Nice, quite a bit of interest so far.
Fresh start seems to be the most popular option so I'll refine the plans for that.
I was thinking starting lv 6, PCs can start strong but not yet reality-warping. Or lv4/2 if players want to keep things more simple and start more on the underdog side.
I wanted to join in as a Link copy but never got an intro and then things died.
Ow, sorry about that, you posted your chracter but somehow I got the impression you weren't ready yet so never made an intro scene.
Well you could finally get to use your Link copy this time.
But seriously though this gives me a chance to either try something else out (cause there's other things I wanna do character wise) or even finally put that
fairypixie vampire to work.
Fairies are common enough in Zelda, vampires not so much in my memory, but assorted undeads are common too guess we could make it work as some uniquish corruption/curse (unless you remember a Nintendo franchise that has vampires).
I'm gonna be honest, I'm interested, but my ideas thus far are "Minish Warlock" and "Goron Bard." Just need to figure out the appropriate race for each.
Prime32 made some nice Goron race stats
here (plus Zora and Deku and Kokiri), all of which are approved (although I would be fine with refluffing something else). For Minish, may I suggest my inchling
Would prospective characters need to be based on existing Zelda themes, or would stuff from Nintendo's toybox that could fit in the setting also be welcomed?
Pretty much anything from Nintendo ok a la super smash brothers. The original party had a metroid space pirate and not-Kirby and a pokemon trainer in pseudo-Zelda setting. You can always claim "portals/my ship crashed".
