New professional recording plus sound design for monsters, spells, music and a whole lot more!

Welcome to the second Plate Mail Games audio Kickstarter. If you play RPGs, board games, LARPs, or war games, we have something for you. These professionally sound-designed tracks will enhance your games, adding depth to the stories you play. Each background loop and music track is 10 minutes long with no high or low moments, while the traps, spells, weapons, and monster sounds vary in length. All Mp3s are 320 Kbps/44.1K and if you are at the $75 dollar level, once we fund you get 238 tracks before we even get to stretch goals. Click on the banner above for a full track list.

 What Is Plate Mail Games?

For those of you who were not part of the last Kickstarter, Plate Mail Games was born out of the success of that project. Originally, the goal was to raise $1,000 for 16 Mp3 background loops and 8 PDFs. At the time, I didn't know if anyone would be interested. I was planning on making the loops no matter what, and the Kickstarter was a way to cover a small portion of the cost if it funded. The response was overwhelming and I was able to create 108 Mp3 background loops. I was also able to launch Plate Mail Games.

Who Are You?

I'm Wes Otis, a professional sound designer with 15 years of experience in post production audio. I have worked on shows for Warner Brothers, Disney, and Nickelodeon. I've been nominated for four Golden Reel awards and one Emmy. I've also been a gamer for 30 years. I started playing 1st edition AD&D when I was a kid and still play many types of games. I took these two loves and combined them like chocolate and peanut butter in order to create great sounds for your games.

What Is This Project for?

The goal is to create a catalog of sounds for gamers to use with their games. This will include monsters, weapons, traps, spells, music, and more background loops. The use of sounds during a game helps transport players to the world in which they are playing. Hearing a dragon through a dungeon door adds to the tension of the moment.

Where's the Sound App?

If you backed the last Kickstarter, you know I've been talking about a sound app for all platforms. Here is why the app is not part of this Kickstrarter:

I've done a lot of research about creating the app and the bottom line is it is very expensive, which is not a shock. I'd like an app for every platform, and to do that with the functions I want, we're looking at about $70,000. Now, I want a sound app and no matter what, I'm going to get one made, but I'm not going to tie it to a Kickstarter for two reasons.

First, I'm not doing everything myself. Because I have to work with outside vendors, I don't want to risk too much of the backers' money on it.

If this Kickstarter goes super well, I will put some money from it to start the ball rolling on development, but that is only after we raise all the money to cover the creation of the gaming sound catalog including all the stretch goals planned. You're backing the audio, helping with the app is an added perk, and that brings us to the second reason why it's not tied to this KS.

The app will be free. There is no need for it to be a reward because anyone will be able to pick it up and use it.  And when I say free, I mean completely free. Cost free, DRM free, ad free, and I will not raise prices on my audio tracks to pay for the app. You will also be able to import third party audio to use with your games if you like. I will update it for as long as Plate Mail Games sells enough audio and PDFs to do so. I'm a sound designer, and that is what I plan to sell.

I'm going to put all my audio and gaming experience into this project. As for the sound app, I want to give something back to the hobby that has given me 30 years of awesome memories. This KS is very important. If you back this project and help me spread the word, we can create something great together and possibly start development on the sound app. The more we raise, the more freedom I'll have to create, and that's what KS is all about.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Challenges to the project will be managing recording time and labor. I have 15 years of experience in audio and have never missed a deadline. I also have already successfully run an audio KS. I will keep backers informed of any issues that might delay delivery.

FAQ

  • The cost to record, design, and mix sound is high. To cover the cost of the rewards before the stretch goal, it will cost around $46000.00 I have explained what I plan to be spending product money on here: http://bit.ly/1bQfrQ4
