Attendees Called On to Bring their Voices and Monster Sounds for New SoundSet for The Dragon’s Demand
Syrinscape Creator and Dicestormers Host Benjamin Loomes to be Special Guest at Annual Celebration of All Things Pathfinder
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (May 14, 2015) – Syrinscape, the app that puts the power of custom, movie-like sound effects, soundscapes, and music, into the hands of the gamer, announces today its plans for PaizoCon 2015 (Seattle, WA, May 22 – 25, 2015).
Syrinscape creator, and host of the popular YouTube gaming show The Dicestormers Benjamin Loomes, returns to PaizoCon as Special Guest, and DJ for the wildly popular Friday Night Pathfinder Special gaming event, Siege of Serpents, from 7pm – midnight. Siege of Serpents is a multi-table interactive adventure in which each group’s actions contribute to the entire room’s success. With hundreds of Pathfinders playing in an epic campaign, Loomes will add realistic sound effects, soundscapes, and music, transforming the ballroom into the world of Golarion, using Syrinscape’s custom sounds for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
Syrinscape also announces today, attendees of PaizoCon 2015 will be called upon to help create sounds for a variety of fantastic monsters and creatures, to be included in the forthcoming The Dragon’s Demand SoundPack from Syrinscape! The Syrinscape stand at PaizoCon will serve as the recording studio, and fans are encouraged to conjure their best sounds for Kobolds, Grioths, a selfish Green Dragon, and the Gibbering Mouther, among others. Attendees with the most-creative sounds will be included in The Dragon’s Demand SoundPack, and will receive free the finished SoundPack for this beloved game module, as well as a name credit on the product.
GMs looking to add another dimension to their gaming table will get pro-tips on incorporating sound into their game via Loomes, along with F. Wesley Schneider, Paizo’s Editor-In-Chief, and Paizo Creative Director James Jacobs, on the Music and Ambiance in RPGs seminar.
The Syrinscape app Fantasy Player and Sci-Fi Player bring fantastic, realistic sound to tabletop gaming. Each is available free for 30 days, and includes 2 free SoundSets to keep after the trial. The Syrinscape app is compatible with a wide range of devices, including PC, Mac, Android Tablets, and ipads.
