View Full Version : Seriously? ANOTHER new DM?

Ok, just went into the new area, and it's looking great until the DM spoke. It was ANOTHER new voice, it's like every new patch ever since mod 7, there's a new DM, and it's really getting irritating when the original DDO DM was amazing.

Now I will give credit where credit is due, and at say at least this time, the DM isn't bad, like the one in the inspired quarter and the one in Korthos are and is actually pretty good.

But still, for two of DDO's four years of existence, we only had one amazing DM and two cameo quests, and now we have five fully-fledged DMs, and not a single one of the new ones is better than the first. You'd think you'd learn after three failed attempts, that you just cant beat the original, but I think I have to spell it out.

Suggestion: Stop implementing new DMs and get the original. Make this more like the DDO I fell in love with years ago when mod 2 was first released.


Also: If you don't believe me saying that the old DM was narration gold, listen to your narration files from Irestone islet, Shan-To-Kor and Stormcleave. The man is a master at moodsetting, voice inflection, dialogue narration, and has a very sonorous voice (unlike the the inspired quarter DM) and an accent that only helps. The dude is awesome, please bring him back and stop with this "DM of the month" deal.

The narration for Irestone was indeed amazing, I'll give you that. Anyone know who that DM was? It's quite possible he died, started asking for too much money, started working elsewhere, etc.

I'm aware that a lot of people like him, but if you analyze his delivery, it's not that great. He has redeeming qualities, yes, but to me, he isn't as good as the others because of it.

But hey, to each his own.

If it was just narration, (and if they could get consistently good DMs) this would a valid argument, however, the problem is that he is supposed to be your dungeon master. You don't, in the middle of a pnp campaign, switch out your DM for a new guy every time you complete a chapter in the DM's overall story.

but yeah, i dont really notice the change in voice too much unless a dm does one of those horrible impressions, wish they'd make content where npcs have voices like in korthos, that was the pinnacle of setting the scene

Yeah, but technically, each new update is a new campaign, or, you know, MOD. Our PnP groups would often switch DMs for different MODs.

itd be awesome if it happened like a DM was walking in the room

(dm from korthos- best voice imho, though maybe not skill)
"Aussierex roars at- "
(dm from IQ walks in, sound of a door opening and shutting)
"Hey David"
"I am narrating...." (still in his epic voice for quest mode)
"you are supposed to say as aussierex shrieks at them"
"dragons shriek they roar" (still in his epic quest voice)
"but the script says-"
"shut up"

all the while you are being attacked by a dragon

Zachski

Considering death didn't stop Drexelhand, it is kinda farfetched to say that he called his own bluff. Though all the same, it's humorous and I'm just nitpicking.

The new female DM is actually pretty good imo, I kinda like her narrating. Yet, I like the 2 male 'standard' DM's even more and hope they'll return to narrating in the future, they definitely are the best ones.

The only DM whose narrating I don't quite like is the pseudo Australian one.

Adding new DM voices is not bad as long as they're good.

Raveneia
10-25-2010, 12:43 AM
Yeah the new female DM isn't actually new..It's celemas (or whatever) her name is from shipwreck tut on korthos).

IMO she has a great voice for a female DM.

I haven't heard the other new ones as of yet.

My favorite though is Gary with his line about how the Ghostly skeletons don't seem entirely solid. I laugh because it sounds like he's got an inside joke -- probably that he knows about DR 9999/Good and the Club of the Silver Flame.

I admit that two arguing DMs would be funny, what would be much more like PnP games would be the forgetful DM.

I like the original DM the best as well, hands down.

Can't stand the Korthos one, the one who pronounces "thus" with a lisp. Also, the IQ guy sounds pretty off too...I don't know how to describe it - he just sounds kind of lame.

What drives me nuts is three different DM's in the same dungeon. Example - Information is Key (Osgood's Basement) in the harbor. It's like they started replacing the original DM's narration with more recent DMs but never finished or something. You get the original DM, the IQ guy and Korthos guy all in the same dungeon - odd to say the least (not to mention incongruous and slightly maddening) !

And if the old DM is the one that did Cry for Help in GiantHold I have to respectively disagree. I mute my game sounds every time I go near that quest. The Coalescent Chamber is another one that makes me cringe when the DMs interpretation of the character changes from line to line. One time it's squeaky and annoying the next fairly normal and then back to squeaky followed by booming and benevolent.

