The Legend of Zelda: Forgotten Gates is a Zelda fan game with Final Fantasy-style combat and a dash of Rogue-like. It is inspired by and uses characters from the online roleplaying community Triforce MUCK.

Join a merry band of roleplayers as they weave a tale of adventure in the world of Hyrule. Monstrous forces stir in the land, kidnapping various individuals and leeching their innate magic. As the heroes rescue their friends and gather clues about the incidents, they uncover a plot to reopen long-lost portals to distant lands where powerful artifacts lie hidden. Can our heroes beat the sinister hordes to the legendary relics? More importantly, what can our roleplayers do if the guy who started this campaign has to take a night off? Guess somebody else could take over for a bit, but the story (and the gameplay!) could turn out a little different depending on who's telling it...

Forgotten Gates is currently in a very rough, barely-playable alpha stage, but it boasts procedurally-generated random quests, complex enemy behavior, and heroes both familiar and original. The final game is expected to feature a unique interactive narrator system, support for creating your own quest generation rules, and over a dozen playable characters.

Character spotlight: Rauru



Rauru is probably the least fleshed-out of the Six Sages in the source material. All the other Sages you meet and interact with before they awaken as Sages, but Rauru is already a Sage when you meet him, and his role is to explain your second-act mission and send you off on it. Well, actually, there are hints that Kaepora Gaebora, the large owl who gives Link instruction dumps several times, is Rauru in a magical transformation, although it's not explicitly confirmed.

On Triforce MUCK-turned-Zelda RPG, I'm the player for Rauru, and I added some backstory for him. He came from a noble family and used the opportunity that afforded him to pursue the path of the scholar and priest. He eventually became a trusted advisor to the King of Hyrule, and was also one of Princess Zelda's tutors as she grew up. Rauru was aware of prophecies regarding the Hero of Time, and yes, helped to guide Link as Kaepora Gaebora...but he didn't know of his own role as the Sage of Light until Link claimed the Master Sword and was sealed within the Sacred Realm for his seven-year slumber.

In Forgotten Gates, Rauru is unsurprisingly anothersquishy wizard-type. Being a portly old man, he's slow and not very strong physically, but his magical ability rivals even Zelda's. His weapon of choice is daggers, mainly because they're something that could be hidden in those oversized sleeves of his. ;)

While I agree that this project has potential the current build really doesn't feel ready for release. I realize that the release was probably pushed a bit for the Release Something XIII event, but it really feels like it should have been held back for a bit longer considering how prone this game is to crashing.

Wow, an actual video for my game, wasn't expecting that, especially so soon. :) Thanks for that, and thanks for finding those bugs, hadn't seen those before.
Your welcome.

Though I would have had this posted sooner if my upload speed to youtube wasn't so slow right now. I've been waiting almost five hours now for the next part of my Let's Play for Wild Arms 5 (PS2) to clear.
I like the look of those battlers. Mapping is a little square.
Thanks, it's encouraging to hear someone express an interest. :) Unfortunately you'll be waiting a while as this project is currently on hiatus, but I do intend to get back to it.
