Rise of Legends: Skawennati’s Notes

March 16th, 2009

Play: Tutorial

This is where the player learns how to use his weapons.

VOICE OVER: How to use the bow & arrow. Example: “Press A to use the bow & arrow.”

As you walk along, you come to a body of water. There is a canoe on the shore. You get into the canoe [and start floating]. The evil villager from the Flying Head legend rises out of the water. Two Baby Flying Heads are attached to him [with leather ropes. Or maybe hair.] They are attacking you [how?]. You shoot them with your bow.

VOICE OVER: How to use the knife. Example: “Press B to use the knife.” You can stab and slash.

You got the Baby Heads, but now the Evil Villager is after you. He attacks you by slashing at you with his long nails. You have to slash back at him with your knife.

The Flying Head has many baby heads attached to it, or swarming around it, or following it [to be decided]. The Baby Heads can be killed with bow & arrow. Flying Head dies when you throw enough hot coals into his mouth. You can only throw the coals into his open mouth. He opens his mouth to scream (when a Baby Head is killed and/or as an attack). The scream pushes you backward.

Hi all,

Here are the notes I took on Sunday and Monday. They are a little thin in places. Tehoniahtathe, maybe you can look it over and fill in the Cut Scenes and Voice Overs. Where you see [square brackets] were stuff I added in while typing up these notes.

Rise of the Legends: Legends of Fear

CUT SCENE: Introduction

You, a hunter, come upon a village on fire. A dying woman tells you that the Flying Head has attached this village, and he his headed for yours. [She tells you that she has fought him before, and along the way she will guide you to fight him again.] Look for the medicine lacrosse stick, you will need it to defeat the Flying Head. She warns you to stay on the path (alludes to giant). [Her dying words are:] “ Remember: Compassion is the ultimate weapon.”
