I haven’t been this frustrated playing a game in a long, long time. Also, I may have done a terrible thing to poor Bttrsctch.
I finally got off the plateau and, well, Hyrule Kingdom has a lot of emptiness (and bad guys). I found a shrines and I even tamed a horse!
I was looking for something to play and settled on Breath of the Wild. In this first installment, I finished the main quest on the plateau.
