    Greetings from Brazil

    Hello everyone! Brazilian here!

    I'm an avid reader, I read pretty much everything, however fantasy and sci-fi are the genres I really, really love.

    I always liked writing. Always found easier to express myself writing. English is not my primary language, so excuse my flawed english. :P

    So far I just wrote a few small stories and a fewer articles, but I decided to give a shot at a fantasy novel.

    That said, I expect to learn a lot from you guys, and maybe have my work criticised someday. And why not help you too with your own writing?

    I usually write in portuguese but I'll try hard to translate. Probably will need help with this too.

    Well, that's it for now. Later!

    Torito,

    Welcome to AW!
    Before going into battle, Vikings would ingest Amanita muscaria. In addition to being moderately poisonous, Amanita muscaria eliminated fear causing them to be feared warriors earning Vikings the nick name berserkers.
