Strange Idea – Who would give Karzoug a voice ?


Rise of the Runelords

1 to 50 of 76 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | next > last >>

Karzoug has some great monologs in Burnt Offering, Fortress of the Stone Giants and Sins of the Saviors.
He is a really rememberable villain and these moments should be very dramatic highlights.
But I fear, if I just read them aloud to my players, well, they will be nothing special at all, just me, talking in my barely understandable English with German-Hessian accent.

So, while listing to the incredibly funny Goblin Song someone brought to the Community-Created-Stuff-Thread I got these really strange Idea:

Maybe somebody out here is up for the challenge?
Would you speak Karzoug’s monolgs for us and put the sound files in here?
Maybe someone with a commanding voice and some drama experience?
Pretty Please ??

Something like this?

You said drama, so I made it a little overwrought. If you like this (either as is or with less or even with more drama) I can rerecord it in better quality and do the other monologues too.

If this isn't to your taste then no hard feelings. :)

Now just add a little static to the beginning and the end, and a staticy overlay, and I think you'd be all set. :)

What do you need to play that file?


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

I just open everything in iTunes. Is it not easily readable? I'll see if I have some conversion software kicking around somewhere.

Cool, thanks. Not an iTunes user. ("Just say No" they told me). MP3's typically work :)

Heh, awesome tbug

thats cool work all them out


iTunes will let you convert unprotected .m4a files to .mp3. You should be able to find it under the Preferences/Settings > General > "When you insert a CD" button that says "Import Settings"

There you can set various different formats and qualities. Once you set the 'import' to mp3 you can right click on the song file and you should see a "Create mp3" option. It may say "Create AAC" if you haven't set it yet.

VLC of www.videolan.org will play most kinds audio and video files, assuming they are properly formated.

Haha! Awesome! I always imagined Jason Isaacs would play Karzoug in the film version, so if anyone have a voice like a scheming British villain, I'd love to hear some more takes for this sound test! Might make a cool download if we could get a few solid voice overs...

Andoran

Windows media player opens it just fine, if yours does not open it by default either select it from within the player or just choose it from the prompt when you try to open the file directly.

Taldor

That's really quite good that. (Also, I could open it in WinAmp)

Personally, I always imagined Karzoug with the voice of David Warner. Which you can hear in this clip of Baldurs Gate 2. Yeah, he's Irenicus.

RPG Superstar 2013 Top 8

My Karzoug always sounded like Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars. Flickering hologram, phantom menace... it worked. Especially as he flew around throwing out meteor storms and cackling "no, no, no, you will die!"

Taldor

Nicely done, tbug! But now we're waiting for the rest of his monologues, you know.

...I start Fortress of the Stone Giants this Sat, just sayin...


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

I'll try to get FotSG done today then. :)

There are only three Karzoug monologues, right? The third being at the end of Runeforge? Or have I missed one?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Cards, Maps, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

My Karzoug sounds like Xerxes from 300!

My Karzoug was greatly influenced by Daniel Day Lewis' portrayal of Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood. Aside from currently being my favorite movie, that character seemed to personify all-consuming greed, spitefulness, avarice with a seismic amount of rage bubbling just beneath the surface. God was it fun playing Karzoug like that. I'm SO glad he was just imprisoned at the end of the campaign... it gives chance for his return should the need arise for someone to help the new party battle a certain newly-made-immortal Queen of Korvosa... should such a person ever show up, of course... ^_^

Um... little confused here. When do the players ever hear from Karzoug himself in the first half of the AP? Doesn't that spoil some things?

LOL... Actually, when I've thought about the players meeting Karzoug, the voice I hear sounds more like Xerxes herald, the guy with the blot out the sun line.

During the recording in the Burnt Offering

In E8 The Comunication room


AAAAAH! Totally forgot. My players never made it that far and gave up trying before heading off to the Skinsaw Murders.


I can't wait to see these audio files tbug ... but I don't have iTunes at all, so I've nothing to convert it with. Any Windows Media file possible please ?


Wow,
one hour after I posted the request, it has been fulfilled.
That’s how awesome this board is !

Thank you very much tbug !!! Sadly I can’t open it :- (
My Media Payer claims to not know the format. Maybe someone could convert it into MP3 ?

Spoiler:
Yes, just the three. He has nothing to say when the players finally fight him :-)

Well, I propably should have spoilered the thread

Spoiler:
They see and hear his projection in Thistletop, he takes over Mukmorian at the and of Fortress.. . and his stone Golem at the Runeforge

Taldor

There's another script for him in The Spires of Xin-Shalast, page 51.

I always hear Karzoug as the Monarch from Venture Bros!

So glad someone asked :-)
According to Wikipedia these Winamp-thingy should be in every Windows, but I can’t find it,I have been searching for hours :-D

Osirion

Quicktime will open it. As will VLC Media Player. The latter I highly recommend, it is free and plays everything I've tried with it. Just google VLC. :)

VLC probably works fine, but to answer the question Winamp was probably the first big mp3 player around - very popular about 10 years ago. Clean look (+ customizable skins available if that's your thing).

I like it for being low-resource cost.

Again, thanks tbug! It'll be nice to have someone else's voice livening it up for a change. My players have heard all my character voices by now.

Ah, I missed that one until now,

it is a good one, again a Emperor-Palpatine-y Image and fantastic Dialog:

“.....You are more like hungry maggots......writhing to get to the death that awaits you at the core of your fate. I am that fate, maggots. I am your death!”

I love this adventure path !


Can we hope to hear the last two monologues from you, Tbug ?
(Don't want to rush you, just asking)

I'm having microphone issues. I'll hopefully get a new headset soon, then finish them up.

Andoran

tbug, sounds pretty good, good luck with the microphones... would like to hear the rest

the damaged transmision in Burnt Oferings would be cool too :D


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

tbug has the evil laugh down. I know from personal experience there is nothing so disheartening as being the recipient of it at the table.

No one ever believes me, but I am the nice one.

tbug nice work!

In my mind's ear / temporal lobe, I hear Karzoug as voiced by Hugo Weaving.


bumping this up,

I don't want to bug you Tbug (hi, hi) just checking once a month ;-)

Any chance to hear the next one soon?


If anyone has the text (not being an owner of the modules), I can have a go at them. Received Pronunciation British speaker :D that I am.

I've ordered a new microphone. Once it's here I'll record the last two. Sorry for the equipment problems! :(

I've got them. Yours for the price of a journey to the front door Fabes.


Oh yes, of course! That would be fun.


I made my Karzoug sound like Unicron from the Transformers cartoon (extremely deep bellowing voice)...

After seeing Chow Yun Fat mentioned in one of the forewords, I haven't been able to imagine any other voice for him.


I can only think of only one voice for Karzoug... Vincent Price.
