Sound of a Desert Nightmare

album cover - Necronomicon by Nox ArcanaAwhile back, I talked about artwork that inspires me as a GM. My game is currently in a three week hiatus while I plot the campaign’s next chapter, which includes a trip to a not-very-nice desert location.

My plotting was thrown into high gear this weekend when I just stumbled upon the album, “Necronomicon”, from a band called Nox Arcana.

This album is the perfect complement to horror in the desert. It has lots of references to the Cthulhu Mythos, but it’s mostly instrumental, so it’ll work with lots of different settings. Several tracks have a distinct Eastern flair that works nicely if your next adventure involves deserts and mummies and other creepiness. Whether your game is fantasy or pulp horror or sci-fi, there’s always room for something ancient and sandy and horrifying. (Seems like there should be a joke there….) So pour yourself a cup of coffee, put on the headphones, and let Nox Arcana help you write the characters’ demise next heroic exploit.
