Piata, town of knowledge and research
From here you are able to take control. But you can not even leave the town because two guards are blocking your way. You have to visit the principal, meet Hahn and finish your first job: eliminating the monsters in the academy basement.
Not much can be bought in Piata; only the Monomate medicine to cure minor wounds. Sleeping in the inn is affordable for everyone. Nowhere all over Motavia can you rest this cheap.
