I made my way to Death Mountain.
Oh, how nice. A village is here. I meandered through the town, aimlessly going wherever the wind would take me. I wasted 10 rupees on the stupid gravedigger’s game.
I finally went to the mountain pass entrance. Blocked by a gate, as it turned out. I presented the guard my royal letter from Zelda. He took it as a joke. What a jerk.
He told me that I should buy a new shield to traverse the landscape. What?! Another one? He also told about how he couldn’t get a mask for his kid. Like it’s my problem.
*sigh* I went all the way back to town for the shield only to find that it was 80 flippin’ rupees! I don’t have that kind of money!!
I remembered hearing about a shooting gallery somewhere and was hoping for a nice cash prize afterwards. 20 big ones to enter. I tried twice. I suck.
With no money, I decided it was time to take a break.
As is tradition in these sorts of things, I had to name my character “Link.” It’s only logical, you know.
The Great Deku Tree called me today. He also gave me a fairy! How nice of that fellow. But what is this?! I am required to have a sword and shield to see the great tree? *Sigh* Apparently it’s dangerous to go alone. So I crushed all the rocks and got enough rupees to pay for a dinky little shield.
But where is the sword? I traveled through a tiny hole and came to a strange area guarded by a rock with the power to change direction at 90 degrees.
After finally getting everything I needed, I went to see the Great Deku Tree. He tasked me with destroying the evil entity within him. Gross.
The skulltulas gave me trouble, the puzzles were fun, and it was a pretty good introduction to the game as a whole. Z-targeting took me a while to understand, but it was definitely revolutionary at the time and it still works to perfection today.
I defeated Gohma and destroyed the evil from within. The Great Deku Tree told me of the threat that was coming soon. Whatever that means.
Saria gave me a beautiful going away present: an ocarina. Now off to the town!
After outsmarting all of the guards, I met the princess. She seemed nice.
Onto the Goron kingdom!
This blog primarily serves one purpose: documenting my journey through The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I have made it my goal to finish it this summer, as I have not experienced this game yet. Unfortunately, I have yet to start, but at least I have this bloga all set up and ready to go for when I decide to start! Now…let’s go save the kingdom!
