Zellara's Song in Skeletons of Scarwall


Curse of the Crimson Throne

Sczarni RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

Greetings!

I was wondering if anyone knew of an appropriate tune to use for Zellara's song during the Harrowing at the beginning of Skeletons of Scarwall. I was hoping to use the Lay of Gil-Galad from the BBC radio drama of Fellowship of the Ring, but the meter isn't right :(

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

~gives another grimace~ You are right, James.

~taps Jason on the shoulder~ Jason, I am sorry for the insult of mistaking you for James Jacobs.

I like House of the Rising Sun, but if that doesn't work then you could go with Amazing Grace or even I'd Like To Teach the World to Sing.

Ohhhhhh....

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of an evil king,
Who built up this horrendous place,
And killed like it ain't no thing.

I need to find some good female singer to record a song version of this for me. I can always find music to add and make my own haunting echoy effect for the ghost thing.

Of course, this will come up two Saturdays from now so not sure if that'll happen.


Totally way to late to help, but I found that Gordan Lightfoot's "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" works, especially if you pronounce any words ending in -ed with the extra poetic syllable; ie Sustained would be sung as "Sus-tayn-ed" and not "Sus-taynd".

Other options could be "Twa Corbies", repeating every 4th verse, or, if you can master the tune, the icelandic folk song "Krumisvisur" could work.

Did you mean Krummavisur? I can't find a song named Krumisvisur?

But yeah, fareoeric or icelandic songs work.


Wonder if they have this in the History of Ashes cd by Big Finish... anyone know?
