Description:
This mod adds a joinable NPC for Baldur’s Gate 2 – Enhanced Edition, Baldur’s Gate 2 and Baldur’s Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal. Liella is a human female bard of neutral evil alignment with very specific goals for joining the PC and his retinue (She will only join a male PC). She comes with an extensive, involving back-story, banters with every available NPC, a large number of her own banters and commentary, a plethora of unique cut scenes as well as an extensive set of Player-Initiated dialogue choices, area comments and quest interjections.

This is a very ambitious project - the character's writing alone spans several hundred pages worth, at this stage more or less proofed, checked and optimized for flow. The character and her story was conceptualized by the two main writers of the mod - the goal was a "novel in game-form" (Think Planescape:Torment), and we feel this has been achieved to some degree.

The mod itself is at this stage, almost finished. The code, dialogue, testing and debugging is wrapped up. What we need at this stage, before the release, is a voice actress(es) to lend her voice to the Mod. The preferred candidate would have a suitably flexible voice, somewhat high-pitched with a somewhat "standard" American -English accent and a pleasant lyrical quality – if you consider yourself an apt singer, you’d be perfect!

Please do not apply unless interested and able to dedicate some time to it - this will be an ongoing project for the next few months, and unless we can get everything needed from one person we like, we're not going to use the voice recordings. Keep this in mind when applying - if you think you might be on hiatus for some time, please do not apply.

* Lines voiced are flexible, though the more the person is able to voice, the better (of course). As a minimum, we would like to voice initiatory dialogue lines, command lines and initial comments on banters , interjections and flirts. This would come to a few hundred lines - quite extensive, but there's no real deadline.

* Unlike other mods, the mod will be released for both the game and expansion at the same time - if you're a fan of the game series or familiar with them at all, that's a big bonus!

* 18 years or older, of course.

* Deadline is as soon as possible, but we understand if this ends up taking a while.

* This is an indie mod, so payment is not really budgeted - but we are not discounting the possibility of a small payment when we're happy with the project. However, you should doing this for interest/credit/fun, NOT for payment as we cannot guarantee the size or delivery of the payment.

These mods and this game does have a strong cult following, and upon finishing and inclusion of the material in the mod, you would be fully credited. Your voicing would be heard, and appreciated, by a large audience and the mod would be played potentially by tens of thousands of players over the coming years.

We're also looking for a voice actress to lend her voice to a smaller role to the project - a Succubus. The number of lines for this role are limited and for this character we'd like a somewhat more mature-sounding actress able to pull off experience, poise and elegance.


If you'd prefer to submit your lines via email, please compress your files into Mp3 and send them to the registered Gmail account.

Thank you, and have a wonderful day!

--UPDATE--: The character of Saszira has been cast. Due to the fact that we received her submissions via email, we decided to simply remove the character from the project page here to avoid confusion and avoid people submitting auditions unnecessarily. Thank you everyone who submitted!

CHARACTERS AVAILABLE FOR AUDITION

Liella

Liella
Name: Liella
Gender: Female
Age: Young Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
(See the project description for full notes on Liella). No need to voice the CHARNAME part - that's part of the code and will be replaced by the name of the player - we left it in to clarify where the name will go.

Accent: Little to no accent - if anything, the merest hint of a southern drawl would be perfect, but not necessary.

Line1: Angry with a clumsy waitress who's broken a bottle of very expensive liquor she went through great lengths to acquire for the protagonist.
Line2: Curious regarding the protagonist's past and his family, of whom the party members often speak in hushed whispers.
Line3: Lustful and bemused after being asked her preference in men - considering the Protagonist a match for her desires.

"[Angry] Stay out of this, CHARNAME ! You're as clueless as this cow if you think she can simply repay this bottle."
Line 2:
"[Inquisitive, Curious] So, CHARNAME. This man I keep hearing about, Gorion. Your foster father? Your only family, apart from your half-sister?"
Line 3:
"[Flirtatious] Broad shoulders, strong arms... a good pair of hands and the knowledge of how to use them."

  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.
