At this point, we are ready to call the script for Treacle Stew finalized, and so there's no sense in waiting - time to ask for some voice auditions! Much like the previous times we asked for help with The Second Sky, Gunthro and the Epic Blunder, and even the new voice of Beethro that brought us Snacko to help with our other Smitemasters' Selections, we'll be reaching out to the community for some talent, but also asking you to feel free to forward this to any other voice actors who would be fine helping out with bit parts.

As usual, if we like your recording, the Caravel Team will be shoulder-tapping you. If you are selected, you will get access to our Sound Assets private forum, be featured in the list of contributors and also receive a free copy of the Smitemasters' Selection when it is released!

Consider this a good sneak peek at the script!

====

Beethro Budkin

Our current plan is to reach out to Snacko to see if he would be interested in reprising this role, but feel free to audition for this role, too! This is a large one with probably over 70 lines.

====

Vonnifa Budkin

Yes, after some discussion back and forth we would like to include Vonnifa briefly in our story, both to ensure she's included without awkwardly avoiding her in Dugandy, and to perhaps set her up as a character who could recur later. She is currently a short one-scene part helping establish the current situation at the start of the story.

====

Halph

Also present at the start of the story. We will be reaching out to coppro to see if he wants to reprise this role, but feel free to audition!

====

Various Tar Technicians

Of course, with the Forbidden Gel so central to the plot, Beethro is going to be talking to a lot of these people, with varying attitudes and helpfulness. Most of them are bureaucrats keeping their heads down, but some might know more than they're letting on...

====

Other Bit Parts

This is a surprisingly extensive script, the more I re-read it - I have to remind myself that this is still only a Smitemasters' Selection, not a full game. Nevertheless we definitely have plenty of roles to hand out, ranging from small numbers of lines to some longer scenes. I'll let you all speculate as to the nature of any of these.

Don't worry about any post-processing - we will likely only be doing a minimal, necessary amount of that, if any. Just record your voice, probably with some free software like Audacity or similar, and post it. Have fun!

For Vonnifa, I was trying to go for the kind of voice that the Monty Python guys would do whenever they engaged in cross-dressing.

I even included a couple of other famous Vonnifa lines, just to do myself a bit more justice.

I've attached a file containing a take or two of all the not-Budkin role lines posted above. I'd be happy with any part, but my Beethro is dubious at best and I think I'm rather bad at imitating a French ("Tuenan") accent, so keep that in mind.

Just thought I would demonstrate some versatility with a couple of the bit parts.

Question--I'm considering doing a part, and I want a more feminine role, but I don't feel confident to be the voice of Vonnifa (especially 'cuz she's such a core character). Are there any female extras? Would feminine tar technicians exist? This is kind of silly, I do recognize, but still.

Yes, we definitely can/do have female tar technicians or extras.

I think Chaco should do the first Tar Technician.

Just like in Finding the First Truth, I have set aside a "bonus" character in the postmastery section for myself, to offer a tiny bit of meta-commentary about the hold.

DROD 5.0 does have the new feature where entrance texts can be voiced over though, so maybe I could give that narration a try once we're recording in the Sound Assets forum and see what people think. That said I'm all too willing to give other members of the community more "air time" so they can show their stuff.

I was thinking about the voice acting in DROD, and I've decided that if Elfstone gets a part in this hold, you NEED to add in a joke about Beethro thinking the voice sounds familiar.

Hello folks! Sorry for the delayed update, things have been pretty busy in my neck of the woods (as they always are). I've got a status report for everyone.

* mrimer has kindly provided some legal forms to help make sure I can do all of this by the book, so I've started shoulder-tapping people to begin the inclusion process into the Sound Assets area.

* I've reached out to coppro and they have graciously declined the role of Halph.

* I haven't yet heard back from Snacko - if anyone else has any contact details for them, feel free to forward them my way and/or let him know about the project.

I'm happy to hear the great variety of voices available here, but there's only four volunteers at the moment, if I've counted right - I'd definitely like to see more! The roles of Beethro and Halph, cornerstones of the game, are wide open, so feel free to recruit your family, friends and/or enemies. We have several more bit parts than just the ones listed here, so the more the merrier I say.

--

Some tips to give out to people to help you all out:

* Try to give a second or two of silence at the beginning and end of your voice files - that will both make sure that you don't accidentally cut yourself off, and make it easier for me to do editing later on.

* Feel free to record multiple different intonations, voices, or, yes, accents, for the same lines. You don't have to go too far out of your way here, but I would like a general sense of what kind of vocal range you have.

* Make sure you enunciate clearly so I can hear the syllables. 'p', 'd', 'm' and 'n' sounds need some good volume to come through, and you'll need to be heard clearly over whatever background music DROD is playing.

Overall I think the quality is quite good, so if we can fill out the roster a little more I think we can put together a good cast.

Can't get Coppro, you say? Hmm, I wonder what Tyler Downing is doing these days.

That's because that one individual from the desert was used as one of the original clone templates.

Attached are a couple of clips of me auditioning if you'd like an English flavour to some of the characters in the SmS. Sorry for the delay, I've been pretty swamped this past week so only just got round to it!
