Victory

This one is pompous, a cheerful fanfare for heroic achievements and endings.

Winter Plaza

All kinds of denizens lurk around, and Sandport folk will invite you in over a heated cup of mulled wine, pepper cookies, and a good portion of town news (or gossip, if you will!). You will see that Sandportians are warm people, even when their beloved town is under the soft white coat. To your […]

Cheerful Forest

This song is about a Cheerful Forest, and reminiscent of that old JRPG vibe. It was requested by one of my patrons who is about to update his video game and needed some music to go with it. You can check out the game at: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1451570/Cosmic_Magus/

Bolarius

This song was inspired and requested by Bogus Cheesecake who is creating a beautiful dnd 5e setting supplement called Bolarius. It’s about airships, skywhales and peace. Very reminiscent of Miyazaki’s movies. Learn more about it here: http://linktr.ee/boguscheesecake

Festival

A beautiful medieval town near the river, evergreen. And the folk gathered for a medieval festival. Enjoy!

Masquerade

For this song I imagined vampires hiding in plain sight, in a ballet of disguises, lies and shadows.

A Cozy Tavern

I wrote this song for a collab with Maptime With Dad. With whom I started collaborating this week. He went into a lot of detail, working on replicating the Prancing Pony from the Lord of the Rings movies, and ended up with an amazing tavern map I plan to be using on my own D&D […]

The Carnival

“It begins with a tingle of anticipation—a sense of dread or hope, but nothing more. Out of the blue, the residents of a village sense that someone or something will soon enter their lives. Then the handbills appear—eerie, teasing flyers, promising that the Carnival is near.” I wrote this song thinking of Ravenloft’s ever-moving Carnival.

Happy Times

This song was part of my collaboration with Cast Die Podcast and was one of the many ideas that were on the table during the production of their intro. This ended up being very different from the main intro I wrote so I thought I might as well publish it as exclusive content,

Roadtrip

I wrote this while hiking the mountains around my house on a sunny day. I think it’s ideal for hopeful/adventurous situations on the road.

A Lion’s Pride

For this song, I imagined a tribe singing in celebration after a young member of the tribe faces a lion to become an adult.

The Bazaar

This song is a product of a free request on my Discord server. It’s mostly background music for describing a fantasy middle east city named Samar.

Ægir

This Viking song is about the jötunn Ægir from Norse mythology and host of the Æsir. Will writing it I imagined the gods having a feast, gathered at Ægir’s court.

Tavern Ambience

This song is part of my Atmospheres album, covering an array of fantasy ambiences. I’d call it fantasy elevator music, meant to suggest a place and mood. Ideal for writers, D&D players or anyone wanting to be transported somewhere far away. IMPORTANT: this ambience includes royaly free SFXs that were licensed to me, I wouldn’t […]

Red Fox Tavern
