So I had an idea for an evil female mage with plenty of sass to go through the Baldur's Gate Trilogy, and the archetype I kept going back to in my mind was none other than Morrigan. So I figure why not her? Of course I'll probably take a different name to keep immersion for the story (but then again, maybe not). Thus I set about scouring the Internet for a perfect portrait.
That was when I realized that so much of the character is lost without Claudia Black's amazing vocal performance, and I just had to go the whole hog. So I spent around seven hours going through over 180 minutes of 2-10 second clips of Morrigan's sound files to find the perfect clips for each piece of a custom sound set that has quickly become my favorite. The recording is high quality and blends perfectly with the other voices in game.
Then I figured, why put in all that work only to enjoy it to myself? Surely someone out there might benefit?
The sound set is 99% complete and should be fully functional with both BG1 and 2, missing only a third Battle Cry (which frankly I figured was unnecessary), so you can use this voice for any female character with a bit of snark about her. There is a decidedly dark bent to any character using this voice, or at least a dark sense of humor, so it probably shines best with evil characters.MORRIGAN SOUND SET
