Project Main Details

Torment Tides of Numenera 
"Torment: Tides of Numenera" is a game from inXile entertainment set in the world of Monte Cook's new tabletop RPG setting, Numenera. Torment continues the thematic legacy of Planescape: Torment, the critically acclaimed role-playing game from 1999 that's considered by many to be a hallmark for storytelling in computer RPGs. With Torment, inXile is creating a rich role-playing experience that explores similar deep, personal themes. This game is nonunion game funded through KickStarter."

The character of Tybir is a smooth and talkative old soldier and unscrupulous con man searching for the lost love of his life. He is smooth, slick, and lecherous. Your dirty friend who delights in dragging you into trouble because you're going to get some good stories out of it. Not a scumbag, but a bravo - someone with the swagger of a Musketeer. Note: Please use the following links to view videos that give the feel of the character we are looking for. We don't want impressions, and no accents, just the essence and attitude of the character.

For the audition, please read the lines in the Short Script section. There are three shorter lines with specific direction. For the lines under "Long Sample," the setup is Tybir is talking about an object that creates powerful mind-sharing powers. In this particular case, these mind-sharing powers brought about unknown feelings between him and his best friend.

Script Details

1) Smooth: Most of what he says is calculated at getting him what he wants.
a) “My friend, what you need is a drink. And by amazing coincidence, so do I. What say you buy us one?" You need a kindly old uncle to show you around. And I'll do until one comes along.”

2) Unflinching: Tybir has seen a lot in his life, and is very hard to shock.
a) “Don’t stumble after a woman who has no interest in you. Have some pride, lad! I know at least three shape-shifters who charge reasonable hourly rates.”

3) Haunted: Underneath the pride at his own cleverness, Tybir feels guilt over the friends he’s left behind over the years. The charm falls out of his voice when he speaks of them.
a) “You look like you’ve seen a ghost. Not that I'm one to judge. Got a few of my own.”

Long Sample:
{fond, comedic} "Auvvie used those things to turn a potential bloodbath into the biggest orgy I've ever seen. Back in the early days, the mind-sharing powers of those rings were... well, they were stronger. And even though we were far from the, ha, fighting, we felt the effects. We stood there, watching the magic unfold below, and gradually felt each other's thoughts creeping into our heads."

{Somber – this is the moment he and his ex-lover realized they were in love} "Finally, he turns to me and says, 'You should have said something sooner.' And he puts his hand in mine."
