When you enter town, head straight to the item shop and buy at least one Dried Meat . You’ll need this later. Then go to the other shops and buy some upgrades for your armor and weapons. The White Cape in the Relic shop is a good choice. If you want to be healed for free, head into the back of the Relic shop and sleep on the bed in the back.
Now, if you want, we can do a mini-sidequest here for a relic.
– Go speak with the wounded soldier in the northeastern house and bring him the requested letter. He’ll speak of wanting to send a letter.
– Speak with the man in the center house, the one with the carrier pigeons. Hand over 500 Gil to send the message. Examine the clock near the man for your Elixir .
– You’ll essentially have to sleep at the Inn or speak with a shopkeeper, then repeat the above steps a few more times, more or less.
After finishing the sidequest, you’ll receive the Tintinnabulum . This Relic is fairly useful as a filler Relic, for it heals the wearer’s HP as he/she walks. Return to the overworld whenever you’re done.
