Land of the Giants - from the RPG & TableTop Audio Experts

The titular giants apparently live in a rocky, windswept clime. The track gives us wind, but I hear no rustling of trees. The overall effect makes me think of tundra, or maybe a place with the terrain Arizona's or New Mexico's canyon country, but a lot colder. I'm not quite sure why the track suggests such a northern reach to me; maybe it's that the wind sounds so much like the wind in Gil Luna's explicitly arctic soundscapes. The percussion in this piece could just be a way to provide a sense of menace, but it makes me think of giants beating drums, or throwing rocks at each other. Hill giants, stone giants, and maybe frost giants populate my mind while this track plays; fire giants and storm giants, not so much. The piece is great for exploration of giants' territory or negotiation with said giants. I would not recommend it for a combat scene; the pace is too slow for that.

The Ambient Environments soundscapes are quality recordings that combine sound and music into an audio atmosphere for your storytelling games. Each track is ten minutes long, with no fade in/out at the start or end, making them perfect for continuous looping. While reviewing this series, I played each track in the background and often didn't notice when it had started over. The sound levels are compressed very well, which means that there will be very few distracting volume changes when you play these during a session. And at $1.49, the price is very reasonable.

Land of the Giants soundscape includes wind, native drums and other percussion, and some ambient background music. This track could be used for any outdoor scene that has grown tense and suspenseful (with or without the presence of giants).
