Per a public post on Stephen Clarke-Wilsson's Facebook page, the reference to the "music" has a personal backstory. Not sure if this should be included in the Trivia section somehow, but I wanted to preserve it here just in case an editor felt like doing something with it:
- Stephen Clarke-Willson, 8/17/2012
- The backstory is that I'd worked with Jeremy Soule on a previous project and was familiar with his music. Just before one of the Guild Wars beta events, he dropped "Ashford Abbey" on us and I put it straight into the game. Well, something had happened, because the quality of the piece was better than anything I had heard from him over the years. I think he had upgraded his studio to all fiber-optics and higher rate samplers. Anyway, I'll always remember that piece, and the excitement of that Beta Weekend.
