When I made this song, I was imagining a group of mercenaries escorting a merchant and his caravan through a dense forest. They're bored and have been walking for some time, and they start telling each other stories and jokes to pass the time while walking.
This is also the first time I've used Key Switching effectively :P
The percussions I used are from a set of chinese drum samples I have. I didn't intend to give the song the "hihat" drums, but when I did, I decided to keep it as it gave the song a bit more upbeat atmosphere. And judging by your comments, it was a wise choice to keep them :P
I'll be posting two other songs I made for the same game, "Training" and "Quelled". Feel free to take a listen, and please give me your comments!
