Music for Roleplaying: Epic

The Kraken Spite by caiomm

I’ve already looked at great movie and video game soundtracks that can be used for roleplaying sessions. While I was looking for that music, I also came across a whole lot of music that I can only call, well, epic. It’s the kind of music you hear in movie trailers: awesome and epic music that tends to sound vaguely familiar but that your players probably won’t associate with a specific film or game or whatever.

I’ve listed the artist/company names below, with links to their YouTube channel or iTunes listing so you can take a listen for yourself. Most of them have numerous albums available on iTunes and such, though you may find yourself picking and choosing individual songs depending on your needs.

I also came across This Is Epic Music, Vol. 1, which has a nice selection of tracks from several of the artists I mentioned above, and is a great starting point if you’re not sure what to choose.
