As a fun side project, Ian has compiled modern Spotify playlists inspired by each of the investigators in Arkham Horror: The Card Game. Each playlist consists of ten songs. These aren’t necessarily meant to serve as background music while playing but more like a musical interpretation of what each character is about and what drives and haunts them. Enjoy!
