Background Music of Zalanthas
« on: April 25, 2009, 07:33:15 PM »
What I tend to do when playing Arm (especially RTPs) is tossing in a song or two in loop that generally fit the theme of what's going on. If some of you do that, or could purely hypothetically imagine themselves doing it too, what music would you play and on what occassions?

To give it a start:

Black metal. Particularly more atmospheric black metal like Drudkh. Emperor is also good. Though mainly in times of peril.

Wait, best band for arming...Agalloch.

I dunno, for some reason I get a distinct black metal vibe when playing armageddon. go figure.
Free your hate.

I usually do metal, but I have a hard time finding music for my current (non-combative) PC, so I usually play in silence.

Background music from other games, usually. Or soundtracks from movies such as 300 or Gladiator. Here's some examples:

If there's something playing while I'm playing, I'll get distracted and start singing along, and forget what I'm doing on Arm. Total focus. I'm too ADD. :-D

The man says, ooc:
     "OG did i jsut do that?"

I love the players of this game.
That's not a random thought either.

Zalanthas OST 2:


Elven Run





Now you're looking for the secret. But you won’t find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.

Depends on the character, though. I prefer Evanescence with this one. Some might go better with Godsmack, Rainbow, Dio, Metallica. Heh, Metallica suits the Byn.

The Conan soundtrack definitely suits Zalanthas, though.
Clans can give stat bonuses and penalties, too. The Byn drop in wisdom is particularly notorious.

Walking into the Gaj.

It matters not how strait the gate,

I usually just listen to metal, nothing in particular.

Though I've recently been playing without music on, because I really need to focus to get into and stay in character.

Lol. That's a dwarf focus theme song.

One thing I'd like to see in arm is more people focusing on how to make the game intriguing, by filling
it with murder, betrayal, and corruption, instead of arguing about how combat isn't powerful enough.

the perfect but so undiscovered album for Zalanthas would be Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Journeys. It starts off with traditional music from Mongolia, which reminds me of what Tuluki bards might sound like, and gets progressively and progressively more arabic in style, what I'd imagine Allanak would sound like. If there is anyway to find this online or preview it, give it a try!

And I love Amon Amarth for epic battles.

I really love this thread. Now I just need to get my PC hooked up to the internetz so I can start stealing these songs for my playlist.

That's interesting. I always though of Tuluk as being a Rome-like place. It might be the fact that they like red, white, the word Legion and marble though.
