Scrying the Tea Leaves

urzubI am not entirely sure when I will post a new release, as Blauwvis is my only bug tester, and she can’t be everywhere at once. We are also still trying to finish this wiki and bug-sweep and add new content, but it can be tiresome. Some notes:

• The part of Morndas may require re-casting, as Kelly has a very busy schedule that may intervene. Will post the script up on Nexus soon.

• Just to talk about the difficulty of casting, I have not received one audition for Falatild, one of the chief protagonists of a 7-part questline. Not even a bad audition. A premier role with some decent exposure and nothing. So, I’m not sure what the timeline is for that being voiced.

• Apropos of the first two bullet points, I want to put a real-time script on this blog, as well as on the character pages themselves. Blauwvis is working on a FAQ as well, but she’s only one person and I am only one something or other. Man?

• Anyone who wants to contribute to the blog/wiki, send me an email at kristakahashi@gmail.com and I will add you as an author. Just adding tables, screenshots, and RefIDs is a big help. Seriously, we will take anyone. I’m not going to say sexual favors will be offered for your services, but I am strongly implying it.

• Following next release, I will probably offer loose file updates again. I think I am done tinkering with audio file names, which was the primary reason I kept the BSA as a whole.

• Since we are using loose files, missing audio or new audio will be added to the blog via posts on the front page as well as the character pages. Oh, and lookee here, it’s audio files for both RAYNES and ISOBEL.  Just look at the bottom right hand section of the table for the words Audio Files – Download on their respective character pages. Again, this is just an example of how loose file updates can be provided after the next release.

Lastly, here’s a teaser for the Brother and Keeper quest.

Trailers and Teasers – Reunald, Helcyon, Frygg

Despite the overabundance of male actors in the mod, there has been a paucity of male vocalists. So to rectify that, I plan on adding some more male bards to the taverns around Skyrim, although I haven’t decided on whether to make them jukeboxes or give them a full sheet of dialogue. This bard, whom I inadvertently named after a car, will likely be in Kynesgrove. Aaron Kelley is new to the mod, but will be voicing some key roles in the Blood of Kings questline. Barrett Leddy is another actor who will sing and possibly dance at Rorikstead’s Frostfruit Inn.

Another actor for the questline, Jay Appleyard, is also a new addition. We don’t know if he can sing yet, as I haven’t asked him, but we do know he can execute a creepy fortune teller voice with precision. Proof of which is in the video below for Helcyon, and to a lesser extent Frygg. 

In other news, you may have noticed the ReadMe is slowing filling out. This is entirely due to Blauwvis, who has tirelessly added new pages, collected RefIDs and made neat little tables for your perusal. Roarian has also volunteered to help clean up any broken links and errors.

Today was probably the least productive day I’ve had since the inception of the mod. I spent three hours watching baseball, and then stared at the clock for about five minutes trying to figure out if watching paint dry could possibly be as pointless as what I just watched. I did manage to get some real life work done, as well as add some audio and dick around with a new follower, NPC #139, albeit to be honest I lost count of how many “interesting” NPCs I made many moons ago, as opposed to NPCs just there to move along a quest. This one has a short little drama tied around his appearance, but there are some kinks that need working out before he can be released.

As you can tell, he’s an Orc. He has hair like Bob Marley. His name has two linguavelar stops. Perhaps I should have named him Nurgok and gone for the trifecta. As for the new voices, they are here for your viewing pleasure. If you are not pleased, then I suggest you make efforts to pleasure yourself. It always works for me.
