    RUSH Clockwork Angels tour

    Hey friends,

    This past weekend I attended Rush's Clockwork Angels tour in the Portland metro area. They are, without question, my favorite band since the late 80's to early 90's. I've had the pleasure to see them at least 6 or 7 times over the past two decades and have a nice collection of T-shirts as a result. They've got a back-up strings ensemble attending them on this tour and you can still expect great lasers, pyrotechnics, and their own brand of comedy via the premade movie clips they show throughout the concert. In all truth, I don't have quite the affinity for some of the 'newer' songs from their past few albums (this new one is my least favorite thus far, sad to admit), but I wouldn't pass a chance to see them live all the same.

    Being the steadfast gamer, I have blended my love for both Rush and RPGing by attributing some songs to various characters (PCs and NPCs alike) as well as some of the Oerth Powers, and have thusly fashioned some song collections as background music. Here is what I have come up with so far:

    The Big Money: Zilchus
    Dreamline: Fharlanghn (maybe even Celestian)
    Bastille Day: Trithereon
    Marathon: Fharlanghn
    Territories: Rao
    Mystic Rhythms: Boccob or Istus
    Color of Right: Pholtus
    Bravado and Everyday Glory: Heironeous

    ...more forthcoming...

    Like you, I have a nostalgic fondness for Rush and have incorporated some of the songs you mentioned. I would add Early Distant Warning for Celestian or any Deity watching the folly of the PCs efforts. The lines

    But what am I to do?
    You sometimes drive me crazy
    But I worry about you

    I know it makes no difference
    To what you're going through
    But I see the tip of the iceberg
    And I worry about you...
    Always remind me of the Gods (and the DM for that matter) looking down at their children and shaking there heads at the decisions the PCs make. All the while knowing the PCs see only the tip of the full picture that is the iceburgLaughing
    and of Course am reminded via another Rush Song

    You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
    If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice
    You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
    I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose freewill

    Which my PCs often enforce........ FREEWILL...
