* bump. :)

Would be nice if this could get stickied.
You'd think Darkmoor was a ghost town, but instead there's plenty of life among the dead.

Sadly I'm incopetent in both programming and art, but I'm an aspiring writer and a storyline maniac. I'd happily handle some dialogue (since I hear that the storyline's already complete anyway). You can send me a priv with instructions if you'd like me to do some of those.

Aspiring writers are usually among the least necessary personnel for these kinds of projects.

I can help if you need a Java/C#/python/PHP/HTML/SQL programmer. But if it's C++ or just plain art, then apologies.

Really sad that almost every single Might and Magic mod that I followed has died. There was so much potential in all of them.

It's death is almost inevitable. The project is too big and, unlike games such as Mount and Blade or Skyrim, it's very hard to mod Might and Magic due to a lack of modding platform.

M&M Tribute, GrayFace's mod, WoG, and Equilibris are exceptions rather than the norm.

Though the game didn't come to fruition, I learned a valuable skill during the time I was on the team. I learned how to make sound effects in Audacity. Here, you'll see what three years can do for you if you practice a skill often enough:

This is an RPG I'm working on called Uniques United. Everything you hear in this video, from the combat, to the magic spells, the hits and whooshes, everything was hand-designed. I wouldn't have been able to do stuff like this if it weren't for Children of the Void, as ill-fated as the game was. If you have no skills and want to make your own game, join a fan project and build up your skills.
