    One REEALLY good soundtack I use for horror is a various artist compilation called Death Odors. If anyone needs some music I can try to e-mail you an mp3 or two . . . or is that possible?

    I’m glad to see Dead Space got a shout out.

    I’ll also look into that ‘Book of Unremitting Horror”

    No. No I do not. Motorcycles, destruction and “TETSUO!” notwithstanding.

    I picked up the Book of Unremitting Horror and am currently running my group thought i senerio inside

    *SPOILERS*
    They are about half way throught it. the problem i have is making sure to give them all the ghosts ands clues as the story is a bit spread out throught the house, but so far they do not even suspect the Jack Duffy or Mobster involvment.

    Some more good horror gaming music I’ve found is pretty much anything by Midnight Syndicate. They’re one of the leaders in ambient music for spook houses and the like. Another excellent soundtrack is the one for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which has lots of tracks of eerie ambient background noise for the dungeons.

    I’ll admit, the opening of this podcast scared me. Here’s why:

    I just finish listening to episode 22. I figure I don’t care too much to listen to the rest of the conet project play. I hit start on this episode to get it going and realize “Crap, I forgot to hit stop on the last one” so I hit pause and yet the conet project doesn’t stop running. I’m sitting here a bit like “why in the hell didn’t it end!?” and then I realized it was this episode’s opening which blended in perfectly and subtly with the ending of last episode.
