It's here! Our first expansion to "Vivat Imperium" -- "Inn of the Red Dragon". Featuring 52 locations and 61 alternates, with a total of 127 awesome tracks and 26 insane hours of sound, Vivat Imperium is the world's largest ongoing sound project for audio to bring your fantasy adventures in the exotic imperial capital of a sprawling empire to life. Now, "Inn of the Red Dragon" takes you inside one of the city's best-known establishments for an evening of excess, debauchery and musical delight. The imperial city's adventurers, merchants, soldiers, charlatans, thieves, and ladies of the night have gathered here to bring some light into their lives and rest their minds. You will find tales of danger, adventure, and perhaps even paths to riches in every corner as the evening moves along. Exotic meats, food and spirits from around the Empire are served here while a band of troubadours entertain with their music. After an evening here, you will see just why the Inn of the Red Dragon has a reputation that reaches well beyond the walls of the capital of the Imperial City. 

Make sure to check out the Platinum Edition. With that you will be getting three bonus songs to reduce repetition, all audio in both 320kbps MP3 AND FLAC format, and several alternate bonus tracks (details below).

And if you pick up "Inn of the Red Dragon -- Vivat Imperium Edition" for one low price, you will also get our full edition of "Vivat Imperium", sounds from an exotic imperial capital, with 52 unique locations, over 60 alternates, 127 total tracks and over 24 hours of audio.

Here is some audio for you to have a listen to! This is still all work in progress. So some things may change. Most of the 10 songs are instrumental so as not to distract you too much from your gaming. But we have two with vocals for you! I see a weary traveller in that corner over there! I think he may have an adventure to tell about in the hills that could lead you to riches! Quick. Grab a seat! 

Sample 1: General Red Dragon Inn ambience. Busy evening. Summer. 

Sample 2: General ambience leading into first song.  

Sample 3: Portion of song #2 -- instrumental.  

Sample 4: Portion of song #3 -- instrumental.  

 Sample 5: Portion of song #4 -- instrumental. 

 Sample 6: Portion of song #5 -- instrumental.

Risks and challenges

Darkraven has done around 20 audio projects for games. Other than one project which we learned a TON from, and another project was delivered to customers late because the game partner responsible for distribution themselves was slow, we have delivered almost all on time. In case there is a problem in delivery, please contact us at darkravenhelpdesk@gmail.com. One of our fabulous pixies will take care of you as soon as pixily possible.
