In a time where the hearts of many have grown to believe a true freedom of peace is theirs. In reality it lays to ruins in the hands and desires of one.
This is the opening the words the
Story Of Hyrule, fades into the picture.
This music is part of the intro from the Legend of Zelda Theme.
After travelling across the entire continent of Hyrule. Over mountains, braving though forests, rivers, lakes, and dungeons. Link has finally found the entrance to Ganondorf's towering labyrinth. Link has fought his way to the inner chambers of the tower. Knowing this will be the final confrontation, Link must face his greatest fears and doubts within himself, If he is to overcome the king of thieves in the battle to save Hyrule.
On an ill fated night the clouds all
over the Hyrule kingdom rumble in fear. Agahnims true identity is still not
known. Formally he came from an unknown kingdom ,saving Hyrule in a time where
terrible disasters plagued the destruction of the Hyrule kingdom. Agahnim
appeared and cleansed these disasters of the land. The king was in debt and as a
reward anointed the wizard royal advisor, 2nd in authority only to the king.
Though this night reveals that Agahnim is not who everyone sought him to be.
Within the castle walls he was laying in wait for the correct moment to appear.
That moment has come and Agahnims true intent is shown as the wizards strength
has grown powerful.
Agahnim easily overthrows the king, the royal guards and the kings wizards and sages.After seizing the castle Agahnim then imprisons the royal sages in to a shard like crystal.
These sages held the key to the seal in the tower at Death mountain.
"All but one remain now, to princess Zelda's quarters" Agahnims says to the master Knight Iron knuckle.
They force the doors to the chamber where princess Zelda sleeps open, very quickly she is over powered, where he imprisons her in a shard like crystal. And with a small jester of his hands the sages and Zelda disappear. Agahnims plot has been realized and the citizens in the kingdom of Hyrule have no idea what has just taken place.
Link is a swords man part of a small
group that forms a resistance when disasters appear.
The information of late that the resistance has acquired, all points towards Hyrule castle. The resistance believe that on this day, a wizard by the name of Agahnim who is the royal advisor to the king, is not who he claims to be. And this wizard is about to commit something terrible against the kingdom of Hyrule. Link waits till the night and decides alone to check out Hyrule castle as the information suggested.
As link enters the inner walls of the castle, he notices that there are no guards present anywhere were they ought to be. Link finds this suspicious and carries on further into the inner chambers. No sooner than a mere foot is walked, he is attacked by guards and they charge mindlessly towards link. They seem intent on killing intruders, they attack without thought and link must fight or be killed.
After a long battle with the guards,
Link comes to a door at the end of one of the corridors within the castle.
Link opens the door and walks in to an empty room with a door on the other side that has a lock placed on the key hole." I must make my way to the kings throne room the answers I seek must lay their " Link says to himself. As he walks near towards the centre, a chest appears. Stunned by this Link is curious to find out what is in the chest and opens the chest to find a small key. Link walks to the other door with the lock and uses the key on the lock somehow it fits and the lock falls towards the floor. The door opens to reveal steps leading upwards, Link goes up the stairs.
The door closes behind Link, the upper chambers of the castle reveal more guards. Link decides to try and evade the guards by using the shadows. Slowly Link moves towards the eastern wall using the shadows as a cloak. It appears Link has evaded them, only one more guard blocks the way forward. As link waits for the right moment to move, the guard link is waiting for hears a low noise. The guard looks in the direction Link is heading, the guard notices a figure in the shadows "intruder" the guard shouts and sounds the alarm. Now all the guards are aware and focus on to Link's position. As they swipe away mindlessly Link is able to dodge there attacks easily. Link spots a double sided door and makes a run for that door.
The door closes behind Link with a loud crashing sound, dust is thrown up, though quickly settles. Link is in the throne room and at the back of the room, Link can see 6 statues. Each statue represents one of the royal knights that faced off against Ganondorf in the crusade led by the king, in the time of the blood of wars. The knight statues have an eerie presents when looked at. Link begins to hear a rumble getting louder and louder. The statues begin to shake violently, then they begin to move towards Link. Link must fight these statues if he is to survive.
After an arduous battle link manages
to get the upper hand on these statues and defeats them.
Link has gained more experience points. No sooner then link sheaths the sword away, the room begins to bend and warp, the room has been trapped by Agahnim. Link was expected and falls to the floor in a struggle and in a few seconds link is subdued and is knocked unconscious.
Link awakes in a small ruined marshy
like area, in the west of Hyrule. Link slowly gets up still feeling a little
Link wonders how long he has been unconscious for. Soon Link decides to head in
an easterly direction.
Sometime later, Link reaches a T-junction and decides to head north.
