You'll be in the Ancient Cave area. Push the barrels and go to the marketplace.
You'll be caught by an officer and get in jail. Everyone will get mad at
everyone. Then, the kid will set you free, being tired of the gratzean's
conquests and all. However, you'll have to escort him to Ordens. He also
mentions a secret exit by the item shop, and finally mention his name, Cain.
After you are free, leave the antique (if you need to job change, do it now).

him. Break them to get a Wake-Up Call and a Potion. From there, go south and
east to get a Fire Ball from the jar. North of the Weapon/armor shop are 4
grass patches, cut them to get a Mountain Disc. You may wanna check the weapons
shop. They got new stuff. You can also go back to Cashwell's manor and in the
auction room. There's an alchemist there. Now go south to the city. Near the
exit are 4 grasses, one of them as 100G Go at Torma's house (take the path

It's a tree, it's made from wood, and it burns. Hit it with fire and it won't

Items: Sleep Ball, Boomerang, Daze Ball, 10G, Lak Cheese, Terror Ball, Blue Tea
As you enter the town, go east and cut the 7 grass patches to get a Sleep Ball.
Go east to get to the inn, open the closet to the right to get a Boomerang. Up
near the beds are 2 jars, break them to get a Daze Ball. To the north of the
inn are 2 shops. You can pull a pretty handy trick at the Item Shop: buy 99
Blue Teas for 100G each and sell them for 150G each! The church is north of
town, inside are 2 jars, break them to get 10G. Just east of the church, notice
the man behind the horse, we'll need him later. Go west from the church to
reach 4 grassed with a Lak Cheese. And finally just west of the Weapon shop,
behind the fence is a grass with a Terror Ball.
Now go in the Mayor's Estate (northeast). Maybe you heard it speaking to
townsfolk, but the mayor is giving away her kids to Gratze. As always, Torma is
mad, but now he's got a good reason... Now go outside and talk to Cain. Gratze
want him. But why do they desperately want the mayor's real son?
With that in mind, go check the man stuck behind the horse. He'll mention a
tower, an Ancient Ruin. Now go talk to the mayor. She agrees about the tower,
but lost the key... Then, the town's watch comes and informs of Gratze's
approaching. The mayor asks you to tell her son to hide. So she DOES love him.
Kind of. Go talk to Cain. Then go back inside and through the secret passage
left. Break the jars to get 3 Blue Teas and The Black Key. Go back and talk to
the mayor. Apparently, Hayes, the guy, was a spy from Gratze. He'll steal the
key, and mention the only reason this village is still alive is because no one
could find the key. Don't tell me. Cant find that key??? Wow these guys are
blind or something, or they just hate touching porcelain...
Anyway, they got the key, so they unlocked the tower. So let's just get there.
