From the Skipper’s Retreat, start heading westward. As you do, be aware that you WILL encounter a few enemies. You can run them over with the boat (if they are on the water, and I am not joking) or utilize the cannon (it shoots Bombs, so you don’t have to be precise).
Anyhow, proceed to the northwestern corner of the map to find the Shipyard. Once you arrive, get out of the boat.
Long ago, on a dark day, the earth cracked and evil forces rushed out of the fissure. These forces mercilessly attacked the people of the earth, slaughtering them and destroying their land. They did this in search of the ultimate power, a power capable of granting any wishes of its holder. This power, passed down from the gods of old, was guarded by Her Grace, the goddess of the land. The goddess gathered the surviving humans on a piece of earth and sent it skyward, beyond the clouds. With the humans safe, the goddess joined the land dwellers and fought the evil forces in a war of unmatched scale and ferocity. They eventually sealed the evil forces away, restoring peace to the surface. However, the humans remained in Skyloft, as Hylia knew that the seal on the evil would not hold forever.
You are Link, a resident of Skyloft, who, after a strange dream, sets out on a journey to save his beloved home.
