Appears Rich Sommer has graciously recorded the narrative moments in the first book of Mice & Mystics. All of the proceeds go to the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund.

That's pretty cool! Glad we haven't started playing it yet. Waiting for my minis to get painted so we delayed starting.

From what I could discover, no. I'm about to go to bed, but I'll download it tomorrow and give some feedback on my thoughts when I get the chance. Someone may beat me to the chase.

Even if it is just okay, the money does go to a good cause.

Yes that is important and motivating.

Just picked it up and listened to the introduction.

Very good reading so far.

I normally wouldn't buy this at all (especially for the price point) but considering that 100% of the proceeds go to the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund I snap bought it in a heartbeat.

This is really awesome of PHG and Rich Sommer. Like, seriously awesome. Also, I think his narrating voice would fit the game fairly well.

10$ for allmost an hour of audio for a game is fine since this is essentially for a charity endeavor rather than a straight up product.

The reading is good and if I can understand it hearing impaired - then that is a good sign for the rest of you.

This is really great, and fantastic of both PHG, and Rich that the proceeds should go to the JVMF.

My only surprise is that "The Voice" wasn't involved.

Employing his soothing vocal abilities would also have been most awesome.

I look forward to downloading this shortly.

This is an awesome idea, already on my iPad! I'd love to see other games too. Descent 2nd Edition, Mansions of Madness, maybe story realms?

After listening to the prologue, I think I would've preferred the trebormills version, but this is a good reading. Worth buying to support Charity and Mice & Mystics.

I bought it and I definitely think it is worth a 10 dollar donation to the Jack Vasel Foundation.

About to play my first session today, but as I am a bit under the weather I wasn't looking forward to reading aloud, and was going to ask someone else to do it. Glad I decided to check the recent BGG posts for the game, this is a great idea overall, and especially useful for me today

Just finished our first game, and with the new mp3s. The whole party loved it! A very worthwhile addition, I recommend using them for sure.

This is a neat idea. What would be even cooler (although incredibly time consuming and expensive) would be to create animated shorts that could be played on a dvd player or laptop to depict the story part of the book. I know it won't happen for this project but if they make a sequel game it would be a great addition to the experience.

This is great, and will be useful for people who don't like to read long text in front of a group.

One thing I thought about when listening to the sample was some background music would be really nice. It's a long wall of dialogue for the intro (over 6 minutes) so would really help. Going to look over my soundtrack collection and see if there's something I can mix in.

The background music from Neverwinter Nights would do well of you can play the BMU files they are saved as. MP-Classic can. Not sure what else.

Video game music works well since it's usually designed to not be too intrusive and loop. I worked on Neverwinter Nights 2 actually. I'll have to check our servers and see where the source files are.

NWN 2 also uses BMU's for the music files. Some sound like re-treads of NWN 1 music though. Not positive on that.
