Battle Bards Episode 94: Drakensang

March 15, 2017

A new episode of Battle Bards is up!

Do you find the German language to be inherently terrifying? Then you’re going to love the soundtrack to this German MMORPG! Actually, it’s quite lovely and a diamond in the rough, at least according to some of the Battle Bards. Today’s episode ventures into territory marked by a drakensang — a “dragon’s song” — and emerges refreshed and renewed.
