Pandora for Background Music

The folks over at Gnome Stew have an article about using Pandora for background music in your games. Unfortunately, Pandora itself isn’t accessible from outside of the US, but the article still has a few solid music selections, to which I would add the following artists: Two Steps From Hell, Mogwai, Laura, Explosions in the Sky, and E.S. Posthumus. As you can see from the suggestions, post rock is a good genre for background music as it generally has no lyrics and can be effective for evoking particular emotions or feelings. I’d also suggest Grooveshark as an alternative to Pandora. If you register, you can have it build dynamic playlists from what you like.

Has been the Dungeon Master for the group since the early nineties. It all started when a school friend’s mother ran U1: The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh for him and some friends. Enthralled by this new thing he'd discovered, he quickly assembled a group of his own and began running games. From that point forward, he was hooked and hasn’t looked back since. He’s run games that run the gamut from old school to indie, and is always looking to try new systems or tinker with existing ones.
