I forgot to mention in my first entry that I was presented a nice gift to get me started on BloodSpell sound, namely a 2-3 minute segment of foley/ambient work by the original sound designer for the project by the name of Nik. Forgive me for not remembering the backstory, but Nik was unable to continue working on BloodSpell, thus creating the opening I am now filling.
Nik did a terrific job sculpting the audio for the opening credit sequence and a minute or two thereafter in the first episode, and I was able to make use of all of it in the episode 1 tracking. With a dash of effects and some "sweetener" overlay sounds, it fits rather seamlessly into what happens around it. This saved me several hours of foley work, so much appreciated Nik!
