You say, "What else is near the village?"

Pongoras says, "Well, there's the mountains to the north, and the coastline all around... if you head northeast and then south, you'll get to the city of White River. You can't trust city folk, though. Be careful if you go there."

—Conversation with Pongoras, Trestin

The village of Trestin is the starting town in the first chapter, Meridell. It is Rohane's home, as well as his Mother's.

Storyline Edit

Tolain says, "I don't understand why all the animals that live in the nearby lands have become so aggressive lately. Why, I used to be able to walk all the way to White River, at night, without having to worry about a thing. Now, I can't even go out during the day without being set upon by ravenous beasts!"

—Conversation with Tolain, Trestin

Trestin is suffering under the unfortunate effects of Ramtor's curse that turned the peaceful animals of the lands into monsters and set them upon Meridell. This is helped less by the fact that the dark cave to the north of Trestin has been filled with vicious creatures.[1] Jimba's flock of babaas has been restless because of attacks from lupes that also howl in the night, and Tolain has been unable to make the trip to White River because of the danger.[2][3]

Inhabitants Edit

Trestin has five residents, not including Rohane. Mother provides what is the game's first "inn" for no price, and Pongoras sells potions.

Mother

Mother

Mother says, "Well hello, dear! Have you been having fun out in the world?"

You say, "I need rest. May I spend the night at home?"

Mother says, "Why, of course, dear! How could I possibly turn you away from the house you grew up in?"

Jimba

Jimba

Jimba says, "Aahh! Oh, sorry, it's just you. I've been a bit on edge lately, with all these nasty creatures roaming around. Why, just the other night, I had to fend off a ravening lupe that tried to eat some of my flock!"

You say, "How is your flock doing?"

Jimba says, "My poor babaas haven't been getting any sleep, what with all the howling that goes on at night. Those crazy lupes out in the wilderness sure are making things difficult, with all that racket."

Marvis

Marvis

Marvis says, "It's too bad that your father isn't still with us to see you going off to adventure. He would have been so proud of you."

You say, "What else do you know about my father?"

Marvis says, "Well, he had kind of a mysterious past. He didn't talk about it much. I think he used to be a soldier or warrior, before he met your mother and settled down to have a family. That's where he supposedly got that sword he left you, anyway. Although if he really had been a soldier, don't you think he'd have kept his armour, too?"

Pongoras

Pongoras

Pongoras says, "The monsters that have been roaming the countryside won't come too close to towns, but there's a cave to the north of here that has all sorts of fiends inside. I wouldn't go there, if I were you. At any rate, if you're going to be out adventuring, I'd recommend staying right near town until you've gained some experience."

You say, "What can you tell me about the cave?"

Pongoras says, "The cave? I think it used to be a mine of some kind, but it's been abandoned since before I was born. I don't think anyone has been in there in years, but with all the monsters infesting it now, I can't imagine that anyone would want to go there!"

You say, "What else is near the village?"

Pongoras says, "Well, there's the mountains to the north, and the coastline all around... if you head northeast and then south, you'll get to the city of White River. You can't trust city folk, though. Be careful if you go there."


After defeating the miner foreman:

Pongoras says, "So, it was an old gold mine, eh? I wonder why it got so infested with undead miners... Well, at any rate, I'm glad you cleared it out."

Tolain

Tolain

Tolain says, "I don't understand why all the animals that live in the nearby lands have become so aggressive lately. Why, I used to be able to walk all the way to White River, at night, without having to worry about a thing. Now, I can't even go out during the day without being set upon by ravenous beasts!"

You say, "What kinds of beasts?"

Tolain says, "Well, the lupes, aishas, and bearogs that live in the plains and forests near here used to be so tame and peaceful -- why, you could walk right up and feed them snacks out of your hand. I even hear that the gelerts that live to the northeast have become hostile."

You say, "Tell me about White River."

Tolain says, "White River is the next nearest settlement. It's a day's walk from here; just go around the mountains to the north, then over the land bridge to the northeast, and follow the coastline south. You can't miss it; it's the only way to cross the river, which is, not coincidentally, called the White River."

Inn Edit

You say, "I need rest. May I spend the night at home?"

Mother says, "Why, of course, dear! How could I possibly turn you away from the house you grew up in?"

—Conversation with Mother, Trestin

Mother acts as the first resting place for Rohane to heal his health. As the rest is free, a common strategy is to level up several times before leaving home.

Shops Edit

Potions Edit

Pongoras says, "Well, I once learned to make a couple of simple magic potions from a wandering wizard. If you want, I can sell you a basic healing vial or a dangerous Flare potion. Careful with the Flare potions -- they're quite explosive! I'll just charge you what it costs me to make the potions; anything more wouldn't be fair, since I've known you your whole life."

—Conversation with Pongoras, Trestin

Pongoras sells the potions in Trestin. He sells only two, the game's first healing potion, the Healing Vial, and the first damage potion, the Flare Potion.
