Epic Music Inspires!

Although I don't listen to music when writing, I do enjoy a good song while brainstorming.

Zack Hemsey is a formidable musician. Get ready to enjoy some great songs!

Your hero's comrade stumbles into temptation and struggles not to fall. 
The darkest part of his soul emerges, grows stronger, and slowly takes over him. The man who was once a confidant and a shoulder to lean on has now become an enemy.

Cue See What I've Become:

Your hero is wandering the land, exhausted and with crumbling hopes. He is about to encounter that which will make him wish he had never been born. A great song for a moment of reflection, and of revelation.

Cue The Way:

The dying cry out in anguish until, little by little, the battlefield falls into silence. Your hero trudges through the mud. His boots stick with every step he takes. His clothes cling to his cold body. Blood and rainwater seep through his pants and make goose bumps rise on his skin. The battle is over. Your hero is victorious... but was the killing worth it?

Cue End Of An Era:

I hope you enjoyed this selection!
