Amnesia - Custom Story: Dread of the Unknown - Help Needed!

Hello! I am GeneralCAL, and I am making a CS for Amnesia called Dread of the Unknown. I need help, for monster models and voice actors! It would be appreciated greatly. The characters that need voice acting are Bartholomew Bland, a 19th century American from Pennsylvania; Archibald Bland, a 19th century teenager from Pennsylvania; Richard of Adlington in Lancashire (the antagonist), a 19th century Brit - maybe with a voice similar to Alexander's?; somebody who could make the voices of 7 brothers who are servants (do whatever you want with the voices, it doesn't matter, but this role would probably be better once I post some screenshots of the servants); and 7 people who could make voices for the monsters. Also, if someone experienced could completely remodel the Grunts, Brutes, and Suitors once I post a thread with their descriptions, along with some ideas of some custom monsters (humanoid, please! Big Grin), that would be great. Thanks!

Well, just know that getting ahold of a custom monster isn't quite that easy. Most people won't just make them for anyone online for free, so either you'll need to personally know someone who's able or actually pay for it. Monster modelling can take weeks, so you're lucky if you can find someone willing to do it for free.

As for voice actors, yeah those are more common. You might be able to find people around here able to help you out. I do suggest that you describe the characters a bit more though. Personality, tone of voice, etc.

Okay, thanks! I'll post the personalities and stuff in a comment. Could you do monster modeling or know anyone who can?

Archibald is a kind 15 year old teenager who is a little melancholy from his father's death, as his father was close to him. His voice is deep, but sometimes squeaks. He has a rich Pennsylvanian accent, and he generally sounds flabbergasted and shocked. His father, Bartholomew Bland, is a 30-78 year old man (depending on the time period of the note) who sometimes sounds malicious and viciously triumphant, but sometimes sounds regretful and even melancholy. He has a deep British voice, a Cockney accent to be specific. Richard of Adlington is the supposedly late heir of Adlington Hall who didn't actually die, so he has a cold, secretive air about him and a voice almost like Alexander's from the main game, a cold voice that seems to be holding back malicion. He has a Lancashire accent mixed with traces of a Scottish accent. The 7 brothers all are cold-hearted murderers and torturers with Scottish accents; there is Percival, William, Hugh, Robert, Victor, Lucas, and Harris Willow; Percival has the highest voice, then Harris, Victor, Lucas, William, Hugh, and then Robert.

^It might be easier to separate out each character/character group so that we aren't just looking at a blob of text.

Personally, I have a tough time focusing and so looking at that paragraph is a little mind-numbing.

But I wish you well on your endeavors.

For voice actors, there are plenty of online sites and forums (such as Behind the Voice Actors, Voice Acting Club, Voice Acting Alliance).

While for modeling, if there's no one available to help you here, I would suggest the Blender forum or even looking at DeviantArt, though as Mudbill said, you should probably expect to pay for their time.

There is always the option of modeling yourself if you have the time to learn. Sculptris and of course Blender are always good ways to go.

Thanks AGP!! Yeah, I actually havent seen anyone who could model new monsters... Undecided I'll definitely look for voice actors, maybe on soundcloud.com or somewhere similar.
