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.

Feel: Action, Driving, Mystical

So many big drums! All the big drums in all one place! Bonus; Extra people banging on gamelan metals! Uncompressed download comes with a version with just the drums... I'm not sure if this of for non-musicologists who may not like the gamelan - or specifically for musicologists who think I've used the gamelan improperly.

Player One Up! Ready! Go! Health 100%. Weasel Gun Equipped. This is sort of how I imagined 80s electronic music people tried to copy the distorted guitars of the day, but with 8bit sound sources. It doesn't sound like guitars at all, but it does sound like people trying to sound like guitars... and that's a thing now.

You know that sound that was big in 80s dance music with that sort of galloping doo-do-do-DAH-do-do-doo-do-do-DAH thing? This has a thing like that, but in really, really complex drum sound. You need to wait until 16 seconds in to hear what the doo-do-do-DAH-do-do-doo-do-do-DAH sounds like. I know it can be difficult reading KRN (Kevin's Rhythmic Notation). A-do-do-dooo-a-da-da-daaah is all I want to say to you.

Instruments: Synths, Drums

Feel: Action, Driving, Uplifting

This piece was built almost entirely with arpeggiators. What does that mean for you? Probably nothing. But holy man! Does this sound like it is from 1983! So, pop a tape of "Flashdance" in your VCR... and then spend like 8 minutes rewinding it... because, apparently your cousin couldn't be bothered to do that. Seriously, Sally! You did the same thing when I lent you "Smokey and the Bandit II", and I didn't say anything because you had a hard week, but still managed to make the Jell-o Salad with the grapes for the family reunion... which was nice. Anyway, I'll probably just get you one of those $20 tape rewinders they have at Radio Shack for your birthday. I also enrolled you in the Battery of the Month Club. You're welcome.

Feel: Action, Epic, Intense

This piece starts BIG. Originally, this piece started slowly and built... and then I got bored and chopped out all the slowness. There are still dynamics, but if you need bigness from the get-go - here's what you get! Vroom! BIG BIG BIG! Could be too big. Could be. Probably isn't.

Feel: Action, Epic, Intense, Suspenseful

Starts small, gets big... then smaller, then REALLY big... then small again. Kind of like a turtle. Actually, it is entirely possible that I just kept seeing different turtles. I mean, they all sort of look like turtles; I wasn't tagging them or marking them with chalk or anything. Chalk will probably just wash off in the pond anyway. Oh! Kind of like a puffer fish! Like a musical puffer fish! Perfect. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Feel: Dark, Epic, Action, Driving

Five! Five full minutes of battle fighting action bits with a bit of an Egyptian flair! For some reason I associate English horn with desert nomads. There must have been some cultural reference in my youth to that effect. Super crazy awesome brass is super crazy awesome... wait for it... you'll be glad you did!

Your girlfriend has be kidnapped by ninja! Stage 1: Desert. Avoid the flaming balls and shoot cyborg ninja in the eye to win round. Retro-gaming circa 1988. I was seriously considering naming this piece "Flaming Balls" as that would also have been appropriate. Cyborg ninjas are just a little more '1988' to me. Need 10 hours of this? Loop it!
