I'm sure alot of us noticed. But how would our dwarves know of it since (If I remeber right) he just grabbed it a while after the fact and it could have easily been mistaken for his journal?

EDIT: Ok, I can't get the revission to look how I want it.Here's an older drawing, by a month or so. Came out more animeish/cartoony (whichever term you prefer) than the more recent stuff which is why I was hesitant to put it up. Had to sift through PMs for the link since I didn't feel like dredging it out of tinypic.
Armor was cobbled together from a combination of Imperial Guard flak armor and A starcraft Ghost's full bodysuit and armor. Enjoy. Vanya is now removed from the poll at last!



Keep your comments on things that are wrong with it to yourself folks, I'm struggling to get myself to draw as it is.

I'll try to finish Reudh before I go to school today, if I don't fall asleep soon, and post him along with Talvi.

Yes, I most definitely plan on helping out with any recording we do, if at all possible. lol    And yes, Mr Frog, you're right, I was incredibly tense. You can tell from my loud, higher-pitched voice, my rambling, and the constant rapid subject changes.

On that note, both Splint and Mr Frog sound awesome, in my opinion. Mr Frog, curious - is that how deep your voice normally is? That's a lot lower than I normally talk. lol   If I'm not tense, I can match how deep you were there, though. :P I did a lot of off-mic practice yesterday, trying to learn to relax myself, like you said... I'm not sure how far I got towards that becoming a reality. I'll probably just freeze up again the second I turn my mp3 player on. :P  But no, really - you sounded awesome. And Splint, the laughing fit doesn't seem to be very readily apparent. :P  I did have to turn up the volume quite a bit to hear you, though. Your voice sounds great too. :)

We've got a lot of potentially good voice actors, then, if we count Xahnel.  I think we're actually going to manage something. :D
(I've still got a page or two to catch up on, just posting my thoughts so far)



edit: Yep, people expected my voice to be a lot deeper.  ::) I tried, it just wound up really high-pitched from being nervous. (I still don't know why I was nervous.) My voice is typically lower than that. An odd thing about my voice is that it sounds higher pitched even when I go deeper for some reason, because you don't hear any of the added stress you typically hear from people who go lower than they normally do. Instead of that, my voice just gets quieter. :-\ I don't know if that made any sense.

I can't hear yours, Draconik. :-\ Maybe increase your mic's recording volume?

@Tomio: I found your log hilarious. "Now, it wouldn't be that bad, if it wasn't for the Spawn. They're completely...  ...   annoying." :P As to Vanya being a "little bitch"... lol   She didn't see the shark, though... instead, I said there was something hidden under a canvas in a corner, being deliberately vague (I love being vague. Solves so many problems). She won't say anything.



And now... a weird bit of story. Written at random... I'll need to proofread it later. For now, just enjoy the misspellings and duplicate/missing words. Or do as Hanslanda does and turn it to punny humer.

I've actually already written a short piece by the guy before every Vanya entry. :P That's the italic bit at the beginning. I'm going to continue Vanya's story, but I needed to make the second-person narrator a little bit more concrete before I could. That's what the above story bit is. It actually takes place before "Dr. Urist Jones" (I pity whoever misses the reference) begins reading. Thus, far, far out of order. It belongs back in June somewhere.

dit: And no, this (and possibly a couple others) should be the only ones that are this long.

edit2: I forgot the "e" in "edit" above. Now that I've taken the time to bring everything up and post this, I think I'll leave it. It looks funny. Hooray for typos.

Talvieno, you could do let's plays on youtube. You've got what's called a "Cozy Voice For Catastrophes".
Mr Frog, are you the movie announcer guy?
Splint, you sound like you'd make a good stand up comedian.
And now.

An odd thing about my voice is that it sounds higher pitched even when I go deeper for some reason, because you don't hear any of the added stress you typically hear from people who go lower than they normally do. Instead of that, my voice just gets quieter. :-\ I don't know if that made any sense.

I have this issue sometimes, as well. I think a large part of it is maintaining proper airflow; whenever I lower my voice, I seem to need to speak with quite a bit more force than usual in order to get a good sound out. It's all in the diaphragm. (Yes, I have been looking for an excuse to use 'diaphragm' in a casual conversation.)

Mr Frog, curious - is that how deep your voice normally is? That's a lot lower than I normally talk.

I think so -- and yes, that is a weird thing to say.
    I may have been subconsciously trying to lower it, because I'm kind of insecure about how I sound, but I wasn't really trying to disguise my voice. Then again, however, I was pretty nervous as well, which means I may have been speaking higher than normal. It's a very very close approximation of how I normally speak, at least (I did do multiple takes, though -- I'm not nearly that consistent in normal conversation :p).
    I suppose that the upshot to all this is that now, whenever I post a panicky flounce like the following:
Okay, probably best to lay this out straight: I volunteered to do voices on an impulse (sugar rush ftw), without really putting much consideration into it. I'm not sure how serious everyone is about building on this idea (I hope something does happen, really; it sounds like it'd be cool), but please do not count on my involvement if anything happens. If it turns out that I'm needed, please do ask by all means, but it seems shortsighted of me to promise I'll be capable of following through, given my track record with this sort of thing. We'll just have to wait and see.
You will hear the whole thing in a gravelly baritone. And that is the sort of gift that never stops giving :p
    In the interests of full disclosure, I used to speak in a much higher tone until about last February, when I accidentally slipped into the lower register I use now and decided I liked it better. For what it's worth, I think it's how I should have been speaking from the start -- I couldn't raise my voice at all before then, nor could I really alter the pitch (recordings of my voice from back then sound very flat). That's actually why I recommended Splint try speaking from his larynx more -- he sounds a lot like I did before, so he might be making the same mistake I was making.

Xahnel's voice. That also threw me off. Now I want to give a voice, if I had a mic. Damn.
