Ah, then the pauses make a bit more sense then from the fitst, and now that I carefully listen I can hear the "would be" instead of the "wimpy" that I heard. It is a tough balance between odd voice, and normal understandable pronunciation without hitting that uncanny valley feeling when you don't want to. (a side note, I do not know much about recording but I thought I might be able to comment on quality ;) )
I might as well critique :)
So the first one was pretty good quality, just the pauses felt a tad bit too long, especially on the last one when you could hear a fleeting breath in the middle, I would shorten these times a bit myself.
For the second one, I don’t know if it is supposed to be the same person who is all powerful, or 2 beings that are merging together, heck it sounds like 3 or 4 different beings are being shown here. In each phrase it sounds inconsistent in voice, if it is the same person, I might conciser making them a bit more consistent in voice, while still doing some of the cool multi-voice effects. Also a nit-pick, when you say “wimpy emperor” I think of some 10 year old bully trying his hand at insulting someone. A word like “puny” or “petty” may fit the vocabulary of a really powerful and old being.
That’s all for now, you have certainly improved from what I can tell.
