Great says Rick - for which team? The mighty Panthers of Parma, Italy. Overnight, he became a national laughing stock and, of course, was immediately dropped by the Browns and shunned by all other teams. Rick Dockery was the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. Yes, Italians do play American football, to one degree or another, and the Parma Panthers desperately want a player from the home of American footballat their helm. So Rick reluctantly agrees to play for the Panthers - at least until a better offer comes along - and heads off to Italy. With a 17-point lead and just minutes to go, Rick provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. In the deciding game at the climax of the season, to the surprise and dismay of virtually everyone, Rick actually got into the game. Against enormous odds, Arnie finally locates just such a team and informs Rick that, miraculously, he can in fact now be a starting quarterback. He knows nothing about Parma (not even where it is), has never been to Europe, and doesn' t speak or understand a word of Italian. To say that Italy - the land of opera, fine wines, extremely small cars, romance and football americano - holds a few surprises for Rick Dockery would be something of an understatement. But all Rick knows is football, and he insists that his agent, Arnie, finds a team that needs him.

|Call of Cthulhu (Role-Playing Game) Книга по Требованию Frederic P. M. |
Call of Cthulhu is a horror fiction role-playing game based on H. P. Lovecraft' s story of the same name and the associated Cthulhu Mythos. The game, often abbreviated as CoC, is published by Chaosium. The setting of Call of Cthulhu is a darker version of our world, based on H. P. Lovecraft' s observation (from his short essay, Supernatural Horror in Literature) that "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. " There are three primary eras of the original (BRP) game: the 1920s, the setting of many of Lovecraft' s stories; the 1890s Gaslight supplements, a blend of occult and Holmesian mystery and mostly set in England; and modern conspiracy (Cthulhu Now). Recent additions include 1000 AD (Cthulhu: Dark Ages), 23rd Century (Cthulhu Rising) and Roman times (Cthulhu Invictus). The protagonists may also travel to places that are not of this earth, represented in the Dreamlands (which can be accessed through dreams as well as being physically connected to the earth), as well as travel to other planets or the voids of space. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.

But what if the greatest threat to Valkyrie is just a little closer to home! ? Just when you think you' ve saved the world! "You will kill her? " the Torment asked. Skulduggery sagged. "Yes. " He hesitated, then took his gun from his jacket. "I' m sorry, Valkyrie," he said softly. "Don' t talk to me," Valkyrie said. "Just do what you have to do. " Valkyrie parted her tunic, and Skulduggery pointed the gun at the vest beneath. "Please forgive me," Skulduggery said, then aimed the gun at the girl and pulled the trigger. With Serpine dead, the world is safe once more. At least, that' s what Valkyrie and Skulduggery think, until the notorious Baron Vengeous makes a bloody escape from prison, and dead bodies and vampires start showing up all over Ireland.
