Feel: Action, Dark, Driving

Adventure, Ho! Last time on "Adventure, Ho!", the mage-orc Gnarlnosh was granted 1d4 wishes from a Deck of Many Things and it totally screwed up the game balance. Why? Because the DM sort of sucks, but he thought "Oh, sure - this could be fun... how could giving a mage-orc a fully provisioned army in the middle of a desert possibly sidetrack the quest for finding a cure for a magical disease that is ruining the kingdom AND the healer elf." Deck of Many Things; BAH! More like Deck of This-Campaign-Jumped-the-Shark.

"Nonstop"

Instruments: Guitar, Percussion, Synths

Feel: Driving, Grooving, Uplifting

From what I can tell, this piece has no genre... it is an odd mix of a few things, but not enough of any one of them to be considered a member of that group. So, when you find a new critter which is certainly a new species... likely a new genus... probably a new family... and seriously might be a order. It has an exoskeleton, gives birth to live young (asexually somehow?), has a beak... We recognize all those parts, but it doesn't fit anything. Might be a new phylum.

"Floating Cities"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion

Feel: Somber, Relaxed, Mystical, Calming

It is the future? It certainly sounds like it... What would I use this for? Probably a video game with non-action gameplay. Certainly a montage of some futuristic film... or maybe one of those sandwiched scenes where a person is walking in the rain, but you don't get any of the sounds of the actual rain... just this piece. No dialog, no voiceover, just walking. Do they have a name for those scenes? They must. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

"Thunderbird"

Instruments: Bass Flute, Synths, Percussion

Feel: Somber, Relaxed, Mystical, Calming

Wikipedia describes the Thunderbird as "a supernatural bird of power and strength". It will also ask you to disambiguate it from the automobile made by Ford from 1955 to 2005. I'm sure it was a nice car. I've never owned one. But there were a lot of them! The late 70's Thunderbirds are particularly horrifying... They had those headlight covers that flipped up... because that was a good idea at some point. But this piece! Oh! This piece! Atmosphere like you wouldn't believe! The flute is just so earthy! The organic drones are also beautiful. The whole thing is beautiful. Kind of like you went to an alien day spa in another dimension where days last for years, but you still never get all wrinkly when you're in the bubbly warm waters. mmmm... bubbly warm waters... with the slight possibility of a serial killer.

"Dama-May"

Instruments: autoharp, percussion, basses

Feel: Mysterious, Mystical, Suspenseful, Unnerving

Simple oddly asynchronous piece where the percussion and melody get along, but in an aloof sort of way.

"Thunder Dreams"

Instruments: Synths

Feel: Dark, Mysterious, Suspenseful, Unnerving

This is more of a chordal soundscape than a drone. There is a little bit of hope here and there, but it is tempered with a deep sadness. Probably useful after a loss. Beautiful, horrible.

"Orion 300XB"

Instruments: Synths, Percussion, Voice

Feel: Calming, Eerie, Mysterious, Mystical

Unintelligible alien transmissions punctuate the entirety of this piece, while simple, distracted chords create an atmosphere of unease and wonder - beauty and discovery. The pace is quick, and the taiko drumming is foreboding and tribal, but the airy beauty of the chords is almost calming.
