The World of Demiari

The World of Demiari (c) Juliet A. Singleton 1998

In my fanfictions, Hyrule is part of a much larger world I created, called The Demiari which you can view on the map above. I wanted Link and Zelda to be able to interact to people from other kingdoms, something which was implied in the books and cartoons, with lands such as Calatia. The game designers obviously thought so too, when they added in extra worlds for Link to explore in the newer games like Holodrum and Termina.

I made this map, along with some summaries for each country below (in alphabetical order) so that readers can have a better understanding of the geography and people and places mentioned in my fanfictions.
