Gothic II by Piranha Bytes, JoWood Productions and Atari (2003) The ‘word of the day’ of the last set was: ‘plead’. Suggested by LittleKidLTU: www.youtube.com Guessed by mnovotny4. Their channel is not available, so I cannot link it. We teleport to the monastery, where Pyrokar is really happy to hear about our latest successes and promotes us… tss, not really. He’s still sitting in his chair, hasn’t moved an inch since we left to kill the dragons, but has the guts to tell us that our work was in vain if I don’t do this and that. How useless can one person be? After barely restraining ourselves from stabbing him, we are sent to Xardas’ tower to gain some information with which we can open the book ‘The Halls of Irdorath’ stored in the cloister basement. Xardas is missing, though, and only left a letter for us, giving us instructions on how to read the book. Back in the monastery, we help Neoras with a little problem he has with a rare, missing ingredient for a potion, and then walk past Talamon and into the sacred halls beneath the church grounds. However, the actual library is much further down, behind a hidden door and some nasty undead servants.Notes on this particular LP: 1. You don’t have to know Gothic to understand Gothic II. Where necessary, I will explain, otherwise I’ll pretend to have lost my memory. 2. This is a Let’s Roleplay. My actions and decisions are based on a certain type of character my hero resembles in this LP. 3. Graphics are on maximum, videos

Mosteiro Santa Maria da Vitória, more commonly known as the Batalha Monastery, is a Dominican convent in Batalha, in the District of Leiria, Portugal. It is one of the best and original examples of Late Gothic architecture in Portugal, The convent was built to thank the Virgin Mary for the Portuguese victory over the Castilians in the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385, fulfilling a promise of King John I of Portugal. The battle put an end to the 1383-1385 crisis. Monastery of Santa María da Vitória. Lateral view of the monastery and statue of Nuno Álvares Pereira. It took over a century to build, starting in 1386 and ending circa 1517, spanning the reign of seven kings. It took the efforts of fifteen architects (Mestre das Obras da Batalha), but for seven of them the title was no more than an honorary title bestowed on them. The construction required an enormous effort, using extraordinary resources of men and material. New techniques and artistic styles, hitherto unknown in Portugal, were deployed. Work began in 1386 by the Portuguese architect Afonso Domingues who continued till 1402. He drew up the plan and many of the structures in the church and the cloister are his doing. His style was essentially Rayonnant Gothic, however there are influences from the English Perpendicular Period. There are similarities with the façade of York Minster and with the nave and transept of Canterbury Cathedral. He was succeeded by Huguet from 1402 to 1438. This architect, who was probably

A Mouraria é um bairro da cidade de Lisboa, Portugal, que deve o seu nome ao facto de D. Afonso Henriques, após a conquista de Lisboa, ter confinado uma zona da cidade para os muçulmanos. Foi neste bairro que permaneceram os mouros após a Reconquista Cristã, assim como os judeus, que também foram confinados aos bairros do Castelo. Neste e nos bairros circundantes, tiveram origem as primeiras produções de arte mudéjar portuguesa, que viriam a dar alas para o surgimento do Manuelino. A dolência ea melancolia dos seus cânticos estão na origem do Fado. Durante o século XIX, proliferou nas tabernas do bairro a prostituição ea violência, o que tornou o local quase impenetrável. Filha de uma prostituta, nasceu na Rua do Capelão, junto ao Beco dos Três Lagares, Maria Severa Onofriana, primeira fadista feminina e expressão máxima do fado à época. Na casa em frente, nasceu já no século XX, aquele que foi considerado o “rei do fado da Mouraria”, Fernando Maurício. A Rua do Capelão faz hoje parte da iconografia do Fado. Mais acima, numa casa cor-de-rosa da Travessa dos Lagares, cresceu Mariza, a mais internacional fadista portuguesa. Junto à casa, agora fechado ao público, localizava-se o restaurante Zalala, onde Mariza aprendeu a cantar fado. Depois da abertura ao público do Centro Comercial da Mouraria no Martim Moniz[1], o consumo de drogas propagou-se pelo bairro, que hoje é palco de um abandono geral da população, que deu lugar ao tráfico de estupefacientes e à ruína dos

Santander es un ciudad autónoma española y una ciudad portuaria, capital de dicho municipio, de la actual autonomía y comunidad histórica de Cantabria, situados en la costa norte de la Península Ibérica. El municipio de Santander limita con los de Santa Cruz de Bezana y Camargo además de cerrar por el sur la bahía homónima y con el Mar Cantábrico por el norte. Durante la segunda mitad del siglo XIX, aprovechando el auge de las estaciones balnearias entre las clases acomodadas europeas, que introducían un nuevo concepto de ocio asociado a la salud, una serie de iniciativas hosteleras promocionaron Santander en la Corte por sus playas propicias para los baños de ola (la primera temporada se anunció en la prensa en 1856) e impulsaron la creación de la ciudad-balneario de El Sardinero, que se consolidó como destino estival de la alta sociedad española a principios del siglo XX. Durante el reinado de Alfonso XIII Santander se convirtió en el lugar de veraneo favorito de la corte. En 1908 la ciudad construyó y regaló al rey el Palacio de la Magdalena. Actualmente continúa siendo un enclave turístico importante del norte de España, sobre todo para castellanoloneses en especial los burgaleses y los vallisoletanos y con playas como la de El Sardinero (2 km de longitud) o la de la Península de la Magdalena, que atraen a un buen número de visitantes, procedentes, en su mayoría, de otras comunidades españolas.

Monasterio Santa Maria de Huerta. El claustro gótico Desde la nave izquierda de la iglesia se accede, por una puerta que se abrió en el siglo XII, al claustro llamado de los Caballeros; tomó este nombre porque fue lugar de enterramiento de familias de la nobleza y personas ilustres. Es un buen ejemplo de claustro gótico cisterciense. Desde el claustro bajo de los Caballeros se asciende a la parte superior por una magnífica escalera de honor construida en 1600, que desemboca en el claustro alto, obra renacentista que se empezó a construir en 1533 y se terminó en 1547. Las galerías de este claustro presentan arcos muy rebajados y balaustres y una ornamentación de medallones que dan nombre a cada una de ellas: Galería de Reyes (a partir de Enrique I), Galería de Apóstoles, Galería de Adalides (caudillos militares) y Galería de Profetas. Por el interior de estas galerías pueden verse en determinados espacios los bustos de algunos monjes del monasterio que se destacaron por su virtud o por alguna otra cuestión.
