Musical Interlude

Back in the mid-90s there was a game released that I played a lot – probably the only game I played more was Master of Orion 2. The game was called Emperor of the Fading Suns, a 4X game based on the Fading Suns RPG universe. It was a fairly grim, gothic setting. Consider it the Dark Ages in Space and you get the idea; knights and nobles and peasants and superstition and the inquisition. Not as grimdark as WH40K, but certainly not the happiest of settings.

If any game could have a sequel/remake done, this game tops my list.

Part of the appeal of the game was the soundtrack. It fitted perfectly. The other day on a forum elsewhere, the question arose of favourite game soundtracks and I remembered EFS. So I got out the old CD, ripped the music off it and started listening to it again. It makes great music to write too.

I also found the tracks on youtube so as a musical interlude I’ll start working the way through them.

Fading Suns

Battle

For the Fallen

I also discovered a copy of the introduction to the game, though with Spanish subtitles. The CGI may look dated now, but back in its day it was good.
