Hey guys.
I know there are a lot of lore videos out there, but I've always wanted to sit down and read every item description in the game. I thought it would be a lot more fun to listen to someone else read them (in a soothing voice like VaatiVidya or Silver Mont) all sans interpretation, just pure text accompanying screenshots of the item descriptions themselves.

I can't find anything like this with a search. Does anyone know if it's been done?

^That. Also, most of the audience for the item descriptions are lore hounds who would want the description immediately. A video would necessitate an index and would be less convenient.

I've considered doing something akin to this. However, I don't have a proper computer (or way to record my ps3) for it right now.

If someone's got a great voice to do the reading, I'm willing to do all of the video and the section indexing

I had to Google, but that sounds amazing. Haha.
Let's do it!
I'm down if you are.

I think organized alphabetically by item name would be best for the indexing, but also to mix things up so you don't have to listen to 20 descriptions of swords for 10 minutes. There are a lot better ways that it could be organized, I'm sure, but for that you would have to dig deeper into the lore to connect items and back story, and that kind of goes against the point of this in the first place.

I'm a librarian, btw, so organizing things is my bag.

I've looked for that as well and I really can't find anything on it. Best videos to me are EpicNameBro because he always states the description and lore before making assumptions, but they are in different topic videos :P
