    Default [3.5] Campaign Soundtrack Help

    So I'm running an Eberron campaign that's starting in Sharn and heading off to Xen'drik. Any suggestions for background music for 1) a large metropolitan city filled with all manner of fantastic races 2) a high-seas voyage and 3) a hive of scum and villiany, dark jungles, and ancient temples?

    Thanks!

    *Rolls up sleeves*
    Like most soundtracks these days, there are some good and some bad songs on the ones I'm about to list. I don't think I have much for a city feel; but I have plenty for stuff that sounds just plain epic.
    Also, I'll be straying away from old standbys like LOTR. The music is fantastic, but wanders a bit too much in my opinion for mood setting music.

    I'm not really sure about flavor-centric soundtracks, but I have a list of soundtracks I'd like to use. I haven't put together a playlist, but I listen to this to get in the right mindset for campaign building. I'll even split them up in terms of what they can offer.

    Ambience:
    Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto
    New Batman Soundtracks
    Diablo I and II
    Blood +
    Ecco the Dolphin (Dreamcast)
    Fable II
    Halo Soundtracks
    Mushishi
    Noein
    Piriates of the Caribbean (All of them)
    Prince of Persia games
    Shadow of the Colossus (Would probably be great for Dark Temples)

    Fight:
    New Batman Soundtracks
    Blood+
    Ecco the Dolphin (Choice tracks)
    Halo Soundtracks
    Ninja Gaiden I and II
    Noein
    Prince of Persia Games
    Project Chaos (Its the Sonic 3 and Knuckles remade stuff. Its awesome.)

    City Events:
    Blood+
    Diablo I and II (Prepare for lots of D2 quotes at the table if you use "Tristram" for city music)
    Ninja Gaiden I and II
    Fable I and II

    Hope my list was at least a little helpful.

    Very helpful, actually. I hadn't thought of Prince of Persia or Shadow of the Colossus soundtracks, but those would definitely fit what I'm looking for.
