Here’s a small update with some minor tweaks and suggestions from the past few weeks. The main change is the addition of Ronja Monto’s version Wolves of Jorrvaskr, both to Alassea and as a random instrumental for the bards.
Marrying Alassea also comes with an additional requirement of taking her to the Temple of Mara and expressing interest in a relationship.
Ahem. Like I was saying, here is the amazing Ronja’s version of Giramor’s old song, which Alassea will play when prompted. It is great. Music to the ears, you might say, in the literal and figurative sense.
And of course, if you’re in the mood for more ear bliss, don’t forget to click on her name and subscribe to her channel. It is even greater.
It’s Wednesday, which means a new podcast for the three or four of you who enjoy them. This is the first episode of Open News and Talk, or Open NAT, hosted by Will Handford and Ronja Monto.
This show will tackle on news and controversial topics in video games, but the hope is to do it in a way that will be funny and entertaining even if you disagree with the things being said. Given Ronja’s passion for social issues and Will’s offbeat humor, pairing them was an easy choice.
In short, I think they’re both awesome, and awesome together.
For listeners on the go, here’s the downloadable track:
Now if I can just figure out why Youtube is being a dick right now. I just want to change the thumbnail, damnit.
Katie Votapka and Ronja Monto are working on their own NPCs, but they’ve decided to learn the CK to do it. This is probably the best way to go about, because no one will be as passionate about your project as you. However, if the learning curve is steep or if you just don’t have the time (re: lazy like me), then having the community here make your NPCs a reality is another way to go about it.
Finished patches can be found by clicking the Fan Patches link in the sidebar.
Lastly, here’s the first episode of Strings Attached, a music based podcast hosted by Anna Castiglioni (Amalee, Morndas) and Ronja Monto (Alassea, Mithril).
It’s much more chill than the previous show, something comfy to listen to as you go about your day. Hopefully it will give you a little more insight into the whole composition process.
Edit: Forgot the download link again, you can get it here.
Here is a song Ronja Monto is working on for an upcoming project that I may use in Interesting NPC’s, called Alva’s Song. I asked her if it was named after the vampire Alva, because I’m an idiot. It’s actually a quite common name.
For fans of Alassea, here’s Ronja Monto with a video version of her eponymous song. In it you’ll find her flute playing, harp strumming, wind basking and hair brushing like a boss.
I’ve had this in the works for some time, but between pollen allergies and broken headphones and bloated bellies it’s had to take the backseat.
I tried to make a pretty video, but it ended up looking like one of those ultra-cheesy 80’s ballad videos. It was even worse when the light was golden, like right out of “Never Gonna Give You Up.” Hopefully the song is okay though. Ergh.
What, 80’s ballads are the best. By failing to age gracefully, they’ve managed to somehow age well. The 1980’s have. Memes, not so much.
On a side note, there was a lot of site downtime today, but not my fault, at least not directly. I did choose the hosting service, however, and I can be blamed for that. Evidently going with the shittiest company on the planet has its downsides. This is what I get for being lazy and trusting WordPress’ recommendation. Never again.
