2023.05.30 19:23 Hal_Keaton [Totk] Thyphlo Ruins in Totk have some interesting implications
Obviously, this post will have some spoilers for a questline, so please read at your own risk.
I wanted to discuss Thyphlo Ruins with others people because I find them fascinating, and they are also somewhat connected to the Sage Temple Ruins at well. The existence of Thyphlo Ruins has some interesting implications for other ruins found in Hyrule.
Now before digging into the meat of this game, I had previously assumed that any Zonai-looking ruins were the last remains of the Zonai culture before the Imprisoning War.
However, Thyphlo Ruins challenges this notion.
The tale of this particular questline actually begins in the Sage Temple Ruins, where a new cave has opened to reveal the basement parts of these ruins. These ruins look very similar to the current architecture of Hyrule, rather than the Zonai-looking ruins we see in Faron or in the sky. In other words, they functionally look no different from the ruins of the garrisons or outposts we can find littered across Hyrule.
There, a stone tablet, written in modern Hyrulean, says:
A sword was enshrined in this temple to honor the sages. It was moved to Thyphlo, north of the Great Forest of Hyrule
This weapon, as it turns out, is the Dusk Claymore. The Dusk Claymore is the Sword of the Six Sages from BotW, renamed. The description for this sword has also changed. In BotW, it was:
The Six Sages are said to have forged this longsword to seal a demon king in the world where the hero fought against the beasts of twilight. The blade shines with a holy luster.
But in Totk, it is:
A slender claymore thought to have been handed down to the kingdom of Hyrule ages ago. The blade shines with a holy luster.
We also need to take another detour about the written language in this game. There is "modern Hyrulean", "ancient Hyrulean", and then the Zonai script.
The Zonai script is what we can see in the Ring Ruins, and they are different from ancient Hyrulean, as explained by Wortworth, one of the few researchers who can somewhat read the ancient text. As he explains:
Wortworth: "It's the same Hyrulean script, and yet it's so different from our modern language.
And by ancient Hyrulean, I don't mean the text found in the Ring Ruins, but something different.
It's what we call the language used at the time of Hyrule's founding. Our modern language is built on that foundation.
These books here are written in that ancient tongue. They'd look like gibberish to your average Hyrulean.
Basically, the current written script uses the same script as the written language of the founding days of Hyrule. However, because the language has since changed over time, the modern way of writing the text makes the ancient text look like gibberish. It would be like if I ddensly epty ikle this. ("suddenly type like"). Although I think I read ancient Hyrulean is meant to be written as if it was old English, instead of modern English.
It's the script that is used by the chamberlain from the ancient past, who described the daily lives of Princess Zelda, Rauru, and Sonia on those twelve stone tablets you have to find in the sky. Link is unable to read it himself, but Wortsworth (kinda) can.
[Side note, if the language was meant to be different then, then I'm not sure how Zelda was able to understand the ancient people so easily. I guess only their writing was different?]
However, this is not the case with the text found in the Sage Temple or the Thyphlo Ruins, which is perfectly readable by Link. This is also explained by Kazul, the researcher stationed there, who is surprised himself that modern Hyrulean is written in the ruins of the Thyphlo Ruins.
This quest requires that you have 4 of the 5 Sages to continue it to completion: Sage of Water, Sage of Lightning, Sage of Fire, and Sage of Wind. Once you have them, you can do the puzzling of the ruins to unlock the Dusk Claymore and the secrets of the ruins.
Inside the ruins, this is what it has to say:
A Monument to Loyalty
Hyrule owes its peace today to the gift that King Rauru gave unto us in his noble feat of imprisoning the Demon King.
The great battle, ended with a seal, began with support from the sages, each of whom bore a shining, secret stone.
Among these were four Hyruleans, loyal warriors all, who hastened to King Rauru's aid as their oaths demanded.
They are the pride of the peoples of Hyrule. This stone monument is dedicated to the loyalty that will echo through time.
Outside the ruins, you can also find seven "spots" (six surrounding one in the center), clearly representing the Six Sages and King Rauru. As Kazul puts it:
Kazul: "This ruin is dedicated to the sages who fought with Rauru, the first king of Hyrule. It was built by Hylians afterward! That explains why there was Hyrulean text on the monoliths we found.
This revelation has a lot of implications for the worldbuilding. It proposes:
- Not all the ruins of Zonai architecture found on the Surface is from Rauru's reign or older. Some are younger.
- The Sage Temple Ruins are likely older than Thyphlo Ruins, since the sword was taken from there and enshrined in Thyphlo later.
- This also means the days of young Hyrule saw a mixture of Zonai architecture and the architecture we see around Hyrule now.
- This might also imply that the Dusk Claymore is older than the Kingdom of Hyrule, as it was seemingly moved not long after the Imprisoning War. This assumes, of course, that the existence of the sword as it is in the game is meant to be taken as canon. There could be some debate on this topic, however.
Some arguments that could be made against these conclusions:
- The use of the modern Hyrulean might imply quite some time has passed between the building of the Sage Temple, then the Thyphlo Ruins after, allowing time for the language to evolve during that time.
- "Modern" Hyruleans might have merely repurposed old ruins, and Kazul came to the wrong conclusion about the ruins being built after the Imprisoning War. The existence of the 7 spots outside the ruins suggest otherwise, however.
- One could argue this is all just a fun side quest for a legacy weapon and really bears no meaning on the story or lore. Or, the sword itself is no longer meant to reference the Six Sages from TP, and now has a new existence with a different history.
By the way, if you do not know what the modern Hyrulean text in Botw/Totk is meant to look like, here is a link
) to the lists of written Hylian found across the games.
In the older games, like OoT and WW, the written text was based off Japanese, but TP changed it to be based of English and so far it has stayed that way. There are some pretty big differences between the older written texts, but SS, LBW, TFH, BotW, and TotK feature very similar texts across the board. The SS script is not identical to the LBW/TFH/BotW/TotK text, but a lot of characters strike a similar appearance, if they are not identical already.
By the way, fun fact, but you can also see the Gerudo script in Totk as well, and it is the same script from OoT. The Gerudo script is and always has been based off English. Modern Gerudo can read older texts perfectly fine. Link also seems capable of reading Gerudo as well, since he can read the signs across town (unless the Gerudo use both Gerudo text and Hyrulean text and we just can't tell).
Personally, I don't think the actual visual looks of the texts mean much in terms of lore, considering how radically they have changed over the years. But that is just my own opinion.
Anything more to add or did I miss something? Let's discuss! Dissecting lore is always fun!

2023.05.30 19:21 peop1 A humble attempt to put the vaccine injury hypothesis to rest
I've been seeing a lot more of it here. A lot more. And I know that this is going to garner me a lot of ill-will. But I can't sit back and watch disinformation overrun a community as important as this one. So here goes nothing.
First, I have a question for the vaccine injured. Why can’t any of you point me to a single shred of evidence other than your lived experiences? Ever wonder why not a single immunologist has come out to champion your hypothesis? (Which, btw, more often reads like received fact than theory when you bring it up. You know
, do you? Interesting, cause there is a lot we still don't know about SARS CoV-2. Interesting that this should be suddenly official, even in the absence of any scientific corroboration).
For years, people swore that ulcers were caused by stress. It made sense. It always seemed to be worse when they were stressed. They were wrong.
, people swore that miasma - bad air - caused cholera. It often happened when the air was thick. It made a lot of sense. They were wrong.
, people swore that impiety was behind their illnesses. In Europe, they relied on prayer to get better. In the Americas, ritual sacrifices. It seemed to help. They were wrong.
Might you be wrong?
nO tHiS hAs tO bE vAcCiNe rELaTeD
it be vaccine related? Why can’t it be due to an unbelievably infectious, often asymptomatic, bat-borne, immune-depleting and metabolism-dysregulating novel SARS coronavirus that 90% of everyone caught as of the onset of Omicron?
bEcAuSe mY sYmpToMs sHoWeD uP aFtEr gEtTiNg tHe jAb!!1!
Yes, that may very well be. And if you catch a common cold now, it will likely knock you clean out - that’s what SARS CoV-2 does
. It hay-wires our immune system and causes mad inflammation.
aNd sO dOeS tHe vAcCinE!
Evidence or STFU. I mean it. What part of mRNA vaccines could even do
that? Do you even know? I ask again: Any immunologists in the house to back you up? No. Wanna know why
? Because it makes no physiological goddam sense!!!!
yOu’Re jUsT gAsLigHtiNg mE!
Sure, just like I gaslight Goop, Dr Oz, Dr Phil and bloodletting. This is not gaslighting, friend. This is calling out bullshit. There is a BIG difference.
I am not CLAIMING you aren’t sick. I’m not claiming your symptoms didn’t appear after your jab. If COVID messed up your immune system as much as it did mine, it isn't impossible that the vaccine might have triggered some dormant sequelae. We do not know
. We do
know that arteries stiffen and the brain is impaired after even mild COVID infections. You might not notice that immediately, if at all. So no, I'm not claiming the vaccine didn't put you in a bad spot. But I AM claiming that your need
for your Long COVID to be entirely
vaccine-induced is highly
NOTHING in the medical literature even HINTS at the possibility of these vaccines being able to trigger LC - not without COVID first doing the very
If I’m wrong? I'd be stunned, because it would mean we discovered some entirely new and unheard of pathway. It'd be revolutionary, tragic, counter to everything we know. Impossible? No. Highly
unlikely? Uh, yeah. If I'm wrong, I'll owe you a sincere apology. But if you’re
wrong? You’ve been contributing to the paranoid anti-science populism that’s been leading us off a cliff since Andrew Wakefield's fabrication about Autism.
