Hello there HeroofTime!

Well, you're a Link fan, no question! I think it's wonderful you honored your hero with this creative work, it's a wonderful tribute to him in 40K terms. The only reason I wouldn't suggest you use him in a game is because you have defined his power level with a different scale than the characters in 40K. I'm sure Harlequins and Space Marines have mastered many 'special moves' that they use, but in standard 40K games, this is just abstracted into Weapon Skill, Attacks, and Initiative. I'd love to see rules for a terminator ramming his thundershield down some tyranid's mouth but that sort of thing is left to the imagination rather than made into an ability. Maybe your version of Link would be more at home in the RPGs?

You did a lot of thinking and writing, and I totally applaud your creativity! It was fun to see Link written up and interpreted by you, very nice job! I'm halfway through the game with that adorable little imp Midna, Twilight Princess, and can't wait to see how it end!

Anyway, Emperor bless and cherish you!
