Game One Sprecher VideoIngo improvisiert: Spontane Trailer-Vertonung vom Game-Two-Sprecher
But from the moment that he logs in, Marcus finds himself separated from his friends and thrown into a remote village under attack by a horde of goblins.
Forced into battle, Marcus rallies the beleaguered villagers and, with their help, manages to drive off the invading creatures. With the village in ruins and their supplies spoiled, the villagers turn to Marcus for help in rebuilding the village.
After being betrayed and cursed by an extremely rare spell, Oren, a powerful and influential player, finds himself as a first-level goblin!
Without even a fraction of his previous power, he vows to pull through and have revenge on those who betrayed him. But first, he must figure out how to survive long enough playing what is basically a low-level fodder monster!
Tricked into a world of banished gods, demons, goblins, sprites and magic, Richter must learn to meet the perils of The Land and begin to forge his own kingdom.
Can Richter forge allegiances to survive this harsh and unforgiving world or will he fall to the dark denizens of this ancient and unforgiving realm?
The decision to start a new life is never an easy one, but for Joe the transition was far from figurative. In fact, if the wrong people gained knowledge of what he was capable of, assassins would appear in droves.
Thrust into an unknown, unwanted situation, most would feel panic, fear anger, and fall into chaos. Erik and Rugrat are not immune to those feelings, but they have stepped into chaos so many times, it is simply a different challenge.
Two weeks ago, Erik lost his legs and his arm. Today he got a message. One may choose to ascend the Ten Realms, thereupon making a request to the Gods of the Realms.
Only those who are Level 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, and 90 may ascend to the next realm. Fortune favors the strong!
At long last, an extraterrestrial civilization reached out and made the First Contact. However, no one on Earth took their communique for the genuine article.
In a similar vein, very few people appreciated just how little time our new suzerains had promised to keep our planet safe. Regardless, the end of their message showed humankind how to access a mysterious game.
The objective of this game is unclear. No one can say where its servers are located, and its inner workings are beyond comprehension.
Well, you know what they say. The game has become so popular that players now choose to spend months online without returning home. In Barliona, anything goes: You can assault fellow players, level up, become a mythical hero, a wizard, or a legendary thief.
For those who reside in the outer regions of Aleria, the day of bestowal is what determines their destiny. It is the holy day of the Goddess.
The day that allows those of age to step forward and receive their blessing, to embark on the path that she has chosen for them. To receive their Classification, which dictates their strength and ability.
For those people, the holy day of bestowal represents fate itself. For Dante, it represents salvation.
Would you be prepared to work for free? How would you like to bust your hump for a large corporation plus hours a week without a wage or a single day off for the vague promise of some mysterious perks in the distant future?
Especially considering that your in-game partner is someone really special to you - and this person already lives a virtual life?
All John wanted to do was get away for his life in Kluane National Park for a weekend. Hike, camp, and chill. Instead, the world comes to an end in a series of blue boxes, animals start evolving, and monsters start spawning.
Now, he has to survive the apocalypse, get back to civilization, and not lose his mind. Life in the North is book one of the System Apocalypse, a litRPG apocalypse series that combines modern day life, science fiction, and fantasy elements along with game mechanics.
But when Devon logs in, her expectations shatter like an ice golem hit with a sonic blast. The problem with this book is everything could have been solved by simply asking the aliens how they reproduce from the start instead of assuming they reproduce like humans do.
That kind of story almost always annoys the beejeesus out of me. It drives me nuts. I just seems like this one simple little thing would have changed everything.
So, if you have some secret account, your husband gets to share it suddenly? This makes no sense. I have got to get these OSC books out of my house.
Edit-I am sorry, but no real actual scientist would ever, ever encounter aliens and assume they reproduced the same way humans do!
This is just so deeply dippy. And you get 2 people in which this happens to. High school when I read Seventh Son for the first time.
Also, the romance between Ender and Novinhua is not believable. I do find her whole part very satisfying and I hate when Ender turns her off and she becomes lost.
He nags and lectures. He tells when he should show you. He has no subtlety. His bad guys are too evil and his good guys are too good.
