Rhythm Encounter 21 – Theme Park

We’ve got plenty of characters around RPGFan, but none of us have our own theme music (yet). Fortunately, the folks in our games sure do, so we got together to listen to some of our favorites in the latest and I dare say greatest episode of Rhythm Encounter! Join us as we discuss some of our favorite character themes from RPGs both well-known and not-so-well-known. Featuring spiky-haired kids with Disney characters for friends (I’m sure you all know who picked that one), cursed princesses who hide in the shadows, one-eyed pirates piloting giant mechs, and plenty of other interesting personalities. Also, delight in some excellent new music, including tracks from the recently released Terra Battle and the eagerly anticipated Final Fantasy XV!

Note: We had to re-number our episodes several years after publishing. This was originally Episode 18, as reflected in the audio. Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything!

Featuring: Stephen Meyerink, Caitlin Argyros, Mike Salbato

Stephen used to hang out here, but at some point he was either slain by Rob or disappeared after six hundred straight hours of chanting "I'm really feeling it!" while playing Smash Ultimate. (But seriously, Stephen ran RPGFan Music for a portion of his six years here, and launched our music podcast, Rhythm Encounter.)
