    Lusternia is my first ever MUD and I must say the lore and continually evolving story line are amongst the best I've come across in my history of graphic gaming.

    I was about to start reading the third book when I (finally, derp) noticed the audio file at the top of the page and I'm so glad I clicked it! Listening to the audiobooks -> while questing in Newton -> productivity through the roof, yo. Not to mention you have such a great reading voice which really makes the characters come to life and the overall story much more enthralling (compared to the way it "sounds" in my head when I read it). Many thanks for putting in so much time and effort into making these!

    Final edit: also, these are very professionally done: no background noises whatsoever! Did you use any specialized recording equipment for this?

    I didn't, actually. I use a bog-standard microphone and Audacity. Luckily, Audacity's post-processing is amazing. I'm really glad you found it clear of background noise because often I felt like the quality wasn't quite sufficient :)

    More importantly, welcome to Lusternia! I hope you continue to find things you really enjoy about the game - there are plenty more yet :D

    I only just found these despite them being up for awhile apparently. So much amazing, good work on it!

    The original picture of Turnus is still viewable here, again by Feyrll.

    Would you be willing to do specific lore excerpts from the game, like the text dump about the Vernal Child? That'd be amazing.

    Potentially, but not whilst there are other history books left to do.

    So, the history of the vernal wars was the first one I've listened too. @Tacita, you rock <3. I'm going to download the rest and listen to them when I'm on the train to London tomorrow night.

    These are so much preferable to having to strain my brain with actual reading. And makes for good listening for the hour plus commute I have everyday. You rock Tacita.

    Agreed. Incidentally, the link embedded in the Book of Xyl on the website actually plays the Book of Meridian recording.

    If memory serves this is a known issue which I have reported to Estarra. In the interim, you can find the book on my Soundcloud!

    I admit the Audiobook of Tae had me laughing. Ah Tae, so thick-headed and loveable.

    Found them on the website. Tacita could totally be a voice actor!

    Hi loved the audio books.

    Theres a bit of an error on one of the websites: http://www.lusternia.com/book-of-xyl

    The book of Xyl website has a audio book link to the Book of Book of Meridian.

    Also the main website page that links to the audio books dosnt have anything listed on it at all: http://www.lusternia.com/audiobooks

    Any idea what happened to all of these? :( Don't seem to be working. Wanted to share with @Ghilliweed

    They're still up on SoundCloud if you click on Tacita's links in her posts!

    I can access them just fine via website if you click the Elder Wars histories and click the Soundcloud link above each chapter.

    Huh, it keeps telling me ' Oh No! We can’t find that user.'

    The chronicles of the Holy Celestian empire were sadly left incomplete. The destruction of Old Celest is what followed from the project Cosmic hope as the pool of stars exploded spectacularly during the siege of Old Celest where Ladantine and Marilynth's forces clashed together and destroyed Old Celest, all of its guilds, the imperial army, Princess Marilynth and Emperor Ladantine with it.

    I was so excited to discover this topic.

    But I get the "can't find this user" message on Soundcloud.

    Does anyone know if these files are still working anywhere, in chronological order?

  • DeichtineDeichtine Member Posts: 1,583 Transcendent
    @Mirel
    Go into the actual webpage to listen to them.

    eg 

    https://www.lusternia.com/cosmogenesis

    then
    https://www.lusternia.com/history-of-the-elder-wars
    https://www.lusternia.com/book-of-dracnoris

    The Audiobook link page doesnt work but they are embedded into the actual written page part.
