This is an excellent idea! Cat and Mr. Hamrick, you'll be adding some great stuff to the Voicepack section!

First, I have a question:

Are these packs going to sound closer to the FF voicepacks? Or closer to the X-Men Legends/MUA/Justice League Heroes tone? I mean, are they going to be sort of campy, or a little more serious?

I'm wondering this because my suggestions may differ depending on which angle you are deciding to take. For instance (and I'm thinking out loud here), a male_irish kinda XML/MUA would be excellent in order to have a pack that I could use for Banshee. But that is still generic enough for other people to use it for their respective Irish heroes.

If you're going the "Right makes might!" way, there are other ideas crossing my mind right now.

Either way, as a VP creator, I'll enjoy this immensely. There's always room for more packs. I'm willing to provide you with scripts for my suggestions, too.

My crew and I can go either way with it.

I am sending off the first batch to my casting director/co-producer who is also one of the actresses in the morning.

Just some ideas.

The wise old master^^ (Like Yoda or in any kung-fu movies^^)
The pacifist-scared by his own uncontrolled power "I don't wanna hurt you" type.
The robot-cop/detective-type. ("apprehending suspects 'blip'")
The gunslinger type "Fill him full o' lead"
A theatrical type that speak with rhyme^^

I'll be out of town for a couple of days.  Do continue while I'm gone.

EDIT:  I'm back and nothing much has happened it seems.  On the other hand, I've been told the ones sent in so far should be recorded and sent over soon.

Well, here are my requests:

female feline (Tigra)
female asian (Armor/Revanche/Sunpyre)
female french (Aurora)
female sultry (Black Cat)
female young russian (Magik - Illyana)
male arrogant (Archangel)
male individualist (Quicksilver)
male irish (Banshee)
male jungle (Ka-Zar)
male mafioso leader (Kingpin)
male omnipotent (Thanos)
male psychotic trickster (Arcade)
male shaman (Shaman)

The characters added in parenthesis are just the models I'm taking into account for their respective scripts. Don't worry - I will create generic lines, nevertheless.

First, I would like to know if these requests are okay. Especially those regarding accents. If everything's alright, I'll provide the scripts as soon as I can.

I'm going for a more serious approach here. That means, more along the lines of MUA/XML. I will also provide some description on the personal traits of each character (for example, dark, brooding voice... or calm demeanor, a person who doesn't raise his voice except if he's furious). I think that could be useful for the voice actors in order to do their work.

What a great sounding (pun?) project, Cat and Gary...I can add no more suggestions, as the best have been made already.

I think we already have a male psychotic and it might be worth waiting to see if that one is similar to your idea.

The others, however, are fine.  Feel free to work on them.

I've just sent said male psychotic in. I'm actually thinking it might be easier if someone else did the females, since I think I'd probably just end up reusing a lot of the male lines. Would be interesting to see two different takes on the character type. Finishing up scary now.

Love the idea.

Not sure if these are covered by the others, but here are some ideas from NWN and other games I've played:

California Surfer Dude
California Valley Girl (no examples, just thought it would be funny to have slacker heroes)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Generic Teen Boy/Girl (i.e. Static Shock, teen titans)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Righteous Defender Male/Female (i.e. Thor/Wonder Woman)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)


Animals/Beasts (i.e. large cat, large reptile, large bird...just a thought, not a high priority)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Swashbuckling Male/Female
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Grisled Veteran (i.e. Dirty Harry)
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Again, just ideas....make of them what you will.

The animals I already thought of, but I'm not sure about how to do those.

As for the rest--pretty good.  I'll add them to the list next time I update them.

minor bump:

any progression on voices or scripts? Is the project still on "go," or are we fully situated on "paused"?
