as if it has not already played out (the Introduction
I mean) so just set that aside temporarily as there are a few small tasks for us to do before we can pursue the main mission and story line, alright? Excellent! First check the map in the Homestead to see that there is a Homestead Mission for you to do – head to the marker now.
