I'm down. This sounds more my speed.

I've had to keep taking breaks on my first run. It really shows that I haven't played this game in years (or ever, randomized).

I just practiced a seed with these settings. I'll put it here for you guys as a warm-up. (change the two commas into periods)

Something important I learned from playing this seed:
Spoiler.
If you get the Flute before the Glove, you can rescue the old man in the Death Mountain climb backwards

Generating the seed in about 2 hours.

One more great resource if you can't remember all item locations is this interactive tracker. Use the version with the map, and it will show you exactly what places you can access given the items you have.

Finished

Real-time: 2:24:48

I actually recorded it for personal reference so I'll go over my route later. This was a pretty painful seed overall and I made bad dungeon calls.

Taking another DNF. Don't know if I'll be participating in races in the future...I have a lot of fun doing it, but I can only neglect my family for so long before the guilt sets in.

Took a long journey around the world to find the items needed for Swamp Palace, the last pendant I needed. I saved Turtle Rock for very last, and yep,
that's where Flippers were hiding

I forgot to mention I'm working an extra shift tonight. :ashamed:

I'll try to fit some time in when I get home, though.

Okay so my route
Spoiler.
-looked around the first two dungeons/Light World, couldn't find gloves, did Aga to get Dark World access (35:04)
-combed Palace of Darkness, got glove and shovel (45:00)
-looked around Dark World for a bit, found Titan Mitts where Flute normally is, did Tower of Hera (1:10:34)
-found Red Mail and Somaria in Death Mountain cave, used Ether to enter Misery Mire, finished it (1:32:29)
-began the hunt for Flippers and Hookshot: did Eastern Palace, Palace of Darkness and Desert Palace before doing Turtle Rock which had the Flippers. I then made a bad call and combed the beginning of Swamp Palace, didn't get Hookshot so I did Thieves Town. Then I entered Skull Woods and found the Hookshot in the very first chest. (2:17:42)
-final pendant get (2:22:41)
-Triforce cutscene begins, gg (2:24:00)

Let's have your input on the next one. Mainly trying to determine the following:

Next weekend or two weekends from now?
Easy or Normal?
Goal: Ganon or Pedestal?

I know I said that I might be done with these, but I think I'll continue getting the seeds and trying them out, but I won't be
-streaming
-racing at the same time/pace
because those are the things that I feel like are most holding me back right now. Streaming just really sucks me away from the real world in a way I'm not a fan of

so yeah.

Either mode is fine, and let's try another Pedestal race

Right now I'm hoping more people can finish in one session, so I think leaving the settings as they were is fine.

6PM EST on Saturday February 24th
Easy, Standard, Goal: Master Sword Pedestal


Remember, Easy mode's item pool includes 8 swords, 8 bottles, 4 armors, 6 shields, 2 half magics (find both for 1/4 magic), 3 chances for a lamp, and a dungeon treasure counter on the UI. We'll change difficulty when bosses are rarely killing anyone.

Hopefully we won't need to check as many dungeons on this seed

I definitely won’t be able to race on Saturday, but I can give this seed a go on Sunday and throughout the week.
