Thanks for watching Elerond, Lord of Lost Socks and anek! Did you spot the mentioned games? :D

KotOR the Obscene, eh? :D


Well, you know, Necromancers need to have names like that now don't they? Vexx the malign and so on and so forth. Haha. Let me add that I love the KOTOR games! :lol:

Haha, well, you guys gave me such great ideas! And who doesn't love a good challenge! Baldur's Gate was a little too hard to fit in there though..

It is hard to pick, but I would say `Stealer Of Soulsยด is my favourite, these songs really set right mood for me in regards to this whole project.

Subscribed.

Obsidian if you are reading this, please add an npc to one of the taverns called Armand the bard!

Thanks again Aedelric! I really like Stealer Of Souls as well! It felt really special, as it came to me in my sleep. That has happened once or twice before, but it's still rare! I wanted to do something equally special when I filmed it, so, I took one of my scarves and made it act as a cloak! Haha. :grin:

And sorry if anyone felt like their name got pronounced wrong. You guys got some exotic names I'll tell you!

Farudan: I'll be sure to do a song about the Gods sooner or later! I salute the Order!

I know many were very enamored with that first piece of concept art of the dwarven ranger, you could sing about how the arrows could not puncture the evil mages veil and his partner Edair the fighter used a pistol at close range to puncture the veil so an arrow could fly true or something? Don't know how you could maybe factor the whip into that too...

Just thought that kinda combines the party dynamics with the concept art and veil ideas. Just a thought.

I love your songs so far though (especially your last one) so I am sure whatever you decide to sing about will come out great!


Keep in mind that's a female Dwarf ranger (which is why it's so cool--the ultimate rarity because no one plays female Dwarves, c'mon). :p

I can't figure out why my sound isn't working at the moment so I'll look forward to watching the vid later.



Ah, fandom. See what PE is doing, Obsidian? No pressure at all. ;) (No, seriously, I wonder what sorts of clubs and cults will pop up by 2014.)

I am not into the music, but first and second songs I liked. Should be in the game, whn you enter Tavern and the second, ship or dockyard ofcourse. It's cool that people got inspired by this project. Spread the love, keep them coming.

That was so awesome Armand! The names didn't seem forced in at all either, I am very impressed. This is probably tied for my second favorite with the sea monster song just a hair behind the stealer of souls. But yeah, loved it. Also thanks for the shout out at the end!

Keep up the great work!

Great job Armand the Bard. Thanks for the shout out.

Pretty awesome Armand!


Are you guys thinking about how to implement Armand the Bard's songs in the game already?

Thanks everyone! :D Glad you like it! I'll be taking a small break now. So, next song will have to wait until sometime next week. I'll keep this thread and use it for future uploads. Who knows, I might need your help again in the future!

Hi everyone! The Kickstarter is coming to a close. The last few updates have been mindblowingly great. Specially the lore post and the stronghold stretch goal! I'm certain we'll reach it! :)

I hope to do atleast one more song before it all wraps up. Haven't decided yet on the mood of the song or its content, but I'd like to make it special, as it marks the end of the Kickstarter campaign. I just want to say yet again how much fun it's been to make and film these songs, and the community has been so kind to me. Thanks to all of you! And a special thanks to everyone at Obsidian Entertainment! Means so much to me that so many of you have taken the time to watch and even comment on some of the songs.

If I said I don't wish to be a part of the future of Project Eternity, in any shape or form, I'd be lying. But the feedback alone on the songs here, on youtube and on so many other forums, has made me feel like I'm very much a part of this wonderful group of enthusiasts, all wishing for Project Eternity to become a reality, and for it to become as much as it can possibly be. But it hasn't been all roses though.

Some have questioned my credibility as a gamer, calling me a hipster unfit to be a part of the Project Eternity world. Same thing happened when I featured MineCraft in one of my music videos. Many said I was just "riding the band wagon", this even though I'd been playing MineCraft since before the sponge block was added. I got a whole lot of unjust flak.

Gaming is and has since childhood been a great and beautiful part of my life. I grew up with a single mother, that took on way too many jobs at once to make sure we had food on the table, and she often worked late into the night. Gaming became my refuge. And it didn't end at just beating games. But really beating games. Finding -everything-. And if there was nothing to find, I'd try to get from beginning to end without losing a life. Once I had that down, I started doing speed runs. Not only did this keep me occupied for longer periods of time, but it made sure my mom didn't have to spend more money on buying new games all the time. It was a win-win approach. Later on though, as I got into infinity engine games, it almost became an obsession.. Loading and saving, loading and saving, countless playtroughs, to get every possible conversation outcome, every possible ending, with all companions etc etc...

So, I just want to let you know, I really am one of you. And I am very proud to be.

Wow, this became quite the wordy post, but I guess (hope) RPG players don't have the same problems many others have with reading long posts.

So thanks once again to one and all. I'll be doing one last song before the Kickstarter is over. From there, who knows. I'll certainly be following the development and lurking forums! :grin:

Take care!

-Sure-, people making music inspired by video games for sheer pleasure is just being a "hipster" or "jumping on the bandwagon . I can only roll my eyes so much to such comments, people have been making fan music for years, just because they suddenly hear of such now they think it is a fad. The Nevewinter games alone has hours and hours of fan music, might be hard to do but ignore such people Armand, they know not of what they speak.

As far as I am concerned, good music is good music, even the developers like what you made. You have four days till the end of the campaign, you better get get cracking Armand!

Been too long since your last Eternity piece, we have a lot more lore for you to be inspired by.
