"Warrior Priest" Dramatic Audio Reading
Practicing spoken Dovahzul.

I've been practicing spoken Dovahzul a lot lately, and decided to up the ante:

I'm doing a dramatic reading of "Tey Do Kendov-Sonaak" ("Taleof the Warrior Priest") by Paarthurnax (found in the Library). I've taken the translation of the story, made a script, and plan on doing recordings. I'll post my progress here, as well as my Sound Cloud page (https://soundcloud.com/user-870884150)

Here's a rough draft preview:

Any feedback is appreciated.

Update:  I'm currently trying out various voices for the Narrator and Gronehliiv, and working on getting the meaning down so I can put properly convey the action/emotions/etc. going on in the story...

This is pretty neat!

The only thing I can think of that it might need may be a little ambient music/sound for the background.

Or if not music or even simple ambience like fire or wind, then maybe a very mild reverb effect to simulate a stone hall.

Yes!  I definitely plan on having ambient music in the background in the final product.

Quick update.  I refined the script to account for syllable stress, and to make sentences interesting as they follow the storyline.  I'm in the middle of making general notes about the mood, the tension, the build-up, and climax, and the resolution.  After that, I'll record a draft, probably paragraph by paragraph (we'll see)...
