Free background music for your games

I happened to stumble upon this site when looking for new background musics for my rpg sessions; it's really worth checking!

From denial to Savage Worlds (Via 4E)

I wasn't immediately converted to Savage Worlds after finding it. I first disliked the idea of the system; As I've written a lot of SW materials, I thought of telling how I got into the game after trying several other ones, including trying to create my own rpg rules.

There's a few words I'd like to share with you about using 3d-terrain and/or maps/tiles - what to use and why, and share my experiences about some maps and tiles I've used.

I've also added a few review-ish about tiles/terrains on this post.
