    The Dwarves is a game that came out of a Kickstarter campaign, and it's absolutely the type of success you'd hope for as a gamer. It's a fun game with a really good story, thanks to a solid adaptation of good source material. It looks good and it sounds good, and my few frustrations with menu controls and a couple of battles I had a hard time surviving really don't diminish my appreciation for the game as a whole.

    The Dwarves feels too much like a project still in development to receive a higher grade. The best thing about it, however, is the franchise's future potential.

    The story, the characters, the setting... everything that surrounds The Dwarves is really good, but its gameplay and its length aren't that extraordinary. Still, it is a very enjoyable adventure.

    THQ Nordic and King Art Games bring us The Dwarves, an RPG adaptation of Markus Hetiz’s novels that, despite good ideas, doesn’t live up to its source material albeit its entertaining story.

    Offers a unique and enjoyable experience that straddles the lines between RPG, movie, and novel, and delivers a satisfying fantasy adventure. However, the many technical glitches can be frustrating, and the dull combat and noticeable lack of meaty RPG gameplay elements will turn off players looking for a richer gameplay-focused experience.

    Even though the setting is interesting and the overall atmosphere is beautiful some serious gameplay issues along with the terrible A.I. and the poor graphics make this game a missed opportunity.

    There are times when it looks like there’s a much better game trying to claw its way free from the technical and design issues that plague it, but they’re only fleeting glances at what could have been before it gets overwhelmed by the muck dragging it down. Fans of the books it’s based on might get some worth out of The Dwarves, but when compared to pretty much any other half-decent RPG on the market, it comes up short in almost every possible way.

    I absolutely love Peppa Pig !!! I understand people can think she is annoying . Are there annoying people in the world ?! Yes absolutely. It’sI absolutely love Peppa Pig !!! I understand people can think she is annoying . Are there annoying people in the world ?! Yes absolutely. It’s realistic. So you never called your parents fat? Honey I highly doubt it , it tells us about exercise and eating vegetables because obesity can cause severe problems. My cousin for example was highly obese and she needed to have surgery removing part of stomach. Is that preventable ?! Absolutely. It’s good to show that even to children . They need to learn since little about disabilities also. Peppa also has an episode about a girl in a wheel chair . That is brilliant!!!! They completely read my mind about what I think children should learn.I recommend to everyone and children . It doesn’t teach bad behaviour. People are a bit silly and they have to understand is a cartoon and the characters are ANIMALS .I find that show awesome and next year will be my 30th birthday, can really say is one of my favourite shows . Teaches us about British culture that is something rare to find cartoon wise .Children should watch it . Parents nowadays need to chill . When I was a kid there were crazy cartoons showing even violence and stuff like that . This one is very relaxing. I absolutely love it . Highly recommended.

    I LUV THIS SHOW. ALL MY FRENS LOVE IT TOO. I WANNA ME PRESHUL TO BE LIKE PEPPAS. PEPPA PIG IS DA BEST.
    PEPPA PIG REARLEATES TO MEH A LOT AND DADY PIG LIKE ME DADY. ME DADY VERY FAT 900 POUDZSSSS LIKE DADY PIG.
    PEPPA PIG 100 SATAR LIKE BEN AN HOLLI. I LOVE DA PINK IT FITS WITH MY FACE. BTW IMMMA BOI. I HAV CRUSH ON MR DINOSOR AND TEDI THEY ARE SO COOL. TEDI SO HOT. MR DINOSOR AN TEDI ALWAYS PRETEN TO BE STATUE SO COOL EH? RIGHT? I GOOTTA GO. MY MOM IS COMING. I HAKEDZ HAR COMPOOTAR BAI! ;)

    Misty Mountains
    Far over the Misty Mountains cold
    To dungeons deep and caverns old We must away, ere break of day To seek our pale
    Misty Mountains
    Far over the Misty Mountains cold
    To dungeons deep and caverns old
    We must away, ere break of day
    To seek our pale enchanted gold

    The dwarves of yore made mighty spells
    While hammers fell like ringing bells
    In places deep, where dark things sleep
    In hollow halls beneath the fells

    For ancient king and elvish lord
    There many a gleaming golden hoard
    They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
    To hide in gems on hilt of sword

    On silver necklaces they strung
    The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
    The dragon-fire, on twisted wire
    They meshed the light of moon and sun

    Far over the Misty Mountains cold
    To dungeons deep and caverns old
    We must away, ere break of day
    To claim our long-forgotten gold

    Goblets they carved there for themselves
    And harps of gold, where no man delves
    There lay they long, and many a song
    Was sung unheard by men or elves

