[ROYALTY AND NOBLE BLOOD] is a writing mix about feudal dynasties, bad blood, and royal turmoil. This playlist contains 15 of my favorite tracks for writing in a feudal/medieval setting. Unlike my other mixes, though, this one evolves like a story— at first it is calm, a new day, and little by little the mood heads into darker places. Threats of war. A nimble hand poisons a cup of wine. Moonlight reflected on the point of a dagger. Watch your back, your Majesty…
Your heir is plotting against you.
Looking for more writing playlists? Check out my other mixes:
- [WRITING IN THE DARK] Unobtrusive & relaxing!
- [WRITING ABOUT LOVE] Welcome to Feels City, population: You.
- [WRITING & FIGHTING!] Round One, Fight!
- [WRITING ABOUT HORROR] Don’t look, it’s right behind you!
