Regalia Phase 2 Underway: Enter to Win Prizes!


Caves of Narshe Site News
Earlier today, I shut down the nomination phase. Sorry to those who were too lazy to get it done! It's possible you might not have gotten your favorite song in to the top sixty-four nominations by missing out, but it's okay, because now it's time for the second phase, and it's much faster to do this one and it's the part where you can win prizes.

https://regalia.cavesofnarshe.com/ is still where it's at. If you go back today, you'll see something similar to before, but now there are only sixty-four songs to choose from, and you only choose five. The new list is alphabetized, so that nobody has any idea which songs were most popular - from that list, you choose, in order, which ones you think will be the top five after everyone votes on the matchups which will be coming soon. Once you submit your list, you're entered to win the prizes we showed a month ago!

We'll leave this phase open until at least November 1, after which we'll get the voting started. Please remember to share to social media after you make your picks, because everyone everywhere can still play, whether they nominated or not!

I'll post the list of sixty-four as a subsequent comment to this news post for folks who want to see it before making their picks.

Glenn Magus Harvey I see you survived the hurricane!

Does the order of these five predictions matter?

We didn't even get more than a half inch of rain at my house. It swung the other way.

Yes, in this case, the order is vital. Pick the top five in order.

I agree. Do I go with my heart? Or my brain? (It's all very difficult)

TheEvilEye I'm picking the top 5 with my brain, but voting with my heart. Let's not have a repeat of last time!

Rangers51 Here's a YouTube playlist I put together of the top 64 - they're mostly alphebetized but I got lazy.

Galsic Only one Ivalice track? One?? huh.gif How lame is that tongue.gif . Also, I'm unfamiliar with almost half of those tracks. I should really get to listening...

I tried. I think I nominated two or three FFT tracks.

I really like Hitoshi Sakimoto's music.

Thing is, it's also often a bit atmospheric. Rich, but atmospheric, and while it's very evocative, it doesn't as often have the simple-and-strong melody that, say, Uematsu is used used to using, even if his tracks are a little less smooth-sounding.

Case in point, I really enjoyed the anime series The Tower of Druaga, for which Sakimoto wrote the soundtrack, but I found it difficult to remember any particular track aside from one characteristically "curious" track representing the comedic interactions of the lazy-but-talented nobleman mage Melt and his surprisingly competent, strong, and level-headed servant Coopa.
SherickComment 10: 2017-10-20 17:30
Sherick I nominated the Archades theme from FFXII. Lots of excellent music in that game but as GMH mentioned it's hard to come up with memorable tracks compared to the rest of the series. Of course I was really surprised to see so many XV tracks nominated for the same reason...
For the record, the Phon Coast, Lowtown, Paramina Rift, and Salikawood themes are great listening as well.

DragonKnight Zero I was so certain my FFT pick was popular enough and I even placed it in my top spot; it didn't make the cut. Boo, was proven wrong.

Picking winners to me is just a matter of determining what the voters will gravitate towards. I chose 4 out of 5 within 10 minutes. Had a dilemma between 3-4 choices for the 5th slot but metagamed a bit and one of them stood out more. Though there's just as much of a chance that I'm completely out of touch with what FF fandom likes and none of my picks make the top 5; will see when it's over. May end up participating very little (if at all) in the voting portion as the temptation to metagame the voting is strong.

Which FFT track did you nominate? I nominated Trisection (because it's rather popular amongst CoNners from my experience), Apoplexy (because it's just one of my downright faves), and Mission Complete (yes, that fanfare, which I really like to play after battles finish in D&D games). I wish I could nominate an entire slate of FFT (and FFTA) tracks.

Also I suddenly realized today that I'd ENTIRELY forgotten about "Dear Friends" from FFV. It should have gotten a nomination spot...It's really embarrassing that I forgot that because I like it so much...

Anyway, only eight of my nominations made it in -- specifically my #1, #2, #3, #5, #6, #8, #9, and #16.
