Fellow Captains,The lessons we´ve learned on the road from Phantom League to Pilot Academy:* Deeper immersion to the story and world* Tactics to the battle system* Strategies for Player vs Player play* And more of everything was pretty much the order from overwhelming majority of Captains of the Phantom League.Pilot Academy delivers all of that, but in a package that you can use as a whole or cherry pick the parts you like.The new Galactic Balance and Surface Missions offer two new ways to gain Recognition, providing wider in game career variations and deeper immersion in the world. A tactical battle system allows for battles with a greatly reduced luck factor. A tactic well implemented allows a weak foe to fight any enemy. This, combined with Escape rules that actually work toward making Escape a possible, even if costly, option to all ships creates a unique battle system.For the bloodthirsty, you´ll love the new blockading rules, which were included as ´optional´ earlier on and had been incomplete. No more waiting for the ducks to fly to you, being a pirate has never been this good. We have also included game aids we and some of our players have deemed helpful.With Pilot Academy, Phantom League can finally live up to its legacy and become the ´Elite´ board game we aimed to create some years back. It took a lot of work and help from you, we are indebted. Fly with grace and courage.Over and out
Kevin Engle has been entertaining people for 10 years with his ´´Engle’s Angle” column and its humorous look at our everyday lives. In The Best of Engle’s Angle, a collection of more than 100 favorites, you’ll know why he doesn’t want to shake hands with people in church. Plus, meet a dentist who does play-by-play commentary while checking your teeth, and watch out for office coworkers when there’s free food. Do you enjoy choosing between 47 different types of toothpaste on store shelves or trying to find that one particular movie in those gigantic five-dollar-DVD bins? Neither does he. Ever had to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom but didn’t want to? And can you keep up with that annoying neighbor who’s always a few steps ahead of you? Good luck. Is glitter really necessary? Do you like hearing those same 10 holiday songs over and over again? And what’s more festive than pink pigs at Christmas? Even when the subject is serious, like the passing of his father, you’ll smile when you hear about the lessons Dad taught him. The Best of Engle’s Angle is a snapshot of what makes life interesting. And funny. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Karl Orenstein. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/147890/bk_acx0_147890_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

´´An unusual and beautiful book,” the first novel by the bestselling author of A Wrinkle in Time explores the life of a young artist (Los Angeles Times). At only ten years old, Katherine Forrester has already experienced her fair share of upheaval. It has been three years since she last saw her mother, a concert pianist whose career was cut short by a terrible accident. After a brief reunion, tragedy strikes once more, forcing Katherine from the familiarity of New York City to a foreign Swiss boarding school. Far from home, she struggles with the challenges of growing up. Stifled by her daily routine and the pettiness of her classmates, Katherine’s piano lessons with a gifted young teacher provide an anchor in the storm. After graduation, she follows in her mother’s footsteps, pursuing a career as a pianist in Greenwich Village. There, she must learn to reconcile her blossoming relationship with her fiancé with the one consistent and dominant force in her life: music. Inspired by the author’s time living among artists, The Small Rain follows Katherine’s journey from a distraught girl to an exuberant and talented woman with the breadth and poignancy that defines Madeleine L’Engle’s signature style. 1.
