Everyone believed that dragons, huge legendary beasts that once terrorized the whole land, are long gone and the people of Skyrim can feel safe.

There are ten different races that we can choose from, each of them with its individual features and traits. The developers have prepared a lot of options concerning character creation – players can tweak a vast selection of appearance features. After completing that, the player can totally ignore the main storyline and star his very own adventure.Skyrim allows you to do whatever you want, to go wherever you want and to be whoever you want! There is no restricted class system in the game. The skills of your character will increase with your progress. The skill system has been completely re-designed. There are eighteen different skill trees in the game, each of them with unique abilities. The more you use specific kind of magic or weapon, the more powerful you become. For example, if you always wanted to play a heavily armored, unstoppable warrior, find yourself a two-handed axe and just start using it.Your capability of using the weapon will slightly increase with each hit, which will result in leveling up Two-handed Weapons skill tree. Upon leveling up, you will have a chance to increase one of three basic statistics – Mana, Stamina, or Health. As mentioned before,The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim gives you total freedom – if you decide that you got bored with heavy warrior and now you would like to try a more subtle approach, just find yourself adequate equipment and start using it! If you can’t decide what kind of character you want to play, you can even become warrior/hunter/rogue/mage, etc. That is how real freedom looks like! Speaking of which – almost from the beginning of your adventure, you can go wherever you want.Skyrim for PCgives us a huge, alive world that we can explore freely. There are five, main cities in the game, very different from one another. The game’s world is very diversified. During exploration, players will many different kinds of environments like forests, huge plains, and snowy mountains.

Rule #1: Stay the Udlast away from the Dragons. Rule #2: Defy the Council or die trying.WHERE DOES IT END? Over a generation ago, the Council ordered the systematic extermination of the magic wielding, Runic Race. In the face of the damning orders, a few Dragonics refused to participate and instead demanded justice. But their call to defiance came too late - no Runics survived. Now, those against the Council's oppressive reign have long since been outcast to the fringes of society - their numbers and determination dwindling. Alaister Paine, Commander of the Rogue Dragonics, leads the Resistance with little hope of success, until he deciphers one of his predecessor's logs. Within the cryptic text, Alaister reveals that one Runic - a girl of untold power - was hidden from the Council's grasp. Find the girl, and the Rogues will finally be able to enact a long lost Prophecy to bring freedom back to Solera. Trouble is... they are not the only ones searching for the last Soleran Runic.Praise about Defiance: Dragonics & Runics Part I: "I haven't felt this way since I first read Edgar Rice Burroughs..."For more information on Defiance: Dragonics & Runics Part I and the entire Dragonics & Runics Series, be sure to visit the official website at www.defythecouncil.com 1.

The epic story of this hero’s battle against dragons, monsters, and their mothers is particularly suited to being recorded as an audiobook given that for the first 300 years of its existence it was only ever spoken. The first known (and indeed the only surviving manuscript) of the poem was written in AD 1,000. It survived Henry VIII’s attempts to destroy it (as a religious artifact) and a catastrophic fire that destroyed many other historical British documents - the marks of the fire are still visible on the manuscript, now safely housed in the British Museum. But the poem and indeed its mythical original tale date back to the eighth or ninth century and before that to the mythologies of Scandaniavia. It is because this poem is in itself an adaptation of ancient sagas that we have allowed ourselves the only abridgement or adaptation on the website! Julian Glover’s version takes the poem back to its origins as a spoken tale. He has taken the essence of the poem and, with a scholarly eye to the British Museum’s manuscript, created a truly bardic performance. Beowulf’s battles against Grendel (the monster who takes you in your sleep) and the original lethal female, his mother, who comes to avenge her son’s killing, are faithfully transformed from their singed original to a roaring reality. 1.
