LOZ Redux: Overworld by Deimos-Remus LOZ Redux: Overworld by Deimos-Remus
"Forests, lakes, mountains. Link must fight many enemies in a beautiful and natural world. We can be pretty certain, however, that some good-natured people living in these places will help him out and be his allies in his fight against evil."

-The Legend of Zelda Manual

The Overworld is the name given to Hyrule's countryside, littered with dense forests, vast lakes and rivers, harrowing mountain ranges and sprawling grasslands. The Overworld is an ancient place, scattered with an array of abandoned crypts and dungeons and sparsely inhabited by mankind, allowing forces of magic to thrive and dwell. However, Ganon's corruption has caused the lands to begin to decay and has severely weakened the myriad of spells and beings that once protected the land from such power. The mystical protective relic known as the Triforce has also been stolen, contributing to Hyrule's demise. Fairies have been driven out of their once lush and and beautiful forest homes, now reduced to stench-filled, rotting jungles with evil permeating from every tree. Lakes, rivers and ponds turn out tons of mysteriously dead fish, the dead rise from their slumber to roam the earth once more and worst of all, Ganon's army of beasts and demons have taken over the land, killing everything that gets in their way. Hyrule's Overworld has become a dark, dangerous and sinister place. One in desperate need of a hero.

A plague or a great disaster must really have happened to fill Hyrule up with so many graves.

If you can do a Zelda 1 map, that would be awesome.  Heck, if you do a Zelda 2 map, you'd be a legend (pun intended)!

I may do a map of the first game as one of the pieces, it'd be a lot of fun!
