The Sword of Night and Flame is a powerful magical weapon that was created by the great wizard Saruman. It is said that this sword is so powerful that it can cut through anything, including the very fabric of reality itself.
The sword was used by Saruman during the War of the Ring in an attempt to defeat the forces of good. However, the sword was eventually destroyed by the heroic hobbit, Frodo Baggins.
Written for mature Christians, this book is not recommended for the spiritually timid. Continuing themes established in the previous books, The Torch and the Sword carries these themes further and deeper while venturing into new spiritual territories The Torch and the Sword paints an increasingly broad and clear spiritual picture of our times.
The truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ is the light which is stronger than any darkness. This book is a call to those who will love and stand for the Truth until His victory is complete.
An oath of loyalty. Two warring kings. A destiny he didn’t choose. England is in turmoil as Vikings and Saxons battle for territory. Rumours build about the fatal sickness of the King, and the country awaits an heir.
A violent clash at sea forces the warrior lord Uhtred to lead his men from his Northumbrian fortress to London and plunge into the eye of the storm. For two kings claim the empty throne, and a new kingdom cannot be born without bloodshed.
Uhtred’s sword will leave one king dead and the other victorious. But sometimes it is hard to know the will of the gods. ‘Nobody in the world does this better than Cornwell’ LEE CHILD.
Book 12 of the saga and I’m still hooked. Bernard Cornwell really brings this era of our history to life. Through his books I have become engrossed in finding out more about the real history of many of the characters in the series.
This novel continues Uhtred’s story. but I won’t give anything away. Only one more book to go – then I’ll be bereft! Love getting my novels from WOB – I never have to wait long for the next one.
After the first 10 books I couldn’t wail to get my hands on the last the editions. I was not disappointed in Bernard Cornwell’s last 3 books. He brought to life all the characters whether fictional or real.
The representative of Uthred of Bebbenberg (fictional) and King Ethethelm ( the first true King of England) was magical. Not only are these books characters so defined, it seems you know them all by the end.
Truly a treasure and bravo to Cornell. Tommy Lowery.
Bernard Cornwell has developed wonderful characters that are believable and compelling. He lists historical details at the end, A great representation of a whole different time. Great battle scenes & bizarrely epic relationships.

Xuan Yuan Sword 7 is an action RPG with frenetic real-time combat, visceral 3D presentation, and a rich cinematic narrative. It is a celebration of ancient China’s landscape, civilization, and culture, infused with the mystique of its own legends in stark contrast to anachronistic technological designs.
It is a world that is both familiar and mysterious, one of both science and spirituality, one that is waiting to be explored. Take the role of the calm and reliable swordsman Taishi Zhao as he fights to protect his family and uncover the truth of a blight threatens all of China.
With a story deeply rooted in ancient Chinese history and mythology, Xuan Yuan Sword 7 reimagines both as one fantastical and chaotic realm under the governance of a new Xin Dynasty. Near the end of Western Han rule, the powerful prime minister of China superseded his Emperor, promising an era of peace and prosperity.
But ten years later, that promise has never been fulfilled. Instead, a decade of war and famine has left China in ruin, and its salvation seems to lie in the hands of a Mohist swordsman who gains control of a fabled artifact called the Elysium Scroll.
Can the science-seeking Mohists revive their former glory, or will they fade into the pages of forgotten history?.
For the most part, the game’s marriage of its supernatural elements with its mundane real-world setting is handled well, even if not all of the references will strike a chord with western gamers. This is despite a wealth of available tools, like a detailed journal and a translation that conveys many of the narrative’s nuances quite well (despite a large amount of grammar and spelling mistakes).
Taishi Zhao himself has access to the Elysium scroll, a mysterious wooden scroll passed along to him by his parents that allows him to slow down time as well as enter the magical world of Elysium at certain story beats.
This is also where players will be able to upgrade their weapons and equipment, and synthesize items using parts collected during the game, with the option of leveling up these abilities for access to even better gear modifications.
