  • Best song for moment of solar Exaltation?

    Hi! I'm putting together a playlist for my Solar game. Everyone is starting out as standard starting Solars except for the Zenith who is exalting early on in the first game. Does anyone have good suggestions for a suitable song to have going during the big moment? My playlist is reasonably eclectic but leans towards game and film soundtracks, though I'd consider anything suitably stirring and epic.

    A bit cliche perhaps but I'll always associate Number One with outrageous explosions of power.

      Depends a lot on what sort of person your Zenith-to-be is, I guess? Can you describe more about them?

      For general epicness, I recommend going to a YouTube channel called Two Steps From Hell and just picking something at random, it's unlikely to be wrong. But here's a good start:



      "Measure of Hope is right about everything." - Wise Old Guru

      Currently running an Exalted 2.5 Abyssals game in a homebrew modern shard because I value neither my time or my sanity, and I'm loving almost every minute of it.

        Heh! My playlist has a LOT of Two Steps from Hell in it already and I love it.

        Let's see, he's a charismatic giant barbarian from the frozen north who's traveled a long way south to Nexus for Reasons with his small cult.

          Aha! I present for your consideration:

            Can I recommend "Princes of the Universe" by Queen?

              Well, typically solar exaltation arrives at a moment of certainty and success against the insurmountable, or during an epiphany. A very obvious choice for a moment of righteous defiance is the song of the dragonborn, and dreadful revelation goes with Olgierd's theme song.
              If it's coming with an epiphany, something on the lines of vigil is great for introspective, contemplative quietude.

                I've a soft spot for Gold. Little on the nose, but it's got the sense of momentum just right for an Exaltation IMO.

                    RWBY music is great Exalted fodder, but Gold isn't the first choice I'd make for a Solar exaltation. Not even the first Yang song. I'd go with I Burn for that :

                      And here it is in the context that makes it so (minor spoilers for episode six of the first season of Attack on Titan):

                        Mmm. Different strokes. I Burn is great for Solar Glory and battle prowess while Gold is a bit more spiritual to me.

                        (Can we at least agree that we all want the Vol6 soundtrack already? ^^)

                              Little weird, but can we get an idea on what the moment is expected to be like? I mean difference between the music you play with a big fight's turn around, the rousing speech to rally the troops, flying into righteously driven berserker rage, or talking an antagonist out of whatever villainy they were planning.
