About this project
The problem with making more is that Balthazar is a professional freelance composer and sound designer. When he puts in the substantial time to do the talent part of making the songs, he literally has to turn down paid gigs -- a tall order for someone who doesn't even play WoW!
Hunter Fuel Album
The solution was to put the issue into the hands of the hunter community. With your help we can make make more original hunter songs. With enough help we can even have what no other class in the game has: an entire music album dedicated to our class -- something that hunters certainly deserve for being the greatest community in WoW.
While we'd love to produce an entire album, the funding goal for this project is just enough to make one additional hunter song. Additional funding levels with allow us to produce more and more songs until we finally reach the full album.
The songs that we produce will be in a variety of styles, from anthemic hunter songs to love songs to a song dedicated to the indomitable sporebat.
If you're a hunter, or just love the hunter experience, please help make more original songs for our class by spreading the word: tweet it and email it and let your hunter guildmates know.
And most of all, thank you for your support!
Kickstarter goal: $500
The basic all or nothing goal is to raise $500 for Balthazar & Frostheim to produce a new hunter song, which will be available for download as a mp3.
Stretch Goal: $700 - Hunter Open Collab
At the first stretch goal level, Balthazar & Frostheim will also contribute to TaintedLore's awesome Hunter Open Collab, and make a mp3 download available. Frostheim predicts that TaintedLore's response will be, "Balthazar completes me."
Stretch Goal: $1,200 - Special Hunter Community Song
Balthazar & Frostheim will also work on a special but secret hunter community song project if we raise $1,200 through this Kickstarter project. It will also be available for mp3 download. This project is shrouded in mystery and the only way to know exactly what it is, is to drum up enough funding for it to be made. Frostheim is particularly excited about this one though, since he's tried to beg Balthazar to do it for free multiple times over the past couple of years, but it takes up too much of his time (ie: he would have to turn down paying gigs to do it).
Stretch Goal: $2,500 - Hunter Love Song
What the world really needs is a WoW hunter love song, and at this funding level Balthazar & Frostheim will make that happen -- in addition to everything previous of course. Like the rest, the hunter love song will be available for download and will make you swoon. Or giggle.
Stretch Goal: $3,500 - I'm a Hunter Remake
Balthazar & Frostheim will remake the original I'm a Hunter song, updating the lyrics that are now outdated into something suitable for the Mists of Pandaria hunter of the future!
Stretch Goal: $5,000 - Hunter Song #3
Balthazar & Frostheim will create a third new original hunter song and make it available for mp3 download.
Stretch Goal: $6,500 - Hunter Song #4 - Twice as Badass
Balthazar & Frostheim will create a fourth new original hunter song and make it available for mp3 download. To celebrate this funding level, this song will be twice as badass.
Stretch Goal: $7,500 - Sporebat Song
Balthazar & Frostheim will create a fifth new original hunter song dedicated to the best pet for the dps: the sporebat. This badass sporebat song will haunt rogues and death knights the world over.
Stretch Goal: $15,000 - Entire Hunter Album
At this amazing level Balthazar & Frostheim will create an entire album, Hunter Fuel, of at least 10 hunter songs which will be made available for download. All contributors will have access to a free mp3 download of everything on the album. The songs will cover a variety of music styles and there will be special bonus tracks of all kinds of extra stuff.
With Hunter Fuel the hunter community will become the only class with a full album of music dedicated solely to them. All the other classes will whine and complain and troll out of jealousy.
This will be epicly awesome.
Stretch Goal: $30,000 - Hawaii Song
At this improbable funding level Balthazar & Frostheim will travel to Hawaii to write a special extra hunter song on the beach. The song will be available for download along with a video photo album of pictures of us writing the song on the beaches.
Again, thank you all for any support you're able to give, and for tweeting and sharing this Kickstarter with other hunters around the world. We are very excited about the possibility to be able to work on WoW hunter songs again.
If this was any other class in WoW, we would never have even considered a Kickstarter project like this -- it just wouldn't have the faintest chance of getting funded at any level. But hunters have years of experience at making the impossible happen, and if any class can do this, it's hunters.
