This is the RP Enrichment Thread, as suggested by Ambad, where people can post all sorts of stuff: character themes, area themes, just general stuff they think fits the mood or theme of the RP or any characters in it, your own or anyone else's - music, art, whatever it might be. You can also post all sorts of other things, like potion ideas, ingredients, and... well, basically anything you want/can come up with that isn't major enough to belong in the Custom Content topic instead.

 

To kick things off, have a few tentative character themes from me. :P

 

Tom Drake

Caiden Voros

Spoiler

 

Kye Vakurseth

Spoiler

 

Drumbeat

Spoiler

 

 

I also have a few area themes...

 

Illikon

Spoiler

 

 

I'll almost certainly post more stuff in here later. I'm going to go ahead and post this topic before I utterly lose myself to trying to find every darn song I like for themes for one of my characters. :P So go wild, guys!

Also, Illikon is a lot like Rohan? I thought it was like Gondor or maybe Troy. :P

Illikon isn't really "like" anything - not even as much as many of the other Imperial cities, several of which are based on history. I just associate the Gondor music with it for other reasons, like Tom's patriotism and stuff, since it's a good patriotic-sounding theme. :P

 

I said Rohan because it's on the Plains and they're so cavalry-oriented as a civilization. Not the same kind of cavalry as Rohan, though, for sure. Illikon also has a slightly more Northern attitude than many of the other Imperial kingdoms. Plenty of them still have wild, untamed blood and a more independent attitude (again, like Tom).

Oooh, this looks fun!  I'll start with what I have already done some work on, and seems to be a popular trend at the moment: character themes!

I would post a few for my characters ((Peter, Ferris, Dustil etc,)) but I can't do the [media] thing correctly for some reason.

Here's some assorted werewolf songs and/or werewolf-related songs (that are actually good - many of them are not :P ) just to get people in the mood for the werewolf group.

We'll...those were ok. But I've got some awesome themes made by a guy who specializes in medieval/Celtic music. Sorry that I can't upload videos...

https://m.youtube.co...6&v=U62YkXZNs8M

Winterwolf, medieval ballad. Got me in the mood for a Werewolf RP, fast! Also.

https://m.youtube.co...-No&mode=NORMAL

This one is okay. Still. I like Winterwolf a bit more.

It's been a while since anyone posted in here, so I thought I'd liven things up a bit in honor of the new Veritshire Zone.

 

I had decided that Veritshire would be made of red bricks a while ago, given its southern setting.  However, it took a while for me to come up with some sort of symbol or rallying point that would define its appearance.  The Red Keep was already taken, after all.  Then, I remembered watching the culinary and cultural documentary "Two Greedy Italians," which mentioned the concept of campanilismo, where residents of a city would rally to the central belltower (campanile) when under attack.  It grew to mean a sense of pride in one's heritage, placing special emphasis on your birthplace rather than a nation, since Italy hasn't been a unified country for all that long.

 

"That's all well and good," I thought to myself, but how do I apply that to this city I have imagined?  Then Two Steps from Hell released this beautiful song, and I had my answer.  Steel thy ears, brave heroes, and behold my chosen theme for Veritshire, the haven of the crossroads!

 

Spoiler

 

 

If that wasn't epic enough for you, this next rendition has vaguely Arabian tones and a particularly exciting feel to it, making it perfect for the southern region of the Empire.  I just love these grand orchestral sounds, don't you?

Well while I'm here for the latest sign-up, two character themes comin' up!

 

Javed Shahzad, GENTLEMAN ADVENTURER!

 

Spoiler

 

I was sorely tempted to use at least part of Team FNKI's theme, but this fits both Javed's swashbuckling style and the fact that he was originally made for Over the Sea much better.

REMEMBER THIS THREAD, GUYS?

 

Because I was listening to this song again, and it always makes me think of Caiden's negative side and aspects with all he goes through, so I figured I'd go ahead and post it here. :P

None of those are "Never Surrender." Actually listen to them, and you'd find that out. :P

 

Same album (at least for two of them), different songs. All of them fit, though. The first ones I posted suit more his heroism, this one is the other side of that.

They're from the same album and artist, with the same image as the background of the video, so I can understand your confusion.  Still, remember what they say about assuming.

 

 

Indeed, I remember this thread, and with a new chapter of Errant upon us and my first new character since it's inception, I find it more than appropriate to start posting here again!

 

To keep with the heavier genre of music that seems to be our current theme, I'll start with this lovely tune for Sigmar, a dwarf lost in doubt and despair, bringing light to others while feeling trapped in his own darkness:

 

 

 

Of course, I can't ignore my beloved instrumentals, so here's another theme I quickly associated with the same character during a bout of nostalgia for one of my favorite RTS games of my teen years.

Dangit Cappy, you always rub something stupid I do in my face every time. Thanks for that. :P

 

Well, if we're talking about character themes, here are ones for Agethar and Bale, and also for Katrina.

 

Agethar Twin-axe:

 

 

Bale Spellwinde:
