View Full Version : Music Inspires Me...

Music inspires me in pretty much anything I do, including RPGs. So, I decided to create a thread where like minded people could post their creations and the seed that germinated the idea.

(P.S. no hard crunch really necessary, just a bit of fluff to explain the connection)

I'll start:

Caesar Pontius- With You, Linkin Park (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hClNxEjukLE)

Caesar started his grief-stricken career mopping floors in the local church, but after several scandals among the various faithful, he managed to climb into the seat of a disgraced knight. His noble cause? To wipe out the rest of the corruption in his clergy.

All was well until he pushed too hard and the resultant backlash targeted his family. His wife was killed and his daughter taken, and even after a decade without word he still searched. Finally he reached a breakthrough in the form of a dagger embedded in his ribcage, one that flew from the palm of his dear daughter. Those he had hunted for corrupting the golden vision of his god had turned their wiles to his child and turned her into a monster who had hunted him as he searched for her.

The near lethal battle ended when the other guardsmen arrived to aid their comrade. This grim discovery did nothing to deter the heartbroken knight, in fact it only further deepened his resolve to reclaim his family. Since that day, he has taken the role of freelance church inquisitor, hoping to bulwark himself from the dark forces controlling his daughter.

Father of Death, the Protomen (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7T7wsX5BH0) fairly well described Ronald Redford's worst fear of becoming yet another mad man making machines of great destruction like Dr. James Gatling.

Pet Shop Boys - My October Symphony (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-c7A500Po0). A hero recognizes the heaven he'd created had become a hell. Rather than continue fighting he sinks into the crowd, too dishearted to fight again.
