**Note: I'd like to emphasize that this quest has just started actual production on the ingame area developments. The plot and story points have already been predetermined and developed as such. No screen shots yet, but I'm hoping that once I can get a decent basis down for the world map I'll be able to post some here.

1. Story
1a. Who are the Knights of the Glass?
-The Knights of the Glass are guardian entities that live in a world unknown to the Hylian population, a world beyond Stained Glass. Yes, Stained Glass. As odd as it may sound, on the other end of a large depiction of the Hero of Time in Stained Glass lies a portal hidden inside the Temple of Time to a world unseen by Hylian eye. A vibrant, colorful world where peace reigned over a population with no idea that a kingdom existed on the other end of a painting inside their shrine.

But, when a dark influence from the Sacred Realm breaks it's binds that imprisoned it there, instead of taking over the land of Hyrule, it seeks out the land beyond the Glass, where a power equal to the Triforce lay dormant.

The guardians of this world are the Knights of the Glass, five powerful warriors who protected this power with their lives. But when the Knights are overthrown and this dark power falls into the grasps of this dark entity, the land beyond the Stained Glass is warped into a dark chaotic place.

Sensing dark powers beyond their control, the three Goddesses, Din, Farore and Nayru, seal this hidden portal beyond the Glass to prevent the evil influence from spreading. But the dark power was too strong, and it broke the binds that held it inside the Stained Glass realm just as it did to it's prison inside the Sacred Realm, and it slowly began to seep out into Hyrule as well.

1b. What does all this have to do with Link?
-This is where Link comes in. Link is the son of a blacksmith, named Fedro. Fedro and Link smithed a majestic blade out of the finest metals Hyrule had to offer, to be presented to the Royal Family as a gift on the one hundred anniversary of the crowning of new Hyrule. Unfortunantly, the dark influence seeped inside Fedro's mineshaft and began to morph the mineshaft into a black tunnel.

When Fedro goes missing on a trip into the mines to recover some more ore, Link begins to worry. When his father is missing for a full day, Link heads down into the mineshaft equipped with nothing more than an iron shield forged by his father. This is where our story begins, as you take control of Link and his adventure inside the mineshaft to find out what happened to Fedro. The story will broaden and eventually, Link will be caught up in the power struggle between the dark entity and the Goddesses, and will spend time in the game traversing both Hyrule and the world beyond the Stained Glass, where he must assemble the five weapons of the Knights and place them in the shrines of the Knights to reform them. Only then, can the Knights attempt to fight back against the evil around them.

1c. So where does this game take place in the timeline?
-This game is placed between two and three hundred years after the events of the Wind Waker. It takes place inside the new Hyrule that Link and Tetra set out to find.

As I said, once I get a solid overworld map in place I'll begin to take some screenshots. Things are still early in development.
