Research: Warcries
« on: October 27, 2008, 06:33:24 AM »
According to this thread:

http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,49048.0.html

lumikant agreed to make some voice acting/warcries for Land of Eternal Youth.

My question is: what Celtic/Gaelic/Romano-Brithon/Saxon warcries or taunts do you know? I need to make soon a list of warcries.

Already known a Roman warcry: Nobiscum Deus meaning  "God with us!".

If it helps, I took three years of Latin, so my accent and pronunciation are fairly decent

I don't know if it would be used at such an early period, but in later times the phonetic shortening "Abú!" was a major element of many Gaelic war-cries. Pronounced "ABOO" or "AVOO" (depending on accent and so on) and shouted very loud and drawn out. I think it's a contraction of "a bhuaidh" which is "victorious". Used in the form "X Abú", inserting the name of leader/king or of a clan, or sometimes a symbol. eg. the war cry of the Ui Neill of Ulster was "an lamh dearg abú" meaning "the Red Hand victorious"

As I said that's mostly described quite a bit later (like 14th-17th centuries) but it's worth knowing. I also read something about Brythonic/Welsh warcries not to long ago, I'll have a look for it.

Our research indicates that mass impalement has proven a consistently effective method of conflict resolution.

So, lumikant - try to record only two voices:

"Nobiscum Deus" and "Abú!"

Thanks in advance!

I think that accent on "boo" is correct.

There's about 5 minutes of vocals there. Probably 30 or 35 seconds of it is for this mod.

Btw, that abu shit must have been engineered to make me sound retarded.

Recorded voices are very good!
Keep up the good work, lumikant :).

Is this historical warcry? Or you just invented it?

That was what they said at Hastings. Except, in context, it was a cry demanding the Normans leave (Out! Out! Out!). It'd be out of place in the period.

Lumikant recorded new voice Constans! It's quite amazing, listen:

But I still need some historical voices, so my offer is actual.

So it's 'Constans' and 'cook' (or something). That wasn't much but it sounds good  :P