I personally find both Daves and Garry's voices to be jarring and obtrusive. I don't think they should remove them or anything both of them deserve their cameo and it was kind of exiting the first time through those quests. Honestly though I wish they had picked a far more annoying and difficult quest for Garry (AKA Tomb of horrors) like say a quest with disintegration traps every 2 feet or so.

OMG I'd love to see a Tomb of Horrors style quest (if not the module placed in DDO in toto with the obvious considerations both for Eberron and an MMO made).

That said, that adventure is pretty counter to the normal style of play in DDO (which favors the "kick in the door" style much more). Still, would be awesome to see that in DDO. +1 rep for you.

I've been meaning to work up a proposal post outlining my idea for incorporating "Expedition to Castle Ravenloft" into DDO. I need to get around to that.

But the crazy voice changing Djinni is the best part of Coalescence Chamber!!!

As to the changing voices for different characters in some of the newer quests, I'm almost absolutely certain that's not different DMs doing the different voices, I'm pretty sure that's just one DM doing an awesome job. Speaking of which, the DM voicing in the Red Fens is awesome, the Last Stand's drow leader's desperation is one of my favorite parts of it.

What are you talking about? That was a wonderful performance. Yet it sounded annoying, but it was the perfect voice for a burly rakshasa trying to sound like a maiden's plaintiff cry for help. It's the very reason you know it's a trap. (In more ways than one)

I haven't read the rest of the thread. But I wanted to say having done Chronoscope tonight that the DM and NPC voiceovers in there were awesome. Awe. Some. More of that please, I don't care how many new DMs you get.

Also - I like that there are different DMs. That makes it feel more like AD&D than almost anything else in the game now they've (wrongly! WRONGLY!!!) done away with dice notations as the main source of game mechanic feedback.

More DMs please.
More girl DMs.
More boy DMs
More old DMs, more young DMs
More DMs with accents or DMs with speech impediments, DMs with overly elocuted syllables.
Good DMs, Evil DMs, sympathetic DMs, mocking DMs, melodramatic DMs, DMs with silly voices or DMs with professional voiceover assistance for NPCs. Even autotuned DMs, if you feel you must.

Maybe avoid monotonous DMs, but other than that I really don't care - it makes it feel more like 'real' AD&D and less like a souless video game, and therefore I'm in favour.

I want to be a DM what do I do?

You do know DMing is about questing and not PVP? :D

I wonder if it would freak players out if a new quest had a very seductive-sounding woman's voice that somehow made everything sound just a tad bit naughty...

(NZ accent) As the seamen probed the *decks* of the *ships* they searched for the forbiden *sixty six* salty meats.

but yeah, i dont really notice the change in voice too much unless a dm does one of those horrible impressions, wish they'd make content where npcs have voices like in korthos, that was the pinnacle of setting the scene

Yeah, except for Cellimas. Whoever voiced her seriously needs to be hunted down and muzzled .

But yeah, the best DM is the original, except when he tried to do character voices. He had some of the best narrative ability ever, but his voices sucked utter bollocks.

Praps they could get whoever did Jeets, he rocked.

This is why we need John Madden as a DM voice in DDO!

I wish they put back Gygax DM voice, there still reusing the tutorial quests, why not reuse his voice too?

The DM in the Inspired Quarter is - simply put - amazing..can't help but think I've heard him somewhere else, though.

Haven't read the whole thread yet, but the worst moment in DM narration is in PoP. You know the one. The 'supposed' female voice saying "The chamber will seal in 10 seconds".

Yes, the original DM was great.
Seeing more guest DMs would be cool as well. (Vin Diesel is a fan of D&D, ask him)
Glad to see that they've been using more female actors/DMs.

Jar Jar Binks for DM :D

NO! For the sake of the Draconic Prophecy and all that is holy to the Sovereign Host....NO!

The game will go the way of the 'new' trilogy. :p

The Old Trilogy is the Holy One. :D

I don't remember anything like that, but my absolute favorite quote in the game is "'I'll kill you, KILL YOU ALL!!' And then he dies, effectively calling his own bluff." from Irestone Inlet.


The quest Cry for Help out in Gianthold. Still makes me laugh when I hear it.

he recorded a few DM voices before his death, at least a few where used for the tutorial quests, the basic same that are today.

I really really love the Korthos DM voice. I'm not a big fan of the dude that sounds like Tuvac from voyager.

I don't have a problem, personally, with the adding of new voices as this isn't actually your DM and it's just part of a video game. My problem comes from walking down a dungeon hall and in the same pathway getting 2 or 3 differant voices on one adventure. That's wack... and kind of distracting.
