Over the past six years, Midnight Syndicate has redefined the standard for gaming soundtracks both in quality and sales. In 2003, their official soundtrack to the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game sold more copies in its first month than any other gaming soundtrack ever.
Set in a haunted Victorian mansion, The 13th Hour features Midnight Syndicate's signature blend of dark, gothic orchestration and just the right amount of chilling sound effects to enhance any horror RPG or boardgame experience. Perfect for Call of Cthulhu!
This soundtrack is officially approved by Chaosium Games for use with the Call of Cthulhu RPG.

Review: I've had this CD going on six months now and it's compelling to listen to it even when not playing any RPG's. I've used it for background music while working online, meditating and reading Lovecraft.
It's hard to say which track I like best but if I had to choose one, it'd be "Time Outside of Time" as this sets the mood for the rest of the CD. It has a very nefarious tone to it with the choral singing in a minor key. Further you get the sense of peering into the lair on one of those nights when the planets are aligned correctly and you just "know" something bad is going to happen!
I've turned on a LOT of people to the Midnight Syndicate & Nox Arcana CD's in an attempt to give folks something else in which to experience the setting of a mood, for that is exactly what this music is all about.
This particular CD would be great used as music for Halloween and Trick or Treaters.
