---- INTRODUCTION -----------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to my first Legend of Zelda NES Guide.  Hopefully, you'll see
more from me in the coming weeks pertaining to the Legend of Zelda
NES game.  I consider myself to be one of the best, if not THE best
at the game.  I've challenged myself over and over again and have
sorta trained myself to pretty much beat the game in my sleep (well,
not really...).  As I write out this guide, I play the game to verify
the information (as at first, most of it comes from memory).

Anyway, I hope you like this, the first of hopefully a few LoZ guides
you'll see from me.  Until then...

---- Disclaimer and Legal Stuff ---------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Legend of Zelda is the trademark, copyright, whatever of Nintendo of
America in 1987.  I take no claim on the game, just this guide which
I have labored endlessly (well, not really...) to write.  Also, only
one site has the rights to host this FAQ and that's GameFaqs.com, so
don't ask.

---- FAQ Revision History ---------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

8/16/04 - version 1.4a:
email change - eric42@gmail.com

8/20/03 - version 1.4:
I have no idea where version 1.3 went.  I have no idea if it was ever 
updated or not.  Nonetheless, here is version 1.4, with a somewhat major
update.  

3/11/02 - version 1.2:
Several minor updates, including some fixes to the maps.

11/21/01 - version 1.1a: 
Email change!  eric42@eric42.org now.

8/2/01 - version 1.1: 
Added a couple stores to the map that for some dumb reason I didn't 
have in the first version.  I can't see how I missed those, for those 
were the most basic stores in the game, the ones I visited most often.  
Bah.  Anyway, thanks to strider1551@yahoo.com for pointing this out to 
me.  Coming soon, btw, are the dungeon maps.

5/13/01 - version 1.0: 
It's brand new!  Everything's new here...

Coming Soon: 
* Maps for all the dungeons are coming soon.
