Features and Overview
Great Wimbich is a small town located in central Tolemac. It is situated close to the Meadow of Skotness, and sits between the Skotness River and the river of the Forest of Torian to the north. As there is no proper bridge crossing the rivers, the town can only be accessed by crossing a fallen tree log near one of the houses. The town consists of six bungalows lined with hedges, of which only four can be entered. In the center is the town square, where a small market stall has been set up by the Town Merchant. She sells Zelda a Candle for 100 Rupees and a Life Potion for 200 Rupees. She and her husband once ran a locksmith forge for Warbane the dragon, until Warbane had joined Ganon. With the forge closed, the couple were forced to become merchants in town.
In the north is a street called Upper Street, where three additional shops can be found. The red shop is the town's general store, and is run by the Shopkeeper and the Knave. The shopkeeper's dog and a bored, lounging man can be found outside of the shop. The shop only sells one item, the Bone, which can be given to the dog outside for the Short Axe Spell. The white shop covered in vines is home to Madame Kriggle's magic shop, where she sells Zelda a variety of magic spells, including the Rings of Fire, Turquoise Ring, and Jade Amulet Spells. Lastly, the blue shop is the town smithy. The Blacksmith inside complains that the town steals from him, despite living an honest life. Zelda can bring him a piece of Coal to produce the Diamond, which gives Zelda 999 Rupees. The Blacksmith also sells a Candle 100 Rupees.
A yellow house in the east is home to Eric and Ian the twins and their father. Standing next to their house is Yvonne, a music-loving woman who gives Zelda a Flute to help her. The Flute can be played to a snake outside of town near a pond to make it combust, subsequently dropping the Pyros Spell.
- "For thirty suns my husband and I ran the great locksmith forge for Warbane. Then Ganon came and pressed Warbane into service for his own evil plan." — Town Merchant (Zelda's Adventure)
- "The forged was closed! Warbane built a fortified retreat of his own, somewhere off in the Forest of Canvula to the north. We were left with nothing but these trinkets to sell. Perhaps they will be of use to you in the underground. I can not give them up cheap." — Town Merchant (Zelda's Adventure)
- "Hello, little one! I hope I can be of help to you. Did you see my dog out on upper street?" — Shopkeeper (Zelda's Adventure)
- "Who goes there!? Oh, it's a young girl. Don't touch anything! People steal me blind; I know you all hate me! What did I ever do to any of you!? I give an honest bargain and I grind the coal into Rubies. I stay open late and work my fingers to the bone. Do any of you appreciate it? No!" — Blacksmith (Zelda's Adventure)
