    Default Opening song

    Does anybody know which song is played in the characters screen?
    Who sings it, its name?
    And if the song was made only to DDO, does anybody knows the lyrics?

    Thanks

    I believe all music for DDO is custom composed. There is a dedicated thread available:

    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...-Dragons-Music .

    You are looking for the MotU era in this thread. There are some lyrics in the character select screen, but I can hardly understand them.

    Like most games, the music composers usually remain fairly unknown unless an official soundtrack is released.

    I don't think so. Just generic vocals. The title is just "Main Theme", composed by Chance Thomas.

    The first post has a bit of background info on it. Chance does a lot of work for Turbine, though mostly on the LOTRO end of things. Riders of Rohan's soundtrack was done entirely by him.

    Interesting. I have the music in game turned all the way down (and DM voice-over and most everything else) so it doesn't drown out party chat. So, I had never heard that before ... and I have to say I don't really feel I am missing anything. The music isn't *bad*. It's just not spectacular, either. Anyway, thanks for exposing me to part of the game I am otherwise not exposed to on a daily basis.

    The only time I turn my music on is in what goes up. The music that plays while you are outside on the glacier is good enough to warrant drowning out out party chat.

    One of the tracks that Chance Thomas made for MotU has vocals in a Drow dialect of Elvish.

    It's actually 'Kill the Tessen', sung to the beat of kill the rabbit.

    My sister noticed this the other week and now it's all I can hear.


    For composers and all that, you might try looking through the credits for DDO. These are found right when you log in on the character selection screen.


    Additionally, here's a link to the music from Shadow-fell Conspiracy, in case you're interested:
