Both Safehold and Honnorverse have their casting threads, time we had for War god as well.

I admit I'm struggling to come with good names for most but I do think that Liam Nissen would be excellent for Wencit, his time as Qui Qon Jin shows he can do "Wizard" well, plus he has the sword skills for those times when wencit doesn't use his magic.

I think animated due to the various physiologies.
Who to do the voices might be a good thread.

I'm thinking that it will be necessary to raid the NBA or College Basketball for Bazhel and friends.

Nah.

Shaq is too old and fat for the part. Plus he's just a terrible actor.

I think you've got something there TL. The quality of many animated works today is amazing and there is a large pool of very talented voice actors to draw on.

Just my opinion of course and probably not worth the paper it's not written on.

Animated or CGI would be a good way to show the various races differences. As for voices; wow we can run wild with who should voice whom.

Michael Dorn for Bahzell
James Earl Jones for Bahzell's father Bahnak
Liam Neeson for Wencit of Rum
Patrick Stewart for Baron Tellian

For a larger list we would need to decide on which books are being rendered.

Another idea is to use totally new voice actors. So that people expectations are more controlled.

No, No; you need James Earl Jones (though a younger version) for Tomanak Orfro, whenever he makes an appearance or a pronouncement.

intresting suggestions.

Michael dorn works well for bashell and have to agree that if we get james earl jones then he has to be Tomonak.

who for brandark? or Walsarno?

Brandark has to be Nathan Fillion in a voiceover. Best snark voice actor.