Especially if you are keen on gay rights. That serious has fantastic character development, interesting beings going from being human to something else dealing with that.
View all 26 comments. What makes this book very special are the existential and philosophical issues raised by this book. I also love the Pequeninos piggies alien species and their highly unusual stages of growth.
Their culture is very alien and this leads to a terrible misunderstanding and a couple of tragic human deaths, that said, there are some recognizable human characteristic in their behavior.
Characterization has always been a particular strength of Orson Scott Card and this is very much a character-centric book, though the sf element, the sense of wonder and immersion is very strong.
The character of Andrew Wiggin Ender is very different from the previous novel he has grown up, grown old and attained a lot of wisdom.
Some of the alien piggies characters such as Rooter and Human are as vivid as the human ones. For me this book has a lot more emotional resonance than its predecessor as I can identify with some of the problems the characters go through.
This book epitomizes all that I look for in a perfect sf novel. View all 5 comments. Hokey space soap opera. Speaker for the Dead: Synop Speaker for the Dead: Synopsis Speaker for the Dead revolves around a dysfunctional family of xenobiologists and xenologers, and features an adult Ender Wiggin now know as Andrew Wiggin, Speaker for the Dead who is only in his mids thanks to the time relativity effects of interstellar flight.
On Lusitania, a new alien species has been discovered, the pequeninos or piggies, as they are commonly known , the only other alien race to be encountered since the buggers were exterminated by Ender Wiggin, the Xenocide.
So now the Hundred Worlds and Starways Congress are much more cautious about alien contact, and restrict all contact with the piggies to just the handful of xenobiologists and xenologers.
The story involves the emotional trials of the Ribeira family, which has been struck with a series of tragedies tied to interactions with the piggies, as well as contact with a deadly plague called the Descolada which scrambles DNA in unexpected and fatal ways.
Despite her parents finding a way to prevent the Descolada from harming humans, the main character Novinha loses her parents to the plague.
Novinha, who considers Pipo a father figure and Libo as her lover, is emotionally devastated and retreats further from the community of Lusitania.
It is the death of Marcao, along with the earlier deaths of Pipo and Libo, that triggers the main events of the story. Andrew Wiggin answers a call for a Speaker for the Dead sent initially by Novinha to speak the death of Pipo , but later requests are also made by her eldest son Miro to speak the death of Libo and her eldest daughter Ela to speak the death of Marcao after Andrew has already begun his journey.
When he arrives, it becomes clear that Novinha regrets her request which cannot be cancelled , and that the family is in disarray due to the abuse of Novinha by her husband Ribeiro, and her refusal to reveal what information about the Descolada lead to the deaths of Pipo and Libo.
It takes only a week of sleuthing and infiltration of the family by the incredibly perceptive Speaker for the Dead to unearth layer after layer of secrets and emotional pain buried in the Ribeiro family, and despite the resistance of various family members, he finally undertakes to reveal the true story behind Pipo, Libo, Novinha, and Marcao, and this cathartic Speaking before the Lusitania community provides one of the key moments of the book.
There is also a subplot about Starways Congress finding out about illegal contact with the piggies and attempting to shut down the colony which it views as being in rebellion and its ansible communications network, along with an artificial intelligence named Jane that has formed a connection with Ender Wiggin over the 3, years since the genocide.
However, I found this subplot quite underdeveloped and not really critical to the plot. Most likely it was added to lay the groundwork for the following two sequels, Xenocide and Children of the Mind, which are widely regarded as inferior to the first two books.
Finally, the Hive Queen also features as part of the redemption of Andrew Wiggin, as he seeks to find a new home for her race to atone for his unwitting act of Xenocide 3, years earlier.
Unfortunately, it is very clear that the book is mainly an opportunity for him to espouse his various views about morality, guilt, lies, and redemption via revealing of the truth, no matter how painful.
It would be a much better book. This book picks up planetary years after the first one. Yup, Ender is 35 but humanity has spread over planets and years, making his deeds legend.
Due to how most people regard him, Ender no longer exists. Instead, there is Andrew Wiggin or The Speaker for the Dead there are a whole guild of Speakers now and they are regarded as a form of priest.
