Right-click text[edit]

The time has come for you to challenge the elders for leadership. Like other young prospects of the tribe you must pass through three tests. The first test is simple, kill an Ancient Behemoth. For three generations the Ancient Behemoth Razor Claw has resisted attempts to kill it off, now it is your time to make the attempt. Complete this simple task to continue with the festival of life.

Prologue[edit]

H3ABfl1.png

Kilgor Kilgor : Alongside my father I have killed Behemoth before, but never an Ancient Behemoth. To contest the throne, I must slay one of these fearsome beasts. I relish the encounter. After I have slain this one, I will know how to subdue them. Then I will employ them in my bloody ascension to kingship.

Scenario[edit]

Map description[edit]

The task of killing Razor Claw has been given to you. Prove yourself and defeat the Ancient Behemoth in three months or lose your chance at becoming King. If Kilgor is lost then his chance to become king ends also. Kilgor is limited to twelfth level.

Timed events[edit]

Day 1 - Day 1 event.
The first test begins. Razor Claw has been terrorizing this territory for generations; his reign is about to come to an end. It will be a challenge just reaching him before time runs out and you are eliminated from the Festival of Life, but you are confident of victory over the beast.
Day 8 - Scout report 1.
Advanced scouts report that they found three ways past the mountains, one guarded by Cyclops, one by Rocs and the other guarded by Ogres. They did not check the inland sea, but rumors of a whirlpool abound.
Day 14 - Razor-Claws roar. (every 14 days)
The vicious roar of Razor Claw tears through the countryside like flesh being torn from bone.

Spirits of the behemoth's victims.
It is said that the spirits of Razor Claw's past victims still roam his lair.

68, 3, 0 The stench of Razor Claw (worse then your average Behemoth stench) wafts up from the depths. You also can hear other Behemoths below, perhaps his family (which is rather large from rumors) has decided to join him in his cave. It does not matter, they will all fall to your sword. Unconsciously a shiver runs down your spine as you move toward the entrance..
