The Grand Audition 2: The Official Contest

It's getting to be that time again. TCB is coming just around the corner and with a whole new zany cast of characters, Erik is running out of actors, fast. So guess what's happening? No! They aren't going to hire sea monkeys to play the extra parts! They're going to turn the auditions into a contest in the hopes that you'll be happy!

The Grand Audition 2

You've seen the mysterious topics on the Contest boards, right? Well, I bet they won't be too mysterious soon! You know why? Because I'm going to tell you! Those topics give you the lines you'll be voice acting! Surprised? No? Well aren't you all smart and mighty all of a sudden?! No one could ever had seen through Erik's cunning master plan! Well, do you know the rules of the contest? Ha! Caught you there! Only I, the great lord Erik and other people know those! And now I'm not going to tell you them! See what being rude does? I bet you'll never be rude to me again! Nope, no begging, it won't sway me. HOW MUCH MONEY?! Okay, fine! Just had it over and I'll talk! Please? Pretty Please?

Rules

Well, ahem, now that you've shown your, uh, "repentance", I shall explain the rules!

1. Thou shalt Record as many of the lines you wish, but stick to the exact wording Erik has given you! Erik is not a forgiving master, he won't accept mistakes.
2. Thou shalt be able to to edit and process the recording you make, but only to improve the sound quality! You cannot and will not add special effects or alter how your voice sounds! Thou must be humble before the lord Erik and use your own voice!
3. Thou shalt not use any other format other than WAV, OGG, or MP3 files. It is recommended to use settings of 16bit, 44.1 khz, mono, but it isn't required. If you choose to put your offering in a WAV file, put the WAV file into a ZIP or RAR file to make it pleasing to him.
4. Thou are allowed to try out for as many characters as you wish, as many times as you wish! If you are just posting a better version of one of your old voices however, please try to edit your old post instead of posting a new one.
5. Thy entries shall be accepted unti the time of Local Time:11-18-2006 at 07:00 PM but after that, all bets are off.
6. Soon after that the holy polls shall be started. All the offerings shall be sorted into polls for each character, and voted against each other. Then the top three voices of each character will be put in a Master Poll and will fight for the title of: "Best Voice EVER" and the other standard prizes.

Awards and Aftermath

The standard prizes shall be given to the winners of the Master Poll, but that doesn't mean they get picked for the part! Oh no! You see, I'm not supposed to tell you about this, but since you paid me so well I'll be nice. Deep in the shadows, there's a secret organization, and they are watching. Yes, they will secretly judge your efforts to see if they match up to their standards. And believe you me, the 1st Auditioner's standards are VERY high! Did I just say his name out loud?! Oh no! I better hurry before they get me for breaking the contract! Uh, well, if they are very pleased with someone else's work, they're going to come to your home and take you to they're secret hideout. And there they are going to tie you up and torture you until you say the things they want you to say, and you'll be a part of TCB. Oh no! I hear them! They're coming! They're going to-

Ummm, Ezlo? forgive an old lady if she is being completely dense, but haven't we already done this? well some of us anyway?

I read the Words of the great lord Erik (all hail to him and bless his magnificence!) and I made my audio offering, to place humbly before him in obedience and awe, beseeching him that, in his infinite wisdom, he would look graciously upon me.

And verily, I was humble before the lord Erik and used mine own voice and suffered no format to be used saving only WAV, OGG, or MP3 files, hoping that mine offering would be pleasing in his eyes (and ears!) and that on the Last Great Day he will open the Glorious Dungeon in the Nine Heavens to me and I will see with mine own eyes the holy choirs of . . . . . .

Ezlo, do I have to do all of that again? :~(

Elf.

Nope, it's more of a: "We are turning what we already have into a contest, so if you've already made recordings, you are automatically entered."

You don't have to do another thing unless you want to make more entries. That help?

Oh. Fine. And then they told you to announce it since you already hosted the DtD contest and can be trusted to announce contests.

I suppose I might record a couple others just so I can say I participated in the contest knowingly.

Wait, what? No, no. I was just like "Okay, an announcement. Hey, it's Ezlo again! Oh, drat, it's just an official restatement of something already going on. Wait, then why'd Ezlo post it?"

And then I made the post.

Because I wrote that before Erik wrote the Audition rules, I didn't know that he was going to do that. Once he gave the go ahead to post the contest rules, I thought it was too funny to leave out. Sorry if it's confusing. -_-

Ezlo can you extend the deadline until either Sunday night or Monday? The Illumination is going out late, and I want to give people a last-minute chance to enter.

Certainly. Monday night it is.

I have a question? Would anyone mind if I made the poll a "Which is favorite" poll instead of a "Rate all these from 1 to 10" poll? It would be much easier on me. :blush

Depends on if you want to sort out ties or not.

I'll gladly sort out ties. I just don't want to be going there for a half hour for each character adding twenty or so "Rate out of 10s"

thank you and thanks to Ezlo too for extending the dead line! it was very funny to play around with my simple equipment to record the sounds. (i used the windows voice recorder to create some .wav-files and converted them with cdex. simple thing, but very funny!

my favourite sound (choosen from only my files!) is "Drokkendut" :yes
and i didn't make recordings for the Gossiper (this one should get a female voice i think) and the Pit Thing (i wasn't able to speach the text good enough - i feel a little disabled in english language... *g* and even the other takes are might sound also bad to you: let me thank you again for such good ideas to participate at this boards!

THIS IS A WARNING!

The entries shall be closed at Local Time:11-21-2006 at 12:00 AM

All entries posted after that for the sake of getting pulled for auditions shall not be accepted.

I will not be listening to each file to make sure if it is a different voice. I will instead list each one that has a different name. So if you have any double-named entries, change one so they both get accepted.

Thank you and good night.

Whew! Thats a lot of entries! Thank god we don't have to rate them 1-10! I like 'which is your favorite' better. I think I might actually listen to them all (I have a 5 day break from school after today) tell me if I'm crazy or not.:P Thanks for the ZIP files, Kevin!

After much trials and tribulations... and tiebreaker polls, the contest is now over!

In third place we have everyone's favorite UrAvgAzn...... UrAvgAzn!!! Congratulations UrAvgAzn! You win 25 rank points!

In second place we have the elegant, the charming, the lady I was just talking to backstage... Elfstone!!! Elfstone wins 50 rank points a nice invisible plaque to hang on the wall.

And in first place, we have the best voice actor of all, the annoying, the odd, the crazy person who did NOT win because I rigged the vote... BUNCHES!!!! Bunches wins 100 rank points and an item of her choice from the prize pile! (Please let it be TCB, please.)

That's it folks, the show's over. Make sure to mark your calendars for DROD 4.0's release, because I'm sure we'll be doing this again. Thank you, and goodnight.
