Lost Omens Campaign Setting General Discussion


2 people marked this as a favorite.

First thread, if I'm making a mistake let me know.

I didn't wanted to necro an old thread, but I wanted to say that Silencer - Sterile Nails And Thunderbowels was perfect for good ol' Zon-Kuthon. This, or if you like french there is Gris - Cicatrices. The screams (especially on the first one at 4:26) are particulary... pleasing to ear, if you are in a kuthite mood.

Hey, if I wanted I could propose theme songs for each of the kyton demagogues.

I also feel like Nocte Obducta - Dinner Auf Uranos is particulary fitting with the Black Butterfly.

And I could not speak about gods theme song without speaking about my beloved Great Cthulhu. So here are two songs, Septicflesh - Our Church Below The Sea and Smohalla - Marche Silencieuse.

Anyway, which song do you think makes a good theme song for a god ?


Norgorber- Talking Heads- Psycho Killer
Black Butterfly- Duran Duran- Shadows On Your Side
Desna- Depeche Mode- Waiting For the Night To Fall
Arshea- The Kinks- Lola
Zon-Kuthon- The Police- King Of Pain

Today's selection:

Iomedae- Battle Born

Torag- Diggy Diggy Hole. Kind of sums up his... lack of nuance and why I find him less than interesting...

Shelyn- La Vie En Rose

Desna- Chi il ble Sogno Di Doretta

Cayden "Least Favorite Deity Ever" Cailean- Drink and Fight. A bit uncharitable, perhaps, but at least I didn't pick one I haven't occasionally sung along with...

Nethys- Space Lord

Calistria- Gold Dust Woman

Gorum- Another Body Drops. A far better and more interesting song than he deserves, really, but, hey, I'm feeling generous.

Asmodeus- Sympathy for the Devil. Kind of trite and precitable of me, but, you know...

Zon-Kuthon- Hurt. This version might be a bit more countrified than some would like for ol Zonny, but I think it works.

Norgorber- He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)

Urgathoa- Surfin’ Dead

Rovagug- Superbeast

Milani- Rock the Casbah. More thematic than literal, dontchaknow...

Naderi- La Llorona

Groetus- The End. Or Bad Moon Rising. Either one.

Moloch- Fire. Perhaps a wee bit goofy and lighthearted, but... cope.

Mephistopheles- Mephistopheles. Duh!

Nocticula- Look Out Young Son

Charon- The Halloween Theme

Arshea- Soul on Fire

Ashava- Can't Get It Out of My Head. ELO.

Hastur- My favorite version of Cassilda's Song

Cthulhu- Behold the Colossus

Yog-Sothoth- Master of Light

Ardad Lili- Don't Stop the Devil

Eiseth- As if there were any doubt whatsoever.

Doloras- Darkness, Darkness

Mahathallah- Spellbound

It's in the 'How to format your text' tab at the bottom of the page, but in case that isn't showing up:

Put in brackeds [ ] url=the website's http address, then the text for your link, and then /url at the end, also in brackets.

Speaking of which:

Gozreh - Rainbow Voice by David Hykes and The Harmonic Choir

Iomedae - Blade by Frameshift


Sarenrae- Underworld- Two Months Off (yes I like Underworld can you tell?)

Calistria - Ex's & Oh's by Elle King

Ooh, good one! I can't believe I missed such a perfect song when I hear it on my radio every morning!

Irori - Nam Myoho Renge Kyo Chant

Nichiren Buddhists wrote:

Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō

(Glory to the Sutra of the Lotus of the Supreme Law)

(Obvious, but I still feel it fits Irori.)

Lamashtu - When the Heart Fails by Passenger of... er, Expletive.

Passenger of... Expletive wrote:
*Thirty seconds of synthesizer and then loud, violent screaming*

(This song is uh... something. It's definitely something. I think about whenever I think about mindless pain and chaos. I'm not going to link it; it doesn't have any lyrics, but it's still shocking. But the rhythm of the calm, slow synthesizer mixed with intervals of screaming and beating seems perfect for Lamashtu, because it embodies an important aspect of her to me. It reminds me of birth contractions, and what is Lamashtu but the mother of monsters?)

Nethys - Evoke by After Forever

After Forever wrote:

Let it flow

Its endless beauty will evoke
A timeless sequence we all share
We cannot break through nor control
It is not at our command, no

(A perfect song for admiring the beauty and power of magic while also warning that it cannot be controlled.)

Norgorber - Scaretale by Nightwish

Nightwish wrote:

Restless souls will put on their dancing shoes

Mindless ghouls with lots of limbs to lose
Illusionists, contortionist,
Tightrope walkers tightening the noose

(It's more the sound of the music than anything lyrically which makes me think of Norgorber on this one. Someone in the comments described it as 'a mix of Pirates of the Caribbean and Tim Burton', and I feel like that's an apt description of Norgorber's profile as a mixture of rogues and terrifying assassins.)

Pharasma - Last Song by Jason Webley

Jason Webley wrote:

One night a woman took my hand

I left my home and followed her into an icy field
When I wanted to go back I'd lost the way
So she beckoned me to lie beneath the stone that always bore my name

And we say that the world isn't dying
And we pray that the world isn't dying
Just maybe the world isn't dying
Maybe she's heavy with child

(The explicit mention of death as a female figure made me think of Pharasma. Last Song's mournful dirge resigns itself to the inevitability of death, but also invokes the cyclical nature of life and death, just like Pharasma.)

