Neverending Nights - Episode 15: Reach Out With Your Feelings... (Right Click... SAVE AS...) still has our wayward would be heroes lost in the Aries Desert. However, always one to think on his feet (if it can be called thinking!), Peter the Ranger convinces Grayson to allow him to use another one of his 'Ranger' skills! The results... are less than successful. (But really, is that a surprise?) But Peter does do something ... new! So what is it Peter does? What 'Ranger' skill is he going to use? There's only one way to find out (well not really, but we're building up excitement here, so just bare with me!) - download this 23.5MB video that provides you with 7:46 of entertainment! And while PAT's voice remains difficult to hear... something will continue to happen to the voice that will make it ... easier to understand. But that would be telling... And who the heck is the little halfling in green wizard clothes? Could it be... Well, I will let you find out!

Neverending Nights - Episode 15: Reach Out With Your Feelings... for the PSP - 45.4MB (Right Click... SAVE AS...)

Neverending Nights: Episode 16 - Dessert City...? It's a trend that keeps on happening. Each episode seems to get a little longer than the last. This time we're looking at 10 minutes of pure NeN madness! However, this one will cost you 49.5 megs on your hard drive! But this one is well worth it's time and size! Not only do we have our two star studded would be heroes, Peter the Ranger and Grayson the Fighter - but this episode also has Guard Vern and Guard Douglas of the City of Ator! And not only does it have that - it even has Conner the Kid and Lady Lorraine! And if that wasn't enough talent to be crammed into one episode - guess whose back? That's right! Another update on Pawl the Dorf... and who does he run into? Well, if I said anything, that might ruin the surprise! But you're saying right now, "I downloaded the episode and didn't see Pawl the Dorf! I demand a refund!" I guess you didn't give us credit for being a little sneaky...

So go on. Download it. You know you want to. And when you finish. Show it to your friends. Your family. You know you want to do that too. And when you do that, rent one of those cool airplanes that do the writing in the air, and tell everyone in your city to download it and watch it. (Disclaimer: We're not responsible for injury if you do not possess a pilot's license to be flying one of those things)! :)

The PSP version of this episode will be released in a few days. Speaking of the PSP versions of the episodes, please note that if you go to our video page, the URL for the PSP episodes HAS CHANGED. So if you were directly linking them from somewhere (which we do not mind at all!), please note the new URL and make the changes. All the new PSP episodes will be hosted on the new site on Adam's domain.

Neverending Nights - Episode 17: Heroes Bar & Keep and...? - Weighing in at just over 8 minutes, this one is going to cost you 32.1 Megs of Neverending Nights Goodness! This one has it all! It has ALCOHOL! It has NAKED PEOPLE! It has VIOLENCE! Yes, adults - time to cover the eyes of those kids! This one goes all out with the craziness! Okay, so maybe it does have alcohol, naked people (person!) and violence... but I guess it's not that bad! This episode has our would be heroes entering a tavern in search for some broth to consume after a long trek through the Aries Desert! Elsewhere, this episode also introduces the sinister... ANDREA! The pieces are coming together as we draw closer and closer to the end of Season One! Can your heart take it?

Feel free to comment here about the episode here or come on over to the Neverending Nights - Episode 17 Comment thread on Neverending Nights.com!

Hello, folks. On several forums (ranging from RedvsBlue, to my own personal forum, to even our own precious forum here - several people asked us some Q&A (after stealing the idea from Tink and Ashlan)!

Now, the only one we're making available, is the LO-RES version. This is because the low res version is 97 megs all by itself. The high res version was something like 288 megs. Now I am more than sure no one wants to download a 288 meg file. I'd be surprised if anyone wants to download a 97 meg file of Adam and I answering some Q&A.

If you're questioning the size of the file - it's because it's 45 minutes long! That's right, this isn't one you can just sit down and watch - you have to commit to this one. Now, I am also going to warn parents up front - this is not one for kids to watch. There happens to be quite a bit of swearing through the video.

Another side note, I was originally going to edit it so that the questions were images, then you'd get our answers - but after importing this - I just loved the casualness of this video, and pretty much left it exactly as it is.

People we answered questions from are: Nameless, Ariess22, Chessrook, Temptress, The Crazy Owl, Almirena, DiMono, Ashlan, LilMermaid, Kometda, Tink, Bryy, nmorris, Angelus7 and finally, Mank.

Neverending Nights Q&A - An Evening With NeN - (96.8 Megs) - 44:29 in length - Download, enjoy and pass the URL to others! Thanks to all of you who took the time to ask questions, hope the answers at least amused you!

Well, this certainly came to me as a surprise. So I check my email today - expecting to hear more back about the Machinima 2Thousand5 Submission... and I find something else waiting for me in my inbox.

Hello Tawmis Logue,
Thanks for submitting "Neverending Nights" to the Bitfilm Festival.
As you know, we have selected it for this year's competition.
In some weeks the website will be updated with all relevant information on your work. So please check if all the credits and texts you have put into our database are correct.
Of course you will get one or more free accreditations for the Bitfilm Festival. Unfortunately we do not have the budget to invite you, but if you want to come to Hamburg on your own we will do our best to help you find an accommodation that suits you.
Please contact Lisa if you need help.
Best regards,
The Bitfilm team


I am shocked because I submitted to the Bitfilm quite some time ago...

Regardless, I can't recall what I submitted. If it was all of the episodes (up to a certain point) or a block of episodes!

Interesting to hear what comes of this.

So wish us luck for BOTH submissions!

Neverending Nights - Episode 18: Pepper Flavored? - A mere 18 megs in size - this short episode has our heroes meet an old friend from a previous episode! Also, that old friend apparently knows the location of... The Dragon? Could it be? Are the pieces all falling into place? As we draw closer and closer to Episode 21 - Season One's big ending - it looks like our heroes are on the right trail after all... And it only cost them like... five gold.

