: Fates of the world, takes place after Link
defeated Majora's Mask and saved Termina. At that point, Link
realises this was no accident, that the mask had been set free on
purpose. He picks up the mask salesman's trail and chases him down. Link
fights him, but the mask salesman is
too powerful and manages to escape, not before giving Link
an insight on Hyrule's future. Link
blames himself for what he sees, and thinks of sealing away his
soul, like Rauru once did, never again to step foot upon the land
of Hyrule. He returns to Hyrule and tries to commit the deed, but
Navi the fairy returns and stops him.
carrying the seed of time disturbs
the ritual and instead of sealing Link,
it transports them 300 years in the past. Link
awakens next to the vast Hylian Forest
a bit off from a small town.
