What do you guys listen while playing adventure mode?
« on: July 06, 2019, 06:30:55 pm »

I enjoy playing Ghibli 8 bit songs. They give the world of dwarf fortress some kind of mysticm and  adventure and the 8 bit just fits the graphics.

Clamavi de Profundis is wonderful for this sort of thing.

OMG yes, same!

Aside from that, usually just such mainstream stuff as the LOTR soundtrack ("Concerning Hobbits" lends itself well to exploration of towns and hamlets) and certain tracks from other fantasy games like Dragon Age and Elder Scrolls.

It's actually pretty terrifying to think about having all of your fat melt off into grease because you started sweating too much.

I listen to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNwv4cH-i5k&t=16s

It's a collection of a bunch of different dwarfy-sounding songs. There is a lot of variety and it is very interesting.

Edit: I'd also like to second Clamavi de Profundis

When travelling aboveground, I find myself listening to the overworld theme from Equinox a lot.
It lasts about as long as it takes me to get anywhere in most worlds, and Tim Follin is a musical genius, so it works for me.

And while it may not be music, any time I enter a dark fortress, I feel obligated to state my intentions.

I don't know how it all works, I just throw molten science at the wall and see what ignites.

Speaking of dark fortresses, I often find myself chanting the lyrics of "Goblin Town" when I enter them. Not sure if that counts. :P

Huh, now that I think of it, it hasn't really occured to me to play DF with music in the background. Weird. Maybe it's just because the old ASCII games I used to play didn't have any sound/music? Dunno.

I'm not the only one!

Their music is incredible, and a good deal of it involves Tolkien, which I like. How popular are they?

I'd recommend the following OSTs, I find old RPG games in particular have soundtracks that fit DF:
Lufia 2
Terranigma
Secret of Mana
Secret of Evermore
Seiken Densetsu 3
Illusion of Gaia
Live-A-Live

Of course, if you're going for a darker atmosphere I'd also recommend tracks from Darkest Dungeon or Diablo 2.

This basically. Hero's theme from Dragon Quest 4 is my defacto quick travel theme. Mostly because it just starts playing in my head when I press 'T'.