Apart from Zhao and his group, however, the region’s remaining citizens don’t seem to have too much time for mystical powers and the like, and are busy with their rural lives. The country’s civil war and political upheaval are frequently referenced, but happen largely off-screen and far away, since Zhao has his own goals to pursue.
The combat is fluid and fun. There is a decent amount of boss fights and side quests. The game reminds me of the original Onimusha without the heavy tank controls. A very underrated game worth giving a chance to!.
Pros : Great game, Fantastic graphics, Wonderful dialogue, Brilliant mechanics, Cons : slightly hard if you don’t know how to strategize. ( you’ll know what I mean throughout the gameplay ) Overall top top game.

I bought this unit based on price and availability but you get what you pay for. It’s a very cheaply made unit. It’s much smaller than anticipated and the flames look nothing like they do in the picture.
On a positive note, the wood mantel is nice. I’ve had 2 major issues with this unit: Issue 1: The pilot flame pattern was incorrect. It curved upward and was misaligned with the thermocouple, barely making contact with it.
When the burner would kick on, the pilot would go out, shutting the unit down completely. Issue 2: When the control knob is turned to the off position, the pilot cannot be relit unless you completely disconnect the gas line and brass elbow from the gas inlet and then reinstall.
At first I thought it was a safety feature blocking the gas flow when the pilot went out but this happens not only when it goes out on its own, but also when you manually turn the knob to off as well.
I’m fairly certain that I had a defective unit but after reading reviews on other websites, it appears that this is a common problem that other people have had as well. When you call the support number in the user manual, you get a pre-recorded message telling you to send an email to create a support ticket.
They did get back to me in a day but only offered basic troubleshooting advice that was already listed in the manual. Fortunately, Tractor Supply has been great and is working with me to return for a full refund.
I will be buying something else that is not made by Duluth Forge/Procom/Bluegrass Living (beware, they operate/manufacture under all of these various names).
We bought the fireplace in May with tax return money. We had a plumber come out in October to install it. They had a hard time getting the pilot light to light. Plumber recommended we keep it lit. We had not connected the remote yet.
A few days later we go to set the remote and the pilot light goes out. We cannot get it to light again. So another plumber comes out today and cannot get it lit at all. I called the number for this company and it says you have to send an email! I would avoiding buying anything from this company.
This fireplace is beautiful! We went with the slate grey. Unit is as shown. Its heavy and solid. I dont really agree with previous reviews about the putting it together being so hard. Instructions were east to follow and it took one person and about 30mins tops!! We actually installed the LP line ourselves and it was very easy.
Every weapon needs its a resting place. While sheaths, scabbards, cases, and cabinets offer some options, the charming Rampant Lion Sword Hangers let you keep your favorite sword on display even when it is not in use.
These decorative sword hangers display intricate rampant lion crests along with crowns and other medieval emblems. Mount your sword on the wall of your choice with these adjustable hangers, which come with all the necessary hardware for securing in place.
Since they are adjustable, they can support other tools and weaponry, as well.
Cold Steel isn’t the best company for HEMA enthusiasts, but this buckler is actually very good. It’s on the heavier side, but not TOO heavy. Other steel bucklers we use are the same weight. It’s made of plastic, and isn’t supposed to be used against metal weapons, but I use it against steel swords and see no issues.
Yes, steel swords will dent the plastic, but not more than what happens to a wooden buckler (and we use wooden bucklers against steel both in HEMA and throughout history). I just use a knife to shave away sharp edges that occurs when the buckler is dented after sparring and can allready see that it will take a LOT of sparring before this buckler is destroyed.
I would actually suspect it will last longer than a wooden buckler. Another great thing is the handle and the room around the handle. This is big enough to fit in a protective glove much better than some other bucklers I’ve tried.
It’s also nice a nice grip where you can place your thumb on the grip for better control of the buckler. So, for a robust cheap buckler that will last a long time even with lots of sparring (against metal weapons) I’d recommend this.
