    "We now officially have music! Brennan Anderson ( has agreed to compose an original score for Lords of Uberdark -- and the first track (Overlands Day) is ready for action! Give it a listen (audio player is below)... The in-game music system is also underway, and should allow us to smoothly transition from one theme to another depending on the circumstances...
