Kent, dialogue/questions will work where basically an npc asks a question and 
you can select from a list (with mouse or the up/down keys). There will be 
branching dialogue so questions may have a a tree of options potentially. Some 
answers will simply prompt a nod from the fortuneteller and another question 
unrelated to the first.  Like oldschool adventure games.

 Yes, sorry I meant temple not tent.  The traps could be like spike traps you'd 
have to move at a certain pace to avoid (like in contra) or darts when you step 
on something.  There could also be some push traps and maybe doors you have to 
talk to and depending on your answer the door opens and leads to a different 
part.  

The boss is in an empty chamber yes.

I think that covers everything, lemme know if you need models for any of it and 
which models you'll need.

 I have a questions about the temple then. What kind of traps will there be?
Will there be enemies to fight? What kind of puzzles did you have in mind?
Are they going to be pushing block puzzles or other standard in game tasks
like finding your way out the room or will it be more like a separate mini
game that pops up needs to be solved to progress?

You said the tent would have lots of traps, did you mean the temple or will
the tent also have traps?

I am going to be making the dialogue section of the game. Basically, I need
more details of how you would like this to work. Don't worry about it from a
technical stand point. I need to know stuff like what kind of questions the
old man and the fortune teller will ask. I would like to know how you would
like the choices to impact the player. For example when the player is
talking to the old man about what he looks like how will this affect the
player.

Is The Beast an empty chamber with only the boss in it?

That's it for now. I'll see what I can do about a gate and star field.
