Zelda Dungeon Marathon 2019:

Hello, and welcome back to “On the Quest for 100.”

Yes, I know, it’s been a while – three weeks now? My bad. *tugs collar* Had a lovely little bout of chaos in there, as life is sometimes known to throw around, but, I am back, I am excited, and I am ready to rock and roll! Let’s get started!

At the end of my last entry, I promised that I would delve a little bit into stunt coordination – after all, the internet is just full of game clips such as this one, this one, and this lovely little beauty, all begging to be recreated. The combination of various game mechanics and the limitless creativity of players has yielded such interesting and new methods of problem solving never really seen in the Zelda series. In a universe chock full of puzzles with one answer, it’s a nice change of pace to have something a little more open-ended.

Not to mention, the expression on Ganon’s face as Link subverts all his guardians by sailing through the front door of Sanctum on a slab of stone he found lying around would just be hilarious. Like, how does a villain plan for something like that, really?

So, as I have mentioned a couple times, I really want to find or create and pull off the ultimate stunt, and while I don’t actually know what that will entail quite yet, I have been brushing up on a few basic useless skills while I consider. You know, like the aforementioned riding stone slabs or jumping from Akkala Tower onto a Guardian Skywatcher, just to see if it notices. I figure, why not build up to the bigger, flashier, and stupidly entertaining?

Well, as it turns out, I’m going to need a lot of practice.

No, seriously, send help.

Are you kidding me, Link?!

Yeah. This is going to take a while. To be entirely honest, I don’t actually know if it’s possible to ride a Skywatcher. I tried so many times, and each time, Link just kinda slid right off, but I had hoped…

I imagine my stunt planning will involve several sketches and storyboards. Maybe some red string straight out of a crime drama. And more than a few hearty cooked meals. But I will prevail! I swear to you, my dear readers, that I will pass this introductory lesson, and I will do so at the very least with a B!

Feel free to send advice. Obviously, I could use it.


The Seed Collector

I actually have two seeds to share with you today, because I spent a few days doing nothing in game but Korok hunting, and hit two milestones in the process.

The first, located under the West Sokkala Bridge, became number 441, which, for those unsure why this particular number would be a milestone, is the last seed needed to complete inventory expansion. In my case, the last inventory slot went into my shield stash. From here, every seed I collect will be for the sole purpose of achieving Hestu’s golden “gift.” Joy…

The second seed I have for you today can be found on a ledge in Tanagar Canyon, Southwest of the Forgotten Temple. Number 500. Woo!

This seed isn’t necessarily important, I just thought it was cool. 500, man. Whew.


Progress Update
