One thing that surprised and intrigued me in the Baldur's Gate series was all the flavour text you could find if you looked for it. BOOKS! Numerous, immersive, and well written, I always loved finding out more about the world I was adventuring in.
However, due to either a lack of patience or an excess of volume (pun), I could never bring myself to read them all since I would quickly begin to miss the gameplay.
One possible solution (that would work for me at least) would be to hire a voice actor with an extremely charismatic and smooth voice to narrate said flavour text. You know that immersive and calm feeling you get when Morgan Freeman talks about pretty much anything? Imagine that but with a voice suitable to a high fantasy setting. AWESOME. I would listen to HOOOUUURS of pretty much anything if it was read by an epic voice.
Of course, I understand that paying a voice actor to read all that would be expensive... but hey! If you guys at the P.E team are trying to think of ways to use that Kickstarter money, that's one that I'd be more than okay with!
As for the forum community, let me know what your guys' take on this is! Weather or not it's important enough, would be worth it, etc., or even list some of your favourite narrators / voice actors to "zone-out" to!