We begin by living on a colony world where another alien species has been discovered some time ago so the planet gets cordoned off. The one settlement, which had already been there when the aliens were found, is allowed to stay in place but no other settlements may be erected.
Plus, only one scientist is allowed to study the aliens well, him and his apprentice. But one day things go horribly wrong, there is death amongst the humans and people get frightened once more.
As in the first book, here too, the author has some insightful comments about human society. Such as the fact that rejected males like to call females stupid and weak out of their frustration over being rejected.
However, the author also gets things wrong once again. Because Portuguese is supposedly just like Spanish.
About as much as German is the same as Russian. Anyway, what probably annoys me so much is how the author tries to give one the impression of being an everyday guy while also trying to lift himself up over others.
As pretentious and pompous as his characters who think they know everything there is to know about an alien species just through empathy and who are constantly wrecked with guilt but only carry the weight of the world on their shoulders so they can make themselves more important in their display of what they are willing to do for redemption.
I get that Ender regrets his part in the xenocide and it commends his character. However, he was a tool and a tool only. A necessary one, but still just a tool.
The xeno-biologist who was the first casualty was a scientist, a human with his own brain and his own decisions and he had studied the alien race before the afore-mentioned drama queen was old enough to know left from right.
His curiosity and need for discovery not to mention going alone after knowing what the aliens were capable of got him killed.
Which leads me to the characterizations. Valentine was, of course, the maternal kind staying on the planet she now called home because she had married and gotten pregnant and that is what pregnant women do.
Always only good for philosophizing even though having only theoretical knowledge. While Ender goes exploring without hesitation and saves several species instead of just one the author had to make him even more fantastic in this sequel, of course.
In the end, Novinha also view spoiler [marries Ender hide spoiler ] - I guess "misery loves company" is true after all. I resent people who try to preach to me while being vile themselves.
It shows on the page, too. Like the audacity to presume you know a person or even species simply by reading about them. The whole concept of the Speakers rubbed me the wrong way.
Yes, what Ender wrote in his publication at the end of the last book was indeed what the last queen was telling him, but how would humanity know this to be accurate?!
Moreover, I had less of a problem with Ender becoming a Speaker than with all the other Speakers that followed his example.
How humanity thinks and feels about fellow humans and what you can learn from papers and stuff on the dead is not necessarily how they actually were, no matter how much empathy you have.
To me it all reads like pseudo-intellectual, self-aggrandizing nonsense, bloated to the point of bursting. But Asimov had style albeit almost no female characters to begin with and his creation was vast and impressive.
Or a different example: The bookgods know I was soooo annoyed with all his characters and wanted to scream and give up on his Mars Trilogy but the guy had done his research, he knew his science and the scope of the world he created was astounding.
Not so here even though we have colony worlds and Jane no, not the funny guy from Firefly. Anyway, add to that that the story was dragging nothing like Battle School to hold my interest and that the writing style was still nothing special and you might understand why this is not for me.
And yes, I did round up my rating. Ovde nema a od akcije, ali ima a od antropologije tojest ksenologije , i a, i n, i t Andrew "Ender" Wiggin is no longer the sole and primary focus of the story though his importance is still pronounced; but in a different sense from his destroyer days.
He is in fact the very first Speaker since space travel has slowed down his ageing process, and he wanted to once and for all discard Ender by speaking on behalf of the dead to impact their histories on the living.
This is the perfect form of penance for Ender, and the only people aware of his identity are his sister and the sentient artificial intelligence Jane who sought him out herself and hoped one day that he could help human beings accept her kind.
Though Ender still plays a huge role in Speaker for the Dead , the story is focused on a human settlement called Lusitania which is a largely Catholic community that lives alongside a newly discovered species called "piggies".
But before Ender ever gets there, Novinha who was now an adult cancels the summoning, especially after she figures out a significant revelation about the piggies, and wants desperately to protect it to avoid bloodshed among the people she loves the most.
By speaking on behalf of their dead father, Ender exposed the painful truth and the healing process thus began. It also served as a heartfelt testament about the freeing capacity of truth and compassion.
