Want to enchance your gameplay, make your character unique? This mod gives your character ability to speak. From now on you will hear your character commenting various events through the game. This includes diverse voices during combat, while wandering Tamriel, while venturing in the ruins/dungeons, while wandering during the day/night, and many, many more...(you will have to discover them by yourself:) )My goal was to create sound sets for Oblivion...remember Baldurs Gate, or Neverwinter Nights, where you could chose a sound set for your character, depending on the alignment and class you planned to play? So, now you can do so in Oblivion.Details=======Those sound sets wasn't recorded by me, some of them are from Baldurs Gate, part of them was recorded by various voiceactors: VoxPopuli group, Guido Voets (a.k.a. The Deathsangel), Wynne Lurty, Steve Boyes (Ibsen's Ghost); and some are from different games (currently Garrett from Thief series and Annah from Planescape:Tornment).You can now choose a sound set for your character. Note that some of them are aimed for good PC's, some for evil ones. You should also pay attention to class of char you want to play, some sound sets are to be used for warrior types chars, while other are created for thieves or mages. The choice is of course up to you, you can use e.g. Keldorn's sound set while playing a thief character, but you will never hear him commenting a theft or starting to sneak.There are many comments you can hear during the game, some of them will be quite common, some will be heard less frequently, and some are very rare. This will depend on your gameplay, and decisions you make.Currently there is twenty eight sound sets to chose, more of them will come soon.Here is a short description of currently available soundsets:Calisto: an evil female , perfect for assasin/thief char. Sexy and ruthless.Imoen: most of you know this char, so you know what to expact, for those that dont - she is a female thief(will work well as a mage, too), with neutral/good alignment.Mazzy Fentan: a female character with good alignment, aimed for warrior PC's, excellent for palladin types. Her faith in justice is her armour.Garrett: I think there is no need to introduce this one. He is a male character, a master thief . Recommended for thieves only. Sarevok: an evil male character from BG series, perfect for a Dark Knight. Grab your dreadric longsword and feel his rage!Keldorn Firecam: a male character with good alignment, designed for a warrior, especially palladin. A zealot waging his own war with evil, while preserving the justice.Cernd: a neutral/good male for ranger or druid character. "Balance be served", as he would say.Jaheira: some of you still remember this character...for those that don't: she is a druid/ranger. Her bonds with nature are very strong, which you will hear more than once.Edwin: a male character designed for evil PC's, especially mages. He's ill-manered and selfish, but playing this character can bring a lot of fun, and hearing his "Why do I suffer these fools" may sometimes sound suspiciously ... real?Jon Irenicus: an evil male character, perfect for a mage or a warlock. Powerful and formidable. Be him, and make Tamriel tremble before you! Rhett: "A cocky gent with a wry grin on his face, ready to look Death right in the eye and cheat him at cards while doing so.  Use him for your rogue... swashbuckling fighter... heck, even a flamboyant mage wouldn't be too far out of the question." - Clint(Vox Populi)Nalia: a female character with good alignment. Recommended for mages, although any class should fit, as long as it's not a thief nor an assasin.Brekke: an evil female character, designed for skilled in destruction mages, thou she may be used for any female character with bad attitude.Algernon: an eldery male mage. Despite of his age he still journeys seeking adventure. Sometimes he reminds me of Gandalf...Safana: a very sensual woman, endowed with alluring, silky voice. Originally Safana was a thief, but this sound set may be used for any female character with neutral/evil personallity. Note that many of her lines are addressed to you...Minsc: a hero in the full sense of the word ;) . Best for warrior types with good alignment. Originally Minsc was taking care of his hamster, Boo. Since space hamsters are not Tamriel specific, I prepared two versions of this set: one where you can hear Boo from time to