Hi @GerberGEEK, I would recommend a station based on video game soundtracks like Mass Effect, Final Fantasy, and Halo. They create a good epic feel without being too dramatic. You might want a separate station for boss battles based on artists like Two Steps From Hell. If you want some starter stations, feel free to use mine: Overly Dramatic Film Scores Video Game/Movie Soundtracks: Songs for Epics Songs of Quiet Courage
My DM organizes his music library by setting and mood. He selects a category for a scene and hits random. Sometimes we all pause when the perfect music cue starts at just the right moment.
You could create playlists like Combat, Exploration, Nature, Nautical, Taverns, and Spooky. Skyrim has great background music for exploration. I created a playlist with my favorites here. If you're looking for something authentic, Pandora has a lot of nature sounds including dozens of tracks from the Disney nature films. You can find music for taverns from Skyrim, Dragon Age 2, and an entire album of bard songs from Dragon Age Inquisition.
You can curate a playlist and hit random but be careful about letting it slip to Autoplay. Autoplay is nice but it may select some off the mark tracks. Unless you don't mind Tom Petty showing up in the middle of a dungeon crawl.
Thanks for trying @bp4437, but I still can't access your playlists. I'm only a Pandora Plus user, but I should still be able to listen to your plalyists with ads. I suspect your account is set to private. You can change that by following these instructions:
This thread is cool, thanks! Was in a Pathfinder group for a few years, maps based on H.P. Lovecraft - so we often listened to dark gothic shoegazing type music (we would have listened to dark gothic fishgazing music if we could find it LOL)
