|Kingdom of Ikana|
The ancient Kingdom of Ikana is a large mystery to all of Hyrule. At one point in history they controlled a vast empire of glory and prosperity. Then one day, a sudden civil war broke out among their people. Within a few short days, their entire Kingdom vanished. All their people and cities completely gone from the face of Hyrule with no explanation. Many centuries passed and their existence became a myth, though many claim to see their cities vanish in and out of existence over the years. Now in recent times their cities have begun to reappear at large in their barren homeland to the south. It is a mystery what had happened to them all these years, but now the Ikanians have returned, and to them all the inhabitants of Hyrule cannot be trusted. Neither living nor dead, the Ikanians are cursed with the appearance of skeletal warriors, though it is unknown if it is only a magical facade or if they truly have become such monstrosities. Regardless, their numbers grow and their army prepares to destroy those who would betray them. The army of Ikana is a fairly balanced one, armed with professional grade weaponry and armor. The undead appearance of the Ikanians also gives them a certain psychological edge in a fight. Despite their masterwork weapons, armor, and training, the resources in Ikana's homeland are nearly run dry, and they have a poor economy to field troops. As such, soldiers are rather expensive and costly to lose in a fight. Whatever high price their soldiers may desire, the money is well worth the effort of assembling a mighty army worthy of the name Ikana.

The Kingdom of Ikana have a very focused techtree with a lot of building prerequisites and population marks to be reached. Their barren landscape and quality units are reflected with poor economy buildings and expensive costs. Their techtree is also dual in nature: Players can continue to worship Majora in return for power and his favor, or they can seek repentance from the Goddesses to repair the damage to their land. Both options lead to very different settlement types as well as giving Ikana four different Upgrade levels.
- Crack into Termina: A small crack in the earth from which the dead of Termina can march into Hyrule.
- Civilian Sector: Once served as a large housing district for all the civilian population of Ikana.
- Favor of Majora: Orders the inhabitants of Ikana to create idols of Majora in his name. As the population of a city increases, you can order further idols be displayed. Increases the chance that Majora will lend support to your efforts and increases the law of the city.
- Repentance for the Goddesses: Orders the inhabitants of Ikana to create idols of the Goddesses in their name. As the population of a city increases, you can order further idols be displayed. Decreases the chance of Majora lending his support and creates unrest within host city. If enough idols are present the city will convert to Strict Goddess Worship, eliminating the negative effects of the idols and allowing you to train living units.
- Ikanian Farms: Simple farmland devoted to cultivating crops for Ikana. Can only be constructed if no Termina Fissure is present and Majora Worship is abolished. Upgrades to a larger size as population increases.
- Termina Fissure: A large fissure in the earth from which entire armies can march into Hyrule from Termina.
- Military Sector: Once served as a large training ground and armory district for many soldiers of Ikana.
- Sacred Sector: Once served as a graveyard for the dead of Ikana, patrolled by soldiers tasked with guarding their spirits.
- Termina Corridor: More cracks open up upon the earth, allowing more denizens of Termina to slip into Hyrule.
- Luxury Sector: Once served as living quarters for the wealthiest of Ikana, as well as guests from foreign nations.
- Termina Portal: A large gaping pit into the earth of Hyrule allows entire populations to move from Termina.
- War Council Sector: Once served as a base of operations and planning for the various generals of Ikana's armies.
- Tower of Worship: Massive tower constructed in order to appease and worship the Ikana deity, be it Majora or the Goddesses of Hyrule. Allows units to train at their first Upgrade Level
- Termina Fixture: A pit so massive, who knows what terrors of Termina can climb their way into Hyrule?
- Supreme Sector: Once served as a large base of operations, lavish living quarters, and training grounds for the most famous and deadliest warriors of Ikana.
- Answered Tower of Worship: Majora or the Goddesses answer the worship and prayer of Ikana, granting them power in their name. Allows Ikana to train at their second Upgrade level.
- The Kingdom of Ikana's faction symbol is based on the sigil worn by Ikanian characters in the Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