Here's an article of interest for you, published a little over a month ago in that same tabloid rag Wakefield published his lies in, the Lancet: Confronting the evolution and expansion of anti-vaccine activism in the USA in the COVID-19 era
00136-8/fulltext). It's important reading. Cause yeah, the Lancet published Wakefield's original sin. But they also retracted it. That last part is kind of important. It's called science. Half the world simply never got the memo.
The truth matters. I mean the ACTUAL truth. Not RFK Jr's ill-informed, uneducated gut feeling.
I get it, you’re angry. I’m angry too. WTF is this life I’ve been left with? This isn’t living! So yeah, if I thought some unscrupulous megacorps had willfully maimed me, I’d be on the warpath too. The US is broken in more ways than one. I get that too. I don't live there, but I can see how it's messing with you. You can't trust anyone
anymore it seems. Especially not for-profit healthcare, for-profit politics, for-profit prisons - hell even your biggest Churches
are for-profit. (But ooooooooh socialism. That's the real
evil, right? I digress.)
I'd be angry too if I thought Bill Gates and Purdue Pharma had done this to me. But I’d need proof. Cause that’s how I roll. Not circumstantial evidence, not just a series of coincidences, not a plethora of official looking threads from "the ethical doctor" or that retired British nurse who passes himself off as an MD (because of his PhD in education) and speaks so well
with his underlining of bullet-point print-outs while going off on unsubstantiated tangents (Ivermectin, anyone?)
No, I'd want Proof. With a capital P. Cause them be some mighty big claims with some mighty big implications you been making at every fucking chance you get
Give me more than old wives tales. Give me mechanisms underlying your injury. Cause we're getting a pretty good idea of the mechanisms underlying mine, and the vaccine simply can't do that
. Even at the best of times, these vaccines' efficiency wanes in a matter of weeks. But they crippled you? Damaged your endothelium? Really?!
Give me some molecular biology. So far, all I see is your personal story, an army of Twitter trolls, a popular and well-orchestrated right-wing narrative, and a few rogue MDs who can’t point to a single shred of hard evidence. I see tarot cards. Not good enough.
We are at war
. COVID is the enemy, NOT Moderna and Pfizer, slimy as they may be.
I got jabbed and boosted. I also got COVID. Guess which one fucked me up? Wait - don’t tell me. I already know what you’re going to say.
And it’s really starting to piss me off.
We are all Long haulers here. How we got here should matter less than how we get out.
We can lynch the Wuhan lab techs and Moderna miscreants if and when it comes to light that there was an international conspiracy. But we have nothing
to gain from that sort of conjecture now. Those doctors, researchers and pharmaceutical companies you so love to hate on? We’re gonna need their help if we’re to beat this thing. And I don't know about you, but getting healthy again supersedes everything else in my book.
It also requires trusting the science. It’s evolving, it’s imperfect, but it’s better than trusting in your horoscope to tell you what to expect. You're being played, friend. And not by tHe mEdiCaL eStAbLiShmEnT. They are late to the game and have been far too dogmatic regarding Long COVID, but there is a quantum leap
between that and thinking that they know the vaccines are dangerous and are pushing them nonetheless. My partner outranks all of us, medically. She got jabbed, boosted. She's never had COVID. She's fine. Oh, and she also understands how vaccines work. Fundamentally. Deeply. Intimately. So yeah, I trust her 30 years and 50 000 hours of training more than your "dO yOuR oWn rEseArCh".
Oh and for the record? She's as pissed off as anyone by the "vax and relax" shift in public health policy (pushed by McKinsey Consulting, no less), because the vaccines were not good enough. Masking, ventilation, testing and isolating the sick was the only safe approach. But it wasn't convenient. So vax and relax it was and here we all are. Still in the grips of a disabling disease but with a society in deep denial about the risks of getting infected. As always, humans going the easy route instead of the right one. We are not super-fans of how COVID has been handled. Quite the opposite. But again, there is a leap between that and the utter disregard for all evidence on any given subject.
Do I also need to explain to you how the earth is not flat? Or do you still trust experts' take on that? Cause this is the same. Damn. Thing. This is like asking how climate change is a thing if it still snows in January. You're just indicating how out of your depth you are and making logical-sounding conclusions based on a faulty understanding of the underlying science. And more and more people are buying into it. To succeed, liars don't need to convince you of their lie, they only have to make you doubt the truth. FoxNews, Facebook and now Twitter broke America by profiting off of that business model. "Engagement", they call it. And nobody is pushing back.
You're being played alright, but it's by the same charlatans that feed the Q-Anon pedophile myth and Great Replacement dog whistle. They don't trust anybody, cause everybody's in on it. Right? Wrong. They're just pining for attention, cash, influence, petty power. At the expense of their hapless followers.
It's unfortunate that you find the timing of your onset suspect. I’ve been looking - hard - for credible evidence about what you claim. It's just not there. Educated guesses are welcome: there's a lot we still don't understand about this disease. But educated guesses require a minimum of education
. You can’t just throw around the words “spike protein” and call it a day. There is no run-away replication from a vaccine. That’s not how they work
bUt eVeN dR VaUngH sAiD
Was that before or after he charged you 1000$ for a treatment that's costing me 45$ based on readily available and entirely generic anticoagulant drugs? Before or after he said masks were crippling kids? I'm grateful he's making TT available to people. I'm not impressed by his ethics, lack of rigour, and sales pitch. No more than by IncellDX for that matter. Great business model. Important service. Highly
I'm on TT because of the science underlying it. It's still just a hunch, but a good one. So we're trying it. Vaccine injury though? That's not based on a hunch - it's based on rumour. Fear. Distrust. Lies.
That echo chamber is no different than any other hysteria - in the absence of understanding, we revert to superstition. And vaccine hesitancy is based on one incredibly damaging myth that is spinning out of control. Even here. And that worries me for the future. Vaccines are likely going to be our only way out of this pandemic. If it's sterilizing and not everyone needs to be jabbed to be safe? I'll care not at all that your paranoia made you put your life at risk. If it's one that requires a minimum amount of adoption to work? People are going to have to have a serious sit-down. I'm tired of other people's ignorance putting my loved ones at risk. *Insert obligatory reference to the Climate Crisis*. If everyone knew the science of what's coming (soon), they'd be a lot more motivated in acting, aggressively, immediately, collectively. The truth matters.
So yeah, this post is going to make a lot of suffering people angry. And that sucks. But it's a helluva lot better than just letting anti-science disinformation keep gaining ground, post by post, comment by comment. Someone has to fight back and scientists are always too incredulous to react: "do people actually believe this nonsense?" They do, Doc. They really do. And they've become too scared of the backlash to speak out.
Mods, you’re going to have to take a stand at some point. There are enough haunts for conspiracy nuts on Facebook, Twitter, Discord and Reddit. I came here for help. For moral support, for potential treatments, for peer review. By peers that have better judgement than to just assume a vaccine they don't understand is what plunged them into hell and then agitate against hard facts.
That misguided agitation does not bring me comfort. It makes me despair. Science is our only hope and here we have a growing segment of our community dismissing the science in the name of anecdote and political bias. You think the vaccine did this to you? You're entitled to your opinion. You're not entitled to spreading lies as though they were hard fact
. At least have enough humility to qualify your broad statements with "I worry that" or "is this even possible".
To those activists who insist on doubling down, give me some valid authoritative medical evidence or STFU. I can be swayed, but not by rants and baseless supposition.
We’ve got some serious work to do and your misdirected rage is not helping.

2023.05.30 19:11 lightning2183 Judgment Day as Metaphor
If James Cameron really does decide to move forward with his reformulation of the Terminator franchise, I think there is the strong possibility that he actually might take this new vision and explore it in the context of the Classic Future War, subverting it in ways we don't expect.
He said that he wants to explore the AI side of things. He once mentioned, right before Dark Fate's release, that he had always been interested in doing a Terminator film set in the Future War but he would've done it very differently from Salvation.
I could potentially see him explore the "transhuman" angle, where Skynet and its human collaborators try to build a machine run utopia, a world without pain, suffering, or fear.
Skynet would have evolved into becoming an overarching consciousness, so to speak. And the only hope left for mankind is to to transcend the flesh and connect to the Skynet hive mind using new, cybernetic bodies to which the "soul" is transferred to, so to speak. Think of the original Project Angel subplot from T4, but done much better and without hybrids.
In order to do this, I think it would be wiser to shift the classic mythology toward that of an alternate history, with Judgment Day as this metaphorical anchoring point in the past that we never really see, but about which there are numerous legends and myths. In 2029, the consensus is that some cataclysmic event took place in the past, after which the machines rose up to create a new order.
If you think about it, the only reliable information about the Future that Sarah has came from Kyle Reese, and that information is really based on only one, specific narrative.
Maybe the reality about Judgment Day is far more complicated than we initially thought. Maybe the events surrounding it are a mystery even to the survivors. Some think it was an inside job. John and Tech-Com claim Skynet was behind it, while others think mankind succumbed to its deepest vices and only Skynet can save mankind from itself.
