Oh those lovely hometowns, starting villages... Their peaceful and harmonious atmosphere ensures that there's nothing to worry about; our journey is yet to begin. And then suddenly, it's all gone, leaving behind nothing but dust. And sometimes a bit of fire.

The settlements listed below are not necessarily just starting areas, but they have one thing in common: they are all doomed to meet their destiny, sooner or later, and there is nothing we can do to save them.

I wanted to mention Clock Town, but I'm not really sure it fits.

It's doomed in that if you do nothing it's gone.

It's doomed in that you can't really save it the first few go arounds, just postpone it's destruction.

But the goal and end product is to "un-doom" it so I'm not sure it really fits in that regard.
