Music from the computer game modification Counterstrike at Quel’Thalas.

This score is expected to be used as a visual reference as accompaniment to the mp3 recording above, specifically because the recording uses many percussion instruments and effects that do not render correctly through MIDI.

Nothing in troll society is ever given freely. Members of tribes must earn everything they possess, even including the honour of attaining their own name. Ascension through troll society is based on the ability to pass trials set by the wise ones, the spiritually-attuned witch doctors, who assess candidates for their levels of cunning and savagery. This is reflected back to the ritual of First Blood, whereby any forest troll wishing to be considered anything more than a slave must spill the blood of an elf, the hated invaders who usurped the sacred lands. It is therefore only the most cunning and impressive warrior who is able to convince the ever-vying tribes to unite under a single banner, a feat few can lay claim to. The most popular example in recent history is that of Zul'jin, who dared form an alliance with the invading orcish Horde in the second war, to protect his race from the armies of the human and elven alliance. But in the time following the War of Chaos, the forest trolls have seen little reason to band together to fight a common foe with any serious resolve. But that may now be about to change, with the hated elven enemies battered and scattered by the unexpected undead assault, and with the will of a troll warrior with ambition to drive the elves to annihilation, and to reclaim the lands that were unfairly taken.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
