1. http://www.skeptic.ca/Home_Page.htm The site is designed to promote Native
American beliefs but has a variety of subjects that con#icts with those beliefs. It is
also designed poorly, pictures aren’t aligned. The site has no contact information
which is rather surprising for a site with that much information.

formed may go on adventures together in order to beat tough opponents.
Expressive: You get to choose your character’s appearance and customize the
weapons the character uses.
