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.
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.
I usually dont post like this... but that f'n rocks!
Now that I've heard the music, I will be compelled to search for this Music Box for all time and eternity.
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...
There is already a Music and Artwork section under Items.
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!
Reminds me of Hellrazer 5/5