If you use it only against plastic/wooden weapons it will last forever. Let me again say that the grip is very good on this buckler. So I actually prefer this bucker over another steel buckler I have when sparring.
Weight is in the upper limit but not too heavy, which can’t be said about a lot of Cold Steel products.
I’m handy so I fashioned a pair of hangers from an old metal square several years ago. After years of looking at how my cutlass needed a change I bought these cool scull and crossed sword beauties. Good quality and perfect for my sword.
Not much more than a ten dollar bill and keeps it up out of reach of my grandchildren. Quality hangers for a quality sword. Spring adjusts automatically to thickness of sword/scabbard. I’m impressed, and I’m picky.
Create a stunning focal point with Napoleon’s Allure Recessed Wall Mounted Electric Fireplace. The fireplace is not just perfect for any room but for every room. The vertical design hosts a collection of features including an LED ember bed, flames and side accent lights with more than 6 color options.
Operable with or without heat allows you to enjoy this statement piece all year round no matter the season. Making a grand statement that is as functional as it is beautiful has never been easier than with this trendsetting fireplace.
I’m taking a star off my rating for the instructions and recessed installation—not because of the unit itself. The main issue is if you are installing this fireplace in a recessed location. If you download the manual (from this page) you will see in the instructions they only have ONE page for instructions on recessed installation.
The surface-mount instructions are four pages long. There are a couple considerations that make this a tricky unit to install in a recessed manner. If you examine the instructions (page 14), they indicate the size of the opening needed for the unit.
So far, so good. The unit is designed to fit between a standard stud width of 14. 5″, and achieves that with ease. However, securing the unit isn’t accomplished on the sides–which would make the most sense given that is where the studs are.
Instead, mounting is done at the top and bottom. What they don’t say in the instructions (but show in a small image) is that you will need to install wooden supports between the studs, just above/below the opening.
Once you finish that, you then realize that to mount the retention brackets, you need to screw the brackets into the bottom 1/2″ of the wooden supports. As you can imagine, that is far from ideal given the chance for the wood to split.
(Pilot holes are a must. ) The recessed mount instructions also fail to instruct the installer to remove the cord and replace it with a different back plate that has a spot for a romex clamp. Oh, and there was a whopping 2″ of wire with which to make my connection inside the unit.
I managed, but this is a rookie mistake. Then there is the matter of the vents on the unit. Examine the pictures and you will see vents on the sides at the top and back. I question why those vents are not covered when the unit is installed recessed, but I’ll give the manufacturer the benefit of the doubt.
However, if you are surface mounting the unit, it appears that they have everything covered. You should have no trouble if you follow the instructions. They even include white wiremold in the box, so you can disguise the cord.
(The wiremold isn’t listed in the instructions. ) Just peel the tape from the wiremold, and stick it on the wall. So for those who are buying to surface mount this unit, I would give it 5 stars. But if you will be installing it recessed, I give it 4 stars, and only because the unit looks good and functions with low noise.
If you have any uncertainty, I strongly suggest using a professional to do the recessed install.
I purchased this particular style of fireplace for a smaller room in my home. It couldn’t be more perfect both in size and heat output! Very stylish with great realistic looking logs (Napoleon’s logs are the best in the industry as far as I’m concerned).
I highly recommend this for anyone with a small room where wall space is at a premium. 5++++ stars.
Your earlobe has been unable to defend itself for long enough. Today. that changes. Give your ear a fighting chance with this sword earring charm. Designed with a sleek black finish, this surgical-grade stainless steel pendant easily combines with other charms for dangerous fun.
Other earring charms and hoop earrings for men are sold separately. Charm length: 1 3/16″ (30 mm) 316L stainless steel.
YOU CAN’T BEAT this price for this Quality of plant- PERIOD AS of 2. 20 These were grown ABOVE water. The biggest thing for good Amazon Sword growth is food. Ideally, you want to have Amazon Swords in a planted tank that has a large amount of nutrients available in the substrate.