Rovagug - Humans are Such Easy Prey by Perturbator

The Terminator wrote:
It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop... ever, until you are dead!

(The title says it all. The ultimate song for the ultimate predator.)

Sarenrae - Light of a Clear Blue Morning by Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton wrote:

It's been a long dark night

And I've been a waitin' for the morning
It's been a long hard fight
But I see a brand new day a dawning
I've been looking for the sunshine
You know, I ain't seen it in so long
And everything's gonna work out just fine
And everything's gonna be all right
That's been all wrong

(It's not enough that the song is about sunshine or morning. It's that it's about hope, and about redemption. The essence of Sarenrae is that no matter how bad things get, they're guaranteed to get better.)

Shelyn - Ah, Tutti Contenti (The Marriage of Figaro, Act IV) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote:

Questo giorno di tormenti, (This day of torments,)

di capricci, e di follia, (of caprice, of folly,)
in contenti e in allegria (in content and happiness)
solo amor può terminar. (only love can end it.)
Sposi, amici, al ballo, al gioco, (Friends, lovers, to dance, to play,)
alle mine date foco! (set off the fireworks!)
Ed al suon di lieta marcia (And to the sound of gay music)
corriam tutti a festeggiar! (let us all run to celebrate!)

(You could put just about any song about love or beauty for Shelyn. But I wanted something that incorporated not just love, but artistry in its highest form. The fourth act of The Marriage of Figaro ends in forgiveness, and a call for the salvation of love.)

Torag - Hard Hat and A Hammer by Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson wrote:

But there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer

Kind of glue that sticks this world together
Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land
God bless the working man

(Dwarves would totally listen to country, and you know it. So first off; mining song. But more importantly, it's a song about the quiet dignity of being a hard worker. Torag helps us find the meaning in drudgery, and reassures us of the nobility of responsibility.)

Urgathoa - Move Your Dead Bones by Dr. Reanimator

Dr. Reanimator wrote:

If you're feeling dead I'll be your reanimator

I've got the way to bring you to life
A superior existence with no one to control you
Where you can always do what you like
Let me give you some green color and you will ask for more
You will see that you never felt this way before
Party without limits, have sex and don't be blue
Freedom is eternal for you, you, you!

(You knew you weren't getting out of here without a meme song. This was an inevitability. And this stupid, stupid, STUPID song describes Urgathoa's doctrine of undeath as the ultimate in hedonism pretty well.)

Zon Kuthon - Sucker for Pain by Lil' Wayne (with Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, and X Ambassadors)

Lil' Wayne wrote:

Used to doing bad, now we feel like we just now getting it

Ain't got no other way so we started and finished it
No pain, no gain
Never stand down, made our own way
Never going slow, we pick up the pace
This is what we wanted from a young age
No emotion, that's what business is
Lord have mercy on the witnesses

(Little bit of a genre round out. Also one of only a handful of songs about torture. Even some religious intonation in there.)

Asmodeus - Queen - Princes of the Universe (think of "darkest powers" = chaos/free will, and it fits)

Chucaro - Heart - These Dreams

Desna - One Republic - Counting Stars (a bit surprised this wasn't already brought up)

Hei Feng - AC/DC - Thunderstruck (could work for Gozreh, as well)

Sarenrae - The Bangles - Eternal Flame


Ragathiel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxbPhDdxEp0 figured he'd be singing this song about Dispater.

Ragathiel - I can't think of a more fitting song for the crusading child of an archdevil.

I can think of no better work-out song for the faithful Kurgess worshiper than Pumping Iron Power by Grailknights (featuring Sabaton frontman Joakim Brodén as well)!

I was strongly reminded of Tsukiyo after listening to Moonglow, from Avantasia's upcoming album of the same name. It illustrates how some we may deem mad don't fit into the boxes our societies set for us and can be carried away to places of dark, magical wonder, and that can be a beautiful thing.

J.S. Bach - Chaconne in D. Difficult, meticulous, rigorous.


For Nocticula's existential crisis:
Mary Prankster's Mercy F..k,

No link, this is thoroughly non work friendly, as is most of her best and worst

For Urgathoa, "Wicked Ones" by Dorothy. I think of her every time I hear it.

"This night ain't for the holy man with the holy plan for the promised land / This night we got the evil hand and the evil hand gon' raise the dead"

"Ain't no sleep when the wicked play / all we do is get laid"


Pharasma: Miserere mei Deus (Allegri). A memento where Pharasmins (but not only them) remember they are mortals - and mortals are temporary beings circumscribed in the Material Plane. One day they'll die, and they be called to Pharasma for their last judgment.

This isn't a song of bitterness: the chant is an act of humility, the everlasting awareness of the mortal condition and so they asking compassion at a time when the body dies and the soul will travel into the Boneyard.

Ashava: Dancing in the Moonlight, specifically Toploader's cover version, though King Harvest's original is delightful too! The True Spark DOES make everybody feel warm and bright, and her dance is such a fine and natural sight! :D

I'd flip 'em, that cover does nothing for me... well. Except for making me think of Four Lions, which is a decidedly different vibe than Ashava gives me...

ANYWAY.

In honor of Concordance of Rivals (BUY IT NOOOOOOOOOOOW!)

Barzahk the Passage: The Monster Magnet cover of 2000 Light Years From Home

Ceyannan the Shepherd: Barton Hollow

Too on the nose for my kaiju-happy group to ever actually use, but also absolutely correct in all other ways that matter.
