Postman Areas [.6]
Special Thanks [.8]
Welcome to my guide!
I was looking on GameFAQs, and at the time
there appeared to be no guide about the many
letters you receive during the game. I didn’t
write this guide for awhile, but now I’ve decided
to (obviously). So I hope you enjoy everything
What exactly are letters? How do you read
them? Where does The Postman show up? What letters
will I get in the future? These are all questions
I hope will be answered for you. If you have any
unanswered questions by the end of this guide,
feel free to e-mail me about them. Read my e-mail
section for more information.
So, read on and have fun.
~=~=~=~=VERSION HISTORY [.2]=~=~=~=~
-~Version 1.0 (6/17/08): Finished everything
already. It wasn’t that long to finish, but surely
I will update more in the future.
-~Version 2.0 (7/28/08): Finally prompting myself
to do it, I changed how the letters were written
so that they were easier to read. I realized that,
when posted on GameFAQs, all the spaces that I
separated using the tab key made everything funky
-~Version 2.1 (12/3/08): Lyndsey O’Day helped me
out by saying that she received the “Agitha’s
Dream” letter before the Temple of Time and
theorized how that might be possible. Added her to
the Special Thanks section. Also added that the
Postman appears in all the gates to Castle Town,
not just the western one like I thought before.
~=~=~=~=MY E-MAIL AND E-MAIL POLICIES [.3]=~=~=~=~
Before I even tell you my e-mail address, let’s go
over the policies so that you’ve seen them before
you send the e-mail. I will GLADLY accept these
kinds of e-mails.
-~Questions. If you’ve got a question and it
wasn’t answered in this guide, you can ask me
about it, and I will answer it as best I can. If
it WAS answered in the guide, but you still didn’t
understand it, still e-mail me, but say it was
unclear to you. If you don’t say it, I will assume
your question falls under the unaccepted e-mails
-~Errors. If you see an error in something I’ve
written in like a letter or something, e-mail me,
and I’ll try and correct it. You can even e-mail
me on grammatical errors.
-~Suggestions for this guide. Think this guide
could use a little something more? Think it needs
another section? Then e-mail me about it, and I’ll
see about doing it. You can even e-mail me about
doing another guide if you want to. Just depends
on what the guide is.
-~Answers to my questions. There are some things
I myself may not be clear about, like, say,
Postman Areas. I am not familiar with every area
the Postman shows up, so if you know of another
spot the Postman will arrive, e-mail me!
-~If you want to put this guide or any part of it
on your website. You NEED my permission first. So
e-mail me, and if I see fit to give you
permission, you may post it on your website.
Aaaand these are e-mails that will NOT be
-~Stuff that was already answered in the guide.
If you ask a question and it’s already been
answered here, DON’T E-MAIL ME ABOUT IT. Read the
guide BEFORE submitting e-mails. If the question
was answered but you still don’t understand it, e-
mail me saying you didn’t understand it, and it
will be posted.
-~Hate mail. If you hate me, don’t tell me about
it. If you have something to criticize about this
guide, be nice about it, and at least make it
productive so that I can actually fix the problem.
-~E-mails full of bad language. All of my guides
on GameFAQs are and will be cuss-free. “Sucks” is
allowed, but no more than that. Not even “small”
bad words will be allowed. None at all.
-~Praise mail. The exact opposite of hate mail,
but I still don’t accept it. It really does
nothing to help this guide, except maybe an ego-
booster for me. You may really enjoy my guide, but
don’t e-mail me about it. Don’t feel insulted if
you send me praise mail and it isn’t accepted.
-~Questions unrelated to this guide. If you send
me a question that is not about The Postman,
letters, Postman locations, that sort of thing, it
will not be answered. For instance, “how do I beat
Fyrus?” That’s not the job of this guide, is it?
(For the record, I have a boss guide on this game
here on GameFAQs as well if you honestly need
Remember to make the title say, “TP Letters
Guide,” since that will make it much easier to
Alright, now that you have (hopefully) read
the policies, I will FINALLY tell you my e-mail
~=~=~=~=ABOUT LETTERS AND THE POSTMAN [.4]=~=~=~=~
This will, hopefully, tell you all you need to
know about letters and The Postman. I will answer
this in classic FAQ form, with, eh, the questions
submitted by myself.
Who is The Postman?