The key here is really to submerge audiences in this bizarre, alien world of the Future War, and I think Cameron's work on Avatar has prepared him for just that. If he makes this film by 2029, rather than be an actual depiction of our present the way T1 and T2 were in their time, this film would be an inversion of our reality.
EDIT: With this approach, John Connor's struggle will be given an entirely new dimension, not to mention everything we thought we knew about the first 2 films.
Skynet's proponents can even ask the question, is John Connor a messiah or a mad man?

2023.05.30 19:09 CocoLenin The Greatest Whig - The Presidency of Winfield Scott
The Presidency of Winfield Scott
Winfield Scott was a distinguished American general who served in three wars and was the Whig Party’s presidential nominee in 1852. He defeated Democrat Franklin Pierce in a close election, becoming the 14th president of the United States. He was known as Old Fuss and Feathers for his insistence on proper military etiquette, and as the Grand Old Man of the Army for his long and illustrious career.
Scott inherited a nation divided over the issue of slavery, which threatened to erupt into civil war. He also faced challenges from abroad, such as the Crimean War in Europe and the expansion of British and French influence in Asia and Africa. Scott’s presidency was marked by his efforts to preserve the Union, promote American interests overseas, and reform the military and civil service.
Some of the major events and achievements of Scott’s presidency were:
- The Compromise of 1853: Scott supported the compromise brokered by Senator Henry Clay, which admitted California as a free state, abolished the slave trade in Washington, D.C., enacted a more stringent Fugitive Slave Act, and organized the territories of New Mexico and Utah without restrictions on slavery. The compromise temporarily eased sectional tensions, but also provoked resistance from abolitionists and pro-slavery extremists.
- The Gadsden Purchase: Scott approved the purchase of a strip of land south of the Gila River from Mexico for $10 million in 1854. The land was intended to facilitate the construction of a southern transcontinental railroad, which Scott hoped would foster economic development and national unity. The purchase also increased American influence in Central America, where Scott supported the construction of a canal across Nicaragua.
- The Ostend Manifesto: Scott disavowed the secret diplomatic document drafted by American ministers in Europe in 1854, which proposed that the United States should acquire Cuba from Spain by force if necessary. The document was leaked to the press and caused an international outcry, especially from Britain and France, who opposed American expansionism in the Caribbean. Scott declared that he had no intention of annexing Cuba or interfering with its sovereignty.
- The Kansas-Nebraska Act: Scott opposed the controversial act passed by Congress in 1854, which repealed the Missouri Compromise of 1820 and allowed the settlers of Kansas and Nebraska to decide whether to allow slavery in their territories. The act sparked a violent conflict between pro-slavery and anti-slavery factions in Kansas, known as Bleeding Kansas. Scott sent federal troops to restore order and protect free-soilers from attacks by border ruffians from Missouri.
- The Crimean War: Scott maintained a policy of neutrality during the war between Russia and an alliance of Britain, France, Turkey, and Sardinia over the control of the Black Sea region from 1853 to 1856. He resisted pressure from some Whigs and Democrats to intervene on behalf of Russia or Turkey, arguing that American interests were not at stake and that involvement would risk war with Britain and France. He also offered humanitarian aid to both sides and mediated a peace settlement at the Congress of Paris in 1856.
- The Perry Expedition: Scott supported the naval expedition led by Commodore Matthew C. Perry to Japan in 1853 and 1854, which opened Japan to trade and diplomacy with the United States after more than two centuries of isolation. Scott saw Japan as a potential ally and market for American goods in Asia, and hoped to counterbalance British and French influence in the region. He also encouraged Perry to establish friendly relations with China, Korea, and other Asian countries.
- The Civil Service Reform: Scott initiated a series of reforms to improve the efficiency and integrity of the federal government. He appointed qualified and honest men to public offices, regardless of their party affiliation or political views. He also introduced competitive examinations, merit-based promotions, and regular inspections for civil servants. He reduced corruption, patronage, and nepotism in the administration, earning him respect from both Whigs and Democrats.
- The Military Reform: Scott reorganized and modernized the U.S. Army, which had grown outdated and inefficient after the Mexican-American War. He increased its size, improved its training and equipment, established new branches such as engineers and cavalry, created a professional staff system, and revised its regulations and tactics. He also promoted scientific research and innovation in military affairs, such as steamships, telegraphs, balloons, rifles, and artillery. He made the army a model of discipline and excellence for other nations.
- The Tariff of 1853: Scott supported a moderate increase in tariff rates to protect American industries and raise revenue for the federal government. He also favored a flexible tariff system that would allow the president to adjust rates according to changing economic conditions. The tariff was opposed by some southern Democrats who feared it would hurt their agricultural exports, but it passed with the support of northern Whigs and Democrats who benefited from the protection of their manufacturing interests.
- The Homestead Act of 1854: Scott signed into law the Homestead Act, which granted 160 acres of public land to any citizen or intended citizen who settled on it for five years and improved it. The act was designed to encourage westward migration and settlement, as well as to provide opportunities for land ownership and economic independence for farmers, workers, and immigrants. The act was opposed by some southern Democrats who feared it would create more free states and reduce their political power, but it was supported by northern Whigs and Democrats who saw it as a way to promote democracy and social mobility.
- The Transcontinental Railroad Act of 1856: Scott approved the construction of a transcontinental railroad that would connect the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, facilitating trade, travel, and communication across the continent. He also endorsed the use of federal land grants and subsidies to private companies that would build and operate the railroad. The act was opposed by some southern Democrats who feared it would favor northern interests and bypass their region, but it was supported by northern Whigs and Democrats who saw it as a vital national project that would enhance American power and prestige.
Scott’s presidency was widely regarded as successful and popular among most Americans. He strengthened the Union, enhanced American prestige abroad, advanced American interests overseas, improved public administration, reformed military affairs View Poll

2023.05.30 19:01 Sigma-Alpha_2 [Video Games] A history of the Legend of Zelda history
If you are into the video game scene, you'll likely have been inundated recently with people talking about latest game in the long-running Legend of Zelda
franchise, Tears of the Kingdom
, which came out earlier this month. It has become a commercial and critical hit, so much so that it is their fastest selling game ever
. The Zelda
series is over 35 years old now, with the most recent Switch titles being its most successful entries. Because of this, there are many players who are only vaguely aware of what came before. How do all the other titles fit together? What is the canonical history of the kingdom of Hyrule? Why are there all these nerds who grumble to themselves about "timelines" and "Historia"? Let's go back and walk through the games as they released, looking at how each entry adds new lore to the series and what it does, or doesn't do, to place itself amongst the history of its peers. I do spoil some of the endings and events for the older games, and I do mention some plot points that in Tears of the Kingdom
. Everything I mention there happens within the first few hours, and I try to give warning that it's coming, but if you want to know nothing about the game at all, you've been warned.
As you'll soon see, the timeline of the games is anything but cut and dry. I'm going to try and discuss some of the issues of putting them in a neat order, but there have been lots of theories over the years that get into the minutia of different things. For those curious, this
is a good list of some of the now defunct ideas. I would also like to apologize ahead of time for the large amount of abbreviations used in this article.
In the beginning, things were pretty straight-forward. The first few games in the series were released in a time before elaborate plotlines were typical or even possible.
In 1986, Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda
(LoZ) for the NES. You play as Link, a vaguely elf-like collection of pixels as he travels the land of Hyrule to save its princess, Zelda, from the evil pig-like creature known as Ganon (or in this game, "Gannon"). With limited dialogue available, most of the plot is given to the player via the included instruction manual and through a paragraph that displays if you wait on the title screen for long enough
. The dynamic between these three characters will form the foundation for plots being used to this day. The game also introduces other series namestays, such as Death Mountain, some of the recurring bosses, and most notably, the concept of the Triforce, two triangle-shaped magical relics sought after by the characters. Only the Triforce of Power and Wisdom are described in this game, and Wisdom has been broken into several pieces for the player to reassemble. The game was a success and our series has a solid foundation to proceed.
In 1987, Nintendo released a sequel, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
(AoL) also for the NES. This title is a direct sequel to the first game, picking up with Link as he again travels Hyrule to awaken the comatose Princess Zelda
. Except... it's not the same Zelda as the first game. This is apparently the very first Zelda, who was put into a magical slumber in an age long past, and has been stored in a back room until someone will come around and wake her up. This game introduces the third piece of the Triforce, that of Courage, and features actual townspeople you can talk to as you try and stop Ganon's followers from reviving him. While the addition of a second Zelda is a bit odd, these two games fit together well enough, although if you were hoping that long lost Zelda would be mentioned later on, you might not want to hold your breath.
In 1991, A Link to the Past
(ALttP) was released for the Super Nintendo. With greater processing power came greater graphical fidelity (quote Uncle Ben, year unknown), and with it a greater possibility for story telling. Link, now equipped with pink hair, must rescue the seven Maidens, descendants of a group of sages who sealed Ganon away in an "Imprisoning War" to an alternate Sacred Realm to stop him from obtaining the Triforce. Princess Zelda is one of these maidens, and Link must travel back and forth between the normal Light World and Ganon's now corrupted Dark World to stop him. More long-running elements are introduced, most notably Link's Master Sword, a magically empowered blade that has the power to defeat evil. You may notice that this game presents a number of contradictions to the NES games. For one, this game seems to completely contradict the events of the first game with Link, Zelda, and Ganon having completely different backstories. This game sets the precedent that there are multiple Ganons, Links, and Zeldas throughout history, with the latter two rising up to stop Ganon whenever the need arises. The Link we played as in the NES games is not the Link in ALttP
, and in fact this game is set far before that game, with Ganon being defeated by the end of the game and the Triforce still unbroken and together. Fine, okay, that's potentially a bit confusing, but with only three games, it's not too much to keep track of.