time and one without Boo. Read the install instructions in this readme before use.Indarion: a neutral male character, designed for mages. As most wizards, he's very self confident, convinced of his superiority. Written & Voiced: Guido Voets (a.k.a. The Deathsangel).Sillth: An evil male assasin. His existence is an endless hunt. Written & Voiced: Guido Voets (a.k.a. The Deathsangel).Anomen: a male character with good attitude, best to be used as a warrior. Anomen is an eager and zealous palladin, who will stop at nothing, until there is no evil to be fought.Valygar: a male ranger/hunter/monk character with a good attitude. The chaos of the city made him leave civilization and settle in the wild. As a ex-military man he know how to fight, but he will always think twice before making any harsh decisions.Annah: a female thief character from Planescape:Tornment.Syndrana: an evil female character, best for dark knights or barbarians. Brutal and ruthless; where she goes, death goes with her. Written & voiced: Wynne LurtyInnocent: just an innocent girl. No good or bad alignment here, you can play with her as a good or bad character. Written & voiced: Wynne LurtyHaer'Dalis: a famous bard, actor and filosopher who travelled many planes before arriving to Cyrodill. A male with neutral character.Viconia: a female character with an evil attitude. Originally Viconia was a Drow, some of she says are in drowish language. This character should fit to any class...Jeremiah: "The Hammerite Missionary;  he comes from a far-off continent unbeknown to the Empire in a wealthy city named Auldale and he has traveled far so that the heretics and savages of Cyrodiil can receive the word of his God, the Master Builder." - Steve Boyes (Ibsen's Ghost)Ja-Kha?iit-myr: he's a "Khajiit Assassin of the Suthay-Raht Clan (Ja-Kha?iit-myr translates as ?Great Moonwalker?)." - Steve Boyes (Ibsen's Ghost); This sound set strongly refers to Elderscrolls lore. If you want to know more about it, see the 'Custom content' section in the readme.Borrodin Amelius: a knight palladin; through his parentage he possesed the understanding and knowledge of magic that only few mages are proud of; for more info please look for the 'Custom content' section in the readme.Markynaz Kyndrulhu: a male Dremora character; a former general in the army of Mehrunes Dagon; For more info please look for the 'Character background' section in the readme.IF YOU CAN'T FIND SOME OF THOSE SETS ON TESNEXUS SITE USE THIS MIRROR:http://www.shsforums...d...hor&id=7351Download the 'Preview - 29 sets' file to hear samples of all sets.--------------------------------------------------------------------Custom content======================Borrodin Amelius ? The Lost PaladinBorrodin?s bloodline ancestor, Eldagrad, was a renowned member of the Psijic Order who allied himself to Emperor Antiochus and became his counsellor.  During the War of the Isle, Eldagrad was ordered by Antiochus to find out various pieces of intelligence on their enemy, King Orgnum of Pyandonea.  Eldagrad then appointed himself ?High Inquisitor? and used his Aldmeri knowledge to powerful effect.  His passionate allegiance to the Emperor combined with what the Order saw as his cruel misuse of the ?Old Ways? of the Aldmeri, saw Eldagrad dismissed unless he abandoned his Emperor.He did this and instead joined Amiel at the first founding of the Knights of the Nine following the successful War.  Amiel was immediately impressed by Eldagrad?s tough but heartfelt nobility and intelligent views on relations between the old ways and the Aedra.  However, pressure from the Isle of Artaeum, who regarded Eldagrad as having been dishonoured, saw him reluctantly part company with the Knights.  Ever since, his family have sought redemption, keeping safe both the Aldmeri knowledge of the Psijic Order and the traditions of the Knights, and always believing that it was their destiny to return and change the Psijic Order for the better.  Now Borrodin, a High Elf child with a Nord mother, takes on this burden.Additional comments------------------------ Borrodin will use special magickal formulas when casting spells;- Borrodin will also comment a situation when he advances in one of his favourite skills: Mysticism, Conjuration, Destruction. You will also hear those comments when using enchantment or spell to fortify those skills;Install=======1. Extract the files to a temporary location.2.
