This is a GPO piece I wrote a little while ago, inspired by an open-source MMORPG under development (the five-note oboe motif is a variation on the opening phrase from the game's splash screen music). I would have called it "March of the Dwarfs", but obviously that name was already taken; Stonebreakers are one of the two Dwarfish races in the game. The piece tells a story about the Stonebreakers' arrival and first experiences in the world of the game.
I've bounced back and forth between liking this piece and hating it. Right now I'm in the "liking it" phase, so I figured I'd post it and ask for some commentary.
