    [Winter 08] The Legend of Zelda - A Key to the Heavens

    The Legend of Zelda - A Key to the Heavens
    By Joe123 and russadwan

    Initial Storyline Information
    After Link's adventures on Koholint island, he heads on with his travels.
    All is well for a few days, until Link's ship hits a particularily stormy sea.
    As the rain starts to set in, Link stows his sails and battons down the hatches, hoping to escape the wrath of the storm.
    But luck is not on Link's side this day, and as he waits patiently in the cabin, the storm grows and grows, until a maelstrom rages on outside Link's ship.
    Tossing and turning, Link's ship strikes a rock, and he reaches for his weapons before being cast out into the storm.
    A huge spout of water catches him, and he is carried up into the sky.
    The next thing he knows, he is lying in an unfamilliar wood, in a mysterious land.
    After a few minutes searching the immediate area, Link finds only his shield and an empty bottle, with no sign of the Master Sword.
    He continues to wonder aimlessly around this strange forest, until he is met by a fairy, Leaf, who helps Link find his sword and promises to help Link return to his own world if he can assist in this one.
    They head off to the nearby village, and upon querying the villagers, he finds that the world is on the brink of destruction, and heads off to speak with the King.
    Link offers his services to save this world, and after telling his tales of adventures to the king, he is granted a noble steed to help him undergo his quest.

    The King tells Link that the force that is threatening this world hides away, high above the mountains in the north of the world, where none can reach him, let alone oppose him.
    The King tells Link that to reach this evil abode, this Sky Palace, he will have to find three pieces of the force that keeps the north locked.
    He must re-assemble the Key to the Heavens.
    And with the power of this key, he will be able to open the staircase in the sky, granting him entry to the Sky Palace.

    The Key was broken, and the three pieces scattered across all of Potomus.
    One in the Eramus Desert to the East,
    One in Lake Lemanus to the South,
    One in the Niemvagora Shades to the West,
    And the key-hole hidden on Mount Aurichalcium to the north.

    Link must travel to the depths of this new world with Epona and Leaf to retrieve the 3 Key Pieces, and then have them re-forged at the base of Mount Aurichalcium, before traversing to it's summit and opening the staircase to the Sky Palace, to cast down the evil the world holds.

    Screenshots






    Features and Information
    This game will be script heavy, with features such as:
    • Epona
    • A Fairy to follow Link and offer advice
    • An empty bottle potion system
    • A trading sequence
    • NPCs and signposts
    • Link Rolling
    • Roc's Cape
    • Potholes & Walkable Water
    • Locked Dungeons
    • Custom (scripted) bosses


    Russ is doing the dungeons and I'm doing the overworlds.

    Those screens look detailed... really detailed. I hope no one gets this confused with my quest, Link to the Heavens.

    Four dungeons, eh? I'm hoping they'll be nice and big, or at least this quest will have lots of side events (* la Majora's Mask).

    Looking good! This is another quest going on my need-to-play list!
    My quests:
    End of Time - First quest, uses classic graphics (Help/discussion thread)
    Link to the Heavens - Second quest, uses Pure tileset (YouTube LP | Help/discussion thread)
    End of Time DX - Remake of my first quest (YouTube LP | Help/discussion thread)

    Detail is good, no?

    And I did anticipate that, hopefully they wont.

    There won't be that many side-quests, we're not even using heart pieces.
    It's meant to be a mini-quest to show of Epona really.

    EDIT: You can bet on some nice large overworld areas though :)

    Oh yes, detail is very good. And those screens are detailed.

    Well, good luck to you two. Group quests have a history of failing, but Petoe and Wolfie proved that wrong.
    My quests:
    End of Time - First quest, uses classic graphics (Help/discussion thread)
    Link to the Heavens - Second quest, uses Pure tileset (YouTube LP | Help/discussion thread)

    Ur, about that. The dungeons will start out very, very small (like 20 minutes or less to beat), but they will gradually get bigger. The last level should take about an hour and a half max to beat. But the bosses should be neat. A perfect combonation of scripting and good old fashioned custon boss making. And I am hoping to slip a few side events into it.
    Just remember, it's a mini quest, made primarily to show off the Epona script. Although it's growing into something much more than that.

    Yes, it is growing at quite a fast rate actually.
    Hopefully it won't get out of hand.

    What sort of sidequests did you have planned Russ?
    I'm all ears.

    I was thinking of using that boat script that Mega Link's making me write for a mini-game for a HC in the lake area, and there's the trading sequence, what else?
