The Legend of Zelda:
A Storm of Wind and Time
By: Aegis Runestone
Prologue: The Legend and the Princess
There is a well-known legend in Hyrule that occurred hundreds of years ago. An evil man named Majora, who wore a twisted mask, attacked the land of Hyrule to cause pain and suffering. He was a dark shaman who performed horrible rituals on his victims. The King rallied his armies to attack the menace, but it was to no avail.
But then a warrior wielding the blade of evil's bane stepped forward and slew Majora, and destroyed his power by shattering the mask. Because he had traveled through time itself to save his land, the warrior was known hereafter as the "Hero of Time." Following Majora's destruction, the Hero vanished into his own era.
Years passed; Hyrule grew and prospered; many forgot the horrors of Majora, but never would they forget the legend. All seemed peaceful, but unbeknownst to the people, a new legend would soon be written. Even in their own scriptures, there was a prophecy written by the Sages, but the people were so caught up in their daily lives that they did not read. And those that did, only believed such things were fairy tales. This is the story of the fulfillment of that prophecy.
It started a long time ago, not too long ago; four and half years ago evil returned to Hyrule when the Princess disappeared. After several days of searching, no one could find her anywhere at all. Some say that she was taken by monsters, others blamed the King, but whatever the reason she was gone.
The King was devastated; he had lost his wife just a few years prior and now his kingdom's survival was threatened with the disappearance of his only heir to the throne.
Worse things were to come. For at that very year, a group of pirates never before known on the seas, rose up and assaulted outlying islands, leaving villages to burn, while stealing any valuables they could find before vanishing into the depths.
In response, the King set up tighter defenses against these raiders. Word had spread on the wings of the wind that the pirates were planning an attack on Hyrule, even an attack against the Royal Family itself. The King scoffed at these rumors, proclaiming that these new defenses would protect anything, including the sacred Ocarina of Time from any evil hands.
Unfortunately, it was not the pirates the King should have kept his eye on...
