I didn't suck as bad as I thought, then? That's a really nice thing to say.
Will submit more as soon as I can.

Man, I still need to set aside some time to plop myself in front of my mic and dig into some of these. :p

Gloire = GLWAR? (GLOY-er for an anglicization?)
Kyrematen = keer-REH-ma-tin?

I'd go with the Kyrematen one, but I think 'Gloire' is 'Glore' with a bit of an, er, twist.

...and a third batch of lines has been sent off.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha
[17:00] <battuta> hahahaha
[17:00] <RangerKarl> same thing really, if you think about it

I have submitted audition lines for 103rd Archers Flight lead, 2nd Fleet HQ, Nairobi Wind, Toreador Control, "My brother, my enemy" Beta 1, and Pesedjet Control for your review. What can I say, I have quite the ego, and a lot of time on my hands.  I've done some community theatre, but this is my first VO attempt, so feedback is welcome.

 If you are satisfied with any of the performances, I can re-record for quality control, alternate roles, or stage direction at any time.  I loved BP2, often found myself moved by it, and it would be an honor to play a role in its finalization, however small.

Good luck to everyone, this is going to take WiH to another level entirely.

Mr. Carl Crocker, your Captain Mence was pretty damn good. My one quibble was the pronunciation of Atreus. I think you went with a-TRAY-us, whereas it's more AY-tree-us.

Thanks, Iss asked me to try the Elder and Ran. Hopefully they were "adequate". I'm better with short lines and not so good with continuous long speeches (vocal reasons).

:)

Just sent off the line for the 103rd Archers Flight lead.  My first attempt at voice acting.  Any constructive criticism would be appreciated if possible.

Well, there goes a batch. I'm no Wendee Lee, but I do what I can.
Hopefully I won't run into gender confusions this time!

MP-Ryan, very professional, very understated. Nice work. You've got a bit of a background hiss; we can clear it up in Audacity but is it possible you have a fan or something going?

Thanks.

The fan is either the PC fans, or perhaps the wind outside as I had the window open and we had a bit of a storm going.  If you want me to submit any further lines, I'll try to make sure there's nothing going on... I can throttle back the GPU fan.  I use a desktop mic + headphones, which is good enough for in-game communication but does pick up more ambient noise than a headset.

That's going to be about it from me for lines though, unless you fellows have any particular requests of me.

I have a particular request: please do as many roles as you can!

:yes:
Sahb it is.
 
 
Regarding the Atrius, I agree that i've heard it pronounced as in Atrium,- Eight Ree Us, but I prefer and use Ah-Tray-Us, it just sounds meaner and more menacing.
 
If I were doing lines, i'd use it every time ;). Does Darius have a preference?

We've always used Eight-tree-us. That's the original Greek, I believe, so I think it's gonna stick.

Yep, Eight-tree-us is what we've been using. Other pronunciation would be for words like Atreides, where the spelling would suggest using it.
