Fighters of Zaron
Fighters of Zaron
|Age||3-13; 45 (Randy)|
|Grade||Kindergarten - 5th Grade|
|First Appearance||Black Friday|
The boys' live-action role-playing game, taking place in the forgotten, distant realm of Zaron, involves an eons long-battle between the Human Warriors and the Drow-Elves over ancient relics. Battles at Stark's Pond, the Malkinson Residence, and multiple at the Donovan Residence have been mentioned. The groups unite but divide during the bloody Black Friday weekend-month-ish as they try to decide whether to get Xbox Ones or PlayStation 4's, becoming two separate factions before rejoining... to use Red Robin and get the system of their choice. After Black Friday, the boys realize they had more fun with their live-action role-playing game than they ever would with video games, and re-organize it around the Stick of Truth itself, splitting it into two distinct kingdoms, with the noble Paladin Kyle succeeding to the position of High Jew Elf King and the Grand Wizard leading the Humans of the Kingdom of Kupa Keep, both races in constant battle over the stick's power.
After the events surrounding the Stick of Truth's destruction, the Fighters of Zaron game was retired, at least temporarily.
Humans (Kingdom of Kupa Keep)
- The Return of the Fellowship of the Ring to the Two Towers (s06e13; as Lord of the Rings LARP)
- Black Friday (s17e07; official debut as Fighters of Zaron)
- A Song of Ass and Fire (s17e08)
- Titties and Dragons (s17e09)
The player, as the new kid in South Park, gains entrance into the Humans' faction and learns the rules and ropes of the game, such as picking classes and how to use fart magic. They are later granted a choice between the Human and Elf factions before and during a raid on South Park Elementary, but soon all of the factions team up in a final battle against the Lord of Darkness. In the final cutscene, the boys destroy the Stick of Truth for the trouble it's caused and discuss retiring the game for something new.
- Bill Allen and Fosse McDonald's team is unclear in the game and they will appear both as Elves or Humans depending on the choices made by the player.
- It should be noted that the Grand Wizard King often refers to their eleven enemies as "drow-elves", which in fiction, such as Dungeons & Dragons are evil, dark-skinned elves who perform dark magic, and the Kingdom of Kupa Keep and the rank Grand Wizard are both clear references to the Ku Klux Klan.
- Douglas's role in Zaron was cut from the game, and Kevin and Terrence Mephesto were removed entirely, though files indicate they were LARPers as well.
- Though some female elves can be seen in cutscenes, they were cut entirely from gameplay.
