Appeal for voice actors
At the moment we have a few mission designers who want to add voice acting to their missions and campaigns. Voice makes a huge difference to a mission. Making it easier to play (you can concentrate on fighting instead of reading messages) and more immersive. There are a lot of interesting parts available ranging from major characters to one or two line bit parts. You don't need to have had any experience. All the voice actors who featured in Raider Wars were first timers. It really is very easy. All you need is a quiet room, a microphone, and a few minutes spare time.

If you would like to volunteer to help mission designers add voice acting to TBP campaigns please post a message in this thread. You do not need to post your real email address. Mission designers can contact you via personal mail here on HLP. Thank you.

We could use someone to do the mission briefing/debriefings for multi as well.  I already have a list put together. 
No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

contact Skullar and Madaboutgames. Both are searching for voice-actors for their campaigns.

Crap. I was supposed to do voice acting and testing for Heat 'em Up and then everything went nuts in Real Lifetm and now I can't even find a working Heat 'em Up website to try to get back on the internernals for the project.

Re: Appeal for voice actors
Ill report back later on the EACW.
For the Civil War teaser I could need a few actors as backup in case CHAOTARCH can't get the ones working on it report back. Its taking too much time anyway.

I'll be back later on that within the next days.

The roles for the BIG EACW itself are not yet ready for recording.
 
In case you are interested check this topic again in a few days. THX

Re: Appeal for voice actors
GENERAL APPROACH :

To make it easy for voiceactors , if they manage to get the recordings to the campaign authors, its sufficient !

The samples are processed anyway, so stick to a common format that maintaines high quality and does not take much space. Mp3s are always fine, but actually, it doesnt matter.
