"An Adventure's Fate
The Fortune Tellers of Hyrule inherited the ability to foretell the future from their ancestors. Some said that the tellers themselves were specially gifted; others though that the real magic was in the crystal balls. It was true that the rare and beautiful crystal balls were handed down from generation to generation, but others who tried to see images in them saw nothing but their own reflections."
"Some travelers waited impatiently for the Fortune Teller to look into the future and listened intently as he told their fortunes."
Fortune Tellers are re-occurring characters that are found in a number of The Legend of Zelda titles.
A Link to the Past
"A Fortune Teller lived in a quaint cottage near one entrance to the Lost Woods. For a price, he would stare deep into a crystal ball to predict the futures of travelers who stopped in. Some people took his predictions seriously and visited him regularly, but others felt that they had wasted their time and money and vowed never to return."
If Link agrees to allow the Fortune Teller to tell his fortune, he will give Link a hint on what he needs to do. Often times these lead to optional items, progressing in the main quest, or other secrets that help Link on his quest. The Fortune Teller will then take somewhere between 10 and 30 Rupees from Link. He wishes Link good health and will then restore his life to maximum.
