I kind of want to roll with a dark Legend of Zelda idea I've been stuck with for a while. The general gist of it is as follows: -- After eons of repeating the 'Ganon loses, Link wins' cycle as set in motion by the goddesses, things finally took a new turn. Rather then banish Ganon's spirit, the Hero (Link) of that 'legend' killed the dark king and finally broke the balance between the Hero, the Goddess Hylia, and the Demon King. As a result, Hyrule was ushered into a new and highly devastating war; a war against the Hero of Legend himself (who, after being corrupted by the Triforce of Power, murdered the current incarnation of the Goddess and took the Triforce of Wisdom). The conflict devastated Hyrule and destroyed nearly all life... But, out of nowhere, a being emerged from the ashes and struck down the corrupted Hero. With the Triforce, the mysterious figure rebuilt the land of Hyrule, salvaging what was left of the world to create a new realm (we can choose to rename it or keep it as Hyrule). But, you're probably wondering who this figure was. Who could be so powerful as to strike down a nearly immortal God; a former hero, still embued with the Goddesses praise? Majora Having been reborn centuries after his death in Termina (since he's technically a god in his own right), Majora's current incarnation is actually a 'good guy' (believe it or not). He saved the denizens of Hyrule for no other reason then 'it was the right thing to do'. The Golden Goddesses had seemingly abandoned Hyrule during the war (or perhaps encouraged the corrupted Hero's apocalyptic actions?), so the people put their faith in Majora. Believing that Hyrule would never be at peace if the 'Trinity of Legend' were to be reincarnated, Majora started a witch-hunt. Anyone with a bloodline that dated back to the Trinity (Hylian Royals, Gureudo men and women, and various Human farmers/Kokiri people) were slaughtered. If anyone was suspected of being an incarnate, they were killed (even if they were newly born). Think of how Salem functioned during the Witch Trials. Now increase the number of 'witches' found in a day by a couple thousand. Now imagine this goes on for a couple hundred years... That's the extent of how far Majora went to 'preserve his home'. Now, nearly a millennia after the 'Witch Hunts' ended, our story begins. The legends of old have long since been lost to the mists of time. Nobody can recall knowledge of the Hero, the Goddess Hylia, or even Demise. Seemingly, the land is at peace... But it's not a secret that everyone fears Majora above all. Even having destroyed the Triforce so no one, immortal or otherwise, could seek its terrible power. But, unbeknownst to Majora (who now suspects nothing), the light of the Goddess Hylia has shined upon the land of darkness formally known as Hyrule. Majora's intentions to save the land might have been noble, but his psyche is a ticking time bomb. Sooner or later, the demon inside him will return and the world will finally see its end of days. Without the power of the Triforce there to stop him, the land will eventually crumble into nothingness. Nobody will be able to save it, not even the Golden Goddesses, should they return. And so, the goddess places her faith upon a young group of would-be heroes, bestowing each of them with a gift from the ancient world which will allow them to combat the evil before it can arrive. But, Majora's servants are everywhere. Should they spot signs of the Hero's return, they will stop at nothing until they have destroyed what little resistance the Goddess Hylia is willing to put up. -- So basically we'd be playing a new group of 'heroes' chosen by Hylia to save the world before Majora goes insane and pulls the whole 'drop the Moon' thing again. Like my older Zelda RP here, each of our characters will recieve two items from the 'Ancient Hyrule': a Weapon (ex. the Master Sword, Fire/Ice Rod, Goddess Bow, Magic Boomerang/Gale Boomerang, etc.) and an Artifact (ex. Ocarina of Time, Book of Mudora, Deku/Goron/Zora Mask, Rod of Seasons/Harp of Ages, etc.) Some artifacts/weapons come with a package deal (ex. the Master Sword comes with either the Hylian Shield or the Mirror Shield) and some items can be merged into one(ex. the various 'Rod' weapons can be combined into a singular magic wand. Fire, Ice, Sand, Wind, Water, just not control over the Seasons). Since this is a whole new Hyrule with a new setting, I'm thinking the technology would be a bit more advanced. It's still a medieval-fantasy world, mind you, but maybe with some advanced tech thrown in there like Trains or even a bit it steam-punk stuff like Airships/tinker-made gadgets. Anyways if you're interested just post below (I'm looking for about 4-5 people for this, just to keep it fairly small and organized since it's a big narrative). Also, if you want a specific item/artifact reservation, include that in your post. Or, if you're interested and want to throw in your two-cents about the idea then go ahead! I'll do my best to answer any potential questions/address any comments you might have about this and use them to enhance the experience for us all ^^ To start, I'm going to reserve the Master Sword (I'll acquire it later on/in a deported state so it's fair) with the Hylian Shield as my 'Weapon', and my 'Artifact' will be the Ocarina of Time.
