First thing’s first, I caught and tamed a new horse. That handsome blanketed Pinto up there is aptly named Pinter.
Next, I overlooked a little information about the meeting I had with Impa in my previous post. Another thing she told me was that my Slate was missing some of its basic functionality. She said that Link should head to the village of Hateno where there were facilities to get that fixed.
What I didn’t count on was so many other things I’d find there!
The first thing I saw when I arrived was this strange kid. He wanted me to follow him, so I did. He showed me this ominous statue, which held a conversation with Link. Basically, you can come to this statue to switch your extra heart containers and stamina points around as much as you like.
A little creepy, but a good deal!
The next thing I found was super exciting for me. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I wondered if there would be a form of housing in the game. Well, I discovered, yes, there is indeed.
I found a house that a group of construction workers were going to tear down. Instead, I struck a deal with the head of the company to buy it from him. I just needed 3,000 rupees and a stack of wood.
Awesome! I’ll get right on that!
Things just keep getting better and better in this village. I found the dye shop! All you have to do is pay the keeper and contribute items of a certain color to get the job done.
And boom! Link in blue!
Of course, right after I dye my old armor, I discover a shop that’s selling better armor than what I have.
Annnd… so I bought it.
This is good, though. It’s become my go-to armor for battle now days.
I picked up a bunch of quests, explored the village, and eventually made it to the lab at the top of the hill. I’ll talk about that next time, though!
