Spear Village is the starting point of the game. Not to mention, the hometown of Thunder and River . Spear Village is seen shortly after Iron arrives within the village. Only to shortly disappear afterwards. In the village, there are various objectives to be done. Some involving the main story and others which are side missions that can be accomplished by interacting with the towns people and taking their requests.
