      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

An idea I had for a project...

5 posts in this topic

Greetings one and all. I recently had an idea for a fan project that I've begun, though I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish it or not. I recorded readings of the flavor text from the Act I quests of Lair of the Wyrm, and would very much like to do the same with Act II, The Shadow Rune, and Labyrinth of Ruin, but first I want to make sure it's even viable. Because of this, some issues come up:

 

1) Is there even an audience for this? This is intended mainly for people who want to play as the overlord, but don't want to have to read the story segments aloud; everyone has different talents, and while I like to believe that oration is one of mine, I know that many people hate such things, but this shouldn't be a barrier that stops them from taking the role of overlord.

2) Is this legal? I know that FFG has gone out of their way to make sure that the quest guides are not made public; however, the readings only include the story segments, and include no information about quest setup, monster selection, special rules, or anything else of the like beyond what the story hints at.

3) How do I handle Eliza Farrow, Ariad, and Serena if I continue this project? I can't do female voices very well... I think I do well enough with Valyndra, but that's largely because I don't imagine that dragons would sound very feminine by human standards.

4) How do I upload attachments here? I see the "My Media" button which brings me to a screen where I can view my attachments, but I can't figure out how to actually add them. I'd very much like to give a sampling of what I've done thus far.

I'm sure there are some people who would be interested in it.  I'm not sure I would want to use a recording at the table myself, but I'd at least be interested to hear it.

FFG is usually pretty easy-going about letting fans do what they want, in my experience.  That said, you should definitely contact them to ask if they have any objections.  It's only polite.

The obvious solution would be to find a woman willing to do some voice work for you.  If you don't know any women into voice acting (or board games, or both) locally, you could always ask around online.  As long as they have their own recording equipment, they don't really need to be local.

 

I would personally seek permission from FFG before dragging anyone else into the project, though.

You can always upload the audio clips to something like soundcloud.com and post links.

 

Alright, I guess that works for the time being; if FFG gives me the go ahead, I'll upload them quest by quest to BGG. For now, I'll keep Gold Digger up here for streaming as a sampling of what's done:

Lair of the Wrym - Gold Digger - Opening

Lair of the Wyrm - Gold Digger - Valyndra's Challenge

Lair of the Wyrm - Gold Digger - Hero Victory

Lair of the Wyrm - Gold Digger - Overlord Victory

If I can get a proper mic, I would be willing to produce a lady's voice for you. Though I little rusty with my play acting, I think I might be able to pull something off.

 

I don't think we would play this at my table either, but it would be good for people that don't have good readers. One of my heroes does a great job! But had I not have him, this would look really appealing.
