What's on your mind?
I've found some information about the game's world and backstory here and I'm curious as to where you got it.
I've owned a copy of Brutal Legend ever since it came out and have played it many times. But in all these years I've never known what Lionwhyte and the Coil were getting out of the mines or Ophelia named the Drowning Doom after what happened to her parents until today.
So how is it you know? Was it mentioned in the art book? In some other official text? Or did I just miss something in the game? Because I'd hate to think you are just making it up.
By the way, I love this game and it's lore but, I think you'll agree, it's delivery of backstory and world building could have been much better.
I will tell you were the solo is:
Somewhere here is in Ophelia's zone😸🐈

I know, many many years ago we played this game and I was pretty convinced that the metal world was another strange world, I mean, it was clear for me that it was another world where we go when we die, in case of Eddie Riggs, because he was "called" by Ormagöden.
I'm playing the game again on Xbox360 for the achievements, by the way, I got the viral achievement and the viral trophy on PS3 if anyone needs help, and I was shocked because at the very beginning we can hear Lars, the resistance leader, and his sister, talking about Ormagöden as the "Destryoer of the Ancient World". So, my theory is this:
When Eddie Riggs died and awoke Ormagöden, this was still the same world, then, Ormagöden literatelly killed almost the entire world as we know it and the METAL ERA began, including the fact that people survived somehow and, for some reason, begin to tell stories. One prophecy said that Eddie Riggs will come and save the world. So, maybe one thousand years had passed when we play as Eddie Riggs.What do you think?
Technically, it should be possible. Here's my idea:
1) Player character. Instead of Eddie, the player gets to choose one of the non-hero human npcs:
Possibly Kabbage Boy band-members.
I figure these should be the most fitting because they can use the same animations as Eddie (+ the would have the ability to manipulate objects without looking too wonky) or have their own, and have basic customization options.
2) Customization. Once the character model is selected, the player would get the option to customize it by choosing:
Skin\hair\eyes\clothes colours (when applicable);
Hairstyle - for example Headbangers should have standard or glam options; Grave Diggers have several options (messy, downed mohawk, etc.);
Additional clothes - for instance Headbangers should be able to choose a beanie, a helmet, a bandana, a pink cowboy hat, etc., a vest or t-shirt, and so on (for Headbangers, Razor Girls, Thunderhogs, and Roadies, the Hair Metal Militia customization options should be available).
3) Gear. Once the character's model and appearance are selected, the player should have the option to select their weapon and instrument. I think the following would do (note that ideally, they should not have buffs, but I suppose it would be possible to make buffs work as a kind of purchasable enchantment):
The Separator (Eddie's axe);
All vanilla options for the axe (electric, sharp, bloody, etc.)(aesthetic only);
Razor Girls' shotgun (may or may not shoot);
One of Ophelia's blades;
Grave Digger's shovel;
Punishing Party's spear;
Simple drum stick (possibly);
The Hunter's weapon;
Meat (as seen in some cutscenes)(more of a joke weapon).
Clementine (Eddie's guitar);
All vanilla "strings" for Clementine (Brawlers, High Voltage, etc.)(likewise, purely aesthetic; when applicable);
Hydra (Doviculus' guitar);
Six-Stringed Sorrow (Drowned Ophelia's guitar).
4) Vehicle. One is needed to cover the distance, of course. The player gets a vehicle-spawn solo at game-start, but the vehicle should be chosen during character customization. Available should be most human vehicles.
The Deuce (Eddie's car);
Hearse (Drowned Ophelia's car);
Chariot (Doviculus' car);
Thunderhog trike (minus Thunderhog);
Glamhog trike (minus Glamhog);
Fire Baron bike (minus Fire Baron);
Squealer (Fletus' car, minus Fletus);
Lightning Rod vehicle (possibly);
Mine cart (like the ones seen in and around Lionwhyte's mine).
5) Quests. Seeing as how playing through the original questline as anyone but Eddie would not make sense, it would obviously have to be removed. Hence why I said 'sandbox'. Instead, the player should have radiant quests, similar to those the Hunter gives, but with more variety.
Hunt - kill x number of whatever beasts;
Berserk - kill x number of whatever enemy units that spawn in your immediate vicinity until the time runs out (think Rampage missions in GTA)(all spawning units in a quest are the same - for example parties of 4-6 Druids, or Hairbangers, or Grave Diggers, you get the idea);
Race - self-explanatory: vanilla racing but should be able to have opponents other than Fletus (any vehicle npc in fact), and\ or up to four opponents;
Ambush - vanilla ambush mission;
Solo competition - play random solos against another npc. Whoever plays all the solos better (or perfectly) wins. (could be complicated to implement though);
Mounted race - same as vanilla racing, but player has to first catch a specific type of animal and use them as a vehicle (could be complicated to implement);
Recover strings - go to the metal spiders' lair and kill x number of spiders;
Get amps - go to the Screaming Wall and help the Roadies bring amps (basically repeating the vanilla quest 'Pilgrimage of Screams'.
Anything else, if possible.
And the quest-givers should spawn randomly in random places, or in set places but once in a few in-game days, etc. As reward, they give you Tribute points.
6) Shop. Driving inside Forges doesn't make sense for characters other than Eddie, so instead, the player should have some alternate way to activate them, or maybe they should have a dedicated merchant npc? Purchasables should be:
Instrument (replaces the current one);
Weapon (replaces the current one);
Vehicle (replaces the current one);
Character customization options (clothing skins, hairstyles, clothes - see point #1);
Weapon buff (possibly) - should act as the axe/ guitar improvements in vanilla, but instead work with any of the weapons/ instruments. It's a matter of adding the effect and shader (or just the effect if it's too much of a hassle to add the electric shader to Lita's polearm, for example).
7) Other stuff. Surely, if anyone is able to implement even a fraction of what's listed here, other stuff's bound to appear eventually. The sky's the limit. And while I'd really love to see this become reality, I fear that it won't, since it hasn't so far. Regardless, a man can dream.
What do you think?
Since the solo pages (for example Call of the Wild) are so poor and there's nothing really that can be added to I'm thinking about merging each factions solos into a faction specific page for example "Ironheade Solos" and "Drowning Doom solos" and wanted any thoughts on a better way to do it, or if I should expand the Guitar Solos page itself to have more information on each specific solo as opposed to just being a list.
it's always interesting to see what faction others enjoy and i'm just curious
(it's also to see how many people still come to this wiki givin it's an old game)

