Ambience Vol.1: Dark Textures [BUNDLE] (audio product)



About this bundle: The soundscapes in this bundle were created for "dark" environments. Even though they are named for specific places, they can work for any setting as they are more emotionally driven than designed for a specific place. In other words, you can use them anywhere to envoke a certain mood in your games. Feel free to get creative. In fact, listening to them can be just plain inspiring and may even add to your creativity when creating a setting or circumstance for your players. Have fun!

 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

Battlefield Ruins

You’ve come across a distant battlefield after the battle has recently ended. Bodies lie here and there and the remaining armies have long fled. 

Content: Somewhat more musical than many of the tracks, this one is foreboding and a little exotic.  intermittentsounds of a raven or crow. A tattered flag flapping in the wind. Rocks from a nearby wall crumble to the ground. The music is subtle and ambient. It's a very atmospheric peice that introduces the feeling of dread and suffering yet impies tension to any setting. It's one of the only "Background" soundscapes that contains subtle musical elements.

Uses: Perfect for a battlefield setting, as implied in the title, where the battle is over and...

 Ambient Environments - Defiling the Crypt
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

Defiling the Crypt

A stone opening slides back as you enter. A thick mist of ancient origin wafts past you as you make your way inside. You instantly succumb to a cold chill that embeds itself deep into your bones. That feeling you're being watched becomes hard to shake. Fear sinks to the pit of your stomach and you swallow hard to regain your courage. You rally forward to hear a spirit's hallow wail above the din of feint whispers from troubled souls of long past. You should have thought this through a little more and packed that chamber pot you left behind. Dealing with a wet leg amongst all this other rubbish is just distracting.

Content:  Dark ambient tones, and echoey textures, whispers of distant occurrences and spirits. Occasional low ...

 Ambient Environments - Dungeon Crawling
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

Dungeon Crawling

Here we are again. Somewhere underground in a damp, dark, and unfortunate place searching for treasure guarded by who-knows-what. Well, might as well get this over with. Sword? -check Armor? -check Rations? -oops...always forget that. At least you brought the important stuff.

*note: This soundscape was recently updated for better quality. The old soundscape is now called "Dungeon With Traps".

Content: Mysterious ambient drone. Burning torch and flurries as you pass it from hand to hand or move abruptly. There are occasional monster groans but they could be confused with sounds of the wind in the underground lair. *If you want a similar soundscape with traps and events, check out this one: Dungeon With Traps

Uses: Perfe...

 Ambient Environments - Egyptian Tomb
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

Egyptian Tomb

You clamber down the rope into a dark chamber below. The temperature changes the further you go. Deep into the abyss of a place designed to keep people like you out. The treasure of the pharoah await you and so do the things they put in place to guard it.

Content: Ominous whispers. A floating texture accompanied by egyptian instruments that occasionally chime in. They're subtle and don't detract from the intention of this soundscape. Sometimes, there are sublte moans to indicate mummies reside here as well.

Uses: Perfect for an Egyptian setting. A tomb, pyramid, or something similar. Can be used in pultiple genres. 

Settings: Fantasy, Horror, Modern, Backgrounds, Ambient

Time - 10:00 min


 Ambient Environments - Lost in the Labyrinth
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

Lost in the Labyrinth

We've been circling this place for hours, no, days! Who knows?! It's hard to tell which way is up. Directions don't exist in this place. The walls seems to close in with every step. There's that statue again! We're going in circles. We're never gonna get out of here!

Content:  Heavy yet airy drone with whispery, high magical tones accompanied by a whistling wind. The drone feels foreboding at times, circling back and forth to symbolize confusion, assisted by a “wracking” sound like a quick bowing of a stringed instrument back-and-forth—combined to give you the feeling of disorientation.

Uses: Great for creating suspense. It's a rather generic track that can work in many settings.


 Ambient Environments - Nyarlathotep
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40


Nyarlathotep can be anything you can imagine and if you’ve ever met him you wouldn’t have imagined it was him. He’s elusive and manipulative and dangerous. If he enters your dreams you’ll never be the same.

Contents: Dark ambient textures and tones infused with fear and loss. Plenty of whispering voices from the beyond. This is one of my favorite "dark" soundscapes along with The Cult of Transcendence, The Dreams in the Witch House and Lurker at the Threshold. They are very dark. I feel the evil emanating from them. Listening with the lights out is not advised. Unless, of course, your intention is to creep your players out. Then by all means, listen to it with the lights out.


 Ambient Environments - Radioactive Wasteland
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

Radioactive Wasteland

The wastes span endlessly before you. The green haze of radioactive waste rises slowly through the low hanging amber cloud of polluted substances in a nice gradient worthy of a beautiful Monet painting. That is, if it wasn’t so putrid. The air smells of sulfur and tastes of iron. If you took your gasmask off to inhale, the burning in your nostrils accompanied by an early gag reflex and choking sound would become your last breath. Pray the mutants kill you before the “air” takes hold of you. Suffocating on methane and whatever else is floating around out there is no way to go.

Content: A great landscape of ambient textures that supports a dreadful hopelessness needed for a post-apocalyptic wasteland.


 Ambient Environments - Temple of Dread
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

Temple of Dread

The temple of dread ruins seemed so inviting from the brochure (a map you stole from some unworthy Kobold)--that you decided to vacation there this year only to realize it was nowhere on the map. So you hunted down your friend and he found a friend of a friend who knew where it was "rumored" to be. Of course, they all wanted to go with you so off you went. Sure enough the temple was there...kinda. 

Content: Ambient drones with a feel of mystery and a light musical accompaniment.  

Uses: Though created with a temple type setting in mind, this ambient music can be used for any setting. There’s a consistent rumble underneath that implicates a feeling of dread.

Settings: Horror, Fantasy, M...

 Ambient Environments - The Dreams in the Witch House
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

The Dreams in the Witch House 

Nyarlathotep, “the Black Man”, is here haunting your dreams in the house that once belonged to notorious witch, Keziah Mason. Here, the Crawling Chaos will take you over. He is in control of everything you do. There is no fleeing. Let go and be free.  

Contents: A whispery atmosphere. Talking demonic voices. Creepy and eerie textures. People chanting in an unknown language. This is one of my favorite "dark" soundscapes along with The Cult of Transcendence, Nyarlathotep and Lurker at the Threshold. They are very dark. I feel the evil emanating from them. Listening with the lights out is not advised. Unless, of course, your intention is to creep your players out. Then by a...

 Ambient Environments - The Lurker at the Threshold
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

The Lurker at the Threshold

This is the name given to Yog-Sothoth in August Darleth and H.P. Lovcraft’s novel of the same title. He is a cosmic entity, an Outer God that is coterminous with all time and space yet locked outside of the universe we inhabit.” Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They have trod earth's fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread.”—H. P. Lovecraft, "The Dunwich Horror"

Contents: Ominous tones of horror. On occasional “heartbeat&r...

 Ambient Environments - Tomb of the Ancients
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.40

Tomb of the Ancients

Dark and ominous ambient drone with a low rumble and some minor musical additions. Created to represent impending doom with a claustrophobic feel.  If you have a subwoofer on your sound system, you’ll definitely feel this one.

Content: Subtle ambient textures. No sound effects in this one but it works as a background piece.

Uses: Perfect to embed a "creepy vibe" to any setting.

Settings: Fantasy, Horror, Ambient

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
