Legends and Heroes

February 12th, 2006 at 2:59 pm by The Missing Link

This was submitted to me by Atake. It was artfully done, and having personally worked with roleplaying groups before, those who have any penchant for acting or roleplaying should definitely take part.

[EDIT: I linked accidentally to the wrong user profile. It’s fixed now.]

When the world was fresh and young, and legends and their heroes were upheld as they should always be, a tale of a young lad was spreading rapidly.

The lad, a born hero – or so they say - lived his childhood in the safety of the woods. The children of these woods all had their own guardian fairy, but the fact that he hadn’t already suggested that he was different. As days passed, an evil grew and the hero’s fate would soon be decided. He was called by the forest guardian who granted him his own fairy. He collected the first items he needed to truly start his quest in the land he cherished so. The evil was still growing and a young maiden, whom the hero was told to meet, felt it also. She sent him further on his quest, told him that he needed a sword; a sword that would banish evil. But first he would need more strength and courage. The hero made more allies, but not everyone grew to like him.

The day he would return to the maiden he found her running from her home, chased by a dark man. Determined, the hero continued, to save not only the land from evil’s grasp but also the fair maiden. With the help of the wisdom he acquired he was able to retrieve the sword… However, he got sealed away for seven years.

After being awoken by the Sage of Light, he was explained that he would have been too young to wield the sword and conquer the evil that now ruled the land. The sage told him that, in order to save the land and the maiden, he needed to awaken five other sages who would accompany him and help him advance his quest. To get to the first sage he had to return to familiar grounds, back to the forest where he grew up. After saving the forest and awakening one of his old friends as a sage, he continued. He traveled over mountains, through and under water, braved the desert and traveled through time itself. He battled dragons, sorcerers and living corpses. All to awaken familiar allies from the past as the four remaining sages.

Now that all the sages had awakened, he returned to the maiden’s home, finding it completly altered and covered by an evil veil. The sages aided him with braving the tower to get to his enemy, who had been expecting to battle him. The battle was long and the hero was battered, but he rescued the maiden. However, the hate of the hero’s enemy was so strong that he managed to resurrect and demand a rematch. With the help of all the sages and the maiden, the hero once again rose victorious and they sealed away this evil once and for all.

Now that the quest to save the land had been completed, the hero had to travel back seven years in order to live life as it would’ve been without an evil ruler. To this day the hope remains that evil will never rule as it did during those years of darkness.

Legends are one thing to cherish during trying times, when bravery and courage are needed. But what if you yourself could be that hero; what if you could write your own legend and make your own history? Wouldn’t you grasp the chance to stand up against evil?

There is a chance to do so. Take up your weapon and skillfully battle for everything you believe in.

    RPG….is this thing just like role playing online or is it an acutual game, like Golden Sun and Final Fantasy?

    I think its like, you make your own zelda game, and then you live it. Right, TML? At least, you make the storyline.

    Pretty much roleplaying online a character, either of your own creation or one of the one of the main characters from the source material (the Zelda games in this case), using a certain theme (in this case, Zelda) and a moderator-created plot.

    A lot of Cosplayers do it in chat rooms, although I know of entire forums dedicated to such a hobby.

    at The malonxlink site the have a zelda rpg where u make your own charcters you can include link or not

    I’ve looked into this roleplaying stuff before. I dunno, I may give it a shot one day… theirs just a fine line between liking and loving a series and then being obsessed.

    Though, obsession isn’t always bad… ;)

    I couldn’t find anything on the site explaining exactly what is going on with it. Did I miss something, or can someone who does know possibly give out that information?

    Ugh! This is.. a bit confusing. I’ve added a How To Play guide for people who didn’t really get it, and there is a slight mistake there too.

    [TML: Fixed.]

    Oh, and some publicity would be welcome, other admins. XD We really need to expand as quick as possible! More players -> More fun!

    thats a good motto, im goin there right this moment! lol

    You know ive heard of Cosplay but I always thought it was only a Japanese thing, I didnt know it was also popular in America… ha for all I know its popular in the UK too.

    I had no idea that people liked to act out RPGs either, guess im showing how little I know, lol.

    BTW I was at a fan convention on Saturday and Sunday which did hold a Cosplay competition but I didnt get to see it. But I did meet Veronica Taylor who gave me a “FREE” Autograph, she is the voice of Ash in Pokemon, I also met the guy who played Goku in DragonBall Z (I can never remember his name) but unfortunately I wasnt able to get his Autograph as I had spent the last of my money getting autographs off Micheal Shanks who plays Dr Daniel Jackson and Thor in StarGate SG1 and Christopher Judge who plays Teal’c in the same show, which was cool.

    I also took part in a Kame-Hame-Ha competiton on stage but I failed miserably, lol.

    Well…there is another Zelda RPGing site, but I don’t think advertising is allowed. You can find a URL if you browse my own site…quite a few people have ran it in the past(including Lord-of-Shadow) and it has been around for over 2 years. We’ve had two attempts of people trying to rip it off (like, stealing the entire site and posts).

    Anyway, The Hyrulean Adventure (Nintendo Online interactive story) was one of the inspirations, and I really enjoyed participating in that 1995 event. I wish Nintendo didn’t trash that thing so easily.

    I’m wondering what you mean to say, exactly?
    And ripping off has happened to our last one (we’ve been around for a year now) as well… I’m a bit at loss why people want to do that.

    looks kool but ill have to make a goron hero if thats ok with the roleplaying…… is darmani takin lol

    A Zelda story where your the hero and have to do whatever you want in your journey.Lets see, I would be lazy for the first three chapters, then go hardcore fighting in Soul Calibur style.My character would be the RP character I used during my early days on the laptop (yet I changed the name just because I want to)

    I really liked this. Sounds cool.

    I find myself in agreement with TSA. This isn’t community news, this is advertisement pure and simple. Which is why this place has the sidebar y’know, for links to sites such as our Mutual RP sites, Atake. And considering the backstory of your RP doesn’t even have the adventures of the Link from Ocarina of Time as part of the site’s history, I don’t see any connection between your post and the advertisement that you’ve sneakily tacked onto it.

    Artfully done, perhaps… but hardly worthy of you. For shame, Atake. For shame.
