It’s about time we ventured into even dorkier territory, isn’t it? I mean, as much as I enjoy discussing the Zelda series at large, the prospect of roleplaying as my own Hyrulean character sounds just as exciting.
An offshoot of Want Midna Back, Dungeons and Darknuts is an in-character Legend of Zelda forum. The board not only allows players to sign up as a member of virtually any race from the series, but it also boasts a wide variety of classes. Duelist, scholar, pirate, engineer, warrior — you name it.
Each character class gains unique level-up skills, which can be used throughout your adventure. Feel free to share any background information about your character in the Character Lore board, too.
From there, players may join whichever guild best suits his or her character’s alignment. As of right now, an individual guild may fall into one of three groups: Din’s Power, Nayru’s Wisdom, or Farore’s Courage. Additionally, the forum houses shops for weapons, armor, and miscellaneous items, all of which are necessary for questing.
Speaking of which, the real meat of Dungeons and Darknuts comes from the board’s quests. Both boss fights and mini-boss fights are available for a set number of players to tackle. There is a board that’s strictly dedicated to roleplaying, too — one where players can start their own adventures.
All credit goes to WMB administrator Lauren “Spookypatrol” Felipe for setting this up, by the way. Fingers crossed, this will sound entertaining to most of the community. Hope to see you on the forums!
