Description

The first quest in the Nargad Trail series. Started as a small collaboration quest between Twilight_Knight and CastChaos, it is now a full fledged quest with a fun concept, crazy overworlds, 8 intense dungeons, 1 huge final dungeon, secret areas and many extras.

Story

Long ago, there was an incredible force in Krelaila that controlled the universe. It was so mighty that people called in their God. Because some wanted to be freed from the mind-controlling force, they harnessed the power in the form of artifacts and these artifacts were hidden far away, hidden from humanity.

Ages later, nearly all records were destroyed of the force, since it was insulting to modern-day beliefs. However, a young, wicked boy named Argon was lucky enough to have one of the last surviving books, telling about the Orb of Fierce, the mightiest rune on the planet. He became obsessed with the idea of having it.

Argon grew up to be a war commander and his many victories and plunders made him so incredibly rich he bought his own estate, with his own laws, allowing magic to be practiced in public. From here he could surely obtain the Orb of Fierce...

Around the same time, a young boy in the town of Millton just became 18, old enough to get his own equipment and travel the country far and wide. This is were all the following horrors began. His name was Nargad and this is Nargad's Trail...

Besides that, there are 8 classical dungeons by CastChaos featured in this quest and 1 big final dungeon.

Story

The lands of Krelaila are under attack by a dreadful army called the Rebonites and Nargad is sent to retrieve an ancient artifact in order to stop that army. Unravel the mysteries about Argon and the Orb of Fierce. Learn more about Krelaila's past and find out who your true enemy is.

Description

This quest by CastChaos is the sequel and succesor of Ballad of a Bloodline. It's a big, story revolved quest where the main character Coral can change the seasons! Bound to be epic.

Story

After the happenings of Ballad of a Bloodline, life goes on as it never did. The inhabitants of the new Hyrule discovered the truth behind the old legends, but it's not clear for them how did Vaati disappear and what has became with those whos are supposedly behind it: Knil and Myra. It is rumoured that they were the ones whos rebuilt a certain old monolith, which is now the symbol of Peace. Altough adventuring isn't forbidden anymore, few dare to do it.

16 years after the disappearance of Vaati, a girl, called Coral, is living with her mother at Mt.DeadEnd. Having an immense urge for adventure, she follows a strange call to the Monolith of Peace where a soul contacts her and begs Coral to destroy the eight Tetrad Seals, so the soul can locate the gate that leads to the soul's freedom. After a while, Coral accepts the adventure and keeps changing the seasons so that all eight dungeon (where the Tetrad Seals are guarded) can be accessed. But the leisure tetrad collecting soon turns into a race for tetrads, a nightmare where Coral doesn't know who is friend or foe anymore and even starts to doubt her own place in the universe...

This is a slightly bigger than small quest with Myra as main character (this is a Ballad of a Bloodline prequel), three dungeons that you beat in any order then a final dungeon. There are two endings. All items and enemies are either highly tweaked or completely custom. (My favourite is the aLttP style skeletton.) There are 3 custom bosses altogether.

Story

The Christmas feeling fades in Hyrule from year to year but this time an entity contacts Myra claiming that it's the Spirit of Christmas and sends her on an adventure to destroy three ward items that keep the Christmas feeling out from Hyrule.
