A Book of English Food is an elegant compendium of brilliant recipes adapted from the cookery books of the 1920s and 1930s by Arabella Boxer, with beautiful new illustrations by Cressida Bell. Arabella Boxer's Book of English Food describes the delicious dishes - and the social conditions in which they were prepared, cooked and eaten - in the short span between the two World Wars when English cooking suddenly blossomed. The food in these wonderful recipes comes from the great country houses, where little had changed since Victorian times, the large houses in London and the South, where fashionable hostesses vied with each other to entertain the most distinguished guests at their tables, and less grand establishments, like those in Bloomsbury where the painters and writers of the day contrived to lead cultured and civilised lives on little money. Containing 200 recipes, drawn from cookery books, magazines of the period, family sources or from talking to survivors who still remember those days, A Book of English Food is a fascinating glimpse into another world, and a celebration of English cooking at its finest. 'That rare thing, a cookery book with an argument: viz, that English cookery was once both good and independent of the cuisines of her neighbours . . . a rollicking good read' Observer 'I still find the calm elegance of her writing an inspiration' Nigel Slater 'A treasury of social gossip . . . immensely enjoyable and useful' Spectator 'A captivating exploration and celebration of the flowering of English cooking in the 1920s and 30s' Financial Times 'I recommend it, not only for its excellent food but also for the superb introductions and details of social history in the great houses with their shimmering hostesses' Evening Standard Arabella Boxer was born in 1934 and educated in the UK, Paris and Rome. She has written for the Sunday Times magazine and the Telegraph magazine and was Food Writer for Vogue from 1966 to 1968 and 1975 to 1991. She was awarded the Glenfiddich Cookery Writer of the Year Award in 1975 and 1978, a Glenfiddich Special Award in 1992 and won the 1991 André Simon Award and the 1992 Michael Smith Macallan Award for fine writing about British food. Arabella Boxer is the author of a number of cookery books, including First Slice Your Cookbook, Arabella Boxer's Garden Cookbook, Mediterranean Cookbook, The Sunday Times Complete Cookbook and A Visual Feast (with Tessa Traeger). A founding member of the Guild of Food Writers, she lives in London.

Guild Wars is an episodic series of multiplayer online role-playing games developed by ArenaNet and published by NCsoft. Although often defined as an MMORPG, the developers define it as a CORPG due to notable differences from the MMORPG genre. It provides two main modes of gameplay a cooperative role-playing component and a competitive player vs. player (PvP) component both of which are hosted on ArenaNet's servers. Three stand-alone episodes and one expansion pack were released in the series from April 2005 to August 2007. The games depict the history of the fictional fantasy world of Tyria, each campaign focuses on events in disjoint sections of the world at roughly the same time. A player creates an avatar to play through the cooperative storyline of a campaign, taking on the role of a hero who must save Tyria from episode-specific antagonists. Players can group with other players and non-player characters, known as henchmen and heroes, to perform missions and quests found throughout the game-world. PvP combat is consensual, team based, and limited to areas designed for such combat.

DAS SCHICKSAL RUFT - SIE FOLGEN ... In den dunklen Tiefen Tyrias sind die Alten Drachen aus ihrem jahrhundertealten Schlaf erwacht.Zunächst erhob sich Primordus und jagte die Asura aus ihrem unterirdischen Reich an die Oberfläche. Ein halbes Jahrhundert später erwachte Jormag und zwang die Norn zur Flucht aus den Südlichen Zittergipfeln. Eine Generation später kehrte Zhaitan in einer kontinenterschütternden Umwälzung zurück, wobei unter anderem die Hauptstadt der Menschennation Kryta überflutet wurde. Die Völker Tyrias stehen am Abgund. Helden warfen sich der Bedrohung mutig entgegen, nur um zu willfährigen Dienern zu werden; Armeen stellten sich den Drachen und wurden mühelos hinweggefegt; die Zwerge opferten ihr gesamtes Volk, um einen einzelnen Drachen-Champion zur Strecke zu bringen. Die Tage der Sterblichen scheinen gezählt ... Aus den Reihen der Geschlagenen erheben sich 6 mutige Streiter, die für ihre Völker in die Schlacht ziehen wollen:Eir, die Norn- Jägerin;Snaff, der geniale Asura und seine Assistentin Zojja;Rytlock, der wilde Charr-Krieger;die Sylvari Caithe und Logan, der menschliche Hauptmann der Seraph-Wache.Zusammen bilden sie die legendäre Abenteurergruppe Klinge des Schicksals - und das Schicksal Tyrias liegt nun in ihren Händen ...
