Music for Talisman

53 posts in this topic

I thinh that music is an important part of every game. It makes Talisman world complete :).
Personally I prefer progersive rock band - Jethro Tull which plays lots of folk music. Whole discography (with "Aqualung" and "Thick as a Brick" on top) is perfect but to the game I can recomend such albums like: "Minstrel In The Galery", " Songs From The Wood" and "Broadsword And The Beast". Also "Tarkus" from Emerson, Lake and Palmer is climatic.
What kind of music do you like to listen in the background?

Wow, what a neat new topic.

 

I had not considered progressive rock (and I'm a prog rock fan since the early '70s; YES, ELP, Tull, Genesis, etc.)

 

we mostly use one of the music channels on our cable, 'Soundscapes' which is more or less New AGE.  Calming...(still kick ass in the game though)

A friend of mine wanted to do music, I find it distracting/irritating, but if low its ok. We played the Lord of the Rings soundtracks.

 

If we are gonna listen to music for Talisman its gonna be fantasy based.

When you look at Tull's "Broadsword and the Beast" cover (I think LP was released almost in the same year as 1st ed of Talisman) seems to me very fit to Enemy cards. Without a doubt strengt/craft at least 10  :lol:

You guys are all crazy....I dont know how you can listen to music! We usually have a lot of raucous noise amongst ourselves, a lot of cussing, a lot of belligerence and a shitload of gloating, nagging, complaining and ridiculing.

We listen to Skinny Puppy, NIN, stuff like that at a reasonable level, the aggressive nature of the music makes for a more battle fueld and blood sooked affair....

As some have mentioned, not too loud since the "discussion" should not be disturbed too much. However, LOTR is a must and we also listen to Pink Floyd a lot.

adjogi how can I agree more! quietly & LoR is best. And I used to be a huge fan of Pink Floyd and one of my friends who plays was also a fan.

Tubular Bells has always been a Talisman game fave of mine, as has plenty of Yes albums, Brian Eno, King Crimson, Tea Party, Hunters & Collectors, The Eternal, Led Zepplin's Physical Graffiti, Type O Negative & the Cure's Disintegration.
