    Approved by Tsukasa

    In some RPG posts, many people use music as inspiration. Either it being a character theme or possibly just appropriate background music that they feel fits the situation. As part of the new RPG Lounge forum, we bring you a topic in which you can post your ideas for music that fits the scene, character, or overall theme of the RPG. For the first time RPG creators have a place to put what they believe should be the theme song to their RPG.

    [color=#DDDDDD]Rules: No double posting, No disagreements if you feel like it doesn’t fit then post what you think should. You must follow the form below when posting to keep from spamish posts. You’re not restricted to things only of your own design; its okay to post music that you think fits another character/situation/RPG that you are not part of.

    Form:
    RPG Name: * Must provide a link to the RPG *
    Character Name/Specific Post: * If the song is for a certain character, give their name and a link to their sign-up; if it's a Specific Post, link to the topic or the particular post; if it’s for an RPG in general, leave this blank *
    Song or Poem: * If you want provide a link to lyrics, if not you can list the song or post the lyrics here to the poem or song that you feel goes along with it *
    Reason: * Do you have a specific reason in choosing this song? *
    Other: * Just incase I missed something *

    Example
    RPG Name: Chronicles of the Rift
    Character Name/Specific Post: Adalia
    Song or Poem: Catch You Catch Me
    Reason: It just seems to fit her, the giddy beat of the song, the whole free flowing and youthful flow of it, and the hints of a childish crush.
    Other: Nope

    Song or Poem: Beast of Blood, by Malice Mizer.
    Lyriciness

    The future dyed in fresh blood... my tortured senses

    Place of silence, moving shadows
    Crimson eyes are strangely gleaming in the darkness
    Madness starting to awake
    Playful desire starving of blood
    Get down limitless night

    Beast of Blood

    Along with the scream from the death throes
    Sharp claws are shining brighter
    Dually obscene breaths continues
    And rips apart the silence of the night
    Crossing the uplifty night
    Get down limitless night

    Beast of Blood

    The scent of blood intertwined around my breath,
    Floats about the air on this night of esctasy
    The future dyed in fresh blood... my tortured senses
    The scent of blood intertwined around my breath,
    floats about the air on this night of ecstasy

    Beast of Blood

    No fear, no sadness
    Lofty life is tasting loneliness and eternity
    And near by the target with no more life
    Red drops on my greedy lips
    Falls down on the freezing ground
    Get down limitless night


    Reason: Well, take a look at Mara's profle. Her magic's entirely blood-based...she's a beast of blood, as it were. I think that it describes her perfectly! ^^


    this is hell
    we have a little something called integrity

    RPG Name: Chronicles of the Rift
    Character Name: Tané Marré Ghéde
    Song or Poem: Not so much as a song as a jazz tune... Anything by the godly Django Reinhardt would do fine, but in particular "Nuages" (Clouds), performed with the quintette of the Hot Club du France. There are no lyrics, it's an instrumental ^^;;
    Reason: It's slow and quiet... A little fuzzy round the edges... Wishy-washy... just like Tané...

    RPG Name: The 8th Layer by B4
    Character Name/Specific Post: Theme for entire RPG
    Song or Poem: Fallen Angels by Ra (Click the "Fallen Angels" link in the songs box to make sure it's the one playing)
    Reason: Aside from the obvious title, I think this song represents the darker side and overtone of the RPG, and the plight of the fallen Angels.
    Other: This song is just plain cool!

    wow.. my first post in the rpg forum in like two years... RK, you're a very convincing person :-P

    RPG Name: Mewtations
    Character Name/Specific Post: SuperSonicMewtwo
    Song or Poem: One Winged Angel - Final Fantasy VII Reunion Tracks
    [CHORUS]
    Estuans interius, ira vehementi. Estuans interius, ira vehementi. Sephiroth! Sephiroth!
    [REPEAT CHORUS]
    Sors immanis, et inanis. Sors immanis, et inanis. [REPEAT CHORUS]
    Veni, veni, venias, Ne me mori facias. Veni, veni, venias, Ne me mori facias.
    Veni, veni, venias (Gloriosa), Ne me mori facias (Generosa). Veni, veni, venias (Gloriosa), Ne me mori facias (Generosa).
    Sephiroth! Sephiroth! Sephiroth! Translation here.
    Reason: I always wanted SSM to be sort of like, the evil bad*ss that had a just a tinge of good in him. Take that good out, or make him mad, and this is what you get. Pure evil, 'burning inside with violent anger.'
    The Almighty SuperSonicMewtwo

    People and Pokémon alike be very afraid. I am unstoppable & unbeatable. I laugh in the face of danger, eat when I'm hungry, and belch in your face. Bow before me or face my wrath, for I am SuperSonicMewtwo, Master of all Pokémon and those who are annoying!

