You know what I find sad about this game?

There are no credits. I have played a few other online games they have credits. Voice over artists, 3D model makers, 2D artwork, etc.. This game seems to have none within it or any listed on the official website. I would not like working for a company that didn't give me credit for my hard efforts. The best I could find for credits on this game is a completely unaffiliated webpage --> Neverwinter Credits <-- but that isn't a complete list.

Well maybe you have to beat a campaign for the credits to roll? I know when I beat the 3rd campaign and kill Abaddon in Guild Wars they have a long run with credits at the end. Other games have buttons in the menus, but I didn't find any. Then again maybe they don't want their name on this project. For example, I am a database manager for a large company, I wouldn't exactly be thrilled to hire anyone who currently works on the networking connections for this game. But the art and some of the models are pretty nice. If they ever add a voice over credit for Sgt. Knox, it will be at least 5 or 6 people long. ;)

How do you think they should give the workers credit?

    We have this thread too:

    http://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/neverwinter#/discussion/529061/official-neverwinter-voice-cast/p1

    And various media sources where a particular dev is given credit for their work on a particular thing in more depth.

    On the subject of voiceovers, I can frequently tell which of their established actors has done the voicing for a new NPC. Dave Rivas is the Stronghold Ranger. Some of his lines had just a little too much Chettlebell in the recording; he changed it a bit for lines that were recorded later, so now that NPC's voicing is inconsistent. Lani Minella is the Stronghold Builder, who sounds almost exactly like Dusty Yates.

    I had to think for a bit to place Sybella, but she's got a lot of Yina Morradi in her and a little of Grace Rathburn (despite having only one spoken line, afaik). Back-referencing from that, we find Erin Ashe.

    Joe Lyford was Knox's original voice, but he left Cryptic and you can tell that recent Knox has been voiced by someone else. Multiple someones? I'm not sure.

    The strangest recent voice-over change? Start a new toon and meet your second NPC, Linkletter for the first time...not only is this, and just this interaction, a new voice, but its text is radically different from the visual script. Considering how many times you potentially speak with Josef over the course of leveling, this is decidedly odd. I'm guessing that the original sound file had to be replaced in a hurry...

    Its not that odd. Knox's voice changes several times, depending on the place or campaign you talk to him. And he is a far more central character.

    The only character voice change that I really didn't like (well, outside of Linu and the Demon Hunter in IWD), is Elminster.

    In WoD, he sounds like a cross between Billy Connolly and Sean Connery (very Deckard Cain-ish), but during the Jubilee (at least, last year), he sounded like Bob from Maintenance.

    Bob from maintenance must have a lot of parts. Especially in Elemental Evil. Some of that stuff just screams "we don't have money to hire actual voice actors."

    Bob is a versatile dude, for sure.

    wants Jame earl jones or lawrience fishburne to voice for Knox.

    Sorry to disagree with you kacezet, but have you LOOKED in there? That is a small 3 column listing without any mention of job reference. For all a person who reads this knows, who work at which company. I couldn't tell you if Matt Fraser is a 3D model maker or some HAMSTER who fetched coffee. Voice over people are NOT listed in there at all. They don't give credit for 2D artwork or who did programming or what kind of programming.

    Also I now know why I never seen this, I actually have to "Log Out" instead of hitting the EXIT button as I normally do. This is a very odd way to place the "credits" if you can even call them that at all.

    Yes that is why I like him, he has such a colorful dialog in all his movies and I enjoyed his portrayal of Officer Frank Tenpenny in GTA San Andreas.

    Circumventing the profanity filter may end up in your comment edited to something ridiculous.

    Sad about a lack of credits? No offense, but since mod6, i give not much credit to this game anymore...
    I'll tell you what's sad ! The constant grind, the price of the items, the massive gap in the game content, the loss of foundry quests... Credits... seriously...
