After watching the introduction to the game, showing the Legend of the Picori, 
you will get awoken after a hard nights work by your grandfather and Princess,
Zelda.  Zelda wants you to accompany her to the Picori Festival in The Town of 
Hyrule.  So once you have you lazy ass out of bed head don stairs and to the 
right.  When you enter the room another cutscene will be played, in which Zelda
asks you to go to the festival and you Grandfather gives you the sword that you
and him were working on all night.  The cutscene ends and Princess Zelda leaves
your house, unlocking the door, alloing you to explore Hyrule.  But before you
go you should open the chest at the top of the room for 200 RUPEES.  No follow
Zelda out of the house, taking the now open door.

o==================o
|South Hyrule Field|
o==================o

Now that your outside of your house you can do a bit of exploring if you really
want to, however, there is no point since you don't have any equipment to do
anything with.

Zelda will shout you over to her.  You could take the boring way of going down
the steps and walking to her.  Or you could jump of the ledge to teh left and
make the game more exiting (Give me a break, its only the start of the game, so
i'm trying to lively this up for you).  Anyay, when you approach the Princess, 
she will automatically talk to you.  THen she runs off to the north of the area,
which you have to follow her to.  When you catch up with her she will run off
again, this time to the gate of The Town of Hyrule.  When she runs in, follow
her in.

o==================o
|The Town of Hyrule|
o==================o

Welcome to the main town in the game, which you will be visiting quite a few
times as we progress through the game.

Anyway once your in the town you'll notice that it has been decorated for the 
festival.  Zelda will once again run run off.  You;ll find her in the center of
town, talking teh story teller.  When you talk to her she gets distracted and
runs off to further north.  Find her again and she'll she'll run to the east of
town.  this time she will run of to the south, next to the storyteller.  When 
catch up to her this time the stall owner will give her a choice of a prize, a
heart container, 200 rupees or a very small shield.  She picks the sheild and
gives you it.  Thats good, because normally on a LOZ game you have to pay for 
them.  Anyways, she will no tell you that she needs to get home soon and will
finally follow you.  SO now head north past where the two kids where earlier on
and into the next area.

o==================o
|North Hyrule Field|
o==================o

When you get in this area, she'll run off once again.  And I thought she was 
meant to be with you as a friend, not as a hide and seek champion!  Well as you
follow the paved path you'll find her again, but as you do she gets hit with a 
deku seed, spat by a deku scrub.  Talk to her and she tells you about the Deku scrub, saying that we should defend against it.  I guess that means its time for
a sheild debut.  Stand in froony of the Deku Scrub and press A/B to defend
against it and send the nut back.  The Deku scrub will be stunned, which will
allow you to approach it and talk.  When you do it tells you that it can't help
but spit seeds when it talks (Which is a lie, because its not spitting now),
amd that its returning back to its cave.  Good riddance.  Now with that pest 
gone, keep on following the path to the castle gardens.

|Hyrule Castle Garden|
o====================o

Now that we're almost rid of the Princess head up north to the top of the area.
Here you will find Porto, the Minister.  When you approach him you will 
automatically talk to him.  He takes the SMITH SWORD of you and Zelda tells you 
that she has to get ready for the ceremony, which you get invited to by Porto.

The soldiers bring the Picori Blade and th Chest out, while Porto explains that 
the sword seals a great evil in the chest, and each year the winner of the
sword fighting competion gets to touch the Picori Blade.  As he does so the 
champion, Vaati Approaches.  He says something evil and the guards attack.  He
knocks them away and opens the chest, breaking the sword.  Zelda tries to stop
him, who is then turned into stone, and your knocked out trying to protect her.

Press B and you'll hop out of the bed that you've been recovering in.  When you 
go left and leave the room another cutscene will begin.  In this cut scene you
find out that the Picori are actually real, and only present themselves to
children.  Because of this your grandfatther voulenteers you to go to the Picori
to repair the Picori Blade.  After the cutscene you are given the SMITH SWORD as 
a weapon, the HYRULE MAP and the BROKEN PICORI BLADE.  Now the quest begins.
