We spent some
time evaluating different music to play while running our games sessions.
We came up with quite a few CDs that fit into Fantasy sessions very well,
and a few for Sci-Fi settings. With a bit of trial and error, we managed
to compile CDs for specific adventures. Judicious use of the cd remote control
allowed us to play atmospheric tracks at exactly the right time. The first
time I did this with a hidden CD player, the players nearly jumped out of
- Great soundtrack without too much variation in theme, meaning we play
it on repeat in the background. Buy
the Original CD.
Also available, 'more music from Gladiator'
- A useful CD to play for those barbaric moments, battles and high tension
- The Vangelis version (rather than the orchestral version) is ideal
for playing in the background during near-future sci-fi games. Remember
to edit out the track 'just one kiss' as it spoils the mood! Buy
of the Fall. A brooding soundtrack I like to use a lot, especially
for tension or horror scenes. Buy
The soundtrack from the BBC dramatisation is surprisingly good. Buy
the CD of the BBC series
of the Mohicans, A very Irish sounding soundtrack, ideal for 7th
Sea games. Buy
Some awesome albums
with no relationship to Roleplaying:
of Bruce Dickinson, A special 2 disk version of the Best Of album.
Worth it for 'Jerusalem - Live' alone. Buy
the Special Edition CD
- Highwaysong (LIVE) Fabulous southern boogie. blues 'n' rock in
the vein of Molly Hatchet and CCR. Buy
Livecrime - DVD vsrsion of Mindcrime, the BEST album EVER made. Buy
