King's voice.



  • I believe it’d be a good idea to give the King in Stoneshill a different voice than other Agathian classes - this adds up to the king’s individuality, and gives the Agathian team the opportunity to actually know when the King says something, which makes it easier to follow his orders. If he sounds like just another Agathian knight (as currently so) then it’s hard to distinguish his commands and requests from a regular knight.

    Let me know what you think.

    –----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Here’s my take on Kearn’s lines. Will update with Malric’s later.

    (Follow me)
    “Come, brothers - follow my crown!”
    “Follow me, your king!”
    “Come, follow - let me lead you to battle, as a king should!”

    (Forward)
    “Forward, crush the traitors, in the name of your king!”
    “Go, forward - I’ll be fine.”
    “Worry not for me, charge at the Masons!”

    (Retreat)
    “Fall back to the throne room, we cannot hold this position!”
    "Backwards, brothers - retreat to the throne room!
    “Retreat, my loyal subjects! To the royal throne!”

    (Kill Archers) - We can assume Feydrid really hates archers, given how he’s a man of strength and close quarter combat, while archers are not - together with the fact Alfonso Argon, one of his closest friends (if not the closest) and previous king, was killed by an archer.
    “Bloody archers - remove them from my sight!”
    “Rid my palace of these wretched, cowardly archers!”
    “Destroy those king-killing, arrow-spewing rogues!”
    “Kill. Those. Archers!”

    (Go for the objective)
    “The Masons aim to kill me - show them true Agathian loyalty!”
    “The Mason anarchists have penetrated the throne room - kill them, for house Argon!”
    “Hah, treasonous scoundrels misplaced within the throne room - let’s show them the exit, shall we?”
    “We knew this day would come, lads - by the Gods, we shall show them no mercy!”
    “Order intruders within the palace - are you with me lads?”

    (Hold your ground)
    “Stand where you are, in the name of your king!”
    “Hold your current location!”
    “Don’t move, hold your ground!”

    (Defend me)
    “Come, friends - protect your king!”
    “I need protection, they’re too many for me to handle alone!”
    “Form up around me, for Argon’s sake.”

    (Incoming)
    “Incomiiiiiiing!”
    “Brace yourselves, here they come!”
    “The Masons press forward, hold the line!”

    (Behind us)
    “Quick, behind us!”
    “From the rear!”
    “The Masons are flanking us!”

    (All clear)
    “Looks like the traitors have called it a day.”
    “Hah, the Mason footsoldiers appear to share Malric’s primary trait - cowardice!”
    “They’re gone - keep it that way!”

    (C while standing still)
    “For the white lion!”
    “Kneel before honor, kneel before your king!”
    “One crown, one land!”

    (C while moving)
    “KEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARN!”
    “FOOOR THE CROOOOOOOOOWN!”
    “RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!”

    (Help)
    “Your king requires assistance!”
    “My subjects, I need help!”
    “Even I can’t handle this alone - lend me a hand!”

    (Got your back)
    “Fear not, the King is here.”
    “Release your worries, brother - for your back’s covered by royal stature.”
    “Keep your eyes up front, I’ll watch the rest.”

    (Thanks)
    “You’re eating Pardonian chicken tonight!”
    “You have my thanks, as king.”
    “Tonight, after all this, you’ll be at my table.”

    (You’re welcome)
    “My pleasure, soldier.”
    “It’s but my royal obligation.”
    “Please - I’d be a bad king if I hadn’t.”

    (Sorry)
    “I royally apologize.”
    “Contrary to popular belief, even kings make mistake.”
    “Sorry, crown got in the way.”

    (Taunt)
    “Add to my scars, I dare you.”
    “You? Kill me? Better men have tried, and better men have failed.”
    “Prepare to be royally obliterated!”
    “Come - let me kick your sorry heads right back to the Malric’s fake throne!”
    "“Yet again the Order proves to have the mind of a sheep, divided up among them!”
    “Argon fell - but I. Will. Stand!”

    (Laugh)
    Just bellowed laughter, I suppose.

    (Respect)
    “You know, there’s an empty spot on my royal guard…”
    “My niece is yet to be wed… interested?”
    “You fight with the strength of many men, sir knight.”



  • You forgot Malric :x
    Never, never forget Malric… :|



  • Very good idea. Its all about teamwork right? ;)



  • @Hunutteri:

    You forgot Malric :x
    Never, never forget Malric… :|

    Oh, yes - and of course Malric as well.



  • I agree. I would be metally boosted to fight if I heard our king speak words of encouragement to us



  • @junkersapple:

    I agree. I would be metally boosted to fight if I heard our king speak words of encouragement to us

    Another argument as well, yeah - it really gives that extra boost (as you nicely put it) to morale, as a king’s presence in battle should.



  • I approve.
    On a related note, I think there should be more TO maps where you have to defend one player (King/General/etc). It really is a pleasure to play King on Stoneshill or Citadel, everyone is very eager to defend you. It’s were teamplay really shines through.
    Sorry for hijacking your thread :(



  • And maybe, to make it more interesting, Torn Banner Studios holds a contest for best voice overs & winners get to be King/Malric in game.

    There would be the issue of poor quality Mics, of course, sutch as my own, lol.

    But the idea should be concidered.

    That’s genius!



  • Also currently using the Go For Objective voice command as king makes him sound like he talks in third person. “The King must not fall” etc.

    I would make a GREAT king voice (not really) but I only have like the cheapest mic ever :(



  • Agatha King: “TOGETHER WE STAND AND TOGETHER WE FALL!”

    Malric: “DIE FOR ME, MY MEN. MY FALL WILL ONLY MARK THE END OF THIS FIGHT FOR FREEDOM!”(Oh the ironic)



  • For those that don’t know they Agathian kings name is Feydrid. The late king Argons right hand man. Its shouted out by both sides.



  • If the masses allow it, I would gladly post a sample of my vocal capabilities within the next few days as to promote this idea.



  • Make SURE you have a voice command that is something along the lines of “No matter what happens to me, men, know that I am proud to be your King!”

    You’ll have grown men bursting into tears. I guarantee you.



  • If the king ever does get his own voice, then his voice should be amplified so you can hear him yelling at the start of the long hall in Stoneshill and at the broken doors for Citadel.



  • @lemonater47:

    For those that don’t know they Agathian kings name is Feydrid. The late king Argons right hand man. Its shouted out by both sides.

    Well, the guy on stoneshill marked “King” is Feydrid. However, he is only the stuart of Stoneshill, while the actual Agathian King is Danum Argon, the nephew of the recently deceased Alfonso Argon.



  • @DokB:

    Ah, grand idea. Feydrid’s known for his muscular and manly being anyhow, no doubt he has a voice to match his persona. Not all of his voice commands should be heard like that though - I’d say only tactical messages should be globally audible (AKA the Z button).

  • ^ Great suggestion, but we would need someone sound very noble and suitable as a king.

    I suggest Total Biscuit from youtube

    Not just a king, but King Kearn to be exact - http://puu.sh/3ygIg.jpg

    Not sure if that’s a good idea.