Not wanting to be left out, the Game Boy got its own Zelda game in 1993, Link's Awakening
(LA), which was re-released in color in 1998 and fully remade for the Switch in 2019. This game is the first to not take place in Hyrule, instead Link is traveling by ship and is caught in a storm, waking up on Koholint Island. Given that it doesn't take place in Hyrule, some of the typical elements are missing. The Triforce does not appear, Zelda is only briefly alluded to, and Ganon only appears as a form taken by the final boss. This does imply that this Link is familiar with Ganon, and while the game itself is vague on which Link this is, it's generally assumed that this is the same Link from ALttP
, travelling after saving Hyrule. For the sake of brevity, we'll skip the discussions about this title, as there's much more to get to.
For those keeping track, the chronology of the games, as far as we understand it, looks like the following, with the left hand side being the earliest entry.
ALttP/LA - LoZ/AoL
Things start getting complicated.
While the first four games follow each other well enough, the intra-game connections aren't super important, and so far not too hard to follow. This will begin to change with 1998's Ocarina of Time
(OoT) for the Nintendo 64. OoT
does a lot to further the lore of the series, giving a backstory to the Triforce, establishing Ganon's human form as Ganondorf, King of the Gerudo people, who are also established in this game. Familiar Hyrule races such as the Gorons, Kokiri, and Zora (this type
, not the enemies
). The Triforce returns, but each of the three pieces is given to a different character; Courage to Link, Wisdom to Zelda, and Power to Ganondorf. This game also seems to represent the Imprisoning War described in ALttP
with Ganon being sealed by Zelda and six sages into the Sacred Realm, to end his reign of terror. There are some differences however. The sages are a diverse collection of characters, not a group of bearded old white guys as previously depicted, and Ganon is sealed away as Ganondorf and not as his pig-like form. These are minor discrepancies however, and for the most part OoT
seems to set itself as the earliest yet game in the series (the towns in Zelda II
also share their names with the sages, a cute homage that in-universe reinforces the idea that they were named after famous heroes).
There are two features of Ocarina of Time
that makes its entry into the series more complex than the games that came before. Firstly, the game features time travel, which naturally introduces another layer of complexity. You play as Link as a child at the start of the game, but at roughly 1/3rd the way through the game, Link is placed into magical stasis for seven years, awakening as an adult into a ruined future. While you can return to the child period in the game, the main plot has Link attempting to defeat the evil powers in the future. It begs the question to what is the actual canon ending to the game. You defeat Ganondorf in the future and seal him away, with the end credits showing the characters you've met celebrating his defeat. However, the adult Princess Zelda sends Link back to the past to "relive his childhood", with the final shot showing the child Link and Zelda. It's left ambiguous which time period continues forward, or if child Link was able to avert the future after all. The other important thing to know about OoT
is that it was incredibly popular. The game was the best selling Zelda game for nearly two decades after its release, and is often cited as one of, if not the best game ever made. This popularity will lead Nintendo to incorporate more direct references and allusions to this game in future entries, which I'm sure won't complicate things for us.
The year 2000 gave us the direct sequel to OoT
, Majora's Mask
(MM), also for the N64. The "Child Timeline" as it is now called is confirmed to continue, with the entirety of the game focusing on the child form of Link as he travels to the parallel world of Termina. Like Link's Awakening
before it, MM
doesn't impact the timeline too heavily due to being set in Termina, but it does confirm that Link remained as a child rather than return to his slumber following OoT
. It might be fair to assume that Link did something about Ganondorf before leaving for Termina, but that isn't explicitly shown.
In 2001, a pair of games were released for the Game Boy Color, Oracle of Seasons
and Oracle of Ages
(OoS and OoA respectively, sometimes collectively called OoX). These games are notable for being developed by Capcom, not Nintendo, and they form a pair; when you finish one of the games you receive a password that transfers some of your items to the other game. Upon finishing both, a special epilogue is unlocked completing the story. Both of these games take place outside of Hyrule, with Seasons
taking place in the land of Holodrum and Ages
in Labrynna. The evil forces in these games are vaguely working together to revive Ganon, who is stated to have been defeated by Link previously. The developers decided that was enough backstory and thus didn't bother to specify which
Link this actually was. The game is very similar to Link's Awakening
in gameplay and style, but the events are also vague enough to be placed after the original game, Majora's Mask
, some previously unseen Link, or maybe completely non-canon entirely given the involvement of Capcom. It's now generally accepted that this is the same Link as ALttP
, with the events of Link's Awakening
following these games, but for many years their placement in the timeline was up in the air.
Accepting the Oracle
games as following ALttP
, our timeline up to this point looks like this:
OoT/MM - ALttP/OoX/LA - LoZ/AoL
We now enter the Very Messy Time.
We are now eight games and 15 years into the series, and while things haven't been super clear up until now, it arguably hasn't really mattered. The games don't really reference each other, and some haven't had much of a plot at all. With ever increasing technological advances, however, this is likely to change, and no game throws a bigger wrench into the whole chronology business like The Wind Waker
(WW). Released in 2002 for the GameCube, Wind Waker
takes place on the Great Ocean, a large body of water with some sparse islands occupying the landscape. It's revealed throughout the game that this is Hyrule, which was flooded by the Goddesses at the request of its King to stop the freed Ganondorf, since no Link was around to stop him. The islands seen in the game are the tallest peaks of the kingdom beneath. This poses quite a dilemma as, I'm not sure if you've noticed, Hyrule is typically not under miles of water, and continues to be this way at the end of the game. The game makes explicit references to Ocarina
, such as the sages being depicted in stained glass windows and Link being told his green tunic represents the clothing a previous hero wore. Even more confusingly is that this is stated to be the same Ganondorf from OoT
, not a reincarnation, freed from his prison. Given that ALttP
also featured the freeing of the imprisoned Ganon from OoT
, this game seems to completely fly in the face of the games that came before it, and if Nintendo had an answer, they were being tight lipped about it. Much of the debate regarding the "timelines" begins here, as the advent of the internet lead to lots of online debate about how WW
fits into the overall story of Hyrule. Nintendo seemed to finally be more focused on referencing the events of previous games, but managed to only confuse the matter even further. We'll get to some of the theories in a moment.
The next three Zelda games would be once again developed by Capcom, following their relative success with the Oracle
games. The first would be a port of ALttP
to the Game Boy Advance. Nintendo wanted to market the wired intra-connectively of the GBA, and so a special multiplayer-only campaign was added to this release, titled Four Swords
(FS). This game features a new villain, the wind mage Vaati, who is defeated by Link with the help of the newly established Four Sword, a magical sword which gives Link the ability to split himself into up to four copies. This sword exists mainly as an excuse to have several Links available for this multiplayer game, and the game itself gives very little context as to where it might fit into the timeline, if at all. Note, if you want to play this game for yourself, Nintendo hasn't made it easy for you. A special single player version, titled Four Swords: Anniversary
was available for free for six months in 2011-2012 for the DSi and 3DS, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the series, and also to try and help flagging sales of both systems. It was then removed for download until 2014, where it was again made available for four whole days
before again being delisted. The game has never been made officially available by Nintendo since then.
In 2004 a follow up to Four Swords
was released for the GameCube, titled Four Sword Adventures
(FSA). Again developed by Capcom, and again an excuse to show off the connectivity features of the GameCube and GBA, with Vaati escaping her imprisonment, requiring Link to take up the Four Sword again. Given the similarity between the games, it is assumed that FSA
is a direct sequel to FS
, featuring the same Link and Zelda. Ganondorf is also revealed to be behind Vaati's actions, but this one is pretty clearly a new reincarnation than before. The game's overworld also has similarities to that of ALttP
, implying that the titles take place close together. Ganon is sealed away at the end of the game, into the Four Sword rather than the Sacred Realm, but some theorized that this could be the same Ganon as ALttP
with a slightly altered backstory to accommodate for WW
, and the two games were often placed either preceding ALttP
or left out of the timeline altogether.
The final Capcom developed game would be 2004's The Minish Cap
(MC) for the GBA. The game establishes the origins of Vaati and sets itself as the first game in the Four Sword trilogy. The game also establishes the origins of the Four Sword, created throughout the game from the Picori Blade, a legendary sword used by, you guessed it, a hero from an age long past. We'll put that aside for now, as while MC
establishes itself as occurring far before FA
, it's unclear how far in the past it is. I mentioned that Nintendo often referenced OoT
in later games, and this game is no exception. Several townsfolk have the same name and appearance as NPCs in Ocarina
and Majora's Mask
despite being clearly separate characters. This is never explained and you either need to attribute it to the reincarnation effect prevalent in the series, or just to Capcom/Nintendo wanting to have familiar faces in their game.
