Bringing custom fantasy audio to tabletop games everywhere!

WELCOME (BACK) TO THE REALMSOUND PROJECT!

It’s time amazing audio came to everyone’s tabletop games!

Often using an OST from Lord of the Rings or other great movies just doesn’t quite set the particular setting that the GM is striving for.

It’s not easy finding a sorrowful howl of an undead or the ground shaking thunder of a charging orc hoard.

Trying to change your voice just a little bit or adding an accent to try to bring some life to those non-player characters gets tiring and falls a bit flat.

Everything changes now!

We are the Orange County Gaming Group and we are bringing tabletop gaming to the next level by composing a library of custom made, high quality music, voice overs, and sound effects, made by rockstar talent.  What we have sourced has been unbelievable and has transformed the way we game, but don’t take our word for it….. 

Music Location - Dwarf Temple - Actual

There was no better way to highlight the awe of walking into a grand dwarven temple than using this track. These are dwarves the way they are portrayed in some of the most iconic gaming environments out there and here, we can hear their reverence for their god, their connection to the smithing arts, and that resiliency that comes from those born of the stone.

The details are what counts and we nitpick the heck out of everything we source. We have split music into two categories, “Actual” and “Ambiance”. Actual means that the music is meant to be actually performed by characters in the game and heard by the player’s characters. Ambiance is just that, music the GM needs to set the mood.With that said, here are some more dwarf tracks with a religious or ceremonial theme.

Music Location - Dwarf Temple - Ambiance

Music Racial - Dwarf Ceremony - Actual

Music Racial - Dwarf Ceremony - Ambiance

We want to create tons of scores that are custom written for races, locations, events, and themes, those that are often used in most tabletop games in order to provide the GM an arsenal of ways to enhance the role-playing experience. Here we have Joe J. Thomas (Voice Actor for Diablo III and other AAA video games titles) breathing life into merchants any character can and will run into.

VO Script - Marketplace Vendor #1 (General Goods)

VO Script - Marketplace Vendor #2 (Illicit Goods)

Ever wonder what the Infernal Language (or a language spoken by devils, demons, or other icky evil things) sounds like?

VO Language - Infernal Language Set

Then we go off into the world of sound effects and believe us, there is NO LIMIT to the number of custom made sound bites games desperately need.

SFX Spell School - Basic Evocation Spell Effects

Somewhat related to ‘Actual’ music, soundscapes add a non-music ambiance to a gaming session which can highlight the environment in a way that a narrative just can’t do. For example:

SFX Environment Soundscape - Castle Soundscape - Night

--The Soundboard--

Soundboard "Mock-Up". Still under developement

If you’re as hardcore a gamer as us and you plan to really dive into this audio, you MUST have a slick soundboard that makes actually using these assets super quick and easy (otherwise, what’s the point, the game cannot be interrupted to play some audio) and that’s exactly what we’re working on.Some quick highlights of the specs and functionality we’re working on are:

1.Quick audio asset organization using a simple folder system

2.Click and drag interface

3.Independent looping and volume control options

4.Layered Playing Area – Section of soundboard where users can drop various tracks and play them in a layered fashion (having a voiceover play over a soundscape)

5.Development on Adobe Air so multi-platform support (PC / Mac)

--What we want to do with this money--

Kickstarter and associated fees.

Explaining "Value".  On the pledge rewards, we list "Value" and an associated number.  This number represents how much money we have spent (on previously sourced audio) and how much money we will spend (the future sourced audio) including audio, soundboard, fees, and website.

We humbly ask the community to pitch in to help bring everyone’s games to a level never possible before. We know what we’re doing and we love doing this so even though we won’t make any money, we want to bring audio to a genre we’re passionate about.

Thank you.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Acquiring so many varied pieces of audio in relatively short amount of times can be difficult and time-consuming, but with the advent of crowd-sourcing websites of all kinds, the process has become easy. Realizing this, we can use our networks to acquiring the audio and keep Realmsound updated and alive with new content that is professionally produced yet completely available to the public. In the case that crowd-sourcing may not yield the results we are looking for, we do have our own network of artists and composers to complete the process and get just the right piece to convey the fantasy gaming feel from speakers to your table.