You don’t know who The Postman is! *bursts out in
hysterical laughter* Ahem…The Postman is rather
eccentric man who, as his name implies, delivers
the mail for you. All of your letters will be
delivered by him. In certain spots, he’ll shout,
“Heeey!” and dash up to meet you. The Postman idea
really originated in Majora’s Mask, I think, where
a similar-looking running guy with a bunny image
on his hat ran around Clock Town checking
How do I read letters?
After you get your first letter, you can read them
by pressing Start and moving your cursor down to
the bottom-right corner icon, where the red
envelope image is. Press A to open it up. All your
letters are in there. Press A on one to open it up
and read it. Press A to go back or move to the
next page if there is one. One the letters screen,
press L or R to move over to another screen to see
the other letters you’ve got if you have any more.
How do I get letters?
As mentioned before, The Postman will deliver the
letters to you on foot. He will meet you in
certain spots, like in front of the west gate of
Castle Town, to deliver them to you. I have a
section here of known spots The Postman appears
How do I know which letters are new or not?
On the letters screen, unopened letters will have
a small red envelope image on the upper-left
corner of the letter’s title.
Can I get more than one letter at a time?
Of course! The Postman can always deliver more
than one letter. If you didn’t meet up after he
has the first letter, he will say, “I have a
letter for you. 2, in fact!” or something similar.
I’ve gotten up to “4, in fact” before.
I didn’t get a certain letter! What happened?
Some letters can only be obtained by doing special
means. For instance, the second “Dear Adventurer”
letter can only be obtained by using Ooccoo in the
Goron Mines. If you don’t use her, you won’t get
the letter. As far as I know, if you missed the
letter, it’s gone for good unless you start a new
game. I will tell you which letters must be gotten
by special means.
And that just about wraps it up. Those were,
of course, all self-invented questions, but if you
yourself have any about those kinds of things, ask
What happens if I go to a Postman area in Wolf
First of all, The Postman does not appear if the
province is covered in twilight. But after you’ve
gotten the Master Sword and can switch forms at
will, if you go to a Postman area in wolf form,
after he goes, “Heeey!” you will automatically
~=~=~=~=THE LETTERS [.5]=~=~=~=~
Aaah, finally, the letters. These are all letters
that you receive at some point or another during
the game. To help you better understand how each
letter section I write is put down, here’s a
Sender: [name of person/group who sent it]
Letter: [the contents of the letter]
Obtained: [the time you get the letter]
Comments: [my personal comments on the
And there you have it. Simple enough, right?
Okay, here we go, starting with letter number one.
About Mail Delivery [.01]
-~Sender: The Postman
-~Letter: If I have a letter for you, I will
approach you at high speed! Please do not flee!
-~Obtained: After beating the Forest Temple,
in front of the entrance to Kakariko Gorge.
-~Comments: Your very first letter, and it’s
from The Postman himself. Weird little man. You
don’t have the option of fleeing, anyway.
- Dear Adventurer - [.02]
-~Letter: I was so happy to meet you and
spend a bit of time with you!
I am planning a trip to a new location, just so
If you continue on your journeys, we might see
each other again!
So take care of yourself…
[P.S. I didn’t have a chance to tell you this last
time, but I have a son. I’ll introduce you to him
if we meet again! He’s a good boy who can help you
like an item, so be nice!]
Obtained: After clearing the twilight from
the Eldin Province.
-~Comments: The little section in brackets
is a part of the letter that only appears if you
never used Ooccoo in the Forest Temple.
URGENT NOTICE! [.03]
-~Sender: Kakariko Goods [Malo]
-~Letter: New sundries in Kakariko!
If you haven’t already been by to look, I have an
item that isn’t available anywhere else! Come by
before someone else snatches it!
And please, no window shoppers!
-~Obtained: After defeating King Bulbin for
the first time.
-~Comments: “Kakariko Goods” is, apparently,
the name of Malo’s new store in Kakariko--before
it becomes Malo Mart, of course. Malo apparently
felt bad after Colin was injured and “got
- Dear Adventurer - [.04]
-~Letter: Oooh, I was so happy to see you
the other day, I really had fun!
I was also happy to see my son’s face again, SO
I’d like you to know, we will be heading to
another location soon.
If you continue on your travels, chances are that
we’ll meet again.
My son and I are certainly looking forward to
seeing you again. Take care of yourself!
-~Obtained: After beating the Goron Mines if
you used Ooccoo there.
