    In the process our "Cast" page was also changed: http://www.neverendingnights.com/necast

    As well as the silly character profiles: http://www.neverendingnights.com/nenprofiles

    Updated our FAQ & History Page: http://www.neverendingnights.com/about

    Our video page was also changed: http://www.neverendingnights.com/nenvideos

    Thanks! Been out of the NWN Community for a long, long time... I am pretty sure Season 2 of NeN ended in like June... of 2008. And I haven't been in the NWN Community since then, pretty much. Took a much needed break - that turned into a massive extended break as 2009 became the year of massive traveling for me!

    Now jumping into 2010 - I have done a head dive right into the NWN Community again - and looking to put a finish to the NeN series. It was originally slated to go five seasons; but between Machinima itself seemingly fading away (rather rapidly) and how time consuming it's become, and with a number of voice actors moving on, I just wanted to put a pretty bow on the series and finish it.

    I'm looking to get people into checking out Season 1 and 2 and refresh their memories, so that when Season 3 begins - everything's nice and fresh! And right before us launching Season 3 (which should be no later than the end of Feb 2010) - it's the perfect time to do things like make a facebook page, a twitter account, all in hopes of promoting the series and drawing as much attention as we can before Season 3.

    So my thanks for allowing me this moment and space to do so. :)

    Rather than link everything - I will copy and paste the text...

    Travis Richards who you probably know as NeN’s Master of Music just sent me the Audio Files for a character he will be voicing in the series by the name of Dimi. There’s a part in there – where he hums something – and I am not sure if it’s intentional or not (I even just emailed and asked him) where he brought me back to memory lane of Johnny Castaway – a screen saver that was sold, eons ago, by Sierra Online (I’d link the actual Sierra Online webpage, but they have been bought out and sold so many times over, that linking to the Sierra Help Pages is far more beneficial to learn more about Sierra’s History).

    Not only did he send me those Audio Files for Dimi (which blew me away! He did such a great job with the voice fluctuations!) – but he also send me a MP3 to be used for the first couple of episodes entitled “Prison.” Now he claims he’s not good on the harmonica – (though he also claims he used a +5 Harmonica of Musically) – I can not tell you how much I enjoyed the song “Prison.” It fits so perfectly well and captures the whole bluesy feel of Prison that you think about from the old days!

    Travis Richards proves time and time again that his body is housing an incredible amount of talent that needs to be seen and heard by the world. You should check out Travis Richards’s very cool looking website by clicking here. You can also check out and purchase the Neverending Nights Soundtrack that he threw together for a VERY reasonable price by clicking here.

    Tonight I met with my oldest friend (not oldest as in age!) Charles Stevens. He voices the lines of a new character in the series who is an Astral Traveler and helps guide our would be heroes for an episode. His wife, Tammy did the voice of our resident Seer who has glimpsed the future of our would be heroes. Their son Matthew plays the role of a young Page to a great warrior by the name of John the Journeyman (played by Alex Dartnall). And finally, their eldest (their daughter) Samantha (”Sami”) plays the role of a Smith, who will pass down knowledge that will be crucial to the final quest that the heroes partake in Season Three.

    Still hoping to schedule a time with Adam and Amanda to have them come by to record their lines. They’re essentially the last set of voices I need other than a few minor ones here and there.

    Just completed recording the lines with Amiee (the wife) for her role as Amiee the Armorer. Adam and Amanda had to reschedule recording time to this Saturday. So with any luck we can get that done. Shooting for the first week of March as the first release for the new episode of the Season because of this small delay! But still pretty much on track!

    3.1.10
    Yesterday, Adam and Amanda showed up for the recording session! We began at 11am – and finished at 2:45pm. It took longer than I thought, but that’s because there was a lot of laughing going on. Felt good to have Adam doing the voice of Grayson – and laughing about various lines in the script (it had been the first time that either Adam or Amanda had seen the script – so there were plenty of surprises for them!) I am hopeful that those of you who still follow us and take this journey with us – will find Season 3 a solid, fun, well written season that truly wraps everything up.

    Everything from Season 1 and Season 2 all comes together in this nicely woven tale that ends with Season 3! (Could we try to sell this as “The Neverending Nights Trilogy” I wonder?) I will begin working on the episodes beginning this week – and with any luck I may be able to get an episode out (the first one of the new season!) this coming weekend!

    Brace yourselves for the end.

    3.2.10
    I just finished recording the lines for Peter the Ranger! That’s 99% of the voice work completed! And with the main voices recorded, I can begin Neverending Nights! I am in the process of taking a quick break – then off to build the sets I need in the NWN Toolset to begin filming!

    It’s happening folks!

    Quite a few new episodes since this post...

    First to explain the one thing you may not know - "Machinima." In short, the easy answer, is filming within a game's enviroment, manipulating it, voicing over, and doing something extra with it (like making little segments, videos, etc).

    The most popular Machinima out there, without a doubt is RedvsBlue (I won't even link their website - because it should be obvious) - but that's not who I want to talk about! I want to talk about Neverending Nights which uses the Neverwinter Nights game engine from Bioware to create a series.

    Personally my favorite is that Peter the Ranger character. He's so sauve. So cool. So funny. He's all around the best character. His side kick Grayson is all right.

    I figured I'd open up its own thread. I know people aren't always keen to going to yet another new forum - so if anyone watches our episodes - they can comment here.

    The first 10 episodes are rough. In the first five, we try SEVERAL different filming styles, and video capturing styles. In the first five, we're also using a cheap $9.99 mic. But Episode 10 we were using my Karokee machine through my PC because the sound was infinitely better. By episode 16 (or 17) - we had bought Shure Mics (200 bucks a pop), plus a full audio/digital converter, built a mini studio in a garage and gone the whole 9 yards with it.

    It's paid off, as I said before, because of PC GAMER UK, interviewed by Bioware on their site, Atari contracts, NWN2 for free (plus the expansion) all before it came out, entrance to E3 for free under Atari's badge, entrance to the San Diego Comic Con for free as professionals, etc etc etc.

    So if you're interested - head to the site - download the videos (all for free) - like I said just keep in mind the first 10 are pretty rough - and the entire Season 1 ended up being a HUGE learning processes so that Season 2 (all available for free to download also) was much better all around.
