Music of Mordalin


This is the music played by the music box of Mordalin. It can be downloaded and comes in two mp3 versions: a repeatable version, and a non-repeatable version.

Excerpt from the music box description:

Driven to madness by his own ego, syphilis and personal failures, Mordalin fell to the basest of human follies; Chaos Worship. Under the tutelage of Futharius, the Clockwork-Master, Mordalin learnt the secrets of creation and the connection between music, speech and the Essence of Reality.

The music box is rumoured to have been his final creation, his last piece of work before insanity and Chaos claimed him at long last.

When someone opens the music box, the figurine of a lady clad in a black dress will begin to turn. Weird, slow music will play and slowly a thick fog will pour out of it. The music will not be stopped and the lid will not close until ten minutes have passed. Strange marshlights / wisps will float out of the box along with the fog and after a while the surroundings will appear like a dark dream world. The box acts like a beacon to all restless spirits and roaming dead.

I am honoured!

I linked the music to the item, and to a scenario I created, in which the item could possibly be found. (The item was originally created for that scenario)

For me, the link is broken. "Page not found."

Strange. I have asked Chaosmark to check it out. For me the links work fine.
February 1, 2006, 15:18
Indeed, I have checked the links, and they work fine for me. I believe the problem, if any, is on your end.

It might be that you have blocked mp3's in your firewall or in your browser!

Very odd. I have tried it in both firefox and IE. No settings should block it. Oh well, I don't want to take up space on what seems to be a good post. I'll comment on it again if I can find a way to hear it!

For me, details like this really make or break a game. Well composed, haunting, very fitting for the source item. Well done.

Now that I've heard the music, I will be compelled to search for this Music Box for all time and eternity.

Maybe longer.

Whew - A big thankyou to Nobody for e-mailing me the music file. Inexplicably, the link also works for me now. Great stuff! This is a first for the Citadel as well - who knows, maybe in a year or two the Citadel will have a "Music" and "Artwork" section...

Just a thought - anyways, love the music, and it really fits with the quest as well. Cool idea, and good execution!

I do have art I would like to put up...
February 15, 2006, 7:56
There is already a Music and Artwork section under Items.
February 15, 2006, 8:00
I was referring to actual art... not game inspired artworks. But artwork drawn for my game.

GAH! I haven't voted on something that I keep in my "Will love for eternity" playlist! 5/5! 5/5! 5/5!

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
