I like this piece a lot … but it doesn’t fit its ostensible purpose very well. There’s really too much of a definite beginning and ending, too much emotional variety, too much of a storyline within the piece, for it to score RPG scenes well. During RPG play, you can’t predict when the waves will swell, when the crew drunk will come on board, when an enemy boarding party with threaten. For gaming background music, this piece might not be repetitive enough. I have used it in actual gaming situations, however, and it didn’t seem too disruptive. On the other hand, it’s a great listen by itself, like a whole pirate movie in just 8.5 minutes.
