This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Civ4 wina first Grammy for videogame music
« on: February 15, 2011, 11:57:04 AM »
Baba Yetu, the opening theme from Civilization 4 (2005), won a Grammy last Sunday. This is the first time a videogame song wins this award.

Composer Christopher Tin included it in Calling All Dawns, his debut solo album. In addition to Baba Yetu's award for "Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists," the album went on to win "Best Classical Crossover Album."
"I give the gift of endless imagination."
~~Gary Gygax (1938 - 2008)