    RPG Name: Ashford Asylum by Mystic Clown
    Character Name/Specific Post: John Cross/Torch
    Song or Poem: Slow Chemical by Finger Eleven (if you want to hear it, you could go on youtube or something and tyep it in)
    Reason: I think the song really describes how Torch is really tortured inside. If you read his first post, you'll discover how inside he really is insane.
    Other: The bits about fire don't hurt, seeing as that's his power.

    Oops, forgot the Lyrics. Though in order to feel the effect you need to hear the song


    The wonder of the world is gone I know for sure
    All the wonder that I want I found in her

    As the hole becomes apart I strike to burn
    And no flame returns

    Every intuition fails to find it's way
    One more table turned around I'm back again

    Finding I'm a lost and found when she's not around
    When she's not around I feel it coming down

    Give me what I could never ask for
    Connect me and you could be my chemical NOW

    Give me the drug you know I'm after
    Connect me and you could be my chemical

    When everybody wants you (the chemical your slow)

    When everybody wants you (the chemical your slow)

    Slow and
    Everybody wants you
    So
    Slow and
    Everybody wants your soul

    Give me what I could never ask for
    connect me and you could be my chemical NOW

    Give me the drug you know I'm after
    Connect me and you could be the chemical

    You could be the chemical
    You could be the chemical
    You could be the chemical
    You could be the chemical

    I'll post here. I like the idea of character themes.

    RPG Name: Ashford Asylum
    Character Name/Specific Post: Shan Shayna
    Song or Poem: "Helena" by My Chemical Romance
    Here be lyrics.
    Here be a music video, more so you can hear the song than for the video itself.
    Reason: With this song, it isn't necessarily the lyrics that made me choose it. The tone of the song, the feelings it represents of quiet contemplation and loss, they just seemed to fit the best. I also like the chorus, which sounds like this Shan.
    Other: Since this is a reoccuring character of mine (more in my own stories than in RPGs), there are other themes for Shan, the overall theme being "Moving Forward" by Hoobastank. Finding a theme for Ashford's Shan took a while. This one won.
    Other themes considered were:
    "Drown" by Limp Bizkit
    "Bottom of a Bottle" by Smile Empty Soul
    "The Jetset Life is Gonna Kill You" by My Chemical Romance
    "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" by My Chemical Romance
    "Who Am I? [Anamatrix Edit]" by Peace Orchestra
    "Life is Like a Boat" by Rei Fu
    "Wake Me Up When September Ends" by Green Day
    And some others that I won't bore you with.

    Song or Poem: Super Sonic ~ Everything from Sonic the Fighters
    Reason: It seemed fitting.
    Other:
    The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go.
    What was, what will be, and what is may yet fall under the Shadow
    Let the dragon once again ride on the winds of time.

    RPG Name: Chains of Dragons
    Main Theme:
    Song or Poem: It Doesn't Matter, from Sonic Adventure

    Well, I don't show off, don't criticize
    I'm just livin' by my own feelings
    And I won't give in, won't compromise
    I just only have a steadfast heart of gold

    I don't know why, I can't leave though it might be tough
    But I ain't out of control, just livin' by my word
    Don't ask me why, I don't need a reason
    I got my way, my own way

    * It doesn't matter now what happens I will never give up the fight
    There is no way I will run away from all of my frights
    Long as the voice inside me says go, I will always keep on running
    There is no way to stop me from going to the very top

    It doesn't matter who is wrong and who is right

    Well, I won't look back I don't need to
    Time won't wait and I got so much to do

    Where do I stop, it's all a blur and so unclear
    Well, I don't know but I can't be wrong

    This fight is not for anybody, this is purely for myself
    There is no way I'm gonna give up 'til the very end
    I can't tell what is wrong and what is right, I've got to find the answer
    But I do there's no way I will ever give up

    Place all your bets on the one you think is right

    (Guitar solo)

    * Repeat

    Reason: I really like the song and I think It'd make for a great opening/main theme. ^^U

    RPG Name: Chains of Dragons
    Character Name: Denisu "Saké" Wamiyazen
    Song or Poem: Heart of Sword from Rouroni Kenshin

    Hitori de wa, tooi ashita wo Yoake no mama de, koesou de

    Butsukatteikya kokeru omoi yo Konya mo mata, sure chigai

    Sanzan sugite doryoku no ato mo Naku naru kekka, only no tsuna watari

    Yaru dake son suru yona, mainichi wa Sha ni kamaeteta hou koso, raku ni naru

    Atsukute, tsurai jibun wo kakushite, mijikai toki wo ikiteru

    Hitori de wa, tooi ashita wo Yoake no mama de, koesou de

    Hottokeba, hashiru omoi yo Yume mo mata, sure chigai

    Kanpeki to chau, jinsei no shuushi Puramai zero da nanteba honto ka na?

