Your character's Theme music!

Post by Ezrynon » Mon Dec 06, 2021 10:41 pm

So I've been playing my new favorite mud for a while now, and have wondered what theme music people think captures their character's personality and outlook. I'm a musician myself so I'm always so curious what people come up with. So, lay it on me. I'll go first. This is for my character Chicahua the Huecatn. This is from a chikasaw composer!

That's a great track, Ezrynon.

I can't find the old one I used to use for Bryce, so for now this one'll work nicely: https://youtu.be/_G_vo6w6Tvw?list=OLAK5 ... S2EDTVVFIA

This might just be my recent obsession with guilty gear, but this one always makes me think of Crispus. Partly because it’s heavy in the best way. Partly because the lyrics are just a perfect personification of his struggle.
"The sky, above the clouds; A rainbow that fate has devoured
I gave up Hope
But I'm not going to be lost tomorrow; Even if it is hell
I'm gonna' crawl. "

This one makes me think of Indigo.
I have two forces by my side,
One's the truth and one's a lie,
Which one's which I cannot tell,
This enigma is my hell.

I don't necessarily have "Theme Songs" so much as songs that I listen to while trying to get into the mindset of characters I play, so I'll just include some of those, maybe...

Zahra (Nuumic Bard) -- Isra al-Rhunskar (Rhuidim Arcanist?) -- Skjalfridr of Clan Rullendbolg (Giganti Marauder) -- A Physicker --

Savlonic - Epoch (The Living Tombstone's Remix)

A song shared with me some time ago. I find the following lyrics particularly insightful:
Can't you see?
We are free
To choose our destiny
And be the way we want to be
This expresses a hope and idea that is meaningful to both myself and my character: That upon introspection we might realize we are not the person we want to be, but that want itself is an opening for us to make changes and to better ourselves. To be the way or the person we want to be, rather than the person we are now. That we have made mistakes, suffered failures, and are not there yet should not deter us.
You think to yourself, "I am tempted to henceforth refer to this as the Bicker Board."
You experience a sudden flash of insight, as though you have an increased understanding of who you are.

When I first started playing I was listening to a lot of Lee Scratch Perry. Soul Fire is Tulpa walking around Shadgard unselfconsciously.

Farm and day-to-day life: Kali Uchis - After the Storm

Encountering a mountain summit: Caterina Barbieri - Fantas

Sometimes Tulpa is running around with Vitality and another energy-related druidic ability up. Again channeling the unselfconscious stuff, slightly cheesy but I think perhaps it sounds like this: Cajmere - Brighter Days. It helps when I'm lacking energy myself!

I waited a long, long time to do this, mostly because I wanted a song that seemed to fit Maya really well. I think she's fleshed out enough now that I'm willing to give this out.

Avenged sevenfold - Almost Easy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fi_GN1pHCVc

I don't know if I'd necessarily call this 'Theme music,' but it certainly struck a cord in me today and I was just like...this kind of fits Maya's unpredictable, sort of repetitious insanity where she makes the same mistakes and then feels bad about it and mopes. By the way...I don't intend to make her insanity anoying, I'm sure it is to some of her close friends that she dumps her issues onto, and for that I'm sorry.

She has been starting to cool down from her bouts of craziness lately, and to a few close friends of hers I am eternally grateful. Keep on playing your wonderful characters and making my bundle of cliches look prettier than it is for it!

P.S. There is, of course, the obligatory:

Avenged Sevenfold - Girl I know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7mZRhIkpV4, but like I said, cooling down, and all that.

We've all made selfish bad decisions
We've all tried dishing out the blame
Convinced ourselves of our own actions
My problem is I'll never change.
