The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past D&D map Dungeons & Dragons

Dungeons & Dragons was something I blatantly ignored for years, primarily because there was nobody to play with. Fast-forward a little bit, and I was finally able to experience the tabletop game with a group of friends. My campaign lasted a good few years, transporting me and my party to some imaginative story beats created by our wonderful Dungeon Master (DM). Since then, I have enjoyed both watching and playing D&D, as well as looking into one-shot ideas. One of my favorite video game franchises is none other than The Legend of Zelda, and Reddit user InspiraSean86 has recreated the Light World from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past as a custom D&D map.

This Light World Zelda map was done using an online cartography program called Inkarnate, which is often used by DMs to create maps for their D&D campaigns. The level of detail is extraordinary, featuring iconic locations such as Hyrule Castle, Kakariko Village, and even Death Mountain.

In the Reddit thread, InspiraSean86 promises that a Dark World map is in the works and will be posted in the near future. More D&D-themed Zelda creations are available to view on r/ZeldaTabletop, which compiles custom enemies, mechanics, and items for your campaign. Personally, I’d like to run a Zelda D&D one-shot in the future with my friends, so I could introduce all sorts of references from my favorite game series. You can also check out a feature that I wrote focusing on how the Zelda series could work as an RPG spin-off.
