Cranktown is the second city you come across during the story progression and takes up two hexes. It is located on Level 7 and is accessible at the start of Chapter 5. Each hex is a different location within Cranktown.
Solam Street Edit
"Located in Basel's middle levels, this town is less than safe. Visitors can find lodging for the night on Solam Street."
The Guild Edit
The Guild provides you with several options where the main option is access to side missions. If you check the Guild's board during game play, you will find notices for jobs. Since you are only allowed three activate side quests at a time, once you complete a couple, return to the Guild to see if more are available. If there are any unfinished side quests when you try to advance to the next chapter, you will be alerted of that.
The Guild will also let you exchange energy hexes special hexes called Energy Stations. These stations can be placed on any Thoroughfare hexagons on the world map, allowing you to save, rest and teleport back to base (If the whole level has been unlocked). They also serve as a way to start laying colored energy hexes anywhere, similar to locked color hexes on the world map.
The Inn Edit
This is where you can pay 100 rubies to sleep the night and restore your health, there's also a wardrobe available there so you can change your clothes and accessories.
Widlar Street Edit
"Located in Basel's middle levels, this town is less than safe. Most basic necessities can be found in shops on Widlar Street"
Cranktown Shop Edit
Cranktown's shop consists of three different parts: The Shop, The Scrapper, and The Tinkerer.
- The Shop: Buys and sells items. More items become available as you progress the story, so make sure to come back often to see what is for sale.
- The Scrapper: This is where you can bring items to be scrapped. Items that have no other use than being scrapped, will say so in the description. It is possible to scrap most items in the game however, so if you have an abundance of certain items, scrapping them for more basic resources could be useful.
- The Tinkerer: This is where you pay for the tinkerer to do your item crafting. Each item requires a certain amount of resources and rubies to make, many which can be purchased in the nearby shop. Like the shop, as you progress the story, he will be able to make more and more items. (Every Tinkerer will have different items they can make, this one being Tier 2)
