[Dark World Event] || [The Evil Realm] || [Open] || [2/3]

Characters: Anyone who signed up for the Dark World Plot! Look at tag list for more details.
Setting: The 4th and 5th of March. Located in the Cursed Floors + Ganon's Tower (Floors 6, 7, 8, 12, 62, 65, 68, 70, 73 and 79 + Floor 75).
Format: Most likely action but left at the players's discretion.
Summary: Your character somehow got trapped in the Forest Floor of the Tower-- And it looks nothing like the Forest Floor the characters remember. It's the beginning of the Dark World. Some floors look pretty different from what they did before, some nearly identical. The only way to get out is to go through the dungeons that make up this Dark World.

All characters start out in the Dark Forest, then as they go throughout the forest, they magically walk into one of the three dungeons (the one they have been assigned to). By exploring the dungeons, they will acquire one of the three Pendants that lead to the Core of the Curse, from where the cursed floors can be ended. However, Richtofen is there and happy to make sure that won't be that easy.

Mingle threads are simply for Mingle, whereas the exploration of the dungeons, puzzles, etc happens in the Exploration threads. OOC information here.

Warning: While your character may survive fine and all, the dark world is a dangerous place with lots of monsters and puzzles to solve. Characters may get harmed or killed, but that is left to the players's discretion. Characters going through the water of temple may lose their patience and sanity.


Arrival in the Dark World
Here are simply listed the three different ways your characters may have gotten dragged into the Dark World. Note this can be a combination of many of these ways, feel free to pick how your characters arrived in!

• The character may simply have been present on the floor when Ganondorf cursed it. That's really… Bad luck? If that is how it happened, the character would have been immediately transported into the Dark Forest Floor. If they arrived before the 4th of March, they would have been unable to leave this floor for three days. Which may be pretty unnerving.

• The character may have been caught by a floormaster or wallmaster somewhere throughout the tower, and cast into the Dark World. Floormasters and Wallmasters are gigantic and creepy black, red or purple hands that come out from either the floor or the ceiling and take characters to another part of the tower, point in case the Dark Forest.

• They character may have found one of the black doors of Mordor leading into the cursed floors. Out of luck, a creepy black hand similar to that of wallmaster could have come out of from the door and have dragged them in.

• The last option is the simplest, Ganondorf hided in the shadows and cast a spell on you that teleported you right into the Dark Forest. This option is mostly directed to those who have past history with Ganondorf or who are known to be close of Princess Zelda, Link and Tetra.

[ After having faced Riku Replica, the boy will have mentioned the only way to end the dark world is to kill the curse caster (actually killing repliku works too but that's probably not the kind of details he'd mention). Furthermore he will have opened a portal leading to the entrance of the second tower-- The place where the King of Evil currently 'hides'.

Unlike the other floors, this one is not cursed. It is the same as it is normally, if only darker and protected by dark magic: you are effectively outside of the Dark World, congratulation! You could chose to exit this floor and go back to your daily life, but unfortunately the way to the exit stairs is closed by a thick darkness barrier, one that won't fall unless the Curse falls as well. In the end, that's not so different from the cursed floors...

If you chose to enter the tower and find the one who cast the curse, there are many monsters in there-- Only Darknuts, but thankfully they are easilly avoided and won't pursues characters if they engage in the staircase. Aside from the monsters there is no one to be seen in there and it is strangely calm and silent, but a presence can be felt lingering on the roof of the tower.

Getting to the tower's roof should be relatively easy if one follows the spiral staircase, though going up twenty floors may be quite tiring. Obviously flying or teleportation powers are currently blocked, and won't work to get up there.

If characters have such sensing abilities, they'll feel a strong evil and dark presence the closer they get to the top of the tower, the very same one that contaminated the cursed floors. Strangely enough, they may also feel a completely opposite presence, one of good and light... ]

[In most other situations, Ruler would have had no problem fighting the Darknuts patrolling the halls. They might be tough, but her strength and abilities are high in the Servant ranks. But even so, she kept out of their sight, completely focused on finding the stairs leading up.

The slightly stifling, evil presence made the hairs on the back of her neck stand on end, a chill running down her spine the moment she set foot on the first step. But that other presence, the polar opposite... she knows that presence. And the concern for why it's there, amidst the dark aura, far outweighs any unease she might feel.

So she continues on. There won't be much time to stop and chat when she's so focused on her current goal.]
