"Druid Ceremony" (Mp3@320 Kbps) - from the RPG & TableTop Audio Experts

You come upon a group of druids in the middle of the forest surrounding a small glade where large stones have been placed in a particular, but unknown pattern. A young man and woman are in the middle. The forest here seems so much more peaceful than anywhere else. The bird chirps and forest chatter is calming. Several male druids chant in low drones while female singers laude praises melodically in Gaelic and Elvish. 

Content: This soundscape is perfect for that esoteric ceremony that otherwise might go without a background other than one that simply uses a forest setting or music. it's unique because it contains hard-to-find rare content. Mainly singing, chanting and melodic portions. it includes male chanting similar to the low hums in "The Dark Crystal", female chanting similar to the "Nordic" chants of the north, female soloists chanting old gaelic and elvish melodies accompanied by the critters in the surrounding forest. The wind picks up steadily and the ground vibrates (in the form of some subtle gritty rock sounds) to indicate nature's response. There's also a steady intermittent war drum thumping softly.

Uses: You'll find this track particularly calming and it'll add great depth to any campaign setting where a ceremony of this type takes place whether by druids or the elven of the forests. This is an event-driven "Encounter" soundscape as it features a specific kind of event. Yet, it's one of my favorites and really stirs the imagination. Grab it even if you need some insipiration for a ritual in your campaign or game or LARP.

Genre: Fantasy, Mood Music, Encounters

Time - 10:00 min

  • Sci-Fi: Soundscapes boldly dedicated to science fiction settings.
  • Horror: Soundscapes designed for frightening circumstances.

Listening to the soundscapes - for best results...

These soundscapes require nothing more than a decent listening apparatus that your players can hear and any software that can play MP3s (converted to CD/DVD will work too!). For best results, a system with a wide dynamic range will deliver the best quality whereas a laptop or bluetooth speaker, although portable and convenient, might not deliver the wide range of sound effects and may have the inablity to hear everything that's embedded in a particular soundscape. So keep this in mind when playing them. Of course, you'll be able to hear them just fine, but occasionally there are "sub" components that have been added to help round out the sound needed for a particular environment that may add some enhanced features on a larger system.

So, if you want to hear the soundscapes as intended and are particular and somewhat of a purist, like me, then a great sound system is advised--but not needed in order to have fun and enjoy the effects of any particular soundscape. I'm just picky and "picky" is not for everyone. Besides, the soundscapes will only enhanced a setting, but they can't run the fantastically awesome campaign that your players will enjoy and remember with upmost affection for years to come so much that in ten years they'll get together and reminisce about the "good 'ole times when your PC Troll, "Beorn the Vampire Killer" was beheaded by a fellow party member (ruining is nice armani suit) while under the influence of an NPC enemy vampire using Beorn as a puppet to infiltrate the party and the agency that hired them--not that that's ever happened to me or anything. That's where you come in.

Disclaimer

If you can't hear your soundscape very well, it may be the system and not the soundscape--sure, but that's not always the case. When each soundscape is launched, it's still considered in the "beta" stages and can be changed, tweaked and fine-tuned. So if you're experiencing problems with your soundscapes, please contact Ambient Environments, a.k.a. Gil Luna, or leave a review with the issue noted and I'll keep track and fix them as time allows. You'll be contacted, if you purchased the soundscape, when it's updated and will be able to download the new version for free. Happy listening!

Very nice. A bit darker than Cathedral at Dawn in my opinion. Very much a forest or outdoor setting. I really like all of Gil Luna's work, it's all great. I really appreciate how he specifically describes each piece, rather than just offering the title [...]

This may be one my favorite tracks from Gil Luna yet. The pulse of drums, twittering of birds, ambient vocals, and other audible elements of this track deliver a feeling of awe, sacredness, and nature. Admitting the influence of the track's name, I can [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
