Behemoth Mountain - Coggle Diagram
After looping a message will appear saying "You feel the world shift beneath your feet" or "The sands of time have changed"
After this the player may be hunted by a special behemoth boss, it will track them through levels and appear if the player has spend too long in one area.
This is the way the mountain is getting back at you. It knows what you have done and you will not get the chance to do it again.
Looping occurs when a celestial being has been killed. In this case The World Behemoth is protected by the behemoths of the North, East, South and West. After killing these 4 the Behemoth will wake and speak with you when you next reach it, saying "I know what you have done, I sense every change, come then let me see your strength."
The World Behemoth is a celestial being which traverses the galaxy to bring new life.
Upon it's back it grows a mountain which houses a variety of creatures. Once this mountain is ready it must be severed from the Behemoth's back so that new life may bloom.
In this story the mountain harbours a variety of humanoid races as well as many species of creatures known as behemoths. These 2 sides do not live in harmony, since there creation they have been separated. The behemoths reside within the mountains darkest levels and the other rest along the outside out the mountain.
If this mountain is not severed an becomes too big for the World Behemoth, it and its inhabitants will die.
The merchants throughout the game come in a few different styles but they're all there for the same cause.
Merchants will spawn randomly over the map and one has like a 40% chance of spawning on each level.
Merchants use adventures of the mountains to test their craft. They can be used for enchantments, new weapons and a safe space for the player.
Not all of the merchants are what they seem. The Behemoths of the mountain vary in intelligence and may impersonate them.
Crazed Old Man
The old man in this game is a character used to tell the player lore.
They were previously a knight of quite a high remark and was tasked with severing the mountain.
The Knight entered the mountain and instead was motivated to open the mountains heart and kill the world behemoth.
After "Looping" the Knight exited the mountain to find that he had travelled back in time, he had never even entered the mountain.
After telling people of what happened the Knight was stripped of his reputation. He spent a long time alone and supposedly went mad.
Many people forgot about him and he just became the crazy old man who lived by himself.
For this project, I want to create a short animatic which will give the brief overview of the games story. In this Animatic I want to include a voice of a fairly old person, who sounds like she is telling a bed time story to a young child.
This Parental Figure will likely appear in some form in the game before the player makes their way to the mountain.
As the player, you have recently had the opportunity to scale the mountain and attempt to sever the mountain. Ever person must attempt to survive the mountain once in their life, if they die then that it just another loss to the mountain.
You have a large array of professions under your belt, you can focus to be any class you wish, to name a few, Knight, Mage, Rogue, Summoner, Handler.