    Shinu made ni tsukaikiru, un no kazu Semete, jibun de dashiire wo sasete

    Wakacchainai, kimi nara dou ni demo, rikutsu wo kaete ii noni

    Nando kimi ni, ketsu mazuitemo Modottekichau, aijou ni

    Shinjikaneru, utaretsuyosa yo Konya mo, soutou nemurenai

    Nando nankai, kurikaeshitemo Modottekichau, ai dakara

    Butsukatteiku, kesunu omoi wo Semeru hou ga, suji chigai

    Hitori de wa, tooi ashita wo Yoake no mama de koeteyuku

    Aishou yori mo, fukai futari wa Sure chigatte kamawanai

    English Lyrics:

    When I'm alone, tomorrow feels far away. And I must go over still into the darkness of dawn.

    If I try to play it straight, it will no doubt fail, And tonight it won't go well between us again.

    You can't see all of my hard efforts, because it's only result Is that it makes no sense. It really is a "tightrope".

    More effort, more damage--this is my daily life. Taking a cynical attitude may give me some comfort...

    Hiding myself, heated and irritated; living only a short time.

    When I'm alone, tomorrow feels far away. And I must go over still into the darkness of dawn.

    If I let my emotions free, My dreams will once again not go well.

    I think the balance sheet of my life is imperfect. If I add up the plusses and minuses, will it really equal zero?

    I want to control all my luck That may be used up before my life is ended.

    You don't know--you can change logic at your will.

    I hurt myself because of you, over and over; But my love didn't go away--it kept coming back.

    The toughness gained from my damage is unbelievable. I won't be able to sleep at all tonight either.

    However many times it's repeated,. It revives again and again--because it's love.

    You can't blame my emotion, Because you should know it will never fade away.

    When I'm alone, tomorrow feels far away. And even though I'm in the darkness of dawn, I have to go.

    I don't care about "bad affinity". Even if our love is not doing well, Nevertheless we have deep ties.

    Reason: Mainly it was because of the tone of the song and the idea I had of Saké preparing for his gradauation test after the Dragon Gods were released. It delt with a lot of cram session studying magic, ritual, and customs when he passes out from the stress and then faces his final test against his mentor using both the blade and magic.

    RPG Name: Chains of Dragons
    Specific Post: The Hydra Battle begining and The end
    Song or Poem: Open your Heart, Sonic Adventure

    Thunder, rain, and lightning
    Danger, water rising
    Clamour, sirens wailing
    It's such a bad sign

    Shadows of dark creatures
    Steel clouds floating in the air
    People run for shelter
    What's gonna happen to us!?

    All the steps we take, all the moves we make, all the pain at stake
    I see the chaos for everyone who are we what can we do
    You and I are same in the way that we have our own styles that we won't change
    Yours is filled with evil and mine's not there is no way I can lose

    * Can't hold on much longer - But I will never let go
    I know it's a one way track - Tell me now how long this'll last
    I'm not gonna think this way - Nor will I count on others
    Close my eyes and feel it burn - Now I see what I've gotta do

    OPEN YOUR HEART, IT'S GONNA BE ALLRIGHT

    Ancient city blazing
    Shadows keep attacking
    Little children crying
    Confusion, hopeless anger

    I don't know what it can be but you drive me crazy
    All your cunning tricks make me sick, you won't have it your own way

    * Repeat

    OPEN YOUR HEART...AND YOU'LL SEE...

    (Guitar Solo)

    If it won't stop, there will be no future for us
    Its heart is tied down by all the hate, gotta set him free

    I know it's a one way track - Tell me now how long this'll last
    Close my eyes and feel it burn - Now I see what I've gotta do

    GOTTA OPEN YOUR HEART, DUDE!

