Note: The actual full title of this song is "The Constellations Halls of Nascent Ruins" but with 30 character limit, us composers who like to use long names for their tracks are just SoL, lol. :3


This is the thirteenth song of the mock RPG soundtrack, taking inspiration from the "Ruins with Advanced Technology" suggestion.

Nascent Ruins is located on an icy peninsula off of the Northern coast of Amissa Island, hidden by the emerald snow. Only an experienced traveler with an accurate map and strong will to traverse the ice would discover these ancient ruins of a race long forgotten.

While the outside of these ruins seem desolate, once a traveler gains entry, they will begin to see the truth of these technologically advanced structures. Thought to have been built by an intelligent race from another planet eons ago, much of Nascent Ruins remains unexplored simply because explorers cannot figure out how to open the sheen metallic doors.

The Constellation Halls, nicknamed as such for the appearance of its inner walls and floor, lie at the center of the ruins in the largest high-domed structure of the complex. Upon entry, explorers are surprised to see that the floor and walls seem transparent, and upon closer inspection a learned traveler will realize that the walls and floor replicate a moving solar system, one that they are free to walk around and explore up close.

A single black onyx pedestal adorns the mostly empty room, and upon it are slots and dials, as well as other panels and what is believed to be a fingerprint recognition device. While there is still power running through the pedestal, it is highly advised to travelers to not attempt to activate the contraption. It is common knowledge that an adventurous scholar made his way to the very pedestal, and upon trying to activate the device numerous times with his own hand, accidentally triggered a defense mechanism that showered him and his entourage with incendiary weaponry reminiscent of a meteor shower.

In addition to the only pedestal, in the corner is a bipedal machine of some sort that is in poor working order. The metallic material it is composed of has yet to be identified, but is a constant subject of curiosity since it seems to repair itself slowly over time when damaged. It was switched on once, and to the shock of the adventurer who found the button, the robot accosted him with quite colorful language and turned itself back off.

Rumor is that the onyx pedestal is the key to discovering an airship of incredible technology that is powered by cosmic energy. No adventurers have yet discovered the secret to the mysterious onyx pedestal, however many are satisfied with gazing upon the active solar system display upon its walls.

Quite a journey for the mind...

..when imagining uses for this song. My main thought is more about an interstellar craft that defies the cosmos and streaks through the night sky, looking down from a glass floor to see planets and galaxies under your feet as you pass by.

Or, you know, could be used as a nice theme to go with a happy-go-lucky robot taking his first steps on a long journey across the universe. That's the overall theme I'm getting from this song, that of 'Technological Happiness', along with a strong feeling of exploration. I'm quite impressed on this project of yours.

Great story and great rythm, What else does a song need?