Eventually link comes to a crossroad and a sign post on the edge of the path reads :
West - Dark Forest
North - Dark forest shrine
South - South Dark land plains
East - East Dark land plains
Link feels the best cause of action in his state would be to find a town and regain his strength, to be able to continue in the search of Agahnim. After travelling north towards the town, Link reaches the gates of Kasuto town. Though it appears to lay in ruins, it has been abandoned for quite sometime. With the town being destroyed, Link decides to head back to the crossroads, taking the direction to the east, this time towards the Boarder caves.
Link reaches an entrance to a cave,
inside a small stream is passing through the entrance chamber.
Link travels further into the cave complex, there is a sense of wonder inside these cave chambers.
In one of the chambers there is an opening at the top of the chamber allowing for beautiful lit walls, reflected by the ora of the light hitting the water. Link Decides to head deeper into the cave complex. Further into the cave system Link notices these glowing round like orbs made of light. A few of the lights float past him, Link is stunned by these lights. One of the lights floating within the group breaks away from the others. Link is curious and decides to follow this orb made of light. Down and around through many passages and chambers. Eventually the light stops and floats around a few rocks. Link goes to inspect the rocks and notices a large crack in the wall. Link is well equipped to handle situations like these, all thanks to the Goron tribe in the mountain region, when Link visited not so long ago. They gave Link a special bag that no adventurer should be without. It is a bomb bag made from a material indigenous to mountain region where the Goron tribe lives. It makes anything heavy one carries appear very light. Link places a bomb near the crack of the wall, Link stands back and waits, a loud explosion echoes throughout the cave. Link sighs and is thankful that there was no cave in.
A large opening has been created, Link takes a look inside, It appears to be a long narrow shaft and at the bottom a source of light peering through an exit. Link decides to use some rope to climb down, halfway down, the rope can extend no more but link feels he can drop down the rest of the distance and does so.
Link lands and walks out of the cave, it is the peak of the day, a bright blue sky sets the background. And only a few clouds over head can be seen. A bustling town can be seen from the hills Link is standing on. Just before the entrance to the town Link reads a sign post : Welcome to new Kasuto town. There are town folks aplenty and many shops selling various foods and items. This town is one of the largest towns in the Hyrule kingdom. Link carries on walking, looking for possible clues and maybe a place to rest. A young lady walks up to Link and introduces herself, hello my name is Malon please let me help you, come inside to my house. Link is tired and decides rest would be the right course of action. Taking up Malon's offer Link enters the house. Malon says to link I can restore you life force, Link feels his life force returning and soon feels strong again, Link thanks her. Malon mentions her grandfather is the wise man of this town and suggests to Link that he should talk with him.
After links life force is revived,
Malon takes link to a chamber below the house.
The room is filled with ancient books with information from every corner of every kingdom including the Hyrule kingdom.
After Sahasrahia taught Link the melody on the flute like instrument, Link thanks Sahasrahia and Malon for all they have done. They all exit the house and Link now begins on his new quest to find the master sword. Just as Link is leaving the town Malon calls to Link" wait, stop "she says. My grandfather has asked me to help you on your quest. To Links surprise it is a horse, she is called Epona, she is from a noble race of horses, from a kingdom beyond the boundaries of Hyrule. She is unlike any horse in Hyrule, if you use that flute and play this melody that I will teach you. You can call on her to come to your aid. Link learns the melody and gets on to Epona and again thanks Malon for all she has done. Link departs north towards the Kasuto meadow.
As Link approaches Kasuto meadow, Link
begins to hear a flute like melody being played.
Finding this melody curious, Link dismounts off Epona and begins to search for
the source of where this melody is coming from. The melody leads Link into a
small stream running into the forest, it seems to be louder here. The sound of
this flute seems to be directing Link where to go. Eventually Link finds an
alcove some distance into the forest. Though by this time, the melody Link could
hear before, begins to fade away. "Am I in the lost woods" Link wonders, in the
alcove Link notices a trail not often used. This trail leads beyond the alcove
further into the forest.
Link decides to follow this trail.
The trail Link has followed leads into
a misty grotto, link follows the trail further.
Out of the grotto Link emerges in another area with towering trees, teaming with forest wild life. The trail stops at some stone stairs, the stairs lead upwards to a stone platform. On top of the platform is a pedestal engulfed with rays of light, piercing through the tree branches. Inside the pedestal a large sword is placed upright, indeed as Sahasrahia said, this must be the master of blades.
Link walks up the stairs towards the sword and with a mighty yelp, pulls the sword from out of the pedestal and claims the master sword, then holds the blade high above his head. To let the animals of the forest know he now carries the hope of light of every creature within this blade. Link then does as Sahasrahia instructed and plays the melody taught to him on the flute like instrument given to him by Sahasrahia. No sooner than the last note is played a mighty whirlwind begins to appear and sweeps Link inside it, taking Link to his new destination.
