    Fallout: Equestria Audiobook Auditions

    Hello everypony, this is Firebolt from Nimbus Productions telling you about a new project that we are going to be starting. After a lot of thinking it over we have decided to start a voiced reading of Fallout: Equestria! For those of you that are not familiar with the fic, it is about 600,000+ words and has a LOT of characters. That's where you come in. I am officially opening up auditions for the fic, you can find a character list with descriptions and audition lines here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-oNgR0qitnDsWspHmxLxc6ITSO5AxN9YrwvErK43Voo/edit?usp=sharing

    When auditioning for a character please make a separate audio file for each character and save each of them in this format: (Character you are auditioning for)_(Your name).mp3. Please send only MP3 or WAV files. You can send your files to me via Skype (username: matthew.woida1) or email me at platinuminfernolightning3@gmail.com.

    As a disclaimer, Fallout: Equestria is a dark fic that contains excessive violence, strong language, and drug use. So make sure that you are okay with these things before you audition for the fic. The due date for auditions is June 20th.

    Thank you, and I hope to hear all of your auditions!

    Uncover The Truth - The Interactive Story

    You see I've have been planning a project for a little while now called "Uncover The Truth". In this, players will be able to access file's each week. Some will be strait up puzzles, others will take time to solve. The goal is to find out what really is going on in the company "M.L.D.P". The interaction from players is simple, each week they can send a email to mldpsecure5@gmail.com with information they have learned and what they want to find out next.

    However I have files to

    Pounce 24 Hour Fundraising Livestream

    After some "minor" technical difficulties that almost caused us to pause the whole shebang (read: computer almost blew up), it looks like we're going to be okay!

    Alrighty, here's the skinny!

    I'm in pretty dire straights here.  Had a stroke in January.  Got about $70,000 in medical bills, no work, a bad arm, and no money.  The government doesn't want to help me, and people don't want to hire me because half of my body is all wibbly-wobbly.  I'm raising money for the bills before I become homeless at the end of the month.

    I've decided to extend the fundraiser to each weekend in June.  That's the 31st-1st, 7th-8th, 
    14th-15th, 21st-22nd, and 27th-28th.  Each show will be 24 hours, from 9pm - 9pm (PST).  This month we'll be playing a wide variety of games, like Watch_Dogs, WildStar, Hearthstone, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, and more.

    Link is here in case you need it again: http://www.twitch.tv/pouncivalgaming/

    As a little bonus for everypony, I've decided to offer some incentive to the donators.  If, by the end of June, we're able to raise $5,000 or more, I will dye my hair, both head and beard, pink (or purple, or whatever other pastel pony color they decide upon).  I'll even film it, if I am able.  The way I figure, donating for a charitable cause is great and all, but there's nothing wrong with getting a little return on your investment, eh?

    And that's it.  Five weekends, 120 hours (assuming I don't keel over), a bunch of games, and maybe pink hair at the end of it all.  I'd be lying if I said my back wasn't up against the wall here, so all the traction/exposure you can help me generate is most welcome.  I would really prefer to not get booted out of my apartment.
