Strange Idea – Who would give Karzoug a voice ?


Rise of the Runelords

51 to 76 of 76 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | next > last >>

While I applaud Tbug's efforts, I generally think of Karzoug as being a little more...ruthless sounding, if that makes any sense. He should have a voice that is both quiet and threatening, one that demands that you listen closely to hear what he has to say. Matthew King's voice for Illidan in WarCraft III is pretty much what comes to mind for me, although maybe that's just the "ten thousand years" thing reminding me of him.

I'd record my own take on Karzoug, but I doubt that my actual delivery is anywhere near as cool as it sounds in my own head. Ah well.

so here is my usual bi-monthly question:-)

tbug,
any news on your mic?
Can we hope to hear Karzougs voice again anytime soon?

My second group played through burnt offerings, your work was used for the second time with great effect
Thank you again, also from my players !!!

Only that I have a new microphone. :)

These are over-the-top melodramatic, like the others.

Ah, thank you very much Tbug

Great work as always !
The ending of kzg5 seems a bit sudden, but I really don’t want to complain
Thank you for bringing Karzoug alive for my groups


I've always heard Bill Nighy's voice from Karzoug (Underworld, pirates of the Caribbean, etc)

Aww, these aren't hosted anymore. Does anyone have the files hanging around that they can post somewhere?

Wow, what a necro'ed thread. Anyway, I've actually been working on a "Karzoug voice". I imagine his speaking style is a little more staccato than most modern people.

As a trial run, I've recorded his monologue from the end of Fortress of the Stone Giants. If people like it than I'll do more. The link is mediafire at the moment. If people would rather I use a different file-sharing site let me know. So without further ado, here it is:

Mokmurian's Final Gasp
Note: I didn't include the "cruel mocking laugh" since this is a trial run and I didn't want to overdo it right away.

Second, I've actually been working on developing an actual language for Thassilonian. It's not fully-developed, not even close. But I figure Karzoug isn't actually going to address the party in Common so it's only appropriate that there is a Thassilonian version of his monologues. Also, not every adventuring party speaks Thassilonian. So for groups without a translator, here you go:

Mokmurian's Final Gasp - Thassilonian

Let me know what you guys think. I'll take feedback of any kind.

Cheers,
Tony

Awesome job. Personally, I envision Karzoug's voice to be not quite as deep. I think of someone like Hugo Weaving.

The Thassilonian version, on the other hand sounds chilling. This is what I envisioned for the Rune Giant. Keep it up!

What language did you use as a base for Thassilonian?

Yknow, I was going to say Hugo Weaving as well. A quiet, calculating voice. Smooth like velvet and as dangerous as a blade covered with bees.

...what?

Earlier today I was pondering Valeros sounding like H. Jon Benjamin...

That or Patrick Walburton. Or Bill Paxton...

I imagined Karzoug to represent the worst/most dangerous qualities of Lex Luthor and Ming the Merciless, and to have Max von Sydow's voice.


Everyone seems to love Tbug's recording. Want.

Seconded! I'm about to start running Burnt Offerings and would love to have a creepy monologue on loop when they get to the transmission room.

I hear him sounding like Christopher Lee. He was Saruman the White.

I had no idea these were still in demand. Do the links work now? If the files are corrupted I can always rerecord, too.


Sadly, tbug, the links do not work. If you could upload them again, the community would be most thankful.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That's weird. I just reuploaded them.

checks site

Huh, the entire domain is down. Okay, this is a bigger job than I thought. Sorry.

Surprised no one's mentioned this: I personally think of Tim Curry's villain voice for Karzoug


Hah! "Reskin" Karzoug as Curry's character from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"...

I said it back in the "cast the Runelords movie," and I'll say it here.

Christopher Lee for Karzoug!

Andoran

I would actually choose Hugo Weaving as Karzoug. He has both the look and the menacing voice.

Sorry for me it's Christopher Lee


For me, the voice of Karzoug is Bill Nighy.