While Capcom was busy adding their own confusing take on the timeline, Nintendo was hard at work doing the same thing. In 2006, Twilight Princess
(TP) was released for the GameCube and Wii, featuring a very much not underwater Hyrule. The Hyrule here seems to resemble that of Ocarina
, but with some of the landmarks slightly shifted (there's a whole line of reasoning trying to identify the games' orders based on the actual landmarks of Hyrule, but it's even hard to resolve than the plots). Link and Zelda are new characters, but Ganondorf is implied to be the same from Ocarina
, again. Through flashbacks we see Ganondorf on trial for unspecified crimes, but after he receives the Triforce of Power through vague means, he attempts to escape captivity before being sealed in the Twilight Realm, another new parallel world to Hyrule which seems distinct to the Sacred Realm. He eventually escapes and is defeated by Link, Zelda, and new character Midna, the titular Twilight Princess. Given that this game also makes some direct references to OoT
, this seems to directly contradict WW
, but all might not be lost. It was left vague as to which timeline was the canon ending to OoT
, and the combination of WW
lead to the fan theory that both
are actually canon and the timeline splits following Ocarina
. In the "Adult Timeline", where Link and Zelda seal Ganondorf away, he eventually escapes and Hyrule is flooded to stop him, eventually leading to his defeat in WW
. In the other "Child Timeline", Link returns as a child with the knowledge of the future and manages to have Ganondorf arrested, where he is sealed into the Twilight Realm following an attempted escape. TP
continues from here, and given Hyrule's much less wet state, most of the other games do as well. This raises the question about where those games fit in, but we'll get to that in a second.
Let me mention two more games before we look at the bigger picture. Two sequels to Wind Waker
were released on the DS in 2007 and 2009, Phantom Hourglass
(PH) and Spirit Tracks
is a direct sequel to WW
featuring the same Link as he fights the new villain Bellum, while ST
takes places roughly 100 years after WW
on New Hyrule, founded by the Princess Zelda of that time (any actual lineage between the two generations is annoyingly vague). It does feature a new Link and Zelda, but it's pretty explicitly a direct sequel to WW
and isn't too hard to resolve into the timeline.
Alright, let's go over what we have now, and try and put everything together. The facts we have are:
- AoL is a direct sequel to LoZ. There is a new Link/Ganon/Zelda and the Triforce is not only separated but broken. Ganon ends the game dead, and there's another Zelda lying around, don't worry about it.
- OoS, OoA, and LA are (to some debate) sequels to ALttP. There is a new Link and Zelda, but Ganon begins the game sealed in the Dark World, and ends the game dead. The Triforce is completely intact.
- MM is a direct sequel to OoT. There is a new Link/Zelda/Ganondorf and the game likely splits into two parallel timelines, one where Ganon is sealed in the Sacred Realm (Adult Timeline) and one where Link returns and lives as a child (leading into MM). In the Adult Timeline, the Triforce is split into its three components, in the Child Timeline it is assumed to be intact, as it is at the start of the game.
- PH and ST are sequels to WW. There is a new Link and Zelda, but a previous Ganondorf, directly stated to be the one from OoT. He was unsealed at some point in the past and ends the game dead/turned into a statue. The Triforce is completely intact, but Hyrule is under an ocean.
- MC, FS, and FSA are indirect sequels consistent with each other. There is at least two new Links/Zeldas (MC is definitely distinct from the other) and a new Ganondorf. He ends the game sealed in the Four Sword, the state of the Triforce is unknown.
- TP has no direct sequels. There is a new Link and Zelda, but Ganondorf begins the game sealed in the Twilight Realm and ends the game dead. The Triforce is split into its three components.
There were multiple theories at this time, with some arguing the 2D games were their own continuity separate from the 3D games, or that there were even more timelines than just two after Ocarina
, but one of the more previlent timeline orderings (and the one I favored) went as follows: OoT
is the first game in the series, and following its events, the timeline splits in two, the Adult Timeline following the world ruined by seven years of Ganon's rule, the other Child Timeline where his reign was avoided.
Adult Timeline: MC? - OoT - TP - MC? - FS/FSA - ALttP/OoX/LA - LoZ/AoL Child Timeline: MC? - OoT/MM - WW/PH/ST
The placement of The Minish Cap
is unknown. We know it takes place prior to Four Swords
, but whether it was before or after the timeline split isn't clear. The Ganon in ALttP
, who was originally meant to be the one in OoT
is now a completely different Ganon, who may or may not be the one in FSA
. For this reason, and many others, this remained one of the most popular ordering, but still heavily in debate.
Finally, some answers
The year is 2011 and Nintendo is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Zelda series. The main attraction is the release of Skyward Sword
(SS) for the Wii, which will usher in a brief but earnest period of actually caring about the timeline. SS
explicitly sets itself as the first game in the entire timeline, depicting the creation of the Master Sword and the cause for the perpetual reincarnation of Link, Zelda, and Ganon. The game takes place not on Hyrule, but on a series of floating islands above it called Skyloft. Skyloft was lifted into the sky by the newly established Goddess Hylia, to protect it and the Triforce from the forces of evil below, and sealed away their leader, Demise. Hylia herself decided to become the mortal Zelda. This new Link is forced to take up the Goddess Sword (which becomes the Master Sword) to save Zelda and defeat the freed Demise who, upon his defeat, decrees that he shall be reborn time and again to defeat the reincarnations of the hero and the Hylia and take over the world. It is the soul of Demise that is reborn as Ganon and has continued to plague Hyrule from then on. Like this concept or not, the game pretty explicitly places itself as the foundation of the series, and as the earliest entry in the timeline.
In addition to releasing Skyward Sword
, Nintendo released a companion book called Hyrule Historia
is mainly an artbook featuring concept art and documents from the 25 year history of the series. However, its main attraction for many people was the inclusion of an official, definitive ordering of the games from Nintendo themselves. So, how we do? Does our timeline(s) agree with Nintendo themselves? Well, while the general order was correct, Nintendo threw a curveball into everything by announcing that following Ocarina of Time
the timeline split into three
parts, not two. One following the Adult ruined world, one following the Child un-impacted world, and another... where Link died. That's right, despite not being seen, a canonical ending to OoT
is that Link died trying to defeat Ganondorf in the future and he was able obtain the combined Triforce. Nintendo explains that despite this, the sages were able to seal him away in the Sacred Realm anyway, but with the completed Triforce. For intents and purposes this is rather similar to the Adult timeline, but allows for the distinction between Ganondorf needing the Triforce in WW
and having it in ALttP
; not to mention that they both need to co-exist. Fans argued that a timeline based on the bad ending didn't seem terribly canonical, and also opened up a can of worms for every other game having its own canon Bad End. Other more minor discrepancies from our theory are present, most notably that Four Swords Adventure
is not a direct sequel to Four Swords
but instead takes place long after, following TP
are instead placed before OoT
in the unified timeline. Personally this is the one I have the most trouble with as there is nothing really linking FSA
to that timeline at all. In any case, here is the timeline as presented:
(Child Timeline) - MM - TP - FSA / SS - MC - FS - OoT - (Adult Timeline) - WW - PH - ST \ (Fallen Timeline) - ALttP - OoS/OoA - LA - LoZ - AoL
There you have it, Nintendo's official explanation for how three games can each be a follow-up to Ocarina of Time
. The Fallen Timeline inclusion lead to many a nerd grumbling on the internet, but this is the official order of events from Nintendo themselves, and they seem pretty dedicated to the idea of keeping the timeline neat going forward.
... Or do they. In 2013 A Link Between Worlds
(ALBW) was released for the 3DS. The game was designed as an indirect sequel to ALttP
with the overworld heavily inspired by that game. Despite the similarity, this is said to be a new Link and Zelda as they stop the evil Yuga from another parallel version of Hyrule, Lorule (how clever). Their eventual goal is to, you guessed it, free an imprisoned Ganon. This begs all sorts of questions. If this is a follow-up to ALttP
, why is there an imprisoned Ganon? Why is the Triforce split again? The explanation is that another Ganon was born between ALttP
and sealed away with the Triforce of Power, eventually leading to the events of this game. Even more confusingly, Nintendo released the Legend of Zelda: Encyclopedia
in 2017 where they placed ALBW
into the timeline. It fittingly goes between ALttP
, but at the same time decides that the Oracle
games no longer feature ALttP
's Link, but the one from ALBW
. This could be taken with a grain of salt though, as the book has some errors, and in other places even says it's the same Link as ALttP
, directly contradicting itself. I'm personally prefer to ignore it.
Nintendo also released Tri Force Heroes
in 2015 for the 3DS. It's in the same style as ALBW
and probably a direct sequel, but it's really goofy and there's barely a plot.
Back to the Future
This finally brings us to the present day. In 2017, Breath of the Wild
(BotW) was released for the Wii U and Switch. Despite spending a lot of effort cleaning up the timeline in their last 3D game, this title goes out of its way to completely ignore the question altogether. When asked about its placement, the canonical reply is that it takes place far in the future from the other games, in some vague era where the timelines either have converged or it's far enough to not really matter. In any case, don't worry about it. 10,000 years prior to the events of the game (ugh), great machines were built to assist with the defeat of Calamity Ganon. With the help of the Link and Zelda of their time, they succeed, with the Divine Beasts being left to decay over the millennia. 100 years prior to the game, it was predicted Calamity Ganon would return, so a new Zelda and Link (the ones in the game) begin to prepare for that day. When it eventually does arrive, it goes very poorly, with Link being placed into a century-long stasis to recover from his wounds and Zelda alone holding the seal containing Ganon. Link eventually wakes up just in time for the game to begin, and you defeat the Calamity. The inclusion of the Calamity being at least 10,000 years old puts this game insanely far into the future, and throws the whole timeline a bit out of wack. There are some other oddities too, such as the Temple of Time as it appears in OoT
being present, and the Rito being established in WW
as the successor race to the Zora, yet both co-exist here.
