Re: LOOKING FOR ACTORS: Actually, for Fortune Hunters :-)
Wonderful, the more the better  :)

Do you people prefer one big script or mission-by-mission ones  ;) ?
Also, they will come in plain, primitive txt format to make sure that EVERY operating system mankind has ever thought of is able to read them  :lol:

Well, I’ve got a female voice. I have to get some stuff for Blue Planet done first, but if you want to send me some lines I can give them a try. West Coast American accent, 22 but can probably do older if necessary.

I would like to help too... however, since i'm just starting as a Voice Actor, i better can just do minor roles (1 to 3 lines i guess)

Re: LOOKING FOR ACTORS: Actually, for Fortune Hunters :-)
Everyone can voice act if he or she understands the story and really gets into it.
Casting will start in the new year. Will post the full script, some tutorials, instructions and a few selected casting lines.

I've decided today to remove most of the "this line should sound like ..." or similar descriptions of the emotional status from the script. I think it will work better as I usually do it, giving the actor full creative freedom to begin with, then developing the character with him or her together, although that was not necessary most of the time, since people seem to understand my characters and how I wanted them to be on a intuitive level.

May I ask one question?
Who here actually played the campaign?  :lol: Or has heard of it, before offering help?  :D

Not played it. I've heard of it, but no idea of the plot. But it should never affect my ability to play a required role.

All three at once.

Of course not, that's what a script is for. I was just curious.

I did the voice of the Xerxes XO in Relic, so if you think I could be of use give me a shout.  I'll check back here when you post the lines too!

Re: LOOKING FOR ACTORS: Actually, for Fortune Hunters :-)
FINALLY. Stuff should be uploaded soon.  :)
There's a instruction provided inside the zip. Read these first. I've selected a few lines for the casting. You can read about the entire context in the mission scripts of course.

Main character casting lines:

Phantom:
2259_M2 (Hunters just survived the arrival an unexpected rival for a disabled transport vessel):
Yeah, run you cowards. I still don't know why you came up with this insane idea of bullying us!

2259_M5 (the Hunters are staging a raid on a convoy. Instead of surrendering, the convoy has ordered its escort to attack):
-Sigh-  Again, we are in for some killing to make a living, boss. I miss the times were we fought to save people instead for cargo.

2261_M12 (final fight of the campaign, enemies are everywhere, the situation pretty much hopeless and the ultimate goal is to allow a civilian ship to escape. If they fail, mankind itself may be in danger!):
Hey love, about that marriage thing...  eh, considering the amount of enemies here I guess it wouldn't hurt if I was a bit more open to the idea after all...

Spark:
2259_M3: (The Hunters are arriving at a friendly raider port, greeting a few old friends)
See you later friend, friend. I'll meet you in about one hour on the Turtle, old Spark will tell you a tale of great heroes and evil Narn.

2260_M3: (Hunters have just learn from a defeated freighter escort pilot that an old enemy is in charge of the security forces they just stole a transport from. Microsoft is a Mega-cooperation in the future, yes  :lol:)
Archer? Ronald Archer? Oh please...    So he works for Microsoft now...       ...don't get mad now, Boss, wait until we are finished here.

2261_M11: (A mission starts, the Hunters have deployed multiple wings and the individual vessels start to move towards their objectives.)
Alright, we'll light up the engines too then. Our jump drives are charged, just yell and we are there.

FH1 and FH2 (same lines)
2260_M4 (an old rival has just decided to enter the battle himself. The player character is going to duel him):
I guess you want that guy for yourself, Boss? OK, we are bugging out...

2261_M2: (scared civilians are fleeing from a doomed system, the Hunters are trying to buy at least a few of them some time. The pursuing Vorlon Vessel is relentless and pretty much unstoppable.)

The Vorlon Dreadnought won't be able to intercept all civilian ships before they reach the gate, I guess we will see fighters shortly. Your orders, Boss?

2261_M10: (a fellow Hunter, a friend, has been shot down.)
Beta 3 is down, 3 IS DOWN!

Cobra:
2260_M9: (Spark has just noted that Cobra has become a lot less agressive lately)
Don't try me, Spark!

2260_M10: (the Hunters have managed to destroy a almost invincible and relentless pursurer)
JIJIJIJIJAAAARG - WE RULE! THE HUNTERS RULE!

2260_M11: (all are exhausted, on the run for months and the end is probably close. The silence is disturbing, a enemy could jump at our heros and lots of innocent others at any time)
Boss, ahem...   ...it's just...   ...well, I wanted to thank you for letting me join back then. I could not imagine being somewhere else. Or what I would still be...

HH:
2259_M3: (answer to Spark's question how things are going on HH's raider port)
Business as usual, at least one black market dealer is here at any time and we get two or three Raiding Parties every month. Last visitors were the Ratda, Vree Raiders from the Alzeral system. You and the Daring Devils are on approach vector.

2260_M1: (the Hunters pay HH a visit and have just arrived at his raider port)
Hey! Somebody on sensors?  You're the first visitors in four weeks! Identification please?

2260_M7: (the player character beat HH's challenge by creatively hiding himself)
OK Ace, you cheated but you didn't break the rules...  ...I count that as a victory.

Niset:
2260_M2: (Unknowns are attacking! Her answer to "Is that their name? Shadows?")
That's what they are...

2260_M11: (Niset's vessel has just saved a refugee convoy, including the Hunters, from a overwhelming enemy)
I know this spirits...     ...these strings, webs, I remember these minds...      Am I talking to the Humans who call themselves Fortune Hunters?

2260_M3: (at the eve of the biggest battle in the history of the galaxy, a battle that will decide the fate of species. Everybody is convinced that they are going to die. Niset however, she "hopes")
You should know one thing. Your past, the little part I know about, does not matter to any of us here. What matters, are the choices we made and that the path that lead you here was of your choosing.

First post updated.    Vidmaster goes into waiting-mode  :)

Can I get a little creative freedom regarding grammar when I record? I'll include a text transcript with each.

Freedom with GRAMMAR?  :confused:    Creative freedom is not only allowed but wanted, but why creative freedom WITH GRAMMAR?
The lines in FH are the product of three years of constant changes and should only be modified by the voice actor if he or she feels it is absolutely necessary. Still, they are not written in stone. I am ready to accept every change that ADDS to the atmosphere or experience.


Oh by the way: If you encounter some strange B5 term and are not sure how to pronounce it, just ask me or look on youtube or something. In general, got a question, just go ahead and ASK!

Because portraying a character with a regional dialect or accent may require corresponding changes to grammar to ensure veracity.

I don’t know what Dekker actually has in mind, but that’s the first reason that occurs to me.

Friend, friend.

 
There are a few 'we will' mixed with 'they're' style contractions.  I'm just not a fan of mixing both in the same sentence. I'm happy to be uniform in my portrayal.

EDIT- I've got the script, i get the feeling i'm gonna try for Spark :yes:


Edit2
@ Rian, spot on :yes:

@Vidmaster, pm sent.
