The Legend of Zelda Timeline/Lore
Does Relics of Hyrule follow the Official Zelda Timeline? From the lore I uncovered, the events of Majora's Mask definitely happened, but the Lokomo Sword is still craftable with the Orichalcum Cog, what appears to be a Symbol of the Spirits. This would indicate that someone would have had to taken the Orichalcum Cog to Skyrim. Or... that what would have been "New Hyrule" in another timeline is actually Skyrim (The Snow Realm), Vvardenfell (The Fire Realm), Cyrodiil (The Forest Realm), and the river-like ocean south of Vivec City (The Ocean Realm). Notice the geological similarities in this image (didn't want to upload it to the wiki): http://i.imgur.com/X1a5yYC.jpg. Sure, the distances might be a litttle off, but that could be the cause of poor map-making skills. The northern oceans could have created the northern part of the river, slowly eroding a valley through the land, possibly initiated by a melting glacier. The ocean south of the Tower of Spirits looks like it could have drained off into the body of water around what is known as the Imperial City, and continued south until it left Tamriel. The deepest parts of the southern ocean could have stayed in place, to be joined by the advancing northen ocean. So was the Orichalcum Cog transported to Skyrim from "New Hyrule"? Or is Tamriel the "New Hyrule" that the Hero of Winds would have founded in a different timeline? Which Official Zelda Timeline does Relics of Hyrule follow, if any?
I know, it all seems very, very far-fetched, but it is an interesting brainchild. The geography seemed somewhat similar, so I took a shot at comparing the two worlds.