I'll spend a little bit of time talking about the newest game, Tears of the Kingdom
. I won't discuss anything you won't see in the first few hours, but if you want to be completely spared from spoilers, skip the next paragraph.
2023 saw Tears of the Kingdom
(TotK) for Switch, a direct follow-up to BotW
. At the start of the game, Zelda and Link discover the still-alive mummified body of Ganondorf, sealed away in an era long past and the cause of the Calamity. He is freed and Zelda is inadvertently sent back in time to meet with the very first king of Hyrule, which would place her between Skyward Sword
and Minish Cap
. Through flashbacks you see their attempts to stop Ganondorf before eventually just sealing him away. This would imply that there has been a sealed Ganondorf throughout most of Hyrule's history, even during periods where other Ganondorfs reigned. I won't say too much else for fear of spoilers, but I assume Link is able to defeat this Ganondorf once and for all (I actually don't know, I haven't finished the game yet).
To sum up, the Zelda series has gone through periods of relative attentiveness to the connections between games to directly ignoring they exist. While all this timeline theorizing took place, there was a camp that believed that the Legend of Zelda was just that, a legend, and that each game took place completely separately, except for any explicit direct sequels. This seems to be how Nintendo views the series. The plot inside of each game is focused on, but how it features together as a whole doesn't really matter to them, and even when they tried to more actively focus on it, they quickly gave up due to the pre-existing state it was in. We'll see if future titles will try and reconcile themselves better with the older games, or if this latest trend of just ignoring the timeline will be the norm going forwards.

2023.05.30 18:55 Randomuser1520 Brothers No More - 1867 (mod concept)
| || |https://preview.redd.it/pc631h69i13b1.jpg?width=819&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=298fa344f24aa4cbf3ab16422d30b6e63c8e4a5d Link to code 1 submitted by Randomuser1520 to thecampaigntrail [link] [comments]
Yesterday I had a post that got quite a bit of traction on here. The post revolved around the fact that despite countless alternate history mods being made, nobody has seriously pursued a mod that is about a potential Southern victory in the Civil War. So, I took some time and drafted up a code 1 as well as a written-out scenario for a potential mod series revolving around this timeline. As I am currently working on MacArthur 1952, I cannot make this right now but if nobody takes this offer, then I will try and make it happen. If anyone out there would like to use this code as well as the "lore" I will provide later in this post then you can do so without asking, this is open-source material!
The backstory behind this scenario is that in late 1862 Great Britain and France intervene in the Civil War and broker a peace deal between the Union and the Confederacy. Before you suggest that this is far-fetched, it nearly happened in our timeline. Lee was confident that if he could just threaten DC enough he could get Europe to intervene. I picked 1862 since that seems to be when the Union was at its worse and the Confederacy at its best. Thus, in this timeline, France and Britain stop the fighting around November or early December of 1862 with the Treaty of Paris (lol). The war is officially over and the Union is forced to recognize the Confederacy as an independent nation.
As soon as the war concluded, the Confederacy quickly sends troops to Mexico to aid in Napoleon III's conquest of Mexico. In return for helping the French, the Confederacy gets the Northernmost Mexican states as well as a strong ally in France. With the fighting now completely over, the Confederacy can focus on rebuilding its economy and establishing its presence on the global stage. https://preview.redd.it/giyxyg0bi13b1.png?width=1205&format=png&auto=webp&s=5f964fd0eee750ad2b453d0ec858e89c3bb2ba91
Contrary to popular belief I don't think the Confederacy would be in awful shape right away. It would have favorable relations with Europe since they were the ones who promoted its independence as a way to split up what they considered to be a rising threat. Thus, they would have access to the European markets to sell their cotton and other cash crops. They also would have been spared the heavy damage inflicted upon them by figures like Sherman in this timeline. So while it wouldn't have all the advantages the Union would, I believe at the outset of the nation's creation it would have a promising future.
The election of 1867 -
Realistically, if Lee wanted the Presidency, he could have it and face no real opposition. However, for the sake of this scenario, he does face opposition in the form of John C. Breckinridge. This would help highlight the immediate political divide in the Confederacy. As many of you said, one issue around writing an alternate Confederacy victory mod would be to not fall into the trap of just making everything about racism and slavery. The fact is right after the war, these issues would have been truly settled and thus nobody would need to talk about them. The main issues the parties would fight over are economic ones. In this scenario, I have Lee being a part of the "Reformed Whigs". The name doesn't matter, but in essence, this party would be the remains of the old Whig party forming a new party, similar to what Republicans did in the North. It would be the party of planters, businessmen, industrialists, and other more well-off folks. If you are interested in what this party's ideology might be like more in-depth simply look up the Cotton Whigs and that is pretty much how this party would like.
John C. Breckinridge meanwhile would lead the newly formed States' Rights Party. Obviously, this would be a continuation of the Southern Democrats. I could see this party headlining in a more populist direction similar to our own timeline in which they focus on economic reform, promoting more liberal economic policies instead of just protecting the status quo. It would obviously also focus heavily on state's rights. However, at the onset of the Confederacy's formation, I'd imagine these two parties would be fairly similar in ideology as the main concern would be the preservation of the country.
Lee wins the election. I'd imagine he picks another prominent former Whig such as Judah Benjamin as his VP. Breckinridge likely selects a war general to counteract Lee, but to no avail. Lee would not be President for long as he would pass away in 1870 due to a stroke. This would probably be a boon for him as it would remove him from politics and cement his legacy as a Southern legend. His successor would finish out the remainder of his six-year term. As I stated earlier, I'd imagine this time in Confederate history to be relatively stable and peaceful. https://preview.redd.it/870j5yrbi13b1.png?width=1217&format=png&auto=webp&s=4399cfd4df754aab428040f6d0642aea69cb8e19
The election of 1873 -
This time, I'd picture we'd see yet another Civil War veteran emerge as the frontrunner candidate for President. This time in Stonewall Jackson. Jackson would probably be pretty similar to Lee in many regards but this time he'd be running on the States' Rights ticket instead of Lee's party. His opponent would probably be someone like Alexander H. Stephens. While Jackson probably does not win by the same margin that Lee did, he most certainly wins by a very wide margin. The state of the country probably does not change much under Jackson. They continue to recover from the Civil War and build trading partners across the globe. Still a time of great optimism in the country. During this time, I'd imagine the CS might acquire Cuba.
The election of 1879 -
Now we getting to the point where things start to get interesting. On the Reform Whig ticket, we get James Longstreet, another general. For those who do not know, Longstreet was probably the most "sane" CS general when it came to civil rights. In real life, after the war had concluded he encouraged Southerners to accept the end of slavery and to support the Republican party. I think he gets elected and considering the time period we are in, ends slavery. You might be wondering how on Earth he manages to do that and to that, I'd simply say outside pressure. By this point, Europe was 100% behind the abolishment of slavery. If the Confederacy wanted to keep doing business with Europe, they would have to end slavery. Plus, they could get cheap labor elsewhere. Considering the fact that Brazil ends slavery in 1888, I'd picture the South ending slavery around the end of Longstreet's term, so 1885.
The election of 1885 - https://preview.redd.it/y3aohqlei13b1.png?width=1198&format=png&auto=webp&s=38fd4fb9c1970eeea5a1cb9367bc62bb8f273892
At this point, I feel the era of Civil War generals becoming President is over. Perhaps we get one more like Wade Hampton or something but that is about it. From here on out, actual politicians would be elected. While slavery has been abolished, the situation for black residents would not improve. The time period we are about to enter would be Jim Crow on steroids. Black folks being arrested for pretty much nothing and being used as cheap labor would be commonplace. Discrimination against blacks would be so awful it would make the Reconstruction era look like a true success. Terror groups like the KKK would basically be totally legal. So this raises the question, what do black residents do? The fact is there would not have been a flight to the North since that was now a separate country. During the Civil War, I believe the black population accounted for around 39% of the Confederacy. Assuming that percent holds that would mean that there was a very large black population in the Confederacy. So what do they do? I'd imagine they start their own communities. Build towns away from white settlements. Move out to the rural territories. And set up separate neighborhoods inside urban areas. I could even see this going as far as setting up their own micro economy and even having their own elections.
The election of 1891 -
Whoever is elected now would have a massive problem on their hands. Racial tensions would be at an all-time high with black folks setting up their own towns and economy. Meanwhile, groups such as the KKK would go out and terrorize these communities, killing many of their members. In response black settlements arm themselves to defend against these attacks. These attacks would escalate to the point in which it becomes an all-out race war. White para militias such as the KKK would fight against newly formed black para militias for unofficial control of areas of land. These conflicts would be based primarily in the Deep South as well as the territories out west. If you want a real-life example of what I'm referring to look up The Troubles in Ireland. This continues for quite some time until the CSA army steps in. However, I actually believe the black military would be able to muscle their way into getting some actual rights such as citizenship and the right to vote (maybe). https://preview.redd.it/ss4106byi13b1.png?width=1207&format=png&auto=webp&s=5cea7091b58a34f5e37853854a732f677aa9d176
The election of 1897 -
Because of the events of the past six years, I'd imagine the white population in the South would be quite terrified after witnessing a literal black military uprising. Because of this, they elect a firebrand. A populist who uses fiery rhetoric to crush dissent. They elect Benjamin Tillman of South Carolina. Tillman would unleash a wave of terror upon the black citizens. Lynching would increase, KKK terror attacks would increase, and racist laws would increase. Tillman would utilize the military to occupy black-owned settlements and disarm black citizens. While seems might seem bleak, black citizens would find a critical ally in the United States. Sensing growing cracks in their old states, the US funds these black militants, providing them with weapons, supplies, and training. Despite Tillman's best efforts, he would be unable to quell the rebellions. His administration would be viewed as an utter failure.
