Our story takes place in the small village of Dragon Point, Maine, population 3,283--which doesn´t include Mr. Nichols´ dog, Shakespeare, or Tati´s black cat, Whisper. You are probably wondering where the name Dragon Point came from. Well, there is a beautiful rock formation that sits high above the town, which is unmistakably in the shape of a dragon, thus the name Dragon Point. It is a picturesque location that attracts tourists from all over the world. They come to Dragon Point to enjoy the rugged coastline and the excellent cuisine and to explore the tiny shops that line Main Street. There are a number of fancy boutiques and an unusual number of antique shops. Now, this is where it gets interesting, you see. The antique shops are filled with the most unique, strange, and hard-to-find antiquities. They contain bits of the past and mysteries of the future, and their proprietors are well versed on the oddest of subjects. Yes, Dragon Point is quite an interesting place for many reasons you will soon understand. This quaint coastal village is steeped in history. The old homes and shops are built on land that was once inhabited by sea captains, Native Americans, and maybe even a pirate or two. So one could understand that there could very well be a spirit lingering here and there. And yes, you are right, there are probably even hidden passageways in the old historical homes, unexplored caves along the coast, and things that would intrigue and capture the attention and the imaginations of the Fearless Five: five children whose names sound ordinary enough but believe me, they are not ordinary children by any means, nor are their adventures. Somehow, and for some cosmic reason, their paths were meant to cross. Call it destiny or fate that brought them together at this point in time, in this small village of Dragon Point, Maine. 1.

In Town Center, players build a city in particular, the town center. They add cubes on their personal board and try to arrange them as best as possible in order to score the most victory points. Each cube represents a different type of module. Flats, shops, offices, generators, lifts, car parks, town hall can be built and stacked during the course of the game. Each module generates influence on adjacent land and on cubes directly below or above.Each round, players will gain two cubes of different colors through a non-random mechanism, build them on their game board, then eventually stack them in order to make towers according to the building rules. If the players have done their job well, some modules will be able to evolve, becoming bigger in three dimensions. The last phase is an income phase in which players gain money from the shops and parking lots if they are supplied with electricity.The bigger and higher your city is, the more victory points players will have at the end of the game, which lasts ten rounds but do not forget to provide electricity to all your flats, shops, and lifts to make them more efficient.

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe´s finest cities. Dynamic, cosmopolitan, and just a little bit decadent, Berlin is one of the fastest-changing cities in Europe. We´ll talk you through its remarkable and often troubled history and show you the vibrant, creative Berlin of today. We start at the magnificent Reichstag and talk about its war-torn history - and its exciting modern incarnation. We then direct you round to the Brandenburg Gate, where we explain not only what you´re looking at but we also put this historic symbol of Germany into context. Afterwards, we pay a visit to the new Holocaust Memorial, explain the thinking behind it - and reveal why it´s proved to be so controversial. We then wander down Unter den Linden, hear about what the name means, and take a short detour over to Checkpoint Charlie.Then we take in the impressive architecture of Bebelplatz but also talk about the most shameful episode in the square´s history - and point out the simple but moving memorial to that awful event that so many visitors miss. After the glorious Berlin cathedral, we finally we arrive at the TV Tower, and we´ll tell you why it was such an embarrassment to the Communist regime that built it. We´ll also tell you about the coolest bars, restaurants and shops, and show how the past, present, and future converge and sometimes clash in the Berlin of the 21st century.

´´The truth is I hurt people. It´s what I do. It´s all I do. It´s all I´ve ever done.´´ He lives in your community, in a nice house with a well-tended garden. He shops in your grocery store, bumping shoulders with you and apologizing with a smile. He drives beside you on the highway, politely waving you into the lane ahead of him. What you don´t know is that he has an elaborate cage built into a secret basement under his garage. And the food that he´s carefully shopping for is to feed a young woman he´s holding there against her will - one in a string of many, unaware of the fate that awaits her. This is how it´s been for a long time. It´s normal...and it works. Perfectly. Then he meets the checkout girl from the 24-hour grocery. And now the plan, the hunts, the room...the others - he doesn´t need any of them anymore. He only needs her. But just as he decides to go straight, the police start to close in. He might be able to cover his tracks except for one small problem - he still has someone trapped in his garage. Discovering his humanity couldn´t have come at a worse time. 1. Language: English.

Up until a few years ago, St. Kitts and Nevis were the type of islands that tourists delighted in discovering. Seemingly untouched by modern times, they seemed like the old Caribbean; small, intimate hotels, pristine beaches, uncluttered roads, with acres of cane fields and rainforests dominating the landscape. But now two large chain hotels - the Marriott in St. Kitts and the Four Seasons in Nevis - have broadened the options. Along with the resorts have come three golf courses, a new cruise ship port area with duty-free shops and a marine park. But you still find hints of the old laid-back islands here, especially in the delightful plantation inns on both islands. These small hotels, built around historical buildings and sugar mills, still have a colonial charm. They are furnished with Caribbean antiques and emphasize the old-fashioned standards of warm, personalized service. So it is possible to sample both the charm of the old world and the activities of the new. This is a uniquely valuable guide to these islands, excerpted from our complete guide to the Leeward Islands, with complete details on where to stay, where to eat and what to do while you are there. If you stay on St. Kitts, be sure to allow at least one day to visit Nevis, which is just a short ferry ride or a 10-minute flight away. The main port city there, Charlestown, is a study in historic preservation. Many of the skirt-and-blouse structures, where the first level is stone and the second is wood siding, are still standing and are now being used for offices and stores. The stately old churches such as St. John´s Anglican and the historic Cottle Church reinforce the sense of history. In addition, the Nevis Botanical Gardens offer a beautiful respite from the world, where you can learn about the unique plants of the Caribbean and enjoy the beauty of carefully designed gardens. 1.
