Soulcalibur 6 is in a way a remake of the original Soulcalibur released in 1998 for video arcades. The game tells the story of the legendary sword, "Soul Edge". In 16th century Spanish pirate Cervantes de Leon acquired the sword and along with it remained dormant within the ruins of a port town somewhere in Spain feeding off of souls of those, who reached his lair in search of the Soul Edge. When he gathered enough strength and was about to take over the world, two brave warriors – Sophitia from Greece and Japanese ninja Taki – slew him and shattered one of the twin Soul Edge blades. The blade was all but destroyed and by its magic brought Cervantes back to life to make him fight a German knight Siegfried, who appeared at the port town.Siegfried won, however after reaching for the Soul Edge he got consumed by its evil. The act released a pillar of light into the sky, „The Evil Seed”, which would bring the destruction of the world, and turned Siegfried into monstrous Nightmare – sword’s new host. Three years later, Europe is in turmoil. The Soul Edge-possessed Siegfried claims more souls to feed the blade. However, a group of warriors decides to take matters into their own hands and embark on a journey to stop the Soul Edge and Nightmare once and for all.SC 6 features a roster of over 20 characters, each of them sporting a different type of weapon. These include the aforementioned Sophitia, wielder of a short sword and shield, Taki who uses two wakizashi blades, and Cervantes, who fights with a combination of pirate sword and a pistol. Other characters are among others: Mitsurugi – a samurai warrior fighting with a katana. He searches for the Soul Edge in order to turn the tides of battle against foes armed with firearms Ivy – English aristocrat who holds a grudge against the Soul Edge for leading her father to his death. She uses a snake sword, which works perfectly on a long distance Raphael – a French nobleman who seeks the power of the Soul Edge to protect Amy, his ward. He fights with a rapier and is among the fastest characters in the game Voldo – a fearsome contortionist armed with a pair of katars. He was the bodyguard of Vercci, dangerous weapon seller from Italy and the guardian of his master’s vast treasure. He has been searching for the Soul Edge for three years prior to the beginning of the game’s storyline. Astaroth – an axe-wielding golem, was created by a cult of Ares with one purpose – finding the Soul Edge. Grøh – a brand new fighter in the Soul Calibur series roster, Grøh is a member of the mysterious Aval Organization, the purpose of which is to locate and destroy the cursed sword. He wields a double edged saber, which he can separate into two. Azwel – also a new character in a series, a sage, well versed in many disciplines of science. His knowledge was so cast that the Aval Organization welcomed him as one of its leaders, despite his apparent lack of loyalty towards their cause. His weapon, Palindrome, is a pair of gauntlets. Each of them carries a shard of both Soul Edge and its pure counterpart, Soul Calibur. He uses them both to summon a variety of other weapons.Guest characters Geralt of Rivia – the Witcher, hunter of monsters. He carries two longswords and uses them with deadly precision.

Set in Utah during the spring and summer of 1871, Riders of the Purple Sage, by Zane Grey, is considered a classic of the Western genre. Yet it's more than a Western story. At its heart it's a story of redemption and the discovery, then loss, of paradise as two couples tread a shared path through tragedy to find love. Jane Withersteen and her friend, Venters, find themselves at odds with the local Mormon church leaders, who covet her vast and valuable property and, at the same time, despise her deep friendship with Venters, a Gentile. A stranger, Lassiter, enters their lives while searching for his long-lost sister and becomes Jane's protector and Venters' mentor. Soon afterward, Venters is thrust together with a girl named Bess, and the four of them discover how their lives have been intertwined for years. Riders of the Purple Sage has been adapted for feature films five times. Grey's hero, Lassiter, is considered one of the first antiheroes and the foundation for late Western figures including Shane, Zorro, and the character Chris in The Magnificent Seven. Zane Grey published a sequel in 1915, The Rainbow Trail, about the unfolding of life for Jane and Lassiter. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Danko.

You’re not alone.Hollow words for any tender soul smiling through the day while hiding a deep sense of loneliness.For such a soul - like Dawn Downey - the friendliest encounter is an exercise in alienation. In her essay titled "A Traveler's Tale", she describes a stroll through her neighborhood.“A dust mop of a puppy bounded toward me, her brush tail slicing the air with hello come play and a young woman on the other end of her leash. Straggling behind them was a toddler pushing an umbrella stroller. I knew they lived in the blue house on the corner...in their front yard, a stand of coreopsis whose yellow starbursts surprised me every summer.“The little girl skipped along in my blind spot, peppering me with questions and her own answers. I fantasized a lifelong friendship between us, taught her to read, gave her sage advice after a teenage spat with her boyfriend.“I wanted to ask the young woman’s name, but they hurried past, toward their blue house on the corner, dust mop’s yap yap yap fading."Through the stories in Searching for My Heart, Downey investigates why she feels left out, returning to themes of alienation, shame, and the self-awareness that leads to love. Downey is a seeker on a quest for closeness. Every step in her search is a homecoming, where she discovers connection begins with herself. An audiobook for anyone with a desire to belong. 1.
