HTLOZ II is the latest successor to Hyrule: The Land of Zelda, following Gamer Crossfire and The Fallout Shelter. It was founded in March 2005 by F3, Tempest, and IceSage. The web site is still technically considered a Zelda fan site, but has shifted focus to the community forums.
Contrasting with the design of the first HTLOZ, HTLOZ II features a non-flash design. The site is unique in that many of its members have been around for a considerable amount of time at HTLOZ or its successors (Many ten or more years), and the community is one of the most tight-knit in existence.
While HTLOZ II still maintains its content archives, in early 2008 the site dropped its homepage in favor of the forums.
The site is currently operated by:
- F3 (Project Lead)
- Tempest (Site Administrator)
- Captain Cornflake (Site Administrator)
- Volcanux (Moral Support)
- Kadino (Forum Moderator)
- Gale (Forum Moderator)
- Forbidden Angel (Forum Moderator)
