Obe’s Jukebox #21 – Diablo II – Rogue Encampment


Stay a while, and listen

The world of Sanctuary has been plunged into darkness. The Greater Evils, Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal, walk the mortal realm, blackening the earth and razing civilizations in a quest for power. Enter you, lowly traveler with the blessing of being the protagonist. As you walk into the dingy and ragtag Rogue Encampment a sense of dread overtakes you, for the minions of evil lurk in the darkness slowly encroaching around you.

Diablo fucking II, man.

Track Name: Rogue

Game: Diablo II and Diablo II: Lords of Destruction

System: PC

Composer: Matt Uelmen

This isn’t music for a desolate town later on, no; instead of a cheerful tune for a starting town, Blizzard chose this tense piece of music.In my opinion, the Rogue Encampment theme does an extremely good job on setting the entire tone of Diablo II. You, the hero, have to fight off endless hordes of demons and fiends to gain the power to challenge the likes of the Great and Lesser Evils. Everything’s dark, spooky, borderline hopeless, and filled with monsters, so here’s your starting weapon. Go save the world.

For those unlucky enough to have never played Diablo II, you have truly missed out on one of the best PC games of all time. Randomly generated dungeon crawling doesn’t get much better than Diablo II, and nothing’s more satisfying than getting an ungodly loot drop, then using your new skills and abilities to shred through bosses and unique mobs. With builds and playstyles only limited to your imagination. Diablo II has ridiculous replayability, and hearing this song only makes me want to start a new file and get to smiting evil all over again.
