CHARACTERS AVAILABLE FOR AUDITION

Karrav



NO
IMAGE
Name: Karrav
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
A half-vampire half-elf as well as the main character.

The kind of voice I am looking for is a bit difficult to explain, but here it goes; I'm looking for a voice that sounds calm and collected yet somewhat whimsical. Perhaps the closest existing performance I can think of is Chris Sarandon's/Danny Elfman's Jack Skellington, or Michael Crawford's Phantom of the Opera.

I would only like the last line to sound somewhat vicious, as if he is getting ready to fight.

Lord Crimson



NO
IMAGE
Name: Lord Crimson
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
The draconian king of Huikishin as well as the main villain. He appears fair and just at first but over time reveals his true nature. He is incredibly powerful, prideful and greedy and rules Huikishin with an iron fist.

I'm looking for a VERY deep booming voice, one that sounds evil and monstrous yet charismatic at the same time. It needs to sound commanding, menacing and threatening. Feel free to add some growls and roars if you really want to sell it, although that is optional.

Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"I am Lord Crimson, ruler of Huikishin. Now who are you and what are you doing in my land?"

"Take them to the dungeon and bring me their gold, I must have it!"
Line 3:
"What's the matter you insolent whelp, are you really this weak? You're practically on the ground dying while I'm just getting warmed up!"

Zoa



NO
IMAGE
Name: Zoa
Gender: Female
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Karrav's sister, she's a secondary villain who took the throne from Karrav back in their homeland. She cannot bear the thought of her brother still being out there so she does whatever she can to take him down, using every opportunity at her disposal.

For her voice, I'm looking for an elegant yet sly and sinister voice, preferably with a British accent.

Swarizar



NO
IMAGE
Name: Swarizar
Gender: Male
Age: Old/Senior
Characteristics/Notes:
A skeleton mage that Zoa brings back from the dead, he only appears by the end of the game but he will be the main villain in the sequel.

His voice should sound decrepit and high but not too high. He should also have a foreboding tone, much like Dennis Falt's Death from Symphony of the Night only more manipulative and subdued.
You need to be to audition. If you do not have an account, please click here to register.
Audition Lines:
Line 1:
"At last I am free from the dirt that had buried me so deeply, I can traverse the realm of the living once more and I have you to thank for it. Therefore I will fulfill the one request that you most desire."
Line 2:
"The orbs bring elemental balance to Huikishin, if they are ever taken from the tablet the land will be in a state of disarray and their powers will be at the wielders disposal, this will resolve both of our problems."
Line 3:
"She will never truly control me...but I will play along with her little game for now."

IMAGE
Name: Rashiro

Characteristics/Notes:
A dual wielding swordsman who initially works for Lord Crimson but later on becomes neutral. He is ordinarily chivalrous but in battle he is smug and can get angered easily at times.

An elderly shopkeeper who adopted Seth when he was just a child. While he is hesitant at first, he lets Seth join the heroes.

Quartermaster Bruno



NO

Characteristics/Notes:
Side-villain, he is the highest ranked pirate next to Captain Rai. He's notably a lot more calm and collected when compared to his captain.

Bogaruk (Knight Form)



NO
IMAGE
Name: Bogaruk (Knight Form)
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
A creature disguised as a knight. At first he has to be rescued from a volcanic island, but when Lord Crimson reveals his true nature, Bogaruk's true form is revealed as well.

Not really looking for anything specific here, just go for a tough sounding knight voice. I also want the third line to sound sinister.

Bogaruk (Squid Form)



NO
IMAGE
Name: Bogaruk (Squid Form)
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
Bogaruk's true form, he serves as the first boss and transforms into this when he is taken back to the castle.

For this character, I want an aquatic monstrous voice somewhat like a combination of David Wills' Arlong and a more threatening version of Alan Oppenheimer's Seaspray. Get creative with this guy just as long as you make him sound like an evil creature.

Yaromars the Guardian Turtle



NO
IMAGE
Name: Yaromars the Guardian Turtle
Gender: Male
Age: Adult
Characteristics/Notes:
A giant turtle who serves as the third boss, when the people of Huikishin are poisoned due to the tainted water supply, the Guardian Turtle guards the cure.

This character does not truly wish to work for Lord Crimson given the fact that he is constantly berated by him, so for this character I would like a deep rough and threatening sounding voice that can sound somewhat gloomy and sympathetic at times. As long as you can convey that aspect of his personality you should have a good shot at the role.

HELP
  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
• Why does my MP3 not upload?
We understand that some users are getting errors when uploading MP3 files. Certain encodings will not be compatible with the upload code. Originally Audacity saved MP3s worked at the time Casting Call was written. However the software may have changed the way it saves MP3s. At an unknown future time, the process will change where auditions will be recorded and saved directly on the site. In the meantime, please ask fellow members who have success with MP3 uploads how they are saving/encoding their files. Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience.
• 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.
• How do I contact members cast for a project?
You can contact members using Private Messaging feature available here in the forums.
