P.S. If you noticed the new music track... Be happy. We are switching the audiobook chapters to fully licensed tracks and original compositions. Yessir, me and Jeff are scrubbing out our last pennies to get this work like it should. More info on that soon.

P.S.2. If you'd like to lend your hand and support me a bit... Be sure to take a look at my StarSignal soundtrack here: [link] - I should be posting a new thingie there in the next few days as well. ;)

P.S.3. Be sure to follow me on twitter, here: [link] - I've been a bit away lately, both on twitter and around these parts, but will be making a big comeback and staying for good by the time next week comes along. ;)

P.S.4. Episode 30 is almost ready... And should be here tomorrow! And I should finally be fully online by Monday. Sorry for the absence, guys.

Nice audiolog. James "Who the hell is James" Vega sounds a little deep, but who cares, it's still awesome.
Guys, if you're licensing tracks, you will need money. Start a project on kickstarter or something, please.

We can't. Not officially. Any money exchanges hands publicly around this and who knows how fast all of this would end. :P If anyone would like to support us in any way they'd best contact us via e-mail or DA notes. ;)

Nice episode, although the actors didn´t really sound like the original VAs (although that doesn´t always have to be the case, I guess...).

It definitely is a challenge to get the voices exact! But I'll definitely work harder on perfecting the voices! (:

Well, the thing is you'll never get actors that sound just like the original VAs, especially not in a fan project... But I dare to say we're really close. :)

:iconbluedemonx:
BlueDemonX Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012
Of course, but some of the VAs are really astonishing (not that the others are less astonishing, just that sometimes you think they´re really the originals :)).

I´m really amazed and happy that you guys took on this huge project! Keep on rolling ;)

We purchased rights to use this music for the Marauder Shields Audiobook, but we do not have the rights to distribute the music on its own. We will be working with the composers about a possible soundtrack release. Until then, we cannot distribute.

Javik... he isn't dead yet, right? He's the last Prothean. The vengeance of a dead people. The oldest troll in The Milky Way. He... he can't have just died. He's like an ancient Zaeed, he's a survivor.

One rule about this series: no important characters die off-screen. If he will die, you'll be sure he's dead. ;)
