Began on Triforce MUCK: 2000
Well, where to begin? Simply put - this is by far, the /best/ MUCK I
have played. Ever. So, what makes this place so great?
To get things started, Triforce MUCK is based around the Zelda games
on Nintendo. Specifically, it is focused on the Ocarina of Time and
Majora's Mask for the N64.
So now that you've got an idea of what this place is about, let me
give you some of the great features the MUCK has. First, as far as I
know, it is the only long standing Zelda MUCK in existence. Thus it
hasn't copied off of any other themes around. This place is pure,
There are currently, a total of two worlds to travel through on this
place. One is the land of Hyrule, complete with;
- Lake Hylia
- Kokiri Forest
- Death Mountain
- The Temple of Time
- Zora's Domain + fountain
- Kakariko Village
- Gerudo Valley
- The Desert Colossus
- Lon Lon Ranch
- Hyrule Markets
- Hyrule Field
- The Crimson Wolfos (an inn made by OC characters)
Also, recently, the land of Termina has opened. Althought not
complete, it offers a wide range of areas. Such areas include:
- Clock Town + inn
- Ikana Valley
- Southern Swamp
- Termina field, east, north, west and south
- Great Bay
As you can see, there is plenty of room for characters to explore.
Travel between the two worlds is done between a portal inside the
Temple of Time.
With characters, the choices open are quite broad. Currently, we are
accepting as many OC's (original characters) as possible. These
characters can be Kokiri, Goron, Hylian, Zora, Lizalfos, Deku, Fairy
(Kokiri guardians) or Gerudo. Most of the FC's have been filled.
However, several of the sages have been idle enough to inquire about.
I believe that Malon, Ingo and Talon are still open and are available
to apply. Yes, Ganondorf, Link and Zelda have been filled. Don't
bother asking to APP them.
Positions for characters are also quite wide. We currently have an
inn (the Crimson Wolfos) needing assistant cooks,
Bards/Minstrels/Entertainers, Dishwashers, Brewers, Butchers and
servers. Don't want to work at the inn? That's fine! You can apply
to be a knight in the Hyrulian army, a Zora who lives who serves under
the lovely princess Ruto, a Kokiri who dwells in the forest or even a
minion in Ganondorf's forces. The possibilities are quite broad.
Perhaps the best thing about character choices, is that races aren't
restrictied to their respective positions in the game. For example, if
you're a Kokiri, there is no need to stay in the forest all the time.
Provided you have a good enough IC reason, a Kokiri chatacter can
travel anywhere. Another example, is that we have Fairies (typically
Kokiri guardians) who don't guard anyone. They simply flutter about
Hyrule, going anywhere they please. We have Gerudo who ran from their
clans, joining the Hyrulian side or becoming rogues.
Now, onto plots. The theme is set about 10-15 years after Link
defeated Ganondorf the first time (Ocarina of Time). Having escaped
the seal that the sages set him with, Ganondorf resides in his giant
castle that sits just outside of Ikana canyon. He fled there after
being defeated by Link (again), to build up his forces. The forces of
good must triumph over Ganondorf, or surely hell will break across
Hyrule and Termina. This is the main, ongoing plot that is running
currently. Smaller plots are also being run from time to time,
enabling players with lots of variety.
Now comes on to the weaker part, the playerbase. If you're a Zelda
fan or just enjoyed Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask, I highly suggest
you come along. Currently we have about 10-15 active players, which
makes running a big plot somewhat difficult.
So yeah, come along to dovienya.net 6118. Once connected, you will
have to join as a guest, and fill out a character application. Once
that's done, it is only a matter of time before your own adventure
Hoping to see you online