    The pines were roaring on the heights
    The wind was moaning in the night
    The fire was red, it flaming spread
    The trees like torches blazed with light

    The bells were ringing in the dale
    And men looked up with faces pale
    The dragon's ire, more fierce than fire
    Laid low their towers and houses frail

    The mountain smoked beneath the moon
    The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom
    They fled the hall to dying fall
    Beneath his feet, beneath the moon

    Far over the Misty Mountains grim
    To dungeons deep and caverns dim
    We must away, ere break of day
    To win our harps and gold from him!
    The wind was on the withered heath But in the forest stirred no leaf There shadows lay be night or day And dark things silent crept beneath The wind came down from mountains cold And like a tide it roared and rolled The branches groaned, the forest moaned And leaves were laid upon the mould The wind went on from West to East; All movement in the forest ceased But shrill and harsh across the marsh Its whistling voices were released The grasses hissed, their tassels bent The reeds were rattling--on it went O'er shaken pool under heavens cool Where racing clouds were torn and rent It passed the Lonely Mountain bare And swept above the dragon's lair There black and dark lay boulders stark And flying smoke was in the air It left the world and took its flight Over the wide seas of the night The moon set sail upon the gale And stars were fanned to leaping light Under the Mountain dark and tall The King has come unto his hall! His foe is dead, the Worm of Dread And ever so his foes shall fall! The sword is sharp, the spear is long The arrow swift, the Gate is strong The heart is bold that looks on gold The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong The dwarves of yore made mighty spells While hammers fell like ringing bells In places deep, where dark things sleep In hollow halls beneath the fells On silver necklaces they strung The light of stars, on crowns they hung The dragon-fire, from twisted wire The melody of harps they wrung The mountain throne once more is freed! O! Wandering folk, the summons heed! Come haste! Come haste! Across the waste! The king of friend and kin has need Now call we over the mountains cold 'Come back unto the caverns old! Here at the gates the king awaits His hands are rich with gems and gold The king has come unto his hall Under the Mountain dark and tall The Wyrm of Dread is slain and dead And ever so our foes shall fall Farewell we call to hearth and hall! Though wind may blow and rain may fall We must away, ere break of day Far over the wood and mountain tall To Rivendell, where Elves yet dwell In glades beneath the misty fell Through moor and waste we ride in haste And whither then we cannot tell With foes ahead, behind us dread Beneath the sky shall be our bed Until at last our toil be passed Our journey done, our errand sped We must away! We must away! We ride before the break of day!

    Introduction

    If there is one thing I want you to remember from these writings, its that the birthrates must change. Even if we were to deport all Non-Europeans from our lands tomorrow, the European people would still be spiraling into decay and eventual death.

    Every day we become fewer in number, we grow older, we grow weaker. In the end we must return to replacement fertility levels or it will kill us.

    To maintain a population the people must achieve a birthrate that reaches replacement fertility levels. In the Western world this is roughly 2.06 births per woman.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_and_dependencies_by_total_fertility_rate

    There is not a single Western country, not a single white nation, that reaches these levels. Not in Europe, not in the Americas, not in Australia or New Zealand. White people are failing to reproduce, failing to create families, failing to have children.

    But despite this sub-replacement fertility rate, the population in the West is increasing and rapidly.

    How is this possible?

    Mass immigration and the higher fertility rates of the immigrants themselves are causing this increase in population.

    We are experiencing an invasion on a level never seen before in history. Millions of people pouring across our borders, legally. Invited by the state and corporate entities to replace the White people who have failed to reproduce, failed to create cheap labour, new consumers and tax base that the corporations and states need to thrive.

    This crisis of mass immigration and sub-replacement fertility is an assault on the European people that, if not combated, will ultimately result in the complete racial and cultural replacement of the European people.

    To see this in full effect, you only have to look at the population statistics for the year 2100.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_fytyre_population_(United_Nations,_medium_fertility_variant)

    In 2100, despite the ongoing effect of sub-replacement fertility, the population figures that the population does not decrease inline with the sub-replacement fertility levels, but actually maintains and, even in many White nations, rapidly increases.

    All through immigration

    This is ethnic replacement.

    This cultural replacement.

    This is racial replacement.

    This is White Genocide

That being said, the choice making is thrilling, and the plot keeps you glued to the screen. If you are a fan of fantasy you will love The Dwarves. It is no big production, but it is quite good for a kickstarter game from a small company. Also, for those who are power metal fans, the soundtrack by Blind Guardian is amazing. Strongly Recommended.

It's obviously story-driven but... I don't really like the main character and I'm only barely entertained by the story. Besides choosing what direction to walk in, I don't feel like I have much choice in anything.

    I don't think I could recommend it to anyone.
