The symphony is one of the most complex and traditionally established musical forms, and one of its prominent elements is a sonata form. A large musical structure that became universal in the late 18th century, this form is centered around a tonal and thematic conflict between two subjects that are presented in the exposition part of the sonata form, elaborated and contrasted in the development, and resolved harmonically and thematically in the recapitulation. I felt that the sonata form would create a great structure for the presentation of Dragonborn in the first movement, and you can hear the first subject in the video.The symphony is in 4 movements, each featuring different atmosphere and characters, that are united through motives, rhythms, and themes to create a symphonic portrait of Dragonborn and sensations of the world that surrounds him.

At the peak of Vesuvius, among the ruins of that which was once the flourishing Pompeii, a worrying community has formed, practicing ancient and sinister rituals. Feared by the surrounding populations for their ferocity, they live off raids and ransacks, and the only thing known about them is their strong tie with the element of Fire. Missing an eye, they are referred to as “Scarfaces”; a name owing to their common feature.
The Scarfaces are in reality cult followers of the god Vesuvio, which as the story goes is King Cyclops from the depths of the volcano. In honour of the divinity, to be initiated the Scarfaces must renounce an eye; a ritual celebrated by the minister who cuts it out using a knife “kissed by Fire”.
Pompeii is a sacred place where the Scarfaces live and practice their cult, due to its strong ties with the volcano. The Scarfaces describe it as “the city touched by the hand of Vesuvio”. The community’s very lifestyle is an ode to their god and they define themselves as “those burned by the Fire of violence”.
Their pagan faith cannot be tolerated by the Vatican; Pope Julius II is determined to exterminate these abhorrent beings and destroy their cult into oblivion. Aware of the political risks, while undertaking an inquisitional campaign along the borders of the Kingdom of Naples, he decides to delegate the task to one of his most loyal Free Company.
Vesuvio, Lord of the Forge and King of the Cyclopes is more than just a myth. A faithful apprentice of the god Volcano, this almighty Cyclops continued to prosper on the earth even after humanity abandoned the pagan beliefs of his master. His forging skills have therefore evolved over the course of the centuries, so as to create objects with divine powers. Vesuvio places his abilities at the service of his followers, now decimated over the passing of the centuries and through the evolution of the human civilisation. Inspired by the art of Vesuvius, the Cyclopes too dedicate themselves to the art of forging; their works are often offered as gifts to humans that make sacrifices in the name of the Lord of the Forge.
The Cyclopes, with their solitary temperament, have always sought to avoid human contact. Nonetheless, as they don’t practice farming and breeding, in the past these beings often resorted to stealing livestock to support themselves. The advent of the Scarfaces, with their sacrificial gifts, has allowed them to return to their isolated way of living. For this reason, every now and then they leave a gift for these humans, worshippers of their King.
The mission organised by the Vatican to annihilate this pagan cult and all its followers, hides a second, more obscure scope: to force the Cyclopes and Volcano to come out of hiding. Having become aware of the great talent possessed by these beings, Julius II hopes to get his hands on the artefacts created by Vesuvio, in order to adjust the balance of power in the Italian peninsula to his favour.
Purgatory has released the second model from their quirky range of models. St Peter who measures 36mm to the head, comes with spiked baseball bat, rosary in the off hand, beard, sandals, suit, sculpted base and of course those wings!
The model is available for pre order now at £13 plus postage. (we cap postage at £3.50 for international to make it reasonable for oversees customers)

The Sweden based company Gamia games started its Kickstarter campaign for Bardagi – The claim for Gold in the end of September. The game got funded in the first 24 hours and now new stretch interesting goals are being unlocked. The game was introduced at Spiel 2015 in Essen Geramany and it received great feedback and general joy.
Bardagi – The claim for Gold is an area control, resource management game, with a dash of fighting and adventure feel. The backstory is that the Vikings homelands are depleted of all resources and the high Jarl sends out a group of Clans to locate new lands. The clans come to a group of islands that are full of natural resources, but the only problem is that the islands are occupied by barbarians. The area is to be overtaken through any means possible, that being through trade, convert or direct conflict. The clans try to overtake the resources and gold mines to gain glory points from the Bardbarian tribes and eventually also from the other Clans. You have Berserks, traders and priests to aid you in your task but the only question is if you have what it takes to gain the most glory for your actions!
