Legend of Zelda: Staff of Power

Latest Comic:
Chapter 7, Page 88
Chapter 7, Page 88

An ancient weapon created for harmony brought civil war. Shattering it brought tentative peace, until the leader of the Gerudo attempts to slaughter an entire race of people, then turning his hatred upon the monarchy of Hyrule. Defeated by the Hero of Time and the Princess of Destiny, he was sealed away in the Sacred Realm. Years later, he has gained more power, and has broken free. Now it will take the very weapon he seeks to destroy him, and an unlikely wielder to complete the task. Who will win? Updates: Bi-weekly (Wednesdays and Sundays) Reads: Left to right ~Like the comic?

'Staff of Power' Followers!

Hey all!

Sorry I haven't written one of these in awhile. I haven't really had anything to write about, so I guess the journal just fell by the wayside, lol. Anyway, I have an announcement! Starting in May, 'Staff of Power' will be going back to a twice a week update schedule! I feel like I am in a comfortable place right now where I can afford to do it for awhile, so I'm going to! If I find myself in a position where it starts to put me behind, I will change it, but for now I'm content.

The update days will be Wednesday and Sunday.

Hope you all are doing well!

-Ash

Happy 2017 Followers!

Hello all! Sorry I've been really really REALLY bad about news and whatnot. Last year was an absolute hot mess (quite possibly the worst on record for my almost-35-years, frankly), and it exhausted me to the point that I was on autopilot for a lot of things in my life. I'm nowhere near where I should be, but I'm hoping to everything that will change as the months creep by, and spring comes closer. Winter gets heavier and heavier on my mind as I get older, and it makes wanting to do anything productive nearly impossible some days.

However that being said, that's not why I'm here. I get distracted easily, my bad. SO! Yeah, the site seems to have gone through a facelift recently, and it's made the order in which I had things SO VERY NEATLY ORGANIZED (seriously site, dick move. I'm not a fan of things moving on their own) a confusing pile on update days.

Ergo, I rearranged some things. Extra Goodies and Cosplay (you guys don't see that one since it's empty, but it would have been problematic too). This irks me simply because they have a lot of creature and character concept art among them, which is pretty much spoilerific to those that haven't read through the series yet. That's the only real reason I had the folder at the bottom versus the top. Ah well, for now this works I guess.

Anyway, I'm rambling now. I hope you guys continue to enjoy the story as it progresses this year, and have a great 2017!

NEW POSTING SCHEDULE!

ATTENTION 'STAFF OF POWER' FOLLOWERS:

The new posting schedule (Mondays) will begin on Monday, July 4th. It will post once a week, until I build a comfortable enough buffer to change that. For now, however, the new pages are taking too much time to keep up with a twice-a-week posting schedule. I apologize, but I want this to be a 'quality over quantity' thing, so hopefully I can bring you all some awesome pages!

IMPORTANT: Wednesday 09-16/15 Update

There will be no update this day. I will be doing a 'media blackout', so to speak, in honor of the death of my very close friend. Thank you for your understanding.

'Staff of Power' Contest!

Alright 'Staff of Power' followers! The time is (almost) upon us again! IT'S CONTEST TIME, BABY. WOO.

The setup of this contest fits deviantART's setup for submissions, but if you are not a member of the site and still wish to participate, please contact either yamilink or myself (serenitythefaierikin on deviantart) here at Smack Jeeves or on deviantART by making a temporary account and noting one of us (yamilink's username is the same on both sites).

BUT I DIGRESS.

The theme of the day LAST time was Aspects, and putting the Aspects in their elemental environments. The theme this time around is similar to that, in that it DOES involve the Aspects once more. This time, however, it comes with a twist!

CORRUPTED ASPECTS.

That's right, there will be a lot of interesting free reign with this one, and let me explain why. In the story, we see that the Shrine Guardians have been tainted by corruption and dark magic, yet the Aspects themselves are safely sealed inside of the shards they watch over. What if, however, they weren't sealed away? What if they shared the same fate as their fellow Guardians did?

