The Battle of Three Dragon Hill took place in the Stollhofen badlands as part of the Stollhofen campaign of the Niesse Wars. It is noteworthy as an early engagement of Legatus Reiswitz Gustavus leading the 10th and 16th Legions. Facing a “worst-case scenario,” Gustavus’ forces briefly resisted the combined might of three armies: Gloggu, Molwitz, and Bruun. This major engagement became a stern lesson in how to operate when facing orcs at night.

In this blog, I’ll discuss an important tool we use in the audition process that we call audition briefs.

An audition brief is a short document that is sent to an actor who wants an audition. Each role being cast has an audition brief unique to that character. It contains two sections: a one-page character background and several pages of script featuring that character (the industry term for these script pages is sides).

Character Background

I love these characters, and I can’t help but want to share that love with the actors. I like to believe this helps get the actors excited to do their best. Read More