And as much as I enjoyed Ender as a child in the first book, I was pleased to see him in this new role as Speaker, and that he is making amends from his past transgressions and in my eyes he has truly become a mender of worlds.
Perhaps this novel, book two in the Ender series, may not satisfy those who want a comic book hero. Ender is the kind of hero that has more living man as part of his character than a storybook person.
He wants to be a husband, father, and someone who is building a home, not a military genius, not an adventurer, explorer or even a businessman.
Being Speaker for the Dead is how he maintains self-respect, and at the same time, he hopes to evolve the human intellect past its instinct to murder the different.
If aliens have sentience, then they can maybe see how the Other may have the same aspirations all living intelligences must have.
The Buggers an alien race discovered in space , by this definition, were not only ahead of humans scientifically but also morally view spoiler [, but Ender destroyed them in the previous book before understanding could be shared between races.
She is a powerful metaphor for what is possible and a god icon at the same time. Maybe Ender is Jesus, and maybe his brother Peter and sister Valentine could be representing Guessing is part of the joy of reading.
Some of my musings: The Piggies a new, recently discovered, alien race are a symbol for who we humans are today, and they have a literal Tree of Life?
Or not - you decide People have been arguing for decades about what is Literature and what is simple entertainment.
I think Literature has become too solipsistic and it needs to admit new genres like Speakers of the Dead. This is a beautiful read. Aug 18, W. Some aliens, a superintelligent virus; snooooozer.
Well depicted snoozer, but still. Ender spends his whole life in isolation, and comes out of it a wimp, not a hero. Makes me wish Mazer Rackham had kicked his ass a little harder in the first book.
View all 3 comments. Ender decays into something of a pathetic and self-pitying figure who wanders about uttering platitudes and aphorisms.
I have no idea why this second reading of Speaker for the Dead was so moving. My previous rating of 3 Stars is now incomprehensible to me.
I am not a very emotional person and I have seldom been moved to laughter, tears, heartache or sheer joy while reading but this book did all that.
There are hundreds, if not thousands of reviews on the book. I can add little except note that you will find: What a little treasure.
A very good science-fiction book. I could not put it down for a while! There is an attempt to give a spiritual dimension to the story.
However, the conflict resolution feels a bit too pat for me. The Utopian reality that the characters all embrace at the end of the book seems forced.
A good ending is not always what is needed. I would have liked to see a more nuanced reality emerging from th A very good science-fiction book.
I would have liked to see a more nuanced reality emerging from this alien world. I mean, its interesting how he sets up his plots with time: And his use of Portuguese to help individualize his focus planet in here: Oh and one more thing.
One of my favorite books in a long time! I read some reviews that criticized the book for being allegorical, but this is one of the main reasons why I liked it.
Waaay different than the first book, but very, very good in its own way. This book has all the feels.
Bittersweet to the max. It is just so… complete. Complete characters- characters so complete and whole that you feel awkward calling them characters not people fucking Ender.
And then the whole thing with Jane, and things not being the same again between her and Ender- my heart is broken. Complete worlds- worlds so detailed and casually referenced and slowly fed to you, world-building on the level of Tolkien or Cordwainer Smith.
Because they could kill someone. If I marry a girl, will you die? Card has female characters in positions of authority. He has them be savagely witty, or out-reasoning their male peers in class, or being brilliant scientists and philosophers.
In short, he treats women like human beings. This is annoying because I think highly of Card for this. His character is the ultimate empath, the only one who can truly understand why others do what they do, who can find compassion for anyone, even those who are so different from himself- even other species who have murdered his fellow humans.
I struggle with the fact that I love this book. I wish, so much, that one of my favourite authors were different, and I feel uncomfortable loving this book so much, but there it is.
So it is with a heavy, reluctant, guilty heart that I give this book five stars. About Orson Scott Card. Card was born in Washington and grew up in California, Arizona, and Utah.
Besides his writing, he teaches occasional classes and workshops and directs plays. He recently began a longterm position as a professor of writing and literature at Southern Virginia University.
