My name is Markus and I hail from Finland, the land of frost and snow! I am a cellist, artist, visualist and a true Pagan by heart. My talents are many and besides art and music, I have extended my skills mainly in game design and writing. I have experience in all these fields and creating something visual has always been close to my heart. I am currently working on with a huge module for Neverwinter Nights 2 called "The Moonlight Path". More info can be found from the link of my homepage as well as from modDB.com forums. Help me in my cause, and I am suren to return the favor.

Yes, this is one of my favorites of all the music made for this immense adventure (there is nearly 2½hours of usable music readied over the process), it gives me shivers, emotional rush and makes me think and remember all the things in my past. Beautiful beyond measure.

Oh, a fellow musician I see! Good instruments you've chosen.

Well, I am trying to make TMP at least somewhat openended, a lot more than the original NWN2 campaign anyway. Because it was too linear and it kind of kills the excitement of adventure. That's why I have chosen to make two quite different paths for Good and Evil characters, so that either wont visit same places as the other.

I played Morrowind and were disappointed to quite a many things in it, save for the open-ended world provided. Oblivion I never played though.

When I make the DA:Origins adventure, I a quite sure to make it more open-ended than the TMP adventure ;) .

Do you take part in any mod-making or such, by the way?
And thanks for interesting questions, glad someone has something to ask from me, heheh.

Interesting comments but thank you all anyway.
As I told, these are over a year old test-lines (notice TEST-lines)
which I first-hand give to any willing actor to attempt voiceacting so
see what he/she is even capable of doing, if nothing at all.

The sound-quality isn't that good in this file, I know I know, so shut it about that one ;P ... I will upload more when I get some proper lines to my possession and let's see then how the sound-quality and other aspects have been increased.

Yes, I agree that minimalistic scores can be quite impressive at times as well, no need for full symphony/orchestras always; Arcanum of Steamworks & Obscura being one of the greatest examples of this, having just a quartet.

And yes, as a cellist, solo cello truly is something that can set a great mood to a setting.

Hi.

Both ALPHA and BETA will be released as a separate releases, after which we will release the main storyline; The Moonlight Path.
Reason for this is actually the lack of resources and certain aspects to release the full adventure. Thus I will release to prologues that have vital ties to the actual storyline of TMP itself.

Hope this sheds some light to our obscure doings.

to indoor areas. You should someday see the pictures of the NWN 1 version of The Moonlight Path, the amount of detail in in- and outdoor areas was stupendous, even if I do say so myself. Don't ask why I didn't finish it, or at least the first part, for NWN 1 ....simply because I was stupid.
