About

We have been wanting to do this for some time now. We have been wanting to upgrade our original Darkraven Fantasy Soundscapes product from 240 kbps MP3s to high quality 320 kbps MP3s. Not only that, I feel the tracks deserve remastering and seamless looping (if your software or equipment is really up to that -- and some tracks will not seamlessly loop... only if it makes sense to). On top of all of that, we are going to add a swamp "chapter" (until now there was no swamp!), and a few more miscellaneous must have tracks and environments to really round things out. Funny but for years I had planned on calling this Ragnarok Edition. Marvel changed that. LOL.

This is what "Tox" at CritsHappen had to say about the project when it launched several years ago (hard to believe we have done 26 Kickstarters since then!)...

And now on to the 85 tracks with 21 HOURS of sound for your fantasy role-playing you will be getting! The product you will be getting is divided into several "chapters" to aid the game master in finding what he needs quickly.

Risks and challenges

Darkraven Games has been around since 2013 and has done over 25 audio Kickstarters (on this account and two others). We feel we have gotten the hang of things and are excited to get this project to get this to you as well. Though not ALL of our projects were delivered on time, in every case except for one, we were no more than 1 month late and have since really adjusted our self imposed deadlines to more accurately reflect time required. With all of that experience, we feel this project has a 99% chance of going according to plan. But who knows. Something can always go wrong. There is one thing we have proven... Darkraven plans to work to make our customers happy and plans on doing what it takes to be around in 10 years with a good reputation!
