Call for alpha testers and voice actors...


Recommended Posts

Some of you may know that the reason this mod has taken ages (aside from lazyness) is that after moving it from the old FW to here, I got dissatisfied with the plot and started recoding from the ground up. After sitting abandoned for ages on my hard drive, I did a lot of stuff this week and now have a minimalist alpha version people can test. PM/reply here if you're interested...


I also have, currently, two voice roles to fulfil.


If anyone wants to have a go, send me a sample of a few lines and I'll let you know if they sound how I want them. wav, mp3 or ogg. :)


Ideally they would be performed by the same person but this is not essential.


The first is Elai's shadow. This should be a menacing, rolling male tone. Maybe use some special effects to make it sounds deep and follow. For this, I require the following three lines:


= ~At last, something aside from dull-witted peasants! Adventurer, I have a... proposal for you.~ [A#ELSH01]

= ~So, finally you decide to grace me with your presence. Do you have that which I desire?~ [A#ELSH02]

= ~If it is conversation you are after, I would prefer you consort with my *physical* form...~ [A#ELSH03]


The others (around 50 lines) are Elai himself. He is a young adult, brash and arrogant. He sometimes affects a slightly archaic manner of speaking, and is highly educated. He is normally calm and talks in a charming yet slightly patronising manner, but occassionally loses his temper.


For inspiration, think of a clever villain in a lot of films. Perhaps a younger Christopher Lee. Err, I can't think of any good examples offhand.
