North Hyrule Field Map by TheRabidArtist North Hyrule Field Map by TheRabidArtist
(This piece is part of my concept for "War of Hyrule: Legend of Zelda Online." Other pieces are in my gallery in my "War of Hyrule" tab. These maps are based on World of Warcraft's map system. Credit to Kanaru of for the castle, border, water lines, and parchment templates. Blog will be up soon with more information)

Well, here's my first attempt at a zone map. This one is of North Hyrule Field, the starting region for the Hylians and home of the Union of Hylia capital, Hyrule Castle. Currently, Hyrule Castle is under siege by the Dragmire Invasion. They've destroyed part of the north wall and are invading through via their camp, The Dragmire Front. This are acts as a high level dungeon for experienced Union players, as well as an invasion point for Invasion players.

Because of the invasion, if Union players wish to enter Hyrule Castle, they enter through a hidden entrance on the south-east wall of the castle.

Hylians begin their journey in the eastern Hylia Barracks and continue to the Market Town. The Broken Farms to the east are currently under control by bandits while peahats threaten the populace.

The Ruins of Time are the, well, ruins of the first Temple of Time and is now under control by cultists. This acts as a mid-level dungeon for leveling players.

Once players have finished with this zone, they continue to South Hyrule Field. There is a secret tunnel to Eldin Foothills that lies somewhere on the map...

It's a standard WoW style map.

This sounds like a RPG in an AU. Nice stuff.

Excellent I've had a shot making custom maps and know how long they take to make. Great work.
P.S. I like the added Barbican walls.

How do you make these wonderful maps?

so what exactly is this War of Hyrule?
G-Master64 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2008
how long did it take you to make these maps? and also i like the way you did the old town Hyrule Castle walled path area. great job keep it up.
TheRabidArtist Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2008
Thanks for the praise. Sorry for the late response...just started college haha.

Um, it took me about...gosh, I'd say 3 hours total, from the pencil drawing to the finished product. If you haven't already check out the world/continent maps too. I haven't been busy working on them because of time, but they will definitely come in the future.

Thanks. The Hyrule Castle part was fun to do. One of the walls has been breached by Ganondorf's army and it acts as an invasion point for evil players and a "dungeon" level for hero players.

You did real well with it! I can't wait for you to make the rest of the zones! Have you done the zoning areas for Koholint Island?
TheRabidArtist Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Not quite. I'm still trying to figure out how Koholint would work it's way in. I'm thinking of making it one zone, with all the mini regions from Link's Awakening that we know and love in it. I'm thinking of making it one large PvP zone where both sides are fighting for control of the island...but maybe an event comes along where the Windfish gets pissed and does something...dunno yet.

Stay tunes :D
ExxorD Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
OK! I will stay tuned for more. I hope the Windfish doesn't make the island unaccessable, killing those who are on it. Oo;
TheRabidArtist Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2008
Haha. No, I don't think of the Windfish as a villain, but more of an obstacle.

We'll see what I think of. Right now, I'm just thinking about the mainland.
ExxorD Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2008
Might it be a possible quest giver? :?
TheRabidArtist Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2008
Very possible :D
ExxorD Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2008
I'll just sit back and see what happens. cx