As a side note - there was an assortment of issues with using the original footage Adam had provided me. So most of it is refilmed, and limited to one computer, vs the four we normally use for Adam's. But I was lazy, impatient, and bored, so I didn't want to refilm it. So I think filming wise, it's a weak episode (because it's done by me, rather than Adam who has a good eye for what makes a good shot - but thankfully, it's short - so it shouldn't be too painful).

You can comment over here.

Enjoy!

Two things!

If you enjoy Neverending Nights, and you enjoy MONOPOLY - well, we have just the answer for you! How about a Unofficial Neverending Nights Monopoly Game where you could use a pebble to "Kick Rocks" as a piece and use a blue (or green) dice to represent the "Ice Cube Monster" as a piece - rather than a boot, dog, or race car?

Sounds crazy, I know! But have you seen our videos? We are that crazy!

Speaking of our videos and crazy!

Well, I had a free moment (between packing - in case we ever friggin' move!) - and got a little itchy. Didn't have everything for Episode 19 ready yet, so I looked to do something with the old footage.

I ended up making a "Recap/Teaser" about Season One with hints about Season Two.

Neverending Nights - Recap - (35.7 Megs, 8:15 in length) - there's nothing really new to be found here. And the music (Carmen Buana - O! Fortuna may tend to get a bit... bothersome as I cut and looped the music - and 8 minutes of intense music may wear and tear on the nerves). But like I said, I needed a small break from packing and this was the result. Feel free to download it and do what you will.

Well, who would have thought this day would ever come?! But yes - ladies and gentlemen! (Well, no real gentlemen come to this site... but anyway!) - I present to you - Neverending Nights - Episode 19: A Little Magic! (27.1 Megs - Right Click - Save As...) A small amount of disk space for about 7 minutes of NeN goodness! It just makes the world a better place, doesn't it? What's in store for this episode? Well, you won't believe when - ... You know. You have waited long enough. I don't want to spoil anything for you. So why don't you just go ahead and download it and enjoy, eh?

The Holidays have come to an end, and all too early, the cracking of the whip of Real Life Jobs reminds us that we're not independantly wealthy! (Well, most of us aren't... myself included!)

And with that, and all the family visiting out of the way, the time to work on Episode 20 of Neverending Nights is finally at hand!

What - you thought we forgot - this close to the end of the first season?

No way! Life's just been hectic for the holidays!

Work on Episode 20 begins tomorrow! All the filming and audio is done - it's merely a matter of cutting, splicing, and dicing it all together!

We hope to have a release this Weds!

Well, I knew it would come down to this. Adam, the lazy ass that he is, with his lame excuses has been booted from FNBH Productions. And I noticed, as soon as I booted his candy little rump, production at the offices of FNBH Studios nearly tripled! And as a result, I am able to stand here, and tell you - at long last - Episode 20 has been completed! And more so, Episode 20 is now available for release!

So come get you some much needed NeN goodness!

Neverending Nights - Episode 20: Variety is the Spice of Life... (Right Click, Save As... 26.1 Megs)! In this episode, Peter and Grayson discuss the matters of money and how to spend it - and from where they stand - they can see the "Dragon Cave!" The end of their quest is nearly at hand! Meanwhile, not too far away in the Plains of Desolation, Andrea and Daniel make an appearance and explain why they're there - and run into some... unexpected company! A mere 26.1 Megs of goodness! You know you want to download it!

Posted Image

PS: Unfortunately, I had to rehire Adam for the FNBH Studios staff, as the Studio is at his house, as is the recording equipment, with a slight fact that he pays for the domain (hey, do I still owe you for this year?!), and because, no matter how lazy he is - and no matter how much of a delay he causes Episodes to be released - he's still an all right guy.

I guess.

This thread is a tad out of date... but we have just begun Season Two!


Hello folks! For those of you who have not sponsored and have been waiting on pins and needles since last week - it's officially Tues and that means it's officially time for you to be able to do what you have waited all your life to do!

To vote? No! Better than that!

To drink? No! Better than that!

To have sex? No! Better than that!

Well, maybe not better than that last one...

But it's time for you to be able to download - the VERY first episode of Season Two of Neverending Nights!

Yes, that's right folks.

It's time for you to be able to download some more Peter the Ranger action! (Oh, for those few fans that enjoy Grayson the Fighter Side Kick - yes, he's in this episode too!)

Find out what happens when Peter the Ranger and Grayson the Fighter confront ... The Dragon of Ator!

Things for our two heroes - never seem to go right. So what could possibly go wrong this time? And against a dragon?

Remember how Season One's Cliff Hanger Ended - Well, here it is - the answer to it all!

What's that?

Stop rambling and just give you the URL to download the episode!

Well fine then!

Neverending Nights - Episode 22: This is Dragon On Too Long (Right Click... Save As... 18.4 Megs)

After you finish watching it, please feel free to head to our forum and let us know what you think of the episode in the Episode 22 Video Thread!

For NEVERENDING NIGHTS, we are not. We toyed with the idea, made the models, and thought it was too drastic of a change. But for NWN2, you can look up NEVERENDING DAZE on Atari or Bioware/NWN2's website and see what we created there. It's also on YOUTUBE. :-

See... now at least THAT'S funny! (Should have hired you as one of our writers...!) :lol:

Ahem...

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.

http://neverendingni...om/archives/263


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.

Our website - neverendingnights.com

Facebook Page

Our Youtube Channel

Our Twitter Page

And I have to link Travis Richard's Page since he did so much incredible music for us in Season 3, that really put this series over the top!
