Very nice! As it happens, I have an immediate use for this. There's
a death scene in Northern Rebirth that needs a better soundtrack than
it has now; while Mattias West did a wonderful job on "Breaking The
Chains" (which I moved to mainline last night with Ivanovic's
encouragement), Taurus and I don't think his "Sad" is quite up to
snuff. We had exchanged email in which we contemplated asking you for
a replacement; I think you just supplied it.
(West, if you're reading this, we are still very much looking forward
to final versions of "Legends of the North" amd "Price of Victory". Your
longer-form stuff with full orchestration is still a hit with us.)
Devs, I'll re-tag this using the new tagging conventions and check it in as
'tragedy.ogg' unless I hear objections during the next day or so.
Zhaytee, I don't know what other devs have in mind, but if you're looking
for new Wesnoth-related projects, here's a wish list from me:
* Orcish theme music. I wanna hear hobnailed boots, rough male choruses,
big martial horns, kettledrums, lots of menace and stupidity.
