Jason Hayes Website: Modding Support

The Modding: Voice Acting & Music Category at Jason Hayes website is now open.  If you have a new mod project or if you have talent and a microphone, head over to his Forum and make yourself known in the community.  Star Alliance is part of Jason Hayes’s Modding Community Forum.  Here is an excerpt of the welcome:

The primary aim and purpose of this forum is to bridge the gap between composers and mod-makers, so that mods might have the chance to receive custom music written for them, and so that composers of all skill levels may have the opportunity to work on game projects in a non-commercial context. It is a place for people to meet and discuss ideas, and to collaborate on mod projects.

Mods are game modifications, which are custom content developed by people not associated with the company which created the game. Mods can add to a game elements such as scenarios, campaigns, stories, models, units, sounds, and so on, utilising the game engine as a canvas from which to create new games from.

Arathi Basin Battlegrounds Preview

Arathi Basin Battlegrounds Preview is now available in the North American World of Warcraft website.  Among the most notable features are:

  • Both sides of up to 15 players each compete to occupy the five resource nodes spread throughout Arathi Basin.

  • Each claimed node generates resources for the owning team. The more nodes your team controls, the quicker you gain natural resources. The first team that gains 2,000 resources wins.
  • Both the winning and losing team earn honor after completing an Arathi Basin Battleground, as accumulated resources translate directly into bonus honor for players. Even if you don’t win the Battleground, you walk away with honor.
  • As players compete, they will improve their reputation with the Defilers or League of Arathor, thereby earning many new and powerful rewards.
  • Arathi Basin is banded by level, just like Warsong Gulch. The minimum level to join is 21, and different instances will spawn for players between levels 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, and 51-60.

    Glynnis Campbell New Book Pseudonym

    We are pleased to announce all Starcraft Fans, that Glynnis Talken—voice actress of Kerrigan in Starcraft and Broodwar has won all three Awards of her Medieval Romance Book entries into the Hearts Through History Contest?-for Best Medieval, Best Western, and A Hero for All Time! Categories.  Most notable is that Glynnis Talken has changed her book publisher to Warner with a new Writer pseudonym.  Could you believe which?  Glynnis Talken will be known in the Medieval Romance Book world as SARAH McKERRIGAN.  Glynnis Talken has done voice acting for games like Starcraft, Broodwar, Diablo II and has also been known for the voice behind MTV TheMaxx, and Star Wars Audiobooks.  Due to some terms by Warner, her Glynnis Campbell pseudonym may no longer be used on her new books with Warner, therefore she chose Sarah McKerrigan.  I will have to apologize to Glynnis.  She told me her new pseudonym a month and a half ago, and I sincerely thought she was kidding me.  The Newsletter announcement makes it official.  Read her August Newsletter below …

    Ancients Lore

    Did you ever want to know more about the Ancients of Azeroth?  Some lost their lives during the War of the Ancients, but their legacy allowed their followers and worshipers to continue on their duties.  Among the Ancients we have gathered details are: Malorne, Agamaggan, Aviana, Cenarius, Elune and Ursol & Ursoc the twin bears.  Most of the information is taken from the following references: War of the Ancients Trilogy books, Warcraft RPG: Shadow & Light, Warcraft: Day of the Dragon.  Find out more here

    Devilsaur invades Orgrimmar

    I have seen images and videos of Lord Kazzak causing mayhem in Stormwind, but seriously, I don’t know whether applaud these 10 players from Guild: O o t S Realm: Tichondrius or whether ask them to get a life.  They trained the Devilsaur from Un’Goro all the way up to Orgrimmar going through Thousand Needles, Feralas, Desolace, Stratholme, The Barrens, up to Durotar.  Now . . . that, my friends, is either a waste of long time or an out of proportions adventure.  Take a look at the Screenshot of the Devilsaur entering Orgrimmar City.  There is a bunch of screenshots showing the Devilsaur walk through all Kalimdor zones up to Durotar.