Has anyone else found this? And if so, who is it and why did the developer put it in? Can’t find anything online related to it.
This has probably been brought up by someone before, but I just can't help but wonder - who were their parents? The whole backstory is a bit "forget about it" on the matter. We know that Riggnarok started the first human rebellion against the demons, he taught people to make clothes, weapons, etc. He had that sword. Then, once the Sea of Black Tears was open, all humans, save for him, got seduced, and drank from it, thus the rebellion ended. So Riggnarok pretended to be a slave to get close to, and to murder Emperor (Empress?) Succoria, when she traveled to the future, but instead, the got involved with each-other, and made Eddy. Ok. Then we learn that Ophelia's parents gave Riggnarok's sword to Lars saying that it belonged to him - where did they get it? Why him? How did they even give it to him if they were supposed to be black-tear zombies? At the same time, Lita seems highly distrustful only of Ophelia, because her parents were tear-drinkers, and yet, none of the other human characters get the same treatment from her, not even she and Lars. But we already know that of all the humans in the first rebellion, only Riggnarok resisted the call of the Sea of Black Tears, so either Riggnarok was her and Lars' father also, or Riggnarok wasn't the only one to resist the Sea, but the only one to survive the human civil war. Also, if the Sea somehow released the original Black Tear rebels (Why? How?), how did they manage to keep Riggnarok's sword to give to Lars, if they were enslaved by the demons?

Can you do anything after the main story line? or should I just go to the next game. Shame though, I loved Brutal Legend and would've loved to see a sequel, or something like it. But anyways, can someone help?

The players summon their respective vehicle, and another player or one of the two or more players race to a set point wich the subject may vary, but I and Rikusorakairiown set the point to be the stage.
The players summon their respective vehicle and go to the map Feeding Area, they must procede to race around the Lamprey and the first one to get their vehicle destroyed or is killed loses the last man standing in case of 3+ people. (This requires more luck than skill since the Lamprey is undodgeable).
The players summon a unit/s of any kind to fight the other unit/s in case of 3+ players each player may choose 1 unit to represent them
Hide and Seek
One player must give all the others time to count, wend they all say ready, the counter (person who counts) must find them and wend he does, they must gather in a certain point. The counter can not fly, only use his vehicle and walk & the hiding players musn´t hide in places wich are only reached by flight, once you find a player you must physically atack him.
Players may fill all the load and send their units to the battlefield in a rather epic display of metal clashing.
Bleeding Death Destruction
Quality vs Quantity
Use the best unit of a certain faction (ex: BD, Rock Crusher, Tree Back ) and the other player/s make a army like 40 load or as close as he/she can to it, then make them all meet in a certain spot and UNLEASH THE AWESOMENESS.
All Road Racing
Go to a map with some mountains or hills, summon your car on top of them and set a waypoint then race to that point wich will result in awesome jumps.
2-8 Arrange a meeting, everyone appears at the spot, start fighting no units just your powers! (Works best with 8 people)
(More may be added as we find more).

I'm not sure if there's a page on this wiki with a collection of Brutal Legend links, but I'm an admin over at the Metalocalypse Wiki and I'm posting here to see if you guys would be interested in trading links with us. All this means is that we would list this wiki in our "Affiliates and Friends" section, the reason for this is because of that cool Dethklok/Brutal Legend promo that was made for one of Dethklok's tours, also because this is a well written wiki.

