Yay! Finally my 10th submission :D I thought it would take longer, but as I said before, I've been musically very productive these days~

Another wind-themed song. Why? Because I imagine the "City of the Bards" to be (again) as high up as the clouds so... yeah XD Today I woke up at 6 o'clock because of my brother's alarm, and then suddenly the melody for this song started coming to my mind just like that... usually i go to sleep but i said "HELL NO" and turned on the computer to write the song before I forgot how it went... It HAS happened many times that i have this awesome melody in my head that could turn into an epic song, but being nowhere near my computer, I forget it soon and later I'm like "FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU-" so, my advice, always write every cool melody you ever think of before you forget how it goes, sometimes the ones that turn most epic are the ones that were less likely to.

Now uhh, back to the song xD Yeah, I guess many of you can guess that most influence from this song came from the "Dragon Roost Island" theme from Zelda Wind Waker (Beautiful song, highly recommended)... and actually I had to modify and shorten the intro, 'cuz otherwise it would've sounded like a straight Dragon Roost Island ripoff... it still sounds a lot like it, specially in the beginning, but fortunately I was able to make the song mine after the beginning. Too bad it didn't come out as epic as I imagined it would :/ but I guess its ok XD

Ohh, I love it when the chorus starts. Sounds totally Golden Sun xD


You know what I love about this? With the right touch this could work as a chilled out battle theme. It's got this subtle drive behind it. City of the Bards battle mix!

A very nice song indeed. Let me just say that your work is fantastic. The melody and the rhythm for this song, as well as some of the instruments, remind me of the theme for Dragon Roost Island from Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

Hey hi! Actually I've already read your other comment on the Imperial Capital theme :P! Thanks a lot for the great comment!

I've actually been interested in, sometime, creating a 2nd version of this song which keeps the feeling I intended, without sounding so similar to Dragon Roost Island. Too bad school and work don't leave me with much free time, let's hope I can get some time and inspiration soon!

Yay :D!

I really like this song :o I totally see it playing in some awesome bard village! And the loop is good, because it doesn't break off, atleast that's what i think :)

A big 10 Stars for you >:o!

I'm glad to hear you like it! I actually always worked hard on the looping so it actually made sense and was game-ready ;D

Sounds awesome
