It’s one of those things that tends to be intensely personal, but I always wonder about.
What music do you listen to when you write or play roleplaying games?
For example, when writing the story I handed in today (fingers crossed), it’s theme song would be Silent Descent’s “In The Skies”. Daft Punk’s soundtrack for Tron:Legacy works very well for cyberpunky kinds of music. Let’s not forget game soundtracks – Planescape:Torment, Diablo (and Diablo II) are great. When writing a space combat story, the Halo Theme (Mjolnir Mix) got played a lot.
But to mess with your head and illustrate my point, a lot of the same video got used with this for Metallica’s Fade to Black and gives it a different feel.
So when you’re writing a story (or running a roleplaying game) what do you listen to?
