Choicest VGM - VGM #158 - Quest for Glory III - Eastern Fricana Savanna

Composed by: Rudy Helm

This piece plays when the Hero ventures east from the Liontaur city of Tarna towards the Simbani camp, the Simbani being a people obviously modelled off the Maasai people of East Africa. Before you arrive there you'll have to cross what is known as the East African Savannah - er, I mean the "East Fricana Savanna". The music is really epic and I think that's why it sticks in my mind to this day - probably the most epic main city departure music you'll ever hear in a Quest for Glory game, but to be fair, it's not like Quest for Glory 1, Quest for Glory 2 or Quest for Glory 4 had much in terms of wilderness music. I especially like it when the harmonising kicks in around 1:06.

Thanks to Sierra On-Line and Quest Studios for providing these memorable tracks.