Amazon Swords are heavy eaters and will prefer this setup. Small Amazon Swords are $8 and are anywhere from 2-5 inches. Comes As a green or red sword in varying species. Get them while their small. They won’t stay small.
If you could add ONE thing to show MASSIVE Sword growth. it would be our RED Clay (Clay has an iron binding ability. and swords LOVE Iron!) Don’t Forget To Buy our Growth Juice and Iron Supplements for your plants!!.
Thanks Dustin for the gorgeous swords. They were far and away superior to the one I had to drive 120 miles one way to pick up at Petco, last time we went to Sioux Falls with 3 kids and inevitably came home with more fish (and 4 new tanks for the bettas they bought.
) They went straight into our angelfish tank. If there is any plant that has a symbiotic relationship with Angelfish, it’s the Amazon Sword. The angels love grooming them and picking off any algae that decides to grow on them and as adults, laying eggs on them and of course the plants love the fish waste as fertilizer.
I will try adding some pictures once I get them planted. It’s only about 36 degrees outside, and we are having to run the woodstove this evening, so I don’t fancy sticking my arm in a fish tank tonight.
They are touching gravel (black and pink, the daughter picked long ago) with their roots, thanks to the plant weights. Angels are still in our QT tank (w/ an albino bristle-nose pleco and 4 male guppies) until we move some tanks around, get another 20 gal and set up the basement fish room, but all our tanks are planted ones.
This was my 8th order from Dustin. I run an aquascaping business that requires a vast variety of plant species that suit the desires of my customers. With the thousands of plant varieties available for purchase, finding a one stop supplier is nearly impossible.
Besides that, finding an honest seller that delivers not only quality plants but quantity as well. Dustin delivers it all, including fast shipping and great packaging. I highly recommend his products and customer service after many, many rip off on line sellers.
His plants are as described and almost always better than expected. Do not hesitate to purchase from Dustin!!!!.
Service: I placed an order with multiple different plants and multiple different quantities. When I received my order everything the quality was great, but I was missing some plants. I was very impressed with how Josh handled my situation.
I think it really speaks volumes to the type of business Dustin is running when his crew can not only admit to mistakes, but make it right. I contacted Josh and he not only compensated me for the plants I was missing, but did me one better, and I got a few extra plants, which was more than I expected, or even asked for.
Plants: My amazon swords came in very healthy. The description says small, but they are plenty big for the price. Sure they are not monsters. YET. but they will be before long. They weren’t completely submerged growth (mostly emersed growth) but did have some submerged leaves already, so I knew they’d be fine.
Besides, I’ve ordered in the past and never had issues. These swords are a few weeks old now and are healthy as ever, turning into monsters in my 20 long. Amazing background plant if you want density and to not be able to see through to the back of the tank.
All in all I am very satisfied with the health of the plants and the service given by Josh to make things right. Tank on!.
In ancient times, humans lived in peace with dragons. But then came the Dark Dragon, a malevolent giant that wasted no time in plunging the Earth into an abyss of darkness. Their strength drained by the evil of the Dark Dragon, the remaining dragons placed their last hope in the hands of the humans in the form of one of their own fangs.
Thus was born the Dragon Sword, a formidable weapon inhabited by the very essence of the powers of the dragons. It was with this sword that the humans were able to defeat the Dark Dragon. In the countless millennia since, the dragons have long since perished.
But their spirit remains in the form of that sword, now carried by the descendants of the humans that fought by the side on that fateful day. Long ago, the Dark Dragon plunged the world into an era of chaos.
Upon this eventual defeat, an enchanted sword known as the Dark Dragon Blade was created from its bones. This dangerously powerful weapon, infused with the malevolent spirit of the Dark Dragon itself, was entrusted to the care of a bloodline of humans known as the Dragon Lineage.
However, evil beings, enthralled by its immense evil power, stole the Dark Dragon Blade. And once again the world faced the threat of eternal darkness. a young Ninja named Ryu Hayabusa, survivor of the Hayabusa clan and descendant of the Dragon Lineage, took up his family legendary birthright, the Dragon Sword, to face this threat alone.
