We are a little tiny team of mod-workers with a lot of work ahead of us. We've been developing a mod that's mature enough to pass to this uncertain instance of looking for voice actors, but is not yet completely finished. The mod is a quest-mod, and adds locations, characters and items; it also works with a lot of scripting, which is my part, and lot of texturing, which is handled by my good, lovely partner.
The mod looks to introduce colourful and literary quests, full of diverse spectrums and tones; story's in which good and evil are never easily defined (as in real life) and with complex and human characters. We wanted to do this because Bethesda's quests are so boring and simple... *joke*.
No, seriously, we wanted to do this because, for old Oblivion players, such as myself, quest's are all done and the true joy is lost if an attempt of replaying the game is intended. This would add some quest's to the elderly and complement the game for the newbies.
See, we could find voice actors somewhere else, perhaps not through the web, but we are scripters and texture-workers from far, far lands, and english is not our native language. Adding the voices in another language would break the immersion, since all dialogs are in english by default. (How odd would it be to listen a greeting in english, such as 'how do you do!', approach to the character and suddenly hear him speak in dutch, german or spanish?)
The dialogs we want to be recorded all belong to quests, and most of them require a fine, expressive acting. You'll find happy, desperate, grim and lonely characters, and their emotions must be expressed in their voices.
We ALL work for free and only seeking the pleasure of creating gaming content: we CAN NOT afford to pay an actor, even less considering that the payment probably would have to be in dolars for an english actor. We look for people who love games and/or Oblivion and want to improve the game with a rich mod and, in the process, why not, perpetuate themselves through their beautiful voices in the game! This is how we work (and we work hard), so I know that it is hard work and money would be great, but so would it be for me and the rest of the team and we get nothing </3. So it is a not-payed, just-for-passion work.
Please, if we are lucky enough to find some dreaming souls such as ourselves, please talk to me through private message. Thank you!