    * Repeat

    OPEN YOUR HEART, IT'S GONNA BE ALLRIGHT

    Reason: Mainly the theme is a hint to how the creature was destroyed. As one that controled Fire, Lighting, and Water, and was born of giant crystals, I think it would be fitting for "heart opening" to be its downfall. ^^

    RPG Name: The Scourge
    Character Name/Specific Post: Denny Roth
    Song: In his World, Sonic the Hedgehog (next Gen systems)

    Come on let the future's so rocking and he's ready to go...
    cause now the countdown is started and he's ready to blow
    He's got the tough sounds pumping and a stereo,
    hes fast and on the show.
    come on get yourself together, there's no time to rest
    so make it with the time and he'll put you to the test
    he's like the running man, in his world more is less
    and if you wanna test him best bring the best,
    to make it spell it out, bring your best.
    In this world, HIS world, where life is strong
    In this world, HIS World, life's an open book
    In this world, HIS World, where compromise does not exist
    In this world, the rules every step meets the rest
    In this world, HIS World, one is all
    In this world, HIS World, never fear the fall
    In this world, HIS World, where compromise does not exist
    In this world, the rules every step meets the rest
    Come on you wanna break free, and so break the mold?
    You cant stop now, rock and roll.
    I said you cant stop now, rock and roll
    dont stop now, come on and rock and roll!

    Reason: Well, I really like the song. It may only be 2 minutes long, but it does capture my character's personality quite well... ^^U

    RPG Name: The Scourge
    Character Name/Specific Post: Kíashkiklah
    Song or Poem: I Am (All of me) from Shadow the Hedgehog

    I see no, hear no evil
    Black writing's on the wall
    Unleashed a million faces
    And one-by-one they fall

    Black-hearted evil, or
    Brave-hearted hero
    I am all, I am all, I am

    I... I... I... I am
    Here we go, buddy, here we go, buddy
    Here we go, here we go, buddy, here we go

    Go ahead and try to see through me
    Do it if you dare
    One step forward, two steps back, I'm here
    One step forward, two steps back

    Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!

    Can you see all of me?
    Walk into my mystery
    Step inside, and hold on for dear life

    Do you remember me?
    Capture you or set you free
    I am all, and I am all of me
    I am, I am all of me

    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    Here we go

    I see and feel the evil
    My hands will crush 'em all
    You think you have the answers
    I'll laugh and watch you fall

    Black-hearted evil, or
    Brave-hearted hero
    I am all, I am all, I am

    I... I... I... I am
    Here we go, buddy, here we go, buddy
    Here we go, here we go, buddy, here we go

    Go ahead and try to see through me
    Do it if you dare
    One step forward, two steps back, I'm here
    One step forward, two steps back

    Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!

    Can you see all of me?
    Walk into my mystery
    Step inside, and hold on for dear life

    Do you remember me?
    Capture you or set you free
    I am all, and I am all of me
    I am, I am all of me

    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    Here we go

    I am, I am everyone, everywhere
    Anyhow, anyway, any will, anyday
    I am, I am everyone, everywhere
    Anyhow, anyway, any will, anyday

    I am, I am, I am
    I am, I am, I am, I am

    Do it! Do it! Do it! Do it!

    Can you see all of me?
    Walk into my mystery
    Step inside, and hold on for dear life

    Do you remember me?
    Capture you or set you free
    I am all, and I am all of me
    I am, I am all of me

    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    Here we go
    I am, I am, I'm all of me
    Here we go

    I am, I am all of me
    Reason: Well, Kíashkiklah is known as the Dragon of Blood, and the Dragon of Love, so I figured a song where he doesn't know which he is would be perfect for him. I was also debating on Getting Away with Murder by Papa Roach was also a valid choice ^^U

    Aaaaaaaand... that's bout it ^^

    RPG: A shadow upon heaven
    Song:On the turning away by pink floyd

    On the turning away
    From the pale and downtrodden
    And the words they say
    Which we wont understand
    Dont accept that whats happening
    Is just a case of others suffering
    Or youll find that youre joining in
    The turning away

    Its a sin that somehow
    Light is changing to shadow
    And casting its shroud
    Over all we have known
    Unaware how the ranks have grown
    Driven on by a heart of stone
    We could find that were all alone
    In the dream of the proud

    On the wings of the night
    As the daytime is stirring
    Where the speechless unite
    In a silent accord
    Using words you will find are strange
    And mesmerized as they light the flame
    Feel the new wind of change
    On the wings of the night

    No more turning away
    From the weak and the weary
    No more turning away
    From the coldness inside
    Just a world that we all must share
    Its not enough just to stand and stare
    Is it only a dream that therell be
    No more turning away?

    IMO this song fits the entire theme of the rpg, not just any one part :> if you get a chance listen to the song: here
    Its very touching and sad but with hope struggling to come through.
