I’m glad ours isn’t the only group that listens to music during the game. As a whole we find it very important to have fitting music.
Since we started the world’s largest dungeon I’ve labored making a “Perfect” playlist for each region. Mostly power metal xp
I hate picking out music for the game. When it’s good, it’s fantastic. But damn if I want to sit through 20 hours of playlist for a single great playlist. Even if it makes my GM skills sound amazing when I run the airship battles. Because it seems just as bad when I don’t have anything for the courtly intrigue. I’ve always wondered if I’m the only GM with no music in my blood or if I do it wrong.
Battlecat made my day:) Well done O.
Damn. Ninja’d by Zimmy. But the Battlecat reference is epic, O.
I have a large music library compiled from video game soundtracks just for this purpose.
Let’s see. When I’m running something fantasy-themed — D&D, Pathfinder, Rolemaster, etc. — I use these:
1. The D&D album made by Midnight Syndicate. Well worth the money.
2. The soundtrack for the game Sacred.
3. The add-on disc that came with the Eberron sourcebook “Sharn, City of Towers”.
4. The disc that came with the collector’s edition of LotRO’s “Mines of Moria” expansion.
I don’t want for fantasy music.
Don’t use complex music for everything Slovorg. For court intrigues and the like find a soft harp soloist or something like that. And for out in the woods type stuff I just run a recording of birds noises. Can be very effective if you time it right and it gets all quiet just before the action starts
I’m betting the music in 3rd panel was Kickstart my heart by Motley Crue :p
I run a Sci-Fi game and every time my players go to a new location I usually play some fitting music for the location. Blues for industrial mining planet; eerie new age for Exploring Alien ruins; and Steel drums for that beach planet.
Although I usually only play a track or two to set the mood as the music can get distracting, repetitive or annoying.
Tiny ninja is tiny!
HE-MAN! TANA TANANA NANA NA TANANA NA NANA NA NAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!
hahahaha good one O
I feel you O, I got about 100 hours of soundtracks just for gaming and lotsa game soundtracks that are basically just there to run in the background and barely be noticed
The Deadlands: Noir Game i will run soon is much easyer got a playlist of about 10 hours already
Nice reference to THACO there.
“plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose” or also know as “The more things change the more they stay the same”
Like the alternatives, you should do more of that
The cat is the best thing in the comic, do more
Am I mistaken or is that a ninja in the last panel? a tiny one?
Geek 4 life is so gangsta.
Hahaha, excellent strip!
I love the cat!
Battle cat! This is epic!
jaja que excelente battle cat!
I have four different music playlists for my games, entitled “City”, “Travel”, “Dungeon” and “Combat”.
I have to agree the battle cat made my day
Love the Thac0 on your hand.
hahha LOVE IT, and the kitty too!
Want a THAC0 ring
Our old RPG group used to alternate between some Ozric Tentacles or the soundtracks to Mechwarrior 2 and Ghost Bear Legacy. Even if you aren’t in a high tech setting, there’s something about both those soundtracks that makes you itch between your shoulder blades and keen for battle.
I needs me a THACO brass knuckle for my job Ossom!
As someone who’s seen you on video plenty…you would make an ugly woman. But then, I would make an ugly man, so that’s only fair.
LOVE THE KITTY!
I can recommend the Nox Arcana albums if you’re in need for some backgroundmusic
This strip felt goood.
Man, i love how you visualized the search for the right music there!
Our Star Wars RPG sessions wouldn’t been such success without fitting music. Not neccessarily John Williams but other pieces that would perfectly fit the scenario (Perry Rhodan and The Name of the Rose). There were even some metal tracks in there in frantic battles.
Second panel looks like Nerdcore. You can be the next Whitey Cracker!
Go for the eyes Boo, GO FOR THE EYES!
