol Ghul (Social Group)

New Members post here: http://www.dragonmou...rs-report-here/ We’ll hook you up with a nice informative pm that will give you some ideas of where to start.

Additional information about our Group: http://forums.dragon...ic,31874.0.html

Shayol Ghul is an activity based Social Group heavily focused on humor that uses points to move up through the ranks. We are divided into three Factions: Black Ajah, Shadowspawn, and Dreadlords. Each Faction adheres to a different type of evil. We enjoy invading each other, being competitive, and posting. We are a rough bunch of people, so enter our lair with an open mind and a lot of patience. We are stark, opinionated, fun loving, rowdy individuals who while on the outside seem gruff and apathetic, are very loyal to one another, and to Shayol Ghul. Oh yeah, and we like to post *coughspamcough*. A lot. So, if you enjoy playing games, rough housing, and much randomness, then you’ll feel right at home here! *stabs* Welcome to SG!


The White Tower & Warders (Social Group)

The term "Aes Sedai" means "Servants of All" in the Old Tongue. The White Tower and Warders Social Group has used the philosophy of Servants of All to create a social setting based on the hierarchy, purpose and set-up of the White Tower and Warders in the WoT series. This inspires the way in which we interact and some of the activities which we organize, although we are a social community and not a role playing group.

We offer people of varying common interests - related to the books or otherwise - a chance to find their niche with like minded people in one of the Ajahs or the Warders guild. Whether you become a Warder or an Aes Sedai (here males can be Aes Sedai and females can be Warders), at the White Tower and Warders Social Group, you can live out that philosophy and have fun doing it!

You will start your journey at the White Tower and Warders as an Initiate. After completing a class (see more later) you may pick your path, ie either Warder Path or Aes Sedai Path.

In the Warder's Guild, you will start as an Algai, then progress to Manshima and finally to Der'Manshima. As a member of the Warder's Guild, you can choose to join one of three disciplines of like-minded brothers and sisters in battle.

You may instead choose the path of Aes Sedai. You will start as Novice, then progress to Accepted and finally to Aes Sedai.

When you have reached the rank of Accepted/Manshima, you may state your intent to join the Ajah or Discipline of your choice. Please be aware, however, that MOST of the Ajahs/Disciplines have an application process and must ACCEPT you as an Aspirant before you can declare yourself. Familiarize yourself with these processes in advance and you'll help yourself out a ton. :)

How will YOU choose to serve?


Wolfkin (Social Group)

The Wolfkin is the nature community of Dragonmount. Whether it is taking a walk down the trails of your nearest natural park, or sitting on your front porch watching the sunrise, we encourage our members to appreciate what is out there. We ask them share what joys they have found with the community so others might see and enjoy what other parts of the world have to offer. Through pictures and park reviews we share our love for the natural world in its wild state…. OK enough official stuff!

We are also the party Group of Dragonmount and if you love a good party come to the Wolfkin. You will have a blast and fit right in. Well, hope you stop by to see us. I’m sure you will fall in love and never ever want to leave.

Well I guess that's all there is to say. Do stop by and have some TQ and a bowl of chili. I’ll see you in the Stedding.
