-Record in 44100hz 32-bit Float Mono MP3
-Save the lines as ds_njnpc_motkey_0001 etc

Name: Mother Keys
Age: NA
Bio: This wide half-orc woman is burdened with an impressive key-chain, hinting not so subtly at the origins of her nickname. She wears rich silks and velvets. Mother Keys' sausage-like fingers go with surprising ease through stashes of coins, gems and other finery. Less surprisingly, she handles crates, barrels and chests with equal ease. She greets those who are authorized to access the Temple treasury with a ready scowl, and those who are not - with a heavy cudgel.
Voice type: Commanding, sure of herself, strong. Mother Keys has no comic speech impediments.
Portrait: http://www.members.s...orion/ds_MK.jpg
The Total # of Lines: 20

Audition Lines:

ds_njnpc_motkey_0001: Waltzing in, are we? I'll have you know it's a treasury, not a ballroom.
ds_njnpc_motkey_0002: If Toral keeps sending your sort in, I'll get him to read the ledgers, and use my cudgel for emphasis every time he reads an article of credit.

I am looking for a relatively high initial quality of the sound. I only have Audacity, so cleaning up the files messes with the voice itself. In particular, pops are tough to clean out. I implore you to use a screen (a sheet of paper, a stocking on a hanger) to prevent the pop-ups. Also, please record on the low setting of the mike. Allow plenty of lead time before you start talking and allowing it to continue recording for a while after you have done speaking. If your line is more than one sentence long, allow an extra-long pause between sentences, drawing breath, if necessary. Hold the microphone far enough away from your face so that you do not oversaturate the recording. You can tell if it's oversaturated because the displayed waveform of the recording will look like it's got the tops and the bottoms of the waves clipped off.

Audition deadline April 5, 2008

-Record in 44100hz 32-bit Float Mono MP3
-Save the lines as ds_comnpc_nyale_0001 etc
-Send your auditions to domi_sotto@gibberlings3.net

Characters

Name: Nyalee
Age: 50-60
Bio: Disheveled and dirty, by turns muttering or cackling madly, Nyalee is the epitome of disreputable. Her powers are very real though, and cannot be ignored. Neither should a glint of staunch wisdom in her hooded eyes.

Voice type: A mad old hag, cackling is a must!

The Total # of Lines: 200+, you will need to work with me during a few month as I code to have everything voiced. If you can't make such a commitment, please, do not audition for this role. I'd hate to start revoicing it half-done.

Audition Lines:

ds_comnpc_nyale_0001 You is dead!
ds_comnpc_nyale_0002 He-he-he! //that's the mad cackling part//
ds_comnpc_nyale_0003 To me, woodsies!
ds_comnpc_nyale_0004 Your time has come. Time to die.

Audition deadline – May 1st, 2008

Name: Saemon Havarian
Age: mid-20ies to mid-30ies
Bio: At first glance Saemon Havarian emanates simplicity and sincerity. At second glance an attentive observer might surmise that both qualities are trained. A third glance will likely suggest that the previous suspicion was the result of paranoia.

Voice type: A flamboyant clever rogue
Additional info: Saemon has flirting with the female PC, so you will have a few romantic lines to voice.

The Total # of Lines: 200+, you will need to work with me during a few month as I code to have everything voiced. If you can't make such a commitment, please, do not audition for this role. I'd hate to start revoicing it half-done.

Audition Lines:


ds_comnpc_saemo_0058 I cannot say that I am <i>entirely</i> without respect for your most impressive Lord, but I have little tolerance for violence, if at all.
ds_comnpc_saemo_0059 I cheerfully foresee that our partnership will be mutually beneficial.
ds_comnpc_saemo_0060 I am a stalwart captain of commerce left precariously in the shallows by the intrigues of ill wishers.

Hi folks. I despared to get in touch with the original voice-actor, and the quality on some of the lines is just won't do. So I have to recast this VO work:

Total lines: 36

Audition deadline: May 25-th 2008.

Recording and Contact information -

Record in 44100hz 32-bit Float Mono MP3
Send your auditions to domi_sotto@gibberlings3.net

Character: Toral, the Mighty Evil Priest

I need someone who can talk in a foreceful, calm manner, on the lower side of the spectrum, and who can say some of the lines 'up', rallying a large crowd of disheartened devotees.

Here are the trial lines:

ds_njnpc_toral_0001 Do not despair! The Lord of Murder, our Lord, is not dead and he is not defeated while our faith is strong!
ds_njnpc_toral_0002 His blood still remains in the Winding Water, around Boarskyr Bridge, where He was slain.
ds_njnpc_toral_0003 His mortal progeny are coming of age and soon will die so He might live again!
ds_njnpc_toral_0004 The nightfall is coming, and it shall be ours to rule.

Character Info:

Gender: Female
Name: Imoen (as a girl)
Age: 8-10 yo
Bio: This girl is short, bratty, and quick on her feet. The waif has a skinny kitten accompanying her, and the two have a similar cautious and curious manner. She seems peculiarly unafraid for a kid wandering the ill-fated Forest of Mir.
Voice type: Girl's voice, very perky.

The Total # of Lines: ~20

Audition Lines:

ds_njnpc_imoenn_0001 Huh, ya scared me! Please, don't hurt me! I've been berry-pickin'. Ma family's really poor, and half o'em sickened, they can't get by without my berries.
ds_njnpc_imoenn_0002 Pish-tosh! Don't ya come any closer to me! I'm a great wizardess, Imoen the Magnificent, only in disguise, and that's my fearsome familiar!
ds_njnpc_imoenn_0003 Puff, growl at 'em!

Posted 27 October 2008 - 04:29 AM

Name: Khalid
Total Lines: 34
Age: About 20-30 in human years
Bio: Khalid is a tall and awkward young man, dark of skin, hair and eye. He has an anxious quality about him, suggesting that he could have a breakdown if pushed hard enough. He speaks softly, and gesticulates excessively to help make his point. While it is sometimes difficult to understand him, it seems to be a worthwhile enterprise for someone who is not so keen on finding out how good he is with his heavy curved sword.
Voice type: It's a very tough role. The character stutters, but has to deliver a drammatic dialogue with a lot of anguish.

Audition lines:

ds_njnpc_khalid_0001 Your m-m-en are all dead, you m-madman. Drop your weapons and you'll be s-spared. //tired voice//
ds_njnpc_khalid_0002 D-do not mock dead enemies. Th-there are living ones we m-must face. //scold//
ds_njnpc_khalid_0003 I d-don't know how you sneaked your way p-past Jaheira -- //hesitatnt, worried//
ds_njnpc_khalid_0004 What? N-no! Attack! //upset, devastated//
