The Witcher Boxed Set Blood of Elves The Time of Contempt Baptism of Fire Book Description:

Soon to be a major Netflix original series! This special boxed set includes the first three novels in Andrzej Sapkowski's NYT bestselling epic fantasy saga -- the books that introduced the world to The Witcher and inspired the hit video games. For over a century, humans, dwarves, gnomes, and elves have lived together in relative peace. But times have changed, the uneasy peace is over, and now the races are fighting once again. The only good elf, it seems, is a dead elf. Geralt of Rivia, the cunning assassin known as The Witcher, has been waiting for the birth of a prophesied child. This child has the power to change the world - for good, or for evil. As the threat of war hangs over the land and the child is hunted for her extraordinary powers, it will become Geralt's responsibility to protect them all -- and the Witcher never accepts defeat. In Blood of Elves, The Time of Contempt, and Baptism of Fire, Sapkowski brings a fresh new voice to fantasy fiction, creating something wholly dark and exciting in this world of monsters and witchers.

The game has been a critical and commercial success selling more than 1.7 million units for the PC and Xbox 360 as of May 2012. The player is standing in the town square of Flotsam.The gameplay of The Witcher 2 takes a marked departure from that of its predecessor as movement is solely through the keyboard and combat moves from the rhythmic mini-game style of the original game to a more fast paced style. The left mouse button is used for fast but weak attacks and the right mouse button for slower but more damaging ones. The ability to lay traps and also to aim and throw ranged weapons was added to the combat system. Geralt also has an improved offensive and defensive arsenal, with a wide range of melee and ranged weapons, armor, bombs, traps and secondary weapons such as hatchets and shovels. Upgrades are divided into four distinct paths: Training, which includes generalized upgrades for various abilities and must be completed before the others can be started; Swordsmanship, which improves Geralt's sword fighting abilities; Alchemy, which includes perks such as reducing the negative effects of potions; and Magic, which increases the potency...

Online Multiplayer Games Book Description:

This lecture introduces fundamental principles of online multiplayer games, primarily massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), suitable for students and faculty interested both in designing games and in doing research on them. The general focus is human-centered computing, which includes many human-computer interaction issues and emphasizes social computing, but also, looks at how the design of socio-economic interactions extends our traditional notions of computer programming to cover human beings as well as machines. In addition, it demonstrates a range of social science research methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative, that could be used by students for term papers, or by their professors for publications. In addition to drawing upon a rich literature about these games, this lecture is based on thousands of hours of first-hand research experience inside many classic examples, including World of Warcraft, The Matrix Online, Anarchy Online, Tabula Rasa, Entropia Universe, Dark Age of Camelot, Age of Conan, Lord of the Rings Online, Tale in the Desert, EVE Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Pirates of the Burning Sea, and the non-game virtual world Second Life. Among the topics covered are historical-cultural origins of leading games, technical constraints that shape the experience, rolecoding and social control, player personality and motivation, relationships with avatars and characters, virtual professions and economies, social relations inside games, and the implications for the external society.

The Dragon s Eye Book Description:

Join Xephyt, a young man who finds himself forced into a conflict of terror and power; greed and deception. Xephyt is a 16-year-old boy who lives in a small village, until one day he is caught by a secret society and forced into a plot to save the country of Northstai from corruption. Goth is a dark man who scours the country for the lost Eye of Indrid. Brother of Xephyt, he claims to be the Heir of the Eye. Dragon is a mysterious figure known across the country as the reborn Indrid. He, too, claims to be the Heir of the Eye. Xephyt finds himself forced to retrieve the Eye of Indrid from somewhere within the country. What he doesn't know, is that the small conflict that he stepped into is growing into a world-wide war. Is he the real Heir of the Eye? Does Goth have something to do with all the terrorism that's been taking place? Or is the being called Dragon behind it all? No one knows, but the journey is on. And whether or not the Eye ends up in certain hands, will decide the fate of the world.
