Excellent pieces! I don't know much about music, but I like how these sound. I was hoping you could go into what you are trying to invoke with the Stockades 2 soundtrack. Stockades is pretty much an all out brawl from start to finish. Chaos. Mayhem. The music sounds much more thoughtful and *ahem* composed. :) imho, it seems really fitting for Karazhan, because it is very beautiful, but some hints that something is eerily wrong... like Karazhan ^_^Again, I don't profess to know about this stuff, so I'm honestly hoping you can inform me.

Just noticed I wrote "invoke". I meant "evoke". ^_^

Hah, I tried to make Stockades sound 'sneaky'. I guess I need to work on making things sound more violent and raw... This is what happens when you spend your whole life learning classical music. :\

^_^ You could always pull some inspiration from O Fortuna or Holst's Mars, Bringer of War. O Fortuna is probably like the epitome of smash 'em up epicality - at least among those of us with less exposure. Actually, speaking of Carmina Burana, there's also Im Taberna (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvbpiX3dBR8). I never really learned the difference between classical / Baroque and all that jazz, but I think all three of these songs/pieces have great rhythm and are just so forceful. I'm sure there are other examples too.
