Darkraven is BACK with an audio project to bring your dungeon adventures to life for you! Here is a secret: HALLS OF BALTHORG (GOBLIN DUNGEON AUDIO) is probably my favourite project to date. Because of that, I felt that it would be fun to release my "director's cut" -- the version I use myself! 

WHAT YOU GET! NEW SOUNDS AND ATMOSPHERE! This Kickstarter will add another 15 minute seamless audio loop to the project which can be added to boost the experience. Additions will include a very distant orc war feast (with music) which gives the dungeon a more lived in feel, new voice acting for more variation in the orc "encounters", drums beating in the deep, more unique passes of the goblin patrols in the distance, a troll trained by its masters in the deep, and BATS*. You will get this new audio BOTH added to the original track for a full 60 full minutes, AND as a 15 minute seamless add on (if your player has the ability to play seamlessly), so you can repeat only this portion as necessary. At Gold level and above, for those who do not have the original product, you will also get a copy of the 45 minute versions so you have more flexibility in programming your dungeon experience.

This whole audio project is not meant to interfere with your goblin dungeon gaming in any way. All "encounters" are so far away (think the scale of Moria) that players cannot "find them". It just brings your gaming to life and gives the feel of adventuring into a "lived in" dungeon. 

*All specifications subject to change without notice.

Check out this cool sample of the original "Halls of Balthorg" audio! In addition to this track, GOLD backers will also get two alternates of the same track. The first alternate will be the same track, but without humans. And the second alternate will be the same track without monsters or orcs (the players have practically cleaned out the dungeon).

 And GREAT NEWS! While we are at it, I will include a FREE 15 minute track, "Adventurer's Fight Undead in Crypt" for all Gold (and above) backers of this project. Please note that this kick ass, exciting, hair raising track has already been released in the massive, awesome, "Vivat Imperium" (with over 100 tracks and over 50 locations, it's the world's biggest audio project to bring fantasy cities to life). SAMPLE BELOW:

At this backer level you get:

1) "Halls of Balthorg" Director's Cut Silver - You get the Director's Cut Goblin Dungeon 60 minute seamless superloop in 320 kbps MP3 format by digital download.

You get all of these tracks in high quality 320kbps MP3. Gold backers also get a 15 minute track with JUST the new audio so you can play that as desired with the original 45 minute version (if you own a copy) or not (best if your playback device or software can handle seamless playback). You also get a copy of the original 45 minute tracks so you have more flexibility in programming your dungeon experience (play it with or without the new audio!). 

2) A FREE copy of "Adventurers Fight Undead in Crypt (with Magic)". This is a 12 minute track featuring one of the craziest things we have ever done. It is an out of control, no holds barred brawl between a handful of undead and a party of mixed adventurers who have stumbled into a tomb and bitten off a bit more than they can easily chew. Your hair will stand on end as you hear the shelves of sacrificial ornaments go smashing to the floor as the melee and fight for their lives unfolds! This is a pre-existing track from our massive, "Vivat Imperium" (the world's largest audio project to bring your adventures in fantasy cities to life). You can hear a sample of this track at the end of the project video above.

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!
