Inspiration & Stringcheese

Inspiration strikes at the oddest moments. Here I sit in a local coffee shop with my iPad and my Burning Wheel Gold book with every intention to get some reading done. I fire up Pandora on the iPad while I check out facebook and Stringcheese Incident begins playing. This is the kind of music that grips your soul and say ” Hey! Open you mind sand soul.”

So, I open my soul and the music is giving me great ideas for a wide variety of themes for future RPGs. Not to shabby for one song. Music is by far the biggest inspiration for game ideas. Movies are number two. Reading? Not really, I read so much for work and reviewing books and modules for the blog that reading other stuff is limited to very little.

Inspiration is as beautiful thing is it not? ¬†Capturing that inspiration is what it’s all about. Tail Dragger by Wide Spread Panic also conjures up some great vivid images and ideas. God help my players!

I know we have talked about inspiration before, but name a song or musical score that was or is inspirational and how it impacted your gaming. Go!

Ps. For those that play in my games, if you face natural disaster and obstacles you can blame Stringcheese Incident and Ben Harper. Fear the tail dragger too!