There are many different options you could take with this, such as simply drawing what they would look like, or even stepping it up one and drawing them with their corrupted Guardians as well! For those Aspects that we haven't seen the Guardians for yet, you are free to guess what you think they will be, should you wish to include them as well!

Another option could be writing a scenario of Link and Serenity facing off against the corrupted Aspect of your choice. Whether they win or lose is up to you, this is an AU after all! Things can get crazy!

All in all, the main idea is to have fun with this!

MEDIA OPTIONS:

-Art
-Fic
-Poetry
-Song
(Photo-manipulations will not be accepted. Sorry)

TIME FRAME:

I decided to lay out the idea early enough for people to decide if they want to enter before the start date, and if they do, give them time to formulate an idea before starting!

Start: September 21st, 2015
End: December 31st, 2015 (three months, 10 days)

RULES:

-You do not have to be a member of the group to enter the contest. If you are not a member and want to be one, we would LOVE
to have you join us!
-The limit is two entries per contestant
-The submissions must be received by the judges no later than 11:59pm (of the timezone you occupy) on the date specified
in order to qualify.
-The entry must be completed by the contestant and the contestant only.
-Stock images/bases are allowed for reference, but will not be accepted if they are purely
just photo-manipulations or are clearly just tracings. Proper credit is a MUST on this, thank you.
-Please keep your entries PG rated!
-To enter your submissions, just place submit them to the 'Contest Entries' folder. Simple as that! (if you are unable to do this LET THE MODS KNOW IMMEDIATELY so we can get it fixed!)

PRIZES:

1st: Full pic from either yamilink or serenitythefaierikin + 3 month subscription*
2nd: Bust/chibi pic from either yamilink or serenitythefaierikin + 1 month subscription*

Happy 2015 + News!

Greetings everybody, and happy new year! I hope 2015 brings you all much joy and happiness, along with good health and wellbeing.

I have some news! 'Staff of Power' now has a Facebook group! If you'd like to join, go ahead! It is a place where fans of the story can discuss things about it, along with not only seeing pages, but other art that pertains to the story. This also includes WIP's! So if you've ever wondered what my pages look like before they're done, this will be a way to see just that :)

The page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1014358328579584/

That's all for now! Thanks for reading!

Happy November!

Greetings all! I just wanted to drop a little note to say the holiday season is coming up, so be sure to have a safe and happy season!

In honor of this, I will be doing another 10 page update extravaganza, in honor of Christmas/Hanukkah/Solstice/Festivus/whatever it is you celebrate! I love you all so much and appreciate you sticking around as long as you have, so it's the least I can do to give back to you!

And speaking of updates, the 200 page spectacular is coming up within the next update! My dear friend yamilink and I teamed up to bring you a couple of collab pages, the first of which I did the lines for, and she colored! The one following switches the rolls, so I hope you all enjoy what you see!!!

Until then, stay happy, followers! <3

Happy August Everybody!

It's been awhile since I've made a news post, and for that I apologize... I'm just not that interesting haha!!

Anyway, first I want to say a giant THANK YOU to all of you who follow the story, and an even larger THANK YOU to those who take the time to comment on the pages that you do. I may not respond all the time, but I do read each and every comment you make. I mainly don't respond because I am terrible at doing so, usually I'm nothing but a rolling/blushing pile and that's very hard to transfer to text!

Pages will keep coming weekly, though I do have a proposition for everyone that I would like feedback on. My birthday is one month from tomorrow, and my husband suggested I do something nice for my followers. He suggested doing a giant post session, where I would post about 10 pages at once as a gift. This would not hurt my buffer at all, I am just gauging interest at the moment.

If you are interested, comment! I will do some sort of 'extra goodies' post for this as well, just to be sure it gets seen.

That's about all I have right now. Thank you all for sticking around, I hope you continue to enjoy 'Staff of Power'!