At the end of an intense battle, Ryu shattered the evil Dark Dragon Blade into countless shards with blow from his Dragon Sword. Six months have passed since what is now known as the Dark Dragon Blade Incident.
I’ve played Ninja Gaiden on the original Xbox before, so I knew about it. But I wish someone had said it was to be played vertically beforehand. I started it immediately of course, but I’m still looking for a way to get past the first stage (there’s no way out of the area, it’s two dead ends and it won’t let you climb the walls).
My surprises aside, the story and weapons are cool, characters are the same, and it’s very authentic ninja. 3 stars is just for the DS game on a 3DS aspect, and the vertical thing. I first of all switched to Microsoft because Nintendo games are all suuuper expensive.
I hope I can find quality games for lower prices in the future.
I would say that this game is exceptionally good. Here are some reasons why. Reason #1: The movement of characters are quite fluid, and the DS doesn’t hog down with several enemies on the screen. This provides you with a constant feel for action and a sense of overall pride and satisfaction when enemies around you are thrown and slashed to their utter defeat.
Reason #2: The story is well done, with cut screen pictures and voice sounds such as cackling, grunting, (in battle as well), and thoughtful hums and hmms when something has come to the main characters attention.
The movement and the story really reminds one of an old dubbed karate film to give you an idea of what the story and characters are like, but not so much so that it is corny. Reason #3: There are touch screen controls only.
This might be a problem in some games but in this game it actually enhances the experiance because it makes one feel that you are a lot closer to becoming involved with the hero of the story. By hacking and slashing with your stylis and throwing your shurikens by tapping on an enemy or item you really feel that you are more involved than having buttons and d-pad movement.
I would also mention that some might think that the stylis would get in the way of what is on the screen but it doesn’t at all, (believe me) and also your swipes and taps are really accurate with what moves you want to do.
Reason #4: The boss battles are intense, although somewhat easy, The graphics are top notch for the DS and the screen shakes with roars of the giant monsters and deformations at the end of each level.
I will admit however, in regards to the boss battles being easy, that I’ve not played on a difficulty level higher than normal so you might find the boss battles more difficult on a higher level of challenge, after you’ve defeated the game on normal that is.
Reason #5: The game is not just an action game in the sense that you can buy upgrades, such as magic and movement enhancements to make defeating the bad guys that much more enjoyable. Another point is that you are in a free moving world (to some extent) and not in a 2D sidescroller which in my opinion would not be nearly as enjoyable for touch screen controls.
Ending comments: This game is certainly worth buying and is one of the best on the DS. If you are looking for an intense action game with a good story, excellent graphics, and plenty of fun, this will fill the hole that needs to be filled in your entertainment thingamajiggy.
I must say that i’m very impressed with the port of this game. Although it’s nowhere near as violent, the game play is very good. Using the stylus to move, vs. the control pad is different, however it works.
I wish they added more than one Ninpo Attack indicator (at least 3) to help out. I’ve been a fan of the Ninja Gaiden Series since it came to the PS3. I played it a little on the original NES, however I wasn’t really into it.
For a handheld version of this game, I would give it a 8. 5. The fact that there’s no blood, more weapons, and only one ninpo indicator attack is why I wouldn’t rate it a 10.
Wear your plate armor, use your shield and get ready to slay dragons with this magnificent black Knight sword. Each pack comes with 1 medieval Knight sword that measures 26-1/2 inches long. This molded plastic medieval Knight sword has a notched double-edged blade, an ornate handle with crest, and a filigree-embellished hand Guard.
This hero sword includes black plastic sheath with slots that allow you to fasten it to your belt. Use this medieval hero costume accessory for halloween parties, themed parties, costume parties, plays, presentations and other special events.
While the picture shows that the blade has a gleam to it – the reason why I bought this sword – the actual blade is a dull gray. There is no shine to it at all. Also, the blade was curved when I received it.
The sword is made of a light, cheap plastic. I would not recommend spending the money to buy it and have it shipped.