-~Comments: You can only get this letter by
using Ooccoo in the Goron Mines. So if you want an
additional letter, you can use this Oocca to gain
URGENT! Bomb Arrows [.05]
-~Sender: Barnes Bombs
-~Letter: Thank you for your patronage!
Enjoy the power of our bombs!
Not only can you place and throw our bombs, but
they can be combined with the bow by going to the
item screen and using R to create bomb arrows. Try
-~Obtained: After buying a Bomb Bag full of
bombs from Barnes (can only be done after
completing the Goron Mines dungeon).
-~Comments: More specifically, to create
bomb arrows, go to the item screen and equip your
bow if it isn’t out already. Then highlight a bomb
image and press R when prompted to put on/take off
Good Stuff Inside! [.06]
-~Letter: Finally, we’ve finished production
on a new type of bomb! These ones can be used in
the water! We have them in stock NOW! Come by and
pick YOURS up!
-~Obtained: After escorting Ilia and Telma
to Kakariko Village
-~Comments: In the Lakebed Temple, you’ll
encounter some fish that start to explode after
attacked. These bombs are made out of those.
Now open for business! [.07]
-~Sender: Lanayru Tourism
-~Letter: The Lanayru Tourist Association
has prepared a grand tour of natural splendor!
Our current main attraction is Iza and Hena’s
Playground for Grown-Ups!
You’ll find both immediately down the riverbank
from the Zora waterfall pool.
*Iza’s Rapid Ride*
Shoot at targets while riding the raging river
rapids! No extra charge for using bomb arrows!
*Hena’s Fishing Hole*
It’s a fight against nature with lure fishing!
What kind of fish can you catch?
We look forward to seeing you there!
-~Obtained: After banishing the twilight
from the Lanayru Province.
-~Comments: “Playground for grown-ups”? Not
even “adults”? …Actually, I realized that I had
forgotten to include the “obtained” and “comments”
parts of this letter, so here I am, fixing my
They Came So Quickly! [.08]
Letter: Link, there are some folks I want
you to meet, so come to my bar right away. These
guys will be powerful allies for you.
You heard me! I’ll be waiting at my Castle Town
-~Obtained: After getting the Master Sword.
-~Comments: These “powerful allies” are
Shad--a young and intelligent man who researches
the Oocca to carry on his deceased father’s work--
Ashei, a brash but courageous girl--Auru, old and
wise--and Rusl, the swordsman of your home
Rare Item in Stock! [.09]
-~Letter: How’ve you been? Still a bomb
enthusiast? Still loving bombs?
Well, I’ve got some interesting bombs in, so come
on by and pick some up!
Wait’ll you see what these babies can do!
-~Obtained: After completing the Arbiter’s
Grounds (I think)
-~Comments: These bombs are the explosive
bugs you saw about the Forest Temple. These things
are rather useless; they walk forward on their own
when set (similar to a Bombchu from Ocarina of
Time), but if you honestly need a mobile bomb, use
Heroes, Come Together! [.010]
-~Sender: Malo Mart
-~Letter: Malo Mart, the hero of discounts,
is finally open in Castle Town! We’ve got all you
need for that upcoming trip, and we offer it at
!GRAND OPENING SPECIAL!
Magic Armor (limit 1)
Act fast, heroes!
-~Obtained: Whenever you donate the needed
money in “phase 2” to Malo in Kakariko Village
-~Comments: Malo Mart really IS an
incredible place. Everything there is half off; a
set of 30 ordinary bombs is 45 rupees instead of
90. The Magic Armor sure comes in handy, too,
although it’s a large sum of 598 rupees.
Agitha’s Dream [.011]
-~Sender: Princess Agitha
-~Letter: Agitha had a dream last night.
Butterflies surrounded Agitha and lifted her up to
As she waved to the people below in Castle Town,
she could see so many people, some waving back,
others staring wide-eyed.
Agitha flew in a big circle above Hyrule Field and
the butterflies formed into a bed beneath her and
said, “Let’s play again…” Soon they faded away and
she woke up in her own bed.
Ohh…Agitha wants so badly to fly in the sky…
-~Obtained: Actually, Lyndsey O’Day has
mentioned that she received this letter prior to
completing the Temple of Time, which is when I
thought you were supposed to receive the letter.
She theorizes that it might depend on the number
of golden bugs you give Agitha; the more bugs, I’m
guessing, the sooner her letter comes.
-~Comments: Agitha isn’t really a princess.
The “Insect Kingdom” isn’t real. She is a little
girl with a huge imagination.
