Thank you all so much for your love and support for what we do, we can not fully express our gratitude. Your encouraging words fuel us to continue our projects with all the attention to detail we can bring. We create these mods because of our passion for them, not for money. Some may find it odd that we put so much work into our community without any profit to gain, but we do it for the fans! Each and every one of you are important to us, you give us the drive to continue on our quests.
As the title of this post suggests, we have a favor to ask all of you. Christian Gaughf, our main writer of Forbidden Love, voice of Chieftain Cael, needs our help, your help. Though, we will not let this halt our work on Forbidden Love, we still need help to pick up the pieces and put them back together.
If you happen to have some spare change, please toss it our way so we can help our Chief. We want to give you the clean voice acting you – as well as the mod – deserve. Our voice actors work with us because of their kind hearts and shared zeal for these mods, with no pay. We can not expect a voice actor with so many lines, given to us for free, to pay for the replacement of their own equipment. We have done this sort of request before, for voice behind our beloved ranger, River.
And now, a word straight from the voice of the chief, Christian Gaughf:
“Greeting, my Sparrows.
Forbidden Love has been a long time coming, and many of you have been patiently awaiting the arrival of the sexy, blonde Forsworn probably for longer than I have. I, we thank you for your patients, and I will do everything I can to make sure you’re not disappointed.
If you’re not familiar with me, I am Christian Gaughf. The voice of Cael. I have always been his voice, but only just recently have I taken it upon myself to be his writer as well. I have been talking with many of you on a personal level via chat, and twitter, and I have been gathering data, finding out what a lot of you liked and disliked about SR3, and have used that information as I write the dialogue.
I want Cael to be the best follower, lover, friend, husband and I want Forbidden Love to be on all of your top 5 favorite mods of all time. I want this mod to be an epic one, which is why I have taken on so many responsibilities. I want this mod to go down as one of the best. And sadly, I need your help to do it.
As some of you may know, on January 22, my home was hit by an F3 tornado. A catastrophe that affects me to this day. It destroyed my sound booth, wrecked equipment, and set me back to square one. The storm damaged not just my recording devices, but ruined me mentally and financially as well.
Over half a year, and I still have not recovered from the costs of cleaning and repairing. If it wasn’t for my brother, I would still likely have no power, or roof. I am flat broke, and my attempts to find another job to help pay for it all has been less than successful. I was never able to replace my equipment, or repair my studio. I want for Cael to be the very best for you, but in order to do that, I need your help.
This is not a donation request for me. This is a request for Cael, and any of my future roles. Any donations I receive will go into purchasing new audio equipment so your favorite Forsworn follower can sound the best that he can. To give him the voice quality worthy of the descendant of the Red Eagle.
Like I said before, none of the donations will go to me, personally, but those of you that do will receive a reward from me. For those of you who donate $5 – $15, you will receive a personal, recorded thank you from the Forsworn Chieftain, himself. Those that donate $20 will receive custom sound file replacers that will replace certain lines of dialogue said by Cael. In these new lines, I will call your character by name, or any name you wish Cael to say.
The $20 reward does come with a few rules, however:
Keep it serious and PG. No Ms. Maggot Cheese, or Lady Asshat.
Names only. No statements, or long chants, or anything like that.
Keep in mind that the $20 reward can only be given after the mod has come out, but you will also receive the personal thank you as well.
If you don’t want to donate, or can’t, you can also help me by spreading the word about my book, Black Hearts: The Witch Hunt. This is my baby, and I put my heart and soul into it.
Let me thank all of you in advanced. Not for donating, but for just being my fans. Some of you I have grown to know a little more and consider you as friends too. Thank you all for being there, and enjoying my writing and voice.”
Please do not break the bank to donation to us; we understand if you can’t, your continued praise would be enough for us. All donations we have received go towards website maintenance, but this all goes to help Chris. We thank you for following the development of Forbidden Love and for taking the time to read this post!
Signed with love,
Mara, Christian Gaughf, and Eboni
