    ^^

    Now you make yourself sound like a politician and simply dogde the question.

    I asked you if YOU did any of the voice acting^^ I can hardly see the connection between that and the other voice actors being anonymous, because i am fairly sure you could not resist to place your own sexy voice within your own campaign haha ;) ..

    Feedback

    here are some suggestions:
    1. you should fix the gryphon aviary. It can be built with the keep, but it can produce no units or upgrades. I suggest you make dragon hawk rider be available with the keep, without the need to upgrade to castle.
    2. you may want to consider modifying the interval for Siphon Mana ability or Drain Life ability to be shorter. Here is how I did it in my map.
      Samples

      I think it is better like this, well... that's more realistic. My opinion.
      *Do not let the fractions tease you. They are not dropped: they are calculated as they are.
    3. Mend does not heal extra points to banished units.
    4. Your campaign has nice hotkeys. however, there is one flow with the dwarves that both the "Hold" button and the "storm hammer" has the hotkey "H". Thus, we cannot press "Hold" with H.
    5. Don't you think Mana burn do not integrate with Mana Siphon ability of the Blood Mage? If his enemy has little mana, it will always go to 0 and thus he will not be able to drain it.
    6. The final chapter was difficult when I first played it. But the last time I played it, it was pretty easy ( regardless that the difficulty was easy) Because I attacked with Rowan first, Then Dwarves, then Blood elves; unlike the first time when I attacked with all together and lost with the blood elves.
      I think you should make the undead help each other or make some advantage when all bases attack together.

      still it is really fun to play.
    Edit: Not sure about last point. I played it on hard, and it was like...****
    Good job.

    Many of the later-game challenges feel forced, and rigged (think end-game mission of Eternity's End in the Reign of Chaos campaign streak; too many enemies, little realism, etc.). The voice acting is atrociously mundane at best and awkward and outright laughable at worst. Your voice acting should sound LIKE what your character is. Rowan is supposed to be a wise character, yet he constantly is deceived and follows advice and orders from people who are - let's face it - borderline retarded. This makes him a funny character who should sound more supremely confident in his superiors and in his orders. The voice acting makes him sound like a downright doofus at times, although other times he sounds like a guy with a good head on his shoulders.

    Whoever did the mastering for the campaign needed to remove noise for a few transmissions, as well. It's incredibly easy, even in Audition - which, I sense, is what you guys used to do this. Use the Noise Removal option to cut the static out. It's unnecessary.

    The scene with Uther almost caused me to rupture my ribcage with laughter. This would normally be fine, but you then ask the player to maintain a serious attitude towards things. I feel like the whole mood of the campaign would have been improved if the voice acting had been presented better and the Uther sub-plot was more fleshed out (and less silly). If you wished to make a silly campaign, why not make a silly one?

    The voice acting for every elf character, minor or major, is ridiculously high-pitched (with the occasional exception of the Sylvanas replacement). Why is Kael's replacement so high-pitched? The voice actor must have been ten (or any small child off of XBox LIVE). Much of the stock unit line acting feels forced, as well (e.g. Footmen and Knights talking to Rowan).

    Many of the normal campaign heroes like Kel'Thuzad and Malganis appear in this campaign, but are never really mentioned. It would have been nice to see something on them, although I suppose it really doesn't matter. The whole mission defending the Dalaran Archmagi feels pointless, although it offers a unique gameplay challenge (and is one of the more memorable parts of the campaign, as a whole). One thing that felt awkward was the spacing and distance of the base and the entrances. It made it difficult to reinforce your armies, although I suppose that was to encourage the use of Tara's Mass Teleport spell. At any rate, something feels relatively awkward with the mission.

    Despite my qualms with the plot's fidelity and the voice acting (and they are legion), my praise for this campaign is its presentation. It includes all the proper elements of gameplay and cinematic execution, for the most part, and although the challenges feel lazy at times and brutally rigged at other times, the campaign has a desirable quality to it. I would suggest rehashing the dialogue for grammar and syntax errors and modifying the transmissions for a possible unvoiced version, though (and a lot of attention at the Uther subplot). I think the campaign could benefit from it.

    I'm done rambling now. Have fun.

    The Adventures of Rowan the Wise is in for some major changes. I am currently updating the campaign, which will be available within a month or so.

    Here are a few of the main changes I will be making:
    - A bug will be fixed where the gameplay of certain chapters will set to Hard version in Normal version. In addition, The Adventures of Rowan the Wise’s difficulty system will be changed to the same system used in Resurrection of the Scourge
    - Major gameplay changes in Chapters 2, 5 & 10
    - Several sound recordings will be replaced, as well as a few bad characters being completely redone
    - Numerous bugs will be fixed; including the Town Portal problem in Chapter 1, bridge pathing problems in Chapter 9, and in several parts of the campaign where creeps do not drop items in Hard version
    - Several spells will be edited, including room for some new custom spells

    I can supply you with voice acting, if you're still looking for male characters.

    Sure. I am currently looking into voice acting for the following characters:

    - Lord Nicholas Buzan
    - Demon Summoner
    - Priest (High Elf)

    Let me know if you think your voice will suit any of these characters.

    Achilees said something that fell on my mind
    Custom voices
    I think Logan's custom voice is just too childish. -.-

    I have arranged for Logan's current voice recordings to be replaced.

    Be assured that the AI will be made a bit easier in Normal version.

    wait wait wait, are you replacing dwarf's hero's voice actor? C'mon, his voice acting is too great to be replaced, so I hope you keep him.

    and Logan, if he was blood mage or elven ranger general, they are fine with me, but not as good as dwarven hero, so they can be replaced.

    Those who needs replacement are, as far as I recall, Uther and the night elves in some chapter in the beginning. It was some time ago since I last played it though: keep that in mind

    I'm only going to replace some heroes. Nathan the Mighty is fine and will not be replaced.
