Duke Serkol's Zelda Storyline

1/1/2000 - 5/11/2008
by Duke Serkol of Tolemac

Welcome to the old storyline section. While I mantain the validity of the theories expressed in here, the unquestionable fact remains that some aspects of them contradict what Nintendo has now established as canon, in particular the child timeline being split off into a third "what if" timeline and the identity of the Link in Oracles. Still, if you would like to know how the Zelda series flows in my personal opinion, you're welcome to continue reading.
