Author Comments

Hey, guys! So here's something a little different from me; a nifty little podcast about the Audio Deathmatch that's currently underway. We're about halfway through the Auditions right now and this seems like a good way to offer up info and maybe even get a few more people to participate!

I am your emcee for the proceedings, along with my 2nd in command, TaintedLogic. Tremendous thanks to him for helping out so much with the overwhelming job of sending out over 900 invitations! Not to mention his invaluable opinion as a Hand of Fate (aka judge).

Special thanks to ninjamuffin99, Samulis, TomFulp, and ZipZipper for their prize donations!

Your 2017 Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch Hands of Fate consist of Bosa, ChronoNomad (me), EDM364, Hikari, Samulis, SkyeWint, and TaintedLogic! Yes, there are seven judges this year. Whoa...

ChronoNomad (me again) and TaintedLogic will be The Great Heralds of all that is Audio Deathmatch-related. And LucidShadowDreamer will make occasional posts on the contest's behalf as our preeminent Scribe.

Many thanks to Ceevro for his artistic talents and providing some nice imagery for this year's NGADM!

Background music: Whispers of Remembrance and an excerpt from Wind Requiem - Chill Mix. Both can be found in my Audio submissions from 2017 and 2015, respectively.

Ah cool, a podcast to go along with this competition! I'm also trying out in the audition phase. I just submitted something for the audition phase. May the most epic music win. :D

Very nice choices for background music by the way. I especially like the fantasy themed cinematic one.

ChronoNomad responds:

I'm glad that you could make it in time for the Auditions! There's a lot of truly epic music this year, of that there can be no doubt. Finding the most epic will indeed be the tough part. ^__^

Thanks! I'm happy to hear that Whispers of Remembrance fills the background so nicely. Having music instead of silence wasn't a difficult choice, but which tracks to use...yeah, that's harder. Your review is very much appreciated. Thanks for listening!

:3 hey chron, do you have a secret robot to help you choose the submissions? cos i don't see how you can count ~200 submissions in a week.

nice work man!

ChronoNomad responds:

A secret robot would be nice, but I have something even better! A handful of talented musicians who can double as highly capable NGADM Hands of Fate. Each one of us is judging every single entry, and that just shows how dedicated these folks are. I was fully prepared to split the workload in half, but these guys were like "No way! That's for wimps."

Ultimately, listening to and scoring each track is a massive undertaking, but totally doable. Thanks for the feedback, man!

I entered too. There's a wide spread of competition out there. I tried my best. I have no regrets.

Lol, Pokemon reference

For real though good luck to all

ChronoNomad responds:

Good luck to all, indeed. And hey, thanks for dropping a quick review! Much appreciated.

Will you travel across the land, searching far and wide? Pokémon references FTW!

Your voice is smexy btw, you should do more podcasts!

ChronoNomad responds:

Haha, thanks a bunch, Ectisity! I think it's safe to say that there will be more. :D

If you make more of these, I will listen (even if i fail to make it past auditions xD)

ChronoNomad responds:

Hey, thanks! That's the current plan. I'll probably be doing one at each stage of the NGADM. ^__^
