View Full Version : Background Music help

2010-02-08, 10:29 PM
I am DMing a Eberron Campaign, with most of it based in Sharn for the time being. I am looking for some music with a Dark, SiFy, and or City based feel to go with the setting. Any ideas?

Castlevania (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMcyE5oipUU) immediately jumped to my mind.

Hmm... i can't seem to find something not too SF, to fit Eberron. Still if SF part is not a must, then i would recommend Planscape (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8usOiu8StWQ) Torment (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzJmW94Z-9I&feature=related).

Maybe Fallout (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PEcfuKOJ-A&feature=related)?

For dark, try Sephiroth. The band, not the FF7 villain.

The Deus Ex soundtrack should satisfy your sci-fi and city needs. IIRC the Blade Runner soundtrack would work wel too.

Half-Life 2 soundtrack? It's full of sci-fi atmospheric music.

You could go jazz over some of that recorded rain.

Jazz you say? :smallsmile:
Ehh... see (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4lNGz-2TaQ&feature=related) you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RacpuLFP-E&feature=related) space (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73PUTHiqHVU) cowboy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdE1JCEKtg4)...
I actually didn't think about some jazz background music. On the other hand does noir equal dark?

Try Things Buried by Richard Barbieri. It's instrumental and kind of low key, but it definitely has the dark sci-fi feel to it.

Alien and Aliens soundtracks by James Horner are just awesome...I've used both at my games.
