Arctic Excursion - from the RPG & TableTop Audio Experts

How do you imply an arctic setting with sound? This track does it with wind, and with the occasional avalanche-like tumble of snow and boulders plus the cracking of thick ice. I think you might also be able to hear some dogs (or walruses?) barking in the distance, but I'm not sure about that—which means those particular sounds are subtle enough to imply a vague threat, or a vague hope of assistance. If I'd had this track back when I ran a series of antarctic adventures, I'd likely have used it to help set the mood. Thinking more broadly, you could also use this track for a heavy snowstorm in an urban environment, or perhaps a post-apocalyptic ice age.

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 each, the price is very reasonable.

The Arctic Excursion soundscape includes blustery wind, cracking ice, rumbling of a potential avalanche. This track seems to have some suspenseful background music to it, but it is very subtle and non-distracting. I paired this track into a playlist with Arctic Excursion 2, and they matched seamlessly.
