10 years ago today I opened History of Hyrule.
In honor of that, I had to get the calendar contest announced today!
PRIZES: I’m still deciding on what a few of them will be, but so far there’s already more ocarinas, manga, toys and figurines, ~and I’m also giving away a bunch of copies of Hyrule Historia.
In fact, if you get an entry in before the end of June, you’ll have a chance to win a copy of it just for participating!
Go read about it! Get inspired! And enter so we can make it freakn’ AWESOME!
Again, this contest is really just being held to make a free 2013 calendar for everyone: so it’s also kind of a collab. Even if you don’t care about prizes~ consider entering just to make something that every Zelda fan can use and love. Spread the word so it doesn’t suck!
The theme is History of Hyrule, so anything you could imagine happening in the history of all of the land should work!
And, if you have any questions, just ask!
I’m so excited. & Thanks for making all the years so great

In ancient times there was a kingdom where the power of the gods was said to reside. The people who lived in this richly blessed kingdom were called the Hylia, and it is said that they can hear the voices of the gods. In addition to they, the people of the plains, the mountain people, the Gorons, the water people, the Zoras, the desert people, the Gerudo, and the forest people, the Kokiri, were each living their own lives. Even in this rich land, destruction’s footsteps were steadily creeping in. It was then that wickedness encircled the land due to the hand of the evil one who had obtained the power of the gods, and this once beautiful land was falling into ruin. A person clad in green appeared from an unknown location and, gifted with divine power, brought the evil power to a just end, returning peace to his land. Because time manifested itself to him, this person is called the “Hero of Time”, and has been passed down as a legend in the kingdom. A short while later, dark clouds once again shrouded the kingdom to which it had seemed peace had returned. The one wielding the evil power, who had thought to be sealed away forever due to the hero’s efforts, had somehow achieved revival once again. The people waited anxiously for the hero of legend to reappear, but in the end the hero who had travelled the flow of time and left the country behind did not appear. In the protectorless kingdom, when the evil drew near to the royal palace, the people offered up their prayers and entrusted the fate of that land to the hands of the gods. A long time passed and now people who learn this story imitate the legendary hero. It’s said that it’s come to be that at the time that boys grow to adulthood, they make and wear green clothes in celebration. They entrust a wish to grow into fine people who could hold their own against even the hero of legend, garbed in green, who took up the sword of light to vanquish the evil ones.
