Athasian Mood music

Hello Friends. I’m going to be running a continuing campaign set in our favourite wasteland and I’d like some suggestions for background music I could play for my game. I’ve already used Karl Sanders saurian meditations and the Blackhawk down soundtrack. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

One of my players had a half giant named Crom and he does an Arnold impression the whole game.

My favourites to use:

“Last Temptation of Christ Soundtrack” by Peter Gabriel. Intense middle east-inspired instrumentals both fast and slow.


“The Odd Get Even” by Shadowfax (The “Folksongs of a Nuclear Village” album is also good). Basically how video game fantasy soundtracks wish they sounded:


Speaking of Conan, the soundtrack for the Age of Conan game would work well.

I’m partial to game soundtracks. Emperor of the Fading Suns is another good one, if a bit on the gothic side. And I do like the Morrowind soundtrack, but it might be too peaceful and relaxing for a Dark Sun game.