From Wife of Yeto [.012]
-~Letter: I feel bad. You paid me visit and
I not much help.
I feel better now. Husband and I sled lots now.
Very much fun!
Link, you join us at Snowpeak Sometime!
-~Obtained: After completing the Snowpeak
-~Comments: Join them sledding! If you can
beat Yeta, you earn a Piece of Heart.
About Ilia’s Memory… [.013]
There is something about Ilia’s memory that I wish
to tell you.
I know you are busy, but please come visit me in
my sanctuary in Kakariko Village.
-~Obtained: After completing the Temple of

process of getting Ilia’s memory back, and thus
getting to the seventh dungeon, City in the Sky.
Challenge for You! [.014]
-~Letter: Ladies and gentlemen!
The STAR game that has swept Hyrule by storm is
now available in Castle Town!
Even those of you who have beaten it once will
find all new challenges and thrills!
Come find us in the tent on the west gate road!
We’ll be waiting!
-~Obtained: After getting the Double
-~Comments: If you haven’t been there
already, go there. You can get upgrades for your
arrow quiver by beating both levels, the second of
which has been made now.
Hey, Kid!!! [.015]
-~Sender: Ooccoo Jr.
-~Letter: Wow, kid! Awesome!
(My son said that he wanted to write you a
letter…he worked so hard on it! Goodness, yes!)
We thank you for all your help, both on land and
in the sky. The other Oocca thank you, as well.
Come visit us anytime! Take care!
-~Obtained: After completing the City in the

Jr.. Well, ya gotta give him credit; he has no
arms or legs to write with.
-~Letter: Dear Link,
After we parted, I tried that word on all the
statues I could find in Hyrule, but it was a
disaster! How disappointing!
…But if I let something so small get to me, my
dear father will scoff at me from beyond the
I’m going back to the sanctuary in Kakariko
Village to see if I can’t find another lead.
I certainly hope that if you find any more
information, you will share it with me posthaste.

Book with all missing characters
-~Comments: Poor Shad…he doesn’t know you
have the Dominion Rod…he doesn’t know anything
about what’s going on…when will someone tell him?
~=~=~=~=Postman Areas [.6]=~=~=~=~
You may be curious as to where The Postman might
come jogging up so you know ahead of time. I’ll
admit, I don’t know all the answers myself…which
is why I need people like you to e-mail me on it
if you know of a spot he shows up in that’s not
listed here. As with any accepted e-mail, you
will be placed in the special thanks section when
So, here are my known Postman areas where he
will show up.
-~In front of all the gates to Castle Town.
-~In front of the southern entrance of Kakariko
-~In front of the northern entrance to Kakariko
-~On the bridge in the area of Hyrule Field north
of Castle Town
-~On the Bridge of Eldin
-~On the Great Bridge of Hylia
Again, if you know of an area The Postman
shows up but it isn’t listed here, e-mail me on
Have any questions? Suggestions? Answers to stuff
I don’t even know? Things you need to correct me
about? E-mail me, and your questions, suggestions,
answers to stuff I didn’t know, and even your
corrections will be posted here. You will also get
a nice spot in the special thanks section, so I
encourage you to send me e-mails.
-~Q: “I had a quick look at your guide but didnt
find what i was looking for. Have you got any idea
of what the crouching postmen hidden all around
the map are all about??? I was hoping that it
would be a secret side mission like the one from
Ocarina of Time where u get that really big
sword....but i cant find anything about it on the
-~A: There actually is no real reason for the
postman being there, not to my knowledge, at
least. He’s found at Telma’s Bar, the stable in
Ordon Ranch, and even at the end of the Cave of
Ordeals the second time you go through. He’s a
quirky little guy and is found here and there and
everywhere. He was put there solely for a laugh as
he displays his peculiarities, like wondering what
to order at Telma’s Bar and trying to feed a goat
a useless letter. It would be awesome if you could
go on a sidequest like that, but unfortunately,
the postman is there to make you say, “You
again!?!” I hope that answers your question,
~=~=~=~=Special Thanks [.8]=~=~=~=~
These are people I would specially like to thank:
-~Nintendo for making the game.
-~Me for a fine job on this guide.
-~Charlie for being the first person to send an
-~Lyndsey O’Day for informing me about the
Agitha’s Letter thing.
If you actually take the time to read this, yay.
So ends this guide on letters. I hope it was
very useful and extremely enjoyable.
