Heroes Chronicles English intro?

I found GOG's HC intros aren't all in English, but some of them in German.

After a series of search, I think the original US/UK edition games have lost, so I can't find original English vid files, all I can find is a video on youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0E2VsjgYHo0).

I want to have a full transcript of these intros, but my English is too bad to handle it myself. Can somebody help me and write down what narrator says?

(And, if someone has the original English vid, I want the smk files of Warlords of the Wastelands, Conquest of the Underworld, and The Last Chapters.)

Hey. Here ya go if you still need this. There are two words I couldn't figure out, what with SFX blasting over the narrator's monologue. At 0:33 min and at 3:00 min.

Warlords of the Wasteland
Tarnum was a barbarian king before he became the immortal hero. For years no one could stop his reign of terror. But all things must come to an end. Upon his death he entered the legendary Hall of Judgement to stand before the ancient council. There the ancestors found him unworthy of entering paradise. So they cast him back among the mortals whereÖ ah, but I get ahead of myself. You wanted to know how he became king.

Conquest of the Underworld
Ever have a dream you canít quite shake? Itís called a vision and Queen Allison had a nasty one. Her fatherí soul was torn from paradise and dragged into the underworld. Alison called for a hero to champion her. But only one responded. Tarnum.

Masters of the Elements
The elemental lords, masters of Air, Earth, Water, and Fire, were free to tear the world apart now that a ten thousand year truce had come to an end. Only one with a powerful command over magic could stand a chance against them. So why did the ancestors call on a barbarian who hates magic to save us all?

The World Tree
Somewhere in the dark tunnels beneath the earth was the world tree. The wellspring of life. Tarnum had to find it before the insane ancestor Vorr and his minions, the necromancers, destroyed it. But how does one kill a god?

The Fiery Moon
Tarnumís defeat of Vorrís allies, the necromancers, saved the world tree from destruction but as long as Vorr was still out there Tarnumís task was far from over. What worried him most was the silence of the ancestorís. Had they forsaken him? Or was it something more sinister?

Revolt of the Beastmasters
Tarnum awoke chained to the dank wall of an Arathian dungeon. A slave. The ancestors had sent him here to free the mudlanders and lead them back to their homeland. His were the first bonds to be broken. But they would certainly not be the last.

Clash of the Dragons
Immortality has a drawback. Loneliness. But Tarnum found friendship with the long-lived dragons. And happiness in the joy they drew from each day. Then, one bleak morning, the dragons disappeared. Gone without explanation. And it was up to Tarnum to find out why.

The Sword of Frost
If Tarnum had known beforehand how things would end, he would not have held back. He would have surrendered his soul completely to his darkest desires. Nothing would have kept him from claiming the Sword of Frost.

Wow, thanks a lot!

In the past time, I have got some help from my friends, but we still can't figure out some words and their meaning. Such as, "mortals where" (I believe it should be "mortals world" or something) and "a dream you canít quite shape" (I think "quite shake" more make sense).

I will check yours and improve mine.

The narrator says "So they cast him back among the mortals, where ... ah, but I get ahead of myself."

I think "shape" was actually "shake", but that it got mangled in the sampling of the sound fragment.

The narrator says "Tarnum awoke, chained to the dank wall of an Erathian dungeon. A slave ... the Ancestors had sent him here to free the Mudlanders and lead them back to their homeland."

Oh, thanks Maurice!

I also think
"Her father' soul was torn from paradise and dragged into the underworld."
should be
"Her father's soul was pulled from paradise and dragged into the underworld."


And the Queen should be "Allison" not "Alison".

Thanks Maurice. I've edited my previous post.

Changing upon with among gave it all sense now.
Should definitely be shake. It's how the actual saying goes too.
