This hut is where a sage will give you locations of new dungeons as you progress and knowledge about several items. You just need to know the keywords to get him started.

Note that in the remastered Trilogy one must use apostrophes in possessive nouns; "AG'S ARROWS" rather than "AGS ARROWS" and so forth.
