|There’s a Town Around Here|
As you enter you will learn about Linking, which allows you to pull off impressive strategies to gain additional AC from combat, protect your flank from surprise attacks, and link Artes to perform devastating attacks.
Start by heading forward and right to get the skit There’s a Town Around Here and then continue to a Life Bottle just before you reach the blocked road and then turn around and head southwest to a chest with Apple Gel x2 by some trees. Keep going northwest, getting the 600 Gald from a chest on the north wall, and then head for the zone in the northwest.
Hug the northern wall and make your way west to a chest with Saffron and then head east and south to another chest with Weird Fragment x4 . Continue south for a scene, boss fight, and a tutorial on Over Limits. After the battle, grab the chest with a pair of Boots inside and then make your way back to town, getting the skit Alvin’s Arsenal on the way if you haven’t already.
|Sub Events Checklist|
|The Monster Lies|
Return to the girl to turn in the sub event for the Item Sphere and 2000 Gald , as well as a scene.
This unlocks the Auto-Item system that allows the AI to use your items based on certain contitions. I suggest you check the settings for this by going to the Strategy menu and hitting Start and change them to what you desire, remembering that using Gels through Auto-Item will cause you to miss a skit later.
Watch the skit Intelligence Work and then head to the Inn and talk to the man behind the counter. After a quick scene you can now access the Food Vendor next to the innkeeper.
When you’re ready head toward the town exit and rejoin Alvin for a new skit, Creeping Suspicion . You can also get the following sub events before leaving town:
- **The Monster Lies** - Talk to the girl who gave you the previous monster event.
- **The Legendary Flavor** - Talk to the Apprentice Chef at the bottom of the main steps.
- **Fruit Seller** - Talk to the Fruit Merchant to the left of the Inn.
You can buy Soda Rice (Small) from the Food Vendor at the Inn and turn it in to the Apprentice Chef for the **Bushy Eyebrows** attachment and **1200 Gald** .