Here is some ideas for sequal.
IronHead finding the Temple Highway restored sends Eddie and Ophelia to investigate. When the get to the top of the mountain of bones to the temple of ormagoden they are attacked by a man-like creature with chrome skin and four arms weilding a claymore and a dual-neck guitar. the creature turns out to be the son of ormagoden. Needless to say he's a little pissed off that eddie broke his father's temple.
I figure this part could work like the tutorial of the first game. where you have to fight him until he stops you with a cutsene. in which he finds something familiar and that Eddie has proven himself a honorable warrior so he gives his name Axel oresong and they become allys.
New Avatar- can be played in multiplayer.
Axel Oresong: The son of Ormagoden was created when Ormagoden's Death Flame mingled with Aetulia's Voice giving birth to a demigod of most righteous metal. He was raised by his mother until her Despair lead to her death. Then he was taken in by the Titans. They taught him many things how to survive, how to fignt, and most importanly how to play Metal. So that when he reached manhood he forged twin claymores from his father's metal and carved a guitar from a branch of Madronal his mother's tree. He named his swords Ormagoden's Fangs and dual-neck guitar Aetulia's Song. When the Titans left for a higher plane they left their servants the demons in his care but he too felt abadonded just as much as his charges and they bonded in their greif. As time Passed they devised ways to find the Titans creating Ormagoden's crest. When the Demons found a single toenail of a Titan, Axel used the last of his power to recreate them. Instead they made Men and Axel fell into a thousand year sleep while the demons fell into a terrible rage at the men they made. when the men escaped their talons the demons formed the Tainted Coil and the most powerful of them became the emperor. When the new emperor turnded his eye apone the sleeping demi-god. The Emperor knew that he would be a usefull ally when he awoke. So the Emperor sent his most trusted subjects to carry Axel up the death pile of their anceint ansestors to his father's temple. Where they placed him on his father's stone back and wainted there till he awoke. Centures latter Axel twitched once in his sleep when a newly crowned Emperor came to the Temple to see the dreaming legend. Decades latter Axel Stired in sleep when the Temple filled with chants, screams, Roars, and Moans. Years latter Axel slowly grow alert when earth shattering music turned the Temples walls to ruins. A year latter when he was fully awake he found the temple ransacked and the sacred road in ruin. possible titles- Earth Searer, Titan Brother, Son of Ormagoden.
Thunder Drum/ Iron Drum: is pretty much a dwarf driving a vehicle thats part hotrod part drumset with a gong in the shape of a giant sheild on the back. playing it with forge hammers. it makes rows of earth quakes to attack the enemy.
Punks: the punks have demon blood coursing in there veins which acounts for their hot headness and urge to break their guitars over anything that moves. this unit is a bezerker and once in battle will no longer take orders from you until there are no more enemy units near them.
Leader- Johnny Romone
Lead singer- a unit that acts as a buffer for other units as well as a attacker. high attack but low defense and is useless without other units. Their can only be one.
Master Exploder/RockStar/MetalSinger: can make enemy units heads explode with the sound of his voice.
HeadStrong/?: turns units skin into chrome increasing defense while lowering attack and speed.
The Remnants of the Drowning Doom where dying out until a man named Mr.Crowley came to them and showed them a leak to the sea of black tear. with renewed power and Mr. Crowley as their leader the drowning doom begins to waite and Evolve.
Crowley-Warlock: Crowley is from a land far across the Great Highway where he was a sourcerer of awsome might. Unforchantly when trying out a new spell he teleported above the Sea of Black Tears and was pulled into its water. Now with the power of the Black Tears he used his new Black Magic he tunneled his way out unleashing its water creating the River of Despair. But as time passes the black tears have made another person one filled with insanity and rage a being who calls himself Warlock. Now a battle rages in his mind for control. Who will win kind Crowley or cruel Warlock? The land holds it's breath for the answer.
Blood Count/ Blood Baron: These vampires where made when teardrinkers in their madness drank from others of their ilke. Though that dosen't explain their love of frilly shirts. This units is a medic and suck the blood of the enemy through the air and use it to heal allies. However they can't kill enemies through blood drain but their claws can. Levitates a foot above the ground so isn't affected by ground base attacks. Double team: Crowley turns into black tears and the vampire blood drains him changing the aristocrat into a Savage Blood starved man-bat.
Zombies: the newly risen may be brainless, slow, and rotting apart but make up for it with ability to infect the enemy.
Banshee: This fair maiden use to have a voice that could make the sky's cry with happiness. Now it cries in horror at her shreiks. Her shreik cause others to rot.
Ungreatfull Dead/?: turns units into skelenton increasing attack and speed but lowering health.
