Haha, Id like to see you play hockey listening to TSFH
I like to listen to it while battling the monsters in the land of Homework and writing epic tales of knights.
My brother actually introduced TSFH to me. It’s kinda funny really because I never was interested in Medieval/Celtic things and epic instrumental music until I read King Arthur on my own when I was like 10. Now I’m all about it!
Audiomachine is a great group too. They’re more “elegant,” though. But for those of you into Celtic music Adrian von Ziegler and Brunuhville are great. Von Ziegler’s music totally makes me want to play Skyrim and think about Vikings haha.
It’d be fun to watch until someone ends up getting hurt lol (hockey is a bit rough haha). Always listen to it while doing homework, as it actually turns rather boring material somewhat enjoyable
I was interested in medieval since the moment my friends introduced me to legend of Zelda back in elementary school. Probably why I was able to get into TSFH so easily (was also playing CH by that point.. started the game when I was 11).
Never heard of Audiomachine, will have to check em out.
Lol love the off topic (am still excited for the weekend still, have hit one milestone already).
Am a fan of TSFH, but honestly I’m just now realizing how little I’ve scratched the surface of here. Heart of Courage has made it into my music book, and I have several others on various playlists, but I’m definitely going to revisit now lol.
And yeah, Medieval-type stuff has always interested me. Got into reading the Squire’s Tale books when I was younger (hilarious retelling of Arthurian legend), and now consistently listen to the Myths & Legends podcast that delves deep into many cultures’ oral traditions and stories. Have been addicted to the Forged in Fire series (really appeals to the maker in me and who doesn’t love Doug Marcaida whacking things with sharp objects).
Another of the biggest influences for that time period was my brother and I were addicted to the games: Celtic Kings, Nemesis of the Roman Empire, Age of Empires, and Civilization. (The latter two are classics everywhere, and the previous two are the first two games in the Impervium Anthology series I believe. Very good campaign play, with relatively complex strategy.) That and the Mike Duncan podcast really fostered an interest in the Roman/post-Roman periods.
