The fighting in Skyloft continued as the trainee knights were pushed, fell or jumped into the clouds below. Ripping through the dense wet clouds were unnatural tornadoes, whipping the clouds into storms and dragging the falling students into their grasp. 

Ripped from each others arms the students are scattered across the surface, Landing among sand, trees or rocks.  

Map by Paper-Plate


You have landed with other students and are aware there is a dungeon ahead, indicated by the foreboding signs and large statues. It is written in the old books about these structures and their importance so if you were paying attention in class you will know strait away.  The Surrounding area is filled with ancient art and scripture.  You must enter the Dungeon, alone or with allies, and defeat it's protector to be released. Each Boss drops a Gem - Hang onto it, you will need it.

An ancient suit of armor possessed by a small fire spirit, it has long lost its legs but can still defend itself with powerful arms and laser beams that burn and smolder.  Its weak spots are the eyes on its face and chest.  It will protect these vulnerabilities with its arms, so it would be wise to damage the pieces that make up its limbs so that it can't protect itself.  The fire spirit will try to reconstruct its parts, but the chains that hold it together can be damaged too.
It drops the Power Ruby (Red Gem)

- Are you at the forefront of battle or hanging back to assist with casualties?
- Are you listening to the more experienced knights or going against their advice?
- If you are hanging back, how are you helping?
- Are you working with your teammates or have you decided to try to go it alone?
- How did you work out the creatures weak spots? Luck or deduction?
- Are you too afraid and hiding? If so, why?

-Use what you have in your inventory! If your student is not at least a level 1 knight, they should not have a sword!
-All completed entries must be submitted to The Missions Folder
-You must depict your student taking part somehow.
-Remember that if you are wounded you are still on the surface with no idea how to get home yet.
-You may work with anyone in your group. Just remember collaborations will earn you each half the rupees!
-You can do this mission as writing, a comic, a single image, or multiple images.
-If you choose to write you must have at least 750 words or more.
-Art will not count as a comic unless it is at least 3 panels long.
-You may submit as many entries as you wish. It might up your rupee count but your Gratitude Crystal rewards will not change.

F.A.Q


People have asked some good questions in regards to this mission, I shall place them here so everyone can see the answers.

Q: If we decide to do it alone will there still be other students around even if we are not working with them?
A: Yup,  Even if you decide to not co-ordinate with other group members and do your own entry. Or you decide not to collaborate with the other people in your group the other students will still be around (as specified in the journal you landed with the other students.) You do not have to reference them directly but be aware that it will be implied that they are in the dungeon somewhere

Q:Should I contact those I wish to draw my entry with?
A: If they are going to form a large part of your entry it is encouraged to co-ordinate the entry with them to make sure they are ok with how you represent their student. Otherwise you can put other students into your art it is assumed they are all there.

Q: How big are the bosses?
At least 3 people high.  Think about how huge most Zelda bosses are! they will be massive.

Does anyone have any resources/know any tutorials I could look at for improving my digital work? I've plateaued and now everything I draw on tablet looks the same, and nowhere near as satisfying as my traditional work.

Just curious, but is there a twilight princess equivalent of skyloft-academy? I'm just as obsessed and this group is so beautifully run, I'd love to join a twilight princess-themed group too!

I'm not sure. None of the mods run one that I know of and I can't see one in our affiliates. (though I can't say I've clicked on them all to look) ~ It does sound very cool though!
