Battle Bards Episode 99: Tropical resort

The Battle Bards are on vacation at a tropical beach paradise! In the team’s 99th episode, they examine beach, resort, and island music cues from MMORPGs. Can it still be a resort when everything around you is out for murder? As long as the music is this good, who cares?

Battle Bards is a bi-weekly podcast that alternates between examining a single MMO’s soundtrack and exploring music tracks revolving around a theme. MOP’s Justin co-hosts with bloggers Steff and Syl. The cast is available on iTunes, Google Play, TuneInPocket CastsStitcher, and Player.FM.

Here is an early congrats on your 100th episode. My favorite episode was the elf themed episode, it featured really lovely music. It’s also funny having the cast disagree on the worth of elves.

My favorite song this week was Port BGM.
