Embark on a journey with us overseas, as the Battle Bards sail to the lands of Lineage 2.  It's a plus-sized soundtrack with surprisingly good music, and we're all about bringing you the best of the best.  Except for the one track that Syl held back for show 13 because she wanted to spite Syp.  Not that Syp is bitter.  It's a musical journey of cymbals, sunsets, and unicorn dreams.  But what else would you expect from this show?

Everyone knows that the Battle Bards are a little odd.  That's a fact.  So it shouldn't come as a shock to discover that they're also into MMO music that's a little... off the beaten path.  Today's episode is all about the strange and unusual themes that don't quite fit in elsewhere -- but they're in good company together!