The election of 1903 -
Due to the failure of Tillman, the voters would be willing to elect a more moderate candidate. Someone who would be willing to quickly solve the uprisings. Whoever they elect would meet with black leaders and make some concessions. Perhaps some sort of voting bill is passed that does a little. Another aspect of Southern society at this time would be the extreme wealth inequality that would exist. The South would likely retain a very wealthy planter class that controls nearly all the land and has nearly all the wealth. It would be a handful of well-connected families such as the Lees and the Randolphs. Imagine the antebellum lifestyle on steroids with massive antebellum homes far larger and more grand than the ones in our timeline. This system would be quite similar to feudalism in Europe with the wealthy families being similar to that of royalty. The average citizen would probably own little and would either work in sharecropping or in some menial factory job.
The election of 1909 -
Tensions with the United States would be at an all-time high. By now, the US meddling in Confederate affairs would be common knowledge. War would certainly be on the horizon. So whoever is elected now would be someone who would be willing to rebuild and modernize the CS army and navy in preparation for the coming conflict. That conflict would come in 1914 with the outbreak of WWI. I'd imagine the CS would be loosely aligned with the Allied powers while the US would be loosely aligned with the Central Powers. However, neither side would really be committed to the two sides in Europe and rather simply the ongoing war as an excuse. The Confederate strategy would revolve around attempting to tire out the Union and waiting for Great Britain and France to finish the war in Europe and then come and aid them, hoping to acquire the region formerly known as the Upper South. The US meanwhile, would simply use overwhelming force to crush the South and reclaim its former lands. https://preview.redd.it/zr8htvyzi13b1.png?width=1207&format=png&auto=webp&s=61e5f0fd1301b9be5b2e26d431c308a486bcb8f7
The election of 1915 -
Realistically, this is where the South's journey ends. The war at the onset might go ok since the South would be on the defensive and make the invasion by the North incredibly difficult. They elect James K. Vardaman, a firey figure promising to crush the Yankees. Speaking of Presidents, the President of the US at this time is Teddy Roosevelt. It is hard to say how exactly Roosevelt would take down the South. I'd imagine he'd use the navy to put key ports such as Savannah and New Orleans in a chokehold, similar to the original war. Meanwhile, federal troops would travel down the Mississippi, splitting the nation in half. The main front in the war, however, would be NOVA. I could even see some sort of trench warfare beginning here. Another front would open up in Tennessee. I could see Tennessee falling quite early on, providing a base to launch a campaign in the Deep South.
The front in NOVA would be extremely bloody. Fighting would be similar to that of Western Europe, huge battles are mere feet of territory. This would go on for some time until the armies in the South, after conquering the Deep South marched northward towards Richmond. In a desperate attempt to salvage their country, the remaining Confederate forces set up fortifications at Richmond. The Siege of Richmond would mark the end of the war and the collapse of the Confederacy. Vardaman and the remaining Confederate leaders would be arrested thus concluding the 56-year-old experiment known as the Confederacy.
The Reconstruction of the South -
It is hard to say how someone like Roosevelt handles reconstruction. Unlike in our timeline, the Confederacy would have existed as its own entity for a good while. It would have developed its own culture and identity. I feel the way the government approaches reconstruction would be to present the Union as a force of good. They provide new social services, bring in new technology, and industrialize the South more. At the same time, they would be attempting to erase the Southern identity as quickly as possible. I feel in this timeline Confederate monuments would be removed rather quickly by the federal government and replaced with United States propaganda. I feel the main theme would be trying to act like this never happened. Just a blip in history. The other main issue would be the racial divide in the South. Since the South's secession, I'd imagine the North would have become far more invested in Civil Rights as a sort of "us vs. them" kinda thing.
So yeah, that took way longer than expected but here is what I feel this mod scenario would look like.
2023.05.30 18:52 Redditeur_en_cavale Games where geography matters
I'm looking for games in which the shape and features of the land have a meaningful impact on some aspects of gameplay. I'm not just looking for games with maps (i.e. Paradox titles, Total War) or games with cool landforms. I'm also less interested in 'terrain' than I am 'geography,' if that makes sense. Genre isn't a concern.
I'll give a few examples of geography 'mattering' in games I've played:
- In Valheim, I built a base at the mouth of a fjord. I could sail through that fjord to get across an otherwise humongous continent. The base was extremely convenient due to its specific geography.
- In Cities: Skylines, there is meaningful choice about how to use a scarce waterfront. Roads/rail need to agree with the terrain, etc.
- The Civ series is pretty obvious. Civ V probably was the most "geography matters" of them all.
- I have mixed feelings on RTSes; I'm less interested in tactical decisions involving terrain than I am strategic decisions involving geography. I'm open to being convinced by a sufficiently "terrain matters" game tho. Something more than "there's water, so I'm going to build a fishing economy." AoE4's river crossing maps get the closest to scratching the itch from what I've played.
- edit: I'll put Kenshi here because I know someone's gonna recommend it lol. "Where" is probably the second most important thing about building a base in Kenshi after "when."
Kind of an open-ended question, so I'm open to out-there answers.

2023.05.30 18:43 Asad_Farooqui Switch games with handdrawn art styles you could recommend?
I’ve been playing a good amount of Shantae Half Genie Hero
to cool down in between TOTK sessions, and the 2D art is an absolute treat for the eyes (in more ways than one). The 2D animated portraits in Advance Wars 1+2 Reboot Camp
, done by the same developer WayForward, are also delightful paired with the funny dialogue exchanges. Although, plenty of people have expressed their grievances with the 3D style that the rest of the game goes for. As you can see though, different genres can still lend themselves to an art direction like this, and WayForward I feel is the prime example here.
Some others that look enticing to me based on their handdrawn styles include Streets of Rage 4
, brought to us by the same publishers as TMNT Shredder’s Revenge, and Chicory: A Colorful Tale
. I’ve also heard many wonderful things about Gris
and admittedly got emotional over the reveal of their next game Neva
. It’s just that I don’t really know what either play like at the moment. Of course stuff like Rayman Legends, Hollow Knight, and Cuphead should all go without mentioning in this regard.

2023.05.30 18:19 HokageEzio A great reminder on the various dreams of the Straw Hats, and some very solid anime filler content with an ever increasing production quality - Manga reader's first impressions on the anime - Zou Saga
| || | submitted by HokageEzio to OnePiece [link] [comments]
I occasionally see the criticism pop up that since the timeskip, many of the Straw Hats dreams have gone somewhat underdeveloped unless it is one of the ones that is constantly developed every arc (Luffy becoming Pirate King, Zoro becoming the World's Strongest Swordsman, etc.). I feel like the Zou Arc really fights back against that criticism. Even while being the least controversial post time skip arc (and an arc that was always beloved since it came out), I feel like it's still a little underappreciated how many great endgame Straw Hat moments were had in this arc in reference to the development of their dreams. I also think the uptick of the anime's quality continues to show itself more and more, with great anime filler and an even better movie in Film: Gold.
I've been reading the manga weekly since Zou, but I've been trying to watch every piece of animated One Piece content before catching up to see how the anime has developed over time. My interest in how the current anime is being used and incorporating a bunch of stuff that isn't in the manga with a much higher quality level made me want to watch weekly, but I didn't want to just jump into the current anime. So I'm watching everything; movies, filler, specials, basically anything that's on MyAnimeList and that I can find online. Been an enjoyable experience, which you can read about in the previous threads:
Very quick watch for Zou, but some solid content there.
Also if anybody is curious why this is only about Zou it's because I'm using the official list from Library of Ohara based on Shueisha's official breakdown.
I like this breakout more because stuff like the Reverie gets included in one big Whole Cake Island arc with the countries coming together at the beginning and meeting at the end, which makes sense to me (similar to how the in between Acts in Wano are still part of the arc). As well as other various reasons.
Also this post would have approximately 900 entries if Zou, Whole Cake, and Wano were together. Cool? Cool.
