There and back again, a Neverending tale.
#1
So recently, I got it in my head to go back and re-film all of Neverending Nights in 1080p HD (originally it was in like 800x600 or possibly even worse, back in 2004).

I plan on releasing each new HD version every Saturday (released 3 so far)... Unfortunately, the audio is all the original (I try to clean it up where I can and improve it)...

You can go to our channel and select the Playlist: Neverending Nights - 1080p HD

If you're not familiar with what "machinima" is; the long and short of it, is using an existing game to create your own videos (but modifying, taking control, etc).

We began Neverending Nights, back in 2004 (November) and it ran 65 episodes (Jan 2013). I thought I was done, until, as I said above, I wanted to go back and re-film all the episodes in true HD!

The story's main focus is two (would be) heroes, off to slay a dragon... and everything that happens to them when they set off on this comedic adventure!

I've subscribed to this thread, so if there's any comments, questions, etc - I'd love to hear it! (Or you can post them on the videos!)

Just wanted to say this is still going and on episode 15.

Episode 15 in HD is available!

How can the situation for Peter and Grayson get any worse? Just watch, because it certainly does! BUT - Peter has come up with a new plan as they travel the deserts of Arreis! Will it work out? (Are you really wondering if it will? Because if you are, you've not been watching this show!) This episode also brings back a familiar face! (And foreshadows the coming of another character...)

Peter & Grayson's luck can't remain "bad" all the time right?

Well, their luck finally takes a turn and Peter & Grayson seem to get a break! Also, the episode ventures around back to Pawl the Dorf whose luck also changes!

This episode introduces four new characters to the series!

Peter and Grayson head to the "Hero's Bar & Keep" for a drink... and a show? Things take a very strange twist for our dynamic heroes... very strange indeed... and the lady, seen at the pier previously (where Alan the Astounding most recently passed out), makes her presence known... and how does that tie in to our would be heroes? Watch Episode 17 of Neverending Nights and see!

Still do these... (though not sure if anyone here is interested, since I've not seen any comments!) Smile

EPISODE 31: SIDE EFFECTS... MAY VARY.

With Peter and Grayson paying for Pawl the Dorf's reincarnation, the dynamic duo realizes they're in need of more funds again. Lucky for them, the City of Blackmire has the one place Peter and Grayson know very well - second only to the layout of a good, drinking tavern - and that is - a Wishing Well. When Grayson dives in to scrounge up some coins, a young girl tells them about the curse of those, whose wishes become undone when coins are stolen. (Who could this possibly impact? Well, this episode tells you that!) At the same time, Pawl the Dorf talks to the odd priest about doing a reincarnation - and the two of them complete the spell - but at what price?

Thank you good sir! I fixed it in my post as well. Smile

I loved the gag with the Dwarf / Goblin thing. Don't want to give too much away.

I must say I am not a big fan of Dwarves with Scottish accents. That is one legacy of Peter Jackson's film-making I wish would fade into the mists of time, but it probably is here to stay.

Heh. What's funnier - if you've not yet realized, the connection is intended. For example, Albert the Goblin represents Grayson the Fighter, Charlie the Goblin represents Peter the Ranger and Bob represents Pawl the Dorf (you can tell by the weapons each carries). So that "connection" that happens in this episode was only natural. Big Grin

Hah! When we did this - we told Paul (who voices Pawl the Dorf) to come up with a Scottish/Irish/Pirate type accent - that was super exaggerated. And that's what he came up with. It's explained in a previous episode, that he wasn't even raised by Dwarves, and has a very normal "accent" (US American). This is also why the Priest points out "I've never heard that kind of accent before" in this episode.

It's all because this is how Pawl the Dorf _thinks_ Dwarves talk like. Smile

And THANK YOU for checking out the episode and commenting! Love engaging folks who check out the show. Smile

Never posted the link to 36 on here... but...

At long last...

Episode 37 (HD) - Crime Does Not Pay.
In this episode... not many characters are safe, as Death sweeps through the cast of characters, claiming several lives before this episode ends... who will survive? Peter? Grayson? Pawl? All? None? Who? WHO? Well. Watch the video (over and over and over and over) and see who will survive!
