TFTGGW Soundtrack: Bizzim the Blazing

We're in an off week, which means we're releasing music! Episode 93 comes out next week. This week's music is from the combat with Bizzim the Blazing. It's not one of my (Mike, the DM/editor/composer) favorite songs. It's very simple and repetitive, but it works. I had to release something from the Jeb episodes, and the "Hall of Elemental Conflict" is pretty awful, so this will have to do.Be sure to check us out on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter!

Episode 92 - The Archrival in Arrival

TFTGGW Soundtrack: The Water Weird

This is the last music release of our between-season break! This week's release is the music from the encounter with a water weird in the Department of Evocation.

We're going to an every-other-week format, with music releases on the off weeks. There will be tons of new art and a big surprise for everyone!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: The Mind Flayer

We're on our between-season break, with Season 3 starting in September. This week's release is the music from brief but dramatic fight with a mind flayer the party inadvertently released from stasis. Next week we have more music, and the week after that is the start of Season 3! Get ready!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: The Neothelid

We're on our between-season break, with Season 3 starting in September. This week's release is the music from the Neothelid combat. This was written before the fight, and that's not normally how we do things. It's a good thing they decided to go through with it, or that effort would have gone to waste!

World 89, The Quest for the Source, Part 2 (Pathfinder 2E)

TFTGGW Soundtrack: The Illusionary Otyugh

This is one of my favorite pieces of music from Season 2. I originally wrote it with two ideas in mind: 
1) It would sound like a so-so high school marching band.
2) It would be goofy and elephantine to fit the monster.

I think I succeeded on 2), but it ended up sounding like a competent high school marching band. 

Next week is part 2 of our Pathfinder 2E adventure!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Escape from Laravella

This is most of the music from the flashback one-shot that gave us Zartok's background. Two things are worth noting: First, you get an orchestral version of Zartok's theme. Second, the "hero ship" theme for the spelljammer ship known as Corellon's Needle makes an appearance. You're going to hear that theme often in Season 3!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Zartok's Theme

We're on our between-season break, so this week's release is Zartok's theme. I wish it had occurred to me to give each character a theme at the very beginning of the podcast. I only started doing it with Aethelflaed.

Brace yourself, as this is probably the most ridiculous one-shot we will ever play. Special thanks to Jessica for daring to be the GM. 

We're still on our between-season break. After this we'll be releasing  music for a few weeks, and then we'll have a multi-part Pathfinder 2E one-shot!  Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter! Check out our website at tftggw.com or send us an email!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Puttin' Berks in the Deadbook

We're on our between-season break, so this week's release is some music from Episode 62, inspired by the classic CRPG Planescape: Torment.

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Demonic Combat

We're on our between-season break, so this week's release is some music from Episodes 59 and 60. This is a mix of the various themes used during combat with the Tanar'ri (a.k.a. demons). Mike doesn't actually play guitar, so don't be too harsh.

TFTGGW Soundtrack: The Glass-Guarded World Theme - Metal Version

As a bonus release this week, we have the metal version of the theme song that released with Episode 59. We think it's pretty cool, but it would have been cooler if one of us had been able to play guitar well enough to have a killer solo, instead of resorting to a synth solo.

A new page: All the sounds we've used!

I've created a new page listing all the sound effects we've used and linking to the original sources. I didn't realize we had used so many until I organized them! 
Sites like Freesound.org are a great resource for finding all sorts of useful noises.

Lasers and Feelings - Part 1?

This is the first of several one-shots we're releasing during our inter-season break. It's Lasers and Feelings, the well-known one-page RPG! This is probably the funniest thing we've done, and definitely the stupidest. We've been sitting on this for a long time, and we're excited that you finally get to hear it!Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: The Intellect Devourer (Music from Episode 54)

We're on our between-season break, so this week's release is some music from Episode 54. It's the very weird music from Tara's encounter with the Intellect Devourer that very nearly ate her brain.

We were going to release a one-shot this week, but in light of current events, we decided to postpone it. We don't want it to get lost in the quickly-developing news, and we don't feel comfortable trying to promote it heavily. This is not the time to take attention from important events. Maybe next week? Maybe not. We'll see.

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Blob Mob in the Loo (Music from Episode 52)

We're on our between-season break, so this week's release is some music from Episode 52. This is the combat music for the fight in the bathroom with the black pudding. Poor Aster got clobbered!

I like this song because it only took 6 instruments. That's what's nice about synthesizers (as opposed to orchestral instruments): they fill a lot of space with very little work. The orchestral songs can easily take 20 to 30 instrument tracks. 

We should have a one-shot coming out next week, so keep updating the podcast feed!Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter! Check out our website at tftggw.com or send us an email!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Administrative Hell Hounds (Music from Episode 49)

We're on our between-season break, so this week's release is some music from Episode 49. Note that around 1:35 the music that would become Tara's theme appears for the first time. You'll find it repeated in a lot of subsequent combat music.

Season 2 Question and Answer

This will be the last new episode for a while, as we take a break between seasons. We'll be releasing music, and occasionally you might get a surprise one-shot session. You can still let us know if you have questions, or contact us on Twitter or Facebook, or via email. Thanks for listening, and we'll be back as soon as we can--but that might be a few months!

Arriving in Integration/Strethok's Introduction

When the party descended the stairs to Integration a new piece of art by Shaunmakes was shown to them. This is pretty much how they experienced it (minus the music): First they saw only the top, then they panned down, saw the shocking image, and zoomed out. Pretty neat, eh? Special thanks to Ben Carter for creating the video out of our music and Shaun's art.

Episode 90 - Strethok the Necromancer

The party has finally reached the bottom of the ruined wizard research complex. The Department of Integration is run by Strethok the Necromancer, who is presumably the villain behind the heroes' troubles, right?
