January 20, 2015

Battle Bards

A new episode of Battle Bards is up!

This week is an… unusual episode for the Battle Bards, but a fun one nonetheless!  The challenge was sent out for each of the bards to pick one song apiece for his or her co-hosts.  Will they like them?  What do these picks say about how the bards see each other?  Will there be a throw-down before all is said and done?  Find out!

Battle Bards Episode 42: Runescape

January 6, 2015

Battle Bards

A new episode of Battle Bards is up!

Talk about a challenge!  How do you pick a handful of tracks to represent a game that’s been around for so long that it has over 1,000 pieces of original music in it?  Fortunately, your intrepid Battle Bards Syp, Syl and I are up to the challenge as we tackle RuneScape, that free-to-play game that probably deserves more respect than it gets.