Anime Arcs Silver Mine
Bartolomeo living the dream getting a filler arc with his idol
Apparently every filler villain in this series wants to be Akainu. This time it's smelting powers instead of heat, but with the same results. There was nothing incredibly bad in this arc, but I legit forgot plot points of it after a few episodes. Zoro brought up that he wanted to get revenge for something, and if they didn't throw in the flashback of the thing he was mad about from the first episode I would have been completely lost. And that's about the level of quality in this whole arc. Still not the worst arc cause Bartolomeo was really fun, but stuff with him was the only real saving grace imo. Zou
Again, love the ever growing relationship between Luffy and Lil Bro Momo
I've always been a big fan of Zou. It really feels like the entire story gets expanded for what will be the final stages, and there's a lot of big reveals as far as what the hell is next to come. That's not news though, I feel like Zou has always been the least controversial New World arc and everybody agrees it's pretty good. What stuck out to me going back through this is how many different Straw Hat dreams got some big moments, which I really liked. Chopper getting to save all the minks by making medicine was a nice moment for him, and I also really enjoyed him helping patch up Zunesha (more on that in a second). And Robin's excitement when presented with the Road Poneglyph and finding out what it meant, just a really happy experience. It's the happiest I can remember her when finding a Poneglyph since she found the one in Skypiea that made her realize it's not a lost dream. And Nami asking Inuarashi about what the Log Pose is pointing to and getting that affirmation that she's leading them on the right path, super cute moment. I feel like a lot of people criticize some of the Straw Hats with this idea that their dreams aren't really talked about much since the time skip, but to me this arc was really covering a bunch of those moments for them in really satisfying ways. Yeah we don't physically see Nami draw a map or anything like that, but we do get Robin giving her readings from the Poneglyph that can lead her down that path. I just really enjoyed all the little moments leading them on their individual dreams, especially for the more abstract ones like Chopper where none of us know how he's actually going to pull it off.
I also really enjoyed the filler episode right near the end of this arc. I brought up getting to see Chopper healing Zunesha, that was mostly done in the filler episode I'm referring to. Just really good canon filler that plugged up a lot of gaps from the manga. Carrot bribing the monkey so she could sneak on the ship, the minks all helping to make bandages for Zunesha's leg, Nami getting the map for Totto Land. One of those filler episodes where if somebody didn't tell you it was filler you'd have no clue, it just fit in perfectly. I feel like most of the filler in this arc was really well fitting, other than them randomly fighting bees for half an episode one time. Like I've been saying since the end of Dressrosa, if they do more filler like this then I really don't have an issue with the page count. I think content matters more than the amount of pages covered, and this was for the most part really good content.
As far as the story itself, the setup for Wano was great. Love seeing Momo really come into his own; he's turned into a great character in Wano and it really started around this moment here when he allies with Luffy. And the Raizo is Safe moment was really good, loved the adaptation. The music in the moment sounded very Wano/Japanese themed, which fit the moment. And frankly all of the music in this arc was great. You can always tell when one of these 200+ episode animes just got a new OST, because you start hearing new music super often. But no complaints there.
Specials One Piece: Heart of Gold
I swear this was integral to the plot. Don't fact check.
I just did not get into this one. The villain was pretty underwhelming (although I did like Zoro and Sanji's fights). And while I get it's filler so logic is somewhat out the window, the logic of this special goes super out the window. For example there's a part where Brook is needed to play the piano with very specific notes or he'll get shot with arrows. And he keeps messing up because there's a bit of the last page missing. And despite the fact that arrows pretty much do nothing to him, we instead get Robin and Chopper protecting him. Who for some reason are totally fine to use their Devil Fruits, which made me realize they're not even in Seastone cuffs but are for some reason just going along with everything. It took me until that point of the movie to even realize that. And I bring that up to talk about the next test they had, where they needed to use keys and had to find the right keyhole out of 17 (16 electrocute you, 1 doesn't). For some reason this is Nami's job, and Brook, Chopper, and Usopp have to hold the whole thing open so they don't get crushed. But if the electrocution doesn't kill you, and you're allowed to use devil fruits, why are they not using the person who can literally sprout clones and body parts? Obviously she'd still get hurt because she feels pain from the clones, but it makes way more sense than having almost half the crew crushed to death.
Again, it's a filler special episode so why am I even ranting about this. But stuff like that made me realize that the plot makes no sense and
that it took me that long into the movie to realize it makes no sense. The CP0 stuff was kinda interesting albeit they make them kinda look like scrubs, the Celestial Dragon stuff was fine too. And Chopper continues his reign as the greatest plug in One Piece, because he apparently just carries around every drug necessary with zero prep time. Also whoever animated this did it with one hand down their pants when they drew the Nami and Robin stuff. So kudos to them.
Wasn't a bad special, just kinda boring.
Movies One Piece Film: Gold
Nice to see Nami finally get to shine in a movie.
WOW. What an amazing movie. There were just so many things to love about this one. Where to start.
I'm always a fan of getting some unusual Straw Hat duos/trios. The usual groups are fun, don't get me wrong. But it's always nice to mix it up since they're such a big group. So having Franky running alone with Luffy for half the movie, I was a big fan of that. That's just not a usual pairing that happens, and the resulting dynamic from that was really cool.
I also enjoy when a movie villain doesn't feel unusually OP just for the sake of making the plot work, or like they're nerfing the main cast to make it a conflict. That's something that happens with a lot of shonen movies because they need the villain to be strong for an hour or so to make it work. When they revealed early into the movie that the gold confetti raining down actually makes it so Tesoro can control everything, I was in shock. It's a good plot device to neutralize the good guys that doesn't feel contrived, and it's also just really fucking smart. It immediately made Tesoro feel like a genuine threat.
And speaking of Tesoro, what a great villain. His backstory was crazy. The Celestial Dragon stuff is always a good way to get under the audience's skin, but the fact that he was a slave too and basically took the Sun Pirates approach of covering it? Huge surprise, not what I was expecting at all.
Also enjoyed Nami finally getting to fully participate in a movie. Her relationship with Carina was really cool, but the main thing that I liked was that she finally gets to play a big role in a movie. I wouldn't define her role in the last few movies as a damsel in distress. But it did kinda suck to see Nami taken out of the past few movies fairly early, where she doesn't get to play out a role like everybody else. Whether that's her being changed to a little kid or her getting kidnapped by Shiki in the first few minutes. This time Zoro gets to be the one separated from the crew, but you know Zoro will always get his moment eventually so it was fine. Again, just another really unique thing about this movie compared to the other ones.
This was just a really fun heist style movie, even with the typical planning montage. Very fun watch.
OVAs One Piece Film: Gold Episode 0
Speaking of animating with a hand down their pants, this was animated with the pen in their mouth. I guess these OVAs are all just going to be an excuse to show Nami and Robin half naked as many times as possible. In which case I say thank you. Also I knew Nami and Robin ran an elaborate gambling ring on the ship, I called that.
Fun short little video leading into the movie, like the Glorious Island one. We've upgraded from swimming to having the girls bouncing around playing volleyball. I look forward to the next one where they mud wrestle.

Actually a really well animated video for what is essentially just a company logo promo. Very cool art.

2023.05.30 18:13 MI6Section13 Quiller Pseudonyms
You may like this anecdote and The Burlington Files. George Segal starred in the Quiller Memorandum based on the spy thriller by Elleston Trevor (born Trevor Dudley-Smith aka Adam Hall). The name of the author of the Quiller Memorandum remains a tad mysterious but it is one of those under-rated thrilling espionage classics whether in writing or on the silver screen that deserve so much more adulation. If you liked Len Deighton’s masterpiece Funeral in Berlin or the Deightonesque Bill Fairclough’s epic raw and noir spy novel Beyond Enkription in The Burlington Files series, you are going to love the Quiller Memorandum and vice versa. Why mention Deighton and Fairclough you may ask?
Critics have described Fairclough who was an MI6 agent codename JJ (and one of Pemberton’s People in MI6) in real life as a posh Harry Palmer and his parents worked for MI1 in Germany in the aftermath of World War II just as Quiller did. Both Elleston Trevor and Bill Fairclough (aka Edward Burlington) used many pseudonyms. Given Bill Fairclough was a spy that is not unexpected but why Elleston Trevor (born Trevor Dudley-Smith) published over one hundred books under about a dozen nom de plumes remains a conundrum.
The Quiller Memorandum, Funeral in Berlin and Beyond Enkription are “must reads” for espionage cognoscenti who should of course know how they are linked! John Barry (composer of the Bond, Palmer and Quiller theme tunes) and Bill Fairclough both went to St Peter's School in York where Guy Fawkes and his co-traitors were educated which is why Fairclough's MI6 codename was JJ. For more see an astonishing brief News Article dated 31 October 2022 at TheBurlingtonFiles website.

2023.05.30 18:03 BetYourBuckeyes Skaven (and other Non-Order Tide) factions shouldn't suffer from reliability penalties for breaking treaties
This is my opinion, please feel free to share your opinion too!
This idea is mostly based around Skaven, but after some thought there are more factions that could be included.
The setting of the game is the end times. S**t hitting the fan kinda stuff right? So why are evil factions penalized for breaking treaties with Order factions.
Some treaties are there to give the player space before eventual battle, like Empire vs Sylvania, but some treaties could be meant to be broken. Please comment more examples if you think of them.
For me, a basic starter would be Tretch as his whole gimmick is betraying people and surprise wars. Skaven, as a race, are incredibly backstabbing, self-serving, and wouldn't hesitate to take out a rival even with a "treaty".
Beastmen, Norsca, Orcs (to name a few) are all highly aggressive. To me, it makes sense to lean into this and forgoe the penalty for them too. Some evil factions mentioned above have incentives to kill their "friends" and confederate them by surprise to reap the benefits.
I think this would also be a relatively easy change to make, as the attitude and actions for changing attitude would still apply. You could still be friends with the enemy and vice versa if you pump enough gold or declare wars together.
For me, it's about capturing the general chaos of the end times. No treaty means much when the world is about to end, and the evil factions would know this best.
Let me know what you think!
