When I picked up my copy of Tomb of Annhilation, shortly after I started my drive home, "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns N' Roses came up on my music system. That song immediately makes me think of Yuan-Ti and insane Lich traps in the darkest part of Chult now. Couldn't have made that up.So, I was thinking about music, and D&D, and how sometimes music is indelibly associated with a particular time and event.
And I was wondering if anyone else had this- when they read a particular module, or rulebook, a particular song came to mind? Or, perhaps, if they heard a song, that a particular module/rulebook etc. came up?
For me, there are a few that spring easily too mind. Bear with me, I'm old.
1. Pharaoh (I3) and the Thompson Twins. Okay, more specifically, Doctor Doctor. For whatever reason, I have a specific memory of beginning the read-through of I3 (in order to run it) while Doctor Doctor played on a car radio while returning ... probably from a Waldenbooks.
2. Lost City (B4) and Pyromania. Don't judge, but we played Def Leppard, specifically Pyromania, while running B4. Even more specifically, I can't hear Photograph without thinking of Zargon.
3. Deities and Demigods. Pink Floyd (the Wall). Again, the first time I read D and D, these were playing on my friend's stereo. From his cassette tapes. Look it up. They were like mp3s, but less versatile.
So those are a few. What about the rest of you? Do you have any music / D&D pairing that are indelibly etched into your. consciousness?
It's his first real campaign, I was going to let him play whatever he wanted. He wants to play a Gnome Charlatan Bard with a bubble pipe and 80's entry music? Sure, no sweat. Would I let you play that same character without a whole lot of mockery? Hell no.I mean, on the one hand, awesome job getting your kid so involved! That's great! Also a great age for RPGing.
On the other hand, friends don't let friends bard.
For some reason, this put the theme song to Kid Video into my head. And because I'm a giver. now so do youIt's his first real campaign, I was going to let him play whatever he wanted. He wants to play a Gnome Charlatan Bard with a bubble pipe and 80's entry music? Sure, no sweat. Would I let you play that same character without a whole lot of mockery? Hell no.
Did I mention his small squirrel friend? Usually played by my two year-old who wants to be doing what the big kids are doing. He's planning to MC into Warlock to add a familiar too. Sometimes parenthood is a struggle.shiver
Now that is some unconditional love.
In my house, I would have been all, "YOU ARE NO CHILD OF MINE! BEGONE, SATAN-SPAWN!"
Different parenting styles, and all that.
