Oh that's awesome Madness! I figured he was I wanted to ask on the AMA, but missed the chance.

Everyone gets caught up in the world questions/answers that he's always been so hesitant to yield ;).

I listened to this during the battle around Golgotterath. It seemed fitting

Great track!

Can I be an enormous philistine and recommend music from a videogame?

I dunno, this whole thing got stuck in my head during the Golgotterath segments.

Seems to me like all the good stuff video game music-wise is East of the Atlantic though. Almost all the ones with tracks I liked were either from Japan or central or eastern Europe.

You may, good sir, you may indeed!  Thinking about it, the Dark Souls/Demon Souls/Bloodborne atmospheres lend themselves quite well to this series in general...slogging through the abandoned Nonman Mansion?  yup, that checks.

And speaking of Bloodborne, I think I have Cnaiur's theme...I humbly submit 'Hunt You Down'

Well, he no talkie good like me and you, so his vocabulistics is limited to 'TELL ME...' and 'WHAT DO YOU SEE?' and, 'WHAT AM I?' Exclusively in that order.

The Dreg Heap, where the concept of "city" collapses on itself as reality falls apart, forming a tangled mass of the ruins of every city that ever existed piled on top of itself, kinda feels Bakker to me, for that matter.

And now the more I think about it, all the Souls games are like Serwa or Achamian walking through the ruins of the Ancient North.

And that gives us the next game in the Souls Series:  Scholar of the First Sin:  The Kuniuric Defilement

Opening Line: 'War, as a rule, falls within the compass of history.'

Part one:  The Slog of Slogs, on the road to ruin.

Time to drink some beer and make a video game, ladies.

You'd have to fade to black before every death instead of right after, given what's likely killing your character.

And the screen "Death comes swirling down.'

I'm thinking vast, open-world, ancient Kunuric North, heading out with some scalpoli(misspelled?).  Possibly perma-death, and you take over another of the scalpoli?  Get too low on dudes, and you have to abandon the Slog, taking you back to a "safe" town, to recuit new dudes and start over(with what you brought back intact, of course)?  Some will be traitors, or skin-spies, etc, etc.

I still think John Debney's soundtrack for The Passion of the Christ is a perfect fit for this series as a whole. I mean, I am emphatically not a Christian and I've never seen the movie, but that music... just damn.

Or if you prefer something with lyrics: Nightmare Heaven by Arcturus and Rise of Sodom and Gomorrah and Black Sun by Therion feel appropriate.
"Then I looked, and behold, a Whirlwind came out of the North..." - Ezekiel 1:4

"Two things that brand one a coward: using violence when it is not necessary; and shrinking from it when it is."

I think it would be more unique to be a Nonman hunting for memories of tragedy.

I read the Golgotterath battle while listening to this:

Palästinalied from Walther von der Vogelweide (In Extremo version).

So like The Oregon Trail but instead the more common end is raped to death by Sranc instead of plain old dysentery ;).
