SUMMARY

The king is having a huge birthday celebration! Five days of dancing, festivals, and drinking, culminating in a grand masquerade ball. It just so happens that Rivian Varrison, the introverted son of a famous nobleman, is forced to attend this giant event by his father. By chance, or maybe something more deliberate, he runs into a host of colorful and shady characters, all with their own stories to tell. But when a sudden and mysterious crime happens on the second day of the celebration, Rivian finds himself thrown into the middle of it, and has to discover the truth behind what really happened -- and who the people around him really are.



SETTING

1600s-style royal feel, big and posh castle/estate in the middle of beautiful mountains, surrounded by wall, small festival area surrounding the castle exterior. Somewhat sense of isolation from the rest of the kingdom.



GENERAL THEMES

-Fantasy: 1600s style European outfits/technology, monarchy, nobility and peasants/servants

-Comedy: Dry, often sarcastic humor, often subtle and political. Refined, witty insults and banter.

-Drama: Sense of looming threats, uncertainty, mistrust, vengeance.

-Mystery: Anonymity, uncertainty of who’s guilty, sense of being watched, unknown motives

-Romance: General sense of romance from the environment (ball, dancing, etc), lots of characters like Rivian



ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

-This is a YAOI (boy x boy) game. Please be 18+ AND comfortable voicing H-scenes if you audition for RIVIAN, ARDEN, LINNAEUS, FRANZ, SABRE, or RAFAEL

-ADDITIONAL PAYMENT WILL be acquired when the Kickstarter exceeds its initial goal funding, so spread the word and get your friends to help support your voice acting career!

  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why is there a limit to 4 active projects per member?
While a project owner is welcome to have as many active projects running as they wish outside BTVA, the limit is imposed because having too many active projects can be somewhat "unrealistic". We want those who are auditioning to feel that each project is getting the attention and quality it deserves given auditioners themselves are putting in their own time and effort. Once a project owner flags a project as "Completed", they are welcome to create a new project.
• Can I audition more than once for a character?
The system is built to allow ONE audition per character. This is to avoid having a number of auditions from the same member and making the project owner have to listen to all of them. For now, if you or the project owner wishes you to submit another audition, the project owner will need to "Delete" your audition. The project owner can do this in the "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link.
• How do I flag a character as being Cast?
As a project owner you will see a "Edit Character/Manage Auditions" link for each character. Clicking it will allow you to Cast, Backup or Pass an audition. Casting a character will prevent new auditions from being submitted for that character.
• Why do I need a valid email address?
If you audition for a project and are cast in a role, you will notified by email.
