Greetings, glorious adventurers! If you're joining in our Alpha One spot testing, please follow the steps here to see all the latest test info on our forums and Discord!

Main Themes /Soundtracks for the different Races. What would be your Inspiration ?

I can currently think of only ONE Song ... ...

... ... and no, i refuse to let People say i make Fun of these Hippy-Dwarfes. 😁


The Niküa. They have a Beach Summer Feeling - and i must think of a more or less very known Song of a Franchise that has suffered tremendously from Wokeness since a handful of Years and above. Ariel, the little Mermaid. Under the Sea. ;)

Now i am aware of Course, the other Races need their cool Flair, Atmosphere, Vibe and Feeling embodied in a Theme, as well.

Can i hope for our Man " TheDarkSorcerer " to find a Theme for the Empyrean Elves ? ;) I just have the Feeling he might know just the Theme for them. >:)


While i have a good Guess where i might find fitting Themes - > i don't just want to search in Soundtracks of World of WoW-Token Craft once again ... ... ... ... ... ... ... that Game is just cursed. 😅

    (So, anyone dedicated to sound and music please pardon my absolutely dreadful vocabulary in the matter....)

    What a fun thread! I'll give it a go!

    Py'rai would definitely be something like Merlyn - Riverlands.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFDTST7Oe3g
    Gentle flute music with forest ambience. A wood pecker, small birds singing, a river flowing nearby. Maybe the occasional sound of small wood critters.

    Empyrean would probably have something in the lines of Brombaer Celestial Aeon Project - The Eleven Realm. (My mistake, I was misremembering the artist!)
    https://open.spotify.com/track/5kVSnfhrcFmtGYzaJ2vaWo?si=7423aefd869b40a6 - Sorry, could not find a YouTube link!
    Higher tones, elegant vocal choir and music that preferably would involve instruments like the harp. Beautiful bird song and the shimmer of magical essence as ambience.

    For Dünir I'd imagine something similar to League of Legends - Ornn, the Fire Beneath the Mountain.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dngwUyqXXt8
    Rhythmic humming and steady music. Northern inspired. Ambience of hammers clanking on an anvil, fire crackling and water being splashed on flaming hot steel.

    Niküa would have something more cheerful like Adrian von Ziegler - Pearls of the Seas.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax1q2h5zxx0
    Something light, cheerful and curious with exotic instruments. Seagulls, tropic birds and waves of the ocean as ambience.

    Kaelar should have something like Midnight Syndicate - City of Sails.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OALzJkTYLqU
    Traditional high fantasy music, with that epic adventurous feeling to it. The ambience of horse and cart, church bells ringing in the distance, perhaps a distant dog barking, working people shouting out to each other.

    Vaelune would probably have something a bit more eastern, like Adrian von Ziegler - Son of the Hawk.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65J31uEH1pw
    Serious undertone but not dark nor gritty, steady flow. Carts being rolled, the sound of trade goods being moved about, vendors shouting, local animals (like camels?) grunting as ambience.

    Vek made me think of Justin Bell - Ondras Gift.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3FUmItPTys
    A bit of a twinkle in the music, but otherwise calm and gentle. Mysterious but inviting, like the stars! I'd imagine the sound of papers being gently turned, low mysterious glimmering noises from radiant crystals and perhaps the sound of dripping water.

    Ren'Kai seems to have just hint of the eastern-asian fantasy to them so I'd go with such music. The first that came into mind was Johannes Bornlöf - Nippon (A Single Grain of Rice).
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4CjzaVSVC0
    Steady and beautiful tunes. I image one would hear the sound of water flowing and faint bird singing in the background.

    The Tulnar is probably the trickiest. I'd go with Micheal Ghelfi & Filip Melvan - Moonlight Tavern
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc2WBOUJgck
    Especially from 1:25
    To capture the mystique of the Tulnar. However, I imagine that they will require a lot of different themes based on their broad heritage and culture.

    Oh... I got slightly carried away...

    EDIT: added YouTube links to lessen the hassle for those interested. :] And corrected myself as I got two names mixed up!

    Oh! Those Hogwarts Legacy tracks actually work so well for empyrean and kaelar! Man, their audio team did soooo well! <3

    I am so hyped to hear the tracks that AoCs team will bring! I am positive it will be amazing! :]

  • NICE !!!!!! 😁👍 i "KNEW" i could count on you all. 😎 😁


    But daymn you shot through the Roof with all those Soundtracks. I am personally a bit hesitant what Soundtracks of World of WoW-Token Craft concerns. But jeah the Vek give me Troll-Vibes as well. ;)


    I wonder if we can expect and count on some Soundtracks, Themes for Races to come out, around Alpha Two. I could imagine this to be Questions for the next Months to come, too.

    While I actually love a lot of WoW sound tracks (Grizzly Hills is a personal favorite) - none of my suggestions come from WoW c: with few exceptions (like the League track) most of my songs come from TTRPG- composers!

    I see You are a Grizzly Hills Enjoyer of Culture as well. ;)

    Thanks if you managed to keep from using World of WoW-Token Soundtracks. 😁 i know in the Heroes of Might and Magic Series and Games like Gothic and somewhere else, one might find way more worthy Soundtracks for inspirational Purposes. ;)

    Ancient Roman feels for the Empryean

    I definitely would not mind if they took inspiration from such historical pieces! However, the very start felt more.... Vaelune to me. I am afraid I have no idea what the instrument that I associate with music from the middle east is called, but it has a very unique ring to it!

    ''Ren'Kai shouldn't just have Japanese influence, but Mongolian too imo.''

    I agree. I like my orcs brutish and massive. The skinny ones depicted in concept art don't do it for me...
  • Ohhhh if we would only know more already.

    About the Races, about the Nodes (Underground ones, too) - and of Course over the Soundtracks and their Atmosphere they contain.
